I got some help from Sean Morley on identifying the early (1985-1989) and late (1990+) model wire harnesses.
Here are a couple of pics.
The early harness has a white 6-pin connector for the ignition pick-up, but the connector only has 5 wires in it. The early harness also has a large white...
I've blown the unit, moisture inside it. Bur when I removed it it is the yellow sticker 85-89
Now I'm confused as the bike is a 1998 so it should be the newer icu in.
It looks like it's a spare.
My question is should the old Cdi run in a 1998 bike but make it run a bit rough? Or is my...
Noticed my clutch slipping recently when I really get on it. It's intermittent...which seems odd.
Bike only has 6,500 miles on it. Also, the clutch doesn't engage until the lever is almost completely released. Not sure if these issues are related...or if I just need a new clutch. Anyone seen...
A friend of the family has listed this for us. If you would rather deal with me feel free to call / text / email
Thanx for looking!

The hex heads on both my fork cap bolts were rounded off and a socket would just spin. I had to drill and hacksaw them out! What a PIA!
The shrader valves are ok but the cap bolt/plugs are shot. Does anyone have a pair of these for sale?
Took the Max out last Sunday when it got up to a balmy 38 degrees and the roads were (mostly) dry. Took my new Hero HD camera along, mounted to the airbox lid to give an "over the handlebars" point of view.
Unfortunately due to size limits on photobucket, I can't really upload a HD version, it...
Iv got a few questions.
My 85 with late model front end needs brake pads. Can someone explain the difference between ebc hh and organic, stock pads please.
I dont want more braking power (long story), but Im not sure what pads are installed now.
What year did Yamaha upgrade the front...

I am hoping someone out there has a late model or R1 r/r they need to get rid off. Mine is only putting out about 6 volts and my last one, aftermarket, fried my TCI and cooked my battery at 19.5 volts. :bang head:
Help Please, Thanks in advance
Cheap....works very well for me. No over heating like early model R/R.
Am I Crazy???
Been watching the CC (Cutlery Corner) late night for years. Actually got addicted when they had segments on HSN a few years back. They are a Frost affiliate and sell things across several venues.
Bought a few dealer specials for resale, but still have all the knives (over...
Here are some pics of Hayabusa calipers, R1 rotors, and Sean Morley adapters on a 85 Vmax. It sucks that one of the rotors I got is warped though. Now I have to take everything back off and get some more rotors.:bang head:
Need new ones for my bike as some of you know and hoping to get ones without the cloth wrapping so if anyone has a set or knows someone that does selling them at a decent price please let me know.
