I took it apart today, and carefully looked around... The needle doesn't seem movable (well it is, but it doesn't seem meant to be moved and left there) The spring for the throttle cable goes down into the slider, and rests on the needle.... so moving it up the slider, the spring would only push it down again...

THe needle has a notch in theend of it, similar to a nail head. the 'head' sits in a slot on the float. The play in this slot, is what appears to stop the float. No metal stuff around, save for the little axle the float hinges on...

I adjusted the oil pump cable a hair past the mark the manual mentions. The pump will still pump oil, at idle and at WOT, im pretty sure... I don't think I'll keep it this way for long...

Im thinking about stopping by the Yamaha dealer tommorrow, too...
