It's not jumping out at me, no. I've also never had an 800 carb apart, so that's not helping.

Yes, and it should come out of the carb that way. If not, make sure you find all those parts or confirm that they weren't there to begin with.

Glad you figured it out. Do you know what specifically was causing it to squeal? For what it's worth, there's an HD belt that works. I can't remember the part number of the top of my head but it's...

Not sure on sales numbers... but the 750 is kind of a weird bike. Lots of people hated the styling, and it is an odd fit in terms of performance, technology, etc. On a relatively compact cruiser...

Excellent. I think there's a set of 54mm filters in the garage from my 750 that I can test out. Thanks again.

Blaine, do you remember what jet combination you ended up with?

Good call on the locksmith. A local shop had no trouble making two new keys for the ignition lock and I was only out $35. Thanks!

If it didn't make me so nervous, I'd probably have done it a long time ago. Thankfully someone documented the 750 rebuild process years ago on Youtube. I just need to clean out space in the garage...

Replacing an EN500A key

I'm trying to replace a missing key on a 1994 EN500A for a friend. From digging online, I get the impression that Kawasaki no longer offers replacement keys based on VIN from the dealerships. There...

Have you tried opening the gas cap when it happens?

Also, confirm that you're still getting spark when it won't start.

It's an overflow vent. I believe it works its way back along the frame inside of the tank, then drops down and out alongside the other vents near the swingarm. Someone with access to a 500C can...
