fuel screw on '05 sticks out more.

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else notice that the fuel screw on the '05 sticks out more than the previous years? I just installed the zip ty fuel screw and it sticks out a lot more than on my '04. I guess it doesn't matter, does it? Also, isn't there a little rubber o-ring that goes on top of the washer of the Fuel Screw. When I took it out, no rubber o-ring came out so I just installed the zip ty fuel screw without the rubber o-ring because I figure the o-ring is already lodged up in place. Anybody else have the same problem? What should I have done different?

Many times the o-ring will stay in the carb. If it was there, youre OK. I like to go ahead and get it out and the place it on the fuel screw before installation. This way I know its in place. They are so small, it would be easy to overlook them if they fell out.

Actually it's not longer. (at least compared to an '02') The difference is the bottom shrouding of the carb has been changed a little to expose the end of the fuel screw.
