    Hey guys... I've searched everywhere and can't find a stock needle for my blasters carburator..

    The one I bought has come with the Vito's blue needle, looks like it has been in there a while and I've heard they are sh*tty

    I need a rebuild kit while I'm at it for the gaskets but somehow I doubt they come with the correct needle for my carb.

    Any help?? It's not on jets r us either

    How does it run with that needle ?

    I use the Vito's needle on a ported engine, Vito's reeds, Fat Bastard pipe and it works fine for me.
    IIRC , the needle is slightly shorter than stock, making it a bit richer in mid-range just before it's on the main jet. So actually it's on the main jet sooner for the same amount of slide opening.

    I was thinking the same thing. I don't care for those kits, call CPW and get only what you need, you don't need another stock main jet. Plus I wonder about the quality of the rubber parts.

    also they changed the needle in 03-06 models
    and probably stopped making that
    5J22-2 jet needle and replaced it with
    5JFJ34-3.
    It is written in the service manuals
    and the part numbers are different when you look at
    let's say 2002 blaster carb parts
    then 2003 blaster carb parts.
    i also have heard toomey mention it on there web site.
    and i have read simular things on here as well.
    one example http://www.blasterforum.com/threads/toomey-b1-exhaust-kit.46842/

    Hey thanks for all the help/replies! My blaster is a 2002, runs fine with the Vito's needle but was also running fine with multiple air leaks and a 340 main jet

    I'm not running it anymore until I get it fixed up with new seals and what not but I figured might as well get the stock needle back in there since I've never heard anything good about vitos needle.

    So speedyslyder it seems like Rocky mountain has it as #28 like you mentioned...good find. So either one of those needles would be considered stock/are interchangeable?
