I was wondering if any of you guys in States might be able to give me some advice.

A local musician here in Reading UK is going to LA to try and get signed in the next few weeks and his plan seems to be to busk and give out demo's.

I was wondering if anyone had any advice so he can come up with a more construction plan.

He's 18, good looking, great drummer, ambitious and has written a load of songs, singing and playing guitar.

I've played with him on drums in the past and I'm really impressed that he's willing to leave everything to try and get signed.

Hello fellow jetboaters! We are so excited to connect with you here as there are very few jetboat owners in Australia. We live on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and our jetboat is the most awesome thing we could have ever bought. We take it out all of the time and our furry little friends love to join us. We have a baby on the way and can't wait to introduce her to the wonderful world of boating. If you want any advice on holidays to Australia, don't hesitate to ask myself or husband Pedr Francis. Thanks guys - we can't wait to visit America some time soon!

  • Wow...the Hamilton Island area looks amazing! Do you live on the island? Looks like it has a small population (not including tourists? Google Earth is cool to use to look at the areas people live!

  • If you google the island you will find out more, it's a really fun island with lots to do. We live in Mackay and can either launch from here, or the faster way is to launch from Airlie Beach which is an hour and a half drive. Mackay is a hub for tourism, sugar cane and the mining industry. Our region is very rich in natural resources.

  • Hello Melissa! Unbelievably beautiful down there! I have always wanted to go there. I have a question for you. What kind of fish, crabs, seafood do you catch there? I am from Stafford, Virginia, and most of our days are spent on the Chesapeake or the Potomac River. Blue crab, Striped bass, oysters, clams, mackeral, blue fish, all kinds of fish are caught here, but I bet it is a lot different down there.

OK chaps. Not one to flout FEEBay regs, but hopefully attached is a link to a lovely Att for sale very close to me. He states collection only, but in the full blurb he says he will send anywhere in the world! I know he had this up a couple of times earlier in the year at a much higher price. If you want it, you may get it a bit cheaper with bank transfer payment. Please hurry up and buy it, I am getting more tempted to sell next doors first born, with every passing minute.

I am driving a chainsaw prop plane — Yamaha C3

I am driving a chainsaw/prop plane...

The super salty Massachusetts roads and my winter driving have taken their toll on the exhaust line, which disconnected from the engine. I feel like I need to wear hearing protection while driving as it is so loud at full throttle! On the plus side, I get a lot of street cred driving through downtown.

Now, to be honest, it did come loose, not during normal driving conditions on the street, but when I had her off-roading on deeply rutted dirt back roads. So I dare say that I may have been pushing things just a wee bit.

Sigh....

I'll have to get that fixed.

Very sorry to all concerned, especially Paul Bowling who generously offered me his tickets, but I have finally had to accept that I can't make it to the D&D this year... My three biggest debtors have evaporated leaving me skint and stranded. One died, another has buggered off to France to sort out the mess of his ex-wife having their daughter sectioned and the third has been arrested for a massive property fraud! How's your luck??? Anyway, I will be with you in spirit and am working on having a bit more of a season next year. Have a great time :-)

I just got back from a nice ride on a sunny calm afternoom...The first thing my gps revealed was that with a 130/90-10 front tire, the gps + speedometer run about even (+/- 1/2 mph) up to 40mph... After that point, when the speedometer is past the tuning fork, (Where one would think 45-46mph would be.) my scooter was running 43.4 mph. In the rolling hills hereabouts, once I reached 40mph and started going up and down half mile or so long hills, the road speed varied from 38 to 48 mph, according to the severity of the hills, with the average speed running 42mph...This is waaayyy improved from the last gps run I made in the spring, with my modded stock variator. (3/32" shim behind the variator and D/P 4gr sliders...) That would run out to 38mph or so, hit the limiter and quit at 43mph...It also explains, the much quicker 52 mile trips I've been making to Walmart for groceries, since I installed the Malossi Multivar variator. So, there you have it! Call Joel Sacher in New York City, at (631) 470-2296 <roselleimports@gmail.com> and get a Malossi Variator P/N 5113603 ($89.95 + 15.00 S+H) on the way...$105 is an inexpensive, "Bolt on" mod, that actually increases performance enough to put a grin on your face, + make it worth the possible 6 week wait to get it fron Italy! I've got a Malossi drive belt, #6112741 on the way, & will test it as soon as it arrives. (#6112742 is the Kelvar version) Gabe

Estimados amigos: No suelo escribir cosas tan personales en el foro, pero necesito nuestro consejo en lo que puede ser una decisión crucial, por favor tomarlo como tal.

Desde hace un tiempo sospecho que mi mujer me engaña. Ya saben, las cosas típicas como esas llamadas a casa que cuando descuelgas no contesta nadie.

Mi mujer sale con amigas últimamente, pero le pregunto sus nombres y me dice que no las conozco, que son amigas del trabajo... Me quedo despierto para verla llegar en taxi, pero ella baja por la calle a pie y a lo lejos escucho un coche alejarse del que se ha bajado a la vuelta de la esquina. ¿Quizás no volvió en taxi...?

El otro día agarre su móvil sólo para mirar la hora y se puso como loca gritándome que nunca agarre otra vez su móvil y que si la estaba espiando.

Nunca he hablado de esto con mi mujer. Creo que en el fondo no quiero saber la verdad, pero anoche ella volvió a salir y decidí que iba a investigar. Estacione mi moto cerca del garaje y me escondí detrás de ella de manera que tuviera una buena visión de toda la calle cuando ella llegara a casa.

En ese momento, agachado detrás de la moto, me di cuenta de que la tapa de balancines perdía algo de aceite. Y... aquí viene mi pregunta: ¿Reaprieto los tornillos y me la juego a que se pasen de rosca o me mando y cambio la junta?

Winter is definitely coming, it's getting colder fast. Sending my fat lady into hibernation. Having one look on her pretty fat ass :-). She's going to sleep and I start dreaming about fair weather and the moment that spring is sending out her first signals and it's time to wake her up. At first gently, rolling her outside, let her sniff the crisp air, letting her warm up in the first true sunshine. Then ad the necessary fluids and a good massage with sponge and soft cloth before flipping the key and let her rumble for the first time. From that time on enough with the gentility, time to kick her out on the road and letting her scream, howl, stomping that clutch and cutting trough that cold morning air left over from winter, returning home with that red cold face and loving it. Mmmm, I'm already dreaming.

I don't post here much but i have a new problem with my warrior. It will run fine for about 2 minutes from a cold start but after that it will bog out at anything more than 1/8-1/4 throttle. What i know is that there is no water in fuel and from the little time i have looked at it due to being away at college it appears to be an ignition or stator issue

  • Did you pull the gas tank to make sure there is no water in the bottom? There are dead spots in the tanks that just draining will not get. Happened on my sons Raptor 80. It had just enough water in the dead areas that it would slosh and mix with the fuel. After a few minutes of riding it would bog and act stupid. Once I pulled the tank and dumped it and cleaned it, never had an issue again. We dumped the fuel into a bucket and when it settled, I was shocked at how much water there was. I had drained the tank before that and it obviously didn't get it all. Also you could try adding some Heet to the fuel. We do that on every tank full now.

  • I didn't pull the tank but what is weird is that i had been riding it all day at an orv park, then later that day i washed it and rode it for probably 20 min in my backyard to dry it off then parked it in my garage. When it started acting up is a couple days later my dad went to move it, Also the battery is now draining while sitting, so me and my dad thought maybe some water made it's way into the stator assembly but idk if that could cause whats seems like a misfire kinda like when a car is due for spark plug wires.

  • Stator runs in the engine oil so doubtful it affected it there. Could be a break in the insulation coming out of the side cover, though.

Any suggestions on strings — YAMAHA Attitude Ltd

Any suggestions on strings?

10 comments
  • Joshua - the string gague doesn't necessarily reflect how "hard" it is to play the string. The tension har more of an impact here and tension does not really relate directly to the gague since the strings are spun and not solid. There are light strings that are really stiff and heavy strings that are like rubberbands and the other way around. All depending och how they are made and for what use. The thing you can do - except for trying them all - is to ask around of course.

  • Thanks, Magnus Andersson! I'm learning so much through this forum, and I'm amazed to realize how much I never knew! Bass is a different beast entirely!

  • ROTOSOUND ! Its the only way !

The Long Awaited Pearce Preamp and Attitude Video! If anyone was ever wondering how to get close to Billy Sheehan tone wise, this is your best bet at the moment! I will trade this preamp for two EBS Billy Sheehan pedals (or equivalent value!), when they become available!

3 comments
  • Nice find on the bottom shelf! Not sure if it's just the audio in the mix or what but your other rig demo IMO has that thing that this one is lacking. The part where you blend the 2 amps & get the beefy, smooth tone with the sustain sold me on the B5R. It's almost like a in phase out of phase thing with the pick ups/amps. Sounds like there is compression somewhere in your mix in this video but not like your other demos. Have your ever tried the harmonizer with any of these rigs like the live Talas stuff? I was able to simulate it with an ART Night bass EFX/Preamp.

  • Well, to address all the issues at once I should tell you that as a stand alone unit the Pearce has it flaws, but as a component part of a more complicated setup. after all the issues are dealt with, (compression, noise gates, crossovers) the unit really does shine! Like I said, I only was using the unit alone, direct, and with nothing else, not even an EQ to enhance anything, and it still makes the Attitude sound amazing.

  • Understood! Nothing is perfect or will do anything & everything off the shelf or as is. That's part of what I love about guys like Billy & EVH. Mismatch, hack ,tap & drill, taboo stuff to others if ya know what I mean. I love these little ideas you have about how to use the ATT bass with your gear, using line outs & stereo comps as A/B type units to keep the stereo outputs independent with one amp. True to the spirit of the aforementioned. Myself I have 6 zillion gear configurations depending on the what & where the gig is & keep learning of more niffty little economical methods from you guys. In fact that Comp/gate unit we both use, your the first other guy I ever heard have anything good to say about it. not that it matters but it was nice to see another person using something that others would dismiss.

Hey guys I don't know if I shared this little secret. But if you are wanting a Dr pulley Variator set up but they don't make them for our model scooter? Well here is a solution. Buy a Dr Pulley for a Zuma 50 or BMS 50 it will work. The one thing you have to do is remove the teeth on the ramp plate. Using a 13mm drill bit you can drill out the teeth of the ramp and BANG you have a Dr. Pulley Variator setup. I have all Dr. Pulley in my C3. Dr. Pulley Variator,Dr. Pulley HIT Clutch and Dr Pulley 3.5 Sliders. I'am very pleased with the out come. Hope all is well friends. Scoot Scoot

  • I second that. My Bruva and i both use the dr pulley variator. It took 10 minutes to remove the teeth and it fit perfectly. My bro has 3.5g, i use 5.5g dr pulley sliders. I would like to try 4.5...

  • THe 4gr Sliders work best for my 230 lbs and the hilly terrain hereabouts in a Dr.Pulley variator...The 4.5 gr sliders are a bit slower getting started off & getting up to speed...However, they get 2-3 more mph in the process...

  • I'm in the process of turning my 5.5gr dr sliders to 4.4

  • If you mix three 3.5gr weights, with three 5.5gr weights, you'll have the equalivalent of a set of 4.5gr weights...Be sure and mark one set with paint or magic marker if you do this, as it's impossible to tell them apart without a way to weigh them...:)

  • How stereo and mono modes are activated?

  • typically the knob closest to output jacks is a push activated knob and that selects the stereo/mono.... the middle knob push in/out is a high cut for the tone control.

  • Been a great help, thank you

  • Maybe I can get Dave Bown to chime in and discuss his thoughts on the sound differences between my ATT II and his ATT III. He had both at same time and had interesting thoughts about the sounds of each.. He said he prefered my ATT II... I can believe it. BUT I played well over 500 shows on that bass. Just another testimony as to the AWESOMENESS behind the A.R.E. and I.R.A. technology.

  • very interesting. get him to chime in please .

  • Thanks for all this info Dave! Very much appreciated! :)

Hi guys, help/suggestions needed. Finally sent the scratchplate from my 95 Att Spec off to Aurora Projects 3 weeks ago. Cheque and scratchplate in jiffy bag. 3 weeks later, no sign, short story, the twats done a runner!!

So I have no scratchplate, can't use my main gigging bass, having to use a F****r and Cataldo JAEBird. Any ideas where I can get a scratchplate from? I can't even use my old one as a template, as I won't get it back. Well hacked off and seriously sulking!!!

  • So, if he had had the courtesy to respond to his mail or to have an ansaphone with a message on, I would have wasted less of my life on this. I have been in almost exactly his same situation but dealt with it better than that in my opinion.

  • Many, many thanks Andy, you saved my girl!!! Beers on me!

  • Marvelous!! Glad it all worked out for you. Would be great to share beers with ya buddy!

All you lovely club members out there its time to help you club recruit the next lucky lot to come and race with us next season.

As you know Bemsee's ground breaking Open Day is on Sunday the 9th December and we are working hard behind the scenes to prepare it all.

Part of that preparation are the promotional leaflets with all the information on them for new racers to "Come racing with Bemsee in 2013".

Mike and Tracey have packs of these leaflets to give to you and we would appreciate it if you can distribute them in any bike shop or bike outlet you know. We have already started to our bit in getting the leaflets out there, so if you would like some please contact Mike or Tracey in the Race Office.

The more we get out there the more people we can help love this sport of ours. They just don't know how good it really is, but they will get a taste of the enthusiasm on the 9th.

Thanks for your help in advance if you get some leaflets out there for your club.

Favorite Billy Moment — YAMAHA Attitude Ltd

Favorite Billy Moment...

At Yamaha Attitude Day gathering, there were some kind gentlemen who filmed/recorded the proceedings and conducted interviews with the guests. One of the questions asked of me was "What is your favorite Billy Sheehan moment?" I think my answer was "the moment when Dennis Chambers counts off the song "Niacin" however, it occured to me afterwards that my favorite moment (which isn't actually mine) occured when my good friend Mike and his wife bumped into Billy across the street from Guitar Center here in Sherman Oaks. This was right before High Bias came out but Niacin had performed some of the songs at the Baked Potato which we attended… so they exchanged greetings and some pleasant conversation about the recent shows and each went about their days. Well, before my friend got too far he hears "MIKE! MIKE! Wait Up!" and Billy , who had run to his car and back to hand him a copy of the as of yet unreleased High Bias cd. Wow! had I had my wits about me, that would have been my answer… so I figure I'd state here, for the record, THAT is my fav Billy monent. Thanks everybody! Peas!

Hello attituders , I'm new new here my name is aiden , from Australia :) . I'm chasing info about my ATT custom 1992 model made in Taiwan ?? I've owned this bass for around 8 years and has seen little use :( . The problem is I think the neck has some issues , twisted/ bent ! The bridge saddles are as low as they can go and action is still very high , I cannot get a decent tone on the e and a string above the twelfth fret . New neck ? Is there a replacement ? Also what timber the body is made from? Is it worth fixing ? All replies appreciated . Thank you .

1 comments
  • My advice would be to take it to a luthier for advice as without seeing the bass, it's difficult to diagnose. Only then I think can you work out if it's worth Spending money on. If you can, post a pic or too of the bass, that may encourage more comments or advice.

Hi guys. n gals. — YAMAHA Attitude Ltd

Hi guys (n'gals),

Compression/overdrive question.....what's the favoured placement amongst attitude users? comp before or after overdrive?

6 comments
  • Thanks guys, good info here! I have an EBS multidrive that doesn't work well before comp, but is quite ok after comp. Have also tested an ibanez TS9B which works great, but I think the new EBS pedal will solve all problems as you explained so well, Greg.

  • You are very welcome David.

    The TS9B like my Nova Drive has a clean blend, whereas your Multidrive like my Bad Monkey doesn't. I would guess that a clean blend is essential to make drive behave when put before compression in that case - as the new BS EBS pedal will allow, in a round-about way.

  • Well said! I seem to remember Billy explaining his setup here on the Attitude page aswell.....and if I remember correctly he had an Ibanez TS before compression. Can't seem to find the post to verify this though.

Hi guys! I'm about to buy this 1995 Virago xv750 which is in really good shape visually but I want to know if the engine sound is OK because when it sits on the side stand (a little tilted to the left) you can hear a slight knocking sound in front of it. It's actually much more quiet than on the video. When you put the bike in vertical position (ready to ride) it dissapears. The bike has abt 38K km on it. I'm not an expert - this will be my first Virago so I wanted to hear from you if this is normal. Thanks in advance for your help. http://youtu.be/3RAmQhOnWVk

Came into a problem yesterday riding. I heard my chain making noise and very loose. My adjusters are maxed out. It finally threw it off after a hill climb. The sprocket teeth look sharp/worn out. Can anyone suggest an "economy" chain/sprocket set? Its all stock and I ride maybe 8 times a year.

9 comments
  • You would probably have to take the Cain adjusters all the way out then take a link out of your chain and then tighten It... It has happend to mine before

  • ebay

  • You should get the chain and sprockets together. Primary Drive sells good sets.

Info for UK riders who store their bike in winter — Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog

Info for UK riders who store their bike in winter;

Motorcyclists storing their bike for winter could be unwittingly invalidating their insurance if they declare it off road to the DVLA.

MCN reader Alan Charlton, 64, was told his underwriter would no longer insure his Kawasaki ZZR1400 after he completed a Statutory Off-Road Notification.

To be covered against theft, broker Swinton said he needed ‘laid-up’ insurance from another underwriter.

Charlton, from Harrogate, North Yorks, said: “I hadn’t known it wasn’t covered until I mentioned it was SORN.”

Swinton said: ‘Bikers should always double check with their insurance provider that they will still be covered when they declare their vehicle off the road.

‘In Mr Charlton's case cover was maintained until it was due for renewal.’

  • Is that Cave storage or what?

  • Yes it's called cave storage and it's an actual cave, it's 65 degrees all year round

  • What's the humidity in there year round ?

  • I no longer store my boat there because we bought a new house with a garage. Not sure what the humidity is in there but they will always have our boats out by mid April before the heat and humidity skyrocketed

This might, or might not, be the place to post such a comment. But...given that Small and myself spent a lot of time with you chaps...I thought that you might want to know that Small has a bit of a medical issue.

He's got a tumour on his lung and is needing an op that, should be done within the next week or so.

The prog is good for his recovery, having been caught in the early stages.

The geeza is very special to me and I wish the best for his outcome.

It humbles me that, he is concerned that he has time to build my Aprilia up to top spec.

I think he needs to be in top spec first.

Love Colonel

  • +1 on the Nova Drive. I have modded several pedals to get closer to the sound I was looking for. I had great luck with my modded Sparkle Drive. I am really excited to get the Sheehan pedal, it works extremely well and sounds great !
