what do you do with the return hoses ?( i got a cx500c)
Excellent info. I havnt gotten to the starting up stage of my rebuild yet, but i noticed these ports when making some bell mouth filters a while back and made sure to cut notches in them to avoid blocking these ports. thanks for confirming that it was a good idea guys!
My CX runs great with K&N air filters with 90/120 jets & 2 into 1 exhaust system. Have to admit, Murray's Mikinui Carb kit runs stronger, but I'm OK with the performance of the original carburetor.
Would this be the same filters others are using just a newer part number? https://www.mikesxs.net/yamaha-xs650...ter-2-1-8.html
So from what I have researched If I want to change to just pods and remove my air box with stock carbs I need to re-jet my carbs. 90/120 anyone have a link to buy just these jets without buying a whole dealers kit?

No more stable, no more ride for me.

Cool Murray, did not know that. I'm running MikesXS filters now, but my bike is always garaged, so I haven't gotten any rust yet. I will keep your filters in mind if I ever decide I'm sick of the "XS" logos on them...
