A Couple of Newbie Questions

Recommended Posts

I searched the posts, and couldn't find answers to a couple of questions. I hope you guys can help:

1) Is it a problem to remove the seat strap? Between the two rear seat bolts, and the underseat connecting "hooks", the seat seems securely mounted. The strap just slows down seat removal, and I think the bike looks better without it.

2) Does anyone have the spec's on the carb float bowl screws (bolts)? I'm going to do the 3X3, re-jet and extended fuel screw modifications, and it sounds like everyone recommends putting new allen head bolts on at the same time. I'd like to pick those up before I start the work. I assume most of you go with stainless allen head bolts?

Thanks in advance!

I can't help with the screws as I used them over (after coating them liberally with never-sieze) and have had them out a couple of times since for jetting changes-no probs. As for the seat strap: that is usually the first thing to go. It doesn't hold anything and just gets in the way when you slide around off road.

the screws were around 4x6mm if i can remember right. Its not to big of a pain to take them to your local hardware store before putting it all back together (just to be sure)
