Took the BST Carb off of my 1992 last night to take it apart and clean it.
I also purchased a carb off of ebay for a 1993. The one I purchased is in a LOT better shape.
The slide, slide guide, etc. are a lot cleaner and make that carb seem to have a lot less miles than the one on the bike.
I have a couple of specific questions I am having a hard time finding answers to:
- in some parts references there is a question for "R/S" or "N/P" - how would I know which carb I have or are they the same regardless ?
(I am worried I may have messed up the needle valve trying to remove it and was looking what a new one would cost and got challenged with whether it was an "R/S" or "N/P" bike.
- in the parts diagram at this link what does the hose (item 38) connect to? I have a port for that on the purchased (93) carb but it has been filled with solder on the carb that is on the bike.http://www.mrcycles.com/fiche_section_d ... &fveh=1915
I did look at the BST Bible which was very helpful and I searched this site and a couple of others and couldn't figure it out.
I AM planning on putting the 93 carb on for now because I think the old one needs a rebuild, not just a cleaning. In fact, I may just keep it for parts if the 93 works. Long term I may upgrade carbs to one of the better options.
