Lets start with a complete carb as see in the attachments.

Disassembly Instructions

To begin the disassembly.

Remove the 4 screws on top.






Remove the spring from the diaphram assembly






Remove the carb needle stay, then remove the diaphram assembly.












If you are going to shim the needle you will need a wash that will fit into the recess on the bottom of the diaphram

Remove the large phillips screw from the throttle body side






Remove the 4 screws holing the float bowl.








Remove the float assembly, slide the pin out one side and remove, remove the float needle also, being careful not to damage the point.






Remove the slow jet

Remove the main jet assembly








Inspect the float bowl




Remove the 3 screws from the bottom & remove the assembly.









To reassembly..... reverse the steps.


When installing the diaphragm, make sure it is seated in the groove before putting the metal cover on top. If needed, put a little Vaseline in the groove to help keep the diaphragm in place while installing the cover.

Cool Carburetor Rebuild Video

All pictures no audio explaining and showing each part.. If you can clean it then the remainder is easy.. Just be ready to click PAUSE. The recommended method for cleaning a carb is soaking it in Berrymans Chem Dip for 24-48 hours. Cleaning the holes in a brass jet with a steel wire is not recommended. the best use of this video is to show most, but not all of the various carb parts.

Enjoy!

Carb Problem

Thorough cleaning of the carb is best done by soaking only the metal parts in Berrymans Chem Dip for 24 hours or longer. In addition to the carb rubber gaskets, the carb drain and air/fuel (pilot) screw have O-rings on them. The float valve has a rubber tip and the float is plastic. None of these items go in the Chem Dip; it will ruin them.

After soaking, the parts should be removed from the Chem Dip, rinsed thoroughly with water and all the openings (jets and passageways) in the carb blown out with compressed air. Skipping any of these steps may result in a carb that isn't clean.

Thanks Big_J. I used your pictures and info to remove and clean the carburetor on my 2004 250 Rebel. It was easier than I expected.

After you remove the two nuts (that are holding the carb to the motor) then remove the two screws. The carb will come right out. That if you follow all the other directions
