Dear OEM Seat Hater:

I installed my Maxgasser (https://www.facebook.com/group s/128392073868809/) a little under a year ago. I am hear to attest to its remarkable quality and comfort. Rick's years of experience in fabrication shows in facet of the build--all the way down to each stitch and staple; and his customer service is on par to that of any highly-rated manufacturing plant. Throughout my build, he exercised endless amounts of patience (with me and my non-stock material) and responded lickety-split to all my emails and text messages.

The seat's 100-mile maiden voyage was SO comfortable and was hands down the most enjoyable "long" drive to date. It was like I was driving a pillow that was made by pouring foam into a mold I made of my butt. My ass bone wedges wonderfully into the "backrest" that the "raised" pillion provides the driver giving my lower back the much needed support it had been aching for. My family jewels no longer feel like they're getting crushed into diamonds. Waiting for green lights, I now don't feel like I barely have me feet on the ground and it doesn't feel like I'm straddling a cow. And most importantly, the wife had the best ride yet she said. She said she no longer felt like she was sitting on a tree trunk with a couple of knots pushed up into her ass cheeks. She enjoys the "elevated" sitting position finding, much to my chagrin, comfort in now being able to know the reason why the cars are "standing still". I like that I no longer see her in my mirrors because of her peeking out from behind my helmet in order to see what's going on in front of us.

After 8 months and somewhere around 6500 miles of Florida's humid sunshine, the seat has shown no signs of wear and is as comfortable as the day I unboxed it. I still receive all kinds of complements from Maxxers and other motorcyclists who venture to hop into the saddle.

  • I have a '79 XS650 and a '78 Triumph Bonneville. I would rate them about even in the vibration they produce.

  • OK Tom.N. i only know the old triumph from the 1950es, the one i had was from -52 (Thunderbird 650), and it had a lot more vibrations as the XS650 Yamaha. Shall we call it a draw Tom.N?? hahaha

  • A 78 Bonneville should not shake as much, as the frames were upgraded following Doug Hele's work on the 500 Twin at the end of the 60's for the Daytona Beach Race. The development on the 500 was shared with the 650. If you look at a Thunderbird frame, you will find radical differences in the bracing, swingarm area and gooseneck.

  • With a 3.18 gearing, a 130/90-10 rear tire, a Jiangwayne exhaust, & a Dr.Pulley variator, w/4gr sliders, I was hitting 52.3mph gps @ 9,150rpms, lightly hitting the limiter,coming off of the biggest hill in the county...However, for everyday riding, it started off slowly,& would only run 42 mph... Crying about hills, like Mainerd G. Krebbs on Dobie Gills, used to do about finding a job! :) But, it got 117mpg.

  • Bruce sounds like you have your ride nicely tuned...

  • I got rid of the 4" K&N airfilter, the Fuel Controller, & the high gearing + went back to the factory airbox tweeked just a bit, with stock gearing...Installed a Malossi Multivar variator their 6gr rollers, & their white clutch spring...Now I run 48mph off most of the local hills and stay around 43-44mph in between them @ 108mpg...I just got the rest of the Malossi parts to make my scooter's transmission all Malossi,"Over Range." Their Torque Driver, Fly Clutch, & Clutch Bell, A Clutch Spring kit, & Kelvar Performance belt...I'm going to install it a bit at a time & see what each added part does for performance...

A bit off topic, but who better to ask than this group? I want to try picks-on-the-electric-drill thing, but not quite sure where to begin, besides the drill and standard picks, which I have. Are there certain picks that are better than others? And how can you attach the picks (understanding multiple picks are used at once) to the drill bit?

the gear box : is it normal that it makes a big TICK every time you change gear ? first to second to third gear up or down ?? is that ok ?

the 2nd gear on low spead? no power at all and the whole engine shaking or the gear box i don't know.

my v star done 12800KM only so i don't think there is any mechanical problem for those ticking i hear

for the truth i thought that i will be satisfied more have a v star.

The Club is delighted to announce a three year agreement with TSL Timing for the provision of timing services at all meetings in 2013 and beyond. TSL are well known and respected for their top-level service to BSB and others, now the same facilities will be offered to Bemsee riders in the paddock and beyond.

The new TSL service will see the introduction of “live” timing services both on the web, to enable friends and family to track Bemsee races in real-time as well as on mobile devices. This will enable riders to pick up the same data and also observe real-time notices from Race Control, valuable if you can’t hear the tannoy!

This reorganisation was negotiated as the Club’s previous timing service, RS Timing has decided to disband. The Club thanks Ray and Craig Smith of RS for their huge support of Bemsee over many years.

We hope riders will welcome and take advantage of the new facilities that the service from TSL will offer.

Is there anyone that can tell me alittle about tailraising. Is it hard to do — Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog

Is there anyone that can tell me alittle about tailraising? Is it hard to do? does it affect the bike alot?

8 comments
  • It's not hard to do. The bike worked alot better after, much easier in corners. I think you have to make two plates where the length between the holes should be 5mm less. On my bike it raised the back with 35 mm. I also lowered the front with 10mm wich gave a Bulldog that cornered really good.

  • I checked at BT1100.se, if you search for "Höja sitthöjden" the you will find some posts regarding this. Original length between holes on the dogbones is 125mm if you changed that to 120mm you will raise the rear with 35mm. It's possible to do by your self but it's good if you have a friend with you when you make the change. You have to remove both mufflers to be able to remove the long bolts. Mine was really hard to remove...so start using some fluids (5-56 or similar) before you will do the actual work.

  • Tobias, would it be possible to post a photo of your bike, seen from the side, to visualize the effects of the tail rising and front lowering. I'm 'only' interested in the visual effects...

It has been noted on someones blog that they have the only 270 degree rephased engine that is alive and running in the USA, this is total BS. I have been supplying my rephase pins for around 10 years with most going to the USA, I think to date I have shipped around 75 pins to the USA. Professional Motorcycle Tuning is the ONE AND ONLY source of these pins in the world, I also thve cams (not cut and twisted, YUK) and Ignitions to suit this awesome modification, thanks Daryl Hutcheon

  • It's good to see that Daryl is still a people person. I wrote him years ago asking a simple question, and received a very crass response.

  • "So we did it! This is possibly the only runnning 270 XS650 Engine in the US. If not, I'm ok with that - because it's still freaking cool!" Hugh Owings definitely did not say That he had "the only 270 degree rephased engine" in the USA. Mr. Hutcheon needs to get his facts straight.

  • OK guys, 1st, did I mention any names?? NO, I just made it clear that it was not the only one in the USA and Brett if you have still got that email I would like to read it. 277 is not better than 270, it is only the cheap way of getting it close, but not a perfect 90 degree crank as I do with all of my engines.

  • Mick for the last couple of years after my bike has wintered in the garage, I have had to strip down the carbs and found that the needle inlet valves had both seized in, preventing fuel from entering the carbs.There is pitting and corrosion on the aluminium needles. On reading about Bio-fuel addatives, the following is a piece from Wickepedia about bio-ethanol: " Ethanol contains soluble and insoluble contaminants.[31] These soluble contaminants, halide ions such as chloride ions, have a large effect on the corrosivity of alcohol fuels. Halide ions increase corrosion in two ways; they chemically attack passivating oxide films on several metals causing pitting corrosion, and they increase the conductivity of the fuel. Increased electrical conductivity promotes electric, galvanic, and ordinary corrosion in the fuel system. Soluble contaminants, such as aluminum hydroxide, itself a product of corrosion by halide ions, clog the fuel system over time.

    Ethanol is hygroscopic, meaning it will absorb water vapor directly from the atmosphere. Because absorbed water dilutes the fuel value of the ethanol (although it suppresses engine knock) and may cause phase separation of ethanol-gasoline blends, containers of ethanol fuels must be kept tightly sealed. This high miscibility with water means that ethanol cannot be efficiently shipped through modern pipelines, like liquid hydrocarbons, over long distances.[32] Mechanics also have seen increased cases of damage to small engines, in particular, the carburetor, attributable to the increased water retention by ethanol in fuel".... and so it goes on. So the above could be the reason for the corrosion on the needle valves. What do you think?

  • Not low at all, it would need to be a very big bump. I've got it fitted to my bike with a "plus 50%" oil pump and paper filter/ cooler in the clutch cover. All works great and my engine is quiet. No more holes in my sump filter, idle my bike for a few minutes at start up to allow the oil to circulate and warm up then ready to do whatever I like with it. http://s1306.beta.photobucket. com/user/pcoumbe/media/1978%20 Yamaha%20XS650%20Special/DSCF2 916_zpsda28ea2d.jpg.html?sort= 3&o=16

Question my FZ6R is a year old next month I have a problem with it when it runs... — Yamaha FZ6R Owners

Question, my FZ6R is a year old next month, I have a problem with it, when it runs cold or hot she is fine, but when first out on her and she gets to the 45 to 55c she will cut out between gear changes and it bump starts when u let the clutch out. Remember when bikes had a choke ? Well I know injection hasn't but it does feed extra fuel untill running temp is reached, is like it stops giving extra fuel too early just like a choke being switched off too quick. Now I don't know if these bikes have a cat or not, but if it does then doing this could destroy it. It is due its 10,000 service next month although I have only done 4500 and will get them to look at it, just wondered if anyone had the same probs ?

Loved squeezing every new mph out of her as I did upgrades. Still gonna do a met soon but sure happy w the way it turned out. Unfortunately as you know not many parts and I had to do a lot of fab work. Dumped so much $ into this one it wont be getting ridden for a while. Strictly a show bike

  • How is the HID headlight working out for ya? Is your system charging enough to keep it on long periods of time?

  • I actually have a seperate battery in my trunk space running all extra accessories like my gps is hard wired to it and I have 2 led strips under the bike on a toggle switch I just charge the extra battery.

  • The hid is awesome though super bright

Another quickie is there anyone in Dorset. or between B mth and Dorchester — Yamaha Past Masters Racing Forum

Another quickie - is there anyone in Dorset (or between B'mth and Dorchester) who is into (or wants to get into) YPMRC - I wobbled around in 1992 with KRC and BEMSEE on a TZR. I've recently picked up a cosmetically tatty J reg TZR250 with the view to getting it race ready and backmarking a couple of races! My guru in those days was Sir Martin Taylor but alas I'm a fair distance from the hallowed piggeries these days and too old and slow too. Does anyone want to get involved in any way...I also have Honda (and Aprilia) RS250s which I'd like to ride this year as well (funds permitting) - just putting the idea out there - could even share...any suggestions welcome?? Hope to see y'all at some point soon!!

  • Paul, you ain't too old to give it a go. Get it running and get out there. I trust it will be in Mr Hogan's paint scheme:-)

  • Cheers Martin Ratcliffe that's a great idea - it's ironically in Marlboro at the moment...but wasn't it Lambert & Butler that would have been more appropriate for Paul...(eh Calvin Hogan...??!!) Has anyone got any pics of Paul's colours and would Calvin fancy testing it for me???

  • I might have some pics of us together. Might even have some of his paint on an old bit of bodywork I have lol. I would be happy to whizz it round Mallory when it's done

  • You're on!! PM on its way!!

  • We do not have the fixtures set up for stretching swing arms. However, we do coating work for a shop that I believe does swing arms for quads. I am pretty sure they make aftermarket arms. I know most of the guys we work with will go aftermarket rather than just stretching stock due to the stress and support that needs to be added.

  • Personal message sent

  • Items are still for sale... buyer decided to have us powder coat some other items for him. Items are still available for purchase

Qual a média km/l das motos dos irmãos(ãs)? A minha faz 14-15km/l na cidade e 17-18km/l na estrada. Queria melhorar esse consumo.

  • Isso de altitude é pra quem anda Oiapoque ao Chuí rs altitudes minimas acho que nem altera tanto a mistura, ou será que estou enganado? Helio Góes

  • Em altitudes tem que regular o giclê

  • Altitude é para viagens ao Peru por exemplo. Tem que tem uma noção senão pode ficar no caminho caso precise regular. Frio só tive problema uma vez em Montevidéo quando deixei ela parada no frio (próximo de 0) por 3 dias e quando fui ligar não pegava, como se tivesse afogado, e tive que dar carga. Alan, o que você disse sobre a injeção está correto, mas vai que resolve dar problema na estrada? Tem que tomar cuidado com a Lei de Murphy! rs

Seems there is an informal EBS announcement of sorts:

  • Hi Cesar,

    Found the source of the limited edition rumor.

    Some US stores placed pre-orders on the pedal from our US distributor, and

    our distributor made a pre-order from us on 100 units. However, the pedal

    itself is not made in any limited edition, so this only refer to the first

    100 units to hit the states, not the numbers we make it in.

    Thank you,

    Ralf, EBS

  • My local musicstore called EBS and booked one for me, they said there will be enough of pedals for the market. But now i`m safe to have one, probably in February. :-) Price in Sweden is approx 250-300usd

  • Bassdirect.co.uk now has prices, and are taking preorders - states coming in beginning of February.

Free quote for new income protection not combined insurance hospital plans but... — Yamaha Past Masters Racing Forum

Free quote for new income protection, not combined insurance hospital plans, but a full blown weekly wage from day one for as long as needed even to retirement. I have offered this and covered a number of you already, but been unable to see or speak to all, so hope you don't mind me posting this offer, but as an ex racer, of tzr's in the early 90's and well as other forms, and a sales manager for combined insurance for 8 years, I understand the need and benefit of good cover, combined has its limitations and is mainly a hospital plan, and not a full blown income protection to cover you 24/7 worldwide and to protect you and your family's income loss, this is! Free to just call or ask for a quote and full run down, now is the time to discuss as takes a couple of months to set up due to covering illness as well as accident. It's not a sales pitch, it's the only real offer from someone who has been there and done it, and needed it.

Regards

And please have a very very happy new year

  • Quote me happy - 43 (never too late to have fun!) - non smoker - home owner...??

  • Blimey; an insurance company that is happy to pay out? Whatever next? You'll tell me that one day, Tories and Lib Dems would work together. Oh; I may have missed that one. As Paul J-B-G pointed out, if compromise can be made, everyone wins.

  • Simon, I messaged you last week via fb. Did you see it as waiting for a reply. Ta
