We'll know soon though.


I thought it was 5-10 more HP, but I'd only glanced at the new one's numbers.

According to Yamaha's website it has "stronger and smoother acceleration". Hopefully, they tweaked the ECU and improved the fueling.

And if they did tweak the ECU similar to the reflashed ones that many of us love, it may only have 2 HP more on top, where we don't run much, but will have lots more in the low to midrange, where we run most of the time.

Nick cool to deal with. Passed on a YA-013 for just 939. delivered! Still, think I made the right choice. Thanks to you guys for the opinions.

I hated mine and no it doesn't stay in place. I really didn't mind the stock setup but bought one just to try the adjustability and I liked the bar to mount your GPS. My first day in the woods I look down and my windshield is flapping around. The stock hardware sucks. The good folks at Touratech recommended I put a regular nut and screw on there so I could tighten it down better. So much for the adjustability. I went to Home Depot and bought some rubber and plastic washers and sandwiched them in the middle and didn't have any further problems. That said I still never loved it.

I like mine, but I have had to crank the heck out of the 4 thumb knobs to make it stay in place and I never move it.

I've got 5k miles on mine, love it. I have not had any problems with the knurled knobs, but many others have and just replace them or use sealing washers. My GPS hasn't budged since I mounted it, but I think a key factor is that I'm using a Gadget Guy bracket, which is very small, not much leverage, not much weight. Full writeup on the setup at:

You could wait a couple of months and get the 2014 one and screen from Yamaha. The mounting bracket is the same part number so it should all fit.

It would also give you the opportunity of looking at one in the flesh when they turn up in the showrooms.

Eek Help Save Texas World Speedway!!!

~


Hey, Guys!

Please take a look at this link, read it carefully, and then *PLEASE* sign the petition!!!


http://soonerbillz.com/SaveTWS/


Texas World Speedway in College Station, TX is one of the most legendary tracks in all the USA, with many a record set there, and is still the home of WERA motorcycle road racing, SCCA sports car racing, CVAR vintage auto racing, and tons of other motorsports events. It really is worth saving. After all, who needs another housing development? Especially when there are literally thousands upon thousands of clear acreage in the area.

I'm reaching out to all of you out there who love motorsports, whether you've ever been to Texas World Speedway or not. We're already losing enough race tracks all over the country. Please help do all you can to help us save one of the best!

Thank you!


Dallara
