    '73 H1-D kawa carb. starter jet size?

    Carbs are Mikuni VM28SC ; they were so clogged up with crap,I resorted to using a small drill bit to clear the bowl-to-starter plunger fuel galley,they blow freely now but I've sadly found out there was a jet in that passage that's most likely oversize now. What I want to do is make brass plugs (yeah, I did all three before realizing my mistake) with the proper sized jet hole & press or thread them into the fuel inlet holes for the starter circuit visible from the float side in the bottom of the float bowl. Can anybody tell me what the diameter of the starter jet is for this carb?

    vm28s would not be the stock size for an H1D (I think those are 26mm carbs stock). Sudco can sell you any jet you need but since you are in custom territory it is hard to say what the stock size was.

    No . 28's were used '69-'76 , Sudco doesn't list or show starter jets. I've got this question in a few forums, but nobody seems to have the time to measure one.
