I have a brand new 2015 Honda Rebel, purchased in 2016. I apologize for not having a signature. For some reasons, I could not find the signature link or button in myCP. I will keep posting my bike info under my post until I find out how to set it up.
I did not drain the fuel (and everything else) to winterize my bike properly. Couple months ago, I turned the petcock to "On" and the fuel started running out from the overflow (?) tube. I did some research and I believe the flow system got stuck due to bad gas residue. I drained the gas completely and poured a can of Seafoam in the tank, let it go in the carb (until it leaked), then let it in there overnight. The next morning, when I turned the petcock to "On" and "Res," gas ran out the overflow line. So the experiment failed.
I decided to take the carb apart and clean it after watching a lot of Youtube. I have never done anything like this before.
Yesterday I successfully removed the carb and took everything apart. I took pictures and videotaped when I worked.
I made a mistake, though. A huge one.
I was so excited I was able to pull the carb out after a lot of fighting with the rubber air intake coupling. I was so exciting, I used the wrong screwdriver to remove the main jet and damaged it. I was able to remove it easily later with a correct size screwdriver, but the damage was done. The screw slot is damaged but I can still screw it in and out. I think I can file it and it will be clean and usable.
For the last two days, I have desperately tried to shop for the part. Surprisingly, even the almighty Amazon does not carry it. It only has some listings with quite vague descriptions. Ebay have better offers:
Main jet 1
Main jet 2
Is it safe to reuse the jet? (Or this is a very dumb question??)
Which eBay offer should I go with? Or, are there other places or stores I can shop for a reliable part?
I appreciate your helps!
Again, I apologize for not be able to post the bike in my signature, because I could not find where the signature can be set.
