carbs

So I got the carbs to a buddy who going threw them, he recomends the dynojet kit and air filters
http://www.dynojet.com/pdf/4302.pdf
and the k&n kit
http://www.knfilters.com/search/prod...x?prod=rc-1824

Its going to be around 3 to 4 bills for the parts just to change the intake to open ellement don't get me wrong I have to mess with everything more power but a gain of 5 to 7 hp and I need to change out brand new mufflers ( 457 miles on them rember) no stage one or two kits out there to keep the pipes. Do I then take the head off port the snot out of it and put better cam in it also where do I stop ?

Get the carbs back from this guy as he';s no buddy if thats the advice he's giving you. DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE.Theres nothing wrong with the exhaust or the porting in the head and the standard jets for the carbs can be purchased if needed. Let the airbox on the bike it works better than individual filters as this is no race bike.Your going to turn a nice project into a nightmare.

I'll second that! Get it running and then consider modifications. The stock jetting is lean, but should work fine for now. It is more important to get the carbs clean. And that is a treat to accomplish. And I'd suggest a mild acid like vinegar, lemon juice, or a household shower cleaner and hours in an ultrasonic cleaner. Then probe all passages with a fine wire and clean again. Pinesol is very nasty to the zinc alloy of these carb bodies, don't use it!

got the ultra sonic soaked them in there with dawn dish soap for 3 days already only thing I got out the carbs was scum lol cleaned the tank and will pick up carbs tonight, he is a good buddy he and I both like to mess with stuff to go faster with what I can find as with him is a stage 3 kit they recomend porting or new high flow mufflers ect. ect. I'm not crazy about putting 5 to 7 hundred in to this total with gaskets and pipes, but I need a air box or to repair mine as the mice (only sopt I found on whole bike) chewed a dime sized hole in the bottom on the dirty side of filter so resin it up and clean the carbs again and again till it runs?

All you need to do is post a question or two and you'll get replies. The site trends more toward the 650/750/900's but there are plenty of knowledgable people who have the 700 (which isn't that different from the others). Orange-n-Black is particularly familiar with your model year http://xjbikes.com/Forums/viewtopic/...maxim+700.html

A huge +1 on that advice. Yamaha went all-out when they developed that engine series. There's not much to gain from messing with it, and a lot to lose.

Untrasonic cleaning won't reach the passages very well at all. Read up and do it the only way that really works. http://xjbikes.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=14692.html It may look intimidating, but if you take your time and do one carb at a time you'll be very pleased with the results.
