99 kx500 needle jet

Recommended Posts

Ok, before everyone jumps all over me, I've tried to search but I'm on my phon and am having troubles. I have a friend I'm trying to help jet his terribly running 500. I've got his mainjet down to a respectable number, but am having troubles with the needle. We're dealing over the phone and he can't seem to find the needle jet. He sent me a pic of the carb and I'm used to the newer style with the 2 screws and the cap on the top. But, it has the black screw cap on the top.... Can anyone help us out, I'd really appreciate it!

I'm guessing you'll need more info than that.

When you remove the cap, the cable, spring, slide and needle will come out as a unit. The cable end slides out of a notch in the top of the slide, then you can remove the needle retainer with (I think) a 6mm socket, might be 8mm, I forget.

When you put it all back together, make sure the little nub on the plastic ring on the end of the spring goes into the notch retaining the end of the cable.
