i just bought a 1990 Yamaha Phazer. The other day it wouldnt start. i got it to start by putting gas in the spark plug hole, however, it idles at 5000rpms. does anyone know what the problem could be cause i really dont want to take apart the carbs if it something else. also, it has picks in the track that are bent. they are not perpendicular to the track anymore. should i take them out before they tear or will they not get any worse? any info would be appreciated. thanks

When I pulled apart my '86 Phazer this summer and put it back together, it idled at about 4000 or so when I started it. It didn't make any sense because I didn't change anything involved, but I solved it by lowering the adjusting screw on the carb end of the throttle cable. Before you do this, tho, make sure the cable is seated properly in the throttle lever and in the adjusting screw at the carb.
As for the studs, it sounds like there's not enough of them (or the track is shot). Either pull the studs out or add more so there's less stress on each individually.

i could try that but why would it all of a sudden rev so high? i had it running this year several times and it ran great. is there anything else that would cause it to do this? as for the picks i should just take them out? should i do anything with the holes left? thanks

Yup, that's exactly what I thought about mine. Blows my mind, but it's fine now, so I'm just ignoring it.

I've never heard of anyone doing anything with the holes after pulling studs.

It's a good idea to melt the hole again to seal in the cords so they don't start ripping.
