    They are brass which is soft. This is always the problem as sleds get older and the milage goes down.
    This is the single biggest improvement that can be made to restore milage to what it was like when the machine was new.
    Yamaha is starting to discontinue this part now on some models so get them while they last.

    My pleasure. Certain sizes for the early 700 red head are not available. Also note, in triples these are sometimes staggered like the main jets. Under no circumstances do I advise to go smaller than the stock setting. Don't ask me how I know,
