CRF50 - I've lost the piece that connects the valve to the needle

3/1/2018 1:08am Edited Date/Time 3/21/2018 4:31am
So basically I dropped the float needle when cleaning the carb and amazingly the top piece flew off, nowhere to be seen again. I looked everywhere but I can't find it.

I ordered a new AllBalls carby kit but this little piece of metal wasn't included. And it doesn't seem like Honda sell it either? Does anyone have a part number for this?

Or alternatively, is it better to just upgrade to a CRF80 carburetor? Best place for a carby. There's so many types on e Bay.

Thank you

Hmm, not quite what I mean (see below).



Used the wrong words, my bad!

Yeah, just that top piece on the float valve (Part #10)? I didn't even know it was able to come off and it looks like a new #10 doesn't have the top metal thing with the loop to operate the actual float.

It should come with it.

I did the same thing. Walked into local shop and they had one laying around.

New Honda float valve should come with it attached as mentioned above.

So I went ahead and ordered the part and! Unfortunately it didn't come with that small metal piece.

I was told by the Honda dealer that they recently gave the Kawasaki dealer a big box of parts for these bikes so I'll see if I can snag it from them.

Otherwise I'll order a cheapy carb from eBay as I found one with a new inlet at 45mm spacing.
