### Can I get shorter shock absorbers for my Honda cb 400 super4 as I am short in the leg

There are a few things you can do.

1. Get lower (shorter) rear shocks.
2. Move the forks up an inch or two. Make sure you sure measure and move both the same.

3. Get shorter springs for the forks (this is the ideal solution but it takes more work and effort to do)

### Size of drive belt for HU700F walk-behind mower

belt lengths are printed on the back of the belt
so if it reads as an example 645 that will be the length so if you want one that is 1" shorter then the belt reading will be 644
if it is in mm the 1" shorter will be 25 mm shorter than the printed number

### Why is the high band wi-fi connection limited?

If you mean the 2.4Ghz Vs. 5Ghz, The 5Ghz is a shorter range system compared to the 2.4Ghz.
Reason is that the higher frequency signal is effected more by objects in it's path. Also higher frequencies have a shorter range just due to it's shorter wavelength.
Hope this helps.

### Bypass ac compressor 2006 saturn vue

I doubt it but I would have to see it in person to say for sure.
If nothing is in the way between the pulley before and the pulley after the compressor, you could use a shorter belt. How much shorter would be something you would have to try to measure.
On the rare occasions when a vehicle comes without ac, the factory puts a dummy pulley in the place of the compressor. I think all Saturn Vue cars had ac.
You say the compressor won't turn, but you really mean the clutch on the compressor ??

### Plank of wood 2 metres long. cut into two lenghts. longer piece is four times the lenght of shorter piece. how long is each lenght?

It is solved by writing an equation
If the shorter piece is y cm, then the the longer piece would be 4y which is four times the shorter length. The total of these 2 together is 2meters or 200 cm, Now write the equation (2 pieces together is 200cm)

y + 4y = 200
5y =200
y =40
Since we have taken the lengh of shorter piece as y,
Shorter piece=40 cm OR 0.4m
Longer piece =160cm OR 1.6m
I have written the steps in detail for you to understand the process
Good luck

Longer piece= 160cm
