Need Thunderbird Keihin Jet Holder or Emulsion Tube?

Hi folks,
I have a new-to-me 2002 Thunderbird with Keihin Carbs. The bike sat for along time, so I disassembled and cleaned the carbs. Some parts were damaged/stripped and not re-useable. I've found almost everything needed on schematics at Hermy's Triumph or from Sprint manufacturing. But I cannot find the needle jet holder or what you might call the main jet holder. The main jet screws into this piece and it is also threaded to screw in the carb, and abuts the needle jet collar. Some may call it an emulsion tube, it has small holes in the body. In the attached photo it's labeled the "holder".

If anyone has one (or more), or has actually purchased one that fits, just let me know. I expect it's a Keihin part made just for Triumph, and that a Suzuki or Kawasaki might work, but an exact fit would be ideal.

Thanks,
Craig in DE

Interesting that the part is not shown. What is wrong with yours? Unless it's physically damaged, a good ultrasonic cleaning should make it good as new.

At the risk of stating the obvious, any replacement has to duplicate the size, number and placement of the air bleed holes. I don't remember if there's a number stamped on the part or not.

Thanks BRG and just let me know.

I have read on the forum that perhaps Suzuki part number 13331-26e00 will fit. But this tube will have a different arrangement of air holes.

If anyone can confirm it works, please do post.

Thanks,
Craig

If you can't match up a part number then I'd look for a carb feeding a cylinder of about the same displacement, RPM range and power output.

I do have a set. Also here is a set of carbs that appear to have very similar if not the same emulsion tubes.
