Oops! This looks important!
Permalink  
 


I just found a part that I forgot to put back in my carb after fooling around with jetting. Oops! how important is this? Is it ok to ride without it? Probably not, but I would like to make sure before I tear my carb apart for the 10th time within the last week. Please help.

LOL - don't panic Terence! 

It's a baffle that stops the petrol sloshing around the main and pilot jets.

Your TTR will most likely work perfectly well without it unless you are a Championship class enduro rider wink

Just remember to fit it next time you have the carb off for another reason biggrinbiggrin

If you do find a problem running without it then I would be very interested to know the symptoms.

Go ride it and see smile

Lol, thanx Brian. I was really starting to sweat there. I'll report back if I notice any odd symptoms.

I have done it myself. It is so easy to put a carb back together only to find a "spare" part on the bench when tidying up - no matter how careful or how good your systems are disbelief

If it is of any reassurance, the early carbs didn't have the baffle fitted wink

Hey Brian, is there such a thing as a 51 pilot jet for these bikes? Or would 52 be the next incroments up? My jet kit came with a 52.5, which is too rich. And the stock 50 I have is too lean (USA bike).

To the best of my knowledge the standard pilot jets are in increments of 2 so jump from #50 to #52 with no #51.

I wouldn't have thought that the engine would be that sensitive to such a small change confuse

Presumably your #52.5 is non-standard?

 AFAIK- All TTR's have the baffle, see HERE. I know my old OE 1994 model had one installed. Edit: I tink you mean the older bikes. wink

Not that it is absolutely necessary though unless you are throwing the bike around a lot.

 Correct!

Terrence has the 6 Sigma jet kit... A #140 main with the needle set to the richest setting (apparently) so yes, non-standard.

I would suggest a #52 genuine Teikei, Brian should be able to help at a small cost. Failing that, you will need to buy jet drill bits and make the #50 into a #51 (which should be a .051mm drill bit).
