Hi, Rbmotorsport it should be noted that the "AIR FUEL" mixture screw adjustment "ONLY" manages your idle and has no effect on any other circuit also any intake leaks must be repaired before the A/F adjustment procedure can be performed otherwise you will never obtain a proper idle and you will waste a lot of time chasing the impossible. The A/F mixture screw's purpose is to fine tune the fuel charge entering the combustion chamber. The following applies to both 2 and 4 stroke engines:
1. The mixture screw may be sealed at the factory with a Welch Plug please review the following video for removal.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAXcksgvDkM
2. The mixture screw manages a range of 3 complete 360-degree counterclockwise turns from the bottom/closed position.
3. The mixture screw should have a spring and o-ring for tension and sealing integrity.
4. Turn the mixture screw clockwise until it gently bottoms out, this makes the fuel charge very lean and the engine should not idle if it does then the pilot/idle jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller.
5. Turn the mixture screw 1 and 1/2 turns counterclockwise to establish a baseline for starting the engine.
6. To fine-tune the idle circuit, adjust the mixture screw 1/4 turn in or out to achieve maximum idle RPM, wait 15 seconds between each adjustment for the idle to settle.
7. Never go past 3 full turns out this will make the fuel charge rich, foul plugs, and produce black smoke out of the exhaust, if the engine RPM keeps increasing past 3 turns the pilot/idle jet is too small and needs to be replaced with the next size larger.
7. After achieving maximum idle back out the mixture screw another 1/8 of a turn then adjust the throttle cable idle stop screw to 950-1050 RPM.
8. This procedure works great on 99% of all engines, for the 1% that demand a more robust throttle response on aftermarket monster fuel delivery systems additional tweaking outside the box may be necessary.

Hi, Pete before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid or starter circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

Hi, William and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

Often a code will show up after involved work like you accomplished. I would reset it, if it doesn't come on again don't worry about it. Here's the procedure, read this thoroughly before doing it please; 1. Disconnect the positive wire off the battery. 2. Take the positive WIRE and ground it to the frame (use a jumper or screwdriver if necessary) Hold it there for about 30 seconds. This will erase the code and flash memory. 3. Hook the wire back onto the battery and start the bike. Expect a little rough idle while the computer relearns it's parameters, Easy. Of course follow all safety precautions about playing with batteries, that warning should keep all the attorneys in the world happy.

There is a round sight glass on the right side of the motor down low, near the front - you'll probably have to get on your hands and knees to see it. The bike must be held up vertically (not on the side stand) so you'll need someone to hold the bike up. It should also be level front to back and the oil level should be at about the halfway point between the top and bottom of the glass. Oil type recommended by Yamaha is SAE20W40. The site www.venturerider.org is a good resource for information on the Royal Star bikes. Be sure not to use automobile oil as most of those have "energy conserving" additives that will quickly ruin your clutch!! Stay with motorcycle specific oils to be on the safe side.

Try looking under your seat. A lot bikes/atvs carry them under the seat. It feels hard to lift them up but there is usually a lever to release it just at the tip of the seat near the gas tank. Being an older bike more than likely it has been removed especially if it was purchased used. Cabela's has kits for about 50.00. You can log onto their website at www.cabelas.com. Search the site along the left side of the page it is very easy.

You need to replace the housing not the pump, the thermostat does nothing but open or close depending on the coolant temperature.
