XR4 carb is leaking gas also missing the plastic funnel

Recommended Posts

So I took my XR4 carb apart for the first time a few weeks ago just to see if I could do it and get the bike to start after putting it back together (don't laugh, baby steps.....). I bought the bike in December.

Anyway it didn't hit me until today when trying to start it I noticed that it was leaking gas out the carb drain tube pretty bad but now I remember that when I took the carb apart that there was no plastic funnel thing that goes over the main jet. I don't know what the funnel is called but it's missing and I want to order a replacement.

Anyone know what the part is called (or have a part #)?

The bike starts and runs without it but starting is difficult.

I realize you purchased a new carb.  However, here is the answer to your question.  The missing part is "HOLDER, JET
16168-382-014".  It keeps fuel within reach of the main jet when the going gets rough.  I would have also checked the float level to fix the fuel running out.
