    Well I did a real smart thing took my carburetors apart for a clean from being gummed up up from sitting w fuel firt six months.
    All would have been good had I decided to put them back together in a prudent fashion.
    :stupid:
    However they have been sitting over a year now...
    All parts were cleaned a/ organized & ready for reassembly.
    I frankly just don't remember; there's close to 100 parts for these carbs
    With No reference in front of me that I can hold...and observe.. I'm at a disadvantage.
    So somebody knows anybody in the California area or that I can ship these off to and they can set them up reasonably close to what they were that would be awesome.
    The bike ran just awesome prior to the carb clean..duh
    :Pop:
    Any help or advice appreciated in advance

    Thanks

    Just pull up a micro fishe on any of the online dealer sites, I use Ronnie's or World of Powersports. The pic will always show everything in the proper order.

    Que rant: Suzuki never made an “SRAD” and I hate that term! It’s a freaking <insert year> GSXR!!!!

    you don’t hear the old farts talking about their TSCC Suzukis!

    SRAD?!?! Die, monkey nuts, die!!!

    okay, I’m better now. :D

    Where did this go to?

    A RZ350 is known a YPVS.

    A CBR900rr is a Fireblade

    A RC-51 is a RVT1000R

    And a GSXR is a SRAD

    Still need a carb guy...lol:timeforabeer:

    If you weren’t so far away, I’d be glad to put them together. Nothing to it actually, they’re just carbs. YouTube it, someone somewhere is working on a set and will refresh your memory.

    I'll put them together for you, I do carbs constantly, I'm in NY though. But once they're in a box and shipped it doesn't really matter. If you want to send them PM me.

    I have never heard of anyone calling an RZ anything other then an RZ. Especially not a YPVS. :D no!

    Fireblade? Only in the land of boiled meat, bad teeth and Sheene. :D

    not just no but hells no! I think you might get your ass kicked for that shit. :D

    and f@ck no! There has never been a Suzuki model called a SRAD and we’re not starting now. Nope, no and never! :D

    The RZ was also known as a RD350LC in some markets. (IIRC...)

    Nope,

    RD 350 LC predated the RZ 350 and lacked the power valve, among other changes

    In the states, yes.

    In europe and in other markets, it kept the RD prefix....

    No one cares about that socialist third world shithole that Europe was in the early 80s and what they called Yamahas. :D shit, we barely care what they call things now. :D

    but once again, we Germans tried helping. We tried to simplify everything for people and tried getting everyone calling Europe Germany. :D. And if it wasn’t for the meat boilers and the Americans, we’d have been successful in helping out. :D

    where were we? Ain’t such thing as an SRAD, fireblade is a stupid name that only the English use and Tom sucks. :D

    It's good old query right?

    What is important is what would Goebbels have called them?..... :D
