You screwed then up. The only ones that were removable where in the 1980 '80 650 bowls, I don't recall the 750 bowl having a removable jet… Dec 20, 2018

      Hey man, got a problem with my 550 carbs I believe. The bike has not run in a while and when I try to start it, it sounds like its being starved of fuel, also just got the starter rebuilt and a new starter relay. when I turn the fuel on or on prime, fuel starts coming out of the first carb towards to air box side. Have you seen this before, and does the carb need to be rebuilt?

      Looking for two float bowls hopefully with clear starter jets for 82 Seca750. I pulled them out with and ez out cause in the service manual they looked to be replaceable. Rich

      hogfiddles, I am new here but would love some help. My 1980 yamaha sx 850 with hitachi carbs needs help. Do you have or know of another member who has a good diagram for Hitachi H34C carbs. My clymer book is not much help when it comes to rebuilsing these. Would be great to have a diagram that is more specific for my rebuild on these. Thanks for any help you can provide

      Hello, I recently purchased two 1982 XJ550 Seca’s. I’m going to make one viable bike out of the two. Do you still offer a carb rebuilding and cleaning service? If so can you let me know a price. I’m actually not too far from your area. I’m near Albany NY. Sorry if this was the wrong way to contact you, I’m new here and couldn’t find how to PM.

      Thanks in advance
      Bill

      Afternoon hogfiddles,
      Like many before, I'm resurrecting an '82 550 seca, and am in need of a handful of shims. From my readings, it seems you are one of a few that might still run a shim pool, so I am curious if I can purchase these from you. Five in total: 260(x1), 265(x2), 275(x2)
