How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

To take your dartboard for a `spin`: unclip the number ring and turn the board by one segment. E.g. 20 would become 12. Then just clip the number ring back on. And remember to go in the same direction each time.
When a dart comes close to the wire and there is a staple there, it is more likely to hit the staple and bounce out. The wires on older dartboards are also bigger and they tend to flatten out after prolonged use, which makes them bigger. This increases your chances of hitting the wire and seeing your dart bounce out.
The electronic dartboard is smaller, with a diameter of 15.5 inches, and has an attached power source that reads the darts as they hit the board and displays the score on an LCD display. This can be more accurate than regular boards, depending on the quality of the board.
It is a common misconception dating back to the days of pre-bristle dartboards that soaking or spraying a dartboard with water (or other liquids) will increase its life. No liquids should ever come into contact with the surface of a bristle dartboard, as this could damage the board and decrease its lifespan.
Most modern dart boards are made from Sisal. Sisal dartboards should never be exposed to water or moisture. Not one component of your dartboard will benefit from getting wet. The sisal will absorb the moisture unevenly and cause your dartboard to look like a mountain range.
There is no doubt that missing shots are common and that they can significantly damage your wall. Sadly, it can create lots of holes, and dings that will look worse as time goes on. As the paint starts to chip off, your wall will look like crap. You can`t depend on your aim to be precise all the time.
Over time and regular play, dart flights can sustain quite a bit of wear and tear. As you improve your game, tight groupings and collisions increase the chance of damage.
Darts may not have broken or cut off tips. No blow darts or magnetic darts are allowed. g.
You can use the electronic dartboard in the traditional way – a quick game of round the clock, or maybe 501, anyone? But there`s no chalk or mind maths needed, as the scores will be automatically calculated and digitally displayed, like they are when you play ten pin bowling.
The darts board containes numbers 1 to 20. The number on the board is amount of the points scored. Hitting the outer ring area (Double) scores a double. The scored is twice the number on the board.
The right answer is to fill them with spackling compound or taping compound. Spackle dries hard – applied with a putty knife and then has to be sanded to remove excess and flatten surface.
Take a soft cloth, soak it in water, and then squeeze it to remove excess water. Now, use this soft cloth to clean the surface of the dartboard. Continue this process for at least 5 minutes and repeat the process at regular intervals. You can use a vacuum cleaner to clean your dartboard.
The lower end of the bristle dart board category has offerings at around $30.00, but the upper end can go as high as $120.00. This broad range in price is due to the high variability in quality, with more expensive boards using higher quality fibers, a tighter fiber core compression, etc.
Perhaps the easiest and most underutilized way to extend the life of your sisal dartboard is to simply rotate it, and rotate it often. If you`re playing on your dart board a couple of hours every day, we recommend you rotate it at least once a week.
When attaching the dartboard to the wall, make sure it is flush against the wall and not leaning forward in any way. If the dartboard is leaning forward, this will make the measurements inaccurate and you will find the dartboard wobbles when you throw darts.
When set up and played correctly, darts is one of the safest sports you can play. It is considered low risk as it is a non-contact and a low-impact sport. However, that doesn`t mean there is no risk in playing the game. Accidents can still happen that put the players in a dangerous situation and could cause harm.
Throwing darts is physical exertion in itself as is walking to the oche and from the oche to the dartboard to collect the darts. There is no doubt darts involves physical exertion and it also requires plenty of skills. Throwing three darts into a very narrow target to score 180 is not luck, it requires skill.
Popular Steel Dart Arrows weighing 23 to 25 grams

23 to 25 grams steel dart,is a right weight for a beginners to start . Without proper training, playing with heavier darts can be fast, which of course also adversely affects the hit rate.

However, according to darts legend Dennis Priestley, alcohol remains prevalent in the game. The two-time world champion reckons that, of the top 64 players in the world, most drink to varying degrees.
These days, darts is a professional, sober affair, at least for the players. But some of the champions of the past were famous for their boozing. Can alcohol ever enhance people`s ability to play darts? The answer depends on how nervous you are, and whether or not you`re addicted to alcohol.
The PDC in cooperation with the DRA, the Darts Regulation Authority, has drafted very specific PDC rules which are equally valid for every player. For example, players are not allowed to wear jeans, but should switch to so-called cloth pants, which are somewhat finer. Also sports shoes are not welcome.
Darts are airborne ranged weapons. They are designed to fly such that a sharp, often weighted point will strike first. They can be distinguished from javelins by the presence of fletching (feathers on the tail) and a shaft that is shorter and/or more flexible.
The heaviest darts you can buy and use on the professional level are 50 grams.
: a small missile usually with a pointed shaft at one end and feathers at the other. (2) darts plural in form but singular in construction : a game in which darts are thrown at a target.

How do I set up a dart board the correct way, with measurements etc? And where is the best place to put your dart board?
ANSWER : Id say the best place is where you have an open space to play, normally we have ours outside on the patio, but in winter we put it on the back of the hallway door, we use soft cork on the outsides of the board so when you throw miss, it lands in the cork, not the door. Have a look at this site:

Turned poulan pro 42 inch 18.5 HP Briggs and Stratton mower off after 1hr of use to move a board I was about to mow over. Tried to restart it but it just backfires. Removed spark plug and it looked fouled. Cleaned it up but when looking at spark it is orange in color. Bought new spark plug and now get white spark. Installed new spark plug and it still backfires. Plug is wet with gas. Any suggestions?
ANSWER : Check the valve clearances and especially the inlet valve to make sure that it is not riding (staying slightly open) B&S are notorious for valve problems as most of their motors do not have a valve adjustment on them, the valves stems have to be filed/ground down to get a clearance. Somewhere between 0.010 to 0.015″ is near enough for the inlets and about 0.005″ more for the exhaust. It is not critical.

I have a yamaha raptor 4 wheeler. I can not get it to start until I unplug the regulator module in the back or the conection plug on left side of machine. the electrical line comes from the regulator through the plug down into left side of engine. not sure what is in there? with machine running if I plug the lines together it will die Unplug and it will fire right up. Any help?
Thanks RW
ANSWER : You most defiantly have a short you need to trace the wires down
and find out witch one is grounded

you may even have a bad alternator that’s grounded or the regulator
the way they make things to day its very hard to test some units

its all going to be trial and error

hope this helps you

I just purchased this Yamaha boat w/Twin MR-1 140hp motors, less than 100hrs (60 prox)and the starboard motor only reached 8000rpm on a 10000 redline spec (the port motor reaches 10000rpm. I have replaced the spark plugs immediatly and now the motor reaches 9500rpm. When the plugs were replaced the plug wire top of the plugs had a black powder residue (like graphite)and #1 & 4 plug electrode end were black minimal soot and #2 & #3 had a white color residue on the ceramic.

Any suggestions to attain the full 10000rpm?

A Yamaha dealer is 100 miles, so I would like to fix myself if possible. Thanks

ANSWER : I never rec’d an answer…..I WANT A REFUND!

Spark plug wire boot grounding out on coil, 96 outback 2.5 automatic, just put new spark plug wires, new spark plugs, and new coil on. ran great for two weeks, now spark is jumping out of boot at coil on one wire, put old coil back on and still does it in the same spot. replaced wires again, and still does it in the same spot. seems to do it only under a load. Is my new spark plug on that cylinder bad? Does the coil need some insulation under it? It is the coil that sits right on top of the motor. Any ideas? thanks.
ANSWER : Sparks are high voltage, and will always follow the path of least resistance. If you can visibly see a spark (whether in a lighted area, or in the dark), that means either that a plug wire (or coil wire) is open (non conductive), or your have a carbon track on the surface where the spark can be seen, but most likely you have BOTH problems!

If you have an ohmmeter, check the resistance of each wire involved, particularly spark plug wires … which means you must be able to connect to both ends of each wire at the same, and hopefully, FLEX those wires, to be sure they don’t have a break inside that is intermittent (comes and goes)!
