  • 2000 Road Star 1600 Carburetor removal?

    Hello all..

    Can anyone tell me if I will need to remove the Gas Tank in order to take my Carb out? I am going to install a new Jet Kit.

    Thanks.

    Yes the tank needs to come off but it can be removed in just a couple minutes.

      Some real good YouTube videos on removal/installation and rebuilding of Roadstar carb.

          I'd recommend the barons PMS. Comes separate from the rebuild kit, makes adjusting the pms a breeze.

            davej I hear you. I live in AZ and regularly spend time (days) up in the mountains. Having quick access is nice... though certainly not essential.

            spending time in the mountains should not require a pms adjustment on a stock CV carb. If you are making adjustments on a CV carb because you are riding at a different elevation it is because you have tinkeritis not because the carb needs adjusted because it don't.

          Just FYI you can completely rejet the carburetor without removing it from the bike. That is if the bowl screws aren't stuck. Just removing and reinstalling the carb is a real pain.

            If the carb has already been jetted....if not you have to deal with welch plug over PMS screw and you ain't drilling that out while carb is on bike....plus those bowl screws are a pain and I would NOT want to try to remove those while carb is on bike. Remove it..clean and lube the cables....check the intake real good....
