What could go wrong?

Last time I had a seized carb slide I used a high quality penetrating oil and soaked it for a few days, then I pried ever so gently with a piece of plastic and it broke free with little force.

A few heat / cool cycles from a blow dryer may help.

I'd do a leak down test or change out the crank seals before firing it up.

Its awesome seeing all those Yamaha enduros together on the picture page! I didn't get a chance to try the carb tonight, hopefully I will tomorrow. Anyone know if the slide and sleeve are the same metal? There looks to be very little if any gunk around the carb. And what about freezing the carb? Everything I have seen has said to use heat, but could getting it cold make the sleeve expand and free it up?

Might be worth a try , couldn't hurt. How are you going to get it off of the cable?

Got it unstuck and pulled all apart! Lots of WD-40 and then hit it with a screwdriver and it slid right out, and there is no rust there was only some varnish holding it

For varnish a little heat (heatgun) will help. Good luck

I got the case pried open today and there is more varnish inside the case that needs to be cleaned out. I keep reading to soak the carb in carb cleaner, by soak should I fill a bucket with cleaner and let the carb sit in it for a while or keep spraying and drying it?

Also the air filter is crumbling, it is like a triangle shape is it safe to use or should I try and find a new one?

Try to find a filter. You don't want to suck dirt or crumbling filter thru the motor. The carb isn't really that complex. I'd just take it apart and shoot carb cleaner all over it and thru all of the passages.

Is carb cleaner what I should be using or would there maybe be something better for it?

The carb cleaner is the stuff in a 1 gal pail that Autozone etc sell. Made by Gunk. the spray cans are just to spray it off.

uni filter makes a filter for it. I found one for my 78 yz400 through dc plastics.

The YZ and DT filters are going to be different.
