How To: cb550 Carb Cleaning
Mick’s cb550 was starting to lose a little power so it was time for a good carb cleaning. Took us about 3.5 hours which is a little long, mainly because 4cyl Hondas have the worst air-box set-up ever. Can’t wait to get pod filter on that thing. Fuck that air box.
Get a good manual.
Take the bowls off, take all the jets out, and go ape-shit with a bottle of carb cleaner.
Get Justin to help get the airbox back on during re-assembly.

I’ve been using pure “Pinesol” household cleaner for carbs. Just dismantle, and soak the whole carb, then give a quick spray with carb cleaner. Works good.
