Question about 2004 Triumph Triumph Bonneville
What tools/parts do I need in order to properly clean the carburetor?
Posted by Anonymous on
I don't know that bike specifically but most are clamped with phillips head screws and you'll likely need 8mm and/or 10mm wrenches for the cables. The bowls are usually held on with phillips screws. Inside you'll need flat head screwdriver that fits the jets well and probably a 6mm or 8mm wrench to remove the jet holders/emulsion tubes. In many cases you can just spray them with carburetor cleaner with the little red straw in them to make some pressure and be done, if it won't spray through you may need to poke them out with a wire. I pull a strand of copper out of electrical wire and use that. Don't use a steel pin or poker, you don't want to damage the orifice of the jet. Be careful not to put pressure against the floats once you are inside, the needle valves can be damaged somewhat easily.

Here is a link to a bike parts outfit that I have had good luck with. This link should take you directly to the Carb kits you can get. These are the things you need to do a partial or complete rebuild. It's sometimes better to replace with new, as they are cheap, as long as you are tearing it apart to clean.

I have taken them off a hobby before,you need to undo the inlet manifold clamps and the airbox clamps ,take the side panels and tank off and take the battery out.then undo the bolts securing the airbox and push it back off the carbs as far as it will go then pull the carbs out of the inlet manifolds and slide them out to the left side.remove the float bowls and the jets and make sure they are clear.But the most important thing to check is the small filters in the two T pieces between the carbs that the fuel lines go onto these always blocks up on triumphs.pull the pipes off the t pieces and pull out the two small sock shaped filters that are in them clean out and replace.make sure the carbs are balanced afterwards too with vacuum gauges.
