--Hitachi Parts



HITACHI CARB REBUILD PARTS:

NOTE: Hitachi carbs were originally used on all Yamaha XJ650 models (except Turbo models), all 1981-84 XJ750 models, and all XJ700 (non-"X") models. All other XJ models from this era (XJ550, XJ650 Turbo models, XJ700 "X" models, XJ900, and XJ1100 models) used Mikuni carbs.

There are two different main types of the Hitachi HSC series carbs used on the XJ-series bikes of this era:

HSC32: used on all 1981-84 XJ650 models using Hitachi carbs.

HSC33: used on all 1985-86 XJ700 air-cooled engines, 1983 XJ750E-II, and XJ750RL models using Hitachi carbs.

HSC40: used on some XV700, XV750, XJ920, XV1000, and XV1100 models. Note that some later 1980's Virago models changed to using Mikuni carbs.

The "series" number of the carbs refers to the internal diameter of the carb throat (the area where the butterfly valves are) and is expressed in the closest millimeter measurement. Thus the HSC32 series carbs have a 32mm ID throat, and the HSC33 series carbs have a 33mm ID throat.

Original carb bodies are typically marked with an ink stamping that identifies the intended use of the carbs......for example, the 1982-83 XJ650 Maxim carbs (US models) would have an ink stamping that reads "5N800", while the XJ650 Maxim carbs (Canadian models) carbs would be inked as "5N900", while the 1981-83 XJ750 Seca (USA) carbs are inked "5G200", etc. This ink stamp could have been on the carb bodies, or on the sides or bottom of the bowls......and, after 20+ years and a number of carb cleaning efforts, are probably long gone.

Different series of Hitachi carbs can be quite difficult to properly identify from one another, and Hitachi carbs were also used on other manufacturer model bikes, and while even the same "series" of Hitachi carbs may have been used on, say, a certain Kawasaki model bike, the internal jetting, valving, and other design elements (choke actuation method, etc.) typically renders such carbs as "similar but different enough" to not be directly (or even indirectly!) interchangeable with the proper Yamaha version carbs for a particular model.

Please note that although the HSC33 series carbs are very similar in design and appearance to the HSC32 series, and although many parts do interchange between these two different series of carbs, the HSC33 carbs are different in some key components and in their physical size (the throats are bigger, the carb spacing is wider, and the entire rack of carbs is slightly longer than the HSC32's). It may be difficult, if not impossible, to properly swap the HSC32 and HSC33 carb racks between bikes due to these differences.



NOTE: "OEM" refers to an original Yamaha factory part, whereas "Replacement" or "Aftermarket" refers to a part not made by Yamaha or one of their original suppliers. Note that an "OEM" part may be made by Yamaha's original supplier, even though such part is no longer serviced through the Yamaha factory parts system.

HITACHI CARB UPPER END PARTS:

NOTE: fuel jets, air jets, float valves, and main jet needles are located in the section "LOWER END PARTS" further below.


THROTTLE SHAFT REBUILD PARTS:

Throttle Shaft Seals:

aaa) OEM and aftermarket Hitachi HSC32/33/40 series carb THROTTLE SHAFT SEALS...these are the seals on the outside of the carb body that the throttle shaft passes through. Uses 2 per carb, but without taking the carbs apart from their rack, the only ones you can replace are the outer-most seals on the end carbs. These seals will fit almost all stock Hitachi carbs used in the 1980-and 90’s models, including all XJ650, all XJ700, and all XJ750 models, as well as 1980-81 XS850 engines and various 1984-87 XV700, 1981-83 and 1988 XV750, 1981-83 XV920, 1984-85 XV1000, 1986-87 XV1100, 1983-85 XVZ12, 1983 XVZ1300, 1986-90 XVZ13, and 1985-86 and many 1989-up VMX12 V-Max models which use Hitachi carbs.

The aluminum-bodied carbs, when heated by conduction from the engine, tend to expand more quickly and by a greater amount than the air-cooled steel throttle shafts.

Thus as these shaft seals wear and harden, they can't always maintain a vacuum-tight seal in all conditions, resulting in a lean running condition once the engine is warmed up----even though they "seal" perfectly well at idle, or when the carb bodies are still cool. If the pilot screws are adjusted with the bike partially warmed up, it may appear to be richer than necessary when cool, and then running lean when hot, resulting in an incredibly confusing and frustrating situation to diagnose and remedy.

These V-shaped seals are installed with their open “face” facing away from the carb throat. The OEM seals (HCP6838B) have one open face and one closed face, while the aftermarket HCP38B seals are like the original-installed seals, and have an “open” face on both sides (and thus for the HCP38B seals, it does not matter in which direction they are installed!).

An excellent write-up on the process required to take the carbs apart fully and replace these seals can be reviewed at:

We recommend the use of silicone grease when installing any of these seals:

HCP28407 Aftermarket o-ring, oil seal, and gasket installation pure SILICONE GREASE. This small, 5-gram snap-open "pillow packet" is enough for a dozens of small seals, o-rings, and the like. Each:
$ 4.95

HCP1714 Aftermarket o-ring, oil seal, and gasket installation pure SILICONE GREASE. This generous 1/2-oz. tub goes a long way, because just like Brylcreem, "just a little dab will do ya'!" Each:
$ 9.95



NOTE: the following product can only be shipped via ground transport (which thus eliminates the Priority Mail level of service for this item) and cannot (and will not----don't even ask!) be shipped outside of the continental USA. Therefore it may have to be shipped in a separate package from the remainder of your order, and will thus incur additional shipping charges.

HCP20861 Aftermarket industrial-strength SILICONE LUBE, in a large 16-ounce aerosol can. Concentrated silicone sprays on wet, and then dries to a super-slick, clear, non-greasy, non-staining finish. Resists moisture, stops squeeks, prevents binding on all types of surfaces (wood, metal, plastic, rubber, even fabrics). Won't wash away, protect against rust and corrosion, stable from -100 degrees up to 500-F. This fluid is also a great choice for use as installation lubricant for o-rings, oil seals, etc. (similar to our HCP1714 or HCP28407 silicone grease paste) or wherever petroleum-based lubricants are not recommended.
$ 24.95



COMMENTARY: These seals are a VERY common source of vacuum leaks into the carbs, making tuning (synch, colortune, etc.) somewhere between very difficult and next-to-impossible. And here's the dirty little secret that no one really talks about:

If you read through these boards often and enough---or any other websites or lists devoted to these XJ bikes----you'll find a common theme in regards to these bikes, and it goes something like this:

"My bike doesn't run right."

And 9 times out of 10, it's due to a carb problem. And to make matters worse, these bikes don't just use one carb, they use four, which means that the synchronization of the four carbs to each other is critical in order for them to perform properly.

And 95% of the problems with the carbs is this: they are dirty (more like filthy!) inside due to age, and these seals are worn out. But to replace these seals (and also to properly get the insides of the carbs absolutely, positively, ZESTFULLY clean), you're gonna have to pull the carb rack apart. Although that task is not mechanically difficult....nor does it take any special tools to do it.....the re-assembly process will MERCILESSLY PUNISH the careless or impatient mechanic or hobbyist. A tremendous attention to detail and organization is needed before you begin to take these carbs apart, so that you will have all the proper notes, drawings, sketches, etc. to put humpty-dumpty back together again, properly.

Since most people lack those skills or discipline, you will find most of the experienced experts on the various boards and forums telling you to NOT take the carbs apart, and to forego the proper cleaning and parts replacement steps needed.

I'm not trying to tell you to do, or not to do the task properly yourself; all I can tell you is what my own personal experience is. If you have the proper tools, time, and organizational skills and the PATIENCE to do the job right, breaking a rack apart and doing the job properly isn't that difficult. If you don't, it's a nightmare.

And the other dirty little secret is this: before you can synch and tune your carbs properly, you MUST check and adjust your valve clearances (replace worn valve shims), or all the synching and colortuning in the world isn't going to give you optimal results.

Sorry to be the bearer of such bad news, but as always, the truth will set you free (or at least solve most of your tuning and performance issues!).

Luckily, all of the parts and special tools needed to perform a proper tune up ARE available. I guess we should appreciate the little things in life more than we usually do........


We also strongly recommend the purchase of a new set of throttle shaft butterfly retaining screws, as it is very common to strip the heads out of the original screws while removing them. Replacement screws are listed further below.

Also, you may find it next-to-impossible to properly remove the original screws without using the proper JIS-style screwdriver. Typical "phillips-drive" style screwdrivers do not have the proper tip design to engage the slots on JIS-specifications screws (which all screws on Japanese bikes are) and tend to very easily strip out the screw heads. We offer complete sets of various sized JIS screwdrivers, but those people wanting only the correct size screwdriver for these throttle shaft screws should order the HCP5901 (size #2) screwdriver:


JIS Screwdrivers:

mt1) Almost every screw on these bikes are "JIS" design screws, JIS standing for Japanese Industrial Standards, and both the depth and design on the phillips-head "slot" is different than typical US slots. In a nutshell, JIS screws (which can be easily identified by the small punched single "dot" on the screw head, in-between two of the screw slots) have both deeper and "squarer" slots and thus can hold more torque than their rest-of-the-world counterparts. They also require a JIS screwdriver to take full advantage of, and to prevent rounding out the slots as typical phillips screwdrivers will do. The more "rounded" edges of a standard phillips-drive screwdriver cannot exert as much torque on the screw head (by design, actually) and will "cam-out" of the slots, taking some of the slot material with it.....and then you have what is affectionately known as a !!#&$!?**#! stripped out screw head!

So it might be a good idea to also invest in a set of quality JIS screwdrivers; trust me, they make a difference (and yes, they can be used on standard phillips-drive screws, too).

We offer these tools in three different quality grades and styles to meet your particular needs:

* Standard-Grade screwdrivers are a low-cost alternative that do a fine job in light-duty use.
* Mechanics-grade screwdrivers are a heavy-duty design and is recommended for the typical home mechanic or shop.
* Impact-grade screwdrivers feature a hardened “head” and an internal cam-drive that rotates the shaft about 12-degrees when struck by a hammer -----similar to the operation of an impact driver, but in a much more useful form. These drivers look, feel, and operate just like a mechanic-grade screwdriver above, but can also be given a sturdy “whack!” to help persuade frozen fasteners to give up their grip. Highly recommended when working on the carbs (the upper and lower rack bracket screws are a beast to remove without an impact driver ) or in any number of other situations when working on seized or rusted fasteners.

Throttle Shaft Hardware:

v5) Aftermarket Hitachi throttle shaft BUTTERFLY VALVE MOUNTING SCREW. Each round aluminum butterfly "valve" is held to the steel throttle shaft via two tiny phillips head screws. The throttle shaft has self-locking threads which makes the removal of these screws both a chore and usually results in a buggered phillips head slot. These replacement screws come in a variety of materials and drive styles. Use 2 per carb on all HSC32/33/40 series carbs.

And if you’re so unfortunate to have buggered the threads on the shaft, you might be able to rescue the threads on the throttle shafts by re-tapping the holes with this tap:

HCP6336 THREAD CHASER AND CLEAN-UP TAP, made from a high-speed uncoated steel. For the following holes:
- all Hitachi and Mikuni throttle shafts where the butterfly valve screw on
- all models petcock faceplate mounting screw holes.
$ 12.95

HCP28170 Aftermarket thread tap or EZ-out extractor TAP HANDLE, featuring offset tap handles and fully adjustable head for all m3-m12 size taps and size 0 to ½” extractors. This is the proper way to hold a tap or extractor to insure that the force is directed straight down and doesn’t “wobble” as you are cutting, reaming, or extracting. Much better than using pliers or vise-grips to hold the tool……..
$ 17.95


If the threads are too damaged, then we offer these problem-solver kits that contain a longer screw and special ultra-thin nut:

HCP26994SET Aftermarket Hitachi butterfly valve “problem-solver” MOUNTING SCREW & NUT SET, panhead 18-8 stainless steel screw, phillips-drive. This longer-than-stock screw and matching thin nut allows you to salvage a throttle shaft which has damaged, stripped, or missing threads…..the longer reach of the threads clears the back side of the throttle shaft and allows the nut to secure the valve to the shaft. NOTE: the threads in the throttle shaft should be drilled out using our HCP26993 oversize drill bit, to remove any damaged threads and to slightly enlarge the hole, allowing the replacement screw to pass through the throttle shaft without engaging the shaft. NOTE: you must use thread-locking fluid HCP1266 when installing this fastener! For use on Hitachi carbs as used on all XJ650 (except Turbo), 1985-86 XJ700 air-cooled -models, and all 1981-84 XJ750 air-cooled models. This set contain one screw and one nut, enough to repair one damaged hole. You will need to order 2 sets to repair both holes in a single throttle shaft.
$ 2.95

HCP26994SET8 Aftermarket Hitachi butterfly valve “problem-solver” MOUNTING SCREW & NUT SETS, panhead 18-8 stainless steel screw, phillips-drive. Contains 8 screws and 8 nuts.
$ 14.95

HCP26993 Aftermarket throttle shaft screw OVERSIZE DRILL BIT allows you to remove damaged threads and slightly enlarge the screw hole in damaged throttle shafts so that our problem-solver screws can be used. 1/8” shank. For use with all Mikuni and Hitachi models.
$ 9.95

HCP1266 Low Strength THREAD LOCKER FLUID, 6ml squeeze tube. This is a semi-permanent formula that provides moderate vibration-loosening resistance, while still allowing for easy disassembly of the fastener with hand tools. This formula is recommended for upper and lower carb rack mount screws and the butterfly valve-to-throttle shaft retaining screws. A little bit goes a long way.......
$ 11.95



HCP26994KIT Aftermarket Hitachii butterfly valve “problem-solver” MOUNTING SCREW & NUT SETS, contains 8 of the HCP26991 screw and nut sets, a tube of the HCP1266 low-strength locker fluid, and the HCP26993 drill bit. This kit has enough parts to repair 8 damaged shaft holes.
$ 24.95




all of the following screws are for use on throttle shafts with undamaged threads :

Unless you have reasons for doing otherwise, we recommend upgrading the butterfly valve retaining screws to the 18-8 stainless steel HCP2561 button head hex-key style-----they are more durable than stock phillips headed plain steel, and much easier to remove in the future if the need ever arises. NOTE: SAE style panhead screws are standard-design phillips-drive fasteners, while the JIS type panhead screws are Japanese Industrial Standard design screws, which use a JIS drive (a better design than a true "phillips" cross), and are what was used originally on these carbs. Besides the difference in the drive slot, JIS screws are smaller in head diameter and in head height.

HITACHI BUTTERFLY VALVE SYNCH SCREWS HARDWARE:

ts37) The closed position of the individual throttle plate "butterfly" valves is controlled via a fine-threaded, spring-loaded SYNCH SCREW.........these are the actual screws that are adjusted when performing a "running synch" on the engine.

http://www.xjbikes.com/forums/threads/running-sync-screw-in-or-out-that-is-the-question.75716/

Our re-plated Hitachi synch SCREWS, SPRINGS, and PLUNGER RODS allow you to re-create the original look and beauty of these carb racks. These parts are available re-plated to their correct original yellow-zinc appearance. If you need to replace any missing hardware, or just want to create a show-winning look, then you should start your shopping list here! NOTE: all synch hardware pieces are re-plated, used parts, and as such, may have minor cosmetic flaws (tooling marks, fastener marks, etc.). Most such marks will not be visible once installed. Also, all re-plated items require a refundable core charge which will be credited back to you once you return a same-model, same-type of item(s)as you purchased. Since these are re-plated used parts, we do require an exchange for your original parts so we can have a steady supply of parts to be processed and re-plated for future sales.

If the threaded holes in the throttle shaft brackets (where the synch screws are fitted) are overly tight, you may want to clean ("chase") the threads so you get a like-new feel to them:

HCP28202 Aftermarket THREAD CHASER AND CLEAN-UP TAP, made from a high-speed titanium nitride coated steel. For the following holes: Mikuni and Hitachi synch screw threads in the throttle shaft brackets, and Mikuni and Hitachi idle speed bolt threads in lower rack bracket.

This is the proper way to hold a tap or extractor to insure that the force is directed straight down and doesn’t “wobble” as you are cutting, reaming, or extracting. Much better than using pliers or vise-grips to hold the tool……..

v5) Aftermarket Hitachi throttle shaft BUTTERFLY VALVE MOUNTING SCREW. Each round aluminum butterfly "valve" is held to the steel throttle shaft via two tiny phillips head screws. The throttle shaft has self-locking threads which makes the removal of these screws both a chore and usually results in a buggered phillips head slot. These replacement screws come in a variety of materials and drive styles. Use 2 per carb on all HSC32/33/40 series carbs.

And if you’re so unfortunate to have buggered the threads on the shaft, you might be able to rescue the threads on the throttle shafts by re-tapping the holes with this tap:

HCP6336 THREAD CHASER AND CLEAN-UP TAP, made from a high-speed uncoated steel. For the following holes:
- all Hitachi and Mikuni throttle shafts where the butterfly valve screw on

If the threads are too damaged, then we offer these problem-solver kits that contain a longer screw and special ultra-thin nut:

HCP26994SET Aftermarket Hitachi butterfly valve “problem-solver” MOUNTING SCREW & NUT SET, panhead 18-8 stainless steel screw, phillips-drive. This longer-than-stock screw and matching thin nut allows you to salvage a throttle shaft which has damaged, stripped, or missing threads…..the longer reach of the threads clears the back side of the throttle shaft and allows the nut to secure the valve to the shaft. NOTE: the threads in the throttle shaft should be drilled out using our HCP26993 oversize drill bit, to remove any damaged threads and to slightly enlarge the hole, allowing the replacement screw to pass through the throttle shaft without engaging the shaft. NOTE: you must use thread-locking fluid HCP1266 when installing this fastener! For use on Hitachi carbs as used on all XJ650 (except Turbo), 1985-86 XJ700 air-cooled -models, and all 1981-84 XJ750 air-cooled models. This set contain one screw and one nut, enough to repair one damaged hole. You will need to order 2 sets to repair both holes in a single throttle shaft.

HITACHI IDLE - PILOT MIXTURE SCREW PARTS:

NOTE: idle mixture screws are also referred to as "pilot mixture screws" or "pilot screws".

If you've never delved into the guts of your carburetor idle mixture screw port, it can sometimes be confusing. Here's the playbook for this critical area:

If we were looking at a cut-away of the carb body/idle mixture screw bore, the order of parts, from bottom to top, would be:

a) HCP895 o-ring
b) HCP896 spring seat washer
c) HCP6573 tension spring
d) the idle mixture screw
e) the anti-tamper cap.

What is mostly confusing is the order of the o-ring versus the spring seat washer....which goes in the hole first? The answer is that the HCP895 O-ring does. The HCP896 washer primarily acts as the lower "seat" for the HCP6573 tension spring, while also keeping the o-ring firmly and securely in place.


NOTE: if you come across a stuck, seized, or otherwise so badly damaged screw that just won't come out, then here is the best advice that we can offer to deal with it:

http://xjbikes.com/forums/index.php?threads/32017



ims83) Aftermarket replacement IDLE MIXTURE SCREWS (sometimes referred to as pilot screws, or pilot mixture screws, or "those stripped out things in that hole up front"), for all Hitachi HSC-32 and -33 series carbs as used on XJ650 (except Turbo), all XJ750 Maxim and Seca models, and XJ700 non-X (air-cooled) carbs. Correct reproduction screws are available in the original styles to exactly replace damaged, stripped, or missing originals.

The original screws were available in three versions:

a) Alloy steel, with coarse-pitch threads, used on 1980-81 XJ650 Maxim and Midnight Maxim model carbs. The best description I can give for "coarse" threads is that the threads are sized much like you would see on a standard screw (like the carb bowl drain screws, etc.).....the threads are rather "wide apart". This is in contrast to..........

b) Alloy steel, with ultra-fine-pitch threads, used on 1982-up XJ650 models with Hitachi carbs, all XJ750 Maxim and Seca models, and possibly on early model XJ700 non-X Hitachi HSC33 series carbs. Ultra-fine thread pitch looks like screw threads used on some kind of jeweler's or watchmaker's incredibly-closely-spaced threads.

c) Brass, with ultra-fine-pitch threads, used only in XJ700 non-X Hitachi HSC33 series carbs.


Note that the determination of which style screw YOUR carbs have can vary from what MODEL AND YEAR bike you have, as someone may have switched a carb body, an entire rack of carbs, or due to original mass-production and supplier differences and timing of production.

ALL ORIGINAL HITACHI IDLE MIXTURE SCREWS ARE IDENTICAL AS TO FUNCTION AND DIFFER ONLY BY THEIR THREAD PITCH (coarse versus ultra-fine) AND THE MATERIAL THEY WERE MADE OF (alloy steel versus brass). Owners of carbs with the ultra fine-pitch threaded screws CANNOT use coarse-thread pitch screws, and vice-versa.

A visual identification of the different thread pitches can be seen at:

http://www.xjbikes.com/forums/threa...fference-between-coarse-and-fine-thread.80399

and

http://www.xjbikes.com/forums/threads/easy-carb-tuning-question.93762/#post-522499

Or, you can count threads:
- coarse-pitch mixture screws have a total of 5 threads.
- ultra-fine-pitch mixture screws have a total of 7-8 threads.

However, owners of carbs with the (much more common) ultra-fine pitch threaded bores and screws can use either the steel or brass screws interchangeably----although we recommend sticking with one or the other in a full rack of carbs.


Why did Hitachi change from using coarse thread (1980-81) to fine-threaded screws? Who knows, but it probably has something to do with the fineness of the adjustability needed for these precision mixture screws.....a fine-threaded screw offers a much more precise level of fine-tuning adjustability than a coarse-threaded screw does ("coarse-pitch" screws move the screw further along it's bore for each given amount of turning, so a 1/4-revolution turn of a coarse-pitch screw will move that screw FURTHER up or down in its bore than the same 1/4-revolution turn will move a fine-pitched screw).

Thus the standard advice of using the 2.5-to-3 turns out (from bottoming) as a "starting point" for the idle mixture screw setting is really based on the use of the fine-pitched screws; the earlier coarse-pitch screws would need to be initially set at about 1.5-to-2 turns out as an initial starting point.

More questions from the audience: Why did Hitachi change from using steel screws (most 1980-83 model carbs) to brass screws (1985-86 models)? Who knows, but it was either a cost saving measure (brass is not normally cheaper than steel, but it is much easier to machine precisely), or, given how these screws are known for seizing up in their bores, perhaps it was to provide a material that was not as susceptible to seizure (such as brass).

Either way, since you will be using some anti-seize fluid when installing your new screw (or even when re-using your old screws during a rebuild), this is not really an issue any more. Right? RIGHT? I mean, you WILL use anti-seize, won't you?

These idle mixture screws are exact reproductions of the originals, with the original straight-blade screw head, and are available in either the coarse-pitch in a Type 304 stainless steel material (instead of the original alloy steel), or in the fine pitch versions----and the fine pitch versions are available in either a Type 304 stainless steel material (instead of the original alloy steel) or screw-grade Brass.

NOTE: these threaded holes almost always need cleaning or re-tapping. Be careful when using these taps to make sure that you are cleaning and/or re-cutting the original threads, rather than any crossed/stripped threads that may be present. And beware the tiny needle tip hole at the bottom of the screw. Finally, note that the flat o-ring land (at the bottom of the screw hole) must not be damaged or gouged.......make sure that you do not run the tap in deep enough to damage that smooth land.

v) IDLE MIXTURE SCREW TOOL is designed for the proper removal and fine adjustment of the idle mixture screw, preventing the destruction of the fragile straight slot head on these screws. An exact-fit blade is set at the end of a 12” long shaft, and the screw driving bit is rotated via a handle on the end of tool....this design not only eliminates stripping out the idle mixture screw slot, but also allows for very fine adjustment of the screw when fine-tuning the carbs (when using a colortune plug, etc.). The long horizontal shaft allows you to easily reach the center carbs from the outside of the carb bank, no need to lift the tank to access them. A knurled section on the shaft provides for a positive grip. A very neat little tool and it'll last a lifetime or two. Fits: all XJ550 all, all XJ650, all XJ700, all XJ750, all XJ900, XJ1100, and all 1980-81 XS1100 carbs.

HCP24870 Aftermarket idle mixture screw REMOVAL AND ADJUSTER TOOL, fits all Hitachi and all Mikuni idle mixture screws.

HITACHI IDLE SPEED SCREW PARTS:

Not to be confused with the idle MIXTURE screw listed above, the IDLE SPEED SCREW is the large knurled-head screw that lives dead center, at the bottom of the carb rack, in-between the #2 and #3 cars, and pointing straight back. This screw is used to adjust the idle speed of the engine, and has no effect on the idle mixture nor the carb (engine) "synch" settings!

Our re-plated Hitachi idle speed adjustment SCREWS AND SPRINGS allow you to re-create the original look and beauty of these carb racks. These parts are available re-plated to their correct original yellow-zinc appearance. If you need to replace any missing hardware, or just want to create a show-winning look, then you should start your shopping list here! NOTE: all idle speed adjustment screws and springs are re-plated, used parts, and as such, may have minor cosmetic flaws (tooling marks, fastener marks, etc.). Most such marks will not be visible once installed. Also, all re-plated items require a refundable core charge which will be credited back to you once you return a same-model, same-type of item(s) as you purchased. Since these are re-plated used parts, we do require an exchange for your original parts so we can have a steady supply of parts to be processed and re-plated for future sales.


HCP95RP OEM re-plated idle speed adjuster SCREW, use 1 per carb rack in-between the #3 and #4 carbs. Fits all XJ650 (except Turbo), all air-cooled XJ700 non-X, and all air-cooled XJ750 engines with Hitachi carbs. Correct yellow-zinc plated screw has the large knurled head.

HCP9849 Aftermarket Hitachi idle speed screw rubber GROMMET, fits into the lower carb rack bracket opening where the idle speed screw enters the bracket. This replacement grommet is quite a bit larger than the stock grommet, but fits and works properly. Use a little bit of silicone grease on the screw's shaft where it passes through this grommet and it will be silky-smooth in operation. Fits all XJ650 (except Turbo), XJ700 non-X, and XJ750 models using Hitachi carbs.
$ 1.95


HCP4024 Aftermarket Hitachi carb idle speed screw WASHER, not an original part, but if you use a set of these thin flat plastic shimming washers in-between the spring and the screw, and between the spring and the bracket (in other words, on either end of the spring), it greatly reduces the friction between the two and makes the idle screw silky-smooth to adjust! Fits all XJ650 (except Turbo), XJ700 non-X, and XJ750 models using Hitachi carbs. Each:

HITACHI CARB FUEL SUPPLY AND BOWL OVERFLOW T-FITTINGS, CONNECTOR TUBES, AND O-RINGS:

mtz1) Aftermarket Hitachi fuel supply input T-FITTING AND OVERFLOW T-FITTINGS. The fuel inlet t-fitting is accepts the fuel line from the petcock and, via the connector tubes, "splits" the fuel flow to the other carbs for their incoming fuel supply. While the original inlet t-fittings are no longer available, our solid machined brass replacements use dual o-rings on each leg, and fit and seal as well or better than the originals.

Bowl vent/overflow t-fittings are used only on the HSC33 series carbs (used on XJ700 air-cooled models and XJ750RL models only). These replacement overflow t-fittings are made from solid brass, and have machined grooves to accept dual rubber o-rings.



HCP16327 Aftermarket Hitachi HSC32-series carbs brass fuel inlet T-FITTING, for use on all XJ650 (except Turbo) models, and all 1981-83 XJ750 models. These solid brass tee's include the o-rings on each "leg". Use 1 per carb rack, fitted between carbs #1 and #2. Each:
$ 39.95

HCP16329 Aftermarket Hitachi HSC33-series carbs brass fuel inlet T-FITTING, for use on all XJ700 air-cooled models and XJ750RL models. These solid brass tee's use dual o-rings (included) on each "leg" and thus fits and seals much better than the original fitting. Use 1 per carb rack, fitted between carbs #2 and #3. Each:
$ 39.95


HCP16328 Aftermarket brass fuel bowl vent/overflow T-FITTING, use 2 on all XJ700 air-cooled models and XJ750RL models in-between both the #1/2 and #3/4 carbs. Includes o-rings. These brass tee's fit and seal much better than the original fittings. Each:
$ 36.95



mmm1) OEM and Aftermarket Hitachi fuel supply t-fittings and connector tube O-RING.....all fours carbs share a common fuel supply, and this fuel supply is distributed to each carb via a brass or aluminum tube that connects one carb to another. These tubes fits into a machined bores in the carb base, and the tubes are sealed in their bores with these rubber o-rings. NOTE: original seals were "D-rings" rather than "O-rings", but are now serviced only as o-rings (both OEM and replacements), but are the correct shape and firmness to provide a leak-proof fit. You will only be able to access these seals if you break the carbs out of their rack! (and if you do break the rack, you need to replace these seals). Aftermarket seals comes in your choice of either a lower-cost Buna-N material, or a longer-life Viton material. Either one will work just fine and last until the next time you take your carbs apart!

The viton material is much harder than the Buna-N material and the use of the viton seals requires quite a bit of effort to install the connector tube into the carb fuel port bores!

- Use 2 seals per tube, or a total of 6 seals per entire carb rack, for HSC32 series carbs (XJ650 except Turbo, 1981-83 XJ750 all models).

- Use 2 seals per tube, or a total of 10 seals per entire carb rack, for HSC33 series carbs (all XJ700 non-X and XJ750RL models). The same seals are used on both the fuel pipes and the carb overflow t-fittings.


NOTE: make sure you clean the internal bore cavity (where the fuel pipes fit into the carb body) very well, as that cavity accumulates quite a bit of debris and hardened fuel remnants over the years. Our HCP1409SS bristle-wire brush is the perfect tool for this job:

HCP1409SS Aftermarket STAINLESS STEEL WIRE-BRISTLE CLEANING BRUSH, 9.5mm diameter, great for the float valve seat threaded bore in all Hitachi carb bodies, and the fuel supply pipe bores within the carb body.
$ 6.95


Also, make sure that you do not "pinch" the o-rings as the tube is being inserted into the bores; some silicone grease or dish-washing soap on the o-rings will help avoid that problem.

HITACHI CARB STARTER - ENRICHMENT CIRCUIT - CHOKE SYSTEM PARTS:

The starter (choke) circuit is prone to a number of problems, from clogged passages in the starter jet (down in the bowl) to worn or fractured plunger valves and their related hardware. We've got some of those hard-to-find parts to properly restore your system.

The starter circuit PLUNGER VALVE is the solid brass, needle-tipped valve that actually shuts off or opens the enrichment circuit. Worn tips, gouged seats, or a fractured head renders these valves useless, or will cause them to constantly leak fuel, resulting in an overly-rich fuel mixture. These valves are SPRING-loaded, and retained in the starter valve port in the carb body by a threaded, hollow-center brass SEAT, which is then surrounded by a small rubber DUST CAP.


And if the threaded seat in the carb body where the plunger shaft brass seat screws into has been injured, or if you want to restore the threads to their like-new condition, this thread chaser tap is what you'll need:

HCP2401 THREAD CHASER AND CLEAN-UP TAP, made from a high-speed titanium nitride coated steel. For the following holes: Hitachi starter / enrichment circuit (“choke”) brass plunger seat bore hole.

HITACHI VACUUM DIAPHRAM AND PISTON ASSEMBLY:

fs5) OEM Hitachi HSC32 series carbs VACUUM DIAPHRAM AND PISTON ASSEMBLY, the slide piston with the non-detachable rubber vacuum diaphram seal. Although it is possible to repair thin spots and TINY pin-holes that occur in original diaphragms, anything greater than that will require replacement, as these diaphram are under a lot of pressure and stress and the continued flexing of the rubber will eventually lead to failure. Fits all XJ650 (except Turbo) models, and all XJ750 models. NOTE: HSC32 series carbs are used on all XJ650 (except Turbo) engines, and all XJ750 air-cooled engines except the 1984 XJ750RL engines.....which, along with the XJ700 air-cooled models, used the HSC33 series carbs.

NOTE: carbs that have been modified with aftermarket "jetting kits" may have had the air bleed holes in the bottom of the piston modified (enlarged), as that is what the jetting kit manufactures advise (and typically include a specific size drill bit in their kits). Larger air bleed holes in these pistons will cause them to rise quicker, thus richening the fuel mixture earlier in the rpm range. This is a modification that is not easily "un-done" on modified pistons. Stock bleed holes are about 1.70mm and 1.75mm in diameter on the HSC32 series pistons.

The long slinky SPRING provides the proper pressure and resistance to the movement of the piston unit under a variety of vacuum signal conditions, and modified, stretched, or damaged springs should be replaced. Ideally, all fours springs should be replaced all at once to insure equal response from each vacuum piston.

HCP8540 Aftermarket carb diaphram rubber RnR FLUID. Dissolved and chlorinated paraffin wax is the best (and perhaps the only) way to safely bring some life back into stiff, worn rubber material... such as that found in those all-important carb piston diaphragms. Years of hard life inside of your carb take their toll, and whenever your carb is apart for service, and generous application of this product will help to clean, maintain, and restore the flexibility, while prolonging their usable service life. 10cc dripper bottle contains enough fluid to do about eight diaphragms. Simple to use, spread on, wait a few minutes, wipe off, repeat and you're done!

fms76) Aftermarket Hitachi carb vacuum piston DIAPHRAM ONLY allows you to salvage your original pistons by replacing the rubber diaphragm. NOTE: the use of the any of the following vacuum diaphrams will require you to remove both the upper and lower plastic diaphragm “cinch” rings (with wire cutters, etc.) and carefully slide these new diaphrams over the top lip of piston and onto the “neck” of the piston (where those cinch rings used to sit). The diaphragm is held in place entirely by a tight friction fit. Installation instructions are included. These are a decent solution when you have missing, damaged, or leaky vac pistons diaphrams. NOTE: it is strongly suggested that all four original diaphrams are replaced (even if only one or two in your carb set are bad), as these new diaphrams will not provide exactly the same vacuum-regulated response as old, original diaphrams.

HITACHI CARB LOWER END PARTS:

AIR JET COVER PLATE:

Early Hitachi HSC32 series carbs (XJ650 except Turbo, 1981-83 XJ750 Maxim, Seca, and Euro models) have a crescent-moon shaped flat COVER PLATE over the air jets (top side of carbs, underneath the vacuum piston diaphragm). This plate and it’s special hold-down screw is not present on later versions of these carbs, and you will need to inspect your carbs carefully to see if the “third” (rear-most) hole in the air jet chamber is threaded to accept the hold-down screw (all of the Hitachi carbs have this hole drilled, but only those carbs that used the cover plate has the hole tapped/threaded to accept the cover plate and its hold-down screw).

Our re-plated Hitachi air jet COVER PLATE AND SCREW allow you to re-create the original look and beauty of these carb racks. These parts are available re-plated to their correct original yellow-zinc appearance. If you need to replace any missing hardware, or just want to create a show-winning look, then you should start your shopping list here! NOTE: all jet cover plates and screws are re-plated, used parts, and as such, may have minor cosmetic flaws (tooling marks, fastener marks, etc.). Most such marks will not be visible once installed. Also, all re-plated items require a refundable core charge which will be credited back to you once you return a same-model, same-type of item(s) as you purchased. Since these are re-plated used parts, we do require an exchange for your original parts so we can have a steady supply of parts to be processed and re-plated for future sales.

HITACHI MAIN AIR JETS:

The main air jets on all Hitachi HSCxx series carbs are located under the vacuum piston diaphram, and are a small, brass "headless" screw-in jet. On some model carbs, these air jets live under a small, curved flay metal "cover plate" which is retained by a special shouldered screw (most later-model Hitachi carbs seem to have dispensed with this air jet cover plate, although its threaded mounting hole still remains in the carb body).

Replacement Hitachi main air jets are now available for these model carbs, in both their original sizes and in optional "tuning" sizes for use with pod filters or other special tuning purposes.

NOTE: the Haynes workshop manual for the XJ650 and XJ750 models has the incorrect placement noted for these air jets----the main air jet and pilot air jets are reversed in their picture and caption. Just remember that the main air jet goes directly above the main fuel jet, and is thus located in the "center" of the three holes in this area:

Any of the fuel jet sizes can also be used for "tuning" or re-jetting purposes when changing intakes or exhaust systems.



NOTE: ensuring that your pilot fuel circuit is internally clear and free is one of the most difficult tasks to perform on these carbs due to its incredibly small size (so fuel varnish will accumulate and solidify in there over time):

http://www.xj4ever.com/inside your carbs.pdf

To make sure that your internal pilot fuel circuit is truly “zestfully clean” after your clearing efforts:

1. Drill out an old pilot fuel jet so that the straw from the carb cleaner fits snuggly in the hole (or some other suitable method of “sealing off” a straw into the pilot fuel jet passage where the jet screws into the carb body).
2. Leave the pilot air jet in, but block it off with a wooden q-tip that is covered with a bit of heat shrink tubing (or use your finger to firmly block it off).
3. Install the pilot screw without its o-ring, and set it to about 2.5 turns out from soft bottoming.
4. Blast the carb cleaner through the modified pilot jet and it should look something like this:



By the way, when using the spray-stream method of checking the passage, don't even THINK of putting your eye or face anywhere even NEAR the outflow path, unless you like a painful and potentially serious trip to the emergency room.

WHAT ABOUT RE-JETTING FOR PODS, ETC?:

Before we even start down this bumpy road, let's get this out of the way: changing the mufflers (only) will generally not require re-jetting, as the stock mufflers are pretty darn free-flowing as it is. The major airflow restrictions (by design) in these engines is on the INTAKE side (the airbox system and its pleated paper filter). Changing to a high-flow air filter (like a K&N) will definitely require increased fuel jet sizing.

That being said, all of these bikes were jetted a bit lean from the factory, in order to satisfy EPA emissions requirements of that era. So even a stock engine can benefit from slightly larger fuel jets; for example, a stock XJ650 non-Turbo USA model, increasing fuel jet sizes to #112 on the mains (from the stock #110 size) and to a #41 on the pilot (stock is a #40 size) can be beneficial. Note that the pilot jet size is not as critical as the main jet size, since the pilot circuit mixture screw allows you to “open up” the pilot circuit independent of the jet size.


But what about when you do make other intake/exhaust system changes? It's a question we get asked often and unfortunately, one that we cannot answer honestly about your specific bike besides with "it depends".

Which is a nice way of saying "you're about to enter the seventh circle of hell......."!

Carb jet tuning required by aftermarket modifications is somewhat of a black art, part science, part skill, part luck. It depends on the current state of tune of your engine, your altitude, the mix of aftermarket parts on your bike, etc........a lot of variables.

The best advice we can offer is: Just Say No!. Don't do it! Leave everything stock!

But, since most people---with good reason, I might add---don't always listen to our well-intentioned advice, then the next best recommendation we can offer is: "if you want more power get a bigger bike!".

And since that doesn't cut it with many owners, either, for the remaining stalwarts out there who insist on "experimenting" with aftermarket intake and exhaust systems, here's the best information that we've come across to give you some GUIDANCE, which you should take as just that, and not as ANSWERS, because it isn't!

Definitely not plug-and-play:



And some pod filters make a difficult situation even worse.........read all about it:

Yoji himself cautions against it:

Also, if you’ve ever wondered what the numbers on your jets refer to:

- on Hitachi fuel jets, the numbers refer to the actual physical size of the passage hole expressed in millimeters, i.e. a #114 fuel jets is 1.14mm in diameter, a #42 fuel jet is 0.42mm in diameter, etc.

- on Mikuni fuel jets, the numbers are a measurement of the volume (cc’s of gasoline) that will flow thru the jet when poured in from a height of 50cm.

- we do not know what air jet numbers refer to…….although we suspect it is a volume of air that can pass through the jet at some level of vacuum. Anyone who has insight into this issue please let us know more!



MAIN FUEL JET SIZE CHANGES NEEDED PER TYPICAL MODIFICATION:

Typical Exhaust Changes:

+2 main fuel jet size for custom 4-into-2 exhaust

or

+4 main fuel jet sizes for 4-into-1 exhaust

or

+4 main jet sizes for no muffler (open headers)


Typical Intake Changes:

+2 main fuel jet sizes for single K&N filter (inside a stock airbox)

or

+2 main fuel jet size for drilling holes in the airbox with stock filter

or

+4 main fuel jet sizes for individual pod filters (no airbox)


Additional changes:

- Add up all the main fuel jet size increases and subtract 2 sizes.

- Decrease main fuel jet size by 2 sizes per every 2000' above sea level.

- Under a mis-match condition, such as when using pod filters with a 100% stock exhaust, or 4-into-1 header with stock filter and air box, then subtract 2 main fuel jet sizes.



PILOT FUEL JET SIZES CHANGES NEEDED PER TYPICAL MODIFICATION:

Pilot fuel jet size changes are related only to the change in main fuel jet sizes according to the main fuel jet size formula described above. Note that this pilot fuel jet rule is for the main fuel jet size change BEFORE any main fuel jet altitude compensation is factored in:

Increase the pilot fuel jet size +1 for every +3 main fuel jet size increases.

Additional changes:

- Decrease pilot fuel jet size by 1 for every 6000' above sea level.



PRECAUTIONS:

- Make sure your carbs are in perfect working order before making ANY jet changes....meaning fully cleaned internally and rebuilt, operating properly in their stock configuration, proper sized air jets and needles, etc. Otherwise, you'll like find that all of your efforts are going to be a HUGE waste of time.

- Check plug color often and adjust as needed, 2 main fuel jet sizes at a time and 1 pilot fuel jet size at a time. Bright white plug insulators are a sign of an overly lean fuel mixture condition and WILL cause damage to your engine over time, up to and including engine seizure!

- Synch the carbs after each jet change.

- Make sure the floats are set correctly

- Seriously consider purchasing a Colortune Plug Tuning kit.

- You may find it necessary to make changes to the size or shimming of the main jet needle. There are no guidelines on what or how to do these changes, this is true trial-and-error tuning!



EXAMPLE:

A 1982 XJ750RJ Seca using an aftermarket Supertrapp 4-into-1 exhaust and a single K&N air filter in the stock, unmodified airbox. Bike is primarily operated at an altitude of 2600 feet above sea level.

XJ750 Seca Stock Hitachi HSC32 Carb Jetting:

#120 Main Fuel Jet
#40 Pilot Fuel Jet
#50 Main Air Jet
#225 Pilot Air Jet
Y-13 Needle


MAIN FUEL JET SIZE CALCULATIONS:

Changes made:

Exhaust:
4 into 1 with Supertrapp = +4 Sizes Main Fuel Jet

Intake:
K&N Pod Filters = +4 sizes Main Fuel Jet
----------------------------
Equals: +8 main fuel jet sizes above baseline
Subtract: -2 main fuel jet size per formula above
----------------------------
Equals: +6 main fuel jet sizes due to modifications, thus:

Stock main fuel jet size is: #120
+ 6 additional sizes
= a #126 main fuel jet size
---------------------------
Subtract: -2 main fuel jet sizes for Altitude of 2500' Average

= #126 calculated from above
-2 jet sizes for altitude adjustment

= a #124 main fuel jet size.


PILOT FUEL JET SIZE CALCULATIONS:

The formula is: +1 pilot jet size increase for every +3 main jet sizes increased.

Stock pilot fuel jet size is: #40
+ 2 additional jet sizes (since we went up +6 main fuel jet sizes before the altitude compensation was factored in):

= a #42 pilot fuel jet size.

Note that no altitude compensation is needed on the pilot fuel jet since our elevation is less than 6000' a-s-l.


------------------------------

RESULT:

A #124 Main and #42 Pilot is A GOOD STARTING POINT.

******************************************************

Note that the above calculations do NOT take into account any possible changes in the sizes of the main or pilot air jets, the main needle or main needle jet size, and thus are additional variables and opportunities for tuning excellence. These are areas which are largely unexplored by most tuners, but logically should allow for additional fine tuning or additional rage and frustration.........


Normally, changing to an aftermarket exhaust does NOT require re-jetting, (or minimal re-jetting) as almost ALL of the airflow restriction in the airflow path thru the engine (meaning: ATMOSPHERE > AIRBOX > FILTER > AIRBOX BOOTS > CARBS > INTAKE MANIFOLDS > CYLINDER HEAD PASSAGES > EXHAUST SYSTEM > BACK OUT INTO THE ATMOSPHERE) is within the intake side of this air flow path, and primarily within the stock airbox/air filter. Your stock EXHAUST system can already flow more air volume than the stock INTAKE system allows.

Thus changing only the stock EXHAUST system, with no changes to the intake side of the heads, normally makes NO DIFFERENCE IN TOTAL AIRFLOW, and "no difference in total airflow" means "no difference in TOTAL FUEL FLOW" either, and thus bigger jets are not needed.


But once you start freeing up the INTAKE side of the entire system, you will produce more system airflow, even with a stock exhaust system (because, the stock exhaust system has the capability to flow more air through it than what the stock intake system allows).

This is why re-jetting is usually needed even if you keep the stock airbox and the stock exhaust, but use a K&N low-restriction filter, or even if you drill holes in the stock airbox, or leave the filter lid off.

All such actions free up the intake side airflow restrictions; the stock exhaust will move this additional airflow, and without providing addition FUEL flow to match the increased airflow (within limits, an engine will gobble up the maximum amount of airflow that it can; an internal combustion engine is actually just a self-powered AIR PUMP) then the engine will run "lean"---meaning not enough fuel to match the amount of airflow that the engine can (and now will) gulp.

Most pod type filters allow for vastly increased airflow, and thus require fuel re-jetting, and although no one really talks much about it, probably also require AIR JET changes to match the additional fuel flow, but since no one likes to deal with two parameters at once, it becomes a "tuning nightmare".


BUT, when you read all of the common symptoms of people who use pods, you quickly come to the conclusion that it's not possible to reproduce the stock "smooth in all rpm ranges" engine response. The reality is that you SHOULD be able to match it pretty darn closely, even with the increased airflow through the system, but ONLY changing the fuel jets isn't going to accomplish that. There are also air jets in the system, and they are there for a reason, as well as needle tapers and vacuum piston responsiveness issues.


For further insights and understanding, the Holy Grail (meaning: the whole miserable, un-varnished truth of what a real chore carb tuning is going to be, written by people who actually know what they're talking about, rather than by people who are trying to sell you something) can be found at:

www.factorypro.com

and then click on the "Product Support/Technical Support" link at the top of the page, then on the "Motorcycle Tuning Tech" link, and then the "CV Carb Tuning" link........and then read, weep, study, and do....if you still dare to! HINT: if reading through it makes you think to yourself "sheesh, this sounds like an incredible amount of effort!", well, you're right! That's just some of the joys (and pitfalls) of getting to play "tuning engineer", which is what you're going to be doing. Yamaha probably has 10 of those types of guys on staff, and millions of dollars of test equipment, both physical and computer-aided, that allowed them to get the mixture settings just right---from an overall drivability AND power output standpoint----and now, since you're changing the airflow parameters thru the engine, you'll have to figure it all out "from scratch", but WITHOUT the benefit of 10 trained engineers and all that test equipment and experience.

That's why we warn you that setting up a bike for pods can be quite a bit of trial-and-error procedure. You can make the calculations according to what is shown in that guideline and then order the jets that the "formula" recommends, and that should serve as a good STARTING POINT............you may (or may not!) have to do more tuning and trial-and-erroring substitution of different jet sizes, etc. to get it performing to you satisfaction, with the recognition that you may ALWAYS end up with a situation that has some kinds of trade-offs.....lazy at the lower end but runs well at mid/upper-ranges, or runs well at the lower end but a "flat-spot" at some other rpm range, etc. Unfortunately there is no magic formula........you might want to read through the factorypro.com article that I list at the end of that section, and you will get a better understanding of what is involved to get the carbs set-up properly in a non-stock configuration.

As one of our favorite experts says about pod filters: "Get a Rubik's Cube instead.....it's less trouble and actually has an eventual solution!"


HITACHI MAIN FUEL JET NEEDLES:

Attached to the vacuum piston assembly is the MAIN JET NEEDLE, and as the vacuum piston is raised or lowered due to the vacuum signal through the carb throat, the main jet needle is raised or lowered into the brass emulsion tube (also described as the "main jet" or "power valve" in some technical literature). These jet needles control the overall fuel flow in the main jet circuit of each carb.

These precisely made aluminum replacement needles correctly replace worn, damaged, or incorrectly sized original needles in all Hitachi HSC32 or HSC33 series carbs. The needle "size" is inscribed on the shaft of the needle, just below the plastic head cap. Although all needles are interchangeable between any type Hitachi HSC32 or HSC33 series carb, their different "sizes" are designed to be used in specific applications as determined by factory design engineers.

However, as long as all four carbs on your bike are using the same size needle, you can swap needle sizes between different carbs. So, for instance, you can use the Y-20 size needle (XJ700 models using HSC33 series carbs) in an XJ750 engine (which normally used the Y-13 size needle in their HSC32 series carbs). This type of swapping of needles can be useful in situation where you may wish to fine-tune the fuel mixture in an engine, for instance when changing the air-flow through an engine using pod filters and/or aftermarket exhaust systems.

NOTE: original Hitachi main jet needles have a depression on the bottom of the plastic cap, and this should be oriented with the half-circle bump inside the diaphram.


Original main needle size configurations are as follows:

Y-10: used on all USA market XJ650 (except Turbo) models, 1982-84 XJ650 Canadian bikes, and 1982 XJ650 Euro (model 14R) carbs.

Y-11: used on all 1980-81 XJ650 Euro (model 4K0 and 4K1) and XJ650 Police (37G) carbs.

Y-12: used on all Canadian 1980-81 XJ650 Maxim, Midnight Maxim, and Canadian 1982 XJ650RJC Seca (non-yics) models.

Y-13: used on all USA market XJ750 (1981-83) models.

Y-14: used on all non-USA market XJ750 (1981-84, except XJ750RL and XJ750E-II) models and XJ750 Police (24L and 37H) models.

Y-17: used on all XJ750E-II models.

Y-18: used on all XJ750RL Seca models (1984) only.

Y-20: used on all XJ700 air-cooled models.

others: all other Y-xx size needles are used on other model Hitachi HSC series carbs, such as XV750, XV920, etc. models.


Original main needle size characteristics:

As noted previously, as long as all four needles are the same between all the carbs on your engine, you can swap around different sizes for "tuning" purposes. Although we have no guidelines nor experience available to assist you in your tuning exercises, we can offer these needle shape characteristics to help you in analyzing your needs. Be aware that the thickness of the needle at any position along its length determines the fuel flow through the main fuel circuit, and the rate of change of the needle thickness (the "taper" amount) determines when and how much the needle allows the fuel mixture to become leaner or richer.

- the Y-20 needles (XJ700 models) are "skinnier" at the bottom of their shaft than either the Y-13 (XJ750) or the Y-10 needles (XJ650). Thus the Y-20 needles are "richer" at higher rpm ranges than either the Y-10 or Y-13 needles.

- the Y-10 needles (XJ650 models) are "skinnier" at the bottom of their shaft than either the XJ750 Y-13 or Y-14 needles. Thus the Y-10 needles are "richer" than either the Y-13 or Y-14 needles, although the Y-20 (XJ700) needles are even richer, but only at wide-open throttle positions.

- the Y-11 needles (XJ650 Euro) are a bit leaner than Y-10 all the way through the rpm (needle position) range, especially at wide-open-throttle position. They are a bit richer than Y-13 needles, except at the wide-open-throttle position.

- the Y-13 needles (USA XJ750) are "richer" than the Y-20 needles (XJ700) throughout the rest of their overall length.

- the Y-14 needles (non-USA XJ750) are "richer" than the Y-13 needles (USA market XJ750) at 3/4-throttle positions and beyond; otherwise, almost identical to the Y-13 needle.

- the HCP20965 needles (custom) are the "richest" at all throttle positions except for the wide-open-throttle position characteristics of the Y-20 needles (XJ700).

- Summary: of all the stock needles, the Y-10 (XJ650) needles are, except for their lowest section, the "richest" stock needles available. The Y-20 (XJ700) needles are the "richest" needles available for their lowest section, but then quickly become the "leanest" needles past their lowest 1/3 range of length. The HCP20965 needles are the richest needles available at all throttle positions overall, and people who are running pods and other modifications on XJ700 and XJ750 engines may wish to keep this thought in mind when trying to tune their engines.


One last thought: remember than fuel system tuning is mostly an art, rather than a science. The different size needles can produce very differing characteristics on any given engine, not only due to their relative "richness" or "leaness" characteristics, but also their rate of richness or leaness at any given needle position, along with the differences in main fuel jet sizing.

HITACHI MAIN NEEDLE JET a/k/a EMULSION TUBE:

Called by a variety of names, the main fuel jet tube is technically known as the MAIN NEEDLE JET, although they also go by the name of "power valves", "emulsion tubes", or some choice four-letter words while you are trying to remove them from their bore hole in the carb body! These 2" long brass tubes have a series of very precise, very small holes that actually atomize the fuel from the main fuel jet around the jet needle, and are what provide the final, precise metering of the fuel mixture through the main jet.

Commonly clogged and dirty-filthy beyond belief, they are easy to damage while removing them or during the cleaning process. If the holes are enlarged, if the end of the tube (where the needle enters it) worn or egg-shaped, or if the threads in the jet end damaged, these nozzles should be replaced, or your bike will never run properly.

HITACHI FUEL INLET "FLOAT" VALVES:

Original and aftermarket FUEL INLET "FLOAT" VALVE UNITS and KITS are a critical item to replace when performing a carb rebuild. Worn or damaged float valve seats or needles will cause bowl overflow and carb "flooding", making it impossible to set the fuel levels and float heights correctly, and leading to dangerous and damaging fuel overflow issues.

NOTE on fuel inlet/float valve seats, filter screens, and needles:

- original fuel inlet - float valve brass seats had a fuel inlet boss (where the inlet filter screen sits) of either 5.10mm (and thus uses the HCP9855 flat screen) or a 6.57mm boss with a 7.30mm "capture lip" (and this style float valve seat uses the HCP869 domed screen).

- The HCP10 (OEM) kit comes with a screen. The screen boss on the seat is 5.10mm OD and it comes with the HCP9855 flat screen. The needle is the same length as, and is rubber-tipped, just like the original. The float valve seat washer is made of copper as original.

- The HCP18795 kits (aftermarket) comes without a screen. The screen boss on the seat is 5.10mm OD and it accepts the HCP9855 flat screen. The needle is the same length as the OEM needle and is rubber-tipped just like the original. The float valve seat washer is made of aluminum rather than copper.

- The HCP17176 kits comes without a screen. The screen boss on the seat is 6.57mm OD and it accepts the HCP869 domed screen. The needle is slightly longer than the OEM needle and is metal-tipped (rather than rubber-tipped like the original needle). The float valve seat washer is made of aluminum rather than copper. These metal-tipped needles are a desirable option for people who live in an area where there is a significant amount of E-85 (alcohol) fuel blended with the gasoline. Ethanol tends to soften and attack rubber products, including the rubber tip of the original style float needles, which can then cause the float valve unit to stick (closed) or leak fuel even when in the closed position.

- The HCP1 lower end kits contain the HCP18795 float valves (above) and thus come without a screen. The screen boss on the seat is 5.10mm OD and it accepts the HCP9855 flat screen. The needle is the same length as the OEM needle and is rubber-tipped just like the original. The float valve seat washer is made of copper as original.

- The HCP18210 lower end kits also contains the HCP18795 float valves (above) but they come with a screen. The screen boss on the seat is 5.10mm OD and it includes the HCP9855 flat screen. The needle is the same length as the OEM needle and is rubber-tipped just like the original. The float valve seat washer is made of copper as original.


NOTE: all of the float needles that have a rubber tip also use a retaining clip to secure the needle to the float arm. Please note that the clip can be installed in two different ways (orientations). User experience indicates that the clip should be positioned so that the "open" area of the clip (that part of the clip that snaps over the ridge on the top of the needle) should be oriented towards the "back" of the carbs; in other words, the open area of the clip should be towards the airbox.

By the way, the purpose of this clip is to prevent the rubber tip of the needle from "seizing" within the float valve seat (due to the rubber swelling), or fuel varnish forming around it (and "gluing" it to the brass seat). Since the clip is attached to the float, as the fuel bowl empties the weight of the float pulling down on the needle will tend to overcome any needle tip seizure and prevent that float valve from remaining closed, even as the float bowl empties of fuel.

Metal-tipped needles, although not original on Hitachi carbs, were used on many original Mikuni carbs. The metal needle tips are much less prone to tip seizure and thus metal-tipped needles do not need, nor use (or even accept) the needle retaining clip.


NOTE: on all of the float needles that use a central, spring-loaded "plunger" at the float end, please note that this plunger is designed to act as a "shock absorber" and is not normally depressed in normal operation, and the float heights and fuel levels should not be set with this plunger depressed. Doing so will result in a vastly incorrect fuel level setting and will lead to carb flooding.


QUESTION: does it matter which style fuel inlet - float valve seat/needle/etc. is used in your carbs?

ANSWER: Not really, although it's probably best (but not absolutely necessary) to make sure that all 4 carbs use the same style set-up. The installation of any replacement fuel inlet - float valve seats and needles will require checking and re-adjustment of the fuel level and float heights after installation. You should ALWAYS check and adjust your float levels anytime you go into your carbs----and periodically even if you don't! I know, it's a pain-in-the-tail light to adjust the float levels----but correct float levels really will insure that your bike performs at its best and will also prevent problems with carb flooding.


HELPFUL HINT: in many cases, a float valve brass seat may get small scars, burrs, or other deformities in the area where the rubber needle tip contacts the seat opening, and thus preventing the fuel flow from being completely shut off even when the bowl is full. Such minor flaws can sometimes be polished out with some very fine (600-grit or higher) polishing paper rolled up into a very tight "cigarette" and then moved back-and-forth thru the opening. Likewise, any flaws on the internal bore of the seat......where the needle slides.....can sometimes be polished away. You should inspect the seat and needle very carefully, under good light and with strong magnification, in order to inspect these crucial parts during any rebuild process, or if carb flooding is indicated.

And if the threaded seat in the carb body where the float valve seat screws into the carb body has been injured, or if you want to restore the threads to their like-new condition, this thread chaser tap is what you'll need:

Fits all Hitachi HSC32/33/40-series carbs.

NOTE: screens are not interchangeable between different style seats, since the style and diameter of the screen seat boss is different between each type of seat. Make sure that you properly identify which style seat you have before ordering replacement filters.

HITACHI CARBS LOWER END REBUILD KITS:

nn) Aftermarket Hitachi carbs LOWER END REBUILD KITS --- available in both a standard and deluxe version. Both kits contain the fuel inlet - float valve needle, float valve brass screw-in seat, the seat washer, and an standard bowl gasket. The standard rebuild kits feature a float seat that can use, but does NOT include, the seat filter screen. The deluxe rebuild kits contain the filter screens, already installed on the seats, and an aftermarket hi-performance bowl gasket.

NOTE: the float valve needle that comes with these sets are approximately the same height as a factory Yamaha needle, and it may not be necessary to re-adjust the float level height after installation, but for safety and performance reasons you should always check the fuel level after any carb work or parts replacement!

These lower-end kits contain just the basic parts you'll need if doing a quick carb re-fresh or fighting leaking fuel inlet ("float") valves. All kits fit all XJ650 (except Turbo), all XJ700 air-cooled models, and all XJ750 air-cooled models.

For complete carb rebuild kits, see further below for our partial or complete carb rebuild kits.

NOTE: kits that contain the original style rubber-tipped needles include the needle hanger clip. By the way, the purpose of this clip is to prevent the rubber tip of the needle from "seizing" within the float valve seat (due to the rubber swelling), or fuel varnish forming around it (and "gluing" it to the brass seat). Since the clip is attached to the float, as the fuel bowl empties the weight of the float pulling down on the needle will tend to overcome any needle tip seizure and prevent that float valve from remaining closed, even as the float bowl empties of fuel.

Metal-tipped needles, although not original on Hitachi carbs, were used on many original Mikuni carbs. The metal needle tips are much less prone to tip seizure and thus metal-tipped needles do not need, nor use (or even accept) the needle retaining clip.


NOTE: neither the lower end nor the complete rebuild kits include the mixture screw block-off plug, and you should consider ordering those when doing your carb service:

HCP7376 Aftermarket Hitachi idle mixture screw bore hole RUBBER PLUG, tapered design with mushroom head allows repeated removal and re-use. NOTE: may be a slightly loose fit on some models; if so, use a small amount of gasket or rubber adhesive to secure firmly in place (just a thin smear will do). Waterproof and dustproof design keeps the screw away from dirt and moisture, while also allowing for easy removal for tuning purposes. A much better solution compared to the original metal anti-damper plugs! Fits all Hitachi HSC32 and HSC33 model carbs as used on all XJ650 (except Turbo), XJ700 non-X, and all XJ750 air-cooled models. Each:

HITACHI CARBS COMPLETE REBUILD KITS:

Aftermarket Hitachi HSC-xx series carb REBUILD KITS--- available in a variety of versions, depending on how far you plan to go into your carbs.

Our partial rebuild kits contains the basic parts you'll need to do a carb re-fresh when you are not breaking the individual carbs off the rack....float valve seats, needles, and washers, as well as the mixture screw o-rings, washers, and springs, a bowl gasket and bowl drain screw.

The complete rebuild kits have all of those items along with all of the additional parts you'll typically need when doing a full rack teardown......throttle shaft seals, shims, clips, and screws, as well as the fuel supply tube o-rings.

The standard kits contain a die-cut paper bowl gasket and a brass straight-blade bowl drain screw, while the deluxe kits have the upgraded hi-performance bowl gaskets and allen-drive bowl drain screws.

Note that both style kits contain only the typical "wear items" (gaskets, rubber parts, etc.) and do not include any of the various "hard parts" that you may also discover you'll need (jets, emulsion tubes, needles, choke plungers, attaching screws or hardware, etc.) that you may need or desire once you dig into your specific set of carbs.

NOTE: the needle that comes with all of these sets are approximately the same height as a factory Yamaha needle, and it may not be necessary to re-adjust the float level height after installation, but for safety and performance reasons you should always check the fuel level after any carb work or parts replacement!


NOTE: kits that contain the original style rubber-tipped needles include the needle hanger clip.

Aftermarket Hitachi FLOATS, FLOAT PINS, AND SHIMS:

Unlike the Mikuni carbs, Hitachi carb FLOATS used a loose-fitting hinge PIN to secure the float to the cast float posts in the bottom of the carb body. Additionally, the formed "tube" that the float pin slides thru on the float bracket arm is somewhat "short" in overall length compared to the distance between the float posts, resulting in a float that typically has quite a bit of side-to-side "slop" in its motion and movement. This slop can allow quite a bit of erratic movement in the float on the pin, and can contribute to difficulties with getting the fuel level set properly and consistently on these carbs.

We offer some very precise SHIMMING WASHERS that allow you to take up this slack. Unfortunately, due to variations in the machining of the float post inside distance on various car bodies, there is no "one-size-fits-all" solution that we can offer as to what thickness shims are going to be correct to use. The best guidance that we can offer is that you want to eliminate equal amounts of slop on both sides of the float pin tube, while still allowing for enough clearance on both sides to eliminate any chance of the float binding on the pin.

Our research shows that a typical carb body will have float posts that have approximately an 18.10mm inside-to-inside distance, at the level where the pin goes thru the float posts. The pin tube on the float, however, is only about 17.05mm wide.......giving almost a total amount of "slop of 1.00mm between the pin tube and the float posts......note that this 1.00mm of slop is equally divided on both ends of the float pin tube, resulting in a clearance of approximately 0.50mm on each side of the pin tube.

Our thoughts and experience shows that you can safely reduce this clearance to 0.25mm per side.

FLOAT BOWL GASKETS:

OEM bowl gaskets are made from a graphite impregnated board material, while the standard-duty aftermarket gaskets are made from a treated fiber (cardboard) type material. We recommend the use of the aftermarket hi-performance gaskets which are designed to slightly swell in the presence of petroleum products (fuel or oil), thus creating a super-tight, leak-proof flange seal.

NOTE: if you use any type of sealant on these gaskets, use it on the BOWL side of the gasket (something like Permatex Copper Spray-A-Gasket is a fine choice). On the carb body side of the gasket, use a light oil....like Marvel Mystery Oil or the like....and barely moisten the gasket surface. This will allow the new gasket to soften slightly and allows the gasket to form itself to the raised mounting ridge that is cast onto the carb body mating flange.....and also allows for an easy, no-stick removal of the float bowl in the future!

g5) Aftermarket Hitachi carb BOWL DRAIN SCREW. Bright finish 18-8 stainless steel hex-drive, socket head, taper-point screw fits into the drain hole passage of each carb bowl. Works better than the original Yamaha screw; not only is it made of stainless steel, but the larger socket-head design allows for more torque to be applied to the screw, forever ending the stripped/stuck/ruined drain screw problem that has plagued Yamaha owners forever!

Note that by their design, the large socket head portion of this drain screw will be located OUTSIDE of the drain screw bore hole in the bowl, and sticks out about 1/4" from the bowl body. This additional length does not cause any problems, and after looking at them (installed) on the carb bowls, at first glance they might look "odd" the way the stick out, but after the third or fourth look, they appear normal and oddly interesting with that extended length.

NOTE: do NOT "bottom" the heads of these screws against the bowl! Tighten them to 4-5 foot-pounds of torque, just enough to seat them snugly. That is all that is necessary to prevent fuel leakage from the drain port.

Fits all XJ650 (except Turbo) models, all XJ700 non-X, and all XJ750 models using the Hitachi HSC32 or HSC33 series carbs, as well as all Hitachi HSC40 series carbs used on various XV700, XV750, XV920, and XV1000 Virago models.

Anti-Seize Lubricants:

xx1) Fastener ANTI-SEIZE PASTE. Yeah, it's smelly and makes a slippery mess on your fingers, but this stuff is a life-saver for any true wrencher, because it prevents problems down the road. Use it on any metal fastener that does not require a "loctite" thread-locker material to be used. This means on just about every fastener that is carb, engine case, or suspension-related! (except for carb upper and lower rack-mount screws and butterfly valve screws, which do require the use of a thread-lock fluid). If you think that it might, sometime, in the future, need to come off: use anti-seize compound! NOTE: the "base" metal material used in the different anti-seize pastes below do not determine what type of fastener to use such pastes on; it merely signifies what base material is used to create the anti-seize paste. You can use any "base-metal" anti-seize paste on any type of fastener and metal.

NOTE: the use of anti-seize compounds will result in a TORQUE-MULTIPLYING EFFECT……..the result of a reduction in friction between the threaded contact points……and thus fasteners treated with anti-seize compound should have their torque values reduced by at least 10-15% when installed into steel material, and up to 25% into aluminum materials or other “soft” metals” (such as spark plugs into cylinder heads, or almost any other type of fastener into the engine) …… note that this rule applies only to service manual torque specifications on fasteners that are not indicated to be treated with anti-seize fluid by the factory …. if the factory manual specifies the use of an anti-seize coating, then the specified torque value for that fitting already takes into account the “reduced torque” necessary.

HITACHI CARB HARDWARE KITS:

chk1) While you’re completing your carb rebuild efforts, you’ve probably noticed that many of the fasteners and associated hardware pieces are buggered, rusty, incorrect, or worse. Since your carbs will soon be performing as new, why not make them look like new, too? These HITACHI CARB FASTENERS KITS and HITACHI CARB HARDWARE KITS contain all of the major external hardware or fasteners needed to refresh them like a pro, and at an affordable price.


Hitachi Carb Fasteners Kits:

These fastener kits contain all of the major and minor fasteners that you’ll need to refresh a set of carbs, and are available in a variety of material and finishes to suit your particular preferences. NOTE: throttle shaft hardware (butterfly valves screws, shaft end clips, etc) and bowl drain screws are not included in any of these kits, since those items are already contained in the various carb rebuild kits listed previously.

Each kit contains the following items in matching finishes and head styles:
* matched assortment of carb “hat” screws, lockwashers, and a flat washer.
* matched assortment of carb bowl-to-body screws and lockwashers.
* matched assortment of carb upper rack bracket screws, lockwashers, and a flat washer.
* matched assortment of carb lower rack bracket screws and lockwashers.
* matched set of starter shaft retaining screw and lockwasher.
* matched set of starter plunger bracket-to-shaft set screws.
* an idle speed screw plastic washer (not original, but a great addition to have!)

And since you'll want your new hardware to not only look nice, but fit well, the following professional quality tool-steel thread chaser taps will allow you to either "clean-up" or re-thread distorted or stripped threads in all metals, soft (aluminum) to hard (steel).

NOTE: THE FOLLOWING TOOL KITS ARE AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL!!: some tools are a one-time or infrequent use tool, so it may be more economical for you to rent them from us, rather than to purchase outright. Please see the “rental” section within the THE TOOLBOX section of our catalog at:

and review the availability and procedures in the TOOL RENTAL section.

HCP28194 Aftermarket carb body THREAD CHASER BASIC TAPS SET. This basic set of 6 taps contains all of the different sizes for the most commonly needed threaded holes on all Hitachi and Mikuni carb bodies. Almost all threaded will exhibit some type of thread wear (distortion) or minor injury that should be repaired, especially to the smaller, more “fragile” threads on the mixture screw bores, the fuel and are jets threads, the bowl, hat, and bracket mounting holes, etc. Running thread taps thru all of these threaded holes in the carb bodies will not only make the re-assembly process easier, smoother, and more secure, but there is a certain satisfaction and surety that comes with having like-new threads that can only be described as “machinist porn” (those of you that know, will know what I mean!). Correct size taps will do the upper and lower rack bracket holes, the float bowl attachment holes, the float bowl drain screw holes, the carb hat attachment holes, synch screws and idle speed bolt holes, the Mikuni float valve seat bracket hole, Mikuni main jet needle retainer plate holes (inside the vacuum piston), all air jet and fuel jet holes, enrichment plunger lifter bracket holes, and throttle shaft butterfly valve mounting holes. Comes with a can of cutting fluid and a t-handle tap holder tool. Note that unlike the complete taps set below (HCP28121), the taps for the Hitachi float valve seat and the choke plunger seat bores (on all Hitachi and Mikuni models) are not included in this set (those larger taps are what add significantly to the cost of the complete taps set). NOTE: due to the reality that you may use these tools only once, it is suggested that you use the tool rental option for this tap set. However, under the rental option, if you use the taps for actual thread tapping (cutting brand new threads in a newly drilled hole), then the return option is not allowed!
$ 99.95

HCP28121 Aftermarket carb body THREAD CHASER COMPLETE TAPS SET. This complete set of 9 taps contains all of the different sizes of threads found on all Hitachi and Mikuni carb bodies.

Correct size taps will do the upper and lower rack bracket holes, the float bowl attachment holes, the float bowl drain screw holes, the carb hat attachment holes, synch screws and idle speed bolt holes, the choke plunger seat holes, the Mikuni float valve seat bracket hole, the Hitachi float valve seat hole, Mikuni main jet needle retainer plate holes (inside the vacuum piston), all air jet and fuel jet holes, enrichment plunger lifter bracket holes, and throttle shaft butterfly valve mounting holes. Comes with a can of cutting fluid and a t-handle tap holder tool. NOTE: due to the expense of this kit, and the reality that you may use these tools only once, it is suggested that you use the tool rental option for this tap set. However, under the rental option, if you use the taps for actual thread tapping (cutting brand new threads in a newly drilled hole), then the return option is not allowed!

Hitachi Carb Brackets Kits:

Kick it up a notch (or two)……..heck, kick it up to an 11 with these carb bracket kits which contain beautifully re-plated original major and minor brackets, hose clips, and more. Kits vary from model to model in their contents. NOTE: most of the pieces in these kits are re-plated, used parts, and as such, may have minor cosmetic flaws (tooling marks, fastener marks, etc.). Most such marks will not be visible once installed. Also, all re-plated items require a refundable core charge which will be credited back to you upon the return of all of the same-model, same-type kit contents. Since these are re-plated used parts, we do require an exchange for your original parts so we can have a steady supply of parts to be processed and re-plated for future sales.

HCP23820 Aftermarket HSC32 series HITACHI CARB BRACKETS KIT features a complete set of new or re-plated original brackets listed below. Fits all 1980-81 XJ650 Maxim carbs with the short style lower rack bracket and some 1982 XJ650RJ Seca models with the short style lower rack bracket ---- the short style bracket has a small, “split loop” where the idle speed control bolt passes tightly thru it, whereas the “long” style bracket has a larger, “full-circle loop” where the idle speed control bolt passes thru it, and the long style bracket requires the use of the HCP9849 rubber grommet within the loop (or else the idle speed bolt will flop around loosely inside the loop). Please check your original lower bracket to properly identify the “short” vs. “long” style lower bracket, and many 1980-81 models and 1982 XJ650RJ Seca models could have used either the short or long style bracket. NOTE: requires a $ 125.00 core charge, refundable upon the return of all undamaged, same-model, same-type kit contents.

HITACHI CARB HAT HARDWARE:

Hitachi Carb Hat Brackets:

Our re-plated Hitachi diaphragm cover SHAFTS AND BRACKETS allow you to re-create the original look and beauty of these carb racks. These parts are available re-plated to their correct original yellow-zinc or black-zinc appearance. If you need to replace any missing hardware, or just want to create a show-winning look, then you should start your shopping list here! NOTE: all carb hat brackets and hardware are re-plated, used parts, and as such, may have minor cosmetic flaws (tooling marks, fastener marks, etc.). Most such marks will not be visible once installed. Also, all re-plated items require a refundable core charge which will be credited back to you once you return a same-model, same-type of item(s) as you purchased. Since these are re-plated used parts, we do require an exchange for your original parts so we can have a steady supply of parts to be processed and re-plated for future sales.

HCP9849 Aftermarket Hitachi idle speed screw rubber GROMMET, fits into the lower carb rack bracket opening where the idle speed screw enters the bracket. This replacement grommet is quite a bit larger than the stock grommet, but fits and works properly. Use a little bit of silicone grease on the screw's shaft where it passes through this grommet and it will be silky-smooth in operation. Fits all XJ650 (except Turbo) with the "long" idle speed bolt bracket, all XJ700 non-X, and all air-cooled XJ750 models using Hitachi carbs. NOTE: all 1980 and some 1981 XJ650 models used a lower rack bracket with "short" idle speed bolt guide bracket. This "short" bracket can be identified by a "split" in the loop which the idle speed adjustment bolt passes through. Most 1981-84 XJ650 models used a "long" style lower rack bracket, and this style bracket can be identified by a fully closed "loop" where the idle speed adjustment bolt passes through it and the use of a rubber grommet. The early style "short" guide bracket does not use a grommet around the idle speed adjustment bolt. This replacement grommet replaces the original grommet on the late style "long" guide bracket.

Hitachi Carb Lower Rack Bracket Fasteners:

e7) Aftermarket Hitachi carb lower rack bracket MOUNTING SCREW. These replacement screws are used in every position of the lower rack bar to mount the carbs. Use 8 of these screws per rack.

NOTE: originally, these screws were a natural finish (except for Midnight Maxim models, which were black), panhead phillips-drive style with a captive lock washer. Current OEM screws and all aftermarket screws do NOT have an integral lock washer and the lock washer must be ordered separately from the choices listed further below.

Also, please note that these screws were originally installed (and should be re-installed) with a low-strength thread locking fluid applied. Therefore, these screws may be VERY difficult to remove and it is highly recommended that you obtain the correct size JIS style screwdriver (or an impact driver) to remove them without stripping the slots.

And if the threaded port in the float bowl where the drain screw fits been injured, or if you want to restore the threads to their like-new condition, this thread chaser tap is what you'll need:

HCP2399 Aftermarket THREAD CHASER AND CLEAN-UP TAP, made from a high-speed titanium nitride coated steel. For the following holes: all Hitachi carb bowl drain screw port.
$ 12.95

HCP28170 Aftermarket thread tap or EZ-out extractor TAP HANDLE, featuring offset tap handles and fully adjustable head for all m3-m12 size taps and size 0 to ½” extractors.

Much better than using pliers or vise-grips to hold the tool……..

g5) Aftermarket Hitachi carb BOWL DRAIN SCREW. Bright finish 18-8 stainless steel hex-drive, socket head, taper-point screw fits into the drain hole passage of each carb bowl. Works better than the original Yamaha screw; not only is it made of stainless steel, but the larger socket-head design allows for more torque to be applied to the screw, forever ending the stripped/stuck/ruined drain screw problem that has plagued Yamaha owners forever!

Note that by their design, the large socket head portion of this drain screw will be located OUTSIDE of the drain screw bore hole in the bowl, and sticks out about 1/4" from the bowl body. This additional length does not cause any problems, and after looking at them (installed) on the carb bowls, at first glance they might look "odd" the way the stick out, but after the third or fourth look, they appear normal and oddly interesting with that extended length.

NOTE: do NOT "bottom" the heads of these screws against the bowl! Tighten them to 4-5 foot-pounds of torque, just enough to seat them snugly. That is all that is necessary to prevent fuel leakage from the drain port.

Fits all XJ650 (except Turbo) models, all XJ700 non-X, and all XJ750 models using the Hitachi HSC32 or HSC33 series carbs, as well as all Hitachi HSC40 series carbs used on various XV700, XV750, XV920, and XV1000 Virago models.
