    Mikuni Carb clear diaphrams

    Is there a proper side to install the round clear diaphrams? I hate to damage the rubber plugs should I have to pull out and reinstall. Thanks !

    Thereís a special tool to do it. I usually use lots of lube and press with my thumb. Iíve heard of people using Allen keys with the ball end too

    Use some waxed dental floss.
    Wrap it around the grommet then pull the dental floss thru the hole.
    You will wonder why you struggled before.

    There is a specific side the ring is installed? Will it run if mounted on wrong side?

    The Check Valve Discs are cut from a plastic sheet that comes in rolls.

    Therefore, the Discs will have a slight curl.

    The "curl" side must face towards the plate so it can lay flat and seal properly.

    If you install the Disc the other way, they will leak because they won't lay flat and seal properly.
