Maintaining a clean carburettor is very important for a Kawasaki KE100. A dirty carburettor will lead to your KE100 being a lot louder than it needs to be. If there is a massive build-up of dirt then you might find that your KE100 won't start. Cleaning the carburettor is a fairly easy process, which shouldn't take you too long to complete.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Carburettor cleaning fluid
  • Toothbrush
  • Screwdriver
  • Two rags

  1. 1

    Unscrew the two screws on either side of the seat with a screwdriver and remove it from the KE100. This will give you full access to the KE100 carburettor from above and from the side.

  2. 2

    Scrub all over the KE100 carburettor with the toothbrush to remove dirt and grime. A toothbrush works well because it can fit in a lot of the small cracks of the carburettor.

  3. 3

    Unscrew the four screws holding the KE100 carburettor bowl on and place the bowl and the four screws to one side. This will give you access to the inside of the carburettor.

  4. 4

    Scrub the inside of the carburettor with the toothbrush.

  5. 5

    Pour a small amount of carburettor cleaner and scrub the KE100 carburettor bowl. This means scrubbing both the outside and inside of the KE100 carburettor. It is common for carburettor bowls to build up a lot of dirt, so it might take a bit of physical force to remove all of the dirt.

  6. 6

    Pour some carburettor cleaner on a clean rag and polish out any bits of dirt not removed from the outside of the carburettor.

  7. 7

    Re-attach the KE100 carburettor bowl and seat. You should now have a clean and fully working KE100 carburettor.

Tips and warnings

  • Wear gloves if you have sensitive skin when applying the carburettor cleaner, which can cause skin irritation.
