    xlt 1200 primer kit

    I have disabled the acell. pump and re jetted the carbs. And now i want to install a primer kit . can i use the existing acell. pump nozzles in carbs for the primer kit? I am going to leave choke plates in place. Anyone done this?

    I used to have my pump disabled on my old GPR; I could just pop the seat and reach down to use the pump as a primer. Of course, it was a little easier to get to it since I had a Stinger on.

    I am using the oem exhaust, so i thought it would be easier to install primer.

    You should be able to rig something up to use the accel pumps as a primer. PM Fercho, bet he can help you come up with an idea.

    I already have a Riva primer kit. Acell. pump is shot. Just looking for suggestions on were to inject fuel on these sidedraft carbs with choke plates left intact.

    I assume you are still running oil injection. you can use the two fittings for the accel pump one on #1 and one on #3 unfortunately there is nothing on #2 but getting gas to at least two will get you started. I just did a set of carbs for a friend and pulled the pump and plates got an accel removal kit from Island Racing and took all the accel pump stuff off. this makes for a much cleaner install and the kit was inexpensive around $20.

    I changed to premix when i rebuilt engine last year. Would the primer work better in old oil injection nozzle or the accell. pump nozzle?
