broke my carb fuel intake nipple KLR650

I'm a dumbass.

while taking out my carb to remove the engine, I broke off the fuel intake nipple, (plastic, press fit)

Any suggestions on a repair?

Can the left in the carb broken part be removed?

If so there maybe a replacement.

Usually it is the plastic choke housing at the carb, which get snapped.

Been there/done that...........the breather tube at the top of the carb is a different color, but is the same fitting as the fuel inlet plastic tube on the KLR. Thus, you can switch them out (while you order a new one) and get the bike running.

Really? Good to know.

I've broken one too. It's easy to swap in a replacement. Couple screws holding it in place.

+1.

When you order a new one order 2 - usefull to have a spare! Broke one before a ride and fabricated one out of copper tubing that lasted the trip.- with a few leaks
