    Woops! I got everything from jetskiplus last time.
    D-plate......https://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamaha-Cata...edirect=mobile

    And carb kits....https://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamaha-Trip...edirect=mobile then buy needle and seat seperately if you need them. 4 out of 5 times I don't need needle valves.

    Good people to deal with and good customer support too.

    Forgot to add.....do yourself a favor and reuse your stock needle arms and springs.

    ...unless you're lowering popoff, then you would need to change the springs.

    Look inside the pipe when you take it off it either has a D plate or a cat, unless one of these clowns around here has been into it, I have pulled several apart that had neither, you leave the sensor wire in the middle of the exhaust unplugged and plug the chip in where the sensor wire used to go.

    My site isn't used for much anymore so I mostly use it to store information so I never have to look for it again, follow the link , the links database there has a lot of stuff I have sourced over the years

    Ok I'm full go on this now. What am I missing to get this part off? I took the two bolts out that hook to the block for the lower support and the two on top.

    hey lakeside8,
    did you get the exhaust off? I just did a D plate conversion on my 2000 1200XLT.
    in addition to the front coupling (above the carbs), you need to loosen the flexible coupling where the exhaust above the engine connects through the hull wall to the rear exhaust members.
    There are also some bolts "down and to the right" of the images you shared - at the rear end of the 3 cylinders.

    I have the same starting issue. starter fluid required every time it hasn't been run for a bit. but once it's going, all that day will start fine during all the turning on and off that happens on a typical day.
    I'm not anxious to wrestle with that exhaust again.
    do the cylinder heads have to come off to get to the carbs?

    I'm definitely interested in doing this.
