3 Barrel Keihin Breakdown. Part #1

3 Barrel Keihin Breakdown. Part #1


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!
