Hey,so I have 2005 800. It has been sitting for about 7 months. I just got it shipped to fort Lewis from cali. Like an idiot the first thing I did was change the battery then start it. Ran for about 5 minutes then turned off. I believe I clogged the carb with the old gas. I flushed the tank and changed the plugs. I took the carb off yesterday to clean it and broke the gray plastic peace on it. Does anyone know how to replace that?

92064 if you follow the line back to the carb there is a l shape plastic part coming out that I believe the gass line connects to. I can not upload a photo on my phone for some reason. Will upload tonight

My pilot jet is brass, or a brassy material, not gray plastic. I'm lost here.

If you are talking about the elbow just above where the float bowl connects, I don't think you can buy it separate from the carb. You may be best to find another carb. If you take the carb body into a Harley or independent shop, they may have this piece, some Harleys used the same carb, like on many 883 Sportstres I believe, kinda like the Holley for motorcycles.

i think shawn is describing the fuel inlet elbow. there is no part number, a "non-serviced" part.

However, HD (using Keihin carbs) guys have a brass replacement...requires some extensive surgery.

check this link...see if it works. Fuel Max Inlet Elbow - Harley Carburetors

there is another link on that page for replacement procedure.

Yes that was the peace I am talking about. Hopefully I can find it. Do you know what model carb I can buy to replace.
