Tremendous, Tom!

Certain winner of Academy Award for Best CVK40 Video of 2013!

Cannes Palme d'Or for the same category!

A suggestion; no criticism intended whatsoever; might add a subscript (if not a few frames) about checking/adjusting float height while float bowl dropped.

Good idea, Damocles. I'll see if I can work that in.

I've had no reason to get into my carb aside from once cleaning a clogged pilot jet and doing the .22 Mod, but when I eventually have to go beyond that, I will certainly refer to these videos. Thanks, Tom.

Very nice!

If only there was something to clean the carb with...

Must be nice to be retired but shouldn't you be out riding instead of making videos in the garage?

Yeah, I should be, but the lure of the silver screen is so strong...

Fame. How long will it be before we see Tom headed down the same heart-breaking path travelled by Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes? Keep your shit together, Tom.

I modified video #3 to include checking the float height and video #4, adding some stuff to the end.
