Whoops

Recommended Posts

I was working on installing new needle for JD jet kit today. While trying to get a bit more rotation on the carb i broke a little plastic tee on the top of carb (left side). I think its some sort of vent? Not sure if the brass part is threaded into carb or not? At any rate it will have to be replaced. Wonder where i'd get this little item?

Any ideas?

Thanks joe

Sudco may have the brass vent tube,

plastic T fitting should appear in the OEM parts microfiche.

If not, auto parts store often have generic vacuum line T or L plastic elbows  (emissions, windshield washer related stuff)

Oddly enough both of the hoses off the t go to the same place. Down below the bike.

Sounds line someone re-routed things improperly.

 

Honda seems more into this principal than other manufacturers and moreso on an off-road bike like the X

but commonly when a vent line splits into two with a T fitting,

one line is routed to the top and the other to the bottom of the chassis.

 

Allows excess liquid (gas/oil) to leak out yet maintains an upper vent in case the the bottom line gets plugged up with mud,

also prevents water from getting sucked in when fording.

 

By memory there are a least three 'T' fitting in the CRF250X engine vent routing,

a least one for the carburetor, one for the gearbox and, one for the crankcase breather, 

the latter one's bottom hose blocked by a plastic plug.

Oh ok now i understand.  They both ended up down below. The one I broke went up over the carb and then down to the cluster at the bottom. A redundancy type of design.
