It’s fundamental to clean a motorcycle’s carburettor after a certain number of kilometres or if its operation isn’t fluid. A motorcycle’s carburettor is its nerve centre in which everything revolves around. It is a very sophisticated component consisting of many parts that have different and essential functions. Some of these parts can be variously adjusted to change the air/petrol ratio or to run the engine cold, at maximum, at minimum, etc. It’s important to note that each motorcycle manufacturer installs different types of carburettors on its different models.
Carburettors can also be very different from each other, even if they share the same operating principle. Regardless, motorcycle owners must carry out routine maintenance and cleaning on the carburettor, without causing problems such as the calibration of jets and air intakes or the incorrect adjustment of the minimum, maximum etc. For these reasons, before proceeding with (ordinary or extraordinary) motorcycle carburettor maintenance, it’s essential to refer to the manual of the motorcycle and carburettor.
