Honda Jet Cleaner tool or ????

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Anyone have the Honda Jet Cleaner tool?  They are proud of it!  07JPZ-001010B retails for $83.  I see some on eBay for around $70 and some cheap off brand on amazon for $8-$20.  Anyone have a set they recommend?

In my experience, if you are careful the same job can be accomplished with a welding tip cleaner.

 

I use a super cheap cleaner set from Forney.

You can do damage if not careful.

 

Honda one looks very similar to this...

... and that one is $6

Never heard of one. But I assume it’s similar to the tip cleaners for cutting torches..

I have a really old school brass two piece 6 inch long tube full of individual brass rods , it was my Grandfather's  set , I am not even sure if it is a jet cleaning kit , torch cleaning tip set or what , but it works great for carbs  , there are at least 100 pieces or more  in the tube , multiples of the same sizes and many sizes , I have never seen another set like it , he was an electrician when he retired , maybe something  electrical

torch tip cleaners are one of the worst tools you could ever poke through a jet on a carb !, why i say this ? : because a torch tip cleaner has barbs around and down the length of the wire, in other words, its like a small round file !, so you are pretty much making that jet hole larger when running it up and down the jet hole, but hey..what do i know ?!..lol.

Especially easy to mess up to a brass alloy with steel too, which most tip cleaners are.

 

As bad as some Forney products are, that is why I am using this set. It doesn't have those barbs.

most torch tip cleaners have the barbs, so most folks do not know better...but barbs and brass do not mix well !..lol.

i know i wouldn't use one, ...  i always see some filings (a very very small amount) after cleaning a torch tip, just have to know it's doing the same to the inside diameter of the jets ..

I grab a piece of braided wire, strip it back and grab how ever many strands I need. Speaker wire, works well.
