STRIPPING THE FRAME
REJETTING THE CARBURETORS
- Remove the fuel tank, seat, and battery. Disconnect negative terminal first.

- Remove rear wheel and suspension components. See Chapter Ten.
- Remove lighting and other electrical equipment. Remove wiring harness. See Chapter Seven.
- Remove the kickstand and centerstand.
- Remove bearing races from steering head tube with a wooden drift. See Chapter Nine.
- Check the frame for bends, cracks, or other damage, especially around welded joints and areas which are rusted.
- Assembly is the reverse of these steps.
Do not try to solve a poor running engine problem by rejetting the carburetors if all of the following conditions hold true.
If those conditions all hold true, the chances are that the problem is due to a malfunction in the carburetor or in another component that needs to be adjusted or repaired.
- The engine has held a good tune in the past with the standard jetting.
- The engine has not been modified.
- The motorcycle is being operated in the same geographical region under the same general climatic conditions as in the past.
- The motorcycle was and is being ridden at average highway speeds.
Changing carburetion jet size probably won't solve the problem. Rejetting the carburetors may be necessary if any of the following conditions hold true.
