Raptors Spitting the Carbs off of the boots

Hi guys/gals,
I am a newbie to this site.
Was wondering if any of you Raptor owners have had the Carbs pop off of the boots yet?

Mine has not done it yet. But i did read a review of the Raptor either in DirtWheels, 4-Wheel ATVAction, or it was on this site, where it happened to them, and they said there tech dept would be coming out with a fix soon. I just can't remember where i read it at.

Re: Raptors Spitting the Carbs off of the boots

I had it happen last weekend and apparently it has been happening at a low rpm when your just chuggin along. That's when it happened to me, almost ruined my weekend. It's really hard to see the problem until you strip it down. I spoke with one of the mechanics at my Dealer and they have had a few come in with the problem. There is a stand-off between the screw and nut in the clamp that prevents you from tightening the boot down to the Carb. They have been grinding that standoff down the get a tighter fit.

They also suggested adjusting the idle mixture to keep it from happening. Right side carb is adjusted to 2 1/2 turns out and the left to 3 turns.

Hey, RaptorRick it has never happened to mine, but i want to fix it so it never does. When they come off does the machine stop, or start running funny? Is it both the boots from the air filter or is it the boots to the head? Did you grind your standoff down? Did it work? Sorry for all the questions I just want to fix it so it never happens to me. Thank you for the help WildRaptor

I just came from Yamaha and they said that they were told to just grind off the spacer (acording to factory)

Do you mean Yamaha the manufacture, told Yamaha the dealer to grind off the spacers? Do you know which boots are able to blow off? I want to fix mine before they blow off.
Thanks for your help Jake

WildRaptor,
When it happened to me last weekend the Raptor was a dead player. Pretty embarrasing to have to have your wife on her Raptor, tow you back to camp. It never seems so far away until you have your "Old Lady" shootin sand in your face all the way back.
I would also suggest a 15-20 foot tow strap, the 6 footer I had was no fun.

Obviously with a major vacuum leak that, it wouldn't even fire up.

Wildman,
It is the Boots between the Head and the Carbs.
