  • Changing the Coasting Enrichener cover

    Hi fellow Roadstar riders -
    I’ve ordered a new Coasting Enrichener cover for my Carby, apart from carefully removing without losing the spring inside is there anything else I need to know?

    Look the diaphragm over carefully to make sure it’s not damaged.

      The diaphragm is Reinforced Viton, and should be good, but yeah, look it over real good. Clean any deposits off the plunger and plate, and you can even put a real light coat of engine oil on the plunger when you re-assemble.


      Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

          I have found the plunger seized in the bore on a few. If yours is seized work at it until you get it out and try to clean the surfaces so it operates properly. If not cleanable you will need a new diaphragm/plunger.

            I haven’t checked yet, all this can be done with the carby in place?

              It can, but you have to be creative on the tool you use for the back screw closest the the cylinder head. I think I used a Phillips driver bit and an ignition wrench to get the screw in and out.

                You should be able to loosen the screw on the clamp that holds the carb in the carb boot on the manifold, and wiggle the carb out far enough for easier access.

                  Great, hopefully it arrives this week together with my new brake lines. Should make for an interesting weekend.
