    carborators

    i have a yamaha xlt 1200 that is boging bad has new fuel filter & plugs, did a cylinder test kill number one is dead good spark, 100psi comp. on all three, @5.9.1 so i am going to rebuild the carbs , any body ever done these before, they are very hard to get to under the exhaust, also i checked the cat. looks ok but will be installing d-plate & chip any help would be appreciated.

    Check the how to section osidebill has lots of good threads on the carbs. And once you get the exhaust off that side they aren't too bad.

    Excellent info here: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=70129
    and another thread (don't get confused): http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=185410

    Don't try to rebuild the carbs inside the hull. You need to remove the exhaust and de-install the carb assembly so you have plenty of room
    on a clean workbench to do the rebuilds and test/set pop-off pressure.

    I would pay someone to do it, better to be safe than sorry, expecially with carbs

    The links provided in post #3 go directly to Osidebill's write up on carbs, the second link describes carb rebuilds, rejetting & testing.
