Whew. This was a pain since I'm on a slow dial-up, but actually some of them DO work. I thought at first there was a method to the madness (like thread age) but perhaps not.

If I understood it correctly, despite being somewhat new myself, there was some kind of thread loss due to a change or accident in the forum. You could Search for the reason or ask one of the veterans for more info.

The following link remain working (at least for me, as of this post):

they used to all work back before the debug delete

and if you think just verifying a ready-made listing of them was a waste of time
just try to imagine having to wade through ALL the threads on the forum to cull them out in the first place

Anyone know if taking the carb off to clean it out requires anything special? IE Carb Kit and if so where can I get a kit for a reasonable price?

You can get by without any gaskets, etc., if they aren't already shot. Just be careful with the dis-assembly process. More fun than a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle.

One question: Is it possible to take the carberator off without removing the fuel tank or does it make it a lot easier to remove and install?

Here's a nice description on how the carburetor works.

What would you recommend for cleaning the parts out of the carb?

Would seafoam clean jets and needles or would a carb cleaner be better?

I'm thinking of using a cotton swab with cleaner on it to clean out the nooks of the carb, but I'm a little worried about getting cotton junk left in the carb. I could use cosmetic applicators if you think they'd be better.

You don't want to leave anything behind in the carb. The "standard" implements have been various gauges of wire to clean openings. I don't know of any brushes small enough to work, so I'm mentioning that in hopes of learning about something new.

The best approach is to remove all of the plastic and rubber stuff and the then soak with carb cleaner. An ultrasonic soaking chamber would be ideal (they had one for rapidograph pen points in a drafting shop; I don't know who else might have them besides a small engine shop). Carb cleaner is not cheap and VERY aggressive; use with care.

However, if the carb isn't really bad, a cleaning and seafoam in a few tanks of gas should do the trick. I'd try up to half of the seafoam first and see if that alone was sufficient -- plus it's a good excuse to go for a ride or three.

HA!

Actually, I can see how you'd think that. Or perhaps really cruel tools for the 'other end' :lol:

but no; they are tools designed to clean and maintain tiny orrifi such as found in carburetors, furnace jets, etc.

HARBOR FREIGHT has several ultrasonic cleaners - pick your size; just claim you bought it to clean the stuff in the jewelry box!

Just bought a 2002 rebel 250 and it looks and sounds like I have a carb problem so any help would be appreciated -- drawlings etc. will start by removing, installing a filter, disassembly, cleaning and re assembly??? Seems there is only one carberator.
Thanks for any help you can supply
