Powder bar issues

I've noticed lately the powder bar on my XL650 is slow to move and causing the fail safe rod to pop the square bushing out as it binds up and the bushing goes flying. This has resulted in the powder bar not moving on my next round and I had some squibs before because I let some slip. Is there a fix to this. I've already ordered replacement parts for the square bushing and the assembly that connects to the end of the fail safe rod. I haven't taken apart the powder bar yet to see if it's powder jamming it up but I didn't think it would cause it to bind up that much.

RE: Powder bar issues

This is a very good time to dump the powder, disassemble your measure, and clean it. Use alcohol. Petroleum based solvents can melt the plastic hopper.
