100% possible. I too had one boot shimmy loose while riding, the tach started going nuts.
Maybe the system wasn't full?I got my new intake boots today and i see the marks ill make sure they are lined up properly. One more thing if anyone could help. I removed the thermostat housing today in preperarion to remove the carbs. While i was draining the coolant none came out of the bottom plug or the right hand rear cylinder plug i only got a small amount of coolant out of the left hand front cylinder plug and avout a third of a gallon or maybe a little more out of the radiator. I noticed a lot of rust. Should i be concerned about their only being coolant out of one of the engine plugs? I think i will gravity flush the engine with water that way i dont break anything by using a hose to flush it. Bike seemed last time i rode it to be cooling fine. Any help here would be appreciated. Also thanks to everyone for your advice i am new to bikes and learning a lit form you all
Ok thank you ill do that. I got the carbs off today and noticed an issue right away the front carb slide doesnt do the "woosh" like it should just falls down with no resistance or indication of vacuum, the rear does have the "woosh". Also the front leaked gas out of every hose including the hose that t's and runs to the right "ear" air filter housing. I will get them apart tomorrow but is their anything specific i should look for that could cause the excessive leaking? And im assuming the "woosh" problem is probably the diaphragm either ripped or not installed correct.
I am using a jis screw driver their just so stuck on they womt budge and its starting to strip. I have new hardware came in my all balls carb kits was just looking for a trick if anyone knew a way to free up the gasy glue thats holding them in. Guess its time for the dremil and a flat head since i dont have to reuse themDiaphragm parts maybe eBay or partzilla, as for the bowl screws definitely get yourself a JIS screwdriver. Great tool for working on Japanese vehicles. I have a vessel screwdriver that has a built in impact. Pretty nifty.
No, just make sure all the chunks are picked out of the carbs.Update got all tge screws out one with vice grips and the others using a dremil to make a slot then my impact. These carbs have little peices of the enrichment diaphram all over in here. Should i worry that chunls of rubber have gotten into the engine?
Ok i have the torn diaphram on the front carb its a big tear so i dunno if it is fixable. I was thinking maybe using a light tape and some spray rubber over it maybe that will work? I ordered new rubber diaphragms just in case i cant fix it anyone know of a link on how to switch out just the rubber?
