B53E needle came with a bushing?

2 posts in this topic

Hi There,

I ordered a B53E needle for my 2000 XR650R (uncorked-had a B53F in it when I bought it). The needle came with what looks like a bushing. Does anyone know where it goes or if I even need it?

I believe you are talking about the needle seat. Pay attention to the one you take out and put the new one back in the same orientation. If my memory serves me correct, you will have to take out the main and slow jets to get to it. Once they are out the seat should slide out of the hole the slow jet threaded into. Be careful when sliding it out so you can see which way it comes out.

If you don't have a service manual you can download one here...

It will have pics and will show you how to get to the stock needle seat.
