    How to remove needle/seat in carb

    I have a 96 polaris SL700 w dual Keihin CDK II carbs.

    Trying to do a carb rebuild and replace the needle and seat, I cant figure out how to get the old seat out...

    Do I have to hammer it out? Im just worried because it is brass and will scar badly if I hit on it. Is there a certain side I should try to hit out from? Any ideas?

    on my mikuni carbs the seat where the needle goes into is held on by a bracket with a screw. then with a pair of needle nose pliers i gently pull it out.

    Keihin CDK II seat is part of the carb body i believe according to the polaris manual.

    remove the jet block. 1 screw. then you can get to it. see it.

    thanks for the info, I had already looked at the manual and it did not say how to remove the seat,

    I think you are right about it being part of the carb body, I think you have to replace the jet body to replace the seat,,

    why does sbtontheweb have the seat for sale then???
