Don't feel bad - I cleaned my wifes CBR400rr fuel tank, replaced the filters & then had to remove & strip the carbs 3 times - due to crap in the lines...
It just happens & you get better at doing it each time - lol

Glad to hear its fixed.
It's definitely worth putting a metal cleanable inline fuel filter, as the fuel socks on the tap still let enough crap through to block pilot jets etc. Pulling the carbs off all the time sucks b***s :down:

Good call on the filter. Willl order.

Bike running beautifully after all my labours! Runs cleanly and pulls well.

Lovely engines on these GSXR400 - creamy smooth low down.

Now tucking into the other 400 we own (a 1992 model). Has developed a low range misfire - suspect coil - plugs 1 and 4 sooty. Have just received a replacement coil so will be fitting today ....
