    Manifold Cover Screws

    Hey guys, I was wondering if you could tell me the OEM Yamaha part number on the screws that hold the intake manifold covers on? I need to sync my carbs and two of the scews are on so tight I am going to ruin them to get them off and I'd like to have some new ones on hand. Thanks fellas

    Intake Manifold bolt question.

    Had to take the intake manifold off to replace the rubber boots that connect them. As some of you may know there is two different bolt sizes that attach the manifolds to the engine. Well, pretty sure the guy that owned the bike before me botched the bolt placement. (only had one short bolt out...

    How To: V-Boost Intake Manifold Assembly Remove/Install

    As part of my crankcase breather housing job, I had to remove the carburetors and V-Boost intake manifold assembly (VIMA). I found what I needed as far as removing the carb rack on the forum, but as far as I could tell, the forum lacked a How-To for removing the VIMA. So here goes: First...

    Manifold rubbers replacement

    I got a set from PinWall Cycle Parts a month ago. They did look pretty good at first, better than the current ones. After mounting them I noticed an issue while synchronizing and setting up the carbs. After removing the carbs I noticed they were now cracked. So back to the old one which I...

    4 barrel manifold setup

    Anyone have input on this set up? Having a round air cleaner between your knees would look good imo.

    Oil in vboost manifold bolt holes.

    Is it normal for oil to come out of the vboost manifold bolt holes? I had the max on the center stand and replaced the rubber boots on the vboost. When I took the vboost manifolds off, oil oozed out of the outer bolt holes on the left front cylynder and the right rear cylinder. I saw what...

    Replacing Rubber manifold joints on carbs and V-boost

    Over time the rubber tubes that hold the carbs and V-boost together and form part of the inlet manifolds age, crack and leak air. Yamaha originals are expensive but there does not seem to be anything remarkable about this tubing. No special fittings or fixtures With the variety of after-market...

    As I am about to attach the intake manifold I have noticed two of the holes in the engine are weeping oil, front left and rear right. Are these the only two holes I need to seal up or do I need to do all six?
