I posted about a new carb to replace my original 1998 WR carb about two weeks ago. The opinion was to get a 2005 or up used YZ carb. 


Got one on eBay. A 2006, with the hot start cable, got new throttle cables also. I removed the float bowl and it looked good inside. The gas smelled fresh.


What would you all recommend doing to the carb before I install it?


I am thinking take it apart, clean it , check passages, new pilot jet & gaskets. Anything else?


From reading about older carb problems, a bunch of you have gone the eBay used carb replacement route, any major problems?


Thanks, Dan

That depends on how many times you want to take the carb on and off, until you get it clean, jetted, and fully functioning.



Only once ???

I put an 09 YZ carb on my WR, got if from another TTer.  I cleaned it and put my jetting kit in it and it started in 2 kicks.
