pilot jets

apparently these bikes came with two different pilot jet options, ones a long one ones a short one, the pilot jet that is in mine is the long one, the one they sent me is the short version, are they interchangeable, I do mean the pilot not the main.

ok have to ask why if theses carbs are basically unchanged, would they have two different jets one that's shorter the the other, both fit but the shank is much shorter.

Actually there were minor changes to the carbs over the years. I'm not sure what years each change took place.

I'd contact jets r us and perhaps send them a photo of your pilot jet.

I'm sorry, ....someone posted the same question years back but I can't remember what the answer was....but it was either:

1.They installed the jets they got anyway and all was well.
Or
2. They sent them back and got the right ones.

So again, contacting the company you bought them from is the best next move...

Yep the first one is the right one get a size 38 if your bike is stock or a 42 if you are doing an ear shave
