I finally started to work on the yzf.
Image
One of the things that had been bugging me was the dynojet kit. The DJ kit requires that you block the main air jet by hammering in a small brass plug and then use a much smaller main jet. I had previously tried to remove the plugs with no luck. Since the crashed motor I bought came with stock carbs (in crappy condition) I figured I could try harder to remove the plugs because if I messed up the carbs, I had a spare set. I blocked off all the carb openings and used a tiny extractor and was successful in removing the plugs. Unfortunately since I neglected to drain the carbs 2 years ago I will be cleaning them now.

When I purchased the crash motor from a friend of a friend x 2, I had hoped to just swap engines, too bad for me that the 1 & 4 cyl dripping oil out of the exhaust. The plan then became to only use the cases from the crash engine and put the 'gut's from the known good engine that had been dropped, breaking off the rear engine mounts.
I started to take the crash engine apart,

Oil soaked pistons,

The cams are weird. The exhaust cam seems quite worn and the intake quite new. The cam followers also did not look right.

The bottom end feels very smooth. I now need to get my mic & gauges out of storage & shipped to me so I can inspect the parts.
My new plan is to use the head, cylinder, & pistons from the bad case engine. The problem with that is those parts are from a Cal bike and have the air injection ports on the head. Also Cal bikes might have different cams.
Anyways I can get the tank cleaned out & get the carbs set up using the leaky engine (there are actually 3 engines in this story).
The bike also needs a good cleaning since it was coated in chicken grease fumes before I rode it home in the rain 2 years ago.
