Okay Dallara, you realize I have been on the road for over a month :)
You mention lips down under too many times, halfway through your post I wasn't thinking about bikes anymore

Hell I haven't been on the road at all, just sitting at work, and even I was fantasizing once he started mention the female lips and booties and such.

Damn, Goldie!

You've been gone up to those Artic reaches for too, too long...

Earlier when you had been saying you had "blown a seal" I thought you meant your forks were leaking... Now I'm not so sure what you meant!!!

Get thyself back to civilization, and women, *SOON*!!!

Well, if you are getting seals for your forks it is rather imperative to check them to make sure they are the correct diameter so they fit tightly...

Hell, I often check their size over and over and over and over...

That was funny

I can't wait....

By the way, here's a picture of the crap you encounter in Alaska, look at the forks

You let that shit dry and the next day it's like cement and then it goes up the seals




Hey, I tried to wash them

I've got to say Yamaha priced the new cover a lot cheaper than I would have expected, and at least ONE part of my bike looks brand new again

Damn, Dave.....I would have GIVEN you my plastic thingy........

I know this is a 2012 thread but....
I did read some(most) of the 876 pages, but couldn't find info I am after.
Have Yamaha actually produced any more bikes other than the original 09/10 production run?
ie is there actually a 2012 manufactured bike? if so any changes? or are they waiting on a 800/900?
is there a 2013 model coming?
I'm in Australia and several of the originals seem to be coming up for 2nd had sale, but no new bikes seem
to be listed. Are there any?

Thx in advance for any info.

All 2010 models AFAIK. Still selling them. Not much has changed though, except the WorldCrosser Kit coming out and a new ECU at some point for some countries.

It's a 2012 thread because the Americans got their slower poverty pack models late.

Australia gets the upmarket fastest ones.

Ok thanks for quick reply.
Bikesales hasn't listed a new one for a while now. And my local yam dealer hasn't had one in stock either.
When I last checked (end 2011) I was told new model coming....but no news so far.
Do you know if dealers can still order them (2010 build) in from Yamaha?
