I just use philips screwdriver bits myself checking that they fit snugly say a no2 for brake reservoir screws or if you have it the original bike toolkit should have the correct screwdriver in it. :)

Put the bike on the centre stand & turn the handlebars to the left which should put the resevoir level,you should able to see top of fluid in the eye glass ,unless it's over filled or empty  :eek .

  Maybe it's just me but pozidrive heads on machine screws seems wrong. Pozidrive heads are for wood screws. Vehicle cross head screws are supposed to be Philips heads aren't they? Like I say, maybe it's just me.



Maybe but the screw heads on Japanese bikes are JIS heads not Philips or Pozidrive that's why the heads get chewed up. JIS screw bits/screwdrivers are becoming hard to find now & expensive, the Japanese are now fazing the JIS screws out so philips drivers will have to do. :)

It is common for the fluid level to drop as new pass and brakes settle in though right?

Well not really,when new pads are fitted the pistons in the calipers have to be pushed back in to receive the new thicker pads when the calipers are refitted the brakes are operated to push the pistons back out & brake fluid level will drop this should be topped up if required,then the fluid level should only drop with pad wear very very slowly.

You need to heat the stickers with either a heat gun or hairdryer the dryer being a bit safer to release to adhesive.


As for the BMW well it could be worse like a Volvo!. :lol

Here's the link for the conversion & can confirm no relay is required as for the M.O.T I have fitted a waterproof bullet connector behind the fairing in the cable which I disconnect just for the M.O.T. :)

That sounds correct to me  :rolleyes  if you press the pass switch on the left hand handle bar the n/s bulb should flash. There is a conversion you can do on the left bulb to have both headlights on at same time.

« on: 07 April 2017, 05:34:12 PM »
As you have split the caliper & pistons are corroded can you not grip them with a pair of water pump pliers or mole grips in the vice & with a left/right movement pull them out,you maybe lucky cleaning the bores & piston seal groove on each side,new pistons & seals lubed with clean brake fluid,once pistons & seals are in lube around them with a smear of red rubber grease.

Next time it don't start take a plug lead off a plug & make sure you got a spark from the cap.

Recheck your side stand bypass,clutch switch & wiring connectors to the starter cut off relay under the seat.Does the bike start as normal when left for a short length of time.

darrsi,if the fault is with the starting circuit then this would be redundant when once riding.

ben17484, You defo flooded it this morning if you kept cranking it on full choke,if it don't start with choke on with first push of starter turn choke off before attempting to start again. The battery has gathered enough energy by sitting all day to start but you will need to go on a long run to recharge or put it on a charger suitable for bike batteries.Glad you got it sorted.  Smile

darrsi,just thinking could it be a electrical fault,connection or broken wire somewhere near the front end linked to the starting circuit,ignition switch if it starts after pumping the forks making the loom move connecting & disconnecting,a mare to trace but worth a look me thinks.

Yes you can but be careful connecting the large car jump lead clips to the small terminals on your bike.
It is not uncommon for the original battery to last this long if it is a black battery possibly a GS Yamaha Motor Company one this would more lightly be the original Yuasa/Lucas or branded other would be later replacement with a life of around 5-10yrs service.

ben17484,charge the battery with a charger first, not with the battery charger connected.Shocked

I use the choke all year round with no ill effect.Smile
As Fazerider said charge battery & try starting again,it maybe time for a new one do you know how old it is.

« on: 29 March 2017, 08:30:19 PM »
Can't help you with the paint code thing but have you tried T-CUT or AG to try & bring the colour back I take it's red which is the culprit,as it's the top clear coat that has faded it maybe worth a try,better with a machine buffer but can be done by hand then a good resin polish.   Smile
