I'm guessing that your garage (pictured, as I recall, in another thread) now has more motorcycles than the entire remaining population of Welches. Congratulations on the new project.

well started going thru it a bit this morning... carbs are going to need to be pulled and gone thru (kinda expected that) they are getting no flow at all so probably have stuck floats. and has no spark so guessing the coils are shot ..... good compression tho. 145ish on the left and 140ish on the right

well decided to tear into the yami a bit today seeing as its my day off and nice out... have to say the air box was one of the easiest ive had to remove. two bolts and a clam was all that held it in and bam they were off the carbs started to tear into and as usual they were loads of fun to remove. once removed the bowls didnt look bad jets looked fine , removed the floats and valve (wasnt getting fuel when i removed the bowl plugs and OMG there was so much crap in there... had to separate the carb to clean it all out and the T peace that was fully plug full of crap.... now i bet fuel will flow fine.. now the only issue im still having is no spark
