Question about 2000 Yamaha YZF-R1
I have a 2000 r1. I was just curious if anyone knew how to put in a jet kit and air filter. I could reply with the kind of kit and filter. Im new to working on bikes myself and new to this site but hopefully ill stay. Thank you for your time -Jason
Lo Jason. No direct experience on 2000 R1, only later ones but this is what i know.
Prepare a nice, clean area first for stripping carbs down and 4 different containers for each individual carbs components.
Switch fuel-tap to OFF.
You'll need to remove the rider's seat, undo the front tank mounting bolt then prop the tank up (it pivots on the rear-bolt). Hopefully youll then have enough room to split then remove the airbox. If not you'll have to disconnect fuel pipes, overflow pipes and any electrical connections and remove the tank complete (having removed the rear pivot-bolt)
Disconnect the throttle cables at the throttle-grip end, remove the choke-cable from the carbs, loosen the inlet-clamps (between carbs and head), take the fuel-pipe that feeds the carbs off at the pump end. Remove the whole bank of carbs, may take a bit of rocking back and forth (the carbs, not you).
Trying to keep the carbs roughly in the same plane as they were on the bike undo (one at a time) the drain screws at the bottom of the float-bowls to drain each carb (catch the petrol in a dish/jar etc).
You'll now need to remove each float-bowl to get at the jets and most likely the carb-tops to lift out the diaphragm/slide/jet-needle assemblies.
Best leave it there, sorry it's a bit sketchy but you're best investing in a Haynes/Clymer/Yamaha manual to get specifics 'cos you'll need specs to set/check settings on the carbs aside from the info in the jet-kit.
Hope that gives an idea of what's involved.
