Vapour Honing, Vapour Blasting,
Before and After Mikuni Carbs
This is a set of Mikuni Carbs from a snowmobile that had been replaced and sat in a box for several years. The Vapour Hone restores the look of the original factory finish without altering any of the edges, markings or stampings.
Here's the result of neglect, this is a mikuni VM or round slide carb, pretty common but usefull for demonstration. Had this been an unobtanium vintage carb, Vapour Honing restores it to useable condition. Left unchecked the corrosion would eat through the bowl in time. we've magnified the pitting to allow better viewing on the web but in the extreme, we could line the bowl to return it to perfectly useable condition.

Before and After Kawasaki H1R Cylinder
Here's a cylinder and head from a Kawasaki H1R, thats the race version of the H1 hence the 4 stud exhaust flange where the street bike had a 2 stud flange. I was curious to see how well the hone would remove the years of corrosion, as you can see it does a wonderful job of restoring the original surfaces both aluminium and the cast steel flange.
