Weight gain - good carbs and bad carbs

Hi, Noddy here from www.bikeworx@icon.co.za and I just thought you guys would like to see these, which we weighed the other day?

CARBS 02The carb’s weighing in at 4.5kg are from a 1978 Honda CB550, which are quite heavy to say the least. The carb’s weighing in at 2.9kg are from a mid 1990s Honda NC23.

Quite amazing how 1.6kg have been shaved off, and that’s including the bell-mouths. Just though it’d be interesting to show how the constant quest for saving weight happens with every part of the motorcycle.


Thanks for that and if any of you have similar things to show us please mail Bill, at the email address at the top of the page...
