Last fall before I started working at Port of Call Marina, I bought myslef an old motocross bike to fix up over the winter. It is a 1984 Suzuki RM250 and not suprisingly, the carburetor was badly plugged. One day I spent an hour scraping and cleaning but it was going to take a lot more than what I had available to me.
A few days later I happened to bump into Mark Baskin at the feed store. I worked for him in the late 1980s as a Marine Mechanic and I was telling him about my new-old bike and how plugged up the carburetor was. I asked him if I could come down to the marina some time and use his parts cleaner and he mentioned his current mechanic has a sonic parts washer.
A couple days later Mark called me and mentioned George had brought in his sonic parts cleaner and I should bring over my RM carburetor and take advantage.
Some before shots would have been nice to have, but maybe next time. I was really happy to get this problem resolved so soon, I am confident that I won't have any carburetor issues next spring. I am also pretty sure this bike will run strong.
