The two main reasons for stripped carburetor body bolts is 1) over tightening and/or 2) allen bolts too short.
BRC has Allen Bolt Kits consisting of (89) bolts & (23) lock washers - broken down as follows:
(16) #18-8 S/S 6mm Socket Cap side & bottom bracket bolts
(16) #18-8 S/S 5mm...
Does anyone know a good (cheap) source for those pesky little plastic chrome plugs that hide the allen screws on the handlebars mounts and on the upper and lower triple-trees?
I need quite a few - they're missing from both the '86 and the '00..
So I was just cleaning off some bug guts and noticed someone threw in some random bolt on the front Yamaha plate. Anyone know where I can get a replacement? Thanks. Sorry for the pic size, I'm at work and there is no photoshop stuff.
I have stupid question. What's that allen head plug lookin' thingie right next to the sparkplug?
It can't be a head bolt or it would be in the top of the piston and it looks to close to the sparkplug for there to be any water jacket right there but maybe that's what it is????
