I need a new carb for the old 89, so figured I could upgrade. Ive heard so many problems with the tk carbs
The yamaha tech down the rd. Said Get a mikuni if I can find one
I did just find a Pretty good deal on a oem tk for $260.00 new.
Also when I buy a new carb...will it come with new drain hoses?
Would you know what size drain hoses I would need to purchase if I bought the oem tk carb
Mine are all brittle
Thanks

New TKs come with all the hoses you will need and some here have found them a bit cheaper, $240 + S&H I think someone posted. I bought 2 of them for my bikes at the $260 and it was the best money I spent so far. Drops right in and runs fine but remove the plug over the pilot adjustment before you install it and set the screw at 2 full turns out. Go from there once the bike is warmed up for fine tuning.

Going to a different carb sounds good but can get expensive real fast and you will still have the same problems. It is the BS E-10 fuel we are forced to use causing 90% of our carb and tank problems. Pure gas, Burn it if you can get it.

Gary if I get the oem carb, is it also a TK?

Also what does 2 full turns out do? So you mean put that screw at 2 full turns out before putting carb on bike?

Thanks

Yes, you get the exact same carb as you have now, old style TK. When the carb arrives you remove the brass plug on the bottom that is covering the pilot screw. Then you turn the pilot screw all the way in until it bottoms out.no need to be tight, just till it hits bottom. Then you turn it back out two full revolutions or four half turns going by the position of the slot. It is much easier to do with the carb in your hands and this gives you a good starting point once you mount the carb.

You can buy the $26 BW200 carb on eBay and others claim they work but are you mechanically proficient enough to overcome the modifications necessary? I am also sure there are other carbs out there that can be made to work but again, these are not for the novice who just wants to get his bike running. Unless you are very competent around tools and technical skills I highly recommend you just buy a new OEM stock Carb. You might also check the boot from the carb to the air box. These are known to get very hard and shrink making it very difficult to get a solid seal around the carb throat.

To the best of my knowledge the CA bikes have an evaporator canister mounted on the front frame down tube just above the header pipe. Not 100% sure about 1989 but they do now. Others will chime in with positive info.

I have the $26 carb on my 87 and it continues to be really nice. In fact, I was asked to go rescue a couple of hikers in the woods the other day and the TW was the best choice for riding someone double out through muddy trails and fire roads. I could have chosen my wife's 2000 TW, but it has a stock carb and would need to sit there and warm up for 5 min before I could ride it. I just threw a leg over the 87 and rode off, instantly. Started it with about 25% choke and turned it off in a minute on the road. Got to the hikers, who were out of water and food, a couple of miles out in the woods, near dark. One of them could barely stand up. Got her on the back and rode back. Went back to fetch the other one. Left tire spin marks where I turned, so the second hiker could find my tracks if he got that far. Trail had several goodly sized mud holes, and I plowed straight through them, double. The bike with the $26 carb performed flawlessly. I'm fairly well fed, and so was one of the hikers, so I proved the viability of the bike and carb pretty well, that day.

Great story!

Sounds like you need to get another $26.00 carb for your wife's bike :D.
