    Quick Trim hard to adjust

    Hey guys -

    My trim has alot of resistance when adjusting. I went by the dealer yesterday and the models on the floor adjusted much easier and smoother than mine does. I shot some spray lube in the handlebar cable, on the pully, and applied grease to the slide bar on the back.

    Im going to recheck and spray more this weekend, but is there any other way to get this to loosen up and move free?

    is it tight when you are stopped too? if not, just try letting off the gas before you shift. if it is, you should get a cable luber and spray to force the lube between the cables and jackets. http://www.denniskirk.com/jsp/produc...afCatId=&mmyId=

    Thats what Ive been doing. Hopefully Im just missing a spot I havent sprayed yet. I like that tool. I may have to pick that up. My spray can isnt getting very deep into the cable.

    without the tool you arn't lubing anything but what's exposed. you need to get teh tool and pump the lube in 1 end until it comes out the other end. a length of hose and an air compressor will achieve the same goal. just clamp it down tight and wear eye protection.

    i like to flush them out with wd 40 or amsoil MP or pb blaster, then lube them with yamaha cable lube. I got it at a local marina. I'm sure there are other brands out there too. http://www.boats.net/parts/detail/Bl...CEC-AB-LE.html

    If you take the Allen screw out of the end of the handle bar, pull the plug and get some lube in there too.

    Your trying to change your position when the pump is under pressure. The manual says not do this while trying to accelerate or being at a high rate of speed. I know if you have it in the down position and accelerate and then press the lever it will automatically pop back into the neutral position. This is done on the hole shot in closed course racing.
