Air Jets? Starter Jet?

PostAuthor: Den. » Wed May 30, 2018 1:24 pm

I have both the Yamaha service manual and the Clymer manual. I'm looking at these two pictures and I see reference to a couple of jets that I don't recognize. The first picture is from the Yamaha manual. The PILOT MAIN JET and the AIR MAIN JET appear to be located inside the VACUUM PISTON (slide). My carbs simply have drilled holes drilled through the slide there. Are those jets hidden somewhere else? Next, the table in the Clymer manual's photo references a STARTER JET and size. Where might this be located in the carb?

If memory serves, those are both fixed and cannot be changed out on the Hitachis.

You're correct. If the jet isn't listed on JetsRUs, it isn't available.
