I think he means the emails that you get if you're subscribed to this thread. I tried explaining how to unsubscribe to it so he wont get any more emails.

05 Rx1 Flooding out and hydro locking!!!

Thank you for taking your time to help me out. i have a 2005 rx1 that is flooding out so bad its hydro locking, i took the carbs out and replaced the little oring on the bottom of the main jet on all carbs. they where shot and cleaned the carbs and checked my needle valves put it all back together and its still flooding out, i have no fuel coming out of my over flow lines so i don't believe the needle valves are my issue? i had at least a quart of gas in my oil from it flooding. it seems that fuel is entering the cylinders even when it is not running. note that it was flooding before and after i cleaned the carbs. :thumbsdown:

i have found that most times you have fuel passing through the carbs into the cylinders its usually related to the needles and seats. your sled having four carbs makes it a bit more difficult to pinpoint as all it takes is one and the fuel is flowing. simply by the design of the carbs, overflows are a bit different than most.

i have seen the carb vents get plugged on those as well as the breather hose for the crankcase and either could create a vacuum.

if your up to removing the rack again, theres a quick test you can do to verify the needles are sealing at the seats. all you need is a clean piece of fuel line. a mighty vac tool saves a nasty taste in the mouth but not required. drain all the fuel from the carb bowls and attach the extra hose to the fitting where the fuel line would go. turn the carbs upside down and suck on the hose. try and hold vacuum with the tip of your tounge. if you get air, the needles arent sealing. you will have to test both sides as there should be two fuel supply lines. would have to see a picture or have a sled in front of me as i dont recall how the pairs share the fuel line.

beyond that, one of your fuel pumps may be bad or even the pulse line, or stuck floats. fuel pump failure would be rare.

So I finally got to take the phazer for a ride today now I have some problems I could use some help with. I had these same problems last year but forgot about them until now
1. My brake caliper can't be tightened all the way down because it locks the track up like I'm pulling the brakes. I think I remember you saying something about an auto adjuster but I don't remember.

2. Once the sled is warmed up if you pull the brake and come to a stop it will bog the motor until it dies. Also if you stop like that but let go of the break before it dies the sled will creep forward at idle all by itself. I'm guessing this has to do with clutches but I was hoping you'd have a better idea

If it's creeping, your primary probably needs a good ol' cleaning......... By that I mean, it needs to be torn completely down....

I agree with phaze. Sounds like your clutch is hanging up. Clean it and make sure your pins and rollers are all clean and free. You can pull the cover off the primary an inspect the rollers. The secondary clutch is just one bolt. Give it a good cleaning too.

make sure its the correct belt as well. phaze and 1off are spot on with the advise. once you get that part figured, then you can work on the brake.

pulling the primary would be nice if you have the means, but as mentioned, you can pull the cover while its still on the sled and see whats happening in there.

What can happen is foreign matter will build up behind the spider in the slides. Thus, not completely releasing the sliding sheave. May also want to check out the condition of the slides. Replace if needed.

My daughters did what yours is doing. I had it all apart so we went ahead and replaced the slides........

Hey yamadad.
Took our maiden voyage on the 3 vmaxs tonight. Did pretty well.
Two questions, first one easy just so late I don't want to dig the manual.
What's the stock idle screw setting? All ours were set to 2.25. (96 xt 600)

Hard question now during the ride my friends 96 600xt started getting noisy.
Pop the hood, seems his clutch side oil seal on the crank has walked out.
It was really knocky sounding.
Does this seal just press in? Is it easy enough to remove the clutch and press a new one in?
He said it lost a good amount of low to mid power, aiming because of the crank pressure loss?

Thanks for any tips you have!

You have to split the case to replace it.

If you don't replace the seal, you'll end up with a holey piston.

The seals have a little grove that fits into the outside of the case. As said by RJ, you will need to split the case. You can do this without taking the top end off. When you seal the case back up, use Yamabond 5 on the halves.

as for your mixture screw, its 1.5 turns out for a base line. back when you found the airjets clogged when you cleaned your carbs, i am guessing someone adjusted the screws out to compensate for the plugged jets. there is also the possibility of different pilot jets in there and the adjustment would be needed if thats the case.

do not run that sled until the seal is fixed. and yes, the case needs split to replace it.

I've heard of people using soapy water. I think that works if the clutch is cleaned on a regular basis. Yours sounds like it needs more of a cleaning. I don't think I would use carb cleaner, brake cleaner would work. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

I believe a puller is around $20 give or take. I got mine from DK. Probably could have it at your door tomorrow. Latest Monday. I ordered driveshaft bearings yesterday for the Phazer. Supposed to be here today..... They have prompt shipping, costs $8(which is their minimum).
