    • It's located right behind the front cover of your scooter.(That flat black, oblong cover plate, right behind your feet, when you're riding your C3...) To reset it, turn your ignition switch on and off rapidly, three times in a second or less, then start your scooter as usual...

    • The stock airbox is so well designed, that nothing I did to my scoot... Not the jiangwayne airfilter, or a 4" K&N mesh filter on various lengths of intake tracts,(With a fuel controller,) was able to make better performance & mpg....Some are machining metal from the sliding sheave to cause the pulleys to get closer together and the belt to ride higher for a higher gear ratio.

    Dealing With PMS. Parked Motorcycle Syndrome — Yamaha V-Star riders

    Dealing With PMS (Parked Motorcycle Syndrome)

    The symptoms of PMS (Parked Motorcycle Syndrome) have been well documented by the medical profession and renown faith healers in biking circles. The condition is rampant in the winter. The more obvious signs include:

    • Yelling at weather forecasters on television

    • Putting on your helmet in the house

    • Cursing each day of winter

    • Regarding your home as a prison

    • Telling people to “Shusssssh,” whenever a motorcycle is thought to be heard

    • The feeling that your spouse has not stopped talking since the first snow fell

    • Sitting at an eastern window for hours on end, drinking, waiting for spring, like a character in a Russian novel

    • Fire a yzf thunder ace rear end on as I did. Easy mod. Check out fj mods on your google search engine

    • Had trouble getting a matched set last time, with a 17" front and a 16" rear. Finally got a set of Avons that aren't too bad. I can scrape both sides and not have to change my undies in the wet!

    • I am in 100% agreement with the Avon series. I ordered and received my brand-spanking new 1991 FJ1200 in West Germany. It has carried me (and sometime kids or wife) for decades from the English Channel to the Czech border, from Northern Germany into Austria and Switzerland, at triple digit speeds from tank full to tank full. After hours and hours of laps on the Nurburgring circuit, I still have my FJ; in original condition and setup; except for the tires. After using nearly every other brand ... in all types of weather conditions (including a raging thunderstorn with hail and nearby funnel cloud at 1:30 in the morning on I-80 eastbbound), the Avons have proven themselves to be a significant confidence builder for this type of bike. Granted not the best tires for high speed track work. But they cannot be beaten for the intended purpose of this bike. Sport Touring for long distance fun. I should know! I have already ridden my FJ twice in 24-hour runs, for the Iron Butt 1500 endurance awards. So, if you are fortunate to own a well kept FJ --- ride on! BTW: I also have a 2007 Honda Goldwing. But that is another story.

    • First, remove the screw that secures you're C3's front cover, (The oblong, flat black plastic, cover located just behind tour feet, when you're riding your C3...) A #30Torx Security bit is requiured to remove it, although a pair of pliers works in a pinch. (The reason for this oddball fastener, is to discourage a would-be thief from taking your' scoot's $300 ECU, that's right behinnd it.) Next, look down at the area adjacent to your ECU, for a little black plastic push-pin resembling a,"Bullseye." Take a mini phillips head screwdriver, small drift punch, or nail, and push on the center of the one on the left, (Looking down from sitting on your scooter) unlocking it, and remove it. Now raise your seat and have a look into the ,"Trunk." About midway down, and in the center of the left side you'll find a phillips head screw. Remove it. Looking from directly above at the left rear of your open trunk, you'll find 2 phillip headed screws. Rmove the outer one. Get a flash light to remove the last two fasteners. Laying on your back, looking up at the left rear of your scooter you'll see another phillips headed serew. Remove it. Now, sitting right behind your tailight, and shining your light up into the area behind,and to it's left, you'll see another push-pin fastener with a ,"Bullseye," head. Once again, push in it's center, and remove it. Just behind the C3 emblem, on the left panel is a hole on the frame, that has a rubber grommet inside of it. The panel has a male fastener that snaps into the grommet, for added security. If you'll slide your right hand in brtween the panel and the grommet, and gently rock it back & forth,it will eventually pop loose. The airbox is the oblong, black plastic box just behind your laft leg. Remove the screws securing the cover and wiggle it 'till it comes loose. Remove the airfilter, + install a new one... If you turn your new airfilter over, there's a metal,"Noise Restricting" plate affixed to the rear of it with nylon fasteners. (It also restricts mid range power...Can anybody say,"Nascar!?" lol!) It's easily removed with a sharp knife....Put your new airfilter back where the dirty one was, and reassemble the airbox, side panel, + front cover, in reverse of how you disassembled them...You've added a noticable amount of midrange power in the 26-33mph range, where it's most needed to pull hills, better throttle response everywhere, perhaps a mph of top speed, and a bit more fuel economy to your scooter...The downside is the airbox now honks like a Canadian Goose! A pretty good tradeoff ! You'll have to reboot your ECU. Simply turn your ignition on and off, rapidly, three times in a second or less, then start as usual...

    • there ya go.

    • OK.... I'm a little confused.... a suzuki lt230 is a two-stroke..... a "header pipe" more commonly known as an expansion chamber on a two stroke is going to make a huge difference..... a good expansion chamber for a two stroke takes 20 different formulas and hundreds of hours of design...... the warrior is known for having a good head pipe from the factory... the tubing is adequately-sized and free of kinks..... you have to re-jet an engine to compensate for more air..... right now I have a 155 main in and the jetting is pretty close.... that is about what other warriors with big three mods run as far as jetting so the airflow must be really close....

    • Lt230 is 4 stroke lt250 is 2 stroke

    • Also on 4 strokes more is to be had in changing out the muffler than header

    • Simon, The Weather part of it

      As humidity increase, the fingerboard absorbs moisture and expands, forcing the neck to bow away from the pull of the strings. This is most common going from winter to summer. When humidity decreases, the fingerboard releases moisture and contracts, forcing the neck towards the pull of the strings.

    Just thought I would inform you guys of a cool, inexpensive pedal that works great at getting Big, Fat Bottom out of smaller combos. I also find myself using it when I cant use my normal 2 amp set-up.

    The pedal will slightly filter the low mids and actually cleanup some mud even when it is set to 100% dry. With the low boosted it adds HUGE low end without messing with the normal sound of the bass.. it will also add in nice highs as well.

    I highly recommend trying this little guy, especially for $67 shipped.

    • My experiments proved, (To me anyway.) that the stock C3 airbox, with a few basic mods, is so well designed, that it makes better power than any other replacement. Plus, it filters the the crankcase vent air two times better than that little blue airfilter that comes with the kit.

    • The only difference between the stock, & aftermarket exhaust systems is the pipe looks really neat, makea a bit better midrange power (At the cost of being a lot louder.) and makes your C3, 11 lbs lighter.....For $300. My new shop is about completed, the first thing I'm going to do is put my C3 back in the factory stock condition. Then, I'm going to start with the basic, low or no cost mods that I've found to improve performance & tell y'all about it as I go.

    • good to know...im not gonna spend that much from the wayne just some odds n ends...ive found a good supplier of both OEM n aftermarket all within my state whooo!!!....de construction coming soon going simple and im lookin into a ruck!!

    • Mr.Jiangwayne is "Good Folks..." I bought the first C3 scooter exhaust system they made. (The Pre-production,unit.) When it's upswept design began causing heat damage to my scoot's right side cover, he listened to what I was telling him about it, and redesigned the header pipe.As a result, the newer pipes many of you have bought from him, are much lower, ending the heat damage. (And,he gave me a newly redesigned head to exhaust, pipe as a thank you gift!) They missed it, with their, "Unlimited rpm ECU..." (It only added 250-300 rpms...) And, have taken a lot of heat because of that. However, back in '08 when websites, and parts manufacturers, were laughing at me, for trying to source High Performance parts for my scoot. He, and Joel Martin, at MRP (Dr.Pulley) alone, started making parts available. (At, what had to have been a considerable risk,at the time.) Sure, they made mistakes. (Amybody here that hasn't? Yeah, I thought not! lol!) We owe them a debt of gratitude, for showing everybody else that the, "Ugly Duckling," could become a swan! And, that there was a market out here for C3/Vox/Giggle performance parts...Not a few BW50 2T riders, have had their feelings hurt, when they weren't able to keep up, as a result! Gabe

Once I have that information I'll point you in the right direction so you can make a purchase. There are other options if you don't want original equipment but fit in the dash may become an issue.

    • Crank it up n piss the neighbours off I say. Full tilt is the way if they don't like it use your attitude to fend them off. Mine has seen several incidents of action and is still going strong, hahahaha. I think the thing is here, just bugger about until you find what you like, I am everyday and I'm still not happy but I'm sure it'll come. Good luck and get the decibels pounding.

    • Adam, guitar speakers generally aren't geared for low bass notes, but then again I have no way of knowing where you had the settings. If you had only the highs cutting through, you may need to turn it down a touch

      Going back to the movement of the speakers, think of a cross-section of a speaker. A bass speaker may vibrate back-and-forth over a 1/4" of space (exaggerating a bit for the purpose of description), while a small speaker mean for high notes will move very quickly and may only cover 1/16". When a speaker has to push high and low notes, it has to fight with itself to cover all of the movements and vibrations. Speaker placement may also have a lot to do with what you're hearing. If you have the highs blowing out at the same level of your head, it makes sense that the slapping/scratchy sounds are prominent. Try putting it lower to the ground, or directing it to another area of the room.

      All of this said, it really depends on what kind of gear you're playing through now. If your amp has a built-in crossover, and your cabinet has a couple 10" speakers to go with the 15" or 18" bass speaker(s), this may all be for nothing.

      It's about experimentation, and seeing what works best for you and your sound. You may find that what worked for Billy's stage sound 25 years ago may have been succeeded/improved by better technology. Keep working at it and be innovative. Try new things, and let us know of your progress. We may learn something we haven't thought of before. ;)

This is a great Group with a bunch of different angles, ideas, and opinions on the beauty of music and how it can get from our head/heart/soul to our fingers and out to the world. Y'all keep rockin'!!!

    • Wise words Mark Sobus ! :-)

    • With one piezo under bridge could work well ?

    What would life in America be like without veterans There would be no Memorial... — Yamaha V-Star riders

    What would life in America be like without veterans? There would be no Memorial day, no Labor day, no Independace Day, no Thanksgiving, no Christmas or New Years day celebrations, No vacations or Holidays to take off from work, or just a day off to go riding your motorcycle. To have the freedom to pick and choose what job or career we wish to do. To have the freedom to choose where we would go to church, or ...even be allowed to go to church. So, the next time you see a Man or Woman in uniform, whether it be fatigues or a fancy dress uniform, alot of times they are just wearing a hat. Stop them, shake their hand and say thankyou! Because without those BRAVE Men and Women, the life you are living would probably not exist. Thank you ALL of my BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN ARMS!!!!

    • Meine Dogge wartet auf ihre nächste Gassirunde...und solange dase Wetter so Herbstlich ist, fahre ich mit meinem Piaggio Roller zur Arbeit ;-)

    • Ich fahr das ganze Jahr, bzw. lasse meine 'Dog erst zu Hause wenn's Schnee oder Eis auf der Strasse hat... Leider geht das Schmelz-/Salzwasser nicht ohne Spuren an ihr vorbei...

    • Vor allem das Salzwasser....deswegen hab ich seit kurzem einen Roller für den Winter und mieses Wetter. Voll das Kontrastprogramm zur Dogge, aber irgendwie auch gar nicht mal schlechtt :-)

    • The LH1000 eq set at 12 O'clock gives a fantastic clear sound that cuts through like nothing else I have heard or owned.

    • Cutting the bass a little when at high volumes gives a similar effect to boosting the mids,

    • One secret billy used was to play Highs through 15" cabinets back in the day. It's a backward approach but it worked!

    This is a first for me. Today on my way home from my bro s scooter shop — Yamaha C3

    This is a first for me. Today on my way home from my bro's scooter shop. I was open throttle on a very slight down grade. My town is designed its street for water flow down to the river. So there are very slight up and down grades here. She actually at one point cut out completely. I hit 8000 RPM'S. But soon as I let go of the throttle and slowed down she kicked right back on. It was like a 4 sec black out. Awesome!!! Never did this with the stock variator set up. Sense I installed the Dr Pulley Kit for the Yamaha Zuma and modified to fit the C3 she runs so much better and definatly a higher top speed. That was too much freaking fun.

    • Yamaha may have different rev limiters on the C3 scooter. When my scoot was stock, I never hit a limiter of any kind. I installed my Dr.Pulley variator at about 2,500 miles, and still no cutting out of my ignition. It wasn't until I removed my airbox + added a K+N airfilter, (Along with my jiangwayne exhaust & a fuel controller.) that my scoot finally hit the limiter.Up on the center stand, at about 9,000 rpms.

    • I used to get that a lot on downhills. stock. it just gets really quiet until you start to slow.

    • That would be cool. Hope it's after August (stuck here in Korea until then). If not, maybe someday.

    • If I could see the "Wife" bass in person before I died, it would complete my bass playing mission on earth ! I've been obsessed with that bass for as long as I can remember.

    • Playing your attitude with LEDs and the pearloid covered pickups (both covered that way) it would truely make me a very very happy chap! That bass got me into bass, and into the attitude. I played one and the neck had me sold!

      I truely hope i can make it!

    • of course the fact is thati putted on the dimarzio pick up but the orginal one had only the fender pick up original actualy i guess it's a cables problem but i'm not sure, anyway i'll check again by myslef only the cables and the pick up again, hehe still have to study a lot about basses :)) i would have more time for them!:)

    • Ah maybe the soldering is dodgy or coming undone then

    Who s doing what to prepare for cold weather riding — Yamaha C3

    • When it gets in the 50s, I can't live without my full face helmet. I just zip a jacket all the way up and I'm warm as toast. When it's only in the 40s, I park it.

    • I ride year round here in south alabama...The problem here isn't as much the cold, as it is the constant 80% humidity, and resulting wind chill.When it's below 50 deg, I wear flannel lined jeans, wool shirt, lightweight fleece windbreaker, under a denim,armored jacket, insulated leather gloves,& a face mask that gors doen into my jacket, under a full face helmet. It looks like I just robbed a liquor store! However, it has kept me comfortable down to 24 degrees....

    • "And, a face mask that goes down into my jacket...." I believe this keyboard needs to be cleaned or replaced!
