Hi there folks! Can anyone help me I was sold a bank of carbs from a dishonest Ebayer! I was told they were off the 750,but when I recieved them they were off the GPX600! They look the same and they fit ok,but they have a pipe that links each float bowl underneath and the pipe comes out on the right hand side. Does anyone know if these carbs will work or will I have to change anything on them Regards Mark

Looking through the Haynes manual, they look the same. I know the carbs on my 750 have nipples on the float bowls that aren't connected to anything - but mine's not running yet so can't be sure. I guess if they fit they'll be OK.

Other thing is, on mine each carb is the same as all the others, just with rubber stoppers over some of the outlets/inlets. I'd guess the 600 would be the same to save money.

Hope that helps. Let me know how you get on!

If they're the same diameter and fit they should work. You will have to change the jetting in them as a 750 is more than likely going to need more fuel than a 600.

First, find out the stock jet sizes needed. Look around for a jet kit for a 750 that has STOCK or NEAR STOCK jets included or you can probably ask your dealer for some help.

Just don't use the jets in it unless they're the right size. Your engine will run lean and that's very bad.

Thanks for that advice Jimmy, by the way, I hope the weather's better in your Halifax than in mine (I'm in Halifax, West Yorkshire, England!) What a coincidence!

Cheers,

Regards

I'm sure it's about the same :biggrin: There's a reason we were named "New Scotland". November is a grab-bag, two days ago it was -5ºC and today it was 12º. This is why I don't pack up the bike until there's salt on the road.
