Hi,i've got a problem with my 99 kx500.It wont idle,smokes and needs about 11liters of gas,even at very low rpm.The jetting is a bit lean(45 pilot en 165 main)and i put a new needle jet in it.I think that the little copper tube,where the needle comes in,is worn(oval shaped).Anyone have a number of this part(and a correct name)

Thanks,

If raw fuel leaks out the carb overflow tube you have a bad needle and seat assembly, or your float height is set too high. You could also simply need a new top end. Worn piston rings will cause a bike to smoke.
