    I'm a dumbass.

    while taking out my carb to remove the engine, I broke off the fuel intake nipple, (plastic, press fit)

    Any suggestions on a repair?

    Can the left in the carb broken part be removed?

    If so there maybe a replacement.

    Usually it is the plastic choke housing at the carb, which get snapped.

    Been there/done that...........the breather tube at the top of the carb is a different color, but is the same fitting as the fuel inlet plastic tube on the KLR. Thus, you can switch them out (while you order a new one) and get the bike running.

    Really? Good to know. :thumb

    I've broken one too. It's easy to swap in a replacement. Couple screws holding it in place.

    When you order a new one order 2 - usefull to have a spare! Broke one before a ride and fabricated one out of copper tubing that lasted the trip.- with a few leaks

    I just did the exact same thing on my bike, I'm not sure that will fit on a carb after 2010. I talked with eaglemike via email today and he's going to buy a few and do some test. He said he would let me know so I will pass it along. On a 2009 and before (gen2) the throttle cable bracket holds the elbows in place if I view the diagram correctly. You can see what id did here. Fast forward to the 10 min mark or so to see how the old one has to be taken out.
