tmax issues.......

so last weekend i was on my "stella" and was with a friend visiting some openhouses. lots of traffic and a lot of start and go got my temprature needle 2 millimeters higher than the half way mark. (ive never seen it go abouve the half way mark). the cooling fan comes on and im stuck in traffic so i killed the motor, waited 5 minutes till i could move ahead and tried strating it....... suddenly i hear this multiple clicking sound..... all the meters start jumping and the bike seems dead...... :(

i pushed my bike to the side and waited 5 minutes and tried again and it started.... i figured maybe it got too hot.....

today i rode into manhattan and had to wait 20 minurtes to park near my office..... the bike had the fan on but the engine off..... it cooled off for the 20 minutes that i waited...... street cleaning gets done while i wait and then i start the bike to park it. once parked i thought id move it in a bit so i started it again.... and wham........ same problem...

anybody experienced this. My "stella is parked on the street now and i have not been able to start it.... any suggestions?

also i got a letter from yamaha regarding Y.E.S (yamaha extended warranty) has anyone tried this out.... its abt $280 for 2 years.....
it does not mention what all it covers.... is it like the factory warranty.... i see stuff abt free towing and no deductable if you breakdown.... but what abt the regular warranty. does this extended warranty cover the bike the same way? have to go to the mechanic in abt 5 hours so if someone can help me with some info it would be great.....

No, not the one that comes with...it's a shorter tinted sport shield (same one as in Psolk's post) that is still OEM Yamaha but an option to the clear stock shield. You can also see it in my Avatar.

Here's a link to where I got mine:

zero war, try this:

There are several threads in this forum that may be helpful...this was just the most recent one concerning the problem. Also threads on the YES program which most T-Maxers have passed on as it doesn't actually cover much when you study the fine print. Good Luck!

Sorry, guys, what took so long to respond. I had one more trip to the peninsula of Crimea, Ukraine. Sun, Black Sea, 14 days, 3600 km, full of fun!

to fohtrotguy: I am short too, so it was a problem with the choice of shoes, but it decided when I bought the boots of Italian company Newrock

to TheReaper!: I bought my Max in the last year about 14 thousand USD, but it was already 1 year with a run 7 thousand km. Now the new Max, 2010., Cost about 16 thousand USD

Can someone advise where I can purchase the mirror block off plates for the Yamaha T-Max scooter? I tried sending an Email to a website that listed them but the Email came back as undeliverable.

Charging the battery

Is there a way to remove the battery without the entire front panel ?

LOL I am tempted to saw it , that's the biggest pain in the B.... to change a battery. I sow the guy on youtube he removed eveything in the front.
I guess it will be worth installing battery charging leads.

That's the first thing you want to do (leads) , and keep that battery charged . The cost of a new battery is bad enough , installing it just puts salt in the wounds . The one and only thing I liked about the Silverwing is , that the battery was under the seat and easy to get to . The Tmax is a great scooter but a big GIANT pain in the ass gettin to any thing .

Just changed my battery two days ago and agree it's a bit of a PIA but not really all that bad once you accept the fact that you have to remove the mirrors, windscreen, and front tupperware to get to it. It took me about 30 minutes and now I should be set for another two years...since I ride pretty much every day I don't worry about a battery tender but if I didn't I'd definitely install one. The replacement gel battery runs about $100 so not cheap. I'm pretty sure mine died prematurely due to the heat where I live.
