What methods did you try to get it out?

I was using a screwdriver that was too small but then I was able to get it out easily with a 3/8 drive socket that came with my home Depot tool set. It's labelled FD4 and had just the right depth to reach it. The bike ran a little better after that but still on choke only so I'll replace those insulator o rings next. The old ones were flat for sure. I did spray a little wd 40 around them when I was testing and I thought the rpm went up a tiny bit but maybe just wishful thinking on that. Larry's carb book should be on the way.

It's running again after low emulsion tube cleaning. I wouldn't have figured that out without help. Now for front brake, clutch, tires, brake hose, and some other stuff :).

Thanks all

The CX Standard is a bit more nimble than the rest of the series, too, with the possible exception of the Eurosport.
