Hey I'm new to 4 strokes and bought a 07 450 3 weeks ago and still haven't ridden it. I've been busy and wanted to regrease and go over the thing.

While tearing it apart and trying to take the carb out I see two cables going to it..what's up with that? Any trick getting them out...and same question with the hot start cable?

I notice ZipTy has a carb mod for 125 bucks, anyone try it? Was it worth it?

the 2 cables are probably the throttle cable and the pumper cable

the zip ty kit is probably the ais removal, throttle stop and a fuel screw

but this just an assumption

Two cables activites a push and pull system that is common on most bigger four stroke models. Get the GYTR kit from Yamaha and a JD Kit if you desire.

Many people on the YZ forum rave about the ZipTY carb mod they may actully help you with your jetting at the same time. Do your free mods first.

Yeah , I'm doing the free mods too. Just asking about the other stuff. No wonder the 4 str weigh more with all the extra gizmo's on em. I want the carb completely done with jetting and whatever other mods needed. I don't want to touch it for a while..it's a pain :)
