I would guess the later. Its got rummer on the end of a little plunger looking think, but its not a tip, not pointy anyway, but just a rubber end to it... Its adjusted all the way down... but I'll keepthat in mind tomorrow, when next I plan to look at it...

It all seemed to be in factory condition...

kinda both. THis intermittant loss of power at 24 mph was kinda gradual, but the loss of continous power at 20 was all of the sudden. Thats been taken care of for the most part. Ive been thinking of adjusting the oil pump further in the same direction to see if its gets better or not... but then you have to wonder if the motor is getting enough oil... Maybe I have the Yamaha shop give it the once over...

I wich I had more straigh leve ground by my house to try this... but its all hills, and busy streets here... maybe I'll try messing with it some more at a friends place...
It is drivable now, in fact I had a steady run of 25 mph for about 6-7 blocks tonight... but like I said I used to hit 27 or so... and I would like to top out at 30 so Ican handle the bigger streets on the north end of town....
