Would the Yamaha raptor 350 gytr pipe fit my warrior

  • The plastic mounts are obviously different but the frame and the motor are basically the same

  • Raptor pipe will fit but the mounting tab will not line up. The pipe bend is slightly different. The frames are slightly different as well

  • Bottom end of the engine is pretty much identical. Heads will interchange, but camshaft bearings are different. Carbs are totally different as well as air box. I never measured, but I think the Raptor frame was a little taller above the engine than the Warrior. A-Arms and swing arm will interchange but the carriers are different offset where the rear brake caliper mounts.

Hi all, been redoing my lighting circuit on the XS today and had the ignition on for a while. I noticed that the right hand ignition coil got quite hot but the left hand coil is still cold (I haven't been running the bike, just got a battery charger on there). Thinking about it I have also had to replace the left hand spark plug twice as it stopped running on the left cylinder. I put that down to me not sorting out the carbs as it is still 'work in progress'. But maybe I have a problem on the left ignition circuit - any thoughts? Running standard points ignition. Thanks in advance

  • Mine did dat had a bad coil

  • Remember that your points are closed for most of the cycle. Thus, the coil is getting power. Coils don't like getting powered all the time.

  • make sure that one is not wired back to front

Quick question. Is is normal that when im in Neutral and try to rev it kills the engine? I'm wondering if it's a safety feature or something. Thanks in advance.

Also isn't there suppose to be a kickstand safety feature?

10 comments
  • ^Definitely doing that tonight

  • Figured out the stalling problem. My bike has been idling at around 8-900 Rpms. I looked online and it should be more around 1300. So I adjusted it and BAM DONE!

  • Now I just need to figure out this kick stand shut off issue. I think the switch is bad because I can unplug it, install it, push the switch manually/depress all in gear and the engine still runs!

    I need to fix this soon though I like this feature

  • looks good chris! well done.. to lower the suspension does it effect much on the drive ability.

  • If you lower the front and not equally the rear than the steering is much more fast. That can be good or bad. It all depends on the rider. It's been said that you can lower the front 2" max but people usually prefer .5"-1.25".

    Quicker steering does not equal better handling. There's pros and cons so if you do it just test it out before sticking with it daily riding like that.

  • If you're wondering why I like mines at 1.5" it's because I like fast input for daily riding. I don't do high speed straight lines or anything serious with this bike anyways so I like the input, comfort, and looks. If you like going fast 1-1.25" max is probably more ideal since small bumps (road reflector,dip, etc) at high speeds won't really affect someone.

  • Should always lower both the exact same amount, if you lower the front more then the rear then you may find handling is diminished, when you brake the waight goes to the front end, if the front is too low then the back end lightens too much and your rear wheel will lock up easily.. The bike is factory equally balanced to give you the safest ride and the best performance,,

  • Foot warmer, I see nothing wrong here lmao. I ran tbr + jbpro & no plates. And never had it happen. Little air might be getting in somewhere from the headers back perhaps? I'd still go with the foot warmer aspect it's not too bad, but more can hurt your engine.

Photos from Aimee Reed's post — Yamaha V-Star riders

Good Morning, y'all. Happy I found this VStar group on FB. Nice to see posts from other Yamaha riders. I just got my motorcycle license and very first bike one year ago. I bought a 2009 Vstar 1300. I hadn't even been riding 6 weeks, and i headed straight to Deal's Gap to ride The Tail of the Dragon! Best time I ever had! If you haven't done it, put it on your bucket list!.....Total milage round trip from Houston to the Dragon was 2,600mi. Not too bad for my very first ride, i guess. Lol. I'm going back next summer. :)

Anyways, I look forward to seeing y'all's pics and posts on this group page. Ride safe.

  • Hi Kenton......the most notable difference was the new tire selection....hahhaha...yah....I would say the overall handling of the bike......I also changed to a Penske shock and R1 front and rear bakes....I also built my own (corbin) seat for more comfort at speed and while cruising.....I noticed right away the significant difference in the way the bike felt.....glides over the bumps now instead of shuddering.....and the bike now rolls gracefully in and out of the twisties....sooooooo smoooooth. I love it

  • Very, VERY nice! Quality mods you've chosen! I'm not a fan of the *bling* mods (man, I hate that word), but a big fan of *performance* mods and you have made some brilliant mods. Well done, sir. (Y)

  • Thank you Kenton... I appreciate that very much....Frank Moore was really my biggest inspiration..so I must pass the credit along......the one thing that I did that Frank did not...was the speedo clutch mod on the front forks....from my understanding...it has never been done before......I took a Thunderace speedo clutch and cut it into the FZ1 front fork so I could keep the stock speedo working...I have posted the mod in here if you want to see it... :) The other mod which I did that was my own creation was the seat...that is also an FJ mod original.....lol

Hi guys — Yamaha XS650

Hi guys!

First post. Nice page

I own a 1066cc halco tuning monster that I'm busy making into a cafe racer.

She doesn't like to start

Runs like a demon when she does.

I have a decompression lever off a '74 on the left cylinder.

Busy taking the motor out to fit a decompression 'blue button' from a

Husqvarna chainsaw on the right cylinder.

Going to run new positive AND negative cables for the starter and battery, as well as lengthening the kickstart by 100mm.

It has a newtronic ignition.

Gonna reset it and put the engine back.

Wish me luck and any other suggestions would be much appreciated!

  • How the hell did u make it 1066cv

  • Cc

  • Big Holes :)

  • Well the builder stripped it all and did the calculations( see pics) and its actually 1180cc with a 10:1 compression ratio :-)

  • Holy tits!

Ok. So this engineer came past to check my bike — Yamaha XS650

Ok. So this engineer came past to check my bike.

Did a compression test. 11.5 to 1.

This is the formula that he wrote out.

He says we may need to redneck the head to bring the ratio down.

We need to measure the dome volume on the head by taking

A sheet of Perspex and holding it down and injecting Vaseline into the dome through a small hole drilled in the Perspex until full

Syringe is calibrated and can therefore measure dome volume.

The formula can then be used to work out how much we need to raise the head to get the compression down to an acceptable level.

Any ideas on what I should aim for?

Thank you

  • Thanks Dustin. Really food info :-)

  • Its all about the timing and carbs. Higher compression makes it harder to turn over.... not harder to start.

  • Thank you all! :-)

For your Info — Yamaha Sniper MX 135 150i Owners (SniperMX Philippines Visitors Page)

For your Info:

There are several things that could hint at bad plugs.

- Hard starting.

- Slight to severe hesitation when you give the bike some throttle.

- Stalling, especially when you give the throttle a good twist

- uneven idling (tends to zoom up, or down, or sputters)

- After running the bike for a little bit, take out one of the plugs. If the end of the plug is wet, its not firing, and it could be oil fouling the plug

- take a look at the color of the end of the plug -- if it is white, its running too hot, and it can cause misfires

- look at the same area, and if it is covered in black soot, it can be poor gas mixture and dirt in your tank causing it to foul

Apologies for basic question just bought a used attitude ltd — YAMAHA Attitude Ltd

Apologies for basic question, just bought a used attitude ltd

I notice the woofer pickup sits proud at the e string end and flush at the G string. Has it been badly fitted or is this normal?

9 comments
  • However, I will add that my woofer is higher on the bass side than the treble - which is the factory setup. I would guess that it's so that it accentuates the low end more than high end - that's what the split P pickup is for.

  • Thanks Greg it sounds great anyway!!

  • it's true that the 4th string needs more space, but that is allocated via the neck radius

Ok Progressive vs Geico. Who do you prefer — Yamaha V-Star riders

Ok, Progressive vs Geico? Who do you prefer?

Here's the deal. I lived in SoCal, was paying $249 per year for basic insurance on both of my bikes (2000 V-Star and 2011 Zuma 125). I called Geico to change my policy to Oregon, they quoted me $107 a year. When I moved up here to Oregon, they changed my quote to $199. WTF??? They wouldn't give me a reason. I call Progressive, they offer me same coverage for $158 a year.

Only problem I have is being able to pay the whole year up front. Geico will let me make payments for 9 months worth of instalments, Progressive wants it all up front, or pay $93.50 plus the 2nd month and a $23 payment fee.

My basic question is who has the better customer service? Flo or the Gecko?

Yamaha Vmax carbon body kit,

In mint condition, taken off my 2001 Vmax 10 years ago been in storage since. These parts have covered about 2000 miles the parts are original Yamaha parts not copies and the kit consists of carbon front mudguard with the mount/ brace, has a rubbing mark from speedo cable a carbon faux tank cover which is absolutely mint like new, side panels one has couple small marks, carbon rear mudguard with metal brace underneath and also comes with rear light with wiring, grab rail, billet indicators with wiring and the reflector. The metal number plate bracket has been trimmed down on side to fit a 6x4 number plate. All this for £500 ono.

Would prefer collection based in South Buckinghamshire, I could deliver locally at your cost or last resort to ship via courier at cost please bear in mind this kit is bulky and heavy so reflects in cost of shipping at £30.00 in UK only.

Any questions just ask.

Why do I Ride — Yamaha V-Star riders

Why do I Ride?

I ride for the enjoyment, mostly. I'll ride with friends. I'll

ride with strangers. I'll ride alone, or with just about anybody

who enjoys Motorcycle riding. I really don't care much, which

ride you choose, so long as you'll show a mutual respect for

all else that is out there.

I love to have the wind in my hair. Feel the pavement beneath

my Bike. And to be able to smell the ever changing atmosphere

that is different with every mile that I travel. And every season

that presents itself. The hot August days are no better, for me

than those cool brisk mornings. Each offers up it's own unique

opportunity.

I prefer my own style of motorcycle. I can still appreciate that

you have yours. It's what makes us all different in our own ways.

My lust for the camaraderie is not huge. But it's gracefully accepted.

When I ride solo... It's just Me, my handlebars, my thoughts, and

my entitlements coming to fruition. When I ride with Friends, I get

to share in theirs. And with strangers, a promise of something new.

I'm not a thrill rider. I ride to relax. When I'm on a motorcycle I get

to see the world with a much greater appreciation. Smell the world

with an enhanced sense of love. Hear the world with a much different ear. And feel the world with a greater explanation of what reality really is.

I'll ride with 2. I'll ride with 20. ....200 or 2,000. It really doesn't matter, so long as I ride. I'll spontaneously ride, or plan a ride for weeks, or even months. Too often, my ride has destination, but I'll always know that, soon I'll ride without. It's those rides that afford the greatest appreciations.

When I ride alone, I care nothing about how others might view me. My thoughts are selfish. If my own compassion does not get demonstrated, I am nothing. If my courtesy isn't revealed, I am even something less.

When I ride with others, I ride in an orchestrated fashion. In order to

comply with harmonious continuity with any and all of those around me. When I ride alone, I simply make it up as I go.

Hey guys. So I went to purchase oil today, and realised I didn't actually know what the best oil was! I was only able to get into a motor factors as the bike shops were closed so I got Castrol 10w40 semi synthetic motorbike oil. Haven't put it in yet, wanted to get some feedback before I did. Will this oil be ok??

  • Ross, not the 300v race oil, the 7100, it's full syth made for street use.. and yes, I've heard the 300v is only good for a few km/miles.. lot of track day riders use it as they are pushing the bikes hard for many hours and it holds up well.

  • Yes interesting read, considering that the company whose product came first was also responsible for the article.
