I'm making my bike not foul plugs anymore and there is a jet in there that we (me and the local Yamaha dealership) can't seem to figure out what it is. All the descriptions in the manual and microfische call it a "jet" pretty descriptive, eh?

Well anyways, its pretty small and the number on it is 72
Anyone know what jet that is?? :)

after about 50 minutes of searching this site, i found its a "starter jet"...now if i go by the name, does that mean it throws fuel in it when starting?

I believe it is part of the choke circuit.

A "starter jet" could also be the idle or low speed circuit.

Is the jet in the float bowl or in the back side of the carb near the carb float?

That should be the choke jet.

I wouldnt think youd need to mess with a choke jet.

You may just need a larger Pilot air jet.
