When changing to aftermarket pipes on a carburated bike I would recommend have the carbs rejetted, the after market pipes will change the fuel mixture and could cause the bike to run a little funny.

Hi I have an '81 yamaha virago 750,I don't know how to adjust the carbs,it getting too much gas and I was told I needed to close the gas off and open the air.....????

Below is a diagram. Turn the air screw inward until it lightly seats then open it up two turns. Set the idle speed with the throttle screw. The throttle screw pushes against a lever on the outside of the carb. From there, adjust the air screw for best idle speed. Do this for both carbs. Be sure the air cleaner is clean.

Motorcycle set in storage for three years. Today
this site has exploded view diagrams and part names of all sections of the bike.
this site has various Yamaha manuals for free download.

Your throttle cable is likely to be rusted. It can be saved with a liberal spray of WD-40 into the cable shroud and left to run down the cable inner. You have to remove this cable and hang up from one end.
Fuel residue is likely to interfere with the smooth operation of the carburettors. Remove the fuel line from tank, and remove drain plugs from carby's. Spray continously some Carburetor Cleaner (avail. all auto accessory stores) down the fuel hose till it comes out the base of carby's. Allow to evaporate and repeat. A full tank cleaning fluid is also available from most auto shops. Thoroughly check all rubber components, wheels and brakes before getting back on the road. Cheers

Fuel runs out the the right vent tube and breather hole when the engine is running. Disconnect the vac line from fuel tank and no leak. Is the vac fuel pump overpresuring the system? 1982 Suzuki GS750

Most likely the diaphragm in the fuel tap has a hole in it .The way your fuel system works is that, when the bike cranks and starts it generates a vacuum in the inlet manifold, a pipe from the manifold goes to the fuel tap. The vacuum in the pipe pulls the diaphragm in the tap away from the holes in the tap ,letting fuel flow past the diaphragm and down into your carburetors ( gravity fed).
If there is a hole in the diaphragm the vacuum will **** fuel through the diaphragm and down the vacuum pipe flooding that cylinder and starving the others.
I hope this helps.

sounds like the floats are stuck. cleaning carbs should do the trick. its a good practice to start up motorcycles and let them warm up from time to time while being stored.

Probabilly a stuk carburettor float or needle.
Try to solve this problem to gently tap on the carburettor bodies. If this doesn't help you have to clean out the carburettors, and/or replace the float neeldes
