it's actually miss-spelt the American way "colortune" if you search on evil bay you should find new and used ones. They are made by Gunson's if that helps.  For reference:  Gunson G4074 Colortune Single Plug Kit 14mm

I actually bought 1 per month for 6 months - cost an absolute fortune but does make life a little easier - but you only need one!

Hi  dcarver220b ,

That's an interesting question. I know it's been awhile, but I'm not sure how long.  So I researched entries from kz1300.com and found entries about having the carbs rebuilt almost 3 years ago!. While I was looking I found that I was having issues with cylinders 1&2 indicating a carb problem. It turns out that the float was stuck on the left carb, and that I requested a new float from Jack at oldschoolcarbs.com. This was after the rebuild. 

I happened to dig around in my 'parts bin' and found that I have a brand new float valve in it's original package from Jack. So now I'm wondering if I actually ever replaced the float, or if he sent me two of them?  Damn, old age sucks.. I got KRS real bad.    I'm 'guessing' that the float was working back then, and so I didn't bother to replace it.  Crap! I wonder if that's been my problem all along!! 

Ugg.

FYI, I can't seem to find any of the Gunson G4074 anywhere it the U.S.?  The only one I've found it the Gunson Colortune for 12MM + the 14MM attachment for $99.95 US on Amazon and Ebay. Seems kind of pricey.

Any thoughts on using this with the adapter?
