Default Idle Mixture Needle Mod

I fitted the CCP (now John's Cycle Parts) EZ-Just idle mixture needle:

(click)

You can get them from J&P Cycles too.

This replacement needle makes it so much easier to adjust the idle mixture! I made a little modification to mine. I added a spigot to the face of the knob, to make it easier to turn. Well, to count the turns really. I screwed the needle in all the way (gently seating it), and marked the side nearest the air cleaner (right of bike). I then took the needle out again and drilled and tapped (10 BA) for the spigot I'd made:

Cool! Folkie, kind of like one of them steering wheels in a cage for a handicap person.

I just marked the knob so I'd know where it was........

Also after you're all done getting your mixture set, put a dab of RTV on the screw (partly on carb body, partly on mixture screw) so it doesn't vibrate out.

Not really necessary if you've only gone 3 - 3½ turns out. If you're at more than that, change to the next biggest slow jet.

I made my own.

This:



Plus this:



Equals this:



I bought some 3/16" brass tubing and a knurled nut from Ace hardware. If you accidently get solder in the threads, clean them up with a M6X.8 die.

Total parts cost; $1.98
EZ-just cost; $29.99
Savings; $28.01 = 7.39 gallons of gas = 370 miles of riding.

Cool mods Folkie and Tchuck. I took the easy way out and used a marker on my EZ just screw but yours sure looks cooler.
