Well finally success. I took the old main jet and filed it slightly larger with a torch tip cleaner set like metioned before. by restro and bigfish. Runs awesome with no choke anymore!

Restro Thank you for all your help!.....hope i didn't drive you nuts! LOL

Land rus. im 40 min from GWB.

Tiger. I was running with an air filter but no pre filter. Run fine with slight choke or if i squeezed the rubber boot to restrict airflow very slightly. Unit sat for years and bought at estate sale not running. I just got it going again don't know history except 160 hours on machine

We don't know all the facts. We don't know if he bought an oem carb or aftermarket. If it was an aftermarket then I can imagine it not being quite perfect. As far as carbs go though your right. You do what you gotta do. I have never had to modify an oem carb on a honda engine just saying.

The facts we do know is most aftermarket carbs are built to OEM specs, Both JRS's old and new carbs had a #95 main jet, There's a very slim chance a brand new carb will have a dirty restricted port/passageway, All engine manufacturers are REQUIRED to lean engines out to pass emissions regulations......

I had four (4) brand new carbs that caused a surge on two (2) brand new out the box 8000 watt gen sets, Someone down the pike got the jet ports too small causing a lean run surge from the factory. I likely could have ordered a whole case of carbs and still ended with the same results (surge), The ONLY fix was to drill the jets to the next size.

After the above ordeal, I have no issues with drill'n a jet out if all else fails...... And on a brand new machine, I'll drill first before ordering another new carb.......
