I can use any help available. I have not rode in 20 years and decided to get a triumph Thunderbird for a learner on eBay. it had a miss in number 1 and would not pull rpms. ended up changing plugs and putting dielectric grease on all connections,tore carbs apart and cleaned,anyway there are three which look like jets that must have blown out when using compressed air that do not seem to fit anywhere,other than the holes in the throat for the choke. I thought they might be for the mixture needles since it is bare aluminum with a counter bore ,but they do not fit. The carbs are a MIKUNI BST 36mm flat slide cv. Here are two pics. Also the exploded views I have brought up do not show these. Added a couple more pictures,they look like they would fit in the inner bore

thanks again

Sorry, wanagro; those pictures will not show up on MO without a little help from the Administration - the picture-upload-function is brokeden.....

Upload them to photobucket/vimeo/whatever, and link to them here if you would like us to see them.

Wanagro, if you plan on wrenching on that bike, get yourself a Haynes manual, or pony up the big money for the Factory manual.

In the meantime, go to BikeBandit and look for the exploded parts diagram of the carbs. They may or may not have such. If not, I'm sure there are diagrams of the Mikuni's somewhere.

BTW, welcome to the site!
