    Hi,
    Can anyone recommend someone who can set up the carburettors on my trike? The engine is a 1979 Suzuki GS850. Not being at all mechanically minded I found someone who would look at it but unfortunately when I told them it was a trike they told me it would not fit in their work shop. The trike is on the road and is in the Melksham area but just isn't running right.

    Any recommendations or contact details would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Nick.

    Hi mate, I used Tim Blakemore to set up the carbs on my Fireblade, released another 5bhp and felt lots better. Its not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Hes recently moved towards Avonmouth area but well worth a call.

    Tim had my bike which blew up on the bridge during 'hogging'.

    Lovely bloke, highly skillful but impossible to find !
    I only have one vice…I lie.

    I use Vince Prevett (VP Motorcycles) at Old Sarum airfield, Salisbury. Don't know whether he'd handle a trike but no harm in asking. Depends whether it'd be convenient for you. Good luck.
