Hey,

Anyone happen to know much about old suzuki carburetors? I have an 82 rm60z that I’m trying to reassemble. It was picked apart some time ago and is missing a few bits.

The carburetor (mikuni 466 30, I think) needs a needle jet (4J29-3 or 13383-56620 according to google). I can’t seem to find it anywhere. I tried my local suzuki dealer and he told me that they’ve discontinued the part. I seen a moose racing kit for the last rm60, which was a rebadged kx, I’ve been led to believe. I doubt either share the same carb with the 1982 model.

I’m thinking that I may have to just get a new carburetor, but the idea of buying a new carb for the sake of a needle and clip bothers me.

Thanks for your time.

Your needle is 13383-46620. And yes, it was discontinued in 2014. You may still be able to find one at a Suzuki dealer, however. It is definitely not the same as the carb on the '03-'05 RM/KX65.
There is also a part called "jet, needle" which is really a fitting for the main jet. That part is 09494-00250, just in case you need it. That one was cancelled in '97, however.
You may be able to find a replacement directly from Mikuni if you ask for needle #4029-3.

Yeah, thanks. The needle was the part that I needed. I didn't try Mikuni, but the guy from the dealership told me that they used the same carburetor for years, so I ordered one from a 79 that someone was parting out.
