  • carb problem

    I have a 1999 road star that is running rich. My mechanic says that that the hole that the emulsion tube is pressed into has become wollowed out or the emulsion tube itself is worn and I need a new carb. I posted this problem on another forum and they told me to get a new mechanic. I pulled the air box and revved it and there is indeed a pretty large blast of fuel shooting up from around the tube. Has anyone ran into this problem? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

    Something isn't right with what your mechanic is saying. The emulsion tube doesn't move once it's set in place by the jet being tightened into the bottom. If your still having problems with your carb and wanting someone to work on it, I'll be glad to check it out if your wanting.

    You can buy new emulsion tubes, but I've never ran across a worn out tube.

      Nice offer Duke! That's what this forum is about. I was wondering about an emulsion tube wearing out It's not like your running sand thru it. Elvis man, I'd jump on that offer. Duke is a carb guru. Or just come to the PNW Starfest and meet him and he can look at your bike there!

        Thank you for the plug Mike. I Will be working on his carb after Starfest. He is in Florida and said he'd like to be at Starfest but has other plans.

      first thing I would like to know is what jets are being used and what notch the needle clip is located in. I agree with Duke that there is no reason for it to be worn out. If by some slim chance that it is just replace it . It is sealed inside of the fuel bowl with the press fit of a brass spacer against the carb body so the only fuel that can get into it is thru the main jet. My guess is that the jetting is wrong or the coasting enricher is stuck like was talked about on the forum just the other day.

        I can let you know when I receive the carb Dave. I won't be receiving it until the middle of August.
