You need to pop the panel above the headlights off. That will expose the remaining screws that hold the windscreen on. You need to start at the top and pop it up...then push forward and remember to remove the two push pins under the front panel by the headlights first. It will just pop off.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for the help, rcroller. I don't think I would have figured it out otherwise.

T-max variator tool

Anybody here knows where we can buy a variator tool or others called it variator holding tool ? This little tool is important in changing rollers & belt to make the job easier.

Well as I mentioned a few posts ago I was looking to check out a Tmax. Called my local Yamaha dealer and guess what...he had a Tmax on the floor.

I got down there before closing and checked it out. Way cool looking for sure! Then I sat on it or should I say I tried sitting on it. As far as actually sitting on the thing in a riding position...that works fine. Nice leg room and the angle of my legs suits my crapped hip. But its too wide and I could not get my right foot down to the ground with my left foot already on the ground.

Major bummer as I was really looking forward to the Tmax being an option for me. This hip thing is starting to really get me down. Next stop will be at my Euro bike shop about an hour from home. They have the Vespa-Piaggio line of scooters. I'll check a MP3-500. I'm hearing that they are somewhat cramped so I don't know how that will work. At least I don't have to put a foot down at a stop.

How tall are you? I'm 5'10" 5'11", and am wondering if I'll fit okay on it.

Kind of a stupid question, but how exactly do you go about looking for a bike at a dealer? Do they let you test ride one, especially when you only have a permit?

If I show up in riding gear, will I see the dealer's eyes turn into dollar signs? hehe

The test ride

Generally Dealers require a motorcycle endorsment on your license before the let you test ride a bike. some have ride locations on lot or nearby streets and they will have someone go with you. dealers are concerned mostly about an inexperienced ride dropping the bike because that is very costly.

foot down

There is a big difference in the height of the seat when it is off it's center stand. when I tried a Silverwing in the dealership it was on it's stand the salesman has me sit on the machine when it was just on it's wheels it was fine and has proved to be fine since after 6000 miles. ask the dealer to place the scoot on it's side stand get on straighten it up and you will be suprised how nice it feel. I'm 5'8"

So I'm probably not going to be able to test ride the bike.

I think I'm stuck. Can't get an endorsement without a bike. Not to keen, on getting a vehicle that I haven't got to test ride. Then again, I haven't heard any complaints about the tmax

Edit: How do you drop a bike? Check out this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Q2MSApP_I0 . In the reflection it looks like he's holding the camera with one hand. Yet he doesn't drop the bike

Fender eliminator

Has anyone bought one of those fender eliminator kits from Europe? I am curious to know how they fit with a U.S. tag since the dimensions of our tag is smaller then theirs.
Thanks,
Aqua

you mean this?

The undertray is body coloured, has an aluminium plater to attach reg plate, i had to do a new tag plate and get it re drilled to fit the spacing on the bracket that comes with it, or maybe you can use your original plate and drill new holes in the bracket, depends on how far holes in tag are apart from each other if that makes sense!
