What does the slow--jet rubber plug?
« on: December 30, 2016, 03:52:39 am »
Hi,
I just replaced the slow- and main jet as per recommendations on this site.
Noticed there is a rubber plug  closing the slow jet orifice towards the float.
After poking it out in order to change the slow jet, the rubber plug does not stay in place properly anymore.
Now I am wondering what is it for? Suppose that running the bike without this plug would result in rich running?
 
Any idea?
Thanks
Jeff

Don't recall any type of rubber plug when I swapped my jets.

Is there any mention of it in your service manual?
