I have just bought another engine for my 1982 xj650,it is supposed to be a 1980 engine but it has ycis on it,i am not sure what this means,will this be ok for my bike,thanks

Hi Dave...I think you mean YICS, which stands for Yamaha Induction Control System. Back in the day this was the latest & greatest in modern technology, this engines are considered classics now.
Yamaha introduced Yamaha Induction Control System in 1979 as a fuel-saving engine system in 4-stroke motors...It was ahead of it's time actually. These engines burn cleaner, get better mileage, and produce more power. It will work fine in your bike.

I hope this helps & good luck with your bike.

I have a problem with the idle speed when my 1982 XJ650 heats up. When I engage the clutch, the RPMs shoot up to about 3000-3500 and even higher. When the bike is cold, the idle is perfect. Once I ride...


Hope this doesn't reach you too late. These bikes take some time to fully warm up.

You can adjust the idle down by turning the knob between the #2 and #3 carburetors counterclockwise until you reach 1050rpm. Wear a glove or you will burn your hand!

Ride the bike some more, and see if the idle stabilizes. If not, you may have a vacuum leak somewhere.

A quick way to diagnose this is to take a propane torch (NOT LIT!) and run it around the carb boots and vacuum caps. If there is a change in rpm, then inspect the boots and caps for tightness and cracks.

1982 yamaha xj650 starting

Check the electrical switch in the clutch lever, most bikes have one as a safety, so you cant start it in gear, unless the clutch is in, could be a faulty switch, also do you have a switch on your side stand, sometimes these can be faulty as well.
