We all know that we just cannot leave these bikes alone. This thread will let you chronicle your daily tinkering and little bits and bobs that you put on, take off, fix, and improve.
Will we be graced with Peggy's presence on the site? Vern, I am starting to think that she is just an apparition or a rouse so that you can slip into some tighter leathers and get into the women's class...Obviously no mods yet, bike is ordered, but if it comes with the BT023's on it like it looks like, they will probably be the first thing to go.....gotta have something a bit more sticky..........Peggy corners low!
Dont ever buy oil from dealer first of all their oil are the lowest class of oil. I get my oil from amazon or walmart actually carry mobil 1 full synthetic for like $10 a quart. And get the kn&n filter for $10 total full oil change for under $50 with good oil and great filtertoday i got ripped off my dealer he charged my $65.96 for 3 quarts of yamalube, a filter and wax chain lube?
I changed my oil and lubed my chain , now i got to find a cheap place to by oil and filters.
Mobil 1 makes a motor cycle oil, and that dealer are stupid the kn&n filter is 10 times better and it's a perfect fit kn204 or kn303 they fit our bike perfectly. You can also use motul oils. The yamaha oil is crap is like generic oil you buy at a gas station loldealer told me mobil 1 is not a motorcycle oil , told me don't buy car oil for a motorcycle because of the clutch it will make it slip. also Yamaha filter have a special valve in them only use yamaha filters?

Lol i do push my bike to the limit lol not all the times but once in a while and might even be taking this bike to the track lol once i fully break it in and get news tires for it these mine come with bt023 they are just ok tires but i guess in cali is fine we dont get rain much lol.The full synthetics are too slippery for motos due to the friction that is needed for the wet clutch. Stick to the dedicated motorcycle oils. I just popped into my local Whatever Autoparts store and picked up the best looking motorcycle oil that they had. I don't imagine that you are going to be pushing your bike to the limits on the street, so you don't need the fanciest of the fancy oil.*
