I went to the Honda dealer today and picked up a carb rebuild kit for my 04 Foreman 450ES, only to get home and discover he sold me a kit for 98-03. Looking at all the parts in the bag, and parts from my carb, they were different. The kit was a Moose kit, as the dealer told me it's super expensive to purchase all the little parts (individually, I might add) from Honda. Advantage: Carb is soaking in cleaner, so it should be all unstopped by morning.
My question: can I used compressed air to blow it out, or do you suggest using canned air? Had a Kawasaki and rebuilt the carb and was cautioned to use canned air and not compressed air to keep from blowing through passages that were milled pretty thin.
Comments and/or suggestions.
