    Question Carb restrictor question on xlt1200

    I am in the process of cleaning and rebuilding the carbs on my 2002 xlt 1200 2 stroke, on the front and middle carb. the ports known as restrictors which control the fuel return (on the pump side) are clear and open but on the rear carb I am not even sure the hole exists? Attempted to use a pin and spray cleaner but can not even find an area that looks like a machined area for the very small restrictor . Does anyone know for some reason does the third carb not have this restrictor, did some not have the port due to a defect if it is suppose to be there can I drill a new one and how important is the size. Thanks for any help I can get. Rodger

    Hello Rodger all 3 carbs should have a return restrictor hole.

    Rodger I think the best thing to do is post a picture of what you have. You asked me this question in early June, and I gave you the same answer Jim just did.
