i havent rode my poor miss's in almost a year now... i finally get around to changing some needed things and cleaning her up a bit... List of things i have done to get her ready for riding again: New rear fender New Vent Hoses Ditched the overflow bottle New clutch cable new throttle cable new grips new filters Fluid changes After i finish doing alll this nifty stuff this weekend i get her all put back together and find out that my fuel line is cracked.. no biggie hit up autozone for a 1/4" i.d. rubber hose... that didnt fit to well.. (thanks to the part lady at yamaha who verified it was 1/4"i.d.) after rubbing a little gas on the ends and letting it free up a bit it slipped on... but while i was wrestling with it somehow my petcock decided it was going to leak outta the valve itself.. yaay for me.. Also i get all the plastics put back on and my throttle cable wont budge... That was a my bad with the too much grip glue.. busted it free and all was good so i thought.. now the throttle is binding... i figured ehh ill take care of the binding tomorrow i just wanna hear her run... 3rd kick and she was purrin like a kitten so i thought. w/ the choke on she seemed to idle a little high and even was popping/missing couldnt quite tell in the garage since it was echoing in there pretty good... as soon as i took the choke off she died.. started it up again.. 1st kick.. i let it warm up w/ the choke on for a bit then turned the choke off again still wanted to die on me.. so trying to keep it running i noticed alot of spitting and sputtering and some backfireing... kinda like it was running outta fuel... so to make a long story short... I gotta take it allllll apart again and do it over and tear the carb apart this time around to make sure all the jets are clean and all that fun garbage... i was also thinking about re-jetting for my new elevation but i remember hearing that from 0-2500 feet shouldnt make that big of a diffrence... well vegas is right around that 2500 foot ballpark and am wondering if i should rejet... i also mainly ride dunes which is at sea level and im not too sure what elevation dumont dunes are but thats all i will be riding... sorry for the long post just had to get a little frustration off my chest.. and ask for some advice on &%$#@! i need to do to figure all this crap out again..
