Mikuni TM40-6 question. SOLVED

PostAuthor: mr vroom » Tue Sep 11, 2018 3:38 pm

This carb has two air vents with black hoses attached. Not sure if those vents should be plugged or hoses run to a filter or what? Anyone know?

I bet Adam Smith knows the answer.

Thanks

These are two vents, they either have to vent to atmosphere or go to the airbox. The lines on there are so that dirt can't enter the carb via the vents (or at least not at such a fast rate!)
