Well thats an oddball.  I looked up the carb and its not called out.  Sometimes there is a clip that holds in the fuel line (steel part) into the carb. It looks like a fork but i can't be sure.  Have you removed the screw to see what it possibly does or is?

That's the thing. I did remove that screw while in the process of cleaning the Carburetor and I went to reinstall it and now notice that the hole is larger than the screw thread and it is not threaded. There must be something that it screwed into inside the casing of the carburetor that has dropped out of site. It really has me puzzeled? It does not run correct with the hole being open however if i plug it it seems to run fine.......?

Could have been a vacuum port?  For now i would put a dab of silicone over the hole and let it sit over night to properly dry. At least you can ride.  In the meantime you can research what it passably could be for. Maybe even take a ride out to your local Suzuki dealer and ask one of the mechanics or have them bring up a more detailed blow up of the carburetor.   I will keep looking as well to see what i can find.

      Disconnected the plow yesterday on my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660 and am getting ready to do some riding yesterday and the battery went weak, Starter cranked a few times but week. Put my trickle charger on that I bought and went to the garage today to start it up, but the starter is just spinning and not engaging. The solenoid is clicking. The pull start sucks and is hard to pull (never use it and need to look into that). Quick video of the starter spinning. Could it be the starter or  the starter clutch one-way bearing? I guess I need to take the cover off to see what's going on.

      Anyone know what the fuse terminal marked UNSWITCH  does  .  Even with the key off it is causing a drain on my battery and I'm trying to figure out  what that terminal goes to.  It's a 10 amp fuse. If I pull it the "short" goes away.  Thanks in advance.

      I have had a 2002 Suzuki King Quad 500 for almost a year. This is a question I’ve posted before, but likely missed the answer due to being new to the site. Here’s the issue. When in 4 wheel drive, especially in low range, especially when pulling a load downhill, I hear a lot of clanking in the front end. As if the front drive shaft was binding then unbinding. A friend who had a 1987 Dodge 4x4, told me all the noise his front end made when in 4 wheel drive was entirely normal. So, is this something I should worry about? I have all the bodywork and tank off right now doing a valve adjustment and carb rebuild. If I gotta do something, I’d like to do it now. Lastly, I’d love to find a carb tuning guide for this era of Mikuni. Haven’t tracked one down yet. Any thoughts of where to find one? Great forum. Have really enjoyed it so far.
