I've been eyeballing one of these myself, just to prevent what just happened to you.


I'm not sure if the TT store carries them, but I'd check there first. The service will be better and the shipping faster.

Don't feel bad, did the same thing myself. Used superglue and some teflon tape as a temp solution until the replacement part came in. Seemed to work okay.

Yeah broke mine while moving the carb around for some tuning. Can you believe the little plastic POS has only three threads??? And costs 5 bucks as well.
