4Strokes.com Honda Technical: XR650L Carburetor Fuel Mixture Screw Mod by Brian Farewell
I was unable to find an aftermarket carburetor fuel mixture screw for my 2008 Honda XR650L that was long enough to keep me from getting burned every time I tried adjusting it because it is so close to the exhaust pipe. So I made my own easily and very inexpensively. It worked so well, I thought I would send it to 4Strokes.com to publish in their Honda Technical section for all to enjoy!
I had some extra tire valve stem caps that I had picked up at an inexpensive hardware/tool store for next to nothing. The knurled aluminum valve stem caps are long, making it easier to grip, and come in different colors like red, blue, and natural aluminum silver color.
Directions to install valve stem cap on fuel mixture screw:
Tip: A tiny dab of blue (NOT red) thread-lock compound on the threads of the fuel mixture screw will help keep it from turning on its own if the threads are loose. A small lightweight coil type spring between the fuel mixture screw and carb body will accomplish the same.
