Just wanted to say hi...I have been a member on here for a couple years, but i changed my email address and my old member name was a lil too sled specific(koolcat). I recently bought and saved an 87 Exciter. Its in rough cosmetic shape but it runs...and thats all that matters right?
I have always wanted an exciter. After I got rid of my 90 Phazer II I have missed the yamahas. So being new to the Exciters i have a lot to learn and a lot of questions...Should my 87 have a coolant tank? Mine doesnt. How do i know when i have enough coolant. Also the main choke is broken and missing the cable to the left side carb. The thing that confuses me is that there is a type of choke swich up near the hood? Is this what it is or is it something else? Ive heard alot of bad things about butterlfy carbs? Whats the bad press about. Also Im not sure if the primary clutch is good or bad. It seems the stick after a while and not engage after being idle. Im not sure if i need to just take it apart and lube it, or replace it. It seems to have had issues before because someone used a hole saw and cut a hole out to gain access to the primary clutch bolt. Well Im sorry for the long post and all the questions. I dont think i did bad for 250 bux. I hope to get to know you all soon.
