    Not sure if this is the place for parts but I've just rebuilt the carbies off a 3LN with the Lite Tek kit & I've broken the hollow bolt that holds down the jet block.
    I now know they are pretty fragile but too late.
    Can anyone sell me one?
    I was going to specialized wholesale to see if they have a bolt that I could drill out, the head is the problem but I could just shim it up with washers to get the depth.
    But that's all bodgey.
    She was going to be back on the road on the weekend but thats not looking good now.
    I'm in Newcastle.

    Well, got it back together & no better than before, I thought for sure I had found the issue in the carbs.
    Revs up low to about 7 - 8k nice & clean then just seems to be out of fuel, struggles to go any higher. The 2 large tubes with the plastic valves aren't connected to anything & wondering if they are the problem now & also the 2 thin tubes which should just be bowl overflow. The carbs are perfect so it's nothing in them. I thought I read someone saying they are vacuum tubes ?? She came like this & I can't find any diagrams to piece it back together.
    Fitted a fuel pump as well but that hasn't changed anything
    Help ?

    Thanks, I think I solved it.
    Out of pure frustration I refitted the air box & it was perfect.
    The ultimate test will be when she is ridden.
    Tank's at the sand blasters so until it returns & I get it painted It'll have to wait.
    I was thinking about running Uni pods & ditching the airbox but that seems to be out.

    I also have to so the fork seals, do the Zeals run the same forks? I have had some failures recently not using genuine parts/seals.

    Fork seals are based on diameter of the shaft.
