Find the guide plug.bn The guide plug is shown in the shop manual with the engine removed from the frame and the left crankcase cover removed. (You’ll find this illustration in the “ELECTRIC STARTER/STARTER CLUTCH” chapter in the “STARTER DRIVEN GEAR/STARTER CLUTCH REMOVAL” section.) It’s a little bit harder to find it on the bike. Start by following the yardstick to see where the guide plug is on my bike. To find it on your bike, lie on the ground (or, preferably a mechanics creeper) next to the bike (without the yardstick) and peek under the shift lever and over the frame There it is, just barely visible from the side of the bike. Here’s what a new one looks like: 2. Clean the guide plug and crankcase. From the front of the bike, clean the guide plug and crankcase with brake cleaner in a VERY focused spray. Let the cleaner evaporate before moving to the next step. Page 4 Rev: Draft 5/20/2007 Page 4 of 5 3. Reposition the guide plug. a. From the side of the bike, use the yardstick (or a long screwdriver if you prefer) to gently push the guide plug back into the crankcase. (Note the JB Weld from the previous patch operation.) b. From the front of the bike, gently push upward on the bottom of the upper tab (as shown below) or the bottom of the forward tab to rotate the guide plug into the proper position while maintaining pressure with the yardstick

Loop the hose around the bottom of the yardstick and secure it with wire or twist ties so that it runs straight up both sides; avoid pinching. Trim the ends to the same length, and cut an 8″ piece from each end. Suck ATF into the line so that it fills the tubing about 8″ high on each side. Splice the end pieces back on with the pilot jets. Remote Fuel Bottle. On OEM carbs with a central synchronizing screw,adjustment (see Section II.) is easiest with the tank removed. Make a remote tank from a 1 qt. plastic bottle. Install a 1/4″ hose barb in the bottom of the bottle and a lawn mower fuel valve in the line (an in-line filter is also a good idea). Attach a wire to the top of the bottle and hang it where you need it. Safety note: many plastics will break down with exposure to fuel. Be sure your material is fuel resistant, and empty the container immediately after use. This item is not strictly necessary. 5twins recommends rough adjustment with the tank removed, using fuel remaining in the float bowls, followed by fine adjustment with the tank in place, reaching in with a long screwdriver. You can also set the tank on a work bench or other elevated surface and run extensions to the carburetor lines. Compressor If you intend to do much mechanical work at all, an air compressor with sufficient capacity to power an impact wrench will pay for itself quickly. For carb cleaning, attach an air gun with a rubber tip.
