Re: Carbs 101....Jetting...cleaning....everything you need to know about carbs

from new i removed carb and capped mix screw with candle wax so when needed to adjust i just dig it out and it moves freely no build up of grime this is just a preventative measure not a cure for your problem i would not know how to get it out now you have taken head off unless you could drill it using small bits working your way up but make sure all is clean before rebuild!!

You have`nt ruien it waterboy. Stop trying to dig it out you can find a tap for it but you need exsperiance on taping im not that great but for this i leave it up to a shop. Not a atv shop they charge to much or wont be able to do it instead look in yellow pages for all major citys around you look for machine shops / automotive machine shops/ automotive shops Some one should work magic and get it out without buying new carb. Let me know what happens save you some money

Re: Carbs 101....Jetting...cleaning....everything you need to know about carbs

As mentioned above. Which way on the mixture screw richens the mixture. Also which clip setting on the main jet richens the mixture? Both of these would be helpfull for tuning purposes.

To be honest, I'm trying to figure out how to get enough fuel to run with the lid off on my bike. At the moment it back fires a little bit if I take the snorkel off and horribly if I take the whole airbox lid off.

use a small pair of vysegrips on the head of the screw that should do the trick to get the other carb apart

stripped screws need a screw extractor (drill bit w/reversed threads).

You can try, most of us do then give up. Usually the screwdriver is too long to get wedged underneath the carbs.

Photobucket is trash now, use something else.
