PostSubject: Honda-Clipping the Carb Spring   Thu May 22, 2008 2:31 pm

I was skeptical on this until I finally did it last night. Rancher1977 had done it to his rancher so while at his house helping him do some valve adjustments on his bike and rancher we did this to mine. Takes about 15 minutes to do. It will greatly improve throttle response. I noticed it the most when taking off in 1st or 2nd gear.

Take the seat off.
Under the seat you will need to take the two rivets out and pull back the rubber cover that is over the top of the carb.
Looking at the top of the carb you'll see a silver top plate with 4 screws. Take them out and remove the cover. Be carefull to have everything clean around it and also while removing the cap take not that the slide spring is compressed in there.
Once you have the cover off remove the spring (it just sits there). The spring is very long.
Count 10 coils from one end of the spring and cut the spring. When putting everything back together put the cut end of the spring towards the top cover and re-assemble.

This will allow the slide in the carb to open quicker.
I couldn't tell much difference once i was out of second gear but the take off is a difference of night and day.
For instance, even with doing a pipe, jet kit, air filter i was only able to get the front wheels off the ground in 1st gear by maybe a couple inches. Now I can take off and stand it straight up in 1st gear, 2nd now takes off like 1st used to. A nice little no cost mod for you honda poeple!

None that I know of, unless you just don't like how it will act. Worst thing is you just buy another carb spring which shouldn't be that much.

I have heard about this for a long time just never got around to doing it.

I'm not familiar with the carb on a 300ex so I'm not sure how it would affect it. Most everything I know of it to be done on is ranchers and foremans ,recons etc. If the carb setup is similar it should work. I know on my foreman the throttle cable goes into the side of the carb and the needle works of vacuum. make the spring shorter=less resistence on the vacuum which allows the slide to come up quicker.

let us know how yours does!

I know most of the Riders here don't ride Honda & it's a older thread.....But!

I have been thinking about doing this to my 500 Foreman and have been searching the Forums for the past week or so looking for a Complete Write up, One thing I Noticed Mike, you didn't post anything about Drilling out the plug to 7/16"-1/8", off to the side of the Rubber Vacuum Boot.

Reason I ask is this is a fairly well known simple Mod to anything with a CV Carb, Ive done it to a few Harley's even but it was WELL over 10-12 years ago...... (here's the part where you get to Laugh at me) And I forgot almost everything I done to them! Hair Pull

their is other stuff one can do to these type Carbs with out having to re-jet! but for the life of me I cant remember what it was but I do remember Buffing something out to a Mirror Finish which was a big improvement

if anybody knows of a link where it tells about some of the other Mods please post it.....BTW: the Dyna Jets are a waste of Money for this type of application, a tiny washer works just as good and don't cost anything!

Thanks
