When I first started cleaning carburetors I always did a very meticulous job. I would carefully remove each piece one at a time. I would note which carb body each piece came from so not to mix anything up. I would soak and clean and soak and clean the carburetor rack and internals until they were absolutely spotless. It worked great.
However, overtime I realized I could do an equally effective job in a matter of minutes. Through the years I have torn down probably 50 different carburetor racks and each time I do it I do a seemingly more carless job. . . . . but I’m actually much better at it overall. You wouldn’t want to see how I organize them now! It isn’t pretty.
This is the PVL Coil and CDI combination unit from my 1994 KTM. This is an upgraded unit from stock and is very difficult to come by these days for less than $500. This unit has the CDI components built right into the coil creating a much more reliable unit that provides better (and more tunable) spark. A very cool upgrade for any off road competition bike.
