  1. I stumbled upon what I think is wrong with my bike.. I took the airbox off my 85VR brownie and my left rear carb slider isn't moving like the rest. It is motionless. I checked the diaphragm out. Does this mean my float is stuck?
  2. Hi all, anyone know how to fix this short of buyin a new slider? Thanks,
  3. I bought this 84 venture and was looking at the carbs and noticed one of the slider springs is completely gone. where can i get one and how much are they?
  4. Not being the kinda' guy that likes to do things the easy way,But always looking to save a few bucks I purchased a set of Carb. Diaphragms off of Ebay a while back. ($86.00 with shipping) I thought I would give you a run down on how that went. After removing the False Tank cover and both side covers as well as the lower fairing legs on both sides I was able to get to all 4 Carbs. easily. To remove the Carb. covers I used 3 tools, a 1/4 inch drive ratchet with a special Torx bit on it for the 4 odd screws, an impact driver with a Phillips bit in it and finally a pair of Vise Grips for 2 of those Phillips head screws that just wouldn't come out. I took out the Torx head screws first on all 4 carbs. because when you remove the last Phillips head screw, you better have your catcher's mit on, that Carb. cover is coming off...FAST! I had set up 4 shop towels on my bench and kept all of the Carb. parts separated. I held each slider assembly up to a good light to inspect them and sure enough all 4 diaphragms had holes in them. I removed the old Carb. diaphragms by gripping the slider and "rolling" the old diaphragm out from between the two flanges on the slider. Two of the old diaphragms came off in pretty bad shape. I then cleaned all of the reusable parts with Carb. cleaner , but I must say that overall everything looked pretty clean. All 4 of the sliders were nice and smooth as were the Carb. bodies on the engine. I used a clean cloth and Carb. cleaner to clean out the Carb. body bores. (I don't use paper towels for this as I would not want a shard of paper ending up in the intake or the Carb. body) With everything clean I moved on to the reassembly. The Ebay diaphragms were not made of the same material as the stock Yamaha ones, but were very pliable, and had the tab for alignment in the Carb. body. After lubing the diaphragm with aerosol spray silicone I inserted the slider into the bore of the diaphragm. When I got to the flange, I stretched the diaphragm bore over the bottom flange. Now the spacing on the two flanges of the slider seemed a bit "slim" and I panicked for a moment but realized that by using my thumb nail I could wedge the diaphragm bore between the two flanges with no problem. When all was said and done you couldn't tell that the diaphragms and the sliders were not mated at the factory. I had the slider needles out for another project I will discuss later and at this point I reinstalled them. I put the slider assemblies back in the Carb. bodies aligning the tabs, put the caps on with the Stainless Steel Allen Head Cap Screw set I have listed in the classifieds and reinstalled all of the body parts and that as they say was that! Oh yea, I accidentally spilled some paint on the Carb. caps...Oops! I have attached some pics below and am willing to chat with anyone that is interested in this rebuild. Feel free to PM me. Sorry this got a bit "windy" Earl
  5. Did an interview with CBC Ottawa last week Friday and it aired yesterday at 6 pm, in the News at Six segment. Thought I would post this as some of you would be interested. The item starts about 3\4 way through the mp3 file, so just move the slider until you find it. http://podcast.cbc.ca/w6_20090714_2100.mp3 You can also join our group on FaceBook: Save the Country Butchers
  6. I finally got around to checking carbs on my latest 83 XVZ12. All carbs would sync except one. Thought maybe the diaphram was bad but it was fine. The slider had many cracks in it and had appeared to be glue togather. Does anybody have a set of junk carbs laying around with a good slider I can buy. If not, any idea where to get something like that?
  7. O.K., I've heard back from CarbKit Capital regarding the 1st gen. slider kits, here is their response: "For stock at the moment we have: 20-6026 - Approx 18 20-6032 - Approx 30 It does not change the price. The best I can do is $60.00 each. Please gather some figures and then get back to me so that I can see how many people would actually be purchasing for the price quoted." So, we need to know if there are enough people looking for the slider kits to make it worth their while to give us this price. The 1983-1985 models require part # 20-6032, and the 1986-1993 models require part # 20-6026. Please respond here and advise home many individual units ( one diaphragm with slider ) you would want for that price, and if so, which part # you need.

  9. What are the symptoms of carbs with the slider springs (under the cap on the top of the carb, pushes the needle down) too soft? Does it cause any adverse running problems? Thanks in advance.
