I just wanted to let everyone know that the carb cleaning service Flyin900 provides is top-notch.
I purchased a used 2004 Honda Rebel and could not get the idle to hold when at low RPM. It was either dying at stop signs or howling like a banshee. I took the carb off, opened it up, sprayed a bunch of cleaner in it, but no joy.
I knew that I wasn't ready to tackle carb rebuilds, so I searched the forum and found this post. I decided to send it to Flyin900 because I believed I'd get personalized service. He warned me about shipping costs and the delay due to shipping it from California, but for me, having the carb done right so I'd have piece of mind was the deciding factor in sending it to him. I'm so glad I did.
The turnaround time from when Flying900 received the carb and when he had it back in the mail on it's way to me was about 2-3 days over a weekend. He wasted no time and kept me informed along the way. In addition to cleaning, he replaced the float based on his carb knowledge. I would never had known what I was looking at.
I got the carb back, installed it in the bike and.....VROOM! The bike started right up, ran up the RPM's smoothly, and most of all, held idle at low RPM. I took it out for a 2 mile ride with plenty of take-offs, stop signs, and shifting. Through it all the bike ran beautifully.
Thanks, Flyin900 for the excellent service!!!
If anyone else out there needs carb work, I heartily recommend this service!
