Usually I just put all the pedals on top of my amp since i rarely have to switch them on and off mid song. Then I timed myself how long it takes to setup putting each pedal out one by one on a gig. 15 minutes from rolling in to sound out of the amp. Now "bang" "zoom" plug the bass in, plug the board into the amp, plug the speaker in, power to both, check tuning!

Hot pickup > Pog > octave up > Muff > ABY in b

Pog > clean out > EBS in > drive loop send > ABY in a

ABY out > Ernie Ball Vol > EBS drive loop return

Woofer Pickup > Mark Bass > MXR > EBS clean loop return

Both pickups get the compressor from the EBS

I can run the "hot" pickup full on for more fuzz from the "drive/fuzz" pedals and mix with the volume pedal or have the volume pedal full and back off the pickup for a little grit.

EBS out > Phaser > Zoom Volume pedal as master volume control

The EBS, Pog, Muff and Mark Bass are almost always on.

The ABY gives me three Fuzz tones, Both Muff & EBS drive, just EBS and just Muff.

  • What kind of case is that Terry Law?

  • It's a Pedal Train PT-1-HC. The board is 22 x 12 inches with a hard case.

  • Thank you sir!

Take a look of my (crazy) video in a 1998 Virago 750... it was really fast!!!

  • You start it!!! I tried to be respectful but yo said that i was writting BS... You receive what you give!!! Any way, it's stupid to continue this un-useful conversation with you, if you like the video, good!!! If you don't good too!!! The video is there some ones likes some others don't!!! Maybe if i see a video of you driving that video could be boring to me... But i'm not going to attack you for it!!! I just see it, and pass it!!! Have a good night!!!

  • Hans P Rorrian I have a tank off a 2000 V star classic(650) great condition 150.00 plus shipping.

  • Run regular.... The way they increase octaine now is to increase ethanol (alcohol) Gasoline works best at a 13:1 ratio (13 parts fuel to 1 part oxigen) , Ethanol works best at 6.4 t0 1, so if you increase the amount of alcohol to raise the octaine you are actualy making the engine run leaner than if you run regular fuel.

Can anyone tell me of a way to check and/or reset the timing on my 1999 VStar 650? When I rejetted the carbs with 122.5 jets supplied with the Hypecharger now I am getting a lot of back firing through the exhaust like the timing is retarded too much, especially when backing off the throttle quickly, and needs to be advanced a couple degrees. Thanks. Robert Sanders

  • James is on the track somewhat unwrap the fiberglass packing you still need back pressure or you risk loosing torque on takeoff.

  • If you don't adjust the pms screws it will never run right.... AIS removal helps but pms adjusts the fuel to air ratio from 0 to 1/4 throttle and it sounds like you are lean.

  • BTW timing is permanently set... no adjustment. If you get a Dyna 3000 you can change the advance curve, but not the timing.

Anyone running an audio system on there scoot? Be it custom pro-audio (DIY or sent out) or simple clip ons (like Shark Audio, Boss, Karyakian or how ever its spelled lol). Is your set up open to the air flow or behind a fairing/windshield?

  • Sony in dash am/fm reciever mounted in a coustom one off batwing fairing with Harley speakers.

  • I have but it's something that needs to looked at closely and thought through. You need to keep a close eye on the amount of watts/amps your drawing you need to maintain 14.1 to 14.9 volts going to your battery no less then 14.1 or you risk a dead battery. I've changed "every" light on my bike to LED for just this reason to save on the electrical draw. The Rectifier capacity's on a 1999 to 03 are 18 A 2004 and up are 22 A The charging systems output voltage is 14v/ 340 watts @ 5000 rpm @ no load it hit's the 14.9 mark. And a 400w system could be a stretch to put it nicely, I'd hate to see you spend hard earned money only to find out you may be stranded with a dead battery after jamming to your favorite tunes. Tip: add a volt meter...Mine is digital I want to see that .1 LOL

  • Darel, that right there is good info!!!! Greatly appreciate it! Ill note that.

    My only experience with mobile audio is with cars and trucks. Workin around something significantly smaller and not even a "Bagger" is quite challenging.

The guy on the video doesn't give a whole lot of information on them, other than they are Slashcut Cobra exhausts. And from what I've seen on hyperchargers, they all seem similar. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Horse Power or HP such a strange measurement for such a modern machine some... — Yamaha FZ6R Owners

Horse Power or HP, such a strange measurement for such a modern machine,,, some people think that having a 100HP bike is equivalent to having 100 horses on a rope pulling you,, not fast but powerful.. lol Horse Power was invented by James Watt (scotsman) who used the concept to compare new tech (steam) with old tech (horses). It was used as a selling point so people could work out if their traction engine was as strong as 20 horses, and it worked... It is quite complexed but in theory 1HP = 746 Watts. James Watt’s original equation was based upon the assumption that a single draft horse could turn a 12-foot mill wheel 144 times over the course of one hour. This is the equivalent of 2.4 rotations per minute. It was from this assumption that Watt derived a horsepower unit, which is calculated by multiplying force (or the amount a horse can carry) by distance and then dividing by time. Bike manufacturers sometimes use HP as a guide to how the bike will pull to gain a top speed, but the downfall is that some manufacturers quote HP from the crank and some from the back wheel. The HP on the crank will loose 15% by the time it gets to the back wheel, so understanding where the measurement is taken from is essential when comparing HP between bikes... Thought you might find it interesting ;)

  • Uh. Thanks their Cliffie (cheers reference).

    Being new to this I have tended to look into hp ratings when looking at bikes. I found the cc measurement to inconsistent. Not many manufacturers (in Canada seem to want their hp rating posted). 2 600 cc or 1000 cc bikes can have drastically different hps.

  • HP measurement is good but outdated, most country's only use HP as a supplement to their specifications. Torque is another measurement which is mostly pulling power.,

As requested a video of my EQ and distortion...

  • How controllable is that feedback at gig volume though? I've had a couple of pedals in the past that were fine at bedroom levels but squealed like a stuck pig a proper volume.

  • no problem at all .. I had everything dialed in and played 5 shows with this setup.... anytime I wanted feedback, I just moved closer to my amp and it was very controllable. It was such a relief to FINALLY have clarity and balance between Clean and Drive. Like I said before my original intention was to dial in clarity of distortion and eliminate the muddiness that the stock drive sound introduces, the controllable feedback was just an unexpected added bonus. (y)

  • I own some great high gain distortion pedals. And have played my basses through some killer high gain guitar amps too. IMHO the drive in the EBS is not a distortion but more of an overdrive. Distortion and Overdrive are 2 completely different animals. I wanted to get a distorted sound from the EBS but without all the nightmares that true distortion can bring, like extra noise, hiss, uncontrolled feedback etc. I spent a longtime on the "tone" of the EBS Drive. I would A-B the EBS and one of my favorite distortion pedals, listening to the frequencies that the distortion accentuated. It started out as a long shot but I convinced myself that I could "emulate" the tone of distortion with a simple graphic EQ into the loop of the EBS. I used a looper pedal so I didnt have to play, I could just listen as I switched between my distortion pedal and the EBS w/ EQ. Once i got a sound that I liked I worked on the balance between my new Drive sound and the Clean ... WOW this is way to much explaining on such a simple topic... try an EQ.. if you dont like it don't use it... pretty simple :)

im hoping someone can help me. bought these bar end mirrors (cant see out of regular rabbit ear mirrors) and when i removed the bar end, it is WAY bigger than the threads on this mirror. is there some adapter that im missing? i searched the fz6r forum and i cant find ANYTHING. the bars are 7/8' and so are these mirrors.... im so lost. -8-Bar-End-Mirror-for-SUZUKI-Y AMAHA-HONDA-KAWASAKI-Motorcycl e-Bike-ATV-/191112968670?pt=Mo torcycles_Parts_Accessories&fi ts=Model%3AFZ6R&hash=item2c7f3 879de&vxp=mtr

  • The bit you unbolted off the handlebar ends, it doesnt have a threaded bit screwed on to it so that you can screw it back in the hole without the ends and the mirros would fit? if you understand what i mean

  • Thanks Dan that's kind of what I was trying to tell him. Mine are rubber not metal, but same concept.

Hey guys hope im not doing something wrong here but ive wanted these bikes for... — Yamaha FZ6R Owners

Hey guys, hope im not doing something wrong here but ive wanted these bikes for awhile now. I am 17 and on my learner license in Nsw, i currently ride a hyosung gt650r which is derestricted, with my pipe it produces around 84hp. I upgraded from a cbr250rr and miss not only tthe sound of an inline 4 but also handling. I hear alot of different stuff about the fz6r's such as only being able to get full exhaust systems(no slip ons) and them being quite expensive aswell them being not as fast or sporty as the hyosung. I know the answers going to be biased but just try be as fair as possible, im looking for handling and power, i dont care too much for comfort and both bikes look awesome. Which one do you think is better and why? Should i stick with te hyosung or go to the fz6r? Thanks heaps.

  • Jeff, you forgot a comma between Pretty & Helpful.

  • Haha!!!! U stay pretty bro.... lol

  • Nevermind.... just saw what u meant.... fuckin english

  • Paul gosselin. U can take em off and stick them in a vis and pit just a small bend to it remember don't bend on it to much. They will bend perty easy. And that should do the trick for ya.

  • Loud is good. Too loud makes for a headache and cranky neighbors at 0530.
