Carburetor Cleaning Prices and Availability

I specialize in carburetors. I do not offer oil changes and tire changes as stand-alone services.  I can do these, if the bike is already here for a carb cleaning and I notice you have gas in your oil from the gunked up carbs or failed vacuum petcock. Or if I notice your tires are weather cracked and inform you that they are unsafe to ride on. My goal is to get your bike into running and riding shape again!   

I do not have a tire machine, and do not balance tires either. For services other than carburetor work, I send people to Terry at Cycle Tek :  8461 Plaza Blvd NESpring Lake Park, MN 55432  (763) 792-2331  Make sure you tell him Bruno sent you.  I tend to tell people to bring cash as it’s easier to get in and out that way 🙂

All carburetor prices are for cleaning your carburetors as-is.  I will let you know if there are any parts that I feel should be replaced.  Or if there are parts that NEED to be replaced I will let you know.  If you know the bike hasn’t had them cleaned in a while, please purchase float bowls gaskets to speed up the return of your motorcycle 🙂

4 Cylinder motorcycle rough pricing (subject to change) –

  • $240 If the Carburetors are still on the motorcycle (flat fee for any in-line 4 Cyl Bike, includes synchronization)
  • $300 for V45/V65 Magnas and /Goldwing carburetors
  • $120 If you give me just the carburetors (applies to ANY 4 cylinder bike, including magnas and goldwings)
  • $20-$40 to synchronize carbs (by appointment only, depends on model)
  • *****Fairings and covers take time, so please remove any necessary before the bike comes in, or there could be a $40-80 charge added depending upon model

2 Cylinder motorcycle rough pricing (subject to change) –

  • $220 If the Carburetors are still on the motorcycle (Flat fee for any twin and includes synchronization)
  • $100 If you give me just the carburetors
  • $20-$40 to synchronize carbs (by appointment only, depends on model)
  • *****Fairings and covers take time, so please remove any necessary before the bike comes in, or there could be a $40-80 charge added depending upon model

Singles – Cost is $40-$60 depending upon severity of dirt/varnish in the carb if you are just bringing the carburetor in.  To remove/clean/install singles cost $120

Carburetor Synchronizing–  Carburetors can be cleaned to get your bike up and running, which is great, however you truly need to synchronize them (for multiple carb bikes) to get the machine running at it’s best for all cylinders.  The bike must be running, and warmed up to operating temperature to get a proper sync.  You cannot synchronize carburetors that are running on the “choke” either.  The bike must also be at a steady (or close to steady)  idle to correctly synchronize.  Average cost is $20-$40 for the older open bikes (70’s/80’s) and $80-$120 for sportbikes, as it’s more work to get in there and do a proper sync.

You will always be told if new parts are needed for your carburetor as some carburetors just can’t be cleaned and work properly.  Almost 99% of the time, carbs just need a good cleaning, without any parts needed.  I would stress that you get float bowl gaskets if you do not know the last time the carburetors have been worked on.  Please get these before dropping your carburetors off if you want them back quickly and without delay! Now let’s get your motorcycle back on the road!  To see current projects and my personal projects check out my facebook page:  www.facebook.com/motorbikebrunos

 

Bruno, when are you able to work on my bike?

 

Many people ask me when I’m available.  I am on a first come, first serve basis.   I like to get out and ride myself, so please email, text, or call me to schedule a time and we can figure out what works best for us both.  I do this as a hobby, with altruistic goals in mind, as a  father of 2 little ones my time is limited some weeks.  My goals are to get your motorcycle back on the road as fast as possible, and cost you as little as possible too!  I do not consider myself a mechanic, I’m more of a Carburetor Enthusiast,  and can’t stand to see a bike sit for longer than it has to.  So go find that bike in the back of your shed, dust her off and bring it here so we can bring it back to life again!
