    What carb kits do you recommend?

    I need to rebuild the carbs on my 97 1100 Wave Venture and 99 GP1200. Is there a particular kit or retailer I should look for? Prices seem to vary greatly from what I've found so far. Thanks.

    I like Atlantic Jet Sports as mentioned above. However make sure you are only getting the genuine Mikuni rebuild kits. It's not worth it to get the aftermarket WSM ones and risk your carburetor and potentially engine. They are more expensive ($42 I believe), but the POM is worth it.

    I have attached a Mikuni Carb manual for your reference.

    Thanks Adam, that's a very helpful guide, I really appreciate it. I have a manual but this one looks like it's more detailed. After reading a few posts down I'm now concerned about a stuck piston so now I need to check the compression on the 1100. The symptoms were similar, except for the starting problem.

    Your compression should be around 110 PSI for all three cylinders with no more than 10% deviance in PSI between the cylinders.

    If you need the factory Yamaha manual for the Waveraider please email me your address and I can send it to you (the manual is over the 5mb forum restrictions).
