Carbs leaking @ thottle plate shaft
As the title says. I discovered the leak while cleaning the carbs. I've been having lean issues about 1/4 throttle and think I've found the problem. After spraying the throttle plate with carb cleaner, I dried it with compressed air and had a lot of bubbles coming through the shaft on the outside.
I can't find the seals though. The exploded parts diagram does not show the shafts and plates removed and I can't get a part number. The yamaha dealer near me couldn't find any seals. I've been told to replace the carbs unfortunately. Is this true or do I have other options? I tried to pull one of the shafts to check out the seals, and getting the plate out unharmed seems like a bear.
