OK Flite, help me out here. I'm looking at the pics in this thread: http://www.hondarebelforum.com/f39/c...mbly-1743.html and I cannot see the "#2" part that was giving you all the grief. I see the needle jet/spring/plate set, but for the life of me, I don't see the part you are referring too. It appears to be in the same place that I installed a shim when I rejetted my carb.

It goes down inside the opening for the main jet. Most of the time it never comes out of that orifice. It was just by chance it fell out while cleaning the carb.

Yup, messed it up all on my own and solved it through pure dumb luck! If I hadn't had another carb to compare it with, might never have figured it out

Fun, sweaty, and fearful. Rode out to my land, 25 miles away. It was getting dark and storm clouds were building. It was great to be on a bike again, but I don't like riding in the dark (because of deer) or the rain. Fortunately, I missed any deer and only crossed some sections of road the rain had already passed over. The downside is it was still very warm.

It's not the needle or spring; it's the other thingy. Like Mojo said, it hardly ever falls out. So even though I've cleaned several carbs, I didn't uderstand how it fit untill I got ready to substitute another carb.

Thanks for your patience folks!

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Flite, now that the carb is all shiny and new, I know you installed a new fuel line filter. Did you do the same for the 2009?

Haven't done much with the '09 except unload it off the trailer. Yes, the '04 has a new inline filter.
