This is for a Kwak triple  but the principles of adjustments and setting up are the same for our bikes,  There is everything you want to know here

Yes, interesting but, it is for Kwakers and some of the info is misleading for RD250/350/400.  The Yamaha RD manual is first reference, then the MIKUNI TUNING MANUAL FOR VM CARBS, is also better than some of the info.  Remember that a standard bike should just need setting to standard, although that can mean troubleshooting as well. ;)    Just my opinion

this is the gen mikuni vmmanual for download

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

Thanks Merv. :)  Remember folks, the data in the RD manual for your bike is the best for a standard bike.  The Mikuni manual is very good extra info.
