throttle cable / carb help insight

so i took apart the carbs the other month

let it sit

cleaned them

now am putting htem back on

i did a prety good job labellign them I thought


I just want to double check how to confirm how the throttel cables go back on the link set, throttle part # 16032-MBN-671 (where the throttle cable ends get placed on the carb that rotates when you twist the throttle)

Also I'm missing a screw kind of necessary screw as well

does anyone have a spare or be able to tell me the size and other specs so i can pick one up at a hardware store? the screw is part # 93500-05010-0H

its the screw that holds the stay plate(part # 16038-MBN-671) on the carb that keeps the throttle cables in place.

I need this screw.. cant find it

grrrrr. I hate when i take my bike apart

anyhelp is appreciated

what bike do you have? i would try honda parts or maybe even on here somewhere, i would look it up but i need a model and year. as far as the cables do the same give a year and model and i'll be able to tell you excatly which is pull and which is push and the routing involved:thumbsup:

sorryy its a 2000 xr 650r

i know ron ayers the screw is 50 cents but about 8$ in shipping.. ughhh

It shouldn't require to much technical knowhow to hook up the cables.Study the carb and the throttle assembly. One goes on one way the other goes on the other.,and as for "push" it doesn't exist..and neither does pull pull.

take the carb into ur local Ace Hardware or simular store with a gud selection of metric fasteners and replace all of the soft oem fasteners u can find replacements for...bowl, top and it might be a gud time to remove the carb a search i or someone may have even posted the screw sizes.

      This replaces the tube that connects the two carbs on a 1987 Honda XR600R (it may fit other years). 
      Made in the USA.  Constructed of TPU  (solvent safe plastic.)  Its durable stiff abrasion resistant yet flexible enough you never have to worry about breaking it when you're taking apart your carbs.  Fits the o-ring perfectly and slips into the carb nice and tight. Matches the rear shock coil.  If you would like to buy one contact me via e-mail. They cost $40 Shipping is free (anywhere in the USA). $10 off for active duty or retired military.

      So I don't seem to find my specific issue so here I am asking. 
      I have a 1997 Xr600r. It was recently re-jetted and has ran really well ever since until more recently it has begun to have this issue.
      Everything works fine. Kicks right away, nice and easy. Runs great, sounds great, purs. But when I'm downshifting and slowing down to a stop, if I let my hand off the throttle that's when it just dies. I found that I can counter this by lightly holding the throttle as I down shift (so I'm revving quite a bit during downshift).  But it hadn't done this before. 
      The only thing I've done that I suspect may have been an issue on my part was when I pulled out the engine to change the valve cover gasket and upon doing so perhaps when connecting the carb back to it, I may have missed something or made a crack in the boot? 
      Any ideas? Thanks
