3XV / Re: 94 SP oil pump and zeeltronic

.. I wouldn't worry. Famous last words !!!!

Haha yeah, it would maybe probably most likely could be OK  ;D Would bother me too much though... :))

The spool type later R/RS would probably be OK, doubt yamaha would have made a new pv spool for them. The spr and 3xvB is outta luck though.

That said though Yuri pointed out that the 3xv7 still has the mechanical pump. It also has the guillotine valves so in theory if you can source a 3xv7 pv motor then you'd be good. Hens teeth and all though..

lumicufi - I've been working on my 3xv1 since April. It is frustrating that no English version of the service manual exists. But, I've found that by using the exploded drawing from those who sell Parts, such as Megazip, along with the Japanese manual, you can make sense of how the carbs and lines go together. There's also a parts list here on the website.

Concerning your carbs: Be very deliberate when hooking them up. They look the same, but are very different inside. If you've dissembled your carbs, even the float bowls are different. I found that it is easier to decode the differences with the parts drawings. Here's the carb page from Megazip. All these drawings and lists from various sources are from Yamaha.

The cables are complicated, but the manual does show proper layout. There are 4 cables linked together. Two must be hooked to the individual carbs and two to the oil pump. Those cables will fall naturally into place if the main cable linkage is positioned per the manual. Again, be deliberate. The oil pump is of particular concern. As one pushes, while the other pulls. The one that pulls goes into the top mount on the pulley.

This is a great time to lube all the cables and the spot where they attach to the slides and pulleys.

There are many here on the forum with far more knowledge. Perhaps they know of a better way to explain this all to you.

Many thanks, Yorkee. I'm tempted, but don't need the entire front end.

I was actually trolling to find someone who had maybe bent one of his fork and didn't have use for the internals. Of course, I don't wish harm to anyone or his bike, but S**t happens. (If anyone needs a keyed ignition lock and gas cap, I'd be glad to help out.) My wish is probably a dead end, as all these discontinued parts are very valuable.

I really do appreciate your feedback. Yes, SP forks would be great, but I'd probably go Maxton or K-Tech if I had the bucks.

Shiny side up.

You need the throttle cable from the earlier models that doesn't have the electronic oil pump. From a 91 or 92 it has the extra cable to run the oil pump.
The different throttle cable also has the extra cable to go to the PV pulley that keeps the oil pump open when the throttle is shut but the PV's are still open, i.e. high revs but closed throttle. Not sure there is the facility to actually connect this extra cable to anything on the oil solenoid bikes, if you are trying the conversion

wish I see this earlier.   Just spent $150 on the pump without proper cable  :'(

creating my own is probably out of question giving the complexity mentioned.  Now I gotta hunt for early throttle cable...

I have the whole set of fork and triple sitting in my basement that has been waiting to go on ebay.  I located on your neighbor state you might be close enough to drive couple hrs to meet!

Honestly, if you can find sp/spr forks and triple, that's a much better bet.
