Old School Carb Rehab
The carbs on my 99 GP1200 had all the paint coming off and were starting to corrode externally.
I completely stripped them down removed all the hardware. I cleaned them, then glass bead blasted them.
After coming out of the bead blaster I again cleaned them, then I chem-film coated them with Alodine.
I then masked and coated them with black epoxy.
This was a time consuming process but in the long run well worth it. The coating will keep any corrosion from occurring under the paint.
I did the usual tricks, removed choke plates, plumbed for dual fuel supply and drilled the returns out. I also removed all the paint from the stainless and brass parts and polished them up.
I installed all new Mikuni internal parts, upgraded the N&S and re-jetted.
Here is the results.

I think I am sticking with the R&D F/A I got it from Njjer I think can't remember exactly. It is a pain to align the F/A and get the top on though.

Looking good Bill!
Where can the Alodine be found?
Also, wasn't me with the R&D.
