SR500 Round slide carb swap, any tips?

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I have a 1978 Yamaha SR 500 that i am doing the Mikuni Round slide carb swap to, I already have a Supertrap pipe and will be getting a K and N air filter (The Minton Mod) But I need some jetting tips, where to start with the air mixture screw, where should my needle be? (what clip) and just any other tips would be great, the bike does run with the orginal carb, but after about 10 or 15 minutes, it sputters and spills gas everywhere, so I am doing the round slide swap, mainly because parts for that stupid carb is hard to find.

Also, I will have to change my throttle cable, any idea which one i should get? I thought of XS 650 or maybe XS 550, but i didnt know for sure what to get, I am currently doing my motorcycle mechanic apprenticeship, but I am still in my first year, so i still do need some help.
