Dump the old gas and clean the tank, pull the bowl off the carb
, remove and soak the Main
, Starter, and Pilot
jet in something strong, like a good carb cleaner or lacquer thinner(if they need it), and blast out the passages under the jets with some carb cleaner that has the tube.
There is no carb kit. Simply becareful taking the carb apart, and don't damage or lose the two O-rings on the flange of the bowl. You will use them over if their fine.
When removing the carb, leave all the tails attached. Should be four of them if you leave the carb heater wires attached to the carb. There will be an enricher/choke(left side of bike under the fuel pump). A idle adjustment knob( black knob, right side of bike below the Airbox). The TPS
wire(disconnect it up by the frame) The carb heater wires(disconnect them at the frame, or unplug them from the bottom of the carb.
There is a small black plastic filter that comes off the top of the carb at an angle, and points down. It's on the top left side of the carb when looking at the front of the carb. It looks like it needs a hose...it doesn't. Check, and make sure that wasp, spiders, or something else hasn't clogged that up(there is a screen inside of it). Its the vent for the diaphragm in the top half of the carb.
If you take the black hat off the top of the carb(held on by two screws), be careful not to tear the diaphragm. You might want to do this, so that when your cleaning the carb with the carb cleaner, it doesn't get in here and mess up this diaphragm.
Some carb cleaners have an adverse reaction with rubber gaskets etc. DON'T submerse the carb in carb cleaner. Just blast out the jets.
Check the white cover on the side of the carb, to be sure its not cracked. Thats the coasting enricher. If it's cracked, you'll need to replace it. It can cause a vacuum leak otherwise.
Change the fluids, put a new filter in the airbox...either stock, or the K&N YA-1699, and put in new plugs(don't forget a little anti seize on the threads)auotzone sells a small package of antiseize, and dielectric grease together in the same package. The anti seize is for the plugs, and the dielectric grease, can be used in your electrical connecters to keep corrosion and moisture out.
I would guess, that after you clean and replace the tank, and clean the carb, it'll probably start.
I second the Clymers. The pictures and directions, are worth every penny of the 30 or so dollars you'll spend at Amazon for a new one.
Go to the top of the page here, and click on "Tech Articles" there is a multitude of things there from removing the tank, to rejetting the carb etc, that will give you ideas of whats inside the carb.
The good news is, for just the basics to get the bike running, the tools needed, are just a few. Get a good set of metric allen wrenches with the ball tips, and a set of metric sockets, and a couple of phillps screw drivers.
Congratulations on your purchase, and..
