    1200pv accelerator pump - working as intended?

    I was going through my carbs today, and while I only got one done so far, I noticed that my accelerator pump seemed to be working backwards.

    It seemed to be pulling air from the body of the carb it's mounted to, and pushing it into the other 2. Is this normal?

    I've got pics but they're not on imageshack yet.

    You may consider eliminating it all together then rejet and adding open f/a's. It would eliminate the dreaded 3/4 lean spot and increase throttle response a bit. Not to mention you wouldnt have to fart around with the airbox anymore.

    That's definately a possibility, but I'd like to get some ride time out of it this year and wrench it in the off season..

    Besides, I don't have the drill bits for a rejet..Nor the money for open flame arrestors at the moment.

    Nevermind, it's fine. It's pulling from the diaphragm like it's supposed to, I just confused the holes inside the carb.
