Currently in need of some sleeves/spindles/bushes for my later rear suspension linkage as the parts that are worn are no longer available from Yamaha. These are: 2off 18mm OD x 10mm ID x 70.8mm long & need to be hardened to run in needle roller bearings and 1off 20mm OD x 10mm ID x 25.8mm long and this one runs in a plain bush. Local engineering firms not interested, unless, of course, I can find one that has a racing outlook on things :)

  • actualy thinking about it I think the linkage is the stock TDR one so scrap that

  • the bushes from the old style linkage are exactly the same -you can transfer them over if you have an old one - or source a second hand early style one for the bushes. The ones in the photo dont look too bad ? They dont need to be perfect -they only swivel a fraction when in use - as long as the linkage swivels when assembled it will be ok. New seals and bearings from Yambits may do the trick.

  • Yes, I can use the old ones for now, the spherical bearing is on order as it is very worn, just want to do a thorough job

For those of you with wire wheels, any idea on the tube size needed? I have been to several web pages that have the tires I need in stock, but mention nothing about the tubes. And when I do, there are over 50 to choose from. The tires were manufactured in mid '03 (and showing small cracks on the walls) and I am presuming that the tubes have never been replaced. I want to get these replaced ASAP so I can ride without a worry in the world. 130/90-16 on the front, 180/70-15 for the back. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!

Whelp, my first ride of the season was eventful. I got a mile up the road and got pulled over by a state trooper. He said Maryland changed the law Oct '12 to require a permit, insurance, title of ownership, helmet and eye protection. He could have arrested me and suspended my license. I asked..why didn't they notify all scooter owners by mail? I got a $110 fine instead. Still sucks. I see no benefit to owning a 50cc scooter anymore.

  • I read all forms of news, I visited the MVA twice. they have my email and home address, absolutely 0 communication. I would like the judge to explain how I am expected to know they changed the law.

  • "ignorance of the law..." (although I think that old addage is bs in this case... at least issue warnings only on first infractions...)

  • I did more research and I have no case. I just mailed the damn check..

  • Tempted to bid for it myself. It might not be an LTD, but a little modding could get it to respectful backup bass standards.

  • I have a special... very nice bass.. the neck is more like a traditional P bass neck and not as big as a Ltd.

Deus reconheceu Arthur e disse-lhe:

- Então inventaste a Harley-Davidson?

Arthur respondeu: - É verdade, fui eu ..

Deus comentou: Não foi uma boa invenção...

É um veículo instável, barulhento e poluidor. Manutenção complicada, alto consumo...

Arthur ficou aborrecido com o comentário e retrucou:

- Desculpe, não foi o senhor que inventou a mulher?

- Sim, fui eu! - Responde Deus.

- Bem, aqui entre nós, de profissional para profissional, você também não foi nada feliz na sua invenção!

- Há muita inconsistência na suspensão dianteira;

- É muito barulhenta e tagarela em altas velocidades;

- Na maioria dos casos, a suspensão traseira é muito macia e vibra demais;

- A área de lazer está localizada perto demais da área de reciclagem;

- Os custos de manutenção são exorbitantes.

Deus refletiu e respondeu:

OK ... I am proud to say my big 1900cc Roadliner won the Gold Coast Cruiser Club's "Classic Cruiser" 1st place 2012. I would have this over a Victory (and any of the other Japanese branded cruisers ANY DAY ... with respect). A small amount of tweaking and you have yourself the ride of your life. After all, as far as I know this is the BIGGEST capacity AIR-cooled twin ever put in a production motorcycle. Again, mods to many to mention, but importantly: Patriick Racing air intake (discretely hidden under the tank, Power Commander III with outstanding dyno-tune, and full Vance & Hines system (one of the photos shows me carefully installing it myself. Styling wise, the bike is deliberately Art Deco. The lovely Two-Tone colour scheme does not seem to be done now in the current range ... a real shame.

  • It's at the POst Office...Picking it up today...The modded Malossi Clutch Sheave will be mailed from Ca this am...I ought to be riding my scooter with my gps on the bars by Thursday...:)

  • It's sitting on the desk...:) As soon as the machined Torque Driver gets here, we'll find out how it all works out!

Bruce Gabriel shared a link to the group: Yamaha C3 . — Yamaha C3

A Bro at has the same Malossi Secondary Sheave that I do...He found that his rear pulley wasn't opening all of the way, due to the Torque Driver being slightly too long.(Causing his C3 to hit the Limiter early, and only run 41mph...) He had a buddy of his remove 2.2mm from the end of his T.D. with his lathe, which fixed the problem, causing the pulley to open completely, & added 6mph to his top speed...Having the same issues with both of my scooters, I sent both of my units to him & had his friend shorten them too...And, My 9,500 RPM ECU is about to be shipped from Taiwan. Between the two of these mods 50mph straight and level may become a reality in a week or so...:) Gabe

  • Or with research they lowered the RPM due to problems The flip side of the coin ;)

  • If that was the case, the higher rev ECU wouldn't be available at any cost...I think they shelved it + didn't use it on the C3 Scooter for the same reasons they didn't put the front disc brake on it, when they were using it on their Zuma 50cc 2T Scooter... (Likely assembled in the same factory.) They had most of their $$$ tied up in the XF50's High Tech Engine...:) I expect that there are some MBK BoosterX Scooters out there with free flowing intakes & Exhausts, running the Pollini Performance 3.18:1 "Performance" gears and C3 Scooter Primary Sheaves that will, walk off from a modded 55mph Ruckus 50cc scooter like it's standing still! LOL!

  • I've still got my K&N 4" air filter & intake tracts if I cannot get the mixture right by modding the stock air box...And, my Jiangwayne exhaust is still on the older scooter...This will be fun! :)

Is the single header spring typical of Swarbricks though as my other Nikons have 2 springs. I need one header insert/flange for this set.

Just been in the studio with my Yamaha Attitude II and just heard there was a new Daft Punk album out, (featuring Nathan East no less!) Very excited! Anyway, I was recording some funky almost chic-esque lines and realised one of the reasons I LOVE the Attitude, is that it's got (at least with both pickups on, neck backed off just enough to let the middle Pup and highs smack through, and with well played in strings (considering changing them, that level haha!)) a very Musicman Stingray -ish thump and punch along with the signtaure growl of the Attitude, very cool combo and it was sounding awesome! :D

Hello everyone. I have bought 2 motorcycles which were imported from The Philippines. They Are both Yamaha Viragos 700 ccm. In the Philippines they were registrered as 1984 and 1998 modell, but they Are both 1984 mod. Is there anybody in here who have imported bikes from The Philippines? It seems as if a bike has a fabricationyear, that doesn't mean that when it comes to The Philippines. Then The certificate of registration Will show another year Than The original productionyear. It shows The year which it was imported to The Philippines and Get a new registration from that year. Anyone else in here that can confirm this? I Found a website were you can decode and confirm The vinnumber on The motorcycleframe. You can use to search if The vinnumber has an identification with your frame, they use it to see if The bike is stolen or has Been messed with in any way. Sorry if this is old news to you, but i'm new to this hobby and have had problems with documentation with original papers, because i bought it without them. I only have copies on my e-mail. This can be a problem in registering here in Norway. But things Are not only how it seems. As in this case were The original productionyear is not mentioned in The certificate of registration from The Philippines. The website is: In here you can check any make for The vehicleidentificationnumber on VIN decoders if you use another make in The name, you just replace Yamaha and writes another name in it. I hope this can be helpful to other, in this or another way

Anyone seen this happen to them? I'm looking for ideas as to why it happened and what caused it.

The engine didn't seize, it felt like the fuel went onto reserve!

  • Oops, just saw your post below too. It may still be worth checking - the right seal is generally replaced when the crank is apart because it's behind the primary gear. It may be your crank builder didn't supply a new left seal because they just slide on. Or he's used pattern, and it doesn't fit. I'd replace it with genuine just to be sure when you put it back together.

  • Had one like that have you got rite cdi pack

  • Well after further inspection we have found he cause!!!!! Head gasket blow....

  • I reckon that's a headgasket problem. The piston crown shows none of the alloy flaking you get with a really lean mixture, it's on a stock airbox with Martin Johnson pipes :-), which from my exp run on standard jetting which the bike has, it's got very hot on the exhaust side so that should rule out any lubrication issues.

    Looking at the pattern of the detonation it looks like the head has been leaking from the front and the resulting lean burn has eaten the piston. Had a similar issue with our spare motor, because Doug is used to how the bike should feel he pulled it in before any major damage was done. The gasket can leak at the front without pressurizing the coolant so unless you know how the bike normally feels you wouldn't really know. It's been building up for a fair amount of time by the looks of it.

    The only other possibility is the squish is not central and the piston has been hitting the head, broken the seal of the gasket at the front and the combination has mullerd the piston. :-(

    Unlucky mate, but from what Steve told me it doesn't sound like it's terminal

  • I've never experienced that to be honest Simon, but as always diagnosis is only ever a guessing game unless there is something blindly obvious! I think you would hear it popping from the exhaust if it was leaking enough to cause that damage? The pipes don't rev as hard as Jollies, more like a standard pipe, could a pipe leak do that? I really don't know to be honest

  • I would look at the other pot. If its in similar state then ignition and general carb set up are first concerns. As is an air leak at pipe joining reed valves. My opinion std jetting is too small when using premix. Std jets just "sounds" a bit risky to me.

    If other pot is good then its likley air leaks/ blocked carbs to look at. The piston looks black, suggests the engine ran after the damage was done. did you run or start it after damage occured??

    If no issues found it could simply be combination of jetting to lean. Compression to high(get head measured). Conditions and track. (were long straights involved?)

    Also could be fuel starvation on wot. Check lines and make sure the stupid little filters in the carbs are removed and binned!!

    When rebuilt do a leak down test. Could save you a heap of money....

  • @darko what do you mean with slight bump ?? Sorry my ignorance

  • que no entraba realmente bien, y el pickguard estaba un poquito forzado, un bulto tenia.

  • ah okok thanks darko

so the 07 has a safety recall on the connecting rod as well as the fuel pump — Yamaha C3

so the '07 has a safety recall on the connecting rod, as well as the fuel pump. just figured I'd pass that along...

  • I'm retired from three million miles in a big truck Erik...My sugar got out of whack & I had to quit. I went from running 150,000 miles a year, to walking our dogs...:) Nearly drove my Lady nuts! So, for my Birthday in the spring of '08, she found a leftover '07 C3 Scooter that my Yamaha Dealer couldn't sell, at a price she couldn't pass on & likely kept me out of a rubber room! I started trying to make it better in every way I could think of...And, I Still am! It's what I do to keep me back from "The Ledge!" :) Early on, I had people all over scooterdom laughing at me, "You're going to make that Fugly thing have better performance, & look better?" "No Way!" The only two people that went out of their way to find XF50 performance parts were Joel Martin at MRP & Mr.Jiangwayne likely at considerable risk $-wise! "It's Ugly, most of the forums screamed!" :) But, here we are 6 years later...Some of those that laughed aren't even around now! I decided that as hard of a time as I had learning how to make a C3 Scooter look good, and perform well, that I'd never refuse to help anyone that asked for it...:) Gabe

  • yes they are fixing it on Yamaha's dime. pretty reputable power sports dealer in my area. I trust them.

  • LOL! Then, you probably need an appointment, like at your Dr...Always a good sign of class people & work...:)

The handle bars needed to be set back to fit me just right, we found that the Honda risers were cheaper and fit perfect. At 5'3", 130 lbs, this is the best bike ever for me to handle and feel comfortable; I ride by myself at times, able to ride to the beach and back ; but to Florida and back, I am a back seat rider. Love to ride it to work, the comments fly..... "She's a biker girl!!" Oh, they just don't know anything about riding a motorcycle. Guess I should respond with "They are just city people and have no adventure in their soul."


hi everyone. just bought a used 07 C3. far as I can tell it s all stock — Yamaha C3

hi everyone. just bought a used '07 C3. far as I can tell it's all stock. does this thing have enough juice to carry both my wife and me? I guess I'd have to add pegs or do something to make the seat better? is it even safe to sit 2 people on it?

  • so basically, possible suspension issues will be more of a concern than any possible engine issues?

  • The engine is nearly bullet proof given regular maintenance...

  • The '07 model had issues with the Connecting Rod/Crankshaft assy, some of which were improperly heat treated on early models, + it's fuel puimp whose issues have been an ongoing thing as well, with some '07-'10 models having the same hard starting, suddenly stopping + refusing to restart, and not starting at all if left out in the sun on a hot day each summer. Call Yamaha @ 800-962-7926 with your vin# handy to find out if the recalls apply to your scooter and if so, if they've been done...

I may have located a XF50 Scooter ECU that cuts the ignition at 9 500rpms — Yamaha C3

I may have located a XF50 Scooter ECU, that cuts the ignition at 9,500rpms...:) More as soon as I know for sure...Gabe

  • That was the ECU that they misadvertised as having "Unlimited RPMS..." KSPower put it on the scooter they were modding and reported that it added 250-300rpms with a slightly enriched mixture...This is the Unit I've got on the way...With my setup all I need is 300rpms & I'll be able to tune my air intakle for the slightly richer mixture...I'm beginning to think that a consistant 50mph straight & level may indeed be possible... We'll find out! :) Gabe

  • By the way...The C3 Scooter KS Power was modding in 2008, they later developed a kit to install a GY6 engine in...And it's now owned by our Bro, Duc Huynh! :) /here-s-my-new-c3-with-a-swapp ed-gy6-t82.html

  • My Chinese GY6 clone lasted 4000 miles, I hope he has better luck!!

Ok another question Has anyone ever removed their stock turn signal lightbar — YAMAHA PICS MODIFICATIONS

Ok another question, Has anyone ever removed their stock turn signal lightbar (2004 vstar 650) and incorperated mini turn signals into headlight bezel - like this?

  • I did this with one of my Honda CB projects. It look very cool, but cut your wires down otherwise it gets very crowded in the headlight bucket.

  • I did this on one of my early projects, before I started to remove the turn signals completely on later projects. Used a stainless steel hollow rod that I tapped on both ends, drilled a hole in the center for the wires and welded a couple of brackets on it for mounting to the frame. .php?fbid=47234665307&set=a.47 234620307.69050.539225307&type =3&theater

  • that's awesome Per-Erik Kristiansen!

  • Ok now I understand, is canvas webbing of glass wool, as on the harley ....

  • nice exhaust, looks like an buell x1 exhaust. good idea :-) the sound is okay?

  • Your bike looks like a bad ass. Good thing. Brings the exhaust a more of power or he looks just fine. The rear is pretty narrow.

What a day. Worked on the bike all day. Started with relocating the turn signals to the license plate bracket. Not too fond of the look, but I must say, I did a good job of making everything look clean. Then installed the saddle bags (more light fought with the saddle bags). Got them hung and lined up. Put the seat back on. Admired how sweet it all looked. Found a new spot to put the helmet lock, just need a longer bolt (hardware store trip one day this week). Lastly took the headlight and front signals off to put the new light bar one. Sadly, the Yamaha shop sold me the wrong bar. It does not fit at all. Now I have to take all the hardware back off the passing lamps, call the shop, and hopefully make a trip (way out of my way) to get the right one. And for as nice as it is out, I was hoping to go for at least a little ride. Oh well, guess I will have to wait.

I picked up an awesome jacket. I hate wearing leather in the heat of the summer but I am dead set on protection. I tried one of the Joe Rocket style jackets and while they function well they look ridiculous on a chubby guy on a cruiser. Found this armored hoodie at Cycle Gear and tried it out. Has some text and graphics on it I read some folks didn't like but at least it doesn't look laughable on me. Has CE armor elbow and shoulder pads plus an inner liner. Just wore it for the first time and in 70 degrees I was actually almost chilly. Wind goes through it well. This is going to be a win!! Thumbs up for this product!! (and no, I don't work for Cycle Gear or Street N' Steel LOL)
