FCR-MX Install

Recommended Posts

I'm one of the lucky 11 who received an FCR-MX, and have a couple of questions about the install:

1) Does the new needle go into the carb underneath the top cover? It looks like there is a threaded hex head "sleeve" under the top cover, that holds the needle in place. But.... when I tried to back that sleeve out, it was VERY tight. I didn't want to force it, and want to make sure I'm going about this correctly.

2) should you use blue loctite on the allen head screws that hold the top cover, and float bowl on? Or just tighten them down good?

Thanks!
