The carbs cleaned up nicely! They looked not bad in the "before" photo...no oxidation in the jet area.
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

The carbs were pretty dirty.
Glass beaded top covers and float bowls.



>>> "1 - 2 fuel T is missing."
Tees were loose, I replaced them.

I soak the Tees in gas for 24 hours to get them to swell up.
