    A coworker has a Honda ShadowAce 1100 (v-twin) and is wanting help in rebuilding his carbs.

    I've rebuilt and jetted a standard carb before, however I haven't worked on a bike at all. Easy, hard, ? Is there a difference between the method of jetting a Honda bike carb as opposed to a car carb? I'd hate to tell him that I can help him and then not have any clue whatsoever. I figure that a carb is a carb is a carb, but these days, who knows?

    Thanks :)

    If you are able to tear down a car carb, you shouldn't have much trouble working on a bike carb. Just remember to keep track of all the little parts and have the right tools on hand to make adjustments.

    If you've done car carbs, a bike carb should be easy. Exact same stuff.

    :cool: The fact that it's gravity fed shouldn't make any impact, right? This is why I love fuel injection :o
