  • Yup I remember reading that Billy fell on it very hard. I'm might have bookmarked the interview so if I can find it I'll post it here

  • That was one of my favourite basses! :'(

    I'd appreciate it if you could find it!

ANDERS, you are a pathetic little despot. Frankly you can stick you attitude and your ATTITUDE up your anal tract. Talk about "my ball and I'm taking it away", you small minded cyber bully.

Bad News — Yamaha C3

Bad News !!

The dealership called and it appears the engine in my '08 C3 is toast... at only 8,000 kms and change.

They quoted me $1,000 to fix !!!

I hung up in disgust after telling the guy I would call him back tomorrow.

Anyone hear of C3 engines dying so young??

  • Things started wearing out and breaking on it! If I'd had the PC, and knowledge of how to find parts for scooters, (And, the place to work on them.) then that I have now...I'd probably still be riding it...

  • I love the C3 as it has given me very very few problems and a lot of ride.

    When asked if I want a bigger CC or a cycle I laugh!

    In the country why would I want to get there any faster, it is the ride that I am after. Getting there faster does me no good.

    In the city practically no one is getting there any faster than I am!

    I am a throttle wide open, engine running as hard as it can. With the C3 I can do that without risking death.

  • It's a hassle, but a C3 scooter can be made to give 2-3 more mpg if once you get to speed, you back the power off until there's just enough to maintain that speed....I use my "Crampbuster" like a cruise control, when I'm riding long distances. (Up to 100 miles.

    I just got in from a 35 mile test ride on my scooter, after replacing it's variator with a new POlini, "Hi Speed" unit...It took 15 miles, before my scoot would even hit 40mph indicated...After that, it slowly started getting better, until the speedo was pegging on long straightaways...Because it has 6gr rollers, it's a tad sluggish getting underway. The variator looks much like a Dr.Pulley, with the weight ramps going all the way up to the top of the housing....So, once you get the heavy weights wound up good and proper, it slows very little on slight hills. At $80, it an affordable alternative to the stock Yamaha variator. I'm going to put several hundred miles on it, then put my 4gr Dr.Pulley sliders in it, and see how it does.I expect it to become a wee hot rod! I took pics of the installation I'll post tomorrow...Gabe

    • Put another 20 miles on early this am, still dragging around, and only occasionally getting past 40mph indicated, on looonnngg straightaways.I put my scoot back on the "Operating Table..." My Dr.Pulley 4gr sliders are going in next... Anything any heavier,than 4gr, is counterproductive, with the terrain being what it is hereabouts...And, after another test ride, the next thing I'm going to do is install the three 1/32" shims behind the Polini variator just to see if it helps. (It didn't do a thing, may even have hurt the performance, behind my Dr.Pulley variator, several years ago, last time I tried it.)

    SO... my '08 C3 is in the shop... apparently it's suffering from something for which the '07 C3 was recalled... the connecting rod has developed a problem. My dealer will do the work and put it under the '07 recall so I shouldn't have to pay much. However, the repair could take a couple weeks as the dealer is crazy busy.

    The good news is that I have lined up another C3 I can borrow while mine is being fixed. Sweet !!!

    • true !

    • It won't cost you a dime...See if you can get them to replace the troublesome Fuel Pump under their,"Enviromental Clause" while they have your C3 in their shop. If your scoot's one of those,(Like mine) that gets the con rod/crank replaced, it's likely an early '07 model, & may soon be having pump problems...Take care to allow yourself ample time to test ride your scooter for at least 15 miles, once you pick it up at the shop. Check for lube leaking from your transmission....The grease seal behind the variator, is really easy to flat spot when installing the crank. It takes the transmission lube 15 miles to get hot, and thin enough, to get past the seal, and leak, if it's going to...If you allow extra time , you've got time to ride back to the Shop & it's a 20 minute job to replace that seal...Gabe

    OULTON TRACK WALK SUNDAY NIGHT — Yamaha Past Masters Racing Forum


    All you racer folk we have a track walk arranged for 8pm on the Sunday night from pitlane. Michael Neeves and Keith Roissetter will be sharing their wisdom on lines for 1000's to 250's with you all and a few tips and tricks so please join them and have a giggle too.

    If you have never joined in with a track walk of mine or another instructor, you don't know what you are missing (actually some might want to after their first experience!) and you will get into the habit of walking the track yourself going forward, its invaluable to help your racing.

    Michael will be on his pushie as his knee plays him up by the second corner but will go at walking pace for those without bikes. Keith will be eating doughnuts and cracking jokes :-)

    I intend on being more organised with track walk notifications for the remainder of the season so watch this space!

I noticed that after not using it (two times) for five months one motor heats up then it clears itself and works great… I just don’t want it or them to stick closed and mess things up… I will be moving to Tennessee at the end of the year and will only use the boat in fresh water (very happy about that).

        I can t believe it s been almost a year since I took this picture — Yamaha V-Star riders

        I can't believe it's been almost a year since I took this picture.

        My bike had to go into the shop when I first got it because it had been sitting for quite a few months. The carbs were rebuilt, the oil was changed, the valves were checked and adjusted, and new tires were installed among other things.

        I got it back from the shop on June 10, 2011 and really took it out and about on the streets for the first time on June 11, 2011 which is when this was taken at Spring Mountain Ranch in Red Rock Canyon. I remember being freaked out by curves I now take at the posted limit with ease and being a bit overcautious of traffic around me as well ;-)

        It's funny how life comes around sometimes. I'm moving to Utah on June 10, 2012 because my girlfriend and I are expecting a daughter in August and I'll probably take my first exploratory ride up there on June 11, 2012. Life has quite a twisty path sometimes and I'm just happy I'm along for the ride!

          • Use rollers for experimenting...three 4gr and three 6gr weights= a set of 5gr weights. If you like, once you've finished the experiment, sell your roller weights on Ebay and buy a set of D-P weights that you found to work best!

          • I used to do all of this at three in the morning when it wascool+ quiet, & I was the only one out there! You can run your scooter with the transmission cover off and it doesn't cause issues if you tape up all of the cover's screw attach holes, as trash somehow gets into them that you have to remove!

          I went down to the local Harley dealer yesterday for some free food. Hey, I ain't turnin' down a free lunch! I also drooled all over the Softail Slim and Deluxe along with some vintage and exotic bikes they have on display. I love the bobber look of the Slim and the classic lines of the deluxe. I don't like the $17,000 price tag!

          When I was done goofing off I went out to the parking lot, fired up my V-Star 650 Classic, and rode off with a goofy grin on my face. Funny how that always seems to happen LOL!

          My bike is paid for, it's never failed to do anything I've asked it, and I love the way it rides. The Softail can wait for many more years - I'm just going to keep on riding the awesome bike I already have ;-)

            siang yang cerah ...

            ## sedikit Tips ##

            Jangan buru-buru matikan mesin mobil

            Mesin yang langsung dimatikan setelah dipacu pada kecepatan tinggi adalah cara yang kurang tepat. Karena saat itu dapur pacu baru saja bekerja keras dari menempuh perjalanan. Dalam keadaan mesin bertemperatur tinggi, tentu komponen di dalamnya masih mengembang, jika tiba-tiba dimatikan hal itu akan merusak dinding silinder. Kebiasaan mematikan mesin tiba-tiba sehabis melaju pada kecepatan tinggi dapat menyebabkan ring piston cepat aus. Selanjutnya merembet pada penurunan kompresi sehingga tenaga menjadi berkurang.

            Untuk itu saat mematikan mesin diamkan putaran iddling beberapa saat sampai mesin benar benar dalam keadaan stationer. Setelah itu putar kunci kontak ke posisi off

              OK, last pic for tonight. This one's from a truly wonderful trip I took last September to visit family in Prescott, AZ. I'd only been riding on the street for about two months and didn't want to take I-40 from Kingman, AZ all the way to Ash Fork where I'd turn south. I took historic Old Route 66 from Kingman to Seligman, AZ instead and it was a wonderful long, lonely highway! Cruising at 65 on a two lane blacktop road in the middle of nowhere felt like exactly what this bike was made to do ;-)

              One other nice bit on this leg of the trip was that I got to ride through Valentine, AZ where Dad grew up on a dairy farm just off of Route 66 - I thought that was pretty cool, too.

                Time to give the C3 a tune-up. I firmly believe Yamaha designed the sparkplug access port for midgets (not that I have anything against midgets) but there is NO WAY I can get my hand in there to remove the sparkplug cap. I ended up pulling of the platform cover !!

                %d comments

                  The C3's sparkplug is in a rather hard to reach place. Harbor Freight sells a set of two extra long (10") needle nosed pliers for about ten bucks. One has the standard straight nose. However,about 2/3 of the way down the nose, the other one has a 60 degree bend. If you'll pull your front cover. (That oblong, flat black, job that's right behind your heels.You'll need a #30 Torx Security bit, to remove it.Although a pair of pliers will work.) Then, pull your sparkplug access cover. (On the lower right side of your floorboards.) The spark plug boot is then easily removed by shining a light into the ECU area, behind the front cover, and using the slick pair of bentnosed pliers to gently work it loose. A 12" 3/8" drive extension that has a "Wobble" designed into the business end, gives added room to remove, and reinstall the plug. The best way to put the sparkplug wire back onto the plug, is to reach up under the front of the engine with your left hand, and guide the sparkplug wire boot-end over the end of the plug while holding it with the pliers.Then, tighten it on the electrode, with a 12" long 1" tip, straight screwdriver. Ease the tip down into the boot until you feel the top of the clamp on the spark plug wire, and wiggle the screwdriver while gently hitting the end of the handle until it tightens on the plug's electrode.I've heard stories of Owners tearing the end of the plugwire off, trying to remove it from the plug. Even breaking the end off of the plug! This will make this job much easier. Gabe

                • Got a new air filter & sparkplug in her and reassembled everything this afternoon with the help of my 7-year old daughter. That kid has an iron grip and was tightening those screws like there was no tomorrow.

                  Anyhow, the C3 runs nicer now... with a bit more zip !!



                TIPS IRIT BBM SEPEDA MOTOR :

                Sepeda motor sudah bukan menjadi barang istimewa, hampir semua lapisan masyarakat mempunyainya. Hemat bahan bakar menjadi perhatian khusus setelah harga semakin lama semakin mahal.Bagi orang kaya, BBM tidak menjadi masalah tapi jadi perhitungan penting untuk masyarakat menengah kebawah.Bagaimana harus hemat BBM. Simak trik agar berkendara super hemat BBM, Bahan bakar yang boros selalu menjadi masalah bagi pengendara sepeda motor. Menguras kantong dan membuat repot, harus sering kali mencari SPBU.

                Lalu, bagaimana caranya agar motor yang kita kendarai, tidak terlalu banyak ‘memakan’ bahan bakar?. Berikut tipsnya:

                1. cek tekanan ban.

                Mungkin terlihat sepele, tapi manfaatnya cukup besar dalam menekan konsumsi bahan bakar. Karena kalau tekanan angin kurang, sesuai riset, dapat menimbulkan keborosan BBM 10-15%. Jadi, pastikan tekanan ban di motor kesayangan selalu tepat sebelum mengendarainya.

                2.cek kondisi roda.

                Contoh dari kelurusan putaran, kelancaran putaran roda dan lainnya. Service bila putaran roda berat atau tak presisi, jelas akan memperlambat laju motor, pemicunya pelek tidak center(speleng),bearing roda aus, atau kurang pelumasan dan sebagainya.

                3. atur jarak main rem.

                Sebab,bila rem sampai menempel,tentu akan membuat lari motor jadi berat. Sehingga pemakaian bahan bakar tidak sesuai sama jarak tempuh motor. Makanya,atur jarak main tuas rem motor baik depan maupun belakang minimal 1/3 dari jarak main tuas secara keseluruhan. Jangan telalu rapat, karena dikhawatirkan kampas rem jadi menempel.

                4. pelumas.

                Daya lumas oli yang baik, mampu membuat putaran mesin lebih enteng serta dapat menjaga kompresi di ruang bakar sempurna. Ini akan menciptakan tenaga mesin lebih optima, sehingga lari motor lebih cepat (jarak tempuh jauh), namun bahan bakar hemat. Ingat pengantian oli yang rutin dan tidak melebihi batas servis yang di anjurkan (tiap 2.000-2.500KM) akan membuat performa mesin selalu segar dan putarannya lancer.

                5. setel katup.

                  H-5 Jamda YMJT 4...sedulur mio

                  Tekanan angin ban yang tepat akan membuat kerja ban optimal dan konsumsi bahan bakar sesuai kompresi.

                  Semisal tekanan angin kurang 6 psi ini sama dengan 20% dari tekanan angin ban untuk mobil penumpang. Ini menyebabkan pemborosan BBM sampai 5%, mengurangi umur ban hingga 25% dan kendali kemudi saat berkendara dan menikung juga kurang sesuai.

                  Begitu juga dengan kelebihan tekanan angin, ban tidak dapat membantu meredam guncangan atau kerusakan di jalan yang berakibat pada rasa tidak nyaman.

                    • I mean John Entwistle at times hammered his strings, had obscenely low action and had next to no buzz, it's crazy!

                      Also the nut slots are a little deeper than factor standard

                    • It's really hard to say, without seeing the bass. We typically try and slot the nut to about .015 but in some cases we can go lower The natural resonance of each instrument can vary heh string height as well. Iie a more resonant bass has a "vibration orbit" that is larger than a less resonant one. Meaning the string travels more and needs more room.

                    • So basically I just need to experiment a bit more?

                      Thanks John! Means alot :)

                      My attitude is the one bass I like to just leave (out of fear haha!)

                      but at a recent gig the action was kind of slowing me down.

                      I think a truss rod tweak is also in order with the shifting climates!

                    Jangan sepelekan masalah angin di ban kendaraan Sebab menurut penelitian... — YMJT (YAMAHA MIO JAWA TIMUR)

                    Jangan sepelekan masalah 'angin' di ban kendaraan. Sebab, menurut penelitian terbaru, 'kurang angin' pada ban menyumbang potensi boros bahan bakar tiap kendaraan yang pada akhirnya menyebabkan biaya perjalanan menjadi lebih tinggi.

                    karena ban kendaraan kurang angin, konsumsi bahan bakar pun akan meningkat yang pada akhirnya akan menyebabkan si pemilik kendaraan membeli bensin yang lebih banyak dari yang semestinya.

                    pengendara yang mematikan AC ketika berkendara dalam cuaca hangat juga menyumbang pemborosan bahan bakar. Karena, 'niat baik' untuk menghemat bahan bakar dengan mematikan AC diklaim malah akan menambah konsumsi bahan bakar kendaraan.

                    Alasannya, ketika AC dimatikan dan jendela dibuka, maka hambatan angin yang diciptakan oleh jendela yang terbuka secara signifikan dapat mempengaruhi aerodinamika mobil dan karena itu akan meningkatkan konsumsi bahan bakar.

                    Tapi ada beberapa langkah pengendara dapat dilakukan untuk membuat bahan bakar yang mereka miliki jadi lebih irit seperti memeriksa tekanan ban

                      Ok it s getting close to the time for replacing my rear tire on my 650 custom — Yamaha V-Star riders

                      Ok, it's getting close to the time for replacing my rear tire on my 650 custom. I have narrowed it down to two tires:

                      Metzler ME 880 Marathon or the Shinko 777

                      The Metzler is more expensive, but that's what was on the bike when I bought it (it was used when I bought it) and I know how it's going to run. I have yet to see a bad review from someone who actually checked the pressure of the tire also. But it's twice the price.

                      The Shinko is half the price, but I've seen mixed reviews from the same type of people, and the wear ratings are lower.

                      Any inputs on these two tires are much appreciated.

                        Took the boat out last night for the first ride of the season. Starboard engine was revving 1k less than the Port. I changed the spark plugs last week - pulled the air filter while on the lake - noticed the #4 spark plug wire wasn't plugged in - runs awesome now!

                        Gotta love how simple these boats are for winter/summer-izing

                          after 6 months on a trailer in a storage lot, I took my 07 AR230 home for Spring Cleaning. Fired up after about 5 seconds of cranking. I stared at it for a while racking my brain on what else to do as I had just replaced the oil and plugs at the end of last year.

                          Ended up charging the batteries (dual deep cell marines so it took a day) and running it 2 days straight to get rid of the old gas.

                          Love not having an outdrive at times like this.

                            Drove my C3 home from work last night. Was about 70 degrees and it just stalled out after 6 miles. Wouldn't start back up, wouldn't kick start. Had to walk it home. Had just filled the tank that morning. Later that evening it started right up with key. Thoughts?

However i still can't understand how could it break during winter spent in warm storage.Good news is that you can buy it much cheaper http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p5197.m570. l1313&_nkw=yamaha+v+max+stator&_sacat=0

                            I have an '08 1100 with just over 19k on it and I've been having more and more problems with clunks and starting it. When it's cold it won't start if I touch the choke at all (weather in the 70s), and then I have to make sure I give it gas/adjust the choke to let it warm up. If I've been out riding and it's nice and hot, it has a hard time starting if I don't wait long enough. When I finally get it started in these cases, I have noticed a fuel smell, and right after I start moving again it'll sputter a little, and then be fine. To me this sounds like something with the carbs, but it's also been doing the notorious 'clunk' at times, more on shut off than start, and it seems to be getting worse. From what I've heard this is an issue with the starter clutch/TPS.

                            Does anyone have any experience with similar problems? I've found information, I'm just not real sure where to start to narrow down which is the actual cause of my problem(s)..
