Suzuki GSXR 750 Slabside what year?

Hi Oscar

Sorry haven't replied,haven't been on the site lately,been livin life:smilea bit.Anyway what year and model is the bike,what model Keihin flat slide has it got,have these been fitted at a later date,or is your bike a R or SP and fitted with them as standard?Thing is the slides should just lift out of the top of the carb once disconnected from the lifters? the carb body's shouldn't be separated(don't dismantle by undoing the Torx screws) best thing to do is have them put in a sonic bath until everything comes good,lube up with a light spray oil,then keep an eye on them and keep them lubed up for the rest of there life.Scoring on the slides on flat slides doesn't make a lot of difference really unless its very excessive,(are your slides on rollers?) so don't worry about that,most flat slides are a bit loose and rattle a bit so don't worry about the fit to much.Hope this help a bit?Good Luck

Dunno why i put kehin they are mikuni t6  stamped on the side.

it's a 1986 gsxr mate and i can't see how they managed to stick shut unless the lifting bar had seized but i had a look at them the other day and they had stuck shut again currently got them spread across the dining room table ......all the jets have been cleaned out and it looks to me that these have an accelerator pump with a jet spraying into the mouth of the carbs a...ihave had these to bits...... just ain't tackled the slides yet going to do that in a bit ...all the accelerator pump holes in the float bowls were fuckin blocked solid and some fekker has bent some of the nozzles but i have removed them also and cleaned them out



 the slides ain't on rollers how do the slides come out ???? looks like there is a r clip holding them in ....or do you need to remover the lifter bar or just detach the spring  ? anyway given up for tonight and started on the brewskis  

i wish i bought that 3 litre ultrasonic cleaner off ebay the other day now:upset:

Status Update

Got em back together Didn't take the slides out though as i've lost my 3mm allen key ....... First Bank of them i've taken to bits

They really are a work of art them buggers i have worked in a few jobs and  Mechanic / Then machinist and i can appreciate how much thought / design /machining /assemblythat has gone into them ...... gonna buy a second hand ultrasonic cleaner next though cause it would have made sooo much difference to the finished carbs

ain't fitted em yet got sidetracked with a sick nc30


P.S kc  It's the two cap heads on the top of the slides isn't it :biggrin:
