Good to know. I don't think I've ever seen my bike above 190

O-Ring Part List

Hi everyone:

Now that I have finished my carb rebuild, I thought I would post a list of the O-Rings that I used. Hopefully, the McMaster-Carr O-Rings will last as long as the OEM O-Rings.

If I had purchased all of the o-rings from my Yamaha parts dealer, I would have spent $141.36*. Float bowel o-rings ($29.36) are not included since McMaster-Carr does NOT have them. The rest of the o-rings ($40.10 + $7.69 shipping = $47.79) I purchased from McMaster-Carr. So, the savings was $93.57.

A few important notes:

1. Others have posted purchasing their o-rings from sellers on ebay. I didn't include ebay purchases, because I was able to get all the o-rings I needed from my Yamaha parts dealer and McMaster-Carr.

2. *Yamaha doesn't list the o-ring for the part 5LV-1410F-00-00 (#71).

3. *Yamaha doesn't list two (2) of the o-rings for sale individually. They come with the Needle Valve Set (4KM-14107-15-00, #18) and the Pilot Screw Set (5MP-14105-00-00 #8). So, if you need the complete "Set", then you don't need to purchase the o-ring separately. My needle valve and pilot screw parts were good, I just needed the o-rings.

4. All of the McMaster-Carr minimum pack quantity exceeded my needs. They ranged from 25 to 100 o-rings per pack. Yes, I have a lot of o-rings left over.

5. I also used Super Lube 93003 O-Ring Silicone Grease on all the o-rings https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1. When I asked for suggestions in an earlier post, I had gotten some ranging from using spit to o-ring lube, so I went with the lube.

As always, I am a newbie at this, so please use the information at your own risk. If you find an error or have additional information, please post it.

Here are the two (2) links in the attachment:

Let me know if you have any questions that I can help answer.

LIFE IS GREAT WITH A RUNNING FZ1!!!

A big thank you to all that helped me through the process of rebuilding my carbs. It was warm and dry enough today to take a ride. I had forgotten how much fun my 2002 FZ1 is to ride. Yes, the 2005 R1 was fun on the track, but not so much on the road. The 2007 Hayabusa is fun on the road, but it weights so much more than the FZ1, it just can't compare in cornering.

My 2002 FZ1 is a joy to ride!!!

Next on the list, before spring ends, is front forks. I am looking forward to lots of miles of fun!

Eric

Great job. Glad you got your bowels cleaned out ... ;)









Sorry, couldn't resist it.

Splitting carbs is a really tricky challenge, I applaud your success!

Falcon:

Thanks for the response. Now that I have completely rebuilt the carbs, including splitting them, I am not sure what the big deal is about. Did I just get lucky or is splitting carbs really not the big deal I see posted?

What in your opinion is the "tricky challenge" part?

1. Was it getting the synchronization springs back in?
2. Finding the correct size O-Rings?
3. Cleaning all the orifices?
4. Remembering where all the parts go?

Maybe some people could post what they found a challenge in splitting the carbs. I personally thought a basic carb rebuild with jet sizes, setting float heights and setting the mixture screws was scarier than splitting the carbs.

I look forward to hearing some experiences and opinions.

Thanks,
Eric
