  1. Part No 4MY8230500. Also found on: Yamaha XTZ660 (35.3KW) 1994 4MY1 GERMANY 244MY-332G1Yamaha XTZ660 (25KW) 1994 4NW1 GERMANY 244MY-332G1Yamaha XTZ660 1994 4MY1 FRANCE 244MY-351F1Yamaha XTZ660 1994 4MY2 SPAIN 244MY-352S1Yamaha XTZ660 1996 4MY3 BELGIUM 264MY-300E1Yamaha XTZ660 1996 4MY3 DENMARK 264MY-300E1Yamaha XTZ660 1996 4MY3 FINLAND 264MY-300E1Yamaha XTZ660 1996 4MY3 ENGLAND 264MY-300E1Yamaha XTZ660 1996 4MY3 GREECE 264MY-300E1Yamaha XTZ660 1996 4MY3 ITALY 264MY-300E1
  2. Did you book one? I've not been able to log in on here for several weeks but all appears to be working again now. I take the point about sessions being red flagged, I've noticed there are more of them than when I first started trackdays, and I put it down to more riders having lap timers fitted onto the dash/bars than ever before. I reckon they ride around with one eye on the timer, trying to gain every available nano second at the expense of safety/courtesy. There's plenty of examples on Youtube of dodgy over/undertakes at corners. If I see a bunch gathering in front of me, I'll let them get further in front rather than take risks. Its my only bike. I was up there again in August and then again Sept 8th, that's it now for this year.
  3. Had a ride up to CMC Clay Cross, only to find the showroom closed. Had a coffee, then rode back home just keeping in front of the rain all the way
  4. If successful, thatll give a good gain in HP, but its a fair bit of work to do, and theres always the risk of failure. Youd need to notify insurance, DVLA. Id have alook at the CMSNL website and compare the parts numbers for the two models before starting, just to check compatability
  5. Two groups, novice/inter and inter/advanced. Seemed to work fine, because it was evening, I got the impression more riders rode there than van/trailered. I was in novice/inters, there were some very fast lads in it too, and a couple of instances of dodgy over/undertakes, but all in all just about right for me. Inters/fast tended to be litre plus/track type bikes. Only one red flag in our group, and the marshalls had the black flag out to a couple of riders early on. Plenty of room in the paddock too. One group on, one group off, so only 20 minutes between the sessions, four sessions each group, first group on at 5.30.
  6. Did an evening track session at Donington Wednesday 9th, nice and ry, first since last Sept. Rusty riding at first, disturbed the gravel a little, but smoother in the later sessions.
  7. Have a look at this https://www.dropbox.com/s/b1x1ojthv4h7925/Troubleshooting 3P PMG %26 RR.pdf?dl=0
  8. Sort out the part nos from here, then get searching on the web, they may be common to other bikes. Try ringing around breakers yards too. For the wheels and spokes, there are couple of well known suppliers that advertise in Classic Motorcycle Mechanics monthly magazine. Stafford Bike Show is on in July too, you could have a rummage around there, you never know, you may turn something up
  9. Dash looks the same as my FZ6 S2. On mine, code ER-1 is "no communication or unreadable communication between ECU and instrument cluster - engine will not run". Causes are " faulty wiring or wiring connector - damaged instrument cluster - damaged ECU". As your instrument cluster appears to have several cracks in the screen, I suggest you start at the cluster.
  10. http://yamaha-virago.blogspot.com/2018/10/induction-coils.html Cross reference the part numbers and models, the info is there Dont mention it
  11. I take the fairings (lowers) off my fazer, slip rubber gloves over the exhaust outlets, rinse with cold water, wash with whatever ive got at the time, chammy off what I can get at, then blow dry with the compressor. Leave it a day or two, then cover over the brakes/wheels, seat off, using a low pressure spray gun (5psi), spray all over with ACF50. Leave a day, then wipe off any excess which has formed. I pivot the tank and get underneath that too, all around and under the swinger, get it right into the engine, and particularly the manifold area, as the clamp bolts are notorious for corroding. When that's done, wipe over the brake discs with brake cleaner, take the calipers off and clean the insides with a little detergent and water, red grease the exposed pistons. A fair bit of work, but you can spot stuff that might need doing while you're at it. Chain is blow dried, then oiled up.
  12. Personal choice really I suppose, like how much high viz do you want to wear. If theres a twat on his phone behind you, it may make no difference as hes not looking anyway. Not for me.
  13. Hope you find it. I had one for 5 years, before I traded it in. Absolutely belting bikes for 80s air cooled. Its been for sale twice since for over twice the money I traded it for, and I came so close to buying it back, but decided against as subsequent owners looked to have neglected it somewhat, and I couldnt afford to buy it and throw money at it again
  14. Have a look here https://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-xj750r-seca-1982-c-usa_model8879/partslist/?filter_assembly_group=electrical#.YBA_juj7SUn
  15. Battery. Needs to be fully charged. Check the terminals are secure, clean and dry.
  16. Try here https://www.manualslib.com/manual/612293/Yamaha-Ybr250.html. Good luck with the trip
  17. Thats a neat little piece of work. I'll bear that in mind if my hands get any worse. Bit of arthritis, but plagued with trigger finger at the moment, and cant get either an NHS or private session to correct it in the foreseeable future. But I'm countin my blessings as so far we're covid free
  18. Just checking in, still Covid free Have as good a Christmas as you can all. Stay safe
  19. Look under the tank and double check to make sure you haven't trapped or pinched a fuel pipe
  20. 1970, and fed up with push biking 4 miles to work and back every day, no car licence yet, so took a C50 of my workmate who no longer wanted it. It worked fine, just the kickstart was broken. Id put it into second, walk with it a couple of paces and it would fire up. Ha dit nearly two years, never failed, all I did was fuel it up. How I wish I still had it. Passed my driving test in 72, cars right up to 2009 Nottingham City Council got me back onto two wheels when they brought in the tram/car park tax. Principles meant that I would not pay it, so bought a Dragstar 125 and passed my test on an ER5. Right up till I retired nearly five years ago now, always rode to work, all weathers. Just loved being out on two wheels. Joy rides, trackdays, I just cant get enough. The Dragstar was written off when a car turned right across me, the XV750 I sold three years ago, the YX600 Radian I part exchanged for the FZ6 S2 I now own. Currently trying to convince myself to get a dedicated trackbike as I worry about ragging the Fazer to death
  21. Shouldnt be lumpy, my old one was nice and smooth. If youve no service history, then Id give it a full service first off, and check the carb rubber for cracks/leaks. Get it running right first
  22. HMMM. Ugly. Not keen at all on this type of look, looks kind of unfinished, and I wouldn't want to try and hang on with no fairing. Seems a modern trend that to make machines rideable, you have to buy the "accessories", comfort seat/suspension etc
