"Just wanted to say thanks for manufacturing the pivot post repair kit. It worked great on my cb750f carburetor. I bought the bike used and thought I would have to junk the carburetors. Your fix saved the day. Thanks. "

Float Post Repair Kit

One of the worst things that can happen during a carb rebuild is a broken float pivot post. Covered in Randakk's GL1000 Carb Rebuild DVD covers some simple precautions, but even the most careful mechanic can sometimes break one of these posts...even Randakk's!

Over the years, Randakk's has evaluated many repair techniques for this calamity...none has ever completely satisfied. Up until now, the only good advice that could be offered was to replace the entire carb body.

Bob Hagerman (supplier of Randakk's oil filter conversion kits) solving essentially the problem At the 2008 Rally, Bob and Randakk's compared notes and worked on several refinements. This kit is the result of the collaboration.

Kit is easy to use and requires minimal expertise or tools. It delivers a reliable, accurate and permanent repair! The cost is considerably less than most suppliers charge for a single, bare and inspected carb body. Plus, given the cost of labor and the value of a complete carb rack, most suppliers are getting reluctant to part with a single carb body. Thanks again to Gary Broom for sending Randakk's down this path.

Each kit will repair one broken float pivot post. Once you've purchased the kit, you can repair more carb bodies by purchasing additional replacement posts below.

Detailed Installation Instructions

Here is an excerpt:

Step 4.

"Install drill locator jig. It works for either broken post and is engineered so that it can only be installed in the "correct" orientation. The jig is attached using the original float bowl screws, with the provided flat washers under the lock washers on the screws. The purpose of the flat washers is to prevent the ends of the lock washers from getting into the slots and possibly shifting the jig out of position. When tightening the screws, be sure to push the jig so the flat side of the notch bears against the good post. This ensures proper location of the new hole."


Be sure to read GL1000 Float Setting Advice when your repair is finished. GL1000 Float setting is covered in-depth in the GL1000 Carb Rebuild video.
