Carb clean without removing carbs
« on: March 04, 2017, 05:44:24 PM »


Since getting the air box off a gv250 sucks  I'm going to trying to clean the carbs  on the bikes Looking at gt250 always thought I could almost do the carb clean in the bike so I tried it on this GV 250 that I picked up today.. I took the pilot Jets out clean them sprayed everything down with carb cleaner in an aerosol can. Ran a piece of wire through the ports that I usually do. Threw it back together and idols great mid-range is ok full throttle sucks. Going to try it again with the carbs on to see if it can be done.

Side not the guy was claiming he cant get any power so i need a cdi. Lucky for me he didnt check the fuse.

I RERALLY HATE these freaking air boxes!!!!
I've been trying off and on to get the air box to seat properly on this dang 250.
Seems almost impossible.  >:(

Gonna give it one more go today if not I might be looking in to filter pods.

What about putting the carbs into the airbox before fitting them to the inlet manifolds of the bike?

I've never had the pleasure to offer any advice. Having said that, I think ive only ever seen one GV and the owner crapped it when I approached him.

There a comment somewhere on here that says something like.... loosen up the one of the intake boots... or..... attach one intake boot to the carb....

My personal remedy is not to buy any more gv250's ;)

Never had any problems with the airbox. One intake is angled and one is straight up and down.
Slide on the angled one and then just push down for the straight one.
