      Any local yamaha dealer will be able to order them and likely have them in stock. They usually have boxes and boxes of jets for various carbs

      I tried. Nothing local, and even when i call dynojet which makes jets for r1, they only have the slightly larger set rated for stock engine with only exhaust.

      I'm going to take the car to a shop that specializes in carbs, so they will take care of it.

      well if it comes down to it, drilling them is super easy with a drillpress, especially one with a vice.

      Hell for less than the cost of a jet kit I bought my drillpress and vice off craigslist.

      Know nothing about those other carbs, man. Hell, I don't even know much about my R1 carbs!

      When you say they have a "pump," I'm assuming an accelerator pump, like a Holley or a Weber. I think the R1 style carbs just use vacuum to increase fuel flow.

      That'd be great, if only where I live had knowledgeable carb specialists. So no, there aren't. Also, the guy with these carbs is not near me (In Mexico City, Mexico), he's in the country of Guatemala, so I'd like to be able to help him as best to my ability.

      Guesswork was what I did when I installed my R1 carbs, thanks to the knowledge of some awesome dudes on here, which gave me the guts to do the mod myself, instead of handing the job to someone else. I'm not saying it's not good, it's just different.

      Anyways, I'll contnue to look for answers.

      Yes! That accelerator pump thingy, whatever that's called. Having a bit of idea on how to adjust it would be awesome...

      I haven't played with them too much, but here's a video I found on the basics of the Holley Carb's accelerator pump. IT should at least give you a better understanding of it works than I can!

      Screens. Then a nice paper filter such as k&n or a good foam filter for decent flow but best protection.

      that would be nice but how easy is to find it, because i can easily buy k&n cone filters, but they are $$$$$.

      Here is what I did for my "filter" Took half of the R1 intake and mated up with half of an aircooled fuel injected airbox and doubled up some window screen as the filters. Works great and almost looks like it could be a factory item.

      On a side note:
      Are any of you monkeys going to be making it to SOWO next weekend?? It would be interesting to get as many R1 carb setups together.

      The set I have seem fine. But I can respect you wanting a known brand for something like an air filter. I dont even run filters. They hit my hood

      Mine fit no problem with filters, I just don't buy anything on eBay unless It's a known and respected brand. EBay sells lots of crappy products, and I learned that many years ago.

      people run no filters all the time with webers, I dont see why cheaping out on ebay filters for the street is a problem. I run no filters unless its raining on my webers.

      good luck with re-building your engine. im going to be racing the car, so there will be a need for filters.


      So i was checking my timing, got the car warmed up and it cycled the radiator fans 2 times. The only time I saw the timing mark was when the dial on the gun was past 60. Where should the timing be set at?

      people run open webers ALL the time up at the track. Every car ive seen at the vintage races with webers didnt have any filter on it. Id say 80% of people on here with webers run no filters also so I guess they all will be rebuilding their engine too? just sayin, don't knock something till you actually know
