  1. I am getting ready to do my first rebuild. I'm going to be boring and decking the head. My question, does the gasket set need to be bore specific? Cut me some slack, I'm new to this.

  3. I have a '96 Yamaha kodiac 400. Just rebuilt the carburetor and changed the oil and filter. It had gas in the oil and the air box. The rebuild took care of the gas in the oil and airbox. My problem is it smokes a good bit for about 20 seconds when I first start it when cold. After that no smoke but smells like it's running rich. I adjusted repeatedly the idle and pilot screws. This may sound stupid but could the height of the float affect this?
  4. This is my first post. I've been leaking gas for some time and just figured out from where. It's leaking from what I assume is some sort of overflow hose or something near the bottom right of the carb. Any ideas why and what should be done to fix it?
