  1. Two very different bikes. The MT-03 for commuting and the xt660 for longer rides. The MT-03 would be limited for longer riding, so Id go for the xt660. Make sure that you sit on and try both bikes first for comfort
  2. I still check in fairly frequently. Youve gotta bear in mind that time flies by and we get older, people stop riding, pass away, some bikes have their own specific owners clubs
  3. A Merry Christmas to all, and a Happy New Year
  4. No idea what year your machine is, but heres a link, hopefully it gives you what you want https://dethlefsens.dk/download/yamaha/Yamaha_DT175_1992_ServiceManual.pdf
  5. Depends where you are in the world. There are some companies in the UK that rewind stators
  6. Of have no experience of this bike, but as a member of the Fazer Owners Club (FOC UK), I have seen numerous threads on that site referring to the 7K exup fault. I f I recall correctly, you would have to refit all of the missing parts and then reset (ie zero) the servo motor. It also has to be spotlessly clean and completely free to rotate. You may wish to have a look on there for the FZS1000 Fazer 7K exup fault code
  7. I think most of us had had those moments
  8. Useful fault finding stuff https://www.dropbox.com/s/b1x1ojthv4h7925/Troubleshooting 3P PMG %26 RR.pdf?dl=0 https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1091/5694/files/fault-finding-diagram.pdf?235929069374954073
  9. Front sprocket come loose (FZS600 common problem), splines worn on output shaft, bearings gone on output shaft
  10. https://yamahaclub.com/forums/topic/33433-vacum-hoses-on-xvs-125/
  11. You may be able to piece it together from the schematics on the CMSNL parts website https://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-xvs125-2000-5jx1-england-105jx-300e3_model41926/partslist/#.Yl3EBtrMKUl
  12. If it was running when you took it in, the place you took it to re-built the carbs, fuel now leaks from the carb feeding the front cylinder then I would suggest to you that the person who undertook the carb re-build has an obligation to correct the leak and get the bike running
  13. As above, I woudnt touch Chinese manufacture for what Id consider to be a "critical" part, but its your choice. Id not consider the hoses as "critical".
  14. As for the engineering work to remove the old system, you will need to be skilled at drilling out and removing old,seized stud remnants, and will require much patience
  15. Id be cautious. That pipe is a balance pipe, and different baffles might result in re-jetting being reqd for the carbs
  16. 19 year old bike, Id change the fork oil before spending on new springs. Far cheaper, then asses if further spending reqd
  17. As long as its motorcycle oil you should be ok. Car engine oils have different additives in them. I suppose if the bike has been run on mineral oil for years, there may be a chance of a slight difference in noise, possibly a bit of clutch slip too as the friction material will be contaminated with mineral oil
  18. I converted my FZ6 S2 Fazer to hydraulic 4 or 5 years ago. I found the cable system heavy, particularly when going up and down the box eg in heavy traffic etc. I purchased a Magura conversion kit from Venhill and I reckon it reduced the load by two thirds. Performance wise, it has been absolutely faultless and maintenance free so far. Youd have to check to see if one is available for your machine.
  19. Bike has been imported?
  20. Look closely at the old bearing. Sometimes the clearance is marked onto the races, e.g. C1/C2/C3, and someitmes the clearance is indicated by a number of circular marks like this OOO (C3)> I fyou cant idnetify it, then just bite the bullet and buy genuine, that way there is no doubt. The cost is negligible over the lifetime of the bearing.
