    PV cleaning questions

    My buddy has a millennium gpr. he is not mechanically inclined at all, so i am going to be working on it either tonight or tomorrow morning. We are going to install the waveaters, and clean the PV's, because when I pulled the cover off one to check if it had the clips, it was NAAASSSTTTYYYY!

    So, how long should this take, and are there any tips or tricks I should know about? does any part of the exh need to come out? ez off a good idea to clean them up?

    Thanks!

    Mike, if it was mine and I wanted to do the job well I would just pull the head to keep all of the junk from falling in the cylinders. You could take some rags and stuff them in the cylinders and exhaust and just use a good cleaner. The rags would keep anything from "vanishing".

    If you dont want to pull the head, just be ral careful and scrape the junk out with a screwdriver, etc.

    Thanks Jeff. I actually worked on teh ski tonight. first time wrenching on a gpr since the bug dam I hate those things WTF was Yamaha thinking with that dam pipe! Can't get to anything without taking off that thing. I didn't want to pull the pipe, so I couldn't pull the head, and I couldn't remove the PV's because of the pipe bracket in the way. we want to ride tomorrow. so I installed the clips and couplers, douched the valves with carb cleaner and started it. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

    Mike, you dont have to remove the pipe to get the head off. The P/V covers come off without taking anything off of the ski.
