How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

Is there a write-up anywhere on this?

I just got mine with 90 degree long intake and a 60 jet... I don't want to make any mistakes, so any advice / instruction would be GREAT! Thanks again

Check out the motobecane wiki page.

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

its right in the wiki. there's really nothing to it. if you have the shorty intake its easier. if not, you just have to tilt the carb accordingly as not to scrape the frame when it... "variates". you should have gotten a few jets. BUT, i'm running a 60 right now with a metal screen-window mesh and the results are real good. I could probably go a little leaner, but i havent tried yet. if you're all stock then that should be pretty happy for you.

How to you remove the cable coming out of the top of the Gurtner carb? I am obviously retarded..

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

which cable? The whole top plate (that the choke and throttle cables go through) comes off with just one flathead screw.

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

I can't get it to come off.. I'm about to take a picture to show you whats up..

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

How do I get these two cables off!

Got em off, but I had to pull out the entire choke cable to do so... Hope that was right! Now, how to put the cables back into the new one!

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

You might need new cables. Dellorto slide uses a small nipple on the end of the throttle cable, and either a nipple or really small pinch bolt for the choke.

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

Yep-- I just figured out I need a new throttle cable, and more than likely a new choke as well.. I'm going to make a photo write-up for the idiots like myself because there isn't a really definitive one up yet!

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

you should be able to trim the end of the cable down to fit into the dellorto slide.

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

It's actually too short... Am I doing something wrong?

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

You forgot a last, vital step.

Sell me your Gurtner black plastic airbox!

:-) Please..?

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

there is a plenty definitive one on the wiki. it says everything you need.

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

My only problem with it is the lack of step-by-step pictures. I'm more a visual kinda guy, and images of each step really help me in the process of working on the engine, etc.

No offense meant, but I'll hopefully finish up the photo write-up in the next day or so!

Re: How to replace Gurtner with Dellorto!

yea, i visual is nice. the way i think of it is...

1. Take old crusty gurtner off.

2. Put new dellorto on.
