it's a practise thing....
it is easy but never the first few times...
Yamalube is the same oil.... Motul..
Yeah, I think I learned something from my mistakes so it should go easier the next go around. The biggest mistake I made was assuming I needed to spoon the new tire on as opposed to lubing it, centering it, then pressing it on.
Google the zip tie method and watch a video. I had to change the rear tire on my Xmax last month and was 400 miles from my tire changing tools. I used zip ties and changed it under the awning of my RV
An irritating problem has started showing up.......the bike stalls occasionally, either when just stopping or when pulling away. The dealer keeps emailing New York and never gets a reply.
Dealer has flashed the newest edition, no change and the warranty just expired so it'd be nice to find a simple fix. The check engine light came on the first few times and the dealer downloaded the error codes but lately, no error codes.
I'm just about to try fuel injector cleaner (only because I have some) but that shouldn't be the problem. Battery terminals are tight.
1) plug cap
2) disconnect/reconnect battery
Wind issues all resolved. eBay model, not a real MRA. Gorilla glued the upper pivot in this position as the lock lever was piping out.
I put Maxima Extra 4 in mine.
Redline oil in the rear.
My 2016 sometimes stalls at high speeds, for a second, then starts running again.
No solution yet.
Try a fuel additive.
I use Lucas fuel treatment every tank but what are you suggesting and why?
Are you thinking deposits and thus using a PEA based cleaner will help such as Redline or 44K?
Years ago some BV250's had a problem with failing spark plug caps. On mine it was just always loose, and would fall off. I replaced it with a new NGK cap, and so far everything is fine. It's such a tiny job it's worth trying.
I watched Robot on Scooterwest's site, the 9k mile service for the GTS250/300s. He talked about the spark plug cap as being a part that needed to be watched. Sorta of a quote, "The last thing you want is to be going 70 on the freeway and have the cap fall off" or something like that.
I would check it, heck, even replace it in case there is a micro crack or separation of a wire. Can't hurt!
The old caps (green rubber) were the problem but I'm game.
Most say when the cap goes bad the engine runs poorly all the time, not ocassional stall however?
The same caps
So this Malosi cap is hard to get off, what does that mean when you need a new plug?
I need to change my belt, I have all the parts via a kit.
Can anyone recommend a good variator holding tool? Any other specialty tools needed? Good guide to do this?
Other things to look at
-faulty kill switch - replace & use di-electric grease
-faulty coil - see below
-side stand switch - ? Not sure. Maybe big bumps cause the side stand to move and temporarily stall motor? Replace springs? Replace switch?
-loose ground strap bolt - check. Behind right spark plug panel. Bolts ground to frame.
Coil - 641901. Looks like it's used on alot of different scooters and motos.
Seems like the same part # for all years.
Price for coil is great but you'll laugh at the plug cap $.
I have the latest cap and it fits on there tight.
Scooter west on YouTube has a video on the belt change along with all of the tools you will need. It's very well done.
He uses alot of shop air tools...
