Im trying to get my hands on a new float bowl. Mine has a pretty messed up screw on the bottom. It works. But i do plan on selling it in the future and dont wanna be an asshole and sell something crappy looking.

Does anyone know if the carburetor on a Yamaha TTR225 is the same as the XT?
As far as i can tell theyre the same bike but the xt is street legal.
Anything helps.

Looking at parts fiche, the carbs are noticeably different. It might functionally work, but it's not the same carb. You might also look for yamaha ATV's that have the same engine.

What's wrong with the float bowl? If it's just the screws, replace them with M4 socket head cap screws. Most hardware stores will have them.

Thats what i was wondering. Thanks for the response.

Nothing is wrong with the actual float bowl. Just the fuel vent screw is a little stripped. I am able to get it out if need be.

What do you mean exactly by fuel vent screw? Do you mean the screw that lets fuel drain out of the float bowl?

In any case, go here https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/oem-parts/Yamaha

Put in the year of your bike and look at the carburetor diagram. They can get you the OEM Yamaha part you need.

Yes, if it's the bowl drain in the bottom, you might need a new bowl. The drain screw is a metal/metal seal. The taper on the screw seals against a mating taper in the bowl. If this as has been overtightened and buggered up, you'll have to polish any imperfections on the sealing surface in the bowl, which isn't real easy.

OEM parts are still mostly available. Rocky Mountain ATV, RonAyers, and BikeBandit are common sources. Unfortunately I don't see the just the bowl available as a separate part so you may have to go the salvage yard route to find one, if you need it.

right right. No, the inside of the drain screw is completely fine. Its just the outside. And i know a lot of people care about stuff like that. For me, it works and only the head of the screw is mucked up.
Thanks, mates.

It sounds like you only need a new drain plug.
part # 12r-14191-00-00 they are about 7 bucks, I know ,a lot for a screw but still cheaper than a float bowl.
