There is full oil pressure there. Without the bolt, the oil engine oil would probably drained in about 2 minutes.

IIRC, Oil comes in through a port just below the cap. Then it goes down through the jet and through the clutch pushrod to the other side of the engine.

Can you post a pic?
I'm at a loss as to how I could have no bolt and at the same time not be losing oil. I'm starting to get worried.

I'll post pics when I get home.

If that's what it's supposed to look like, then the bolt is not there.

Thanks! This worked great for me, just pressed it in after unthreading the jet, and it stuck right to it.

Nevermind!! I'm retarded. The bolt is there. Thanks for the help.

The jet from my SMT is marked "30" but it doesn't have a hole on the top of the cone. There is a hole on the bottom but I can't get anything to poke through.

My thoughts would be it's plugged.....

I think everything newer then 05' came with a JET, not a plug.

I got it. Even though the top of the cone looked all brass with no hint of a hole, I started picking away at it and ultimately got it opened back up by with a few spins of an Xacto blade.

I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but electric guitar strings are brilliant for cleaning these jets, and other similar jets of different sizes. A pack costs all of $10 or so, great for the toolbox.

Dang, That was REALLY plugged. I'd check your booster system "ramps" and make sure it's not cooked before you have more issues for lack of oil flow.

Here's what the New Version (Convex design) of the Jet (hole seems smaller) Looks like whereas the Old Version was Concave.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...196367&page=12

" I got a new #30 jet, installed it, and immediately enjoyed the drag-free clutch action I had before the mod.


One nice little detail about the replacement jet-



If you look close, you will see the center area of the jet is convex, and resembles a volcano's profile, as opposed to my original jet which had a concave center. The old jet allowed even the tiniest amount of debris block the the extremely small opening.
The new-style jet will require a relatively large amount of debris to pile up high enough to restrict flow. Nice!"

I literally unwound the E string on my Martin (on which I can currently play three or four chords) and it still would not poke through.

I don't know no booster system ramps. Please elaborate.

I haven't noticed any shifting issues. I forgot to check it during the bike's first oil change last year. I just performed its second oil change. The bike has just over 5000 miles.

I'll try with a hot engine But what a pain to access that screw, I'll try to make a special tool to make the job easier...
I tried this method. Worked like a charm. Little clay bar from my car detail supplies on the end of a small screw driver pulled it out. But I failed to check the box end of the wrench which was full of crap from my 73' bronco rebuilt. Yup I dropped a ton of crap in the hole. Cleaned it all out and put it back together. Working great. Life, live and learn. Die and forget it all.
