    High speed adjustment difficulty

    Everyone knows how difficult it is to get to the high speed adjusters on a GPR with a stock pipe. Even with the hole cut in the mounting braket it is still difficult. Has anyone ever come up with an easy way to adjust? I was think of fabricating a cable system much like the idle adjuster.

    I use a bit of stainless rod with a slot cut in the end of it, also the end is slightly bent to make access easier. Works perfectly.

    I am only 5'9, so I have pretty short arms. If I take out the battery box and lay on the ski (like superman) I can reach all adjusters. #1 is really hard, but i just can get it.

    A company named Crossbones used to make remote cable adjusters. I have them on my 2000. I think they are great. I also have a flexible cable that has a screwdriver handle on one end and a socket I slotted on the other end. It works good. I bought it at Kragen.

    Get a long thin slotted screw driver. Cut a slot the width of the 'T" handle bars. Use the slot in the screwdriver to twist the "T" handle open and closed.

    I have real skinny arms and can get to the first two carbs (front to back) with sticking my arms in just the right way. I can get to the last carb by doing the same and using a small screwdriver to turn it whatever way I want. But, not everyone is a skinny as me...if that doesn't work for you...get a long craftsman flathead screwdriver and that will do the trick.

    Craftsman makes a slotted screwdriver with a 1/4" shank that's 18" long. Buy it, cut a small notch in the blade, and use that to adjust your highs.
