adjusting cable (screw) from gas DOOR to carb for fine adjus

Postby Donnie S » Mon Mar 15, 2010 10:48 pm



:( Can anybody tell me where I can get a replacement for my 1988 wing I have miss placed or my 9 year old helper has misplaced this ! I has a knob by the opening for gas tank it is about 8 or 9 inches long with a spring and flat washer on the end that screw into the idle adjustment on the carb . Now has anyone else missed placed this part(spring and washer) :?: ? Could I use a spring from a ballpiont pen and find a regular flat washer ? This may sound dumb but Honda dealer wants $45.00+ for one where I think if this could work cost about $1.49 :?: :oops:

Wow, for $45, I'd certainly give a homemade version a try first...
