There are rubber plugs over the slow jets in the stock Mikuni carbs of my GS650.

When I stripped the carbs the first time last summer I found what looked to be degraded rubber in the bottom of the float bowl, and no plug over the slow jet. The carb tutorial on here does not show a plug there either. Parts fiches don't show them as far as I can tell.

...but, I'm still wondering:

are the stock Keihnin carbs on the 1st gen Rebels SUPPOSED to have plugs over the slow jets?

I think I may have answered my own question as to where the rubber was coming from. Just realized there was no o-ring left on the end of the carb drain plug...but that doesn't answer the original question:

are the stock Keihnin carbs on the 1st gen Rebels SUPPOSED to have plugs over the slow jets?

Thanks,

No there isn't a rubber plug on the slow jet.
