One step forward two steps backwards

One of the pilot jets is stuck fast in the carb, i cleaned it in the ultrasonic bath anyway, stuck it in the freezer, but no luck

NRP do pilot jets for around 5

Before dissasembly i noticed the choke on each carb was very stiff

On reassembly i cant find a spring, i cant remember if it was ever there, i normally assemble these parts dry, but im going to use the smallest amount of light oil on choke piston.

Have a found another complete set of carbs and a complete set of front calipers, master cylinder with braided hoses, a week of negotiation ahead

If i can get these parts together in the next week that would be great, after that we are on holiday in France for three weeks, so no progress on bike

Cheers
