  • Ok Pete.W you just wanted a change!! Well, i have bin driving bikes for38-39 years, and i had several difrent bikes starting with Triumph Tunderbird 650 1953!! And i always had Twins or V-Twins, and some of them big, but the bike i was most happy about was my XS650!! The first i had from new in -79, and the one i have now is my second and from -78. I have renovated the engine in this winter, and almost every thing in the engine is new. Now i´m wayting for the last parts so i can get finnish and be ready for springtime (THAT´S NOW!!!!) AND GET ON THE ROAD!!!! Good luck with your old "Ironhead" Sportster 1000c i stick to my XS650 YAMAHA FROM -78. stay cool and be happy Pete.

  • Mine was a 78 too! I re-built the top end with rebore new pistons, cam chain, tensioner, valves. Great engine to work on.

The best my scooter runs straight and level is 43mph or so...The thinking with installing aftermarket variator kits is to get a scooter at speed going up and down hill, from point a to point z and keep it there, by keeping it away from the limiter, so it gains a lot of speed going off of hills, and retaining this speed going into the next straight & level stretch of road + into the next hill. If I can cut my travel time from point A to point Z in this fashion, it's $$$ and time well spent...I'm gaining on it! :)

Yesterday afternoon, I reinstalled the stock drive belt on the Malossi variator in my older C3 Scooter & rode 30miles...Going down several half mile 7% grades on my favorite backroad, I was able to hit the limiter at 9,270rpms...Likely approaching 50mph. So, the stock belt backs engine speed off about 200rpms on top end. When it stops raining tomorrow, I'm going to see if I can get the engine away from the limiter, by inserting one 1/32" Dr.Pulley shim at a time behind the variator, and test riding my scoot...I'll also have my gps installed.:) Gabe

Hi ya all! I just bought myself a Garmin Zumo 660 nav system at the annual Utrecht Motorbeurs this weekend and I thought it couldn't be the world's most difficult thing to mount it on my bike myself.

But... Somehow the legs of the U-ring (if that's what it's called) that comes with it seem a little short for my steering bar (or my steering bar is to thick for the U-ring ;-) ). Anyway, I was hoping there would be some of you out there who have experience with mounting the Zumo 660 on a (2006) Bulldog and who have overcome this same challenge.

Thanx in advance! Hugo

  • I've send a picture of my handlebar to waypoint in Moordrecht.

    When i came to pick uo mij ram mount knob they gave me another U bolt which fits perfectly

  • James, the xxST2 indeed can only rotate around the handle bar. That is exactly why I didn't choose the xxST2. With the xxST1, apart from rotating the mount, you can also adjust the angle of your nav. That way you can position it in the best way for yourself. Since the flat bits of the parts that go around the handle bar are slightly flattened (so if you'd join them together they wouldn't make a perfect circle) there's more than enough grip for the mount to stay in position... My Zumo is way from being heavy enough to make it slide the least bit. I guess I'm pretty enthousiastic about it, from my (short) experience with this mount. By the way, mine is black!

  • Nice!

I rode my new (Old) C3 Scooter 30 miles yesterday morning in bright sunshine + 65deg weather, putting more break-in miles on the new Malossi Overange variator. It just touches the limiter going down bigger hills vs stuttering when it kicks in like my older scooter...Likely caused by the stock 120/90-10 rubber it has on it...My older scoot has the taller 130 tires. It's raining this am...Looks like it will last for several days. It'll be a good time to reinstall a stock drive belt on the older scoot, & see if I can get a ride in between the showers + see what happens! :)

  • If this doesn't work, I'll try putting 1/32" shims behind the variator one at a time until it comes off of big hills + stays away from that limitrt. I really don't want to put anymore weight in the variator, will go to a set of 6.5gr weights as a last resort...

  • Looks like your rear fender's long gone like mine...It fits perfectly on back.

  • Rear fender is attached to the engine... this engine has a small fender that you cannot see.

  • Mine was cut back like that too. Whenever I lost the K+N airfilter, & the Juicebox fuel controller, & went back with an all stock airbox, I noticed how raggedy what was left of it was + removed it.:)

My original C3 Scooter is for sale. It has just turned 13,000 miles...I bought it new on 5apr'08 at Ward's Yamaha- Troy,Al...Their Shop has performed the bulk of it's maintenance,for which, I have all of the records. It has just had the 12,000mi service performed (Valve Clearance checked.) Features:

1) 130/90-10 Bridgestone tires installed front and rear...(No rear fender!) Which corrected the speedo so that it stays with my gps up to 40mph indicated.

2) Front forks were rebuilt with all new parts and over filled a bit with 20wt fluid & 3) I recently installed a new Nitrogen/Oil rear shock absorber (The one on EBAY) Together, along with the 130 Bridgestone tires, it rides like a much larger vehicle than it is, over rough roads, manhole covers, & R/R tracks...

4) Yamaha C3 Scooter Windshield...Mounts solidly to the mirror brackets.

5) Yamaha C3 Rear Carrier...

6) I recently installed a completey new stock intake system. (Airbox, crankcase vent hose,new air filter element...)

7) Jiangwayne stainless steel exhaust with the lower header pipe which keeps the engine's exhaust from frying the side cover...

8)Yamaha Blue side covers...(I'm installing the custom painted covers with the flags on my newer scooter.)

9) I just completed the installation of a Malossi Multivar, Complete Performance Variator...(Both Primary & Secondary Sheaves...) The jury's still out on how this will work...I expect it to work quite well! The reason for selling it is, I just acquired a new C3 scooter with only 600mi on it, & I'm about to get an '80 model Kawasaki KZ 250 ltd, with only 3,500mi on it. Then, there's my Ural Motorcycle... I'm running out of clean, dry places to put them! Gabe

  • thats the link bruse for the thread . 101 pages of it. LOL. Don't get me wrong ural ok but it was the 35mpg that turn me off. I ve read some people of trasplanted more modern bwm engines into the frame .

  • I regularly use my Ural-T as a 31 mpg truck (If someone says he's getting 35, he should be President and have his nose grooowwww! :)

  • I can put a whole basket of groceries in the sidecar & boot at Walmart and have my bike not even know it, + draw a crowd of people watching me load up...:) My old pickup gets 17mpg on a good day!

Has anyone tried active pickups on their attitude — YAMAHA Attitude Ltd

Has anyone tried active pickups on their attitude?

8 comments
  • Active electronics and pickups aren't that bad. My Warwick Thumbs has just as much snarl and growl, if not more, than my Attitude. Not to mention more mids - they don't always have exaggerated lows and highs, that's just how you set the eq.

    That said, part of the magic of the Attitude is its back to basics naked passive circuitry and tone. As handy as on the fly eq changes might be, if you're using it in 'stereo' mode pseudo bi-amp setup, I don't think having on board electronics will help matters. Although being able to roll the low end off the P pickup would be handy!

  • I think the Attitude is what it is because of the set of pickups it has and the 2 amp configuration.

    I don't think active pickups would work with two amps, I don't see what you would gain. I happen to be changing pickups in my slap bass and I'll put a jazz and a musicman both active, but no dual output. just don't see the point.

  • The guitar player were talking about how great they are, but i was not sure. Now i know better. Maybe i will try on my standard or another bass. Thanks

antes de cmprar un rgv250 cmprarian un nsr 150 — Yamaha VR-R 150 2T

antes de cmprar un rgv250 cmprarian un nsr 150¿

10 comments
  • por eo digo nsr 150

  • Son 2 motos distintas. un rgv250 tenes otra posición de manejo mucho mas pista que el vrr por lo cual ya no vas a doblar como con un vrr que si te tiras un poquito dobla por ser una moto liviana, vas a tener q empezar a jugar con contramanillar frenos pedalines posición del cuerpo etc y es cuestión de pasar tanques y tanques practicando para no cagarte un palo haciéndose el valentino.

    El nsr150 es la opción "mas picante que el vrr" (es hermosa aparte) esta echa para iniciarse para desp poder domar motos mas grandes..

    *precio

    *gastos mensuales en combustible y posibles reparaciones

    *uso que le vas a dar.

    Fijate cada pro y cada contra de cada moto..

    Yo iría por el nsr.

    Mas barata en todo sentido, mantenimiento repuestos (cubiertas mecanica) consumo, precio de compra

    Es mas Moto que el Vr-R subís varios escalones (** también roba mas miradas, a quien no le gusta que le elogien la moto no?)

    Potencia/peso/posición de manejo justo para aprender a manejar y no terminar en forma de puré con huesos. (aunque tranquilamente podes ir a 60 o a 170 km/h y hacerte verga igual) Ojo el vrr también se presta y mucho para aprender.

    La ninja 250 es otra opcion.

  • o el RGT2 150

  • was quality with 6 point welding :-)

  • Tom, I have started wondering: Did I understand correctly that you have replaced the original Bulldog battery with this one? You did not connect the two together, or did you? (call me stupid, but I'm not too good with electrics)

  • yes i replace the original Battery with this one and start up is soooo great with this one......(you can have Light´s on and is no Problem)

    But you need a charger for Model (so for a LiFePo Batterie) and the smal Wire what you can see with the conector is for Balancing the Batterie Cell´s ;-)

    Tom Lisa Charger is only 4 Balancing and when the Battery is emty .......charging from Bulldog alternator works :-)
