I Need a Keihin Carb Slow Jet

Postby rkmason » Wed Feb 17, 2016 7:24 pm



I'm in desperate need of a non-removable slow jet for a Keihin carb. I had one jet taken out for cleaning and managed to lose it in my garage :x :oops: . A damaged, unusable carb body with the slow jet in place would also work; I can remove the jet. Thx

Also, has anyone successfully adapted the screw-in type slow jets for use in a non-removable jet type carb body? Thought I had previously seen some info about doing this, but not sure where I saw it.

Thanks for the info, 4wred! I did not think the pressed-in slow jets were available as replacement parts. It is the "3L" type slow jet I want, right? Do you also happen to know which is the OEM standard jet size?

I brought the following jets for my gl1100 press in jets. And I had no problem with them.

I think the oem stock main jet is 145.
Not sure about the slow jet,if you do a search it should pop up!

Thx. The slow jets on Ebay that Auctioneeral mentioned are size #35 but they are referenced as being for CBX carbs, not GL1100. It does make sense that the size would be similar....

Found out the OEM std slow jet size is #35, and the main is #145. I'm going with #38 slow jets and #148 main jets to richen the mixture very slightly; my spark plug color indicate it's running very lean.
