Zip Tye Problems - Please Help !

I have a zip tye screw that once I back it out more than 1 1/4 turns, it real loose and backs it self out while running. I need to get it to 2 1/2 turns but I am afraid that I would loose it. Has anyone else had this problem ? I tried using the search engine, but it is down right now.

Is the O ring and spring in place? :ride:

zip tye?

zip ty fuel screw that whats they are referring to

Yes, everything is in place. At 1 1/4 turns it tight and does not move. Anything past that and you can wiggle it back and forth and it is real loose.

Whenever you install the Zip-TY fuel screw, you are suppossed to stretch the spring out a little bit so that it keeps constant pressure on the screw, preventing it from backing out.

Go ahead and take the whole assembly out, and stretch the spring just a little bit, so that you are making it longer than normal. This will now allow the spring to keep tension on the screw, and she'll no longer back out.

I will give that a try. Thanks for everyones help !

that seems kinda hokey to me... the MSR i bought works great out of the box, which is how it SHOULD be IMO :ride:

Forget the quick adjust fuel screws, pick up one of these and don't worry about screws falling out.

Hey Reyn, You're right it is kinda hokey..but I read too many cases of people losing their fuel screw out on the track/trail. So the general consensus is to stretch the spring a little. I've had no problems since install, but it should have been mentioned in the instructions, or corrected with the design.

good point...it's better to have to do a little spring stretching than lose a fuel screw, thats for sure.

How hard is it to stretch a spring? FFS. :ride:

put a spring on the screw. i have a carb ike that. it has a spring on it so that their is presure pushing on it and that stops it from backing from viberation.
