A guy at work approached me about working on his Triumph... sounds like a stuck float on the carbs.

Not sure of the year or model.

It does have twin carburetors.

Before I accept his challenge, it's been a LONG time since I messed with carbs at all, and never on a Triumph...

How hard are they to work on? Difficulty of rebuilding, difficulty of synching?

I'm a Harley guy, plenty of tools and common sense...


TIA!

I've worked on quite a few different carburetors here and there. As long as you follow good practices and have a solid understanding of how carburetors work you'll be fine.

I almost always have to look up specifics for different bikes though, such as float height, screw adjustments, and specific instructions for synching them. That's no big deal as long as you can find the information you need in a reasonable amount of time.

I worked on some of the 70s carbs - pretty straightforward. Easy to work on I remember.

The tickle feature was the weirdest thing - a button you push down to purposely flood the carb so it starts easier.

This is a 2006 Bonneville T100, 790cc twin.

Seems straight forward, I'm going to get him to spring for the service manual if he wants me to do the work....
