Oil Jet Size?

Went to clean the clutch oil jet today, and found out it still has the original blocking plug in it! Order a new jet and push rode from CJ right away.

I was thinking of drilling out the blocking plug so that I could ride until the new one arrives, but the smallest drill bit I have is a 1/16.

Will that be too big?

The jet is a 30, which I think is .3mm ? I have one on order as well since I thought I could blow through it with a little shot from the air hose to clear it out. I heard two ricochets but can't find it anywhere.

You've already been riding with the blind jet for a while.. A couple more miles won't hurt:) This whole clutch jet thingy is way overrated anyway.

I am sort of agreeing with you. Mine had the plug in it until around 29k miles when I started having a grabby clutch. First thing I did was change the oil jet,,,, no difference. What did solve the problem was swapping the last steel plate in the pack. Over 40k miles now and it's perfect.

I don't really have a "grabby" clutch, but do have some clutch drag while sitting a lights when the bike is warm. Could the disc swap help with that?

Possibly.... I had a very slight dragging clutch also but the biggest annoyance was the grabbiness when cold. Doesn't cost anything but about 1/2 hour of time to do the swap. Pull the outer cover, remove the pressure plate and pick at the clutch plates out until you come to the last steel plate. Swap that one with any other in the pack and put it all back together.
