Default Carb Rebuild question

2000 Honda Foreman 450 S

I am putting the carb back to together and can't remember if this is the needle jet or not. Please look at the pictures and tell me what this is.

That goes in before the main jet and it's holder. The beveled end will go towards the needle (top) side. The throttle plunger needle slides into it to control the amount of fuel mixture during throttle operation.

By beveled you mean the side with the smaller hole, correct?

The end in your second picture will go in first and that is what the needle on the throttle seats to.

When I screw back in the throttle screw how do I know how far to screw it back it. I am talking about the screw with the black plastic on the end and a spring on it.

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.

^In the service manual it says to use compressed air.
