1984 Yamaha XT600 Carburetor Overhaul Part 2

August 01, 2015 admin 8 comments

Last post on the Carburetor overhaul for this Yamaha XT600 finished with dis-assembly underway.

If we were to summarise carburetor overhauling it would be;

  • Remove carburetor(s) from chassis
  • Disassemble
  • Clean
  • Inspect
  • Fit overhaul kit
  • Reassemble
  • Tune
  • Re-install in chassis
  • Balance

This sounds complex but is well within the scope of most committed home mechanics.

With dis-assembly of the carburetor main body completed we will commence the cleaning process and then move on to inspection.

Here are the Carb body and main components in the ultrasonic cleaner prior to the clean cycle.

 

Ultra Bath 

 

After about 5 minutes the cleaning solution is already quite cloudy, all that crud came from the carburetors...

 

Dirty Water 

 

And here is the cleaned carburetor body. Seriously, how good does this look? 30 years old...

 

 

Below are all the cleaned parts ready for inspection & assembly. We prefer this channeled plastic as it holds the smaller parts.

A T-shirt on a wooden bench works well too. A steel bench top means you have to be pretty careful with these softer alloys and small parts.

 

 

This is why a good overhaul kit is required before the rebuild...Gaskets, fibre or rubber, work harden and perish.

Notice how flattened the old rubber gasket was. Even if it wasn't broken this couldn't be reused.

 

The rubber grease isn't just to aid the seal, it also assists in positioning and retaining the gasket during reassembly.

Treat yourself to a tube. You will wonder how you ever got by without some...

 

The cleaning process isn't complete until you have blown out all the passages and orifices with compressed air. Jets and emulsion tubes too.

 

 

Inspect your components carefully after cleaning and before reassembly. 

In this case the slide and needle are in great nick for a 30 year old. A worn slide or bent or worn needle will make the carb almost impossible to tune.

Note we have the needle height here set to stock. This bike has stock air filter, muffler, jetting, and lives at sea level. Stock needle height required.

 

 

 

Look at the pilot jet, this has copped some heavy handed use around the blade driver slot. Brass is softer than steel so the right size blade is a good idea.

Note also the stock jetting stamp. Always worth checking, you just never know what the last guy did...

 

 

 

That is it for this post, the rebuild, tune and reinstall will be covered in the next post.

Good read, I'm in the process of rebuilding mij SRX carb (same as the XT). When will you continue this blog?
Oh and how did you remove the brass seat of the air cut off valve from the body? I got a new one in the rebuild kit, but I can't work out how to remove it without damaging the housing?

"Hi Aivar,
Sorry to bother you, I'm just wondering if you can make it so that when you click on a traffic stream, the first page of the stream is used by default, not the second. I found that whenever I click on a thread I have to scroll down, click on the last page number and wait for it to load. I think it would be wise to just put it in the last post by default. I hope there is a pin-up https://pin-up-az.com somewhere in the server panel that you can simply change.
Anyway, just an idea. I'm not sure if you can do this."

In January-March 2021, Russians have already made more than 2.6 million trips abroad, including tourist, business and private flights. The figure is not as impressive as it might seem at first glance if you compare it with the data for the same period in 2020 and 2019. The total outbound flow over the past year decreased by 64.8%, and compared to the first quarter of 2019 - by 68.2%. Taking into account all the purposes of the visit, the TOP-10 foreign destinations among Russians in the first months of 2021 looks like this: Abkhazia, Turkey, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, [url=https://pin-up.org.kz/] pin up kz [/url] , Finland, Tanzania, South Ossetia, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia. From the end of May, in addition to opening borders with five countries, the number of regular flights to South Korea, Finland and Japan will also increase from Russia, so the geographical picture of tourist traffic for the second quarter of 2021 promises to be completely different.
