I use ERC carb dip with great results in a 50/50 fuel mix. Brass parts and carb bodys are shining like new after severel hours.
I would donor a test sample unit to you if you are interested.
 

 

I'd be very interested and grateful

OK ED, you have been on a roll here with carbs. Don't forget about the 76 26mm KZ carbs. I never seen the white nylon ring in the rubber grommets? They were used on the 28mm Z1 carbs, maybe someone just thought they were helping it with some old Z1 parts??   Suzuki GS 2 valve 750/1000 used 26mm also. Zuki's had a little different linkage.
Now I have a question for you.
I've never liked or re-did the CV carbs. But I have this set of 34's off of an 81 J-model 1100.
Are they worth re-doing then selling? Or is it a waste of many hours and 4 cheap kits, to make a few bucks? A friend of mine gave them to me for $20 bucks after he parted out a craigslist engine.
Someone spray bombed them black???  I would glass bead the bodies if I do take  these apart. (got to be real careful with media on that cheap pot aluminum) I use "POTTERS" 13 mic.
The slides move, I just pushed them up before the pictures. They seem all there?
I just don't want to do all the work if they are not worth much?
I still sell a little on eBay.

Those carbs will be worth some good money after a proper rebuild.  eBay item number: 293416872359 - this is an O-ring and gasket kit for $28 shipped in the CONTUS.  Don't waste money on "rebuild kits."  

The choke shaft uses tiny spring loaded balls to create the detent.  Be sure not to lose the parts when you take the carbs apart.

ERC doesn't seem available here in the USA.  Bummer.  More common carb dips like Berryman's have shot up in price here, almost double from a few years ago.

Thanks Ed, good to know now about choke parts, as I have no parts diagram, I would have just started dis-assembling.
I always agreed with you on the brass items, just clean them, change out O-rings and gaskets.
Yes I see the Berrymans at the local Wallymart is up to $49.99.

Chem-Dip is made by Berryman's.  I just bit the bullet and bought a 5 gallon pail of the good chlorinated stuff.  I'm in California, and hope the order doesn't get canceled.

Edit: damn, just notices a couple of the float bowls are installed wrong direction.  It's always something...
Hopefully, fixed...
