    Default SX mountain vipe

    Finished the top end rebuild, got her all put back together. It went a lot better than I had hoped. Started it up and she purred like lioness. To some a rebuild is commonplace, but as it was my first time, it was a big deal for me. TY is a great site to use when you are second guessing yourself. The knowledge base he is incredible. Thanks in particular to: a couple of bucks, maim, murder yamaha, super1c, norwegian, and 03 viper guy. Sometimes it may have seemed like I wasn't listening, but, I was.

    Good deal.
    Have you done anything with the needles in the carbs to prevent another melt down ?

    Didn't have a melt down. Did it mostly for fun and experience. She had 8500 miles anyway, figured it was time. Here's the thing, when I tore it down the pistons looked more like 2000 miles than 8500. Gotta love these yamahas. I had already bought new pistons, so I put them in.
