I love my luck!
Now the Yamaha 1200 XLT seems to have messed up carbs!
I took it out today and it bogs when I accelerate past 3000 rpms and dies!

Anyone here competent with carburators? Seems like no one on the Yami side has anything to say.....
Would a regular car mechanic be able to rebuild the carbs? Are the carbs different than car ones?

RIVA is charging me $350 to do the rebuild, that seems to be an awesome price to me.....Is it?

Carbs are very easy to pull off and pull apart. I pull my 2 carbs off my snowmobile every year and clean them out.
Do it yourself.
Just have a clean workspace, put paper towels down.
When you get to your adjustment screws, record how many turns it takes to fully screw them all the way in and then remove them. Then reverse upon installing them back.
Pull everything apart, take carb cleaner and spray down everything, then take compressed air and blow each part off, pay special attention to the main and pilot jets. Make sure there is nothing clogging them up!
Have a buddy help you with the first one and you can easily do it yourself from then on...........
