Question about 1973 Yamaha DT 360

Rebuild vs replace fuel **** assembly

I have a 1973 Yamaha AT3 with 125cc engine. The fuel **** assembly is leaking, and my spouse is arguing for replacement over rebuilding. it seems that the rebuilding kit costs about the same as a replacement assembly. Wouldn't it be better to replace the gaskets and keep the original parts in service? What would be the benefits of either side of the argument?

If it is the old style fuelcock there is a four hole washer that needed replacement on a yearly basis way back then (poor quality rubber).Just buy the washer that should be all you need unless there is other damage. than replace the assembly. With the age of the machine your only option may be to replace the worn washer as the new assembly is probably no longer available.

How to adjust carb on 1973 dt 80 cc


Hi, Cori if you have changed your fuel delivery system, air filter size or flow rate, mufflers or exhaust system or a significant change in altitude your carburetors need re-tuning and if your fuel system (gas tank, filters, fuel valve and carburetor) is contaminated with ethanol sludge, varnish, rust, dirt, water etc. or your bike has been sitting for months or years without running these components must be "PROPERLY" cleaned and reassembled "CORRECTLY" before any adjustments can be made. Tuning your carburetor is fairly simple once you understand the basic principals. You engine is a simple airbox sucking air in and blowing it out, it is finely tuned at the factory for maximum performance once you upset that delicate balance by changing air filters, camshafts or exhaust systems your performance may go down the and the engine may run poorly, you need to compensate the air-fuel mixture in the carburetor in order for the engine to run smoothly and at peak performance. If you are running multi carburetors you need to sync them first and make sure your air cleaner element is clean and dry for paper elements or lightly oiled for foam and meshed elements and properly installed. Here is how and where you compensate trouble: "TIP" if your engine "BOGS" your not getting enough fuel.
1. Closed to 1/8 throttle is managed by the air screw and pilot/slow jet.
2. 1/8 to 1/4 throttle is managed by the air-screw, pilot/slow jet, and throttle slide.
3. 1/4 to 1/2 throttle is managed by the throttle slide and jet needle.
4. 1/2 to 3/4 throttle is managed by the jet needle, needle jet, main jet, and air jet.
5. 3/4 to wide open throttle is managed by the main jet and air jet.
6. Wide open throttle is managed by the main jet.
If you are running lean, spark plug electrode color is white, engine runs hot and feels like it is starving for fuel you need to go up on the jet size or move the c-clip down one notch. If you are running rich, spark plug color is black or dark gray, engine runs cool, and bogs down when accelerating you need to go down on jet size or move the c-clip up one notch. When your carburetor is properly tuned for maximum performance your spark plug electrode will be a light tan color like coffee with cream. If you prefer fuel economy over performance you can go down on main jet sizes until a satisfactory level of lower performance is acceptable versus MPH, your spark plug color will be whiter and your engine will run warmer. These tuning adjustments will only make improvements if your intake and exhaust system have no air leaks or sealing issues and the entire electrical system is in proper working order and you have no mechanical issues.

I have a 1973 rt 360 it starts fine and then runs wide open


Sounds like a fuel regulation problem. If a carburator is involved check it for the float valve being stuck. If fuel injected, check the pressure regulator. Also check for possible air leaks in tubes leading to the engine...an air leak will cause abrupt revving.

I have a 1973 Yamaha tx650 that I turned into a bobber. Straight pipes off the engine. When I ride it, the engine begins to lose power and bogs down, and back fires around 60 mph... even with the throttle...


with black plugs it might be that there is no back pressure because of the cut off pipes. It also could be valve guides leaking oil into the cylinders.It is most likely that the carbs are not tuned to the opened exhaust

1973 Yamaha RD 250 - The engine RPM's are revvving out of control. Even when I turn the key to the off posistion it takes a while to shut down. The throttle cable seems to be in good working order.


Remove the cylinder heads and de-carbon the heads and top of the pistons. Hot spots of heated carbon buildup are igniting the fuel after the key is off. Install new spark plugs > NGK B8HS. This will fix the continued running problem.

The out of control revs is an air leak problem. Un-carbureted air is making the fuel/air mixure lean. The hose clamp at the front of the carbs may be loose and/or the gaskets from the reeds to the cylinder are no longer keeping a good seal. The carb joints and reed gaskets should be replaced. The gaskets are cheap. The carb joints are expensive. Considering this, you may want to put some gasket sealer on the carb joint mating surfaces and see if they will seal up okay. If the carb joints are cracked, you pretty much have to replace them. Please rate my answer, thanks.
