81 Yamaha XS 400 discussion forum: RE: Reving Problem
RE: Reving Problem
I had the same problem and after having the carbs off and apart and cleaning them with spray carb cleaner about ten times and looking for an air leak. I finally stripped all the plastic and rubber parts off the disassembled carbs I soaked the carbs in Gunk Carburator cleaner, the kind that comes in a one gallon tin paint can. I soaked them for 24 hours, rinsed them with water and blew them out with 100 psi air from an air line. The problem went completly away and has not returned in five years.
