If you look at the upper surface of the float bowl where the needle is, there should be a small Phillips head screw next to the seat. This retains the seat, and must be removed in order to remove the seat. If there is no such screw, your bike may have a later model carburetor that has a permanently pressed in need seat.

What are the first 5 characters of the numbers stamped on the side of the float bowl joint?
