I did my Google-foo before I posted, and saw that very pic.
My biggest problem is the sloppy feel in the slot, and it's just so over-torqued that I can't get enough downward pressure.
A good night's sleep is probly all it needs.
See y'all in the morning!!

When you have the jet out, take time to get a screw driver etc that fits nice before putting jet back in. Dont over tighten. It is only brass after all !

My screwdriver fits the new CJ jet PERFECTLY tight.
Fits like crap in the stock jet stuck in the hole...

I cleaned ours here in Mexico as our clutch was dragging, took the external bolt out, unscrewed the jet, got my long nose pliers with Ellens sewing needle.

Clamped the needle with the pliers, looking down the hole I pushed the needle into the centre of the jet hole and simply pulled it back out complete with jet, does not need much pressure just enough to wedge it.

That took probably three or four minutes max, the harder part was cleaning out what was essentially a totally blocked jet taking more than half an hour before I could poke the wire through freely, the bottom of the jet was solid.

Mission complete, unfortunately I didn't have any whiskey .... that was the most difficult bit!!!!

GOT IT !!

Two keys...
1) cleaned the oil out of the hole so I could see it, and how buggered up it's slot was.
2) enough downward pressure to break it loose
The Q-Tip trick I had read about got it right out after it was loose.

While I appreciate my dealer cleaning it at the last big service without being asked
(only explanation I can figure, bought the bike new),
he apparently buggered the slot, so the screwdriver fit like crap in the slot.

I'm sure glad I had just bought the .5mm jet from CJ and had it ready to go,
because I would never put that buggered AND clogged jet back in.

So I am a little confused here, is the factory .3 or the .5 aftermarket jet better for it?

Seems to be differing info.

We'll find out!
The stock .3 should work fine for most applications, if not clogged, but may cause some clutch drag in a standard clutch.
I am doing the .5mm on CJs recomendation, maybe it'll lube my Rekluse EXP setup better and help make it last longer.

That's all I know

I believe the .5 is the best

It uses the opinion of Meoni who increases the hole to 1.0 for more cooling and lubrication, but not too much to have oil sticking the discs together.

I think it depends what year bike you have. My 03 was dragging a bit so got a watch maker to drill it to .05. It kept on dragging till a few days ago. I bought a standard .03 and she runs sweet now.

Heya Ross, ours is manufactured 06.06.06 so a 666 beast so an 07 model.

It has the CJ Designs Billet Clutch basket but after cleaning it out still no real difference to notice.

I adjusted the clutch lever so it has better push on the master cyl which has helped but if a .5 would serve it beter I would aim for that too.

removing the jet

Here is how I got it out, duct taped a piece of garden hose to the end of my shop vac. After getting the jet loose it came right out, along with any crud oil.

The nice thing about it is if you bend the hose it kinks it so the jet doesn't go flying all the way into the vacuum with the dirt.

I just used a match: http://www.alexanderscience.org/pape...onal/match.jpg Push the backend into the jet and it wil stick to it.

That is what I did the first time, and it worked great.



The second time, I guess I didn't have the right brand of matches, and it wouldn't grip it. But, I tried a Q-Tip, and that did the trick.
