I have the new bit and a pencil size holder, in theory cleaning the pilot jet on a 930 sounds easy but it isnt.
Because the bit is short I can clamp the very end so the remaining length just reaches the jet meaning the operation is done by feel which I dont have much success.
I'm asking the guys out there who do this regular as I'm sure you wouldnt be spending the same time I have (and failed), on customer bikes.
I need pics of tools made or bought to hold the drill bit and still be able to see in there?

here is a pic of the tool we sell to clean out the pilot jet, you need it to be this long to get back into the jet, it's almost 1 1/2" back there...

Tony, Jack, thanks for the backup fellas, the shop sold me a #78 bit because it's .016".
I didn't know that so it was worth a lot mate, I asked him for a 78 thou bit!
Should be able to turn the screw out a few now, it's all the way in to get an idle.

Any of you done the mod suggested on a bunch of websites? I'm referring to the deal where you drill and tap the other side of the pilot jet, then use a cut off mixture screw as a plug. The only purpose is easy access for cleaning! Not sure what it would take as far as tools though......

I was going to, but thought it would be just as tough to reach around the other carb to get at the new access point?

I've been using a single strand from some small wire I had around.

Far out! I realized I have all this info and more in a booklet I bought off Panic at Victory Libraby. I knew I had read somewhere(or dreamed it) about removing the original pilot jet and replacing it with a threaded mikuni jet for tuning using different sizes. Easy to clean too!
