    About to get these carbs done (If you’re scoping out my old Ricky Carmichael rc bike it’s not for sale 👌)

    81 XS650 running but have issues

    So tried the gasket seal and it helped seal the intakes up good. Still having same issue though. Tried to fine tune where i sprayed when looking for a leak. It seems the choke area was sucking in air bad. Also noticed on a side note my fuel T was very cracked. So long story short i ordered...

    I put everything back together. Still sucking air on that gasket area left side. I’m going to just put a little Yamabond on the other side and seal this bitch up on just the left side. My luck i have some sort of hair line crack i can’t find and this won’t work but i have extra gaskets so who...

    81 XS650 running but have issues

    So i noticed on the left side intake (problem area) on e of the bolts wasn’t tightening up and stripped out. Not sure if that had anything to do with my problem but may have. Had to put in a heli coil and seems good now. Gotta wait a little while then tighten them again, throw the carbs on and...

    81 XS650 running but have issues

    I have two new sets of the thick gaskets. I tried one set already and it was leaking still as shown in video. I did read a previous post somewhere else that 5twins talked about tightening the carb holders and letting them sit a day then going back and tightening again before installing carbs. I...

    Ok tossed it 👍🏼. You do the Yamabond smeared both sides of the gasket lightly? Also how is that stuff for removal later. I was trying to avoid the seals cause of the pain in the ass clean up every time but at this point i need it to seal

    81 XS650 running but have issues

    So i checked the matting surface and it’s flat, looks perfect from what i can tell. Really searched for any cracks and can’t find one. I might have to put a straw on the spray so i can pinpoint the leak spot better. Just weird that it’s the same leak with two different carb holders. I’ll keep...

    81 XS650 running but have issues

    So i tried switching the carb holder on the left side with my old one. Still have same issue. I dont see any cracks anywhere on motor or carb. For some reason it won’t seal up to the motor or i have a leak somewhere in the same area i can’t see. Not really sure what to do. Thought about maybe...

    Yeah it is set up well as far as jetting and everything else. It’s just not rideable at the moment, the air leak causes such a issue at bottom i can’t ride it without basically stalling it out. If i just sit and rev it i can get past it and rev it out but it’s to big of an issue. I’ll let you...

    Ok cool, that’s good to know. I think it would run fine with them too if i can fix this air leak. I probably should stop ordering stuff for this bike at some point anyways haha

    The butterfly shaft seals are new. I’m going to look for that brand for the holders. I feel pretty good about getting this last piece hopefully fixed. Seems like that vacuum barb shouldn’t have just pulled out like that it must have been sucking in air pretty good. I could kill the engine with...

    81 XS650 running but have issues

    So after replacing coil and ignition i was still having issues. I think i nailed it down to a leak at the intake boot. Mainly the left side. Before i wasn’t using the intake gasket i was just using rtv instead. So i put in two new gaskets from mikes. Still seems to leak, and i also had one of...

    81 XS650 running but have issues

    Ok so just in update. mikes sent me a new electronic ignition. Installed that. Cleaned carbs again. Worked great in the driveway. Too for a ride. Bike got hot and stopped running. It will idle barley but as soon as you give it any gas it’s very sporadic and all over the place and will die...
