Just had a Yammie 1600 roll outa here. The owner had a few carb issues (nice blue pipe skins) and I told him I'd have to check out what was in the carb.

He bought this bike used a coupla months ago from a woman in Florida and it came with a pile of receipts for recent work. Had a BAK on it and the receipts show the dealer charged her for a jet kit.

Opened the carb up and really got confused about the jetting they did.

There are three jets in there and no two had the same manufacturers marks. Actually, only one had a manufacturer mark, one had a jet size and one had nuthin. So much for a kit, eh?

The part that has me confused, though, is the needle. This one had fine, striated crossmarks down the taper. I just ain't seen that before and not sure it makes sense.

Anybody seen a needle like that before?

Update- Got a Factory Pro kit here on the desk in front of me. The Yammie is coming back Thursday and we're gonna know what's in there from now on.

Trying to guess what someone else had in mind bites.
