  • lol! Never had mine move either. I did something like that with a match book cover to hold an a/c vent in my car from swinging around! If it works, why not?!

  • How far are each string from the pickups¿ could be 2 or 3 milimiter

  • also you can fret the highest note on the bass and use those shims to make sure that the pickup is parallell to the strings thus getting the most of the ramp effect

  • I like my neck close to poker straight as possible. I like my action low but not as low as in this photo. I do need some bounce back action from the strings. I do all my own setups and spent years perfecting it and feel to each his own. I am friends with Willis and have played his bass as well as several of Sheehan’s basses. The setups between my bass, Sheehan’s bass and Willis’s bass were all different but they all work for each of us. Bottom line is do what works for you. I can play you a ton of my session recordings and you will hear no buzzing on my bass in any recordings. Im a natzi about things like that. Some people like a lot of neck relief and others dislike it. Again to each his own. Good Luck :)

  • how about a video of this bass in action, that would be cool.

  • Plugs replaced two wks ago, tomorrow the oil & filters get changed

  • I lubed, changed oil, filters, plugs today. One oil filter was stuck real bad. After several attempts with 2 different oil filter wrenches I had to resort to "screwdriver hammered through filter to make handle" method :). Hopefully your filters come off easier than mine!

Memorial Day ride to Natural Tunnel State Park in VA for the wife and I on my 07 V-Star 1100 Custom. Beautiful weather and a nice place to visit. Water erosion from a creek actually created a natural tunnel large enough to run train tracks through. The natural part is the darker looking photo. The smaller tunnel in the background of the photo of my wife and I was man made. They have a nice campground, swimming pool, cabin rentals (very modern and nice similar to what you would rent in Gatlinburg or ski slope areas) and a chair lift you can ride to the bottom where the tunnel is. Highly recommend.

    Biker down — Yamaha V-Star riders

    Biker down.

    An off-duty McKinney police officer died in a crash in Frisco on Monday morning.

    Officer John Libby was killed when his motorcycle hit a sport utility vehicle just before noon at the corner of Custer Road and Cotton Ridge Road South.

    According to police, the driver of the 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee pulled out in front of Libby's cycle.

    Investigators said there was no suspicion of drug or alcohol use and that no charges have been filed.

    John Libby had been with the McKinney Police Department since 2007.

    "John's commitment to his family, community and fellow officers will be deeply missed," McKinney police spokesman Sgt. Chad Barker said in a written statement.

      • Will think that is because of the lack of salt water use and the shorter season?

      • Looks like a very nice boat. And that is a great price. A bit low in my opinion. They are selling in the mid 20s for that year here in GA.

      A little off topic but fitting for the day here in the USA (and his son has a V Star). My dad has this limo as a "Moving Memorial". It has the names of the 52 combat related fallen from the State of Maine (so far) since 9/11. He does this out of his own pocket as a retired Army soldier (1973) and 100% disabled vet with 2 tours in Vietnam. This was in the town parade today in Richmond, Maine. My mothers last ride in the Memorial Day parade was last year and she passed away 2 days later (from lung cancer), 1 day after their 56th anniversary. Was a little more somber and tougher on my dad this year....

        • It gets used more than the other two wrenches...

        • Especially, since it was recently calibrated...You cannot imagine what a hassle it was to get that accomplished! :)

        • But...You can break something if it isn't done every couple of years or so...Especially if you're working on aircraft.

        Top 10 Reasons Sport bikers Don’t Wave At All.

        10. They have not been riding long enough to know they’re supposed to.

        9. They’re going too fast to have time enough to register the movement and respond.

        8. You weren’t wearing bright enough gear.

        7. If they stick their arm out going that fast they’ll rip it out of the socket.

        6. They’re too occupied with trying to get rid of their chicken strips.

        5. They look way too cool with both hands on the bars or they don’t want to unbalance themselves while standing on the tank.

        4. Their skin tight-Kevlar-ballistic-nylon-kangaroo-leather suits prevent any position other than fetal.

        3. Raising an arm allows bugs into the armholes of their tank tops.

        2. It’s too hard to do one-handed stoppies.

        1. They were too busy slipping their flip-flop back on.

        Top Ten Reasons Why BMW Riders Don’t Wave Back.

        10. New Aerostich suit too stiff to raise arm.

        9. Removing a hand from the bars is considered “bad form.”

        8. Your bike isn’t weird enough looking to justify acknowledgment.

        7. Too sore from an 800-mile day on a stock “comfort” seat.

        6. Too busy programming the GPS, monitoring radar, listening to ipod, XM, or talking on the cell phone. 5. He’s an Iron Butt rider and you’re not!

        4. Wires from Gerbings is too short.

        3. You’re not riding the “right kind” of BMW.

        2. You haven’t been properly introduced.

        1. Afraid it will be misinterpreted as a friendly gesture

          • You might try wd 40 sprayed in to top end instead or in through the carb manifolds (personallly I wouldn't go mad with this though.)

          • Ok I will give it a try tomorrow. What about the carb boots? They are looking a little weather checked. Maybe getting to much air? Again carbs are not my thing. No problem with anything else though.

          • If your carb boots are cracked your might get a weak mixture or unbalanced mixture in each cyclinder but in my experience if you have good petrol getting through, a spark (occuring at roughly the right time) and compression it will run (or you'll hear it trying, or it will kick back. It may not run very well but you should get some life out of it. Things like air leaks, bad timing etc.. can be sorted out later. On occasions there will be multiple problems e.g. weak or rich mixture, poor spark, poor compression which will combine to stop it starting but you did say it was running OK last summer. Let us know if you get it going. And the fault if you find one. :-)

But thanks David, Is just every thing about bikes and cars that shit in Denmark, els it´s a little nice and beautiful country with friendly people and super roads!! And no place in Denmark you have more than 50km down to the ocean (ca.31miles). In the little town where i live, i have water on 2 sides, and only 1/4 mile to the water!!!! In juni i am going to an XS650 club-meet, and maybe there will come 2oo-250 XS650 in that weekend! But next year is our plan to go to England, maybe 3 or 4 XS650!! And if we are going, we maybe can visit some of you?? But for now you stay cool David, get on wheels and enjoy the summer.

          • Steen what happens if nsomeone from another country rides into Denmark on a modified bike xs or other do the police bother them

          • No not if you´re from another country, then there is no problems with custom, chopper, bobber etc etc. So stay cool my friend, you can easy drive into little Denmark on a modified bike!

            A quick question regarding the clutch — Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog

            A quick question regarding the clutch.

            I was on a training day with my bike and during the slow session where there's lots driving on the clutch my neutral gear disappeared. It just kept jumping over neutral, and a moment later the clutch fully depressed started grabbing in first gear.

            I let the bike cool for an hour and everything was fine again. Later that day the same happened again.

            The clutch adjustment is fully "out" and the cable has been recently changed to a new one.

            Could it be the oil or is the clutch needing replacing? I might try to get the cable tighter with a washer or something. It grabs just fine..

            Is there any Lane splitting etiquette, I normally Lane split at a speed I am comfortable with and don't usually look at the speed as I'm concentrating on what's going on ahead and checking my mirrors for cops, tonight on the way home from work I came across a guy doing 15-20k, seemed like much slower than I normally go, he seemed a little wobbly so i Gave him space many times he had a chance to pull into a spot and let me pass but didn't (I did that a couple of times when I started Lane splitting) is there any sort of etiquette on this or just common courtesy?

            For the record once I got past and up to speed I looked at my speedo and realized I was doing 35 on a freeway where the traffic was doing about 5 or less, too fast?

            • Yes the legislation regarding filtering in Melbourne seems designed to make it as difficult as possible to follow in real life.

              Sounds like That guy you saw was a bit in over his head.

            • As long as the traffic is very slow and you are passing slowly then no one would bother, however some do it while the traffic is sitting around 50k and they are passing going much faster, that is deemed dangerous and they would get nailed for it and made an example of, it is all common sence, just go by your own instincts and if what you are doing is safe do do then go for it,.... any doubts then dont do it

                • ok, i was just putting that out there, i figured maybe the cam was slightly or drastically turned and it was either on a exhaust or intake stroke, causing it to get hung up. but if you put it to tdc when you disassembled it off the bottom end then you have a different issue to figure out, best of luck

                • My idea wont crack head case aslong as the peice goes past the hole both sides. Also if its on tdc should pull out

                  Just curious how many players here try to use Billy's bass tone, in a working band environment, rather than going for a sound that is your own. I see alot of videos of people copying Sheehan's sound in bedroom environment, which is kinda cool. I was just curious how many are trying to have Billy's tone at their own gigs ??? ...and the reason for doing so ?? :)

                  • also Billy himself ...was never a copy - in my humble, youngster opinion:) - is also a musician, like what Jon wrote down..... i see him as a person, who had put together his influences, and created his own sound and world...and great stuff he sings about on his solo albums too:) i respect him for that. & also respect the human being. he teached me more about music through his music than some teachers in school....

                  • Billy is not just a musician, he's also some kind of spiritual-musical guru. Playing music it's a lot more than just plucking strings

                  • Probably because he often has to order stuff from Malossi's factory in Italy, where they're known for only being in a hurry on two & four wheels...:)

                  • If you simply have your shop remove the washer when they service your scoot, the Warranty won't be invalidated...

                  • It worked on this end! :)

                  • Looks a fine size, but i really want a big box which is lockable as it will be staying on the bike, I wouldnt be too keen leaving a bag on the back of the bike where I will be working ;)

                  • This is no good for security, there are 2 straps on the back that just click together and hold the bag to the rack, in under 10 seconds the bag can be undone and gone.

                  • Ah thats what I was thinking,, will be parked at the prison most of the time lol



                  Di atas padang pasir yang tandus seorang perempuan berusia nenek-nenek tampak sedang berjalan sendirian. Beban berat tergambar jelas di pundaknya. Sengatan matahari gurun dan barang bawaan yang ia pikul cukup membuat lutut rentanya lemas kepayahan.

                  Namun, kondisi ini tak berlangsung lama. Pucuk dicinta ulam tiba. Seorang pria muda baik hati segera menghampiri dan menawarkan bantuan. Perempuan tua itu pun menyambut tawaran dengan perasaan senang.

                  Sepanjang perjalanan pria itu dihujani ceramah. Si nenek rupanya sangat gemar berbicara. Si nenek berbicara tentang penolakkanya terhadap dakwah Rasulullah. Dia mewanti-wanti siapapun untuk tidak mengikuti jalannya, bahkan membahasnya sekalipun.

                  ”Jadi sekali lagi, jangan berbicara apapun soal Muhammad!” ujarnya.

                  Si anak muda hanya tersenyum diam tanpa menyela pembicaraan. Dengan setia, ia mendengarkan perempuan tua itu bertubi-tubi mencaci-maki Rasulullah. Menurut dia, Muhammad adalah pribadi yang amat menjengkelkan. Tidak pantas keturunan suku terhormat seperti Muhammad menyulut permusuhan.

                  Si nenek terus mengomel. Dia katakan, Muhammad sudah menyesatkan banyak orang, terutama orang-orang fakir dan kalangan budak. Kaum lemah ini diperdaya oleh ajaran-ajaran palsu yang seolah menjaminkan kebahagiaan.

                  ”Jadi anak muda, jangan sekali-kali berbicara soal Muhammad!”

                  Tanpa terasa tujuan perjalanan si nenek akhirnya sampai. Si nenek sekali lagi menampakkan rasa senang dan syukur atas bantuan pria muda itu. ”Biarkan saya memberi kamu satu nasihat. Jauhi Muhammad!” tambahnya.

                  Sebelum berpisah, si nenek menanyakan perihal nama laki-laki murah hati yang tulus menolongnya itu. ”Maaf, siapa namamu?”


                  ”Si apa?”


                  Si nenek terpaku sejenak hingga akhirnya memutuskan masuk Islam karena keluhuran dan budi pekerti pemuda bernama Muhammad Shollallohu alaihi wasallam.

                    Okey me & another FZ6r rider were talking about chicken strips.

                    So.. How about you folks scub those tires around some tight corners & show everyone how you like to ride..with some tire pics?

                    Mine are still new, so I'll have to wait till after the weekend before I put any pics up.

                    Who's in?

                    • To piggy back on a few comments, watch/read Twist again. Why get over so far, to impress people? Our streets aren't perfect. Also, slide a cheek off. Keith Code has a rider demonstrate going faster around a corner keeping the bike more upright with good body posture and more traction. Focus on technique and skill, not who has the smallest stripes.

                    • Reason why I'm curious is most of the riders here have tire wear indicative mostly of highway work.

                    • Yeah Matthew is spot on, develop a sound technique with your body positioning, approach to the corner & throttle control..and you should see improvement in the corners as your skill develops.

                    Sorry for this guys and gals, but its pretty funny. Just to be clear, I am not biased but I can laugh a bit. - Taken from and article on cycle fish :)

                    Every once in a while, somebody starts whining about Harley riders not waving back. Before those whiners dismiss all Harley riders as mean-spirited, they should consider that there are probably very good reasons why their waves are not being returned….

                    Top Ten Reasons Why Harley Riders Don’t Wave Back

                    1 – They’re afraid it will invalidate their factory warranty.

                    2 – Leather and studs make it too hard to raise their arm.

                    3 – They refuse to wave to anyone whose bike is already paid for.

                    4 – They won’t let go of handlebars because they might vibrate off.

                    5 – The rushing wind could blow the scabs off their new tattoos.

                    6 – They’re angry over the second mortgage needed to pay for the new Harley.

                    7 – They just discovered the fine print in their owner’s manual revealing that The Motor Company is partially owned by rice-burner manufacturers.

                    8 – They can’t tell if other riders are actually waving or just reaching up to cover their ears, like everyone else.

                    9 – If they wave back, they risk being impaled on their spiked helmet.

                    10 – They’re upset that after spending $30,000, they still don’t own a bike that’s as comfortable as a Goldwing.

                    To be totally fair, let it be noted that sometimes Goldwing riders don’t wave back, either. Again, to facilitate a better understanding….

                    Top Ten Reasons Why Goldwing Riders Don’t Wave Back

                    1 – They aren’t sure whether the other rider is waving or making an obscene gesture.

                    2 – They risk getting frostbite if they take their hand off the heated grip.

                    3 – They have arthritis and it is difficult to raise their arm.

                    4 – The reflection from the etched windshield was momentarily blinding.

                    5 – The on-board espresso machine had just finished.

                    6 – They were asleep when other rider waved.

                    7 – They were involved in a three-way conference call with their stock broker and accessories dealer.

                    8 – They were distracted by an oddly shaped blip on their radar screen.

                      Sorry to be a pest, but you all are fantastic and I enjoy chatting with you. One final question... My fiancée and I are expecting a baby boy near the end of July. That being said... She still wants to ride her own bike. The doctor said to live life as you usually would and that the actual riding will cause no harm to the little man but of course you have to watch out for the obvious... Taking a spill. Would anyone here agree or disagree? Do any of you think she should continue to ride? I'm on the fence. Of course I want her to do what she wants but I also have to worry about "what if..." Thanks guys. - Joe

                        Looking for opinions. NOT looking to start a feud or anything.

                        I've ridden a V-Star 1100 a few years ago but have never ridden a Raider. Is there a big difference in the riding positions between the bikes. I've been looking at the V-Star 1300s, the Raider and the Kawasaki Vaquero. The 1100 seemed to have a little bit of a buzz in the pegs and handgrips at highway speed. The wife and I both noticed it.

                        Has anyone had the chance to ride all of the bikes to get a comparison between them?

                        We are looking for something ride around town and short trips to start out with, say a couple hundred miles.

                          Question for all you guys, your coolant temp, what does it seem to run at normally? Friend has the same bike, (not the R only difference and few years older) and his runs at a much lower temp than mine. Seems mine runs what I think is high. I asked the previous owner she said it only ran that high on a long ride stuck in traffic on a hot day. Its nothing for my bike to quickly go up to 85-90 Celcius. When its just started idling it instantly climbs from Lo to 60 in a matter of minutes. It climbs 1 degree celcius every 5 seconds is what I watched it do tonight after an oil change, just idling in less than 5 degree celcius weather. Am I being paranoid? I never had a coolant temp indicator on my last bike so I'm probably being paranoid but like I said my friends runs much cooler. Ideas? Changed oil tonight. Coolant level is fine. What are your operating temp ranges for idling and for a decent ride? Fan cuts in around 100 Celcius it seems.

                          • Has any one here got one? If so does the Hump give you extra storage space under the seat, would consider getting one of its moulded to the height of the original with extra space under it.

                          • Brett James, the bottoms are identical. You will not achieve more storage with this option. It provides a sleek look as compared to our high humped passenger seat.

                          • Benno, I did some searching last night. It looks like they never painted one out of the manufacturer for the 2011 Orange Model. Majority of those that went with the orange bike did the black one as an accent. Your best bet if you are wanting to go the orange route is to purchase a black one and invest in the primer/paint/clearcoat package from here. . It isn't cheap but from experience they do a great job with the paint. Do it yourself or take it to a professional and you'll be good to go!

                          • Yup, i want to get the proper FZ6R one and a box,,, I was gonna get some steel and make one but havent got my welder yet,,,

                          • Ideally, you be wanting something that not only bolts under the tail & connects to the frame, also replaces the grab rail.

                            I am wise as I had a Ventura rack before I got the hepco&becker setup.

                            You really want a dedicated hard luggage mount, as soft luggage racks ain't designed to take that much weight..include a pillion hanging onto the rack for dear life around the twisties you'll get what I mean.

                          Okey, K&N airfilter replaced after 3750 miles with the airbox mod..

                          I was surprised to find the majority of gunk & dead insectoids was still at the top centre-ish of the filter..although little dead bug eyed beasties were over all sections of the filter.

                          Shortly before the filter change, the bikes low speed/low revs power delivery had dropped to about the same as before the mod. Now it is happy again.

                          Moderately frequent filter changes may have to become my norm....

                          • A few folks have partially cut down the snorkel & drilled the holes. I reckon it might be the way to go to spread the airflow across the filter.

                          • replaced or cleaned?

                          • I replaced it with a fresh one, although I will clean this one so I can rotate the filters as needed.

                            2 in hand is better than one.

                          Today a "friend" of mine who rides a Harley trike (cost him about 30K!) asked me when I will be getting a "real bike" instead of my '09 VStar 1300! He thinks I need the "Harley rumble" and apparently thinks I want the extra price tag. Ive had my Star for about a year and love it, so tried telling him I didn't want to spend over twice as much money to get less power, less engine dependability, and extra repair costs, aftermarket costs, etc. Told him I'll get a louder exhaust if I want more sound. He blew all that off, of course; just surprised that I didn't want to join "the Harley cult," as I call it. As if HD riders can't believe there could be a better brand out there ... Frustrating!!

                            Did some testing with vinyl stripes. A pain in the a** to apply and I'm not too happy with the result.. I'll give it a month or so as it might grow on me yet :)

                            • The thing that annoys me most is that I didn't get the stripes perfectly aligned. You just have to be really close to notice it. :) But yes, I might try some different layouts or att least give the front fender and rear hugger a go with only one wider stripe. Then there's the bellypan that I haven't installed yet.. So much to do, so little time :) Anyway, I have to test the quality and durability with some rain and sun before getting greedy. If someone wants to give it a go, here's the shop I bought the stripes from ->

                            • Christian, you may want to have a look at the photos (3) that I posted on 22nd April. My Bulldog has one wider stripes with two small ones running next to it. I haven't got my hugger and my front fender done, as I think it would be 'too much'. If you want more detailed photos, just let me know...

                            • Yours Hugo and Stefan Pickerts bikes gave me the idea of trying this out :) You maybe right about overdoing it.. The good thing, though, is that the stickers are quite easy to remove and with 2meters of the stuff there's plenty of "room" to play with it.

                              Street Monarch Extreme: Riding Like The Wind

                              Written by Dark Rebel / 2012

                              A prized beginning

                              It all started when Edsel Jordan, President of Vega Force Mantis Riders Club (VFMRC), won a color gold Sniper MX in a Yamaha raffle dated May 14, 2011. Along with three other members of VFMRC (Ryan Rieta, Pings Somigao and Al An) who also acquired Sniper MX motorcycles then, thought of starting an exclusive Sniper MX owners group.

                              It wasn’t a far-fetched dream. After its launching here in the country, there was a noticeable increase of Sniper MX motorcycles roaming the streets nationwide. Al An, one of the pioneers, then sat himself to work. He created a teaser in the Motorcycle Philippines website (MCP) regarding Sniper MX topics. However, it was through Facebook fan page ( and The Owners group page ( ) that the group started to increase its membership dramatically. It provided venue for wider-ranged discussions and interactions.

                              The page became an active information center for motorcycle enthusiasts both old and new alike. After less than six months, the first eyeball was set on September 17, 2011 at Yzone, Ortigas. By then, the group was still loose but common interest in SMX motorcycles, rides, and their fervent exchange of experiences and ideas bound the members together, actually organizing themselves voluntarily.

                              Since then, members have been actively coordinating with each other to ensure their representation in Yamaha activities as well as in other activities concerning motorist groups. They participated in MDPPA-Road Safety Advocacy Ride on September 29-30 2012 and MRO UNITY RIDE in Support of DOTC's 2W Relay for a CAUSE on November 18, 2012.

                              Seeing eye to eye

                              After the success of the first eyeball, members from different areas got inspired and started forming their local chapters. Among the first local groups to be formed were Eti_vac, MKRT, BRT followed by Kilabots and XXX. A group eyeball (GEB) was set on July 21, 2012 at Yzone with around 53 in attendance. A formal set of officers was elected last December 23, 2012 at Yzone, Ortigas for the SMX group named Street Monarch Extreme President Odie Perry, Vice President Edwin Jon Galvez Jr., Secretary Don Pulube, Treasurer Julius Palaganas, P.R.O. Blu Buluran and Board members Al An, Edselslim Jordan, Pings Somigao and Ryan Rieta were formally seated since then. Coordinators for each area were also appointed.

                                Oulton Park Instruction....................

                                So due to the two day meet and practice day restriction on this amazing circuit there will be no on track instruction available....HOWEVER dont be disappointed as we have a great track walk organised for the Thursday night at 6.30. I wont be there unfortunately as I'll be in the Pyrenees (natures Oulton Park!) but I have two main men leading the walk as well as a host of instructors in the crowd to get you some inside track knowledge for your test sessions Friday morning.

                                Messeurs Barry Chapman and Mark Lister will be waiting for your company on the start line (to walk to the first corner) at the allotted time. These chaps have a great deal of track experience at Oulton through their BSB and club campaigns so well worth a walk and a talk. Remember to get involved and ask questions. Its the way you get your lap times down.

                                Its becoming a great event in the Bemsee weekend and even if you use it as a social stroll and get to know some more Bemsee buddies on the way round then please come and join us. So here are the details so there is no confusion....

                                Date: Thursday 30th May

                                Time: 6.30pm

                                Place: On track on the START LINE

                                Have a really safe, fast and fantastic two days on the best circuit in the country (personal opinion of course!). The scariest thing will be being out there on track with Bazza if it gets dark.... RUN! :-)

                                • Yay! Will look forward to that... I learned a lot from the track walk at Pembrey thank you, and got quicker, OK, less slow, every session :-)

                                yesterday was the day for watching bikes go down. 1st the guy on the freeway, then later watching a very drunk person dump the bike trying to leave a pub. A group of us jumped up and stopped him. Later he sneaks back and tries again of course dumping the bike again... was a new Harley now has road rash... finally it is down to we will call the police or you give us the keys. While he wasn't looking somebody unplugged the sparkplug :) He then put his wife on the phone and I told her to come get her drunk husband before he kills himself or somebody else.
