3 Barrel Keihin Breakdown. Part #1

Keihin3Barrel

Ever wondered why there’s so many strange gadgets on the body of your Keihin? What do they do? Why are they there? Are they important? What would you do for a Klondike bar? What’s the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow? Where am I going with these questions? In this latest video I go over the various parts found on a 3 barrel Keihin carburetor, as found on most early models. Your own particular carb may be slightly different, but most of the components are similar. Please take a seat and watch as my hairy assistant and I walk you through what the various pieces do.

In part 2 of this video I’ll talk in general about about how a carb works, give you a few troubleshooting tips, and even help you tune and adjust your Keihin after a rebuild or needle & seat or float replacement.  Stay Tuned!

    Is there a part 2? I’m wondering what the vacuum line to the acclerator pump does? My ’81 1500dx is hesistating on acceleration from a stop once it’s warmed up. I was hoping for a more knowledgeable run through on the carb and your part 1 was great. Thanks.
