Have finally gotten around to disassembling the carbs that I took out of the bike a while ago...

Mostly went pretty smoothly, except for one screw :P impact stripped it, cutting a slot in it with a hack saw and trying to use a plain-blade failed, so out came the reverse-thread drill bit...

bastard. should be easy to replace though...

oh. that doesn’t look good... That right there is likely about 80% of the problem. I’m still kind of terrified that the gas washdown into the cylinder damaged the rings and/or liner... (if you can’t see, there is a pretty significant grove instead of a nice clean sealing cone.)

well, time to order some parts and soak some things in carb cleaner. The mid-speed jets look awful, and there was a ton of crud in the bottom of the choke-side bowl, probably not quite deep enough to get sucked into the main jet, but ugly nonetheless...
