everything looked great :D a little blow by on pistons! cylinder walls look very nice . my apv valves were a little black had small amout of build up on them ( i use cat oil) i adjusted my oil rod from the top ! turned it in 2 turns chould have went up to five before it bottoms out but my ratio is around 56:1 to 70:1 depending on riding conditions. not bad to do from the top ! i did not want to drill my rivits out to get my belly pan off. even my little rubber ball is ok :lol: :lol: :lol: also took my chain case cover off to check things out and change the oil ! everything looked good overall! im sorry to hear about some of you guys having problems i really hope cat takes care of you ! but as far as my thoughts on this sled :wub: first pic is the cylinder wall ! o ya i have 1015 miles on my f-7

hey switta...i just pulled off my powervalves and cleaned them...the ends had build up i had to use the old razor to get it off...i dont know whats a lot or whats a little (normal) since ive never delt with them before..anywho..i think when i sqeezed the throttle i saw the oil pump lever...is it located under the throttle bodies..or between them?? did u just twist urs up? i brought mine to the dealer and he screwed it up 4 turns..and he said my pistons and walls were perfect...id like to throw it down a little..back to where i had it..since everything was ok..how about do u adjust the rod?? it looks like u just turn the thicker part of it and twist either way...all the way up (closest to me) i assume would be what cat wants it at??...

you have to take the rod off ! to get the lock nut loose . i pulled my air box out then pulled the air boot of the throttle bodys then you can get your hand in their to snap the rod of the ball . . takes a little time but i think it's better then pulling the belly pan ! also my pipe was off only thing that was a little hard to do was get the airbox back into the boot :wacko: :wacko: had to step away for a bit :lol: but then it slid right in when i tried again :D also spent like 30 min trying to get my 12 mm socket from out of the belly pan!!!!!

Switta (or whoever), is there any special trick to taking off the APV cable blocks -- the metal block assemblies that actually hold the cables to the valves? I tried to take out the 3mm allen bolts, but couldn't break them loose with just a wrench. Do they have to be heated because red loctite was used or something, or do you just need a 3mm socket to break 'em loose? It'd sure be a lot easier to thoroughly clean the valve shafts and housings if they could be completely taken apart, but I sure as heck don't wanna' break anything either! Thanks!! -- Roy
