Testimonial: "Thank you so much. I would like to raise the seat as well.May I ask another question: I would like to place an engine dresser bar or (leg guard) so that I dont damage the engine and save my legs from coming under the bike.The genuine crash bars cost $200 here in the state.

Sounds like the carbs need to be synchronized. What you have with a multi carb bike is a multiple small engines attached to the same crankshaft. If one is accelerating harder than the others, it will cause "cylinder fight" as the others either fight to keep up, or slow the faster one down. You need a special tool to do it, or you can get it done reasonably cheap at almost any bike shop. It could also just be a spark plug wire shorting out. And make sure they are in the right order. Good luck.

i think the speedo drive has a little molded ridge on it which should slide into a slot on the fork leg, thus stopping the drive from spinning round the spindle. drop the front spindle out and align the drive correctly and then slide back the spindle and bolt it all up and you should be all good to go.

SOURCE: oil leak out of a breather hose
a small amount of oil from the crankcase vent hose under hard acceleration is most likely normal.American bikes don't leak oil,they mark their spot!

Use a blade screw driver to remove the cover. Once off, you can use your fingers to slowly pry the cushion from the seat frame - it's lightly glued.
Now trim away at the cushion at the side that attaches to the seat frame - NOT the 'up' side. If you don't have an electric knife (e.g., turkey knife), just use a cheap, but long, bread knife. The cheap ones are more flexible and you may need the blade to be a bit flexible.
Cut in strips from the front to the beginning of the pilion rise. No need to cut down the foam underneath the pilion. Do so in shallow cuts trying to maintain the basic "flatness" of the base foam. Every quarter inch you should put the seat back on the bike to do a fit check until you've reach the seat height you want.
Cutting the seat down this way will allow the next owner to easily build up the seat from the bottom and not mess with shaping in anyway. I know this because I bought an '05 S3 with a cut down seat and had it built back to slight taller than stock for only $80.
When reassembling, you will want to spray a light coating of contact cement on the foam and seat pan to make sure it won't slip. Attaching the cover over the foam requires a decent electric or pneumatic staple gun. The manual ones DO NOT have the power to drive the staples into the '05 S3 seat pan...it's very hard.

They are in front of the ignition key. Pull off the little panel surrounding the ignition (from the bottom)
Please mark this as very helpful (if it has been!!)
