I am having the same issue but mine needs new tires. But the thing that got me miffed is I put new Bridgestones on in May 09.
Only got 5000 miles and both front and reae are gone. The First set that came with the bike new were Dunlop and lasted 14000
miles. And as I have now learned everything for this bike is top of the line. Tires that fit are only made by Dunlopand are over $550
for both without mounting or Bridgestone at $450 no mounting.Love the bike but not worth it after the warrenty of gone.

Did you change anything ... like putting stuff in a saddle bag? Different boots? Have you cheked air pressure in the tires? Are you sitting on the bike differently?

I'm leaning to tire pressure or uneven front tire wear and it does not have to be a lot of uneven tire wear to act in thismanner.

Please my friend, get this looked at by your Yamaha professional

When cutting vertically down a piece of wood the cut veers to the left all the time even when i try to steer it right


You may have a slightly bend in your bar. Take something straight like a line level and put it next to both sides of your bar and try to see if you see the bend. If the chain is still tracking ok than the bend may not be noticable by eye. A replacement bar can be purchased at Lowes Home Improvement Center for around $30. If replacing the bar does not solve your issue Lowes will allow you to return it within 90 days. I if replacing the bar does not solve the problem I would recommend taking it to a Husqvarna repair Center.

Not cutting in straight line


Normally blade overheating. Improper blade or too few teeth for material, teeth not sharp and/or offset enough for proper width of cut. Teeth must cut wider than blade. Inexpensive blades tend to do this quickly. Other possibility: Bad bearing, check for play with saw unplugged. Blade should have little wobble. Other possibility: Saw body cracked/damaged(allowing shaft to skew) or very cheap saw unable to handle material

Cutting straight


this is usually caused by a dull blade or you need to carefully re-adjust the blade guides

How do i fold down the mutsy urban rider pushchair


Hi,

To fold the Mutsy Urban follow these steps:

Stand slightly to the left of the pram, but have the handle bar (with button depressed) in your right hand. Have your left hand on the black cuff (on the left hand leg of the chassis)
In one movement, push in the button on the handle (with your right hand) and move downwards, whilst pulling the cuff upwards (with your left hand). Do this quite firmly and the pram will then collapse. Make sure that the handle is in the lowest position after folding, ensuring that the pram is as small as possible.

I hope this helps.

Ryobi Bench Grinder with Linisher tracking difficulty.


It sounds like the pulley is not adjusted correctly. This is causing the belt to move on you. Carefully inspect and adjust the pulley so it is square and flat. Use a straight edge.

When making a straight cut with my bandsaw, the blade will


Before tuning it up, loosen the guides and wheels away and square the table to the tensioned blade. Then follow these steps in order:
  1. First, adjust the upper wheel so the blade is tracking at the center or just to the front of center of the wheel tire. (You can see this with the cover removed, and adjust it with the nut/wing nut in the back).
  2. Now, make sure the blade guides are adjusted so they don't deflect the blade to either side (when looked at from the front), so they contact the blade just behind the gullet of the teeth, but not against the hooked teeth themselves, and are just tight enough to allow the blade to run freely (including the weld). (If your guides are worn and out of flat, you may wish to dress them on a sander before adjusting them against the blade.) Adjust the guides both above and below the table. At this point, ensure that the guide bar moves up and down easily and locks into position without torqueing the guides against the blade.
  3. Finally, adjust the bearings behind the blade, so they just kiss it, and turn freely when you revolve the bandsaw wheel. They will support the back of the blade when pressure is applied against it during a cut, and help immensely to keep the blade tracking straight.
At this point, check the cut by trying to follow a straght line penciled on a board. Some blades will naturally tend to veer slightly on a diagonal, depending on how they are sharpened, and you may have to adjust your fence to compensate for this "drift".
But if you follow the steps outlined above, and have a good sharp blade to begin with, you should be able to split a line.
If you follow these tips and they prove helpful, please let us know your problem is solved. Otherwise, give us a little more detail and someone will be happy to follow up.
