I have a 2005 Yamaha majesty 400, I can't get it to go past 50 mph. I change out the air and crankshaft filter, put in new rollers and V belt, put in new spark plug and it still runs the same. Help!!!


Tappets may need adjusting, carb could need cleaning, maybe a bad fuel pump. You don't say what mileage is up on it, was the camchain changed recently?
If you're a home mechanic, I'd check the gap on the tappets first, it's the least expensive fix.

The following info have been gathered from various sources on the web

Q: What does XT stand for?

A: The 'X' stands for CROSS, and the 'T' for TRAIL

Yamaha's first single-cylinder 4-stroke motorcycle made its debut at the 21st Tokyo Motor show in 1975. As well as being the latest in a series of trail (off-road) models Yamaha had introduced at each of the Tokyo Motor Shows since the DT-1's debut in 1968, the new XT500 represented a whole new concept in trail bike design.

The Yamaha DT-1 had introduced many riders to the world of trail riding, and this ground-breaking model was later followed by the introduction of many other trail bikes from other manufacturers. The new Yamaha XT500 was a natural extension of the growing trail bike category, and although it shared the same roots as its 2-stroke brother, the DT-1, it was an entirely different breed of motorcycle. Powered by Yamaha's first 4-stroke single-cylinder engine, the new XT boasted a large capacity of 500cc, and this was at a time when the popularity of big-single machines was considered by many to be past its peak. During the mid-1970s Britain's BSA was one of the few manufacturers still offering big single machines, but even this renowned brand had not released a new big single model in a good number of years.

Tappet clearance and spark plug gap on 5.5 hp ohv engine, i have a generator which runs on natural gas made by china i just want to know the gap of tappet and the spark plug gap


I have a Robin but they all are pretty much the same for plug gap and tappets. I worked in a lawnmower small engine repair shop for many years in San Diego
I set them all the same and never had one return. I just did mine a couple of months ago and hand lapped the intake and exhaust valve seats. Starts first time everytime like the 7.5 year old unit is new!!!

Plug gap 0.19

Tappets

Intake .005 cold
Exhaust .006 cold.
