    Buyer beware Moose racing carb rebuild kit contained faulty jets

    Like the title says i bought a rebuild kit for my carb from moose racing and the kit contained faulty jets. Both the pilot and main. I know because changing them out back to my old jets remedied the problems I was having. The bike didn't want to take any gas off throttle and busted up under hard acceleration. Took me awhile to figure out it was the jets I've heard about this from cheap Chinese made kits off eBay but I figured a 45$ kit from a reputable manufacturer would have been sound. Not saying every kit has this problem but I'm not buying anything else that needs be so exact from them anymore. Hope I save someone some aggravation.

    I dealt with this a while back on my Raptor quad. I will never again buy moose or non oem jets.

    Jet sizes differ from supplier to supplier - (no matter what they say) - you don't always get what you expect .......

    I used the moose rebuild kit when I did the Raptor quad I spoke of before. I ended up pulling everything out and having buy all oem stuff instead. Did you compare the needle jets, mine weren't even close to oem (both carbs). That really messed things up for me. It was hard to tell though with the naked eye.

    Yes, I compared shape and length but even with my magnifying glass they look identical.



    Here are the leftover parts from the rebuild kit:




    I hope the carb rebuild kit is designed for multiple versions of the carb so that there are always unused parts.
    There is no place to install them in my carb.
    (I removed and replaced one part at a time so that I wouldn't get them mixed up)

    I appreciate the warning so if it doesn't run well I will know where to look.
    Of course I'm keeping all the old parts, and I have two spare carbs.

    One problem is that I can't figure out how the throttle cable housing (sheath?) comes out of the top of the carb.
    It doesn't unscrew, it turns freely, and it won't pull out.
    The new throttle cable looks the same, maybe the ferule of the housing (is that the correct word?) is just corroded in place and just needs a good yank with vise grips?
