  1. Valve adjustment

    might be easiest to just put trans in 5th gear and bump the reaR WHEEL AROUND.....or use the starter to turn engine.
  2. ^^^ yes, you can send those carbs to me for a professional carb cleaning, inspection, adjustments, a very accurate synch and a tweak of the factory-lean mixture screws and a leak test too.
  3. Case jointing

    "Yamabond" is also great stuff !
  4. Coolant from overflow tank

    a failing rad cap that won't hold pressure could be the cause.
  5. 2002 headlight aiming question

    you've got it backwards !! to aim lights use the HIGH beams, and the low beams will be OK then too.
  6. look in the FSM, and if you don't have one, download it. to move the screw you'll need to carefully scribe a groove into the head so a screwdriver fits........or find the proper D-shaped tool. you can do alot of damage to the screw head if things go wrong, so use the PROPER TOOL. looking at the plug colors will give better info than using your nose.
  7. 1986 VFR750 - should I buy it?

    correct: worth twice what he's asking ! if you never rode one you wouldn't know.
  8. check both ends of the main ground wire for corrosion or loose bolt. unplug the connection between ignition switch and wiring harness, looking for corrosion, then clean the contyactys.

  10. VF1000R questions

    another tip for bleeding clutch slaves is to remove the slave from the sprocket cover, and use a C-clamp to hold the piston in fully retracted position while bleeding.
  11. strapped to a pallet, shipping would be around $200-$250
  12. Radiator fan turns off too soon

    install a manual switch in parallel with the fan switch.
  13. i got hold of a clean, good-compression gen3 engine + carbs and don't need them. from a running bike, valve clearances check OK. carbs cleaned, no fuel in them since. all offers considered. fob buffalo, ny
  14. installing cylinder heads on an '86/700 and i find that the external oil lines have one dowel pin open and another one restricted by small holes !!! which goes where ?? service manual sadly lacking info.
