Clip and washer position on needle??

Question, Aprilia Mojito 150
The needle has 3 groves in it, does anyone know from first hand experience the position of the plastic washer...does it go below the c clip or above it ?
I had a very rich idle , pulled the needle and saw the clip in the bottom slot, I raised it but like a dope was not paying attention to the plastic washer position..

I would look on AF1 website. They may have parts diagram you need. Also consider other Aprilia models with same engine and check their parts diagram.

The plastic washer sits in between the clip and the bottom of the slide. It sits between the two to act as a bushing, so the hard steel clip doesn't wear out the softer alloy on the inside of the slide bucket/tube when the needle moves up and down and around.

PS: some of the plastic washers have a little "tit'" that fits into a small hole/recess in the bottom of the slide. If the washer has this little "button" ensure that it sits flat before putting the needle in, otherwise the needle will get a lot of side-loading and wear out within a month.
