Ok I have a 1977 that has been sitting since 1979 I'm rebuilding the carbs one was really bad. I got the primary main fuel jet out to replace, now how does the main nozzle come out it looks from the bottom it screws out. Has anyone ever removed one.


Thank in advance

Both the primary and seconday Main jets are press in. They are only held in place by the fit of the O Rings and that retainer that rests against the bottom of the float bowl. Once the Jets are out then after you remove the CV tops and slides you can reach in from the top and using something soft (pencil or wooden dowel) you should be able to push the emulsion tubes/ nozzlesout.

You found a bike that has been stored since 1979?

Holy cow... how are the trim pieces, I hope it was inside a shed or something all that time.

Yes it was in a gargage sense 1979, which was the last time it had license tabs.

That's why it only has 7,208 miles. The seat was in bad shape and I had to replace it.

and fenders were pitted.



Only real problem was ithad 30 year old gas in it. The gas tank had about a half inch of dried up gas, the carbs had a thick coat of purple goo in them.
