  1. Need Your Advice Please

    General Discussions
    $3500 for a 13 year old bike soon to be 14. it better have new tires and a fresh tune up. (spark plugs, oil etc) in my opinion cosmetic upgrades set off warning signs. too many guys buy cheap chinese ebay garbage. if it has name brand stuff that's different. what does KBB say its worth...
  2. Cracked headlight - warranty issue?

    General Discussions
    depends on how old the bike is and if you have purchased and extended warranty. if it's older than 12 months and you have not purchased the extended warranty it will not be covered. they might be able to sweet talk yamaha into replacing it. kawasaki was very generous with this sort of thing...
  3. FTEcu Yamaha R6 2017, I am not an expert HELP

    General Discussions
    no. you don't. it does nothing for the bike. the only reason you'd block them off is to get an accurate reading for an AFR meter and a narrowband O2 sensor used in a auto tuner. but blocking these off are absolutely not required for any kind of performance reasons. it doesn't even stop...
  4. Help! Fairing bolts and rivets

    General Discussions
    I do wish they'd put "kits" together. when I worked at a dealership as a mechanic I had to look at an exploded diagram and pick out every single fastener, foam block, sticker there was for the bike. they all come individually. or it would be nice if I ordered a front fairing for a bike it had...
  5. Ohm testing power wire for coils.

    Garage / Mechanical Help
    wires are wires. if it's higher than any other wire then the wire has some issues. replace it. btw, you can pull the pins out of the ecu connector to replace them. however, I do not know where you can buy a new pin for the wire end.

  11. Help: Power Loss after a few minutes of riding

    Garage / Mechanical Help
    make sure that the fuel hose isn't being pinched when the tank is lowered into position. running fine then dying out seems to be a fuel related issue to me. your fuel pump may be going out. once it gets hot from operation it loses it's ability to supply a sufficient pressure to operate. if...
  12. AntiGravity Battery Black Friday Deals

    General Discussions
    but they're probably fitted with a regulator designed for lithium battery charging in mind. also, lithium batteries need periodical balance charging. this requires an aftermarket battery charger you need to use also. if one cell in the pack gets off from the others it will damage the whole...

    I wouldn't use a lithium battery in a bike after seeing one blow up a alternator in a car. the battery needs charged in a different way than the stock regulator/rectifiers work.

  16. New (old) bike, thorough maintenance; what haven’t I considered?

    Garage / Mechanical Help
    yes the melted connector was it's biggest issue. the wiring heats up from corrosion. if it's charging 14v at a min of 5000 rpm it's in working condition.

    if you want to combat span consider assigning someone else mod duties. the few you have now (except skeeter) never post here anymore. they aren't keeping the forum organized and clean. I wouldn't mind taking over some duties. I've been a member since 2004 and come here every other day or so.

    the only aftermarket company I trust since I've previously worked at a dealership as a mechanic is Rick's motorsport electrics. and we don't care if you're a post whore loll. partzilla is another site that sells oem parts at a discount. as for an adapter, so far every kit i've had my...
