99' KLX300 broken Pilot Jet. How did this happen?

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a 99 KLX300 in great condition. Started fine when i first got it but all of a sudden I could not get it to start. Pulled the carb to clean, but was spotless in there... Decided to pull the pilot jet anyways and this is what I found. How could this happen? Had to have been put in like this right? over tightened or the wrong pilot jet? Thanks in advance.

From the crumpling of the emulsion tube it looks like the jet was severely overtightened. Looks like its also missing the very tip. Its not stuck up inside the bore is it?
