Out of great trials can come great blessings. This has probably never been more apparent to me than in this last week following the motorcycle accident that took down myself and two very close friends.

Knowing that I was now going to be riding my FJ1200, which was in dire need of a new rear tire, and aware of my current state of unemployment, I received a call last Sunday night from a 'mate who said that he and his wife would like to buy me a tire for my FJ.

I'm still recovering, getting better every day, in large part due to the friendship and support of my friends in the motorcycling community.

To Lori and Grant Bragg, thank you so much for the tire, my life is better because you are in it!

I need your help Lately I have been problems with my right shoulder hurting... — Yamaha V-Star riders

I need your help. Lately I have been problems with my right shoulder hurting while riding. Mainly along the top between my neck and shoulder and down onto my shoulder blade. I have had problems with a shoulder injury, but it never bothered me when riding until this year. I am thinking it is because I have to stretch forward some to hold the handle bars. I was thinking about how to fix this and may have an idea. I do NOT want to replace the bars. But I was looking and thinking about a different set of risers might bring the bars to me a little. I was wondering, on a 2009 650 Custom, how far can I go before I would have to get new cables and lines?

    Guys i must share this because i believe safety must be first and i was affected by Colin event. I have tested for a week a new helmet who changed forever the way i ride. The helmet is Shark Vision-R, the strong point of this helmet is that offers outstanding visibility for a full face helmet and maximum security (4 sharp stars, 5 is for the track oriented). At start i did not have big expectation but in real world when i ride i became so relaxed because i see everything and i can take decisions more quickly...even the way i put the bike on curve is completely different and precise...

    The helmet is flooded with air...normally this was my wish (because of the 35c)...but maybe is to much air now...the quality is outstanding too...maybe is not the perfect helmet but i will ignore everything because the way you feel the freedom in this helmet...and this is not an advertising is just my impressions :))

    Had a first happen to me this morning. I drive 52 miles one way to work — Yamaha V-Star riders

    Had a "first" happen to me this morning. I drive 52 miles one-way to work. Today was the first day in 2 weeks that no rain was forecast, so I rode the bike in. I got to the top of my exit ramp from the highway that is about 2 miles from work, and when I turned left to get on the secondary road, the rear of my bike got ALL squirrelly on me. I fleetingly wondered if the center lines were damp and caused me to slip when I crossed over them. I came to the next stop sign, which was only about 100 yards down the road and turned right, and it was even worse. I pulled over, and somehow, I had picked up 2 old, square-cut nails in the rear tire. How I didn't get them in my front tire, I have no idea, and I am lucky that it didn't go flat on the highway just 5 minutes before. I didn't have a plug kit with me, so I called some family who I knew had all the stuff that I needed, and they drove all the way up here and got me going again. Needless to say, a plug kit and a Co2 charging pump has already been ordered. I always used to carry a kit on my other bike, but completely forgot to get one when I bought this bike 3 years ago. I've never had a flat while away from home before; I've had tires go flat during winter storage, but never while out riding.

      Riding into work last night a guy stops me in the road to tell me to be careful, there is a truck with a building on top of it in the road. As I come around on of the many twisties I love so much here in the Ozarks, I see hazards. Here comes a truck with a cabin on the back. No flags... No reflectors... I get over almost to the ditch and the supports holding this up missed me by about 2 feet! If I wouldn't have slowed to a stop as far over as I did it would have crushed my skull. Neve saw the supports sticking out till it was about 5 feet away. Thank you to the douche bag in the truck.

        I have a Clear Alternatives integrated turn signal LED tail light assembly — Yamaha V-Star riders

        I have a Clear Alternatives integrated turn signal LED tail light assembly (around $65 new retail) mounted in a stock V Star 1100 Custom tail light assembly..... which in turn is mounted to a Baron's "Stealth" license plate bracket (around $120 new retail) for sale. These things really clean up the clutter on the back of your 1100 Custom. I've also added mini LED's on the sides of the Stealth mount (see pics) to act as side marker blinkers. The piece is in used condition, but looks great. One spot of peeling chrome on the backside (see pic) that can be fixed with some clear fingernail polish. I only have a red lens, so if you want a clear one, that option is available from many different vendors. Everything worked fine the entire time I had it on my bike, it's time for somebody else to enjoy it. I'd let this thing go for $75 shipped as is, shipped to your door in the CONUSA. First come with a Paypal payment gets it.

            • Too true about the fuel Pete, I have had problems with the fuel needle valves sticking shut while the bikes been stood over winter. When I stripped the carbs down I found slight corrosion on the needle shafts which stopped them dropping down with the floats. So I believe something in the fuel must be causing this. When will I learn to drain off the carbs over winter? lol

            • You'll learn about the time I do. When I finally got mine running this year, the float on the carb for the rear cylinder wouldn't close the needle, so I had black smoke pouring out of the one pipe. Luckily it seated with a couple taps, then I ran some Seafoam in it. Cleared it up in one tankful. But, I expect a good thorough cleaning, and rebuild before next spring.

              Saw something on the TV show Brain Games (I think it was). Know how we all comment on car VS bike accidents saying, "The car driver said they never saw me! WTF?" Well...according to the show, that's actually true and partially due to how the brain works. Sure, some car drivers are texting and otherwise a-holes, but what happens when we're at an intersection in a car is we look specifically for other cars - we're basically trained to look for objects *like* cars/larger vehicles. Even is there's clearly a bike right there, if we're not consciously looking for smaller objects, we (people) really tend not to see them. It's like we look right through them. Yes - people should all be trained to spot anything (including bikers/pedestrians, etc) but for whatever reason, we don't. Bikers do this as well while driving cars (although to a lesser degree). Kind of freaked me out to think it's not just lazy cagers and careless drivers - it's an EXPECTED function of the brain. Lesson: NEVER assume you are noticed on a bike. Have fun...be safe! Shiny side up! (sorry this is so long)

                %d comments
                • when is the stuttering happening ? looking at the curve -there is a definite case for getting the pv to open sooner -you effectively have 2 curves there - smoother is better. but I cant see the revs on the picture to be sure, also you have a flat spot just before peak power -normally associated with under jetting. there are many things that will make the bike stutter after peak power (the revs are too high for the set up you have, the carbs cant keep up, the timing cant keep up, the gas cant get out the pipes quick enough, the coil and plugs, the CDI etc etc ) - you should not be up that high anyway since you will be losing power.

                • D d d d d d don't have a c c c clue

                • A worn or poorly lubricated chain chain will do that at the top end of a power curve.

The dip main beams run off another position on the ign switch.

                  • Been very busy. Finally took engine out, and took head off.

                    Both exhaust valves are bent. It looks like there was some moisture in the exhaust. Quite a bit of corrosion on the exhaust side. Valves must have been stuck after sitting 10 years, and bent.

                  • I was interested if you would update us on this one. I did a top end re-build due to a valve being bent. My was due to the exhaust valve breaking and bending the inlet valve. The previous owner replaced the broken valve but didn't realise the other one was bent. Gave it a re-bore to as it needed it. Good t hear you've found the problem.

And the guy who had the 920 jerry-rigged something together for his fuel system. The petcock is on the left so the fuel is getting to that side but it doesn't seem to be getting to the other side of the engine. The bike is an 82' 750 with the stock carb setup.

But if that isn't the gas I'll just get one of those gas tank kits and redo the inside of it. But thank you both that definitely helps be figure out what I need to do. And yep that's the tank I have 1 petcock and a fuel meter.

                  • that thing is gonna look great, and I just checked ebay the only tank there is almost $400. Looks like I'll check out removing the rust with electrolysis or just pay the $50 and redo the inside of the tank haha. I really appreciate the quick responses though.

                  • no es que marque mal el sensor, a mi me marca tanque lleno cuando esta recien lleno hasta el tope el tanque, lo malo es queestamosa acostumbrados a que el nivel empiece a bajar cuando nos querda medio tanque y el del vrr marca desde el tanque lleno, por eso creemos que marca mal pero no es asi...

                    I am wondering how easy it would be to adjust the idle on my 2002 650 vstar I have been quoted anything from $100 to $350 for a service, I do the oil myself every 5000 km, just done the gear oil at 40,000 km it was really clean too. Seems here in Oz, I have been running the 98 Octane pretty much since day one, only to find out, that fuel is really designed for high performance engines which mine is not or so I am told, so I have run about 3 tanks of regular unleaded through it now and it does seem to run better, it really just purrs along at 110 kmh on the open road. It just seems to stall a little too much even when the engine is hot. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

                      Have a set of chrome spoke wheels off a 2004 Vstar 1100 Classic. Should work on just about any 650 or 1100 Vstar that isn't the custom model. Both rims have tires on them, but not exactly sure how many miles are on them. They've been sitting in my garage for the last couple years, and just need to be cleaned up a bit. Not sure on the axle size, but I can look it up if I need to if you wan to use these for a custom build. Located in Mansfield, TX area, will meet within reason or ship on your dime. Asking $150 OBO for both rims and tires.

                        • cuanto sale un escape? a mi me pasaron 1800por uno a medida

                        • Para mi el escape te va a permitir estirar más los cambios, pero tené en cta que tenés un carburadorcito de 26mm... si modificás el conjunto de varias cosas, vas a ganar mucho, con un escape a medida sin tocar nada más Fabian Cros dice que la ganancia real son 2cv. En el caso de mi moto, la lumbrera de escape está en 198° no se si el VRR std venía así, pero esos 198° y con el area de lumbrera que tenés te permite preparar hasta las 12k RPM, no así los transfers de admisión (no recuerdo ahora la apertura, pero creo que daban para 10,5K), habría que trabajarlos un poquito nomás (por alguien que sepa dar el tiempo area, y los ángulos y direcciones de ataque correctos. luego un carburador, 30mm o un poquito más (para mi 30 estaría bien) y sobre todo, asegurarte tener el encendido 10 pts, buena chispa y que tire RPM, con esas modificaciones yo estimé con un escape a medida que podés dejar la moto en unos 35cv a 11.500-12.000 RPM (estarías como un KR)

Pretty sure there's a solution in there somewhere. Everything we've run across with our boat has been there. :-) Good luck!!!

                        • I have 3 of them :) got a brand new engine in it, frames done too. Got some parts on order, got the rims refurbished. Also 1 of the bikes has been parked since '98 and only has 15,000 miles on it and it totally stock and complete. Then I had the first one I bought that I've been taking parts off of because the engine was too costly to repair.. I'll post a pic here of all 3 as they are right now. I love my bike but the money going in is starting to get to me. If I sell them everything goes as a package.

                        • I know what that's like, taking care of my bikes and plane consumes my spare time and money too.

                        • I keep saying I'm gunna sell them, but honestly probably not as I've yet to find another bike I love as much as the FJ. I was set to buy a different bike after I found my engine issues but after looking for like 3 months I decided to buy 2 more for parts and restore 1.. Got 2 of everything now thou for parts. :) need to order new tyres, bearings and brake/clutch lines are coming

                        • Drilling out the stock mufflers will only increase the volume of the exhaust. Removing the AIS system will stop the bike from back firing or "popping" while decelerating.

                        Just got home from the 33rd BMW Vic Icicle ride.

                        The Little FZ6R held its own with the big bikes riding at an average of 60mph thru dark twisty, winding forest roads in the rain & darkness. With extremely poor visibility at times & nasty slippery road conditions.

                        Heaps of close calls, heaps of fun.

                        Love my bike.

                        • get a few pairs of these silicon medical gloves and put a pair on under your bije gloves, works a treat on long late night rides

                        • I hook up a cruise control on mine and it helps a lot. In a straight road or highway you can even let go both hands if you are confident with your balance.

                        • Hah cheers Dan, Not a bad idea. Thankfully my hands didnt get wet, thanks to the bark busters.

                          Yeah Elmer, I gave the whole throttle control thing a go last year....I wasnt impressed by the throttle lock product.

                          I use a throttle paddle to assist on long rides. Also helps in the twisties in close formation with other riders, when I like to have a couple fingers guarding the brake.

                        What are the things I should be doing after buying a used bike? I bought a 2003 V Star 1100 4 weeks back that had 3500 miles on it. I have been riding it occasionally. I use the regular 87 grade gas in it. Some people told me to use non ethanol gas, but I am not sure where to find them. Someone also recommended me to use Seafoam. Now this might sound very stupid, but I really don't know much about how Seafoam is used on motorcycles. The seller said that the carbs were professionally cleaned and the oil has also been changed. Is there anyway to verify that? What else do I need to check from a mechanical perspective?

                          • So what would be best way to do that if you dnt mind me asking

                          • There is a whole thread on engine break in on the boards but the simple version is this: Ride thru town and when you can get on the freeway (and when its safe) work thru the gears. Just don't say "ahh, 500 mile break in period - lets go 65mph for 500 miles to Kansas in 6th gear." Being a new rider don't do anything that makes you uncomfortable, keep your head up, and look thru that turn :)
