The bike was running a little rough so I decided to clean the carb. Now I haven't actually removed the carb 100%, just removed the front and back clamps in order to twist it to the side and remove the bowl.
I removed all the jets to take a look at them and clean them, but I noticed when I removed the pilot jet (the one with the little side holes all in the end) it sort of looked like it had a little black gasket (worn)around the middle of the pilot jet. I also noticed that one of the little side holes had a piece of what I think is some sort of rubber gasket in the hole.
All of the stuff I have looked at for other pilot jets, do not have any gasket looking thing. I am really just looking for someone to say, "hey you don't need that.... remove it." or "yeah that is the so and so and it needs to be replaced."
Also what would be a ball park number of twists out for the air mixture screw. I removed it before screwing it in and backing it out, so not really sure where mine was. I am just looking for a ball park on number of turns out. 1, 6, etc...? I can adjust once I get everything running.
