The clunk sound is quite distinctive.

I sometimes even feel "vibration" of some gears clunking together when I shift the gears,what I read in another forum that there is a screw that holds the shifter cam (behind the clutch basket) that can come loose...I dont know If I want to go back into the clutch again...

Hi Ryan
You get to that screw through the sump. No need to touch the clutch.

Let's have a listen on Friday, shall we? I suspect you just have to get used to the amount of mechanical noise your engine makes.

I admit though, that the 850 you didn't take was probably the quietest Yam Triple I've ever heard...  :P
(I shall fire mine up today or tomorrow just to have a valid comparison!)

Before I take anything apart I will check on my clutch actuation adjustment (under the plastic side cover).
The problem got worse since I swapped to higher bars ...the clutch cable will be swapped to a longer one so I guess this could cause the clutch to drag sometimes (too short clutch cable).

The gas cable is way too short and causes the bike to gas when I turn left or right the tightely :-) pretty funny when you pull up to your friends and the bike revv´s up like hell when the bike is parked  :D

So guys!

Great news on the XS front.

The "cracking" gears stopped after I readjusted the clutch actuation screw.One turn out and it got WAY better

Had my friend "Der Nanno" coming over redadjusting the valves ( they were set completely wrong), readjusting the ignition and syncing the carbs.Now the baby starts first kick even when the engine is cold.

Since I swapped to higher bars I had to order new bowdens for gas and clutch and currently waiting for them.
Bike is supercomfy now with the new bars.

I have the plan to ride with this bike to my Bachelorparty in Zagreb (Croatia) this summer, so it has to work properly or I will strand somewhere  ::)

One thing I still need to do is dropping the needle clip, it looks like the bike is running a bit lean in the mid throttle area.
I already took the needles out but there is a plastic piece (maybe its a shim) in there which I cant really eyeball what to do with it.
Under the plastic piece there are still 2 notches to adjust the needle so maybe I just need to take that out...

What are your thoughts on these?

Simply adjust the needle as you would on the RD, the plastic bobbin is just a retainer (of sorts) and will not affect jetting.

Cheers,
Greg

Running pods and 3-1 open MAC I had to richen the needle a notch from factory on the MKIIs.  132.5 was plenty of main on the big end with my 750 jug set.
