83 FT 500 Ascot Main Jet Carb Needle 24F
« on: February 28, 2014, 01:02:59 pm »
Hi All,

The needle for my main jet is bent and my thumper has lost it's thump.  I've tried everywhere that I know to find the needle with no luck.  The part number is 24F.  Sudco sent me to thumperguy.com who sent me here.  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Have you tried Mark at ThumperStuff: http://www.thumperstuff.com/FT500.html

I'm surprised that SUDCO wasn't able to help you.

Those are the only two sources that I can think of at this time. You might have to find another carb on eBay & steal the needle out of that.

Good luck
J.

Thanks guys.  Everyone has been surprised that Sudco can't help but they told me that it's Honda exclusive and they no longer allow Keihin to make them.  I also spoke with Mark at thumperguy.com and he's actually the one who sent me here.  I'll probably just have to replace the whole carb.  Thanks again for the feedback.

Might be worth the time to call K&L Supply to see if they can help you out.
