Quick carb question

Post by Irishman1 »

I’m in the middle of putting my 1980 carbs back together after cleaning, repair and rebuilding. I unfortunately had a 4 mounts delay in re-installing them. I’ve done my 1979 and my 1981 cbx carbs and now I can’t remember if the 1980 uses the rubber jet tower plugs or not?! Mike Nixon’s book doesn’t specifically say between models and I just don’t remember.....lol

Thanks in advance

The rubber plugs are only on the 79 carbs

Only VB60 and VB61 use the plugs. Just make sure the carbs on your bike are not either of those.
