Nobody sells kits with air jets, and unless you lose one I never replace them.
I have heated the bowl with carb cleaner until it boils the clog. If all else fails I have lots of extra carb bowls.
The 2 marks on top should not be a problem as they are outside the seal, but the lower one might be a leak point.[ATTACH]
Those 2 orings that come in those kits no one know what they fit. And those 195 air jets where missing or damaged?

Are you talking about air jets in the top of the carb? And did you replace the throttle shaft seals?
So how much was it to ship?
Throttle shaft seals? And you are setting idle after the engine it hot ?
Empty the oil and put new stuff in and put some miles on it to see if problem persists. It’s factory pressed in with epoxy.

If all your efforts fail I do have a set of Mikuni carbs that are in parts.

I’m sure I have a good cap that you can swap out the key. Let me have a look today. Never seen that done as the chrome part is crimped to the body.

This Seca headlight bucket! Or these carbs for a midnight maxim! Will probably use them on my midnight because they are nasty
Quick visit with Jim yesterday and came home with a couple of boxes of carbs and gauges. And a Seca 650 headlight bucket.
