My starter motor positive terminal seal gave up and the brush plate and brushes is now very corroded and need replacing. Trying to find a replacement without paying a fortune for the original Yamaha parts as it is a standard Mitsuba SM-13 starter...Any advice on where to buy a rebuild kit, preferably in EU? Some I've found on eBay have a right and left note with them, what direction the BT starter should spin? Also FYI I've learned that by removing the back plate you find the model number of your starter as SM-13 is only the series and there are many different models for different motors... mine on my 2002 BT was: 13503 as you can see from the photo...

    Yo Bulldoggers. I wondered what everyone else's thoughts were on cans? I've bought a bulldog with stock cans and it sounds OK. but I want it to sound better. I see that Fuel are popular as are Scorpion and others. The only brand I have actually heard up close is MTC, which sounded really good but I've not seen anyone else using them. Those of you who have bought aftermarket cans for your Bulldogs, who I think are many, how did you decide on which cans to buy......I cant deny that cost is an issue for me but I wouldnt want that to be the only criteria.... unless of course that's the only way of deciding. Do any of them actually give a noticeable power increase?...Discuss please

      Hi guys — Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog

      Hi guys.

      I'm having a problem with the throttle on my 2003 Bulldog. It is smooth in operation, but has gone very tight/stiff. The throttle cables have been well lubed but the problem still persists.

      Has anyone else come across this??

      Is this fix a very technical one, as I have limited mechanical knowledge and facilities.

      Many thanks.

            I've got an issue with my 2002 Bulldog after doing the basic tuning of carb jets and the TDM air intake (at the same time I also replaced the old carb intake rubbers). Now to the issue: When the engine is cold it runs poorly when accelerating, almost like a misfire or like it is getting poor mixture. BUT when its warm it runs great. Bike is in the winter garage right now so have not yet had time to investigate properly but given that it works well when warm I'm guessing there is a small air leak somewhere that "closes up" and goes away when the engine is warm? Any suggestions or anyone who has had similar issues?

                  Q for carb gurus — Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog

                  Q for carb gurus:

                  Struggling with a problem - on quick throttle rev, there is engine power loss (like there not enough fuel), while on normal and slow rev all is ok, idle speed is ok. Carbs sync had been done and all other kind of checks.

                  How BT's carbs operates without accelerator pump?

                  While searching an answer, got the idea, that other moto carbs has accelerator pump that aiming "quick rev" action, when fuel can not come in such quick manner, fuel acceleration pump helps it. Just interesting, how BT's carb perform this?

                  Anyone for a help for my main problem?

                    Clubman or Jota handlebars for the Bulldog. Need help — Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog

                    Clubman or Jota handlebars for the Bulldog? Need help.

                    I need to decide between the two, as I am looking for a more lean-forward position. I have a '03 Bulldog with original risers and bars.

                    Note that dragbars etc will not suit me. It has to drop more than that.

                    Some options I have:

                    1. Raask Jota bars: I like the fact that they are adjustable. Can't decide if I like the looks. Cost about 100 Euro.

                    2. Buell clubman bars. They are beautiful, not very easy to find and a bit expensive for second hand! But will not fit 22mm risers (they are 28.5mm in the center), need to buy adapters, or new risers, and they probably need extra lengthening. Cost about 200-250 euro with new risers/adapters. Thanks to Stefan Pickert for all the info.

                    3. Tommaselli adjustable bars are also an option about 180 euros. Not too keen.

                    4. Other clubman bars. I can find 22mm steel clubmans for about 60-70 Euros shipped.

                    Any advice?

                        Hope someone can help me to get an idea of my problem.

                        When I accelerate there is a power loose at beginning to about 3 RPM, after that power increasing to normal and all works ok.

                        What can cause that, maybe someone had same issue out there?

                        It is clear that it looses power because of too much air - but can not find where it comes from. There should be another reason of such behavior, but I have no idea.

                        Other idea is that carb air valves opens too much at beginning - but is there any adjustment of that? When I disassembled I not touched valves, and carbs are syncked and vacuum is ok.

                        Other idea is that fuel leaks somewhere, but in this case why after 3K RPM throttle works good as supposed.

                        Recently I cleaned my carbs disassembling them, replaced parts with standard kit. All is set back,all works fine, idle speed, starting works like a charm.

                        I verified carb. fuel level, fuel hoses, pump, new air filter, new fuel filter, engine valve clearance, throttle sensor (on carb), carbs. syncked (vacuum is ok)...

                        I am out of any ideas, any idea is much appreciated.

                          Need help!!!

                          Hi guys, I need a good help to clarify a question how to correctly install back the rotor.

                          When I took it off I followed the manual as per first image

                          "Align the "T" mark (a) with the stationary point-er (b) on the crankcase cover (left) when the

                          rear piston is at TDC on the compression

                          stroke."

                          Now, when I want to install it back, manual says that

                          "Align the punch mark (a) on the timing drive gear

                          (2) the punch mark (b) on the timing chain drive

                          gear sprocket and the key position (c) as shown."

                          But when I removed the rotor - those marks had not been aligned as it states.

                          So per my image point A and C are correct - when I removed the rotor and gears had been in this positions as shown in black circle.

                          (I marked the teeth and holes with red/blue).

                          But points F and B are not aligned, while installing the rotor requires them to be aligned together with point A.

                          Sorry if this is confusing, but I am confused as well and don't know what to do next, how correctly to install it.

                                Some advises to those who afraid to do it yourself - just dont be. The only thing you need is to follow the manual and videos to know how it can be done.

                                Also you will need a special removal tool. I had no luck with handmade one (smaller one on image), all applied force had been bending the bolts and rotor won't came out.

                                Instead, with a more serious puller, I took off the rotor in a second, just by applying the force by hand.

                                It is possible only when the main screw has such a big thread.

Have been lusting after Vmax for a long time, but recently been looking at bulldog. Read some reviews on MCN which weren't exactly glowing, especially on low bhp (64 ?). Thought it would be better to come on here and ask people who actually ride bulldogs. Looking to buy in sept and from what i can see on ebay you get alot of bike for not bank breaking budget.....so convince me guys :)

                                        Hello my fellow Bulldogists! I'm planning to go on to a "Iron Butt Ride" with my Bulldog on Saturday. That's called Saddle Sore 1000, it means that you have to ride 1000 miles (1609 km) in 24 hours. You can check more about this from www.ironbutt.com if you want.

                                        Do you have any tips for me? Has anyone did this on a Bulldog before? What do you think about tyre pressures? Is the normal 2,5 and 2,7 bar okay? The usual checkings of oil level etc. are of course things to be checked but any advice are welcomed. :)

                                          Hi guys ... please anyone could help me?

                                          My bike with 15.000 km ... in the morning when the engine is cold ... often ... takes 2 or 3 times to start .... and hear a metallic noise ....

                                          What do you think? Riding , is regular but when I stop, and start again , it is very difficult to find the perfect choke level ... and restarts in a couple of times. Never done!!

                                            Hey Bulldog lovers, If any of you are planning to travel around the Uk, and ride past London, don't forget to visit the legendary bikers' place, ACE CAFE (London) It would be nice to see more Bulldogs over there :) If you are planning to come or in the area, shoot me a message and we'll meet up for coffee (I live a 15 min ride from ACE)

                                              Starter Problem — Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog

                                              Starter Problem???

                                              Hi everyone, I have my bulldog for a few weeks now and I am wondering about the starter clutch issue. Today I noticed some difficulty for the bike starting after I got to work, I notice there is a metallic sound when the starter button is pushed and the engine turns. Since I bought it I am very careful of not touching the throttle during startup (but I can't say that about the previous owner). The bike has about 22.000Km. Here the weather is warm and the bike started fine in the morning and previous days. I had a number of bikes before that had some difficulty to start maybe when cold, but I am worried about the Bulldog with all these posts about starter clutch failure.

                                              1. Are there any signs of the failure before hand? Does this metallic sound have anything to do with it? (I can post a video because it is not easy to explain in words) Shall I visit the mechanic straight away, just in case the bike fails to start completely?

                                              2. I heard the cost is very high for original Yamaha parts, but there are some good aftermarket replacement parts. Please suggest any that can be ordered (better to be in Europe).

                                              Cheers.

                                                Its time for me to get a new rear wheel for my bulldog, and will change front wheel at the same time, so do anyone have any recommendations for a brand which last fairly long and has a fairly good price? :P especially from you swedish members since i will most likely purchase it from däckonline.se

                                                Thank you for the help :)

                                                  Quite some time (a year or so) ago, I told you that I wanted to shorten the back of my Bulldog. Due to a lack of time I haven't really been able to do very much, but here's two photos to give you an impression...

                                                  I'm still doubting what to do with the end part of the frame. Should I cut it off or leave it on, so I can always change the bike back to it's original state. And if I'd cut it off, can I create a solution to easily reconnect the cut off piece, to change the bike to an almost-original-but-with-a-cut-off-piece state.

                                                  All your comments and ideas are more than welcome!

                                                    I got my bulldog last August, this is the first bike I brought after around a 25 year lay off, I have had some good rides on it and I'm really looking forward to the warmer weather so I can take it for some longer rides, but as this is the only bike I've been on I haven't compared it to anything else. For the one's that have experience on different bikes, why have you settled with the bt bulldog?

                                                      what would you choose for front pads — Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog

                                                      what would you choose for front pads?

                                                      The secret of safe braking has a lot to do with pads:

                                                      Brembo Motorcycle Brakepads

                                                      SC - Professional Race and Road Front

                                                      Sintered compound for race, track-day and road use, with a particularly high friction coefficient when both cold and hot. As this material stays very stable in all temperature conditions and, specifically, has a strong friction coefficient when cold, this race material is also particularly suitable for the highest-performance road use (which most other race pads are not, due to them requiring a warm-up period).

                                                      Provides a particularly high coefficient of friction for an excellent initial bite when cold, with superb fade resistance and feel/modulation when hot, meaning they work extremely well in both wet and dry conditions

                                                      Special and unique initial swept-surface finish layer, to enable rapid bedding-in; i.e. no laborious disc pre-cleaning required.

                                                      SA - High Performance Road Front

                                                      A sintered compound intended specifically for front brakes, typified by particularly consistent efficiency and friction under all operating conditions. An ideal and superior alternative to OE pads.

                                                      Excellent for all road bikes and sportsbikes

                                                      This compound features a good initial coefficient of friction for an instant cold bite, with an excellent and very consistent feel whether cold, warm or fully hot

                                                      Works well in both wet and dry conditions

                                                      Tested by HPS and recommended for both normalriding and fast road use

                                                      SP - All Purpose Rear

                                                      A sintered compound intended specifically for rear brakes, stable in all normal operating conditions (between 0.55 Mu/COF cold to 0.56 hot).

                                                      Multi-use rear compound for all road bikes and sportsbikes

                                                      Has an excellent initial coefficient of friction for immediate braking, with a very consistent feel, at all disc temperatures

                                                      brembo sp motorcycle rear pads

                                                      RC - Professional Race-only Front

                                                      A true racing pad, suitable for any kind of competition on the racetrack. With highest friction coefficient in this range and – more especially – exceptional stability at high temperatures (between cold 0.70 Mu/COF to warm/hot 0.81/79), this compound gives truly constant braking performance lap after lap, from grid to flag, after initial warm-up.

                                                          I will go on a two days trip soon, on which I would like to take some extra luggage. Thought a tank bag would be the best way for me.

                                                          Please name brand and type, eventually price, the way it is mounted on the tank (with pros and cons of the mounting system) and some pros and cons of the bag itself.

                                                            Was happy to start assemble back the carbs today and spotted something interesting, the nozzles are bended on one end. And we can see same for both nozzles.

                                                            Seems this nozzles are moving under air pressure, depending on main jet adjustment. It has a hard work imagine. Nozzle and main jet holder are acting like hammer and anvil...and here ia the result.

                                                            Anyway dont have time to order new nozzle and to wait weeks for delivery, but now you all know what part you have to replace in your carbs when have a chance ))

                                                              I would like to change my Bulldog Mirrors (as I am not interested of seeing my elbows but well what is behind me).

                                                              So could you please post a picture of your mirrors (+ the brand and model if possible) and give your appreciation about it. I don't need your appreciation on the look it gives to the Bulldog but well on the possibility to see behind.

                                                              Thanks a lot to all of you.

                                                                Tested a 1080p sportscam (SJ4000, $50 promotion/deal, gopro lookalike) while riding the bulldog. I think the quality is quite good. During this 2,5 hour ride a cyclist didnt see me coming (I spotted him from a far already, see 01:14), a car crossed the road from the other direction (!) right in front of me while I was going to speed up, one car unexpectedly made a u-turn shortly after taking a curve and blocked the road, road kill i almost didnt spot in time (slippery), etc. I think I will make it a habit to ride with the cam on so I have proof that the other guy made the mistake. Riding a bike is great fun, but also involves greater risk than driving a car. Be careful out there. Have a nice weekend

I am thinking abt this design or similiar like this. What do you think ? Too much change or not ?

I was looking for shade visor for my agv helmet, there were none because my helmet was over 6 yrs old. The guy reminded me that the inner padding hardens over the years and its protective shielding deteriorates as a result. I heard every 4-5 years a new helmet is advisable. I bought a new Nolan helmet with a clear and shade visor build-in. Nice slim design which makes my already big XL helmet head a bit more esthetically pleasing. Letting the dog out in 5m, grrreat weather again :-P

For example if I can get anything similar to such results in the video, I will be happy for that.

                                                                          But anyone have some experience?... cause I no ))

                                                                            Hi, I need some help. When I bought my 2003 bulldog the previous owner had fitted some silly high rise bars which I hate. I read about the 2005 revisions to a slightly flatter bar and riser combination and so I ordered those in the hope of getting a more forward biased position. Unfortunately, Yamaha delivered the bar but said the risers are no longer available. I now find the clamp area of the 2005 bar is 28mm and the existing 2003 risers only accept a 22mm bar! I'm trying to find an alternative pair of risers. Any suggestions?

                                                                              Hi guys, have been looking to the history of this forum regard to TYRES. But not found any info if someone used non-standart tyres (per specs), and if someone can give a good overview/personal opinion/real results of his/her experience of using such tyres. All are welcome to do this :D

                                                                                Hi everybody.

                                                                                I have a question for all of you Bull addicts ;-)

                                                                                I have bought my Bull with rear shockabsorber to -4.5 cm. This was too low for me so I have bought 2 new metal pieces to replace the 140mm ones so that my Bulldog is now again at her original height.

                                                                                But now I find that on the side stand, the bike leans too much.

                                                                                Do you have any suggestion to solve this? Perhaps changing the side stand by a longer one from another Yamaha bike?

                                                                                On top of this I foresee to higher it even more (3cm conpare to origin). So for sure with the actual side stand, this will not work.

                                                                                Thanks for your help.

                                                                                %d comments

                                                                                  Hello my fellow Bulldogists!

                                                                                  I had to put my Bulldog to hibernation for the winter today. :( I am ashamed to admit that I only got around 2000km this whole season. That's due to my work, studying and especially because me and my wife bought a house and started a business in this summer. Plus some renovations in our new home equals very little time for my Bulldog.

                                                                                  So we started a hotel/restaurant/catering kind of business in Haapavesi, Finland. We also have two saunas and two pools/hot tubs for customers and we also offer recretional days for companies, schools etc. which can include for example archery and throwing a kettlebell. :)

                                                                                  So what I'm saying here is that if you're some day traveling trough Finland or otherwise are in the neightbourhood you all are more than welcome to visit us, accommodate a night or a few, use a sauna, have a good dinner etc. :) Here's our website www.villakorkatti.fi and www.facebook.com/villakorkatti if you got interested. Unfortunately the sites are only in Finnish for now but hopefully you get something out of it. :)
