I picked up a beat up 1998 tw200 and am slowly restoring it. What I can't figure out is how to remove the needle. I unscrewed the top cover and can see two little screws which I think are connected to the top of the slide. Can anyone help with a recommended method of taking the slide out? I've searched the board and googled it and can't find any info.
Remove the choke with a #12 wrench, take the top cover off (two screws), unscrew the shaft nut, unscew the cable mounting bracket, there is a snap ring around the shaft on the spring side inside the card that needs to be removed, slide the spring loaded shaft out enough to remove the slide, add a shim. I added only one shim to my carb.
