I recently received my rebuilt 79 CBX carbs back from Mike and I got them back on the bike last night. I have never went through the tilting the engine process before, but all told the job took about 5 1/2 hours total including some servicing and cleanup time when everything is exposed. The bike fired immediately after filling the bowls and the only adjustment was raising the idle speed after it warmed up. The choke and overall driveability is the best since I have owned it. I took it on a 80 mile test drive and all I can say is there's no more 40 year old CBX carb problems to deal with. The time table for the build was good and Mike emailed photos of his progress and identified a small problem with one carb. This is a 10,000 mile all original CBX and now it runs as good as it looks. I have another low mileage 79 CBX and I plan to get those carbs sent off to Mike soon. I highly recommend Mike's service to other CBX owners as he made a new bike out of mine.
