The minor backfires/popping you hear on decel are normal for a properly jetted 4-stroke and are due to the over-rich mixture which is caused by the high vacuum created when the throttle is closed at high rpms. Don't worry about them....

I think sometimes they feel they must do anything they can to make the forums look bad.

The idler gear 1 is under the the 2 bolt round side cover look at page 4-81 of your manual bottom 3 pictures. The idler will slip at a lower torque than the previous one. The gear tested by people on this forum claim that the original idler set slipped at a much higher torque than the new one. Something like 87 ft lbs vs 24 ft lbs I think. All I know is that Yamaha isn't saying anything but my original didn't slip (I marked them) and the new one does. I think it costs about 56 or 58 bucks list, I think I paid about 36 for it. We have enough crap that we can't control to worry about so it was a no brainer for us.

the new # they added the -01-00 on the end! original was
-00-00 & is discontinued.
Here is the link to the parts catalog picture, you may have to move your mouse over the actual picture (gear parts) & wait a little while for the arrow to pop up to maximize the picture, then just click on it - then see gear #1!
How's that? am I good or what!
