Needle at angle... just wanted to make sure

Recommended Posts

This may not be a problem but I just wanted to make sure.

When I jumped a clip and reassembled the washers/needle/spring/cap assembly into the slide I noticed the needle was cocked to one side. (06SM, Mikuni carb)

The needle still lined up in the hole when it was put back into the carb but the spring (the one that presses on the needle, not the big one that pushes on the slide) was making the needle cock to one side.

Thanks in advance.

This question should be part of FAQ. It is designed like that so the needle does not rattle in the jet. Only Mikuni thinks this is important.
