Found out my choke screw in thing cracked in half and need a new one but the little plunger things seem to be cheaper and i found one for a nighthawk but it also says its compatible with a gen 1 rebel but i dont know the differences between a gen 1 rebel carb and gen 2 other than it runs richer
They retain the same type of main and pilot jets as the rebel although, if they are in fact different carbs. the nighthawk came with a 110 main, from what ive found the nighthawk came with a better flowing exhaust. Thus upping the main jet from 108 to 110. I removed the rear tip baffles on mine, 38 pilot 110 main(going to be going up to 115 to see how it does) with 15tf30tr. I got 62.5mpg 2 days ago on do a 100 mile trip from the mountains to Atlanta averaging 70mph while on the highway. Top speed is what the speedometer reads now, mpg went from 45-50 to 60+mpg from front and rear sprocket change. i upped the main as it was leaning out after i removed only the rear tips. The bike is now night and day different, how horrible it is stock from the factory.
