I put 2 actuators in my 1100.....and 1 in my wifes before learning the plastic gear trick.

We both have 998s now. So far hers has been good....and as I said mine stopped working for a day twice.

I took the gear off the actuator, piece of steel rod drilled hole through both, put pin through, connected to a "long nut", made a little cover plate,bent the rod to L shape, drilled hole in right side cover, then connected that with another pin, flick the lever to the right, you got reverse, back up, forward.

You are right about the 25,000 miles. This is listed in my owner's manual. I assumed it was 5,000 like on an 1100 turbo so I asked for it to be done. I don't remember them mentioning it wasn't required. It was done at Boss in Rangeley. Maybe they didn't do it. They charged for 3 hours for the service which covered greasing, changing engine and chain case oils, changing sliders, checking clutch alignment and ski alignment.
I would say they didnít do it if they only charged you for three hours of labor. Labor would of been a lot more if they got into the valves.

That makes sense. Also, looking under the hood, looks like not much disturbed, no new cable ties, etc. I won't have to worry about it for another 15k miles.

If you're referring to 998 valves, the official service manual (and I think it's also shown in owner's manual) says to get valves adjusted every 25,000 miles. Yamaha manual shows same.

31000 klm on my boosted 2014 (300 +hp). Got valve adjusted at 29000 klm. Runs stronger after valve adjustment. I do have cooling mist methanol injection. Love this sled.
