Hi everyone.

Just got my first GSXR 400 1995 as a non runner with suspected carb issues and wonder if you might know them man’ or person to go to for parts e.g standard jets and other things please? 🙏

There is a carb rebuild guide on here if you look in the document resources.

Steal yourself - GSXR400 carbs are notoriously tricky. Never overlook the diaphragms too - have lived that misery.

My advice is strip them down, clean the thoroughly, fit a Litetek seal kit, check the diaphragms for holes and start from there.

I have done this three times now and got one of three running beautifully!

Your man for info is 'variablevalvessuck' - he's the guru in these parts..

But as was said abov - get onto Blair at Litetek for a rebuild kit - who is also a member on here.

Enjoy the fettling..
