    So here's the the deal I have an 82 so far I've replaced the starter changed the oil charged the batter and sprayed the carbs with cleaner after that it started and ran great I went to start it the other night it turned a little bit and then nothing I have power but it seems like the starter isn't getting any power or maybe my starter switch is bad. Any ideas thanks.

    • Like Felix said, the original battery grounding is a known issue. However, I like to ground to an engine bolt. Plus, any connector on a 30 year old bike has the potential to have corrosion issues. Inspect the ends pf the battery cables and the connectors at the r/r. Also, just buy a new battery. My 96 battery checked good at 3 different parts houses, but when I replaced it, all my problems went away.

    So, now that I have a new speedo drive & cable in this beast, I pushed it after church on the way home to see what it would do. Well the crappy thing is she wound out at 50 mph. Being a mechanic I didn't dare push it past 55 for fear of throwing a rod cause this motor was screaming for all she was worth. Its only got 5000 miles on it..

    I've had alot of 650's, but I've never had one that wouldn't comfortably run the freeway all day long. Why did Yamaha pull a clueless idiot stunt & not include a 6th gear cause she's seriously lacking ?...

    • If u have that big of an issue w it I believe a honda shadow kickstand will bolt on. Not that much of a difference. You will have to close your kickstand safety switch circuit. I bypassed it on mine.

    • If u lower it, it won't lean over as far either :)

    • Yeah I lowered mine and it sits straiter. If you want a simple fix, get some JB wield, mix the putty an inch thick and put it on the flat of the kickstand.. Let it dry, (10 min) you won't even notice it .. :)

    Anyone changed the rear tire to a bigger size? After doing some research, looks like a 170/70/17 would be perfect. But needs a wider wheel. This tire is very very close to the same diameter of the original.

    Strongly considering selling my 86. Have 2 other bikes and just not riding enough. Owned about a year and have put a lot of work into it. Stage 7, bored to 1400, custom painted tins, 2 windscreens, kerker 4-into-1, and other after market goodies. Spare trans included as 1st gear is rough. Didn't ever get around to fixing it. Could also use a carb sync. Too much else on my honey-do list. Will change oil before sale. Approx 21k miles. PM me if interested. Located about 50 miles west of Chicago.

    • Chris, look at costco, added a link. I just bought the 3 person towable on sale for 179

    • Thanks for the info. 2013 AR210. I've got a flat disk tube right now. Will hold two kids ok but it doesn't seem like they want to go just 2 at a time anymore. They always want to pile on. The only reason I like the tube is you can pull it up on the swim deck and get it out of the water to cruise around or when pulling a skier from the tower.

    • Chris, I bought the four person one last year and it was awesome! But kept deflating, called manufacturer and they didn't have any to replace it with so at the end of the season I took it back to costoc, got all my money back. U can't beat the price. I have a lay down tube, kids don't like I hat as much, they love the sitdown. And for small kids, great way to break them into boating fun. If you get one order and Inflator that has as long cord. It's heavy and and to lift it in and out to blow it up up and reblow it up, sucks. Have fun it's worth it. You won't find anything else that nice fir that price and returnable!

    So my rear fender fell off and got jammed in between the tire and the frame and got busted up beyond repair. And of course the taillight and license plate came off with the fender, although thankfully the were intact. So I tossed the fender and re-engineered a way to attach them without the fender. It was pretty tricky, but I managed it, and without buying any new parts. I'm happy with how it turned out. I actually never liked the look of the fender anyway and always intended to modify or replace it. And I like the way this looks.

    • Same thing happened to me at about 70 mph. I was able to dremel what was left and now have a bobbed look.

    • I'm with you. Never liked the way the stock fender and tail light look. But mine was changed before I bought it.

    • Oh, I shoulda mentioned: those cords wrapped around the grab bar are not part of the solution to the above problem! They're strapping a box on the pillion seat.

    Really silly question here but I was riding earlier in my subdivision. There was a little boy out on his bike and he wanted to ride around with me.... I had him peddle his bike waaaaay in front of me and we made a dozen laps around the park in my subdivision. He turned back to talk to me but I couldn't hear him. I saw him turn around and come at me so I braked and came to a full stop but just before I did I heard a pop. I shut off my bike and took of my helmet so I could hear him invite me to his house for cookies... I went to grab the clutch and realized the cable popped out of the little holder thing. I have 1.2 miles on the odometer. Yes 1.2 miles.

    2009 Vstar 250.

    Is this normal? Or is the cosmos trying to tell me not to ride:(

    I think I pulled a rookie move today and wondering how much damage I might have done. So, I was concerned about starting my bike this morning at 4:00am and waking my neighbors. I rolled down my street in neutral, when I got to the corner I started it while rolling, (choke on half). Put her in gear and pealed out of there. All was going well, I closed the choke a couple blocks away. About 10 mins. into my ride the bike started back firing, then stalled out and wouldn't restart. I let it cool for 10 mins., it started and I managed to sputter to my destination. I had it towed to the shop. Any idea's what might be the problem?

    Update. turned in my 13 fz6r on May 19th for 600 mile check up oil change — Yamaha FZ6R Owners

    Update: turned in my 13 fz6r on May 19th for 600 mile check up/oil change.informed brakes were installed incorrectly by yamaha. It's now Jun 6th. 3 weeks of me calling them. No calls from them to inform me on progress. Last Monday I call and they Informed me parts were in and it would be a few days to get it wrapped up. Called today ( 3 days later) and they haven't started on work and might be Monday. My thoughts: fuck Westfield Yamaha ( http://www.westfieldyamaha.com / ) they are putting my bike to the back of work because it's a warranty job and they aren't making any money off of me. Please stay away from this dealer/ service center. They do not deserve our good hard working money for there ass back words shop. They should have at the very least looked at bike before they sold it to ma and allowed me./an unexperienced new rider to go out on a bike I knew nothing. And they didn't either and just hope it all worked and I didn't kill myself with inoperable brake system. So in retrospective. Glad I'm an till alive no thanks to Westfield yamaha power sports in Westfield indiana.

    • Because it is a warranty job it should be at thew top of the list, Yamaha franchise have it in the agreement between them and the shop that all Yamaha and Yamaha warranty work must be first priority. Call them and tell them that if it isnt done in a day (should only be a days work max) you will call Yamaha, After all, if they assembled the bike they were responsible for the brakes being fitted wrong etc..... Go for it,,,, they will shit themselves

    • Put your bearings in the freezer, overnight. Don't pull them out, until ready to install.

      This will cause them to shrink, and allow easier install.

    • I'll put them in now and leave them there till the morning thanks Scott George

    • You can also put the link in the oven at 200' for fifteen min. Right before you are ready to install the bearings then when you are ready to pull the bearings out of the freezer the link out if the oven they should drop right in. Just make sure the link is clean no grease before you put it in the oven

    Not that anyone asked......but here's how I mounted the, "Screaming Banshee" horn. Easy to buy, not so easy to find a place & bracket to mount to. I Used a piece of 1" flatbar, drilled holes in each end, bent it in a vice and well that's it.

    If you're looking for a louder horn, I would suggest you look at the Banshee. Pretty interesting story behind the company, crowd_funded. I get .15 seconds of regular horn, and then the air horn kicks in.

    I've only used it once and the person that pulled out in front of me held it tight to the left and was in on-coming traffic lane. I think he thought he was about to be hit by a truck.

    Someone help — Yamaha V-Star riders

    Someone help!!!

    When I bought my bike of the guy. I had noticed that the speedometer console vibrated. So i took it off and noticed that the back bolt lifted up and down and it's Cuz of the bushing that it screws into lifts up and down in the bracket that hold it in place and also it spins if u try to tighten the bolt back up. Is the rubber bushing supposed to be glued to the tank or something.?? Someone Plz help.

    And I also noticed that the gas cap vibrated also. And I took the cap off and the rubber gasket doesn't seal from the tank to the bottom of the cap it's to thin. Where could I get a new one. Or what could I do ??

    Saw the new 2015 bolt line up and am not impressed with the new color schemes.

    • I like the black one with the red around the top. Not bad. The others are pretty lame

    • Can't beat that

    • Sure can't. That looks pretty slick

      But when it comes to bein' loved, she's first

      That's how I know

    • Flush Mounts that's it nothing else!

    • 90 degree valve stems will not clear either. I always just pulled a valve stem backwards to the inside of the wheel then siliconed the hole.

    • Just get the fricken flysh mounts already, cheap n easy.. I got a set.. if you cant get or find em online, you can get em or order them at almost any half decent tire store or automotive shop..

    What a morning. I went to the Longview VA Clinic to have bloodwork done — Yamaha V-Star riders

    What a morning! I went to the Longview VA Clinic to have bloodwork done. While coming back I kept my Guardian Angel overemployed!

    I rode north on 259 near fm 1844 when a cager (specifically a small black car) pulled out on me. He came from a side road into traffic (cutting through the lane in order to make a left turn) and stopped in my lane leaving me with no more than fifteen feet to avoid the collision. Unfortunately, the car next to me slowed down too (I assume they were trying to give me room to swerve but they remained right next to me).

    My bike nearly spun out but I kept it under control. Fortunately, the rear tire is brand new (although no longer in mint condition due to the rubber I left in the road while skidding). Had I T-Boned him I would have hit the drivers side door and we would have both likely died.

    I don't have much more to say, other than you should always assume cagers are out to kill you. This one nearly got me!

    • U can always change bars to

    • Its a round slide carb so making that bend is the real issue.

    • U can get one tht u keep the thumb push throttle but when u twist it it pushes the throttle
