I got back home from work yesterday and went to start my Bully which has stood for 8 weeks on CTEK charger and starter motor wont turn.

Battery is fully charged at (12.8 volts). Checked out the Yamaha trouble shooting guide and linked out the main power terminals on the starter relay and getting 12.7 volts to starter positive terminal but stll starter not even trying to turn engine. Looks like a new starter. Anybody else had the motor fail ?

Is the motor easy to remove ?

  • Or try to turn the startermotor with an external battery and jumper cable on the front connection on the startermotor.

  • Cheers Broos, I will give that a try next.

  • Just got my Bully back today, seems like the problem was the main battery earth cable were it attaches to the engine behind the swinging arm pivot, guess it mus have been corroded by road salt etc. Did not fancy the complication of renewing the cable behind the swingarm so the connection was remade and attached to the engine rear mounting, all seems OK, looking forward to a good test ride this evening.

  • Industrial Electronics Technician trick for testing Speakers. Test speakers by putting a AA 1.5v battery across the speaker wires, if it makes a bit of a pop and hiss, they are working, it's not the speakers. Just use jumper wires to attach speakers to the AA battery, just make sure there is no other power source applied at the speaker.

HELP — YAMAHA PICS MODIFICATIONS

!!HELP!!

My bike has started to die out at 4,000 rpms. Almost as if there is a rev limiter set to that rpm. When it hits 4,000rpm there is a "popping" sound that seems to come from under the tank... it pops then drops to about 3,000rpm... bike runs perfectly fine, up until exactly 4,000 rpm, in every gear.

Any ideas..? Im thinking maybe a ground shirt..?

  • My 2005 started doing that,took it in and they said it sounded like the bowls on the carbs was picking up junk,drained it cleaned the carbs put it back togeather and it ran fine for about two miles,had to take it back and they called me back in two days and said all was fine no charge.Yamaha called them and said what they needed to do was take carbs off and soak them for a certain length of time (24) hrs.and clean again.Do not know the brand of cleaner the used but man its been running like new.Yamaha said to be carefull if you adding to much additive to correct junk the refinery s are adding because what they are putting into gas is bad enough.

I ve run into something that I m sure is simple but it s just got me baffled... — YAMAHA PICS MODIFICATIONS

I've run into something that I'm sure is simple but it's just got me baffled right now. I'm installing a Maxair Predator Pro kit and while I'm at it I thought I'd install my Cruise Mate throttle lock also.

I've got the carbs back on and after I used the wrong tap on the switch housing (thread repair tap instead of the 3/8-24 I needed) I ordered a new switch housing. I went ahead and put the old housing on just so I could start the bike while I waited for the new housing to arrive.

While testing it out I found that the throttle was sticking. The new housing came in today and I put it on. The throttle still sticks with the housing tightened down. If you've got a suggestion as to where to look first I'd sure appreciate it. I'm sure I'm just overlooking something obvious but right now it's just over my head.

Thanks in advance y'all!

  • Your cables maybe backwards or possibly tightened to tight at the carbs

  • Or at the housing by the grip

  • Brian , you were right on your first post. The light came on this afternoon. I had to remove the carbs to replace a carb heater. When I reinstalled them I loosened the cables at the carb and that did it!

    I appreciate your help. On another note, I got a short test drive in and I highly recommend the Maxair kit. What a nice change!

  • Scott George, thanks! So the MaxPower 285 is sorta plug & play you mean! That's good then!

    I have ridden Gas Gas EC300 6 days enduro and KTM 300EXC in the trails. Yeah they have quite some power than the YZ250 but they are kinda like mellowed out and Gas Gas one is some kinda spastic in terms of power delivery. Both run in case reed engines.

    I definitely feel that the YZ250 is a lot more instantaneous in a sense in power delivery than those 300 big bore brands like the 300EXC. Now, has the 285cc MaxPower mellowed some of the 250 hit and instantaneous delivery OR NOT at all Scott?

    Can you describe the power delivery in terms of its added oomph and if there was no reduction in the pronounced instant power delivery typical of 250 MX-intended bikes?

So I've recently upgraded to a Raider. My brother is about to start his riding and i'd like for him to have my first motorcycle (01 vstar 650). I know he'd like it best if it was blacked out. I've had it apart and tank/front and back fenders painted black. I'm looking to black out the air cleaner, trans cover, shaft cover and exhaust. The covers I'm actually planning to use a dark dark shadow chromer. But the exhaust I want to matte black them. they are cobra drags. I'm thinking about using matte black header paint. my question is (since im a mechanic not auto body) would i need some sort of primer or just scuff up the exhaust? and if i use a primer does anyone know a primer that can handle that heat?

Rigged up some Wolo automotive horns. found em at an O reillys 11 a piece — Yamaha C3

Rigged up some Wolo automotive horns (found em at an O'reillys, ~$11 a piece) using a 40A SPST relay and some crimped connectors, running a new, separate circuit direct from battery with 15A fuse (yellow and blue wires), and using the stock horn wires (black covered wires) to energize the relay. Haven't test rode it yet (my back has been f'ed up from disc issues lately) but it seems to not interfere with the rest of the operation of the bike. I'm please with the loudness, and after I clean up the wiring I think the install looks pretty good. The front cover barely fits without directly touching the front of the top horn, and I just bent the straight brackets that came with the top horn to recess it into the area directly beneath the gauge cluster housing.

A few days ago, I was on the highway, going about 65 mph, when I noticed my bike wasn't responding well, to the throttle. I let off the throttle, reducing my speed to 55 mph. When I tried to throttle up, the bike barely responded. It took 30-45 seconds to reach 60 mph. The bike gradually began to slowed down. I decided to move to the shoulder of the road, cut the bike off, and look for any obvious problems. There was no smoke, strange smells, or anything. When I tried to start the bike, it wouldn't turn over. After pushing the bike up the exit ramp for several minutes, I tried to start it again. It cranked right up. Afterwards, I rode home with no problem. I haven't experienced any problems since then. I have an idea of what the problem was, but I'm not perfectly sure. What do you guys think?

Has anyone had a problem with the nut backing off of the countershaft on their 1300? I had some grinding coming from there. The dealer looked at it and that was their diagnosis. They also said that there was some damage to the shaft and sprocket. The put locktight on it and quoted about $3K to fix it. It rides fine now but I'm not sure how long their fix will last. I talked with a couple of bikers from work and they said there should be a cotter pin to prevent that. I opened up the cover and you could see where the hole in the nut was, but there was no cotter pin it. Is there any maintenance that would cause them to take that sprocket off (changing a rear tire maybe)?

Just received and installed a new Clevver Lever on my V Star 650. Those of you that are not familiar with this product it is a clutch lever that decreases the pull by 33% and increases the size of the friction zone by 50%. Overall I'm pleased with it. Was easy to install and does seem to work as claimed. Most of the free play is gone and the friction zone does seem to be a bit easier to find and stay in. However I do not suggest buying this product if you own a drill! It is simply a stock clutch lever with an extra hole drilled in it! I've attached a pic for anyone that wants to try this mod. The top hole is where the end of the cable was originally seated and the one directly underneath is where you would want to drill to make the new position for the cable.

  • I have been using gunk engine degreaser lately instead of gas and it works pretty good a notoil air filter May Come apart if you use gas ?? Not for sure on that one I either use a uni filter or a twin air and I've had good results with the both although I like the twin air just because they are two separate filters. An outside course filter and a fine inner filter. it's easier to clean I think but the uni is just as good a filter but it's one piece glued together or fused or however they stick the. Dual density foam together ??

I'm mounting up rear brake master clyinder for a one off hardtail XS650 rear brake setup, using the stock pedal and pivot shaft, and cant decide which route to take- mount the cylinder just outside the frame rail and make a tab to push it just on the inside of where the pedal mounts on the shaft, or leave the pivot shaft alone and mount up a linkage- attached photos of my two options at this point. Also thought about mounting it in front of the pivot, in the area where the electric starter used to be, but that seemed like more trouble than it was worth. Any input greatly appreciated!

Sadly I cannot contribute much just yet. I'm in the process of hunting down the appropriate xs650 to purchase. I just got my license the other day to legally operate a bike in the state of NY [NY is so strict with its laws]. I've been admiring these bikes for a couple years now and am finally really getting into it. So I figured I'll learn as much as I can so when the right bike comes a long I know all about them.

I do however have a question for those of you who have hardtailed your bikes: How long did the process take? and aside from the weld on hard tail, what else did you need to purchase to make it rideable again? I've heard some people say they just slapped the hard tail on and bolted al the stock parts back on and it was good to go. I dont think that is accurate though.

Thanks again for the add! I look forward to learning about and building my own xs650!

Hi Jacob Limburg I ve cropped some photos to show the knob patterns of the MX51... — Yamaha YZ250 2-stroke

Hi Jacob Limburg, I've cropped some photos to show the knob patterns of the MX51's. At the sides of each tire the name MX51 is also engraved, hence the same should also be seen at your rear tire. Cheers!

YPM Stuntman Update

I've been at home for over a week now, progress is good, I can walk and get out of most sitting situations unless the sofa swallows me then I'm in trouble lol

I'm still numb in areas around the base of the spine but there is still a lot of fluid and swelling there so I'm hopeful that will repair in time. TBH if that's all I have from the size of the off then I'll be happy, I'm very lucky.

Thanks go out to all the well wishers, I did read them all but wasn't in any fit state to respond most of the time being off my tits on morphine :)

Big thanks go to all that helped Jay with the clear up on Sunday, packing the van up and generally being there for her. Higgy and Elain are the best, they sorted the cazza out on their drive, then cleaned it and brought it back to where it lives in storage. That's a 300 mile round trip!

I'm humbled by the support and concerns of everyone, not only the YPM family but further afield from other classes and friends.

I got loads of visitors both local like Dick, Jason and the Higlett's and some surprise ones like Trev, Wrongun, Tenpin, the Grants and especially Moot, who went out for a Sunday ride and ended up at my bedside! 140 miles away! Those visits really made a difference, and cheered me up no end, thanks everyone.

So for now I'm still off work while I repair and the goal is to be at the TT in 2 weeks time. The bike doesn't look too bad but it's still in the van.

Obviously my season is over, but I'll be watching from a distance as the championships unfold.

Oh and the final count was 5 broken vertebrae T2, T6, T8, T9 & T10

Good luck everyone

  • Season over? I told you, mungo is preparing some sort of sidecar contraption in his barn. It'll be quite safe, he mentioned something about pairing a TZR and an old hovercraft or something............

  • There is no way on earth i'd ever get onboard anything with Mungo Prentice, i like breathing too much :)

  • You don't need to mate he tried mounting me 3 times at Snetterton lol
