sorry guys I seem to have lost the plot a bit there :D

well then crazy one...

youve only just got the bike (august) and she's done 12000 miles, I'd do a quick compression test if it were me just in case the rings are getting a bit worn....the info for that is also in this thread somewhere

when i had an oil change i asked the bloke to do a compression test he said it was fine dose the power valve have to line up with the hole behind the plastic thing or is it a diffirent possition ?

The thing is...did the guy actually do a proper test with a gauge or did he just feel compression and assume it's fine?

What measurement did he get? It should be about 100psi you'll see if you look through this thread and on the subject of looking through this thread there is detailed info on setting up the pv

there are two types of pv

my 2003 bike had a diamond shaped end that went inside of the pulley and this type has the means of fitting it in a position that would reduce power output, the other type had no restricted position, with that type you either had it right or wrong by 180 degrees; you'd have to take the pulley off to see what you have
