Have purchased your Keihin CX/GL Carburetor rebuilding book. And, I've now read the book from cover to cover. Very good.

I've had these carbs open before, and have used carb cleaner dutifully, using new gasket kits, only to improve throttle response and performance A LITTLE. I was not aware of the presence of some of these tubes and the need to remove them. But your pictures make it clear why. I also see through Internet research that these emulsion tubes and other important carb parts can still be purchased. Woo-Hoo! And I was surprised to see how the overflow tubes split. That might explain the slight gas smell on the 80-CX. But we will see in the next several weeks!

Now, I need to buy a couple of new tools before I get started.
