Vent Tube Nozzle

Does anyone have a pic of what this thing looks like. Its a tube that is placed in the carb that helps prevent the zuke from bogging down or hitting a flat spot during acceleration. I would like to try and make one rather than paying the $20 (Canadian).

Re: Vent Tube Nozzle

I don't have a picture, but I do have a new one that was never used. I ordered it to put in a remanufactured stock carb I bought and it already had one installed so I don't currently need it. Costed me about $11(American).

Re: Vent Tube Nozzle

I am interested. Do you live in Canada or the U.S.? If you live in the U.S. you can send it to me and I will send you the money when I get it. Unfortunately there is no other way of doing it beause there are no C.O.D.'s across borders. If you agree to do it this way tell me your price. If you have a better way of making the transaction mail me directly at; [email protected]

Take care....

Re: Vent Tube Nozzle

Everytime I see someone wanting to spend money on this miricle "Vent tube " fix, I've got to put in my 2 cents. If you have ever rebuilt this carb, you would realize that this vent tube is just that, a BOWL VENT TUBE! It is a pollution control part. The vacumn supply for the secondaries is on the opposite side of the cab and the orifices are directly under the roll pin on the little bars that hold your venturi's in. A carb cutaway pic will prove this. This tube was created as a fix to pull all vapor from the rather large bowl vent passage. It is a placebo, and it upsets me that the good ZUKI people of the world are getting bilked for $20 a shot for a $1 part that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the secondaries. If anyone resonds back to this saying opinions to the contrary, please tell me (if you think it works) exacty how a bowl vent would help hesitation, especially since this vent is closed off by the bowl vent solonoid after start-up! Thanks for listening to me rant.

Re: Vent Tube Nozzle

The vent tube is a Suzuki factory part that does clear up the hesitation and flat spot prevalent in so many vehicles. It does work. It is designed to reduce the air turbulence as it is drawn into the carb. It has nothing to do with emissions. For those who have had the carb problem and installed this tube successfully (of which we have hundreds of customers to prove this), they too would dispute your statements.

If you can find tha part for a buck, I'd gladly let you buy a couple hundred for us and mark it up 100% for you to make some free money while saving us a bundle buying them from Suzuki.... because I guarantee its substantially more expensive to order them from Suzuki. For reference sake, they run $11.97 (not $20).
