    They are easily broken if you are not careful removing the float pin. There is a sticky in the tech section concerning float pin removal.

    I'm surprised it was running at all.



    The float posts are easily broken... Even by a halfway competent mechanic. Just yesterday I watched my pal Dan, who runs a small engine repair shop, break one off.



    For future reference, you can purchase a new carb from an online OEM parts vendor cheaper than from a Yamaha dealer.

    In the future, robots will make our meals and carb castings won't skimp on float posts. Or they'll be threaded studs.

    I've said the same thing myself! This forum has great members! There is a wealth of knowledge here on anything and everything from bone stock to the most radical modifications and the builders/riders share their knowledge quite freely!



    Welcome to your newest obsession and to the forum!
