Default 87 CBR1000F Carburetor Rebuild


Greetings All,

I am brand new here, and recently acquired an 87 CBRF1000 with 8500 miles on it. It was owned by an old friend I had not seen in some years. It looks close to new, but obviously it needs a needs much TLC to be back on it's feet as a reliable rider. As part of this minor restoration, I am servicing the carbs. I have cleaned them thoroughly and installed new idle jets, float needles, idle mixture screws, and diaphragms. I am ready to put them back on the linkage, but I have two small aluminum rings/washers that I have no idea where they belong. I have looked at the parts diagram, ans do not see them anywhere. I see no place for them on the actual carbs. Maybe they are somewhere in the connection between the paired carbs ? I would be very grateful if some one can ell me what these are/where they go. Thank you! Mark

No one seems to recognize these as part of the carburetor system. I also know I did not remove these as part of the disassembly ( One fell out when handling the whole assembly ). I am not sure where they came from ( maybe fell in the carb linkage from above when removing the tank and/or seat.). Thanks all for having a look.
I will put the carb system back together.

There's only two places that washers that I know of for the carb assembly are; 1. for the pilot circuit. They are much smaller than what you have pictured. The 2nd is for the fuel enrichment circuit. They are for the mounting bracket and spring thing. I don't think what you have is part of that though.

Thank you. After completely tearing down the entire assembly, I sure didn't want to do that again. I'm sure by the time I get the carbs tuned, I will have no desire to own a CBX.

Like many things in life, the 1st times always the worst.

If the carbs don't kill you, the shim and buckets would. Welcome to the forum.
