Genuine Yamaha parts for the carb can be expensive and not all parts are needed for a rebuild.

The minimum you should consider if the carb doesn't appear to have been apart for a while are a carb float bowl gasket and the two small O rings by the diaphragm.

If you are lucky your diaphragm will be in good shape with no holes and enough of a lip to give a good seal. You can check if its working OK by twisting the throttle and checking a jet of fuel is fired into the carb inlet through the small brass tube that points to the slide.

What other parts do you suspect need replacing?

Brian

No such luck, unfortunately, Brian. I've already checked the diaphragm and it's not sealing and neither are the two little o rings. So I will see how much the kit is and decide my best option from there.

There is also scoring on what I think you call the slide??

I doubt this carby has ever been serviced.

Also the choke slider is slightly bent and I have already found some serious gunk in the diaphragm

Also the choke slider is slightly bent and I have already found some serious gunk in the diaphragm by housing etc. To warrant a complete services / rebuild.

WP_20151221_014.jpgOk. Well. Umm, I got a quote from my lovely local Yamaha.

The quote comes to a grand total of $248.05AUD (including $25.51 for an oil filter). Can anyone recommend a better option than those thieves? Minimum I need is float chamber gasket, diaphragm and the two o rings. Can anyone help?

I'd be suprised if Brian wasn't cheaper for some/all of that - even with UK postage.

Or boats.net - were about 1/3rd of my Aussie Yamaha dealer - even with crazy US postage rates

I thought something dodgy was going on lol. Cool I'll have a look. What's the approximate turn around on getting a couple of carby parts to land here? I'll keep in mind that it took the first fleet 5 months to get here.

We normally send out the same day that we receive payment as we carry everything in stock.

Royal Mail say 5-7 working days - see here

I can't guarantee what the Australian Post Office can achieve but experience of other Australian customers is that they can get our delivery more quickly than from other parts of Australia biggrin

Thanks for the info, Brian, much appreciated. I'll probably get the couple of parts that I need urgently from Yamaha only because I can get them overnight to me in Far North Queensland, and I haven't ridden in months and months and I am kinda desperate to ride straight away. That being said I am pretty sure, actually definitely sure, that I will need some more parts which means I will be able to get them though you.
