carb air cut-off valve (TRX 350)

Out of curiosity, what is the function of the air cut-off valve? Am trying to remove the needle holder from the vacuum piston with no luck, Any hints? With a phillips I can turn the holder but can't get it to budge.


Thanks.

The air cut off valve cuts air off when decelerating quickly, making the fuel mixture richer, to eliminate back firing.

I had the carburator apart to replace the choke cable and I believe I left an o-ring off of the air cut off which probably explains the backfiring. Thanks for your info.
