Carb Rebuild Kit - What is this part??

PostAuthor: pagordon1 » Wed Nov 06, 2019 2:45 pm

Hey Everyone,

This is probably a dumb question with a very obvious answer, but I'm new to this so cut me some slack. I am working on rebuilding my carbs with a kit and there is one part in the kit that I cannot find on the diagram, nor is it explained by the parts list for the kit. The item in question kind of looks like a watch battery. Small, silver, and polished on one side with a slight taper on the bottom. Can anyone explain what this is and where is goes??

Thanks,

PG

:VTF:
Most likely it's the anti-tamper plug for the pilot screw boss. No need to use it. Kits will have "one" for each carb.

A little FYI.....just incase. Your 1100 still used HSC40 Hitachi carbs, before Virago 1100 switched to using the Mikuni carbs (1988). Not the best pic, but it'll give ya an better idea. If you look at the #1 carb in diagram (carb on the right as you're sitting in the saddle/front cylinder side), the disc/plug/cover is #34.
