I have a CLymer manual, and it's great for describing step-by-step how to take stuff apart, inspect it, and put it back together without making things worse. I would highly recommend it. My scanner is broken at the moment, else I could scan and send a couple of pages.

Or you all could buy my '98. You can read it's history right here in these pages. It currently resides in my garage here in Phoenix...

I also realized this, but I don't like too much the white ones you made. Please, be aware that the valve cover should rest on these caps to avoid the caps being moved because the oil presure, to serve as top when tighten the cover screws, and to help to mitigate vibrations. I believe you can make better ones with instant gasket and a cast, for example.

Just a suggestion

There are CLYMER Repair Manual for XT350

I have found some technical service manuals from the internet which has 30-40 pages of brief explanation of almost every part of the bike.

I wonder if CLYMER Repair Manual has more information.

Anyone has it and can send me some example pages from it?

Thanks,

SKY
If you're refering to the "XT350 Service Guide, YAMAHA technical training", it's good, but the Clymer manual has a lot of more information. I recomend you to invest some money buying one because in the PDF file that is flying over there the images have no good resolution. I have the original at home to keep it clean, and a printed greasy copy of the PDF in the shop

There is also over there a PDF Service Guide for the TT350S very very good, very useful for all engine parts.

Hi Mates!

I have found this manual on the net:
http://207.134.169.32/~guigui/XT350/XT350.rar

which was mentioned on this page:
http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/arc.../t-494963.html

The title is:
Yamaha XT350,TT350 85-00 Clymer Service Manual ENG By Mosue.pdf

I guess its the PDF form of the original Clymer.

The pictures were ok but the original printed book would be better.
The information inside is great.
I wish i had it before all the work i've made on my bike.

I will order a copy of the original Clymer Manual.

Thank you all for help!

PS: does this links cause problems about copyright issues?
if possible, i can remove the links. We should respect the rights.

I will check them again, i made them to plug the hole tightly but didn't bother about the height.
At cold starts the oil pressure goes up to 1 bar (14psi)
which is around 100mbars when hot.
This pressure may cause plugs to pop out or leak oil around them.
The same pressure had the clogged oil filter to tear as well.
The temp. was around freezing point at that time.
Thanks for reminding,
SKY

Re...

Thanks for the replies to all that did.
I'm probably going to leave the jetting alone for now since it starts on the first kick and runs great. I may change stuff if I get a Suppertrap for it.
For all I know, its been jetted already since it starsts so well.
I'm fixing the forks and adding an 1 1/2" to 2" spacre as described previously, and adding 330cc's of 15 weight oil to start.
I'll check the shock as to where the clip is while Im at it.
Any other suggestions will be welcome.
Thanks again.

+ 1 on the Supertrapp
-1 on removing the snorkel. My bike never seemed to like that. I'm running a UNI filter with the door off + Supertrapp w/ 8 disks, proper (?) jetting. My bike-y likes, and so do I.

Skid, someone stole your muffler?!? Damn, that sucks.
At least they left me the rest of the bike and I still had the stocker.

Pure speculation, bu tI have a feeling the plugs are supposed to leak a little oil out. I know mine are pretty loose. Kind of a low tech relief valve.

OMG I have left my XT out to die. That frickin carb I just cant seem to figure out whats wrong with it. Acts just like an idle circuit blockage, but HOLY SHIT I have had it off and on about 59,000,00000000 times and it still coughs and spits back through the carb, dying as it does. I want to kill it.

IS there a full carb rebuild kit? I have been stuck with some hinky O-rings and the like, but I feel the only option other than NEW carb is to yank that bitch down to its smallest components and replace ALL the consumables.

I'm ready to cry, if I didnt have another bike to sooth my tattered feelings.

No rebuild kit that I know of, but I haven't had any problem getting the bits and pieces from the dealer(mostly o-rings).
Maybe find someone with an ultrasonic cleaner you can soak it in for a bit.
The tiny passage between the Pilot jet hole and the Pilot screw hole is a really hard to clean if there is something in there.
Also, make sure the tip of the pilot screw didn't break off and plug the hole.
Is the float level OK, maybe you bumped it one of the times you took it apart.

Check the timing, Did you touched the cams? or cam chain? mine did the same after i refit the cams. I had to jump a thooth on the timing chain, it would start and work well but on idle it just die out suddenly and back fire also.
How's yor intake boots?
