Actually, that LOOKS pretty clean.

Everything's ready for a good soak.

I learned early on that a poly egg container was NO GOOD for working with gas and carb cleaner - I melted quite a bit of one before switching to fiber-based!

The needle has a little plastic washer with a locating pin, which needs to fit into....

..that little hole just off-center in there.

All snapped together and ready for the upper and lower brackets to hold them together. She fired up and ran like a dream!

Sportrack detail. Rear part of the bracket is held on by the turn-signal mount and the front part is held on with the bolts that hold the rear fender up off of the tire.

Close-up of rear part of the mount.

The rack does wrap nicely around the tail, I must say.

Looking at the FRONT of the rack mount from up under the rear fender

Rear support on the turn-signal mount. The problem with this nut is that the rear side panels under the tailpiece are removed by taking off the front bolt and rotating the piece of plastic downwards. With the rack in place there is no room for downward motion so the only option was to push the side piece out of the little locator bracket in the rear. Not an ideal way to disassemble!

A look down the throats of carbs 1,2 & 3. Yeesh!

#3 and #4 - looking a little less than sparkling clean.

Inside the float-bowl chamber of carb #1. Yuck!

Take a look at all of that goop on the main jet. The "top" end of it in this photo is the bottom of the jet where it SHOULD take up gas to neatly mix it with air. Some of those holes are plugged.
