Yamaha Other description

I have recently completely gone through this bike. Goes down the road straight and smooth. All the chrome was pretty crusty and rusty so it has been sandblasted and powder coated black. Wheels were also pretty crusty and I have cleaned them up to the best of my ability.  They are not perfect but are in pretty decent condition. I have an extensive list of everything that has been replaced and or rebuilt. Engine has 26k miles on it.  Engine has a clatter coming from right side cylinder.  Ran strong all summer but will need eventual rebuild.  Also could use some fine tuning on the jetting.

Link to my YouTube page.  Quick ride on the bike a few weeks back.

List of new parts:
New Tires front and rear
Front brake pads - not installed
New Front braided brake line - not installed
New Front wheel bearings and seals

Yamaha Files Patents for Leaning Three-Wheeled Electric Scooter

Yamaha has filed a number of patents with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the European Patent Office for an electric three-wheeled scooter. Unlike the Yamaha Tricity which has two wheels at the front and a third wheel at the rear, the patents are for a scooter with two rear wheels, each driven by an electric hub motor.

Yamaha Sketches out the Features on the New 2010 YZ450F [Video]

Thu, 10 Sep 2009

You’ll realize how cheesy that headline is after watching the pretty rad video that Yamaha has released. Yamaha’s new motocross bike has taken a radical new approach.  The engine is backwards. Yamaha’s reason for doing this is to shift the heavy end of the motor more to the center of the motorcycle to make it more agile and responsive.  Slanting the cylinder also made for a straighter pathway for the air intake at the front of the bike.
