The reason that I've noticed these things is that or my current rebuild, I just got a lock washer, in genuine Yamaha packaging with the '06 part #, which is differently shaped from the OEM washer that I'm replacing (in a heavier kind of weigh).
Especially considering that the adjoining "weight 2" has been changed with the lockwasher, and figuring how sensitive the engine might be to the minute weight difference between the old and new washers- I have to wonder, should I: (1) shave some material off of my new lockwasher so that it looks physically similar to my old one, (2)shave some weight of my "weight 2", figuring that I am only going to get this new shaped washer in the future, or (3) do nothing about all of this? I'm thinking that I'll recreate the OEM lockwasher to be safe- pass me the deremel.
Gray, et al, do I need to worry about this?
On a different subject, does any one need or want a Word document file with all of the parts fiche pictures, part #'s, and discounted prices (28% off, I think). I'm happy to share the one that I created when I needed to be able to cross reference a part # with its application. If so let me know how best to get a copy to you.
