Of course, but you need to add a bit of pipe to the adjuster to give a better bang.  :)

I usually use a micrometer to check the sizes as the etched numbers are not always exactly correct.

what you are doing will never work since your are trying to get a signal "OUT" of an "IN" port.

It requires a special cable with a Sony unique plug to plug into the Sony unique PS2 "AV1 RGB" port. that will give you your Sound and video out.

Download the service manual from her http://foc-u.co.uk/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=31 and decide then if you have the ability to do it yourself.

Just make sure the area you are using it in, is rough and spotless. Great stuff.

I am not a believer in LocTite, but there is one and one only acceptation for me, the infamous front sprocket nut (12mm), along with a new sprocket washer each time it comes off.
LocTite 620 is what Yamaha recommend.
If that bad boy comes undone it can throw you up the road big time if the chain jams up in the engine area   :eek  , whilst fucking the output shaft big time, I'm told it is a complete engine strip down to replace it, or weld the nut to the shaft at the risk of cooking oil seals.
Cheerful little soul aren't I ?    :rolleyes 



There is another way to solve it and does not require stripping or welding  :eek :)

Well my new filter arrives tomorrow and I will fit that first see how things go before checking other things. I have a Haynes workshop manual so will reference that when checking the electrical stuff. You might be right about the air filter being the source, I bought a new one couple of weeks ago a DNA filter but didn't realise it was a high performance one something like 60% more air intake and with the bike being restricted it didn't like it too well lots of lurching and exhaust popping I then removed that and put the old air filter back in when I got a new battery a few days ago and that's when my starting/running problems came back the old battery was basically dead so that was the reason then, but with me having put the old air filter back in I've likely reintroduced the same problem. I changed plugs/carb rubbers and air filter all at once and it ran great but with the minor lurches and bad fuel/air ratio. Will take your advice on focusing 1 thing at a time.


*EDIT: It's a stock air filter I've bought this time

Once the filter is in place I would recommend you put the carb screws back to standard, I believe they're 2.5 turns out.
You need to start in the right place otherwise you'll get into a bit of a mess.

Its a 00-01 model 2 turns out

I must admit I like the sound turned on so I can hear the instructions through my ear phones whilst ride, I find it save having the bother of having to have my eyes open to look at the Sat Nav, or, ahead for that matter as I ride ride.
Easy


We know Tommy you just like Women telling you what to do  :pokefun :lol :lol

Now I'm a bit younger than a lot of you guys so I've pretty much always driven in the Sat Nav age and as such all my cars have had them built in and like robbo I often use it to gauge bends on unfamiliar roads and I find it helps massively.

By road signs I was referring to the ones that show you a left then right coming up and then on the bend its self there are chevrons and the amount of chevrons tells you how sharp the bend is.     

Hi Fazersharp
You have never been to Ireland then ??? :lol :lol :lol

Wow,I'm taking a caning over this :) . Look out for a Garmin in the For Sale section :lol . I've obviously given the impression that I'm riding around staring at a satnav. In evaluating the usefullness of this gadget on a foreign trip,bearing in mind I've ridden for almost 55 years without one,so must have been doing something right. It efficiently got me across a few towns and a city where I've encountered diversions etc in the past. The ability to have the speed displayed in kph was handy for obvious reasons,as well as being able to locate petrol stations when out in the sticks,more for my pals benefit than mine. Lastly,as an aside, I felt that to have the knowledge that an up coming blind bend on an unfamiliar road is going to be 180° is no bad thing,in my view.

No one is caning you Robbo, but remember the Sat Nav only needs to be wrong once  :'( No one is doubting the efficiency of the unit, but they can be wrong. I have used them on occasions but generally on holidays I don't bother just because I have had so much fun without it.  :lol The GPS on the phone works fine for me if I ever need it.

I have ridden with people who use them all the time and have set routes for people on them. On more than one occasion fellows with Sat Navs have asked me for my trusty 5 mmm thick fit anywhere when traveling light map. Why? to figure out where they actually were  :lol The funniest one was in the Dordogne Valley in the village of Domme. Stopped to look down over the wall to the river far below and this guy I just waved to parked and comes up to me and asks if he could have a look at the map I had in the tank bag. I gave to to him and then noticed the Sat Nav, I asked what was wrong with the Sat Nav, His reply "Oh nothing it brought me straight to Domme, I just want to know where the Foc it is" :rollin My wife his girlfrined and I could not be consoled  :rollin

It's daft Pat. If you're riding roads you're unfamiliar with, you'll presumably keep the speed down a bit anyway, and use the "slow in, fast out" philosophy. And if you're pushing on, I don't know about others, but my eyes will be looking for all the clues that are imminent. And most of the canyon/mountain roads I've ridden would mean glancing down at the screen almost constantly, as the bends come up one after another - that's why we like to ride them, isn't it?


I turn most of the features off, otherwise I get warning beeps and boops every few seconds. Animal crossing?! Do I really need that? What about in Wales, where every bit of road is regarded by sheep as fair game?  :lol
Same here Nick, so many clues available and using the "vanishing point" in this situation is also a vital part of your arsenal of knowledge.

Robbo I would seriously attempt to dissuade you from that practice simply because Sat Navs maps are not always right up to date, whereas your wits are always up to date with the latest information. Sat Navs/Gps are aids/guides in navigation nothing else, hone your road riding skills, no distractions live longer. Just like in Mountaineering they tell you almost exactly where you are and a possible route to your destination.
