Question about 1981 Yamaha XJ 650
The bike has been sitting for a couple of years so I was going to clean the carbs and tank, but I dont know for sure how to set them again once I take them apart. I also want to run the valves but don't know what the air gap is for them. Need help please.
Around that year , yamaha used small disks(no screw adjustment) for valve adjustments, so you measured the free play and bought new ones according to the gap.best set up is just a few 0.001" of an inch at tdc
