  1. Sorry it took so long to reply! i kinda forgot about this forum Anyway, I finally found a bike shop here that could order parts for it. I also found out it is a 1992. It now runs perfect! i think i need a clutch soon but that's not a big deal. In one carb the idle jet was broken off and laying in the bowl. There was also a lot of gunk in it. the other one was pretty bad too. the float was bent and the plunger was stuck in place. all in all the carbs cost me about $200. but luckily that's all that was wrong!

  5. Hello, I am currently stationed in Okinawa Japan and i bought a Yamaha SRV250. I got it for a helluva steal. only $750! Anyway, it has some serious carburetor issues and i need to rebuild them. the only problem is i can't find carb parts for it anywhere!! From what i've read the carbs are not the same as its Virago brother being that the Virago only has one horizontal carb and the SRV has two vertical carbs. Anyway, if anyone knows where i can get carb parts for it or if there are any identical carbs i can use parts from please let me know so i can get this thing up and running! Also, the guy i bought it from said that it was a 1981, however, from what i've read they were only made from 1994 to 1997. I can't read the VIN sticker because its in japanese. I'll add a few pictures and maybe someone can tell me for sure what year it is. I know a decent amout about motorcycles but not knowing anything about this one makes me feel kinda dumb lol. Thanks for the help!! [sharedmedia=garage:vehicles:1068]
