The parts themselves look good and the rubber is supple. Of course there is varnish but that's what the Berryman is for. I was also under the impression that no rubber or plastic could go into the Berryman, however, they say otherwise for the 0996 product and their website also says it's safe.

As for the screws. The service manual doesn't say but are they M4 12mm?

They are all the same thread pitch and diameter, but vary in length. I just took a sample to my local specialty fastener store and they matched them up, so not sure of the specs.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

I found a parts diagram and they are M4 - 0.70 14mm in case anyone later comes along and needs this info.

C6Silver - I'm going to suggest that you removed the bolts that hold the bracket that the side covers screw into. Of course remove the side covers, then the bracket they screw into, find the bolts (one on each side of the bike from my memory), then slide this bracket down. It makes the carb much easier to install and remove. And that bracket is not so difficult to put back in place. Much easier than fighting the bracket to get the carb on / off.

Appreciate the suggestion. In fact I noticed this as well when taking the carb out. The bottom of the card would hit this bracket. Unfortunately I was not able to get the bracket out and wound up getting the carb out before spending more time with it. The bracket bolts were behind battery wires that were difficult to remove and it seemed I could not get a good grip on it with my socket. If I can get it out, I definitely agree that would make it much easier. I just got the chem dip and replacement screws today so soon I will be trying all of this out. I just wish I could test things before having to put it all back. So painful if it doesn't work.

2 things: 1. I seem to remember a battery cable getting in the way on the right side. I believe I moved it sufficiently out of the way and got the socket on the bolt and moved the cable back when done. And 2, as I recall after removing the bolts the bracket will move down. And just moving it down a bit (from my memory) is enough. And just sliding it down makes it easier to put back. Removing it might be a PITA.

My biggest flaw when working on vehicles is my hesitancy to remove pieces and parts. I'm always concerned I'm not going to be able to get the parts back together. ALWAYS. However I've never failed to put stuff back together right, except when I was a kid. But my reluctance to remove pieces and parts has frequently bit me ITA and made things take SO MUCH LONGER and cause work to be MUCH MORE DIFFICULT.
