Carb Jet Holder Trick?

Post by eluwak »



Maybe I'm being paranoid, but is there a trick to getting the jet holder off in the carb?


I'm about down to prying it out, but I don't want to damage anything...

Wiggle, pull, repeat. There is a 0-ring holding it snug.

Douse it with a little silicone spray and then pry evenly taking care not to dent bowl gasket surfaces, using a paint stir stick or similar will protect. A word of advice is to replace those 30yr old O-rings and float bowl seals.

I'll give that a shot!

I've been beginning to wonder if these were the original carbs for this bike because on the diagrams the jet holder is completely different. Either way, I have the kit from Randakk's with most of the rubber.
