keihin cvk teardown photos/graphics?

Anyone know where I can find a photographed teardown sequence for the keihin cvk carbs? Or an exploded diagram? I just want to know what goes where before I start poking and prodding.

Another thing I'm interested in is the specs for how the carbs connect to the manifolds; I'm thinking mikuni flatslides might be in my future and I don't really like the idea of a "kit" without knowing what's -really- in the kit.

I just finished taking apart my carbs this past weekend and I found the most helpful photos were at this link under the "Carb Jetting" section. Pretty much a step by step guide. To see the top end photos you must click on the "Shimming" link toward the end of the jetting series of photos. You'll see what I mean.

It's for a CVK40, but still applies to ours.

I can tell you that the 42mm kit from Bonneville Performance is as complete as they come. The only thing the kit lacks is intake couplings. He will also remove things and discount them towards the kit. For example K&N cone filters, if you already have them he would remove and credit you kit price $60, or whatever. Bill Gately is ultra-pro customer too, and he really treats people the way that he would want to be treated if he was a customer.

If you have anymore questions I will be happy to answer them for you.

Question removing the bowl, with the carb in place?

Does anybody know if it is possible / advisable to remove the float bowls / carb bottoms, with the carbs on the bike?

The reason I ask is that the left side drain screw is messed up (by previous owner). I assume that it will be easier to change the drain screw with the bowl off the carb. Obviously, there would be a need for something to catch the fuel coming out (rags). I have already orderes a new drain screw, and a new seal for the bowl.

It's no problem removing the float bowls with the carbs on the bike (it makes it easier if the previous owner installed the hex screws instead of the soft stock Phillips type).
I place a rag underneath and let the fuel drip out after shutting the petcock off.
I also use Hylomar gasket material and haven't had to replace the rubber gasket yet after numerous removals.

Thanks Shorty. Yup, turning off the fuel-flow is definitely on my check-list for the job. Probably no hex screws though
