Premium Member wessie Posted March 27, 2015 Premium Member Share Posted March 27, 2015 It was mentioned in this thread but that had a number of topics within so I have created a new topic here. So, just a heads up as this is likely to happen to everyone at some point unless you take remedial action. GRAVITY WILL GET YOUR KNOB That's the knobs on either side of your screen you slacken off to make adjustments. They are done hand tight, are quite small and a little awkward to grasp, so you cannot really torque them up, especially if you have knackered thumb joints like me. The thread has a circlip on the end but this is not man enough for the application and I have lost the left knob to gravity. I didn't notice until I went to replace my screen with this one I have now decided the screen will stay in one position so I have replaced the knob with an allen bolt which I can torque up tightly. The allen key under the seat fits the bolt should I need to make an adjustment. I think it looks neater than a lump of knurled plastic flapping about in the wind. I have mentioned this to my dealer so he is going to raise a service report to Yamaha and ask them to provide a replacement. As mentioned in the other thread, a bit of Loctite will sort the problem. As would a blob of Araldite or a nyloc nut. Just anything to stop the adjuster falling out if it works loose as the circlip used by Yamaha either falls off or is not big enough to stop it passing through the hole. This signature is left blank as the poster writes enough pretentious bollocks as it is. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
