Thanks to Pistol Petes

Post #1 by Mikeg » Mon Jun 26, 2017 9:43 am

Last fall I sent the carbs and manifolds off my 78 GL1000 to Pete for a rebuild. The bike had sat for 10 years and it looks like to PO had been into the carbs before I got it. I can "field strip" and clean an Amal off one of my Brit bikes on the roadside with no trouble and have it running in short order, but the thought of going into one these (let alone 4) and getting positive results seemed more than I wanted to chance. I got them back from Pete in less than 2 weeks. Bolted everything back on and after allowing for the float chambers to fill the bike started right up and idled perfectly. Throttle response is seamless and quick. Thanks for a job well done Pete!

I had my carbs done by him too, perfect! No problems at all. I heard he had stopped doing carb work, hope he changes his mind.

three or four years ago PP did my carbs. I was out riding today and they are still performing magic!
Glad to know he's back at it!
