SECTION P:

THE TOOLBOX, LOWER DRAWERS:


Carb Cleaning Tools:

p1) Aftermarket CARB PASSAGES CLEANING WIRES KITS: these sets of small wire tip cleaners come in a handy aluminum flip-open case, and are essential for probing and cleaning some of the smallest internal passages within the carb bodies to push out and free up solidified fuel "gunk" and other obstructions before blasting the passages with cleaner and compressed air. The #6 and #7 size wires are the only sizes small enough to fit into the tiny jet passages and emulsion tube holes and clean them properly (without the risk of "re-sizing" the hole by mistake). NOTE: even the smallest #6 wire is too large to clean the starter jet down in the bowl! For that task, you'll need to order the correct bowl starter jet drill bits listed further below.

HCP950 Carb Passages MINI CLEANING WIRES TOOL SET, contains 13 wires (sizes #6 - 26) and a small flat file.
$ 9.95

HCP951 Carb Passages MINI-PLUS CLEANING WIRES TOOL SET. Same as the MINI set above, but contains an extra 3 (each) of the #6, #7, and #8 size wires (the smallest ones) so even if you ruin one, you'll have lots of spares (being so thin, they're very easy to break!). The miniature file---which you don't really need---is not included in this set.
$ 11.95

HCP953 Carb Passages MAN-SIZE CLEANING WIRES TOOL SET contains 22 small wire tip cleaners, sizes #6-45, in a handy aluminum flip-open case.
$ 12.95



ft2) Aftermarket twisted-stem WIRE-BRISTLE CLEANING BRUSHES. The greatest tool ever invented for cleaning bored and threaded holes, such as in carb bodies, float bowls, even master cylinder piston bores. Available in either 18-8 stainless steel or brass, these brushes not only help make the job of cleaning parts so much easier, but also insure that threaded passages are clean, clean, clean and less likely to strip or deform when fasteners are inserted once again. All brushes have a "finger-loop" in the end to make twisting action easier. Stainless brushes will last longer and can clean more aggressively, so be gentle when using them on aluminum carb bodies and bowls. Brass brushes are gentle on soft metals like carb bodies, but require more effort to produce a cleaner surface and wear out more quickly.

Please see the complete assortment of sizes for these products listed in the "General Tools - Cleaning and Polishing Tools and Supplies" section in the previous post.




cps2) Aftermarket high-quality WET-OR-DRY FINISHING SHEETS. Since these don't contain "sand", we really can't call them "sandpaper", but you get the idea. A large assortment of ultra-fine finishing paper is just the trick to polish the vacuum pistons and piston bores in your carbs, or master cylinder and brake caliper bores, ridding them of any surface oxidation and minor imperfections that will create interference or friction and prevent the pistons from moving freely---causing all sorts of high-idle (and other problems) in your carbs, or dragging brakes in your calipers. Our recommendation is to start with the 400- or 600-grit paper and move up 200 grit at a time until you get the bores micro-polished to an incredible smooth finish. One 9.5" x 11" sheet of each size will be enough to do four carbs or one pair of calipers; use two sheets of the 5-1/2" x 11" super-fine grit paper.

Of course, this premium finishing paper is just the thing you'll need for prepping any painted surface for painting, too.

Please see the complete assortment of sizes for these products listed in the "General Tools - Cleaning and Polishing Tools and Supplies" section in the previous post.




z7) Aftermarket wire BOWL STARTER JET CLEAN-OUT TOOLS. As you will quickly discover if you ever try to clean or rebuild your carbs, the tiny, non-removable starter jet that is stuck wa-a-a-y down at the bottom of a drilled passage in the carb bowl is next to impossible to clean. For one, did we mention that the jet opening is TINY? And did I also mention that it's stuck way down at the bottom of a small passageway, and basically unreachable? AND THEREFORE, NO ONE EVER REALLY EVEN ATTEMPTS TO CLEAN IT OUT? And that a clogged starter jet not only means trouble starting and idling, but that starter circuit is actually also involved in idle and off-idle performance? Well, how do you actually clean it? Even the tiniest cleaning rod in our carb passage cleaning wire sets (above) aren't small enough to fit through this starter jet (it is THE smallest jet-passage in the entire carb)...

Well, here's how you clean it: with these jet clean-out tools. Just big enough to get through the jet, but not big enough to ENLARGE the jet (that's a huge no-no), these high-speed steel STARTER JET DRILL BIT or the STARTER JET WIRE PROBE TOOL. The drill bits can be gently rotated (but never "pushed", as it will break), while the stiff pointed-tip wire probe tool can be twirled to dig through the toughest of crud. This is the only way to properly clean these starter jets.

NOTE: these are TINY drill bits, and will not chuck into a standard drill chuck. You have to use a mini pin-vise attachment or do it carefully by hand.

COMPARISON: these drill bits are a mere 1-1/2" long, and as such, will disappear below the top "plane" of the bowl as it goes down into the jet. You will have to use a pair of very slim needle-nose pliers to grip the tip of this drill bit and rotate it! The probe tools have a long piece of semi-rigid steel wire attached at the end of a hand-held "pen" stick.

The drill bits are harder to manipulate, but do a better job since they have a "cutting edge" on the tip.

The probe tools are easier to manipulate, but don't do quite as good a job since they do not have any type of "cutting edge" on the tip....but are still sharp enough to "pick" through most types of sludge and build-up in the jet.

NOTE: The 1980-81 XJ650 carb bowls should have removable bowl starter jets, which will make your life a lot easier!

P.S. how do you know when your starter jet is really, truly, zestfully clean? One of two ways:

a) shine a strong penlight or mini flashlight into the bottom of the bowl, where this jet passage "intake" is located. Look through the top of the bowl down into the jet passage "outflow" passage (this is the passage that the brass suction tube in the bottom of the carb body actually fits down into). Focus your eye carefully on the jet opening and make sure it's clean. P.S. it helps to do all this while in a darkened area.........see the picture "starter-jet.jpg" on page 2 of this forum thread topic for a great image of what you want to see!:

http://xjbikes.com/forums/index.php?threads/4050


b) put the spray tip (you may have to gently shape the end of it to a fine point, see the video below) of a can of carb or brake cleaner into the intake opening of the starter jet and let rip a spray. A STEADY, FINE, POWERFUL STREAM OF FLUID WILL COME OUT OF THE OUTFLOW PASSAGE ON THE TOP OF THE CARB BOWL IF THE JET IS PERFECTLY CLEAN AND OPEN. I mean this stream will absolutely spit out a good 5-10 feet. If the stream isn't powerful and laser-like precise coming out of the jet, then the jet isn't zestfully clean.....

By the way, when using the spray-stream method of checking the jet, don't even THINK of putting your eye or face anywhere even NEAR the jet outflow path, unless you like a painful and potentially serious trip to the emergency room.




c9) Hitachi & Mikuni carbs THREAD CHASER AND CLEAN-UP TAPS. The soft aluminum bodies of the carbs can take a severe beating over the years, especially as it concerns their threaded holes. Steel is harder than aluminum, so you know what's going to distort, deform, or strip first...the threaded bore holes. The following professional quality tool-steel metric cutting taps will allow you to either "clean-up" or re-thread distorted or stripped threads in all metals, soft (aluminum) to hard (steel). THE TINY THREADS OF THE IDLE MIXTURE SCREW PORT IS ESPECIALLY PRONE TO DAMAGE AND SHOULD BE "CLEANED" UP WITH A PASS OF A THREADING TAP.


HCP2398 THREAD CHASER AND CLEAN-UP TAP, made from a high-speed uncoated steel. For use on all Mikuni idle mixture screw ports, and all Hitachi idle mixture screw ports with models using ultra-fine threaded idle mixture screws. NOTE: these threaded holes almost always need cleaning or re-tapping. Be careful when using these taps to make sure that you are cleaning and/or re-cutting the original threads, rather than any crossed/stripped threads that may be present. And beware the tiny needle tip hole at the bottom of the screw. Finally, note that the flat o-ring land (at the bottom of the screw hole) must not be damaged or gouged.......make sure that you do not run the tap in deep enough to damage that smooth land.
$ 19.95


HCP6335 THREAD CHASER AND CLEAN-UP TAP, made from a high-speed uncoated steel. For use on all Hitachi idle mixture screw ports, for models using coarse threaded idle mixture screws, and on all Mikuni carb bowl fuel drain screw ports.

Carb Refinishing Tools:

Well, since you're going to spend the time and a lot of effort to make your carbs perform properly, why not also take them to "the final frontier"? Yes, performance is more important than appearance, but achieving a polished, "like-new" finish on your carb bodies is mostly just a labor of love, and time......rather than money.

Our special miniature POLISHING BRUSHES allow you to bring back the brilliant luster to the aluminum alloy carb bodies and bowls that makes them look showroom-fresh. Fitting into a standard high-speed dremel tool, these stiff bristle wire brushes not only remove the corrosion, discoloration, and oxidation that is typical of 30-year old carbs, but also leaves a smooth, sealed luster beauty that gives a truly professional touch to you restoration efforts.

These brushes can be used "as is", or, when combined with our coarse or fine-grit POLISHING POWDERS, makes the job that much easier and quicker. NOTE: in any case, plan on spending about 1-hour per carb to achieve a fully polished appearance.....it's tedious, but enjoyable, as you can easily see the progress as you go. ALSO.......perform the polishing procedure only after you have cleaned the carbs internally (via carb dip or other procedures), as many chemicals will react and dis-color the carb bodies!

As a final measure, we recommend spraying your newly polished bodies with our BULLETPROOF HIGH-GLOSS, 2-STAGE, FAST-DRYING CLEAR-COAT.....it's fuel resistant and non-yellowing, and will allow your labors of love to retain their beauty for many years to come.


HCP16662 Aftermarket miniature POLISHING BRUSH, 1/8" shank stainless steel bristle wire high-speed brush quickly removes corrosion and surface imperfections without displacing metal. Depending on how badly the carbs are tarnished, figure on using 2 brushes per carb body. NOTE: always wear eye protection when using these brushes, as they will tend to "shed" bristle fragments as they are used. Each:
$ 4.95

HCP16662SET8 Aftermarket miniature POLISHING BRUSHES, set of 8:
$ 32.95



HCP11198 Aftermarket BULLETPROOF HIGH-GLOSS, 2-STAGE, FAST-DRYING CLEAR-COAT WITH HARDENER. Requires 2-hours drying time to handle, and requiring just 18-24 days to fully cure. Once fully cured this clear-coat is chemical, oil, and fuel resistant, making it ideal for use on gas tanks, carbs, etc. NOTE: this clear coat is not rated for high-heat applications on engines, brake calipers, or brake rotors. 12-ounce spray can. 1 can will do a full set of carbs.
$ 24.95

General Electrical System Tools:

et1) Aftermarket electrical test MULTIMETERS, the most useful tool you'll ever own for working on electrical systems. These professional-grade test instruments make your life easier, and give you the accurate measurements needed to diagnose and track down electrical system issues.

Here are some good reviews that shows you how to use one to do various electrical system tests and troubleshooting:

spt22) Spark plug drain well BRUSH and BLOCK-OFF PLUGS allow you to clean out the water-drain wells in the cylinder heads on all XJ700-X and XJ750-X (water-cooled) engines. These drain passages are only accessible by removing the cylinder head decorative, ribbed side covers (which will expose the small, center well drain-hole on the side of the head). This passage hole is used to drain water and associated grit and gunk from the spark plug wells on each side of the head (i.e. the left side hole drains plugs #1 and #2; the right side hole drains wells on the #3 and #4 plugs). Clogged drain ports allow water and other junk to build up in the plug wells, with predictable results. Our extra-long WIRE-BRISTLE BRUSH is the correct size and depth to purge these passages, while the BLOCK-OFF PLUGS replace the spark plugs while the cleaning procedure is being performed (the spark plugs must be removed to allow the brush clearance to pass all the way thru the passage).

The procedure to clean these wells ---- which, by the way, is not mentioned at all in the service manual ---- is as follows:

1) remove the decorative head side cover.
2) remove the spark plug cap/boot…….leave the spark plugs in for now.
3) using compressed air, blow out any debris in the wells.
4) remove the two spark plugs on that “side” of the head you are working on.
5) install the low-profile block-off plugs into the two spark plug holes.
6) use the wire-bristle brush to clean out the drain passage completely. Any debris will be “pushed” into the plug wells (that’s why you need to install the block-off plugs!).
7) using compressed air, blow out any debris in the wells.
8) remove the low-profile block-off plugs, and re-install the spark plugs, plug cap/boot, and decorative side cover.
9) repeat steps 1-8 for the other side.
10) this procedure should be done once every few years or so.


HCP21394 Aftermarket STAINLESS STEEL WIRE-BRISTLE CLEANING BRUSH, perfect size for cleaning out the spark plug well drain passage in the cylinder head of all the built-up gunk and debris. For use on all XJ700-X and XJ750-X engines..

Neutral Switch Tools:

NOTE: THE FOLLOWING TOOLS ARE AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL!!: since this tool is a one-time or infrequent use tool, it may be more economical for you to rent it from us, rather than to purchase it outright. Please see the “rental” section within the THE TOOLBOX section of our catalog at:

http://xjbikes.com/forums/index.php?threads/xj-parts-catalog-section-p-the-toolbox.44630

and review the availability and procedures in the TOOL RENTAL section.

HCP15718 Aftermarket neutral position switch REMOVAL SOCKET. On many models, it's almost a physical impossibility to remove the HCP443 (or the aftermarket version, HCP15671) neutral switch from the crankcase "well" without removing the exhaust system or removing the engine from the frame.....the left lower frame tube conspires with the exhaust system to make it unbelievably difficult to access the switch. This special "open side" socket is the proper size to squirm through those restricted spaces and make it possible to remove and re-install the position switch without going through a tremendous amount of effort. Standard 1/4" drive socket should be used with a 3" extension bar, or, it's even easier to use when attached to the HCP13516 flexible shaft driver listed below. NOTE: this tool will not help you on XJ650 Maxim models with the stock exhaust system, as the crossover pipe is in the way and prevents access of even this tool.
$ 21.95

HCP13516 Aftermarket flexible "spring shaft" 1/4" SOCKET DRIVER TOOL, just the thing to use with the HCP15718 socket above to reach the neutral switch. Large plastic handle with 6" long flexible shaft.

NOTE: this socket can be used with a 3/8" drive impact driver (such as our HCP9706 impact wrench set) but it is not rated for impact wrench use. However, since you will most likely only be using the bit one time (to loosen the 3 bearing housing screws), then you should be able to accomplish the task, and purchase a replacement bit if necessary.

WIRE ASSEMBLY and SOLDERING TOOLS:

Wire Cutter, Stripper, and Terminal Crimper Tools:

These professional-grade tools put the discount chain-store variety to shame. If you want strong and secure connections when you're done, don't try to save a few dollars on inferior quality tools. There's absolutely nothing more frustrating than have a wire stripper that pulls the wire strands out (along with the insulation) because it's pivot point won't hold a setting, or because the round holes were not cut to the proper depths. And terminal crimper tools that have an incorrect or poor tolerance profile just won't ever crimp tightly enough, and then the wire will pull out of the terminal crimp----no matter how hard you squeeze!

Proper wire terminal installation techniques can be reviewed at:

Wire Solder and Soldering Guns:

While there is a unbelievably confusing array of solder choices, we've narrowed your choices down to one brand and type that we feel is the best: 3.5% SILVER BEARING, LEAD-FREE, ROSIN-CORE SOLDER. Let's go over those features one at a time:

a) Silver is the best material to use for small-wire electrical soldering, due to both the high-strength of silver and the exceptional electrical conductivity of silver (as opposed to lead solder).

b) Lead is a poisonous substance, and the soldering process has the potential to release lead fumes into the air....and into your eyes and lungs.....and that's just not a good thing, at all.

c) In the old days, solder was "pure" solder (be it lead-based, silver, etc.) and the cleaning flux was a separate material that had to be applied by hand. Modern "solder" is available with a central, internal flux core so that the cleaning and de-oxidizing properties of the flux----which has a lower melting point than the solder itself----is released and performs the cleaning task on the wires and terminals immediately before the solder itself melts and flows. The miracles of modern technology at its best..........

NOTE: never use acid-core solder or an acid-based flux when performing electrical wire soldering!


Of course, you'll want to apply such solder with a professional-quality SOLDER GUN, and since you probably, just like the rest of us, only have two hands, then you'll quickly come to appreciate our super-handy WIRE HOLDER tool that allows you to clamp the wires properly in place before soldering, leaving your hands free for the solder feed and the handling of the gun.



HCP13067 Aftermarket standard-duty SOLDERING GUN SET, 120-volt, dual 100-Watt and 140-Watts power settings, tip temperatures of 900-F and 1020-F.

Wire Harness Tape:

Factory wire harness bundles were taped with a black electrically-insulating protective VINYL ELECTRICAL TAPE WRAP to provide both an orderly routing of the main harness wires and for additional wire protection. We have the correct 19mm wide black, high-voltage, adhesive-backed, all-weather stretch tape to allow you to repair or re-tape your harness. NOTE: XJ750 Maxim models that used this hard-shell, plastic ribbed tubing to protect the wire bundles had the hard-shell tubing externally wrapped with this tape.

HCP12923 Aftermarket harness bundle VINYL ELECTRICAL TAPE WRAP, black, 20-foot roll.
$ 4.95

HCP13134 Aftermarket harness bundle VINYL ELECTRICAL TAPE WRAP, black, 66-foot roll, almost enough to do one complete harness.
$ 10.95



Additionally, most harnesses had a few short turns of COLORED VINYL ELECTRICAL TAPE WRAP to provide visual identification of "what connector goes where?" during harness assembly and installation. Always located just by the connector shell, about 3-4 turns of this tape was used to both tape off any vinyl sleeve and to properly identify what the connector plugged into. Used primarily at the TCI connector (from the pick-up coils) and at the various small "cube" style relays (headlight relays, sidestand safety switch relays, etc.). Since all of these harness connector shells are the same style and type (4-position, horizontally oriented 2-over-2), this small tape wrap served as a way of indicating which of these many identical connectors went to which component.

HCP13130 Aftermarket harness bundle YELLOW VINYL ELECTRICAL TAPE WRAP, 20-foot roll. Used by the pick-up coil harness connector (at the TCI) on XJ700-X and XJ750-X models, and at the headlight relay connector on all XJ550 models, all XJ650 (except Turbo) models, and all XJ750 Seca models.
