Is my carb missing something?
Hey guys I could use a little help please
2003 XT600E bought the bike 8 months ago noticed it was a little "lumpy" at the slower speeds (0 - 1/4 throttle) thought id get that sorted later .....
Then found the whole bike including the engine needed rebuilding! (long story)
The bike is back together now and im running it in but the surging / lumpyness at the lower end is still there.
Ive pulled the carb appart had it ultrasonically cleaned and put it back together, ive been adjusting the pilot jet and I think i'm about there now - it looks like someone has had this carb appart before as I found the diaphragm folded in half!
The only thing I can think of is a possible missing o-ring (but having never seen another one I dont know if its missing or not)
If im right then its item 17 page B13 in the 2002 parts catalog.
Basically on my carb when I take the bowl off I can only see 1 rubber part (the bowl gasket) should I be able to see an o-ring too?
Otherwise any other suggestions are welcome.
