    adjusting handlebar controls

    Forgive me if this sounds silly or remedial, but is there a way to adjust the handlebar controls inwards so to make room for bar end mirrors? Its a Gen 1 with stock bars and controls.

    Vboost cable adjusting

    I was working on a max and noticed, that I have quite a bit of freeplay in vboost cable, can that be tightened up somehow?? I've noticed before, that my vboost buzzes longer on a power-up than in videos that I have seen in youtube etc. It can be heard when servo pulls just freeplay and when it...

    Adjusting A/F mixure

    I recently put a UFO 4-2 exhaust on my vmax, and it seems to run different at highway speeds (around 4.5k rpm). Hard to tell if its misfiring or backfiring. It just doesn't sound smooth. So I went to adjust the mixture on the carbs and all of the mixture screws were between 6 and 8 turns...

    adjusting throttle cables

    Hello, Can anybody describe how to adjust the throttle cables. If I put them as the service manuel dictates (assuming I'm interpreting the book correctly), the is no throttle return. If I adjust the cables so the throttle returns, the cable slides are out of their prescribe marks. Also...

    adjusting vboost

    Hello, When adjusting the vboost, the control cable, and a set screw are involved. When synchronizing the vboost, a set screw is involved. My question is.... where should the locking bolt be when the control cable is adjusted, towards the back of the engine, middle, or front of the...

    adjusting engagement point

    I notice that if i have the clutch fully grabbed that it feels the clutch isn't quite disengaging the tranny. I've never had a bike with a hydraulic clutch before and I don't see any adjustment screw. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks, Sid

    Adjusting new throttle cables

    I replaced my old worn upper throttle cables with some braided ones I got from Sean. I have a question about it though, and I'm not sure of the answer. There are 2 cables. One of them has a giant long nut that you can use to adjust the slack. I've got mine almost all of the way out and there is...

    Adjusting preload OE springs

    Any recommendations for adjusting preload on the OE springs without the toolkit tool? Aftermarket tools possibly? I don't feel like spending almost 200$ for an OE toolkit.

    Need help adjusting headlight

    In my first attempt at replacing the headlight bulb, I accidently turned the wrong 2 screws and messed up my beam adjustment. :bang head: Can anyone give me some "garage" type adjustments to get me in the ball park so I don't have to sit in the middle of a dark road at night and tweak on it? At...

    valve adjusting

    Is there anyone on the board close to me who knows how to check the valve and adjust them if needed? I'm in Corning NY but will travel. I need to replace my valve cover gaskets and figured it would be a good time to check the valve clearances. The local dealer (as with all dealers....bikes or...

    Adjusting the valves

    Ok, somewhere I read that valve adjustment should be done every 14-16k miles or so. I'm currently a bit over 17k miles and my engine has some noise that I could easily attribute to the valves. So, since my mornic arse hasn't picked up a Clymer manual yet, does anyone have a PDF or site that...
