Carb cleaning
« on: February 02, 2017, 01:56:23 PM »
I need to clean my carbs out so that my Symba will stop stalling and purr like it use to. However, I don't know how to do this and I'm more of a visual learner. Could someone post or link me to a video tutorial on how to properly clean the carbs on a Symba? Or, at the very least could someone post step by step picture illustration on how this is done, how to drain the gas, cleaning the carbs, removing the right screws, how to clean the carb with the little brush scrubber and how to properly put the screws and carbs back on? I'm still learning my Symba like I just bought it yesterday when in actuality I've had it for 2 years now! I'd highly appreciate any feedback! Thanks in advance!

1. Buy these...I have them and they're good for small jets...

2. Buy a can of aerosol carb jet cleaner (available at any auto parts store).

3. Remove carb, Remove bowl (on bottom of carb). This gives access to jets. Pilot jet is normally the main culprit that clogs from old fuel. Use the wires to reopen any clogged holes in any of the jets. Then spray carb jets with cleaner make sure all holes in jets are clear and open by carefully examining (Light can be seen through the holes).

4. Reassemble carb and reinstall...If you did everything correct then your bike will run better and if it was a clogged jet it will run MUCH BETTER.

5. Instructions here with video...

I'm very visual myself, and I've found the service manual to a great help. Lots of step-by-step help, pictures of everything. Keep it on my phone and it's always at my fingertips. I'm sure you can find it linked somewhere in here.
