The place to buy your classic bike Brembo and Dellorto parts on line
Its always best to keep your original parts with you bike if you can.
Carburettors are intricate pieces of equipment that need to be right. Its easy to spend a small fortune on an engine and not even think about the carbs. I keep comprehensive stocks of parts for PHF/PHM/VHB and others so you can rebuild your carbs yourself however if you don’t fancy tackling the job yourself I can do it for you. Its always best to go for new carbs if you can but a lot of the classic PHF/VHB and singles carbs are no longer available so rebuild is you only option.
Did you know most common brands of UK fuel like Tesco momentum and Shell V power contain ethanol, between 5% - 10%.
Ethanol fuel has a shelf life of approximately 90 days/ 3 months so if you are one of those who takes his classic bike off the road for the winter remember to drain your tank/carbs or use a fuel stabiliser at your own discretion.
Carbs left with fuel in will gum up.
Carbs with fuel left in them for the winter will gum up as the good stuff evaporates off leaving a tar like substance to block up all you drillings.
Ethanol fuels will take on moisture over a few months, this can cause corrosion in/from the tank and deteriorating fuel lines to foul your carbs even if they were drained.
