XT225 Carb

Anyone know where to buy a replacement carb for a 99 XT225 or where to buy a used one? Yamaha wants $600 for a new one.

Why do you need a replacement? Stolen or lost?

There's always Sudco. Pricey but not $600 pricey.

Some dildo tightened the main jet too much that it f'ed up the housing.

Thanks!

Hello
Would I be able to take a mold of the plastic piece on the carb? Yamaha does not sell this item.

Thanks,

Aaron

1.2..3...

Broken!

Attached are the pictures of the plastic carb piece. It was previously repaired and fell apart when disassembled. The plastic has a red rubber diaphragm underneath. It appears to be a deal killer for an easy mold making experience.
I am looking for a used replacement now.
The parts diagram is HERE.
It is between 17 and 6.
I am going to try to epoxy it back together after boiling the carburetor.
Good Times...

Find a tubing that fit's tightly inside the port and glue it in there just far enough to support the repair. Make sure it's not blocking any holes inside. Find a glue that works on plastic as JBWeld doesn't work on plastic. Just gluing it together is recipe for doing it again.

What to you think this tubing should be made of? Metal?

Yeah some thinwall brass tubing from a hobby shop/hardware store should suffice.

I attempted to dissemble the carb to boil it. I encountered several problems. I was unable to remove the float pin to remove the float and needle. I tried penetrating oil and a small punch but it would not budge.
The second was the pilot let would not come out and I damaged the head in my attempt.
I cleaned everything as best I could. I did not let the carb body soak in boiling water but I did dip and swish it around. The other metal pieces were soaked for 20 min then cleaned with WD-40 and blown out with compressed air.
I also am missing the 2 needle spacers, one below and one above that contact the spring. I don't remember seeing them and I can't find them anywhere.
Yamaha sells the needle set for $43.62 but all I need are the 2 plastic spacers any ideas?

The good news is the plastic repair looks like it might hold...for now.

You could try calling and e-mailing some motorcycle junk yard for xt225 carb parts.

Update

I found the plastic spacers! They were in the slide!

I still cannot remove the float pin to inspect and clean the needle valve. The pilot jet is still stuck and the head is damaged.

The bike starts with the choke on full and will idle at half choke.
It will not idle without the choke but I can keep it going to get into first gear and ride.
At 1/4 and up it bogs hard to stall. I can put around an 1/8 throttle through 1st-3rd gears. I think I either jacked the pilot jet or was unable to clean everything.
