  1. Hello , nice bike . Im thinking the bendix you have is not an adjustable main jet . What you thought was adjustable main jet is actually the idle tube .An adjustable main jet sticks up about 1/2 an inch and has a spring similar to front screw which is the idle mixture needle . You can buy a kit to convert it but mostly 40mm carbs were adjustable main jets . I think its good that your son is interested in Harleys .
