ty much, i have one more newb question requarding the same subject.

After removing the clamp (1). How does one get to the actual strainer bolt? I figured the meshed hose would detach from the upper portion below the bolt. But, I don't want to snap the hose :cry: as it looked pretty fragile. Does the actual strainer decend a bit into the hose?

I just need a little reassurance that I can pull straight down on the detached hose :cry:

thx =))

It will come off. It just takes a good pull. Try to pull straight though so you don't damage the hose.

Zombie, I wouldn't even worry about removing that screen assembly. I've been running Yamaha four strokes since the '98 YZF400, and have never had any material caught in that screen. Sure, you can do it for piece of mind, but I'm willing to bet that you'll never find anything in there, EVER!!! Maniac :cry:

The #4 Bolt in the bottom drawing can also be removed with a 3/4" wrench. I personally slide the closed end over the whole assembly (minus the hose of course), seems to work like a charm.
