I bought a new needle valve but I dont know if I should replace the housing and screen that came along with it. I wanted to go ahead and do it but I dont know how the old housing comes out. I don't have an owners manual or anything either. Can't wait to start riding again... Thanks for any suggestions.

Looking straight at the underside of the float camber, there is a screw and washer immediately next to the float needle seat. This screw holds the seat into the carb body. Replace both the needle and the seat.

For a manual, look at the bottom of the page in the Common Threads Sticky, top of the forum index.
