hows it going everyone new forum member here. i have been riding for 2 years now my first bike was a 04 sv650 till it got totaled in a accident last year. now i just bought a 83 yamaha xj 750 maxim after selling a 91 honda ns50 for 1k $. been having some issues with the carbs the prevous owner was verry dumb and tried to adjust the idle mix screws and drove them all the way in till the tip got stuck in pilot hole and stripted the heads. so now i have the carbs sitting on a friends bench getting drilled out retapted and making new needles with a CNC lathe.:coffeescreen: we both did a couple sample needles today and cant wait for the finished product. been almost contimplating on building a small repair kit with custom made needles for people who have the same issue because you cant just go to the dealer anymore for a new carb.
