Getting a Clutch Jet Out????

It seems like I have backed the clutch jet on my 2007 990 ADV at least a foot, but have been unable to get it out! What are the tricks for this? I am missing something! Thanks!

Donnie

Actually, a Q-Tip works great. It friction fits into the indentation on the top of the jet and you can pull the jet out with no issues.

Backside of a match, press it in the jet and pull it back out.

Vacuum cleaner and a piece of hose and, tape hose on nozzle or might work just with holding it in place and try to seal with your hand.

The Q-tip worked well for me, too

I use a drill bit, the non-drilling end (butt?) and a dab of sticky grease (wheel bearing)

I had a piece of small heat shrink tubing about 7 inches long.
Force all the air out of your lungs, stick the tubing down the hole and suck.
Took me two tries.
