jwfree,



You can reach it from inside the opening in the bodywork where the top part of left fork leg goes, it’s just below the backside of low beam housing. It’s easier to see when the body work is removed.



I lubed the screw with dielectric grease and safety wired a four inch length of 1/4″ fuel line to the end so it can be adjusted while seated on the bike.



Good luck



Headlight adjustment

Did anyone ever figure out where the adjustment screw is? I have

looked and can’t find it?

[Cagiva_Gran_Canyon2] Re: What kind of plastic?

The tanks are Natural Cast Nylon. It is not weldable. At least that’s what they are on my 1999 GC.

Under the filler plate the tanks are stamped PA6 Acerbis. PA6, as I’ve found out, is the code for NCN.

So, DON’T make the mistake I did and try to weld the tank yourself, it will just turn to crap and make a bigger mess.

So now I stuck with trying to find another left tank, or having a liner built into mine. I’m leaning toward the liner route since another tank might just develop the same problem.

PA is PolyAmide

Nylon is a DuPont band name like Heineken is a brand name for beer and Budweiser is a brand name for……..ehhh…something that looks like beer.
