    High speed or Low speed

    Ok,
    Just making sure I'm correct on this..I'm getting ready to put my carbs back in my 98 XPL and want to make sure if when your looking at the carbs from the top mounted on the engine the adjustment T-handles are for the Low-speed circuit and the non T-handle screws on the bottom are for the high-speed circuit. Correct...
    Thanks,
    Steve

    I always put grease or Hylomar on the gaskets so they could be re-used, grease on the unthreaded part of the bolts, blue loctite on the threads and on every bolt and screw to the carbs and support that attaches to the pipe. I didn't one time and the screws to the support backed out part way with the flame arrestors holding them in place and it messed up the threads in the carbs. they vibrate bad and need the loctite.

    Forget the locktight on those carb bolts... Those are a pain in the a$$ to get off as it is.. The locktight makes it worse.. Trust me when i say they will be coming off again...

    I agree with GTXX. Two drops of blue isn't going to make it as hard to get back off as the yellow stuff from BRP. And it's needed. Why chance squeaking a piston?

    The mentality shouldn't be they are coming back off. The purpose for Loctite is to prevent them from coming off before you want them to...

    Also grease the shaft of the bolt going through the body of the carb with white lithium grease. They have a tendency to get stuck if you ride in salt water especially.

    the screws on the top of the carb are easy to get out if you use the right tools and a screwdriver isn't it. a tight fitting phillips bit and a 1/4" drive ratchet is the ticket. give the bit a good tap to seat it in the screw and break the loctite and it always comes out easy.

    Dry application on the gaskets
    A tidbit of Antisieze on the bolts
