Is the Leak jet a fuel jet or an air Jet

9 posts in this topic

I noticed under the jetting specs that the leak jet seems to be different then all other jets, is this one a fuel or an air jet, I notice as the temp goes down (normally needs larger fuel jets) the leak jet specs also go down, thought this was backwards if it's a fuel jet?

It is a fuel jet. it leaks fuel back into the bowl.

A smaller leak jet is richer because it leaks less fuel.

Is this the only MC carb with 4 jets? I am used to 3-jetted carbs. This 4-jet stuff is new to me!

Thanks - Scott

The best thing about FI is that it compensates for varying temperatures and altitide, and Atmospheric Pressure, no more needing for tweaking and rejetting and it will gain you a small amount of HP too.......... how can you be a non beleiver.
