Ya might want to check that .... if I am reading your description correctly ... you have the parts backwards.

Pretty sure the spring goes between the brass part and the threaded part. Spring goes on the cable first then the brass part .... the tension of the spring holds the brass part in place while installing .... take a look at the microfiche

.... Pretty sure.

I guess most people know that the DR650 also uses the BST40 carb

Mine had phillips screws holding the bowl on.
They were a bastard to get off. I ended up liberally soaking them in WD40 before leaving them to sit for 20 minutes.
One head was mangled getting them out. Replaced with 2 allen head screws.

Kientech have a range of DR parts including a fuel screw which should fit all BST40

Burn,
If you get that stuck Philips screw, mangled head syndrome again, take a small needle nosed vice grips and lock on to the head of the screw...it will come loose easily. I carry a small needle nosed vice grips at all times.
Handy in many ways.

Air jets

Great thread -- I've been using it help diagnose a leak problem. This should definitely be on the LC4 Index.

One item I would add is the air jet:
http://rides.webshots.com/photo/1058...36995609fbyxiT

I didn't know what these were until other threads discussed 1.1 and 1.2 air jets.

dump

Can't remember where I saw folks discussing fitting throttle cables to a carb and MacGuyvering the old 90 degree cable adjuster assembly onto the new cable, maybe because they didn't know about this:

A bit of wd-40 or 2 stroke oil smeared on the o-ring.

you can usually find the jets for these carbs at Kawasuzuki dealers or Harley shops. both of them use the mikuni carb for several models. you may try one of these places before ordering threw the mail.
