We have ignition!

Massive thank yous to What Broke Now and MoBill for sending me their working pumps, What Broke Now's arrived first and is my WRX's new heart. RUFJeep also offered up his broken pumps frame, thank you as well.

This is such a wonderful community and I'm proud to be associated with you guys.

Removing stock turn signals. Someone know what torque settings to use when re-tightening those top fork clamps? Thanks.

I'm surprised this continues to come up as a good solution. Just buy the 'damn service manual,' and use it. Or, if you don't want to spend $70 once on a service manual, take it to a mechanic and pay $70/hour.

CO mode vs programmer, revisited

Took a tuning ride yesterday and played with CO mode and the FMF programmer settings. I set the programmer's fueling options where everyone else basically does (3 5 1 8 4 4) and left my CO mode at its adjusted setting. It ran horribly off idle, but fantastically everywhere else. Using the programmer really smoothed out the mid range and top end. I adjusted the CO mode back from +12 to +2 (still up from its stock -2 setting) and it ran immediately better at throttle tip in.

I'm surprised that you are surprised. Far too many shops don't have a decent service department and I for one like having a manual on a thumb drive in case it's needed by whoever is working on the bike. Break down away from a Yamaha dealer and see if the local mechanic appreciates the info.

Of course I could be wrong.......

You're arguing that a service manual is useful when working on the bike? No disagreement there.

Not that I think I'll ever change anyone's mind by trying to lay out a rational argument on the interwebs, but here goes a good waste of heartbeats...

The typical scenario I see played out here is: noob posts "I don't have the specs. on whatever. Someone eventually posts a reply which involves going against the explicit rules of the nice guy who hosts this site, and, without getting too far into the mine field that is copyright law, is most likely aiding and abetting the noob to do something illegal.

I put a high value on personal responsibility, and for me the most responsible solution is to just buy, and use, the damn service manual (note; 'damn service manual' is a registered trademark, c. 2011 by HWD).

And, I actually like using the paper manual...

'nuff said

I just happened to look a couple of days ago, so I don't know how long it's been posted (hadn't seen it here yet)..... Sargent finally set a price for their WR seat. $350

I do agree with you on not violating the forum rules and posting a link to copyrighted material. I just removed a whole this side that side argument as it was long and nobody on either side is going to change their opinion.

I suppose the rule issue could be argued as the link is to another forum. The material on that forum is subject that forums rules, not this forums. Perhaps a less direct link could even offset that more.

I will however say that after purchasing my R used I tried to obtain a service and owners manual. Dealership said they couldn't get them. I tried for a little over a week and they told me they were discontinued and they didn't expect to be able to get them again. I made the effort to do it the right way but was turned away. I'm not paying someone for an illegal copy so I turn to free sources.

Wow. Sounds like you need to find a new dealer. You can order both, in stock, directly from the Yamaha USA website. Can't give you a link to the specific page (they're using some cruddy javascript system) but here's the link where you put in year and model.

http://www.yamahapubs.com/index.do?pg=search&category=3

(I get a 10% commission from Yamaha Japan for every 'damn service manual' sold.)

Thanks for the link. I have wanted a hard copy so I may pick one up even though I already have it. Unfortunately the dealer is kind of terrible but they are the only option for Kawi and Yamaha within something like 90 minutes. There used to be a Kawi place down the road but they closed up very shortly after I bought a bike from them.

Give an out of state dealer a shot. There are some really good ones who can actually handle putting the correct parts in a box and shipping it to the correct address .

My local dealer--Mach 1 Motorsports--is one of the best. They'd love your business. Carl and Lee and newguy Brandon will do a great job for you.

Sounds like you're dealing with a rookie, or at least somebody who doesn't know how to order Yamaha Owner's Manuals and Service Manuals.

Just tell the guy that he doesn't order a Yamaha manual through the Yamaha parts warehouses like he would a clutch plate.
Tell him it's done through Crestec, the place that actually prints and distributes the manuals for Yamaha.
