no baffle plate on main jet?

Recommended Posts

Hey all.

I'm trying to figure out the carb thing. After looking at the pics in the manuals, I realize that the carb of my new/used XR400 has no baffle plate on the main jet... What would this affect?

thanks, -d

It's an anti-slosh baffle. Supposed to help maintain an even level of fuel around the main jet. Alot of people remove it because they can't seem to make it stay put. Don't remember ever seeing anyone complain of a fuel delivery problem with it out.

The baffle is to prevent fuel starvation in high G situations like landing from a jump.
