Format:Hardcover
Picture this: Spend a three day weekend stripping, cleaning, polishing and replacing hard to find parts on a 1979 motorcycle, it's finally back together!! Some fresh clean fuel, choke & ignition on, and ... it doesn't start.
This book is a must have for motorcycle enthusiasts who are budding mechanics and need to refer to anything related to the fuel systems, which invariably cause the most frustrating and hard to diagnose faults!!
If like me you need to know a little more about motorcycle fuel systems (tuning, repair or maintenance) then this is the book for you, it explains so many intricate details about the entire fuel combustion process, specifically for motorcycle carbs/fuel injection. It's very recent (Y2K), unlike some other Motorcycle Carb Manuals.
Technical data and details are presented clearly, there's lots of diagrams and tips for anything from the oldest, most basic carbs to complex electronic fuel injected systems.

4.0 out of 5 stars All I Ever Needed to Know About Fuel Systems July 22 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book was very helpful in explaining everything I needed to know about how carburetors and fuel injection systems work. I'm not a mechanic; I just like to understand mechanical systems. Fairly well written, although a bit stiff; some of the descriptions are hard to follow (how the fuel tracks through the various parts of the carburetor) and the photos and drawings didn't help much to understand what happens inside these mysterious devices.
Also, it's really too bad the book wasn't printed on some higher-quality paper. The telephone-book-type paper it was printed on resulted in very poor quality photos, graphs and drawings.
I also could have done without the detailed description of various brands of carburetors. But, all things considered, a nice job and I don't regret my purchase.

Format:Hardcover
A concise breakdown of the theory and construction of motorcycle fuel systems.I must say that I gained an awful lot of practical knowledge,and educated more than one motorcycle "know-it-all".Highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book takes mystery out pf carbs April 17 2013
By adidasguy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Well, it explains carbs really well. as to whether it takes out the mystery, I think they are still a little magical. Most people talk about cleaning the main jets or changing them. This book explains how important all those tiny air passages are. Those passages are probably ignored by most people and never properly cleaned - which would explain why they never get their bikes running properly. This is a very informative book. I am very glad I bought it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Techbook it is! Jan. 24 2013
By Lawrence Witter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Starts with carb basics and ends with EFI systems. A little too deep, no make that a lot too deep, for the casual reader but it does cover all you ever wanted to know on the topic. Even so, I got a better understanding about how fuel systems work and why they got more complicated over time. Now if I can just put that new knowledge to work...
