    00' GP1200R Choke Plate Removal

    Searching online, only found the GP12 process for removing the choke plates. I am assuming they are similar on the 1200R carbs and therefore interested in finding a source for the brass choke plate rod block off plugs.

    Regards

    WFO sells the primer kit that includes the brass plugs for a good price. If you just want the plugs and no primer, Osidebill might be able to turn some for you. As far as removal goes just cut the rod with a small cut off wheel and pull it out. Don't even bother to try to remove the choke plate screws. The are pinged in and will NOT come out. Also be sure to clean ANY metal dust off the carb before you reinstall it. Also remove the accelerator pump and install the blockoff plate. Now is a very good time to do a rebuild/inspection b/c you need to rejet.

    if you dont have a small cut off wheel, i used a 1/8 drill bit and drilled through the screws, worked great..

    Now that I think of it a set of sidecuts might work as well.....

    Rather than buy plugs, just re-use the choke shafts themselves. They should fit fairly close; just cut them to length, dimple them with a punch, coat them with some LocTite or epoxy, then press them back in.

    Just fill the holes with JB weld and use the oil injection lines for your primer.

    Wow...this is such a slick way to make it happen. Thanks Bill.

    Newb question...how will I know the choke plates when I see them, I do not see them outlined in the parts breakdown of the mikuni manual. This is coming from a guy who outsourced his carb rebuild last year so go easy on me.

    Thanks again Bill!

    My last question, and I wont have a pic until Sunday (when carbs come out) is that the choke plates are the round plates on the side of the carbs closest to the hull. Also, it looks as if the metal rod is the rod that controls them in unison and the one that has to be removed...correct?
