  • Damn PER-Erik , i really love your style on that cool XS , the Patina , "White-Wall" rear tire , your special Exhaust and ETC ETC...... On a "Drive-By" nobody can see it´s not a "old English-man" of some kind.!!! But as i told you before , i´m so damn hooked on your Seat Per-Erik , but i think i can buy it by "XS650 Shop" in Kiel/Germany?? Stay cool Per-Erik and a big respect for your build Bro......

  • Lennard!

  • Thanx for the kind words Steen, very much appreciated. This is a bike that you either love or hate, it seems to be nothing in between. ;)

I have an 08 V-Star 1300 XVS Tourer. I bought it in 2010 with 808km on it,so it was practically new. It has only 29000 km now. Last year my front brakes started to make the front end bounce when they were applied. Still doing it this year. I know it's because my rotors warped. Was just wondering how common a problem this is with the front twin brake set up on the 1300's and bigger. Seems to me my rotors should have lasted longer than that before the started warping. Is there a better aftermarket rotor?

  • George Henderson, great point on the caliper piston being stuck. When I replaced the pads on the rear I noticed the piston was basically stuck in the out position due to the worn pads. I actually purchased and replaced the piston and dust seals this morning. The rear brake feels so much better now.

  • It never occured to me to think it could be a piston stuck! Thanks guys! I'll definitly take a look. It only takes a minute to pull the front ones off. I might even be able to tell without taking it off!

  • change the rotor or deal with it otherwise, and don't try to wrap your head around it. it is your main source of stopping power. IMHO, you shouldn't even ride with a problem like that.

Hello All — Yamaha FZ6R Owners

Hello All,

I have been an owner of 2009 FZ6R for three years (8700 miles) now *bought new in 2011*, I am just wondering what average fuel mileage is on an average stock FZ6R with NO mods, (except I replaced tires, with same brand and style, only difference is that rear tire is 10mm wider than old one....(3/8"=10mm)(maybe slightly larger circumference, but not much)

specs claim fuel tank holds 4.6 US Gals. amd I was on a benefit ride, I fully filled tank night before, total trip was 191 miles, and it showed that I was already 10 miles into my reserve upon my return to house, that computes to 40mpg, give or take 0.2mpg

Any replies would be appreciated....

  • what about the fx6 headers, will they fit as far as up to the collectors ?

  • (y) no worries, just was mentally thinking I usually went a bit farther than that between fill-ups , I love the bike, and will be keeping it for a good while

  • James I just got 43.2 with a power commander and an average speed of 70-80 MPG. If I had to point the finger, I would say that the wider tire is not helping anything. Always a draw back with stuff like that.

Hey guys and gals!!! Rosie is got a little issue. Last night after I got home, I turned off my bike as usual and rolled it back In the garage. As I'm doing so I heard a "clunk" coming from the rear of the bike. This morning when I got to school it didn't it again. It sounds more like it's coming from the break side not the final drive. Anyone had this problem before? I'll be taking it apart tonight to find out what's the problem but I just want to see if anyone has had this issue and can tell me what I should look for.

By the way recently I change both rear wheel bearings and aligned my final drive shaft

I did not grease the hub because I didn't have the proper grease which by the way what kind of grease so you guys recommend?

Thanks in advance

      • Well I mounted the radio to the fairing using 20 pound double sided tape. That tape holds very good. The speakers are mounted using the bolts for the windshield they was a perfect fit.

      • How easy was it to mount that stereo to ur fairing

      • It was was I guess pretty easy. The only thing I had to think of is where I wanted to hook the power to. Did not want a direct link to the battery so I wound up hooking it up to the front light. That way the radio is not powered until the engine is started. I also went down to auto zone and got a cb plug so I can unplug it when I want to take the fairing off.

      • Jay research it out. I am on many quad forums and at the local Yamaha dealer a lot. There is plenty of information out there supporting the fact that Wiseco cranks are farmed out to an outside supplier and are junk. I will never EVER put a Wiseco crank in anything I build for anyone.

        Me puse en contacto con un ingeniero de CESVI que es el laboratorio donde se realizan las homologaciones de los cascos. ahi mando mi mail primero y su respuesta despues.

        Señor Gustavo De Carvallho: Me comunico con usted a fin de que me interiorice con respecto a los tamaños, colores y materiales que debe tener segun el CESVI ( y si conoce el dato segun el INTI) como asi tambien las especificaciones de homologacion de cascos son respecto a si pierden la misma una vez pintados o agregado algun tipo de calcomania. Muchas gracias por su atencion. Luis Marques.

        La respuesta.

        Estimado Luis Marques,

        los detalles a los que hace referencia están especificados en la norma IRAM 36021:2011. En la misma se describe como se deben realizar todos los ensayos, además de la identificación que debe tener el casco. Cualquier alteración a esta norma que sufra el casco, impide que el mismo pueda pasar la normativa y por lo tanto entiendo no estaría en condiciones de lograr su homologación. En este punto es importante mencionar que si bien CESVI es el laboratorio de prueba de cascos utilizado por el INTI, este último es la autoridad de aplicación de la cual se vale Secretaría de Industria para extenderle la homologación (CHAS) a los cascos. Con ello, en la página web de la secretaría, se pueden verificar los modelos de cascos homologados y el número CHAS que se le ha otorgado.

        Con esto, tenemos que si se pinta o agregan calcos que alteran las propiedades del casco o impiden leer los calcos originales, se estaría en presencia de un casco que puede perder sus propiedades, o tal vez no pueda ser identificada su homologación.

        Muchas gracias por su consulta.

          • You don't need a PC immediately if you're new exhaust has a silencer in it.

          • And If in doubt, try the leanness test as I posted above, but Matt is likely spot on about the silencer thing. It makes sense given the assumed decrease in exhaust outlet surface area a silencer would afford.

          • I went from AdvGear RevB on exhaust with silencer to a stock map. Bike runs a little cleaner with slight decrease in power. Bike seems a little happier. I have cranky neighbors so I usually leave my silencer in.

            • Shaun, try Bennies cycle in Minot, nd. The guys a rip off artist, but he's has parts like you won't believe. I always had to pull my carbs off EVERY spring for a quick cleaning. I rubbed the boots down with silicone grease (inside and out) every time and let them sit for about an hour, then wiped then dry it really helped to keep them soft. Worked great.

            • I found new ones on ebay for 45 bucks My local yamaha dealer has them brand new factory stock 147.00US mine are all bad but ay least its ridable till my new ones come in test drove it And actually DID blow a

            • As much as my virago pissed me off, I will say this, my xv750 was faster off the line than my vtx1300. The vtx is a much nicer machine though. I always wanted to keep my virago and turn it into a cafe racer just for fun around town. I just didn't have the time for the project though.

            Question... We have a xs650 that was gave to us no title no tank. Is there any specific designs or markings that separate different models?

            • More than welcome man! One thing you should do is get it running first before you blow it apart if at all possible, saves on the headaches later.

            • Yeah I had planned to hit the motor first

            • Forgot you didn't have a title, get that done before you go too far.

            • I have seen fan cooled heatsinks that work well. But definitely not for outdoors

            • Yeah. The whole aluminum housing in these lights is the heatsink. They don't get very hot.

            • Did you make sure your idle speed was correct should be around 950 to 1000 rpm

            • It's fine, ride it!

            • I know Tim, with your stuf its allways fine. Just wondering :) for others i dont give a rats ass what size are the jets because I trust the man who sold them to me :) the exhaust is dragpipes with paffles and dbkillers. Shall we call it of, it runs great all the way to the max throttle so its gotta be fine like Tim said, lets ride :)

            • I think you would have to be doing some serious wide-open throttle racing, to notice any hesitation problems caused from the float levels.

            • Looks like I have a little more research to do before I pull out the credit card.LOL But seriously thanks for all the help guys, until the other day I never even heard about pod kits.

            • A pod kit just puts a filter directly on the intake elbows where the intake box would be. It's the simplest, cheapest, and most effective.

            • meron turnilyo ser sa block. 6mm un sir. Nasa gitna ng block. Dun mo drain un collant mo kung gusto mo palitan. Hindi tutulo ang coolant kapag naka takip pa ang Rad Cap. Habng drain mo tanggalin mo yun reservoir. Palitan mo ng bago. After ma drain kabit mo lang un bolt na 6mm. Tapos lagay mo na coolant.

            • kapag meron pa thermostat yan. Paandarin mo habang naka idle lagyan mo coolant.

            • prang langis lng po yan ung sa baba psikot ikot lng un punta tqas punta baba prang nag rretorn lng po kya sa taas m salinan paps

            I have a 1989 Warrior and it leaks oil pretty bad on the side by the shifter and I was wondering could it be that the o-ring for the oil filter cap is bad or do I have another issue. I went over the case and it appears that there's no cracks or anything but the chain was popped once and broke off the part by the front sprocket but no damage to crack the case or anything. Please let me know ASAP. Thanks

            • Lol you know I'm only like 30 minutes from you?

            • Haha yea but I wanna get into working on shit by myself a little bit. If I need help with anything I can take my quad to gap racing and have it redone for half price by the owner. Sent me a friend request so I don't have to search for this post tomorrow or Monday lol.

            Just replaced my 4-1-2 Kerker with a Stainless Supertrapp 4-1..was a pain but worth it as it looks like I can reach drain plug without removing headers and with my RPM oil adapter it will make oil changes a lot easier.

            I know the motors changed a lot from 98 to 99 but the rest is pretty seems to be the same. Anybody know if the carbs are the same. Finding good deals on carb kits for 99 to 01 but nothing for 98 on the couple sites I buy from.

            One of my bad riding experience abroad (some locals there but not all said Filipinos are slow on thinking and so fort)

            Oh really... :putnam:

            I was really speeding one hot afternoon, where a young rookie police officer pulled me over for speeding

            Officer : Nice baik! syiuzuki (suzuki daw) ! (while taking off his shades),can i see dreebers leisins? are u filipin? you tink u pipil are fast?(base on their accents)

            Me : an R1 sir,yes i am filipino and i don't have any license. expired!

            Officer : may i see you peeper of this motosikal?

            Me: It's not my bike too!

            Officer: su you seeyeng you stool this motosikal?

            Me: (while sliding my hand inside my suit) infact i even shot the owner of this bike few hours ago

            Officer angas namutla nanlaki mata napaatras dahan dahan while smilin a grin on my face staring at him as he radios his captain/superior for assistance and reporting and started to point a Tazer at me (thank God he did not pull the trigger).Not long 4 police bikes arrived and the captain approached me to handle the tense situation..Officer angas stood by his patrol car smiling at me at umiiling iling the captain interogates me

            Captain : good dee sir, kin i see yur leesense?

            Me : (in good mood smiley feeling ) :-) ofcourse sir here it is. (valid license ko and updated)

            Captain: is dis yu motosikal? can i see d peepers?

            Me: yes it is mine sir. sure no prob sir reaching for my wallet (Girbaud wallet na uso noon un mahaba) inside my suit pra mapakita un rehistro ng bike all valid syempre..

            Captain : mai officer seed you shoot someone? he said you hab gun in yur jeket? can we check u ap? could you sloleeh ah open your jeket..?

            Me: Sure sir no prob,,(which i did followed his command)

            one of the his officers that escorted the captain did the checking and they found nothing on me from head to toe..

            Captain : (gulantang na) i don't understan, my upiser who stopp you said u don't hiv liseense, no peepers of this dis dis motosikal (pawisan katirikan ng araw) and he iben sed u shot d owner of this baik...yet i see no prublim (while looking angry at his rookie officer from his patrol car)
