    Fully stripping the carbs and will blast and paint them. I don't have all the odd parts for the Keihin throttle shafts yet, so I will put them back together with new felt seals and the old rubber ones. Will pull them apart again when I have all the parts and finish the job correctly. Removing the Keihin throttle shaft screws has to be done perfectly, zero room for error. I added some updates to my staking posts and will make a full Keihin rebuild guide when I have the parts finished.

    The Fuel Tap Saga:
    So I bought one of these https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fuel-Gas-Tank-Tap-Switch-Petcock-For-Honda-NSR250-MC21-CBR400-NC23-NC29-CBR600F/221802481518?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 $11.69 USD
    on the off chance that it would have the right thread size, it does. The outlet is too big but the Tygon fuel hose can go over okay. The reserve pipe is way too long but that can be easily cut and the outlet is on the wrong side but I don't care about that. Finally the square drive for the fuel tap handle is too big. Anyway, no more vacuum diaphragm and if I forget to turn the fuel off then it is my fault.

    Yep, every problem you solve you create some more. I will have to use a quick connect on the fuel line because the hose is so tight.
