    beware LED instrument bulbs.

    Hi, my last post had me pondering on the verge of pulling out my gas tank to fix the permenantly on reserve fuel light and switch, HOWEVER!, I read a thread on here saying that the fuel res light is part of the circuit, so I thought about it and wondered if the voltage difference using led...

    Make your own instrument face-plate

    Custom DIY face-plates are pretty simple to make. The only pain in the butt is deciding what goes where, as we all have different ideas of what we would like.

    No headlight, no instrument lights?

    I walked out of a friend's house last night, got on the bike, started her up and-hey presto, no headlight and no instrument lights. I still had running lights, tail light, turn signals and brake lights. All fuses are fine, no loose connections I could find. Is this the symptom of a sticky...

    Yamaha Instrument Cowl Not available for quite awhile.

    If you have one you better take care of it. I just spent the mourning trying to find one and Nobody that I have found has one in stock. Gary McCoy informed me today that Yamaha has decided to stop making them. But due to the volume of orders they are outsourcing them to someone else. And...

    Anybody know of a source for these panel lenses without buying a whole Instrument Assembly from eBay? I tried several Yamaha OEM parts sources and the best I can source there is the bulbs. I Googled many different queries and I can't locate anything.
