Xv700 vaccuum assembly

PostAuthor: TSAnderson » Sat May 04, 2019 8:35 am

Hey all, I have a new to me xv700 that purchased as a project bike. Bike currently is not running, but I know the engine is good as I saw it running 2 years ago before the owner passed.

I've since pulled all the major components off, but I am at a loss for the left side vaccuum assembly. Whoever messed with the Bike before me, removed the whole thing. There are no hoses anywhere. Woukd anyone be able to take a detailed photo of their vac assembly and where the hoses go to? Even a photo of the carb assembly would be great. Someone messed with the hoses and I'm beside myself.

I've looked everywhere but cant find a detailed photo of this. Thanks in advance!

This should give you an idea of where things go. https://www.partzilla.com/catalog/yamah ... ir-cleaner https://www.partzilla.com/catalog/yamah ... -49-states
If item 15 has been removed, then item 20 has one port going to the petcock and to one of the carb holder vacuum ports adn the other port on item 20 will be capped.

The only vacuum line you really need is from carb holder to petcock, that is of course if the vacuum petcock wasn’t switched out for a manual one. If the latter is the case, you won’t need any vacuum lines.

As far as the apparatus on the left side, if it’s been removed, it will not affect the way your bike runs, some say it runs better without. All it is, is an emissions control of sorts.

You can follow this to make sure everything is capped off properly http://viragotechforum.com/viewtopic.ph ... 8ae33ff866 .

The only difference is the 1000/1100 have an additional vacuum line to the pressure sensor and the 700/750 doesn’t have a pressure sensor.

Here is the vacuum diagram for the 700/750

Thanks guys.

Basically what I have is item 15 removed. The hoses from item 15 that would run to the elbow are removed and only the top niple is capped, the other is open. I have one gas line running directly from the petcock, it splits into 2, and one line goes to each carb. Does that sound right?

Thanks so much.

Kinda...as Jake said: since you have the MCV removed, you have to rearrange things so "both" nipples on the front manifold should be capped and the rear nipple (manifold) will have to be connected to the petcock, so the petcock will pass the fuel to the carbs. Meaning: each of the manifold nipples will either be capped or have a vacuum hose attached. "Nothing should be left open".

Thanks for your help, still a little confused though.

To clarify, items #1 and #2 both need to be capped, and item #3 needs to be capped. Is this correct?

You can see that I have one fuel line (yellow) running from the petcock, which splits into two, and goes to each carb.

Is this correct?

*I put the numbers in photos for easy reference.

Thanks for your help.

Two of the three need capped (doesn't matter which two). The third one, in this case the one you have marked as number "2", needs a line that runs to the petcock. That is a vacuum line that will automatically stop the flow of fuel when the engine is stopped and open when the engine is started.

That part is correct.

I would take the cap from 3 and use that port for the carb vacuum line.

Cap 1 and 2.
Use 3 to petcock, simply because it's on the left side.

Awesome! Thank you.

Currently the petcock only has one line running from it, the yellow gas line.

As Jake pointed out, you need a vacuum line to the petcock as it is vacuum operated. All other vacuum ports on both carb holders should be plugged. Nothing left open..
