Worst case is you buy a new plunger assembly for $44.00 and stick it in yourself. It is not hard and will not affect other carb settings. Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx I checked and Babbit's has plungers in stock. By looking at the diagram you can see how it all goes together. Is your plunger just loose? See if you can snug it up a bit so it doesn't leak. Now it didn't cost any cash at all!

I don't get paid for my answers but I do take pride in them, and I am only trying to help. So if you will, > > A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!
