Float needle

Post by shotgun » Fri Mar 22, 2019 4:15 pm

Hi guys, just reviving my daughters 1999 L9 and taken the opportunity to strip and clean the carbs. Does anyone know how to remove the small, domed filter that sits above the float needle. I purchased a kit including bowl gasket, float needle and assembly but doesn’t come with filter. Need to remove and put on new item but there doesn’t seem to be much mention of them. Thanks.

That brass dome filter just pulls out. The fine mesh is part of the dome

Has an o-ring on it.

Thanks for the very prompt reply. I’ll have another try at it.
