carburator float valve sticking

Post  Shawn Brennan on Thu Mar 05, 2015 6:37 pm

Hi, my name is Shawn, and I'm new here. Just asking a question, is the brass tube, that the float valve piston slides into, replaceable? I'm looking on bike bandit, and don't see a part number for it. The issue is, some monkey, prior owner i guess, tried to remove said part, with a pair of pliers, so it's marred. I think the float valve piston is sticking in the tube, causing the carburetor to flood.

First off, thank you for your reply! That slide show was very informative. the part I'm trying to replace is the brass pipe, that the pilot valve slides into. Hopefully you can see in the picture, where some monkey ass tried to take it out with a pair of needle nose pliers.

Upload the picture to a website like photobucket and then right click on the picture and select "properties" copy the url and then click the "insert an image" icon on the form and paste the link into the box....dead easy once you have done it once....bit like anal sex asking for it ...well that's what Fruity tells me StirPot

Yo chaps, the poor oke is looking for the partnumber of the seat - which mates to the float's needle! Needle & Seat, Float, floatbowl, the bottom of the carb, the brass McYver in which the thingymajingy slides.... that one!
Come on now, giving the dude exploded views of the slide to change the jetneedle, shame..... razz

Nice one Mauser!

Shawn, say "Fank Joo" to him because that was very quick, and easy too because you can give your stealer the number, pay them and wait until it comes in.
Yeah, 'Stock' is a village in rural Afghanistan for them, they'll only order after you've paid them of course Bump

Slightly cheaper but over in the UK, no doubt over in the US you will get it for free Bump

Did you ever get this fixed I have the same problem. Looking at that part number that's not what he's looking for.
We need part number for the brass piece the float valve drops into.
