    Just had to crack open a bottle of Kraken which was also a Christmas present as I've just heard that I am going to be a grandad again.

    FFS Blackie after reading this I woke up in a panic this morning after dreaming that I'd been riding bikes for the last 50 years on a moped licence, just had to check and sure enough group D any motor bicycle ( with or without a sidecar). Maybe I should cut down on my rum intake ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hi all Yamaha XJ900f riders Sorry to say last month I commented on XT225 pistons would fit the XJ900f This is not quite right The XT piston is a flat top and needs to be domed But After many months looking on the net I have found the Suzuki GS850 piston are Perfect for your rebuilds But you will have to have Cylinders rebored I have gone for the 70mm Have fun be safe

    Done mine several times. You want to be more specific on which dt125. They run from, pretty much 1975, earlier if you include CT stuff. Right through to the late naughties.

    I loved mine. As Blackwell says a bit of a tank and as a relative short arse, I loved that. Took me all over Britain and Ireland on a number of times and never let me down. The carb rubbers are expensive nowadays and as with any four, a bugger to fit. Did I mention that I loved mine. It was everything my xs250 wasn't.

    Hi All, The campsite and B&B at Pandy didnt come back to me. Anyway the next best place is the Llanthony Camp site. There is a B&B just up the road at the Half Moon. Llanthony, if you dont know, is in the Vale of Ewyas. Which is stunning. At the top end is the Gospel pass - the highest paved pass in Wales. Ill talk to them and see what they say, i dont anticipate any problems as it is basic camping.

    After months of looking online, I have at last found New Engine Pistons which are for the Yamaha XT225 70mm which means they will be over sized from the standard XJ But will need to check Top of the piston to Gudgeon Pin which needs to be 16mm Hope this helps

    Most mechanics (that I know of) have some kind of Ts&Cs that basically mean they're not liable for broken bolts and bits, since so many are often seized, rusted, shagged or buggered... doubly so if the OEM bolts are made of cheese in the first place (Yamaha Cruisers, I'm looking at you), and it's nigh-on essential if the mechanic has anything to do with BMWs on a regular basis!!

    I was never old enough to actually use the original White Fiver but remember seeing one, it looked like someone unfolding a bed sheet from their wallet..!

    Yeah make sure it's running first, change the oil and make sure you change the break fluid!

    Not sure why your asking. The lowest power mode will be no different to full power cruising. It wont change the mixture. Just how aggresive the fueling is. Part throttle cruise is part throttle cruise.

    In what year did Yamaha introduce engine (speed) modes to the YZF R1? What is the expected gas mileage in the weakest power mode? Which is the most efficient mode for street riding/highway cruising?

    This is the sort of thing it would be best to ask Yamaha UK about, tech specs like this are rarely easy to find without extensive research and comparisons to different models which could take hours of searching. Good luck in your hunt for info tho.
