This should be a sticky

The carburetor slide cutaway ALWAYS faces the clean-air side of the intake, NOT the engine. FACT.

Yeah, I've fixed many of these where the old axiom "it only fits one way-the right way" was employed.

That's about as useful as the FACT that the fill-orifice in the fuel tank should always face upwards.

youse guys are awesome

The throttle slide is so easy for experienced mechanics, it is often overlooked by the n00bs. Many of the users of this 2-smoker forum are new to their machines, and make mistakes.

Actually, it IS possible to put the slide in backwards on some carbs.

On one side is the slot for the positioning pin and the other side of the slide has the cut for inserting the throttle cable.

I have run across this several times when sombody accidently got them confused.

No - I've bought a couple of cheap bikes that wouldn't run like that. Keep the n00bs in the dark so those more experienced can gain an advantage.

Yeppers, I bought some carbs from a scrap yard, and I had 2 Right hand side slides, , I sent the carbs back and bought some brand new ones , Flat slides look and work better

It's an archaic, sometimes perverse, example of an intelligence test.

It appears to still be working...
