Boy Kwizard those look to show promise. I have a bit of time today, and since it appears the rain has stopped at least for awhile. What I had been thinking of is slipping a section of small diameter metal tubing over the end of the adjustment jet and affixing it with epoxy. Hardware stores and hobby shops have a variety of such tubes. I'll give it a try and let you folks see what I can put together. Well luckily the rain held off so I was able to roll the bike out and work in the Sun. Not rocket science, but in the back of my mind I was sure hoping I could purchase a replacement if this project did not work. As the threaded part of the jet goes all the way to the end and includes the screw driver slot, I had to turn it down to the i.d. of the tube. As well, the hole that the jet screws into is no larger than the o.d. of the jet, so the o.d. of the tube I used could not be any larger than the diameter of the threaded section of the jet. Seems all went well. Tube is pinned and epoxied to the jet and lateral force on that joint when turning will be minimized by the fact that the tube is 'in' and supported laterally by the jet hole. I will let the epoxy cure for a day and set about readjusting. BOY the placement of that jet makes adjustment VERY awkward. Gerry
The jet is installed and adjusted. Here is a view from the exhaust side. Because of my shroud, I can't access from this side without getting burnt. On the other side, the cam tensioner prevents a 'slam dunk' adjustment, but still far, far easier than what I had to go through before. The view from the left is marginal, but the material on the jet extension is braided fuel injection hose. It provides a nice gripping surface, does not absorb heat form the engine, and allows some flexibility as to minimize lateral stress on the extension. Time as always, will tell, but I don't foresee any problems.
