Carb Throtle Shaft Seal.

HI there,

I have a 1994 Vmax 500 Dx and am trying to find out if anyone knows where I can get throttle shaft seals? The throttle shaft goes into the carb that operates the slide and needle has a seal on both carbs. I have looked at the Yamaha fiche and they don't list the seal. My carbs are Mikuni TM36. Any help would be great

Thanks
Mike

Fox Distributors in St Charels Ill. But why? If you fear an air leak, try just rattleing them!
With carbs in hand, just shake them! If they rattle the lean condition is the slides are worn! Take them apart and send them to Mark at US Chrome in Wi. He can have the slide plated to bring them back to where they need to be to seal around the edgs!

Hey kccats,

Thanks for the info and reply. Yes I feared a air leak. The slides aren't actual in that bad of shape I didn't realize that the slides do all the sealing. I have seals they just look a little worn.

Call them! But first just give them a shake, and then hold the linkage at about 1/4 throtle!
