One and a half turns out from fully screwed in.

keep in mind the bikes age,you will rarely find that the factory specs will be spot on after a bike has some years under it.

Hi, Anonymous start with 1 1/2 turns out then you will need a vacuum board or 4 vacuum gauges to sync all four.
For this scenario, you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere $10 you can download another one.
