I do not know about the Bendix.

I have an adjustable main jet kit for a Keihin butterfly-style carb. I believe that it has a standard 180 main jet, and has a mechanism to adjust the fuel flow down from that.

So it may be that yours just takes the largest jet available.

Might be more useful info here ...

Was it the bolt that broke? The bolt that holds on the float bowl screws into what I call the 'main jet body' in this pic..........

Is the bolt broken off in this piece?

If not, then tell us which piece broke...........

I know you used to be able to get the jets on their own through the dealerships.
I would be surprised if you can get them like that now.

I would start by calling:

and see what they can tell you.
