    Odd Carb Parts

    Will trade 2001 blinkers for little rubber carb enricher plug.

    During carb cleaning my black rubber or plastic plug fell out. During reinstallation it wonít stay in the hole and itís pretty buggared, so itís gotta go. I know I can get it from Boats.net for like 4 bucks plus shipping, but thought Iíd ask if anyone has any spares. Right now I have the old turn signals from my bike (2001 - has third wire driving lights) to trade if anyone needs them. I see what they go for on eBay and think itís froggin ridiculous. So they are yours if you have a spare plug. Iíll pay shipping for the blinkers. Also need some needle shims for experimentation if you have some and a drain screw (although I can make my nasty old one work if I have to).

    Also during cleaning I noticed that the o-ring on my drain plug spent the last of its nine lives and found a suitable nitrile replacement in the $5 kit I got from Harbor Freight so Iím ok on that piece.

    I know my pictures are not that great but does anyone think the crud on that enricher plug is from some kind of sealer/adhesive or just poopy gas?

    I had fun reading some threads about how important that little plug is. Cheers.

    Where does that plug go? Is it in the hole beside the idle mixture screw? Man I would just order one and keep those mint signals.

    Itís the one circled in red. I wonít pretend to understand the physics, but without the plug my choke (enricher) wonít work.

    Thanks to jbfla for the photo and for giving me the blueprint for everything carb related. He or elime or one of the other large brained carb guys will probably explain it better. I spent hours reading old posts and know just enough to know itís necessary.

    Iíll probably just buy the part but have been the recipient of lots of favors so thought Iíd offer them up. They didnít look that nice until I detailed them. Perfect working order and Iím hoping this wonít be my only TW so Iíll keep them if no takers. Cheers

    We can leave the thread here for now, it might get more views, getting you back on the road quicker...

    Kinda looks like old Permatex or something...

    The rubber plug is a "friction" fit....no sealer.

    As you mentioned, the plug blocks an opening to the enricher (choke) circuit.

    Don't know why it's there, only that if the opening is not blocked off, the choke will not draw fuel from the bowl, and it will be difficult to tune your engine (air leak).

    The original plug in my carb was several mm thick. When I ordered a replacement, it was only about 1 mm thick...but still worked.

    The fitting with the o-ring is for the air vent (equalizes air pressure inside the carb) not the drain.

    Take good care of the fitting, it is another part that is not available as a separate piece.

    jbfla is correct. I lost the rubber plug during my carb rebuild. The bike does run but backfired and the choke doesnít work meaning the bike wonít start with the choke on. Ordered the plug for mine from Babbittís.

    Sorry - turn signals are not for sale. I was hoping to trade them for a few parts I need but have already found a source for them. Cheers

    I just got a new rubber plug in from Yamaha this week for mine and it looked like the original, maybe 1/4" thick with a hole part way through from one side. Had to place another order so got a spare to have in my little carb parts kit.
