    Silver spring 115 g for 55. Use only genuine Mikuni parts made by Mikuni if the box doesn't say Mikuni and a have Mikuni's logo do not use them. 115 g used to be gold silver now .

    There are two different silver color springs maybe someone has some gold color 115 g springs left over I don't know. If you have the correct 115 g spring and 1.5 needle and seat you should have at 55 pop off . If not you have other issues leaking car body etc.

    Where would it be leaking? Ive help had it hold pressue at 20 psi with no drop. I have tried every spring I have and cant get above 35 . I was told on another fourum to streach the spring untill i get what I need . This is being crazy frustrating and I cant find anyone near me that works on these carbs,.

    I don't know why you have this problem ether. I do strech and cut my spring a bit - not too much to get psi that I want. Try holding down the needle with your finger to see for leaks. Try to strech the crap out of one of the springs that you don't need to see if you can get the higher psi reading. Also check that needle is in good condition without s groove in the head. If all that fails then it makes me believe that it is something wrong with your pop-off gauge. BTW I use the portable air tank and using on/off vent to control air - much easier that using a pump.

    You would think after 4 years you could tune a carb.

    Do as Firebird suggested and stretch one of your old Springs just to see. I believe you just have the wrong Springs. Order some new 115 grams from Protec Yamaha $3 a piece. 1.5 needle and seats with 115 grain Springs gives everyone I've seen 55 PSI. Did you or someone been the spring arm too much?

    Mikuni Springs 115 95 80 65gr from left.jpg

    Old Gold 115gr Spring is now Platinum color, not to be confused with Dull Silver 95 gr or Shiny Silver 65gr Springs.

    Notice the height or length difference; the 115 gr springs are the tallest/longest...
