USA Version carb top

Recommended Posts

I recently removed the PAIR value and decided to order a carb top from the thumpertalk store. I was under the impression that the USA version didnt have the nipple that needs to be blocked?

yet the one that has turned up has it. balls...

Do they have two different models?

thanks

US versions do not have the nipple on the carb top for the solenoid valve. Just a blank top cover. How about some pictures of your original cover and the one you got as a replacement.

just block it off, rather than but a new carb top

I blocked mine by tapping an M6 thread in the hole and sealing it with a short bolt with a washer under the head and the threads smeared in RTV gasket

Well turns out i found out why everyone says run a thread tap first!!!

I went and dipped my m6 bolt in rtv and screwed it in.

Well at least i have a spare top!
