Here are some pics of the BK mod.
There were a few people asking about pic's of the mod so I took some when I had my carb off.
I used a 6-32 x 1" long machine screw with a number 36 tap drill.
I needed a spring but couldnt find one long enough so I used 2 that I found on an old weed eater and just put a washer in between the springs.
Pic's didnt post...........Damn
oh well I tried.............

Great pics - probably the best I have ever seen in terms of showing detail!!!!!

The mods are what I envisioned - however, I do remember adjusting the upper screw when I first got my bike - don't forget I am the one who's bike WAS THE WORST for the cut-out.

Anyway, who can explain why the BK mod is as good as claimed? Is that because it acts as a positive dead-stop on the rod travel? Must be so.

Did you try Lowe's hardware for the long spring?

Thanks again for the pics guys - I have been waiting and waiting for those.

Great pics. Why didn’t you just cut the screw?

Boomer,

The whole point of this mod is to shorten the pump stroke. This shortens the duration and amount of accelerator pump discharge whenever you twist the throttle.

Total stroke on a stock carb is limited by the button on the pump diaphragm which eventually bottoms on the inside of its housing after the rod travels about 3 mm. Using the mod pictured I have cut this to 1 mm, after considerable experimentation I always end up at roughly the same adjustment.

An additional benefit is the pump is easily disabled with the screw, and jetting your bike with the pump turned off is the best (and easiest) way to do it. Then turn the screw out until you get the best throttle response.

This has all been covered before.
