    Thanks Mr. Grey. The tubes have N8 638 stamped on them so I'm assuming they are the original.
    I think I can see some lines (grooves) running up and down the inside of a couple of the tubes (or maybe I'm imagining it)..

    Good photos of the emulsion tubes. I can only see a small mark on one of them so they should be okay. If they were worn then you would expect corresponding wear on the needles unless they were recently replaced. If you do decide to replace them then please send the old ones to me (I will resleeve them) if you do not want them. I will pay for your post.
    Cheers

    Have you checked that there's not a 97.5 main jet in carb 4 ?
    And i wonder why they have the needle clip on the richest position ?
    Are the mixture screw's 3 turn's out
    And have you checked the fuel level's ?

    The needle and emulsion tube picture back a page, are they not in the carby ?
    The needle's are the correct needle's for the 3LN3 / 3LN5 carby's, 2x 5CT7's and 2x 5CT9's, they look to be in very good condition too ?


    If you have Y471 and Y472's in the carby's now can you take a picture side by side comparing them to the 5CT7's and 5CT9's

    Did you find out what brand the carby kit's are ?

    Thanks my67xr. Yeah the main jets in it at the moment are #100 / #97.5 / #100 / #100.
    Mixture screws are three turns out..
    The needles and tubes pictured were the original parts that were taken out of the carbies when it was rebuilt. They look pretty good now, so I'm going to put them back in and see how I get on.
    I will also take some comparison snapshots of the needles side by side before I do that.
    I'm thinking that the tubes and needles (Y471 / Y472) are close to the stock items, but not close enough to run with the standard clip settings on the needles (hence having to have them on the lowest clip position).
    Yet to confirm the make of the carby rebuild kit, but I've been assured it's not Keyster.
    Once I get the main jets / tubes / needles back to stock, I'll check the fuel levels.
    Thanks again!

    Stock setup is always the way to start then troubleshoot from there

    Are the intake manifolds and airbox rubbers in good shape? ... the diaphragms in the carbys ok?

    Make sure this oring is in place as its easy to miss it or have it drop out

    And has the pilot merge chamber bung been removed and cleaned out and new oring?

    New batwing fairings and front cowling arrived today! $400 from ebay.
    These, combined with the new windscreen and some Marlboro livery should look great! IMG_6708.JPG

    New windscreen from Eagle Screens, and new fairings from mayfly-motocycle on ebay.
    The parts fitted onto the bike nicely with a bit of a tweak to get the screen to match up with the fairing and the mirrors.
    Only the front guard to sand and paint now..

    Nice, did the screen come with that rubber?

    No - the rubber came from Bunnings. 5M length.. They have a few different types. Some round edge, some square edge.. The round edge looks heaps better.

    That's a good look. I'll have to try and find some finer rubber to run around the screen edge now!
