I helped a friend rejet his 2007 400ex the other day and after getting everything back together we noticed that we left a small plastic thing out of the bowl. I didnt really think it would effect anything so we decided to leave it out. But now he told me that it wont start.

Anybody with any experience know if it needs to go back in or if its another issue. He just put on a slip on HMF and K&N airfiler. He got jets from HMF. It had a 148 in it stock and we put in a 160.

The little plastic peice we left out is part #27. It says its a jet holder. I know we dont have them in our carbs.

The jet screws in just like ours do. The little plastic piece just fell out when we took the bowl off. I dont see how it could hold the jet.

It looks like it is an extension for the jet so that the jet will always in the fuel when the quad is bouncing around.It was probably on but got knocked off when you pulled the bowl down.
