    Really? Do you just jam some in there and slide the needle in to get the correct shape?

    If this is a viable fix I might just have to give it a go.


    On another note, does anybody have a set of NC30 carbs with little to no wear on the needle jets that they'd be interested in selling?

    Might have a crack at reshaping the needle jets if I can find a replacement set of carbs to use while I tinker. Maybe drill them out and install a nylon sleeve.

    Last attempt before I turn to eBay: Anyone have a set of half decent carbs laying around they'd like to sell?

    Found a set of loose carb bodies locally, swapped out the two problematic ones in the assembly, and now she's running beautifully.

    Hooray!

    Time to tidy up the fairings now. Any leads on where to get a rattle can of Honda Ross White paint?

    Not sure about rattle can, but a decent paint shop might be able to colour match it and give you some. You would need your own paint gun though unless you got homies with one. Either that or they might not charge too much to blast it on some prepped fairings for ya
