I have read the manual which states to line up marks with a line in the middle. I notice three marks on the rotating cable pulley. Can someone tell me the best way to adjust the oil pump to the lowest setting on a fuel injected bike.

I have read about cutting threads but what exactly does this mean and how much to remove until what lines up where? Many thanks. Tim

You will probably find when you adjust the cable down to align the marks on the pump that the adjuster bolt will hit the cam lobe on the pump. Therefore you have to cut about 5mm off the end of the cable adjuster.
I also had to remove the one lock nut from the cable side of the adjuster bracket to get more adjustment on the cable.
This was on a carb bike though.
