    Default VM carb adjustment tool

    I have a '78 GS750E and also a '72 Honda CB500K1. As part of the spares box that I received with the Honda, is a Honda carb adjustment tool, part nbr 07908-4600200. It works perfectly well on my VM26SS carbs, and should do so for many more Mikuni VM carbs.

    Not needed on VM carbs. Set pilots and forget about them. All you need is a screwdriver for the air screws

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.
