Thanks. I'm feeling better now. I was too emotional yesterday and honestly, I can't remember the last time I felt like that. I posted like -- 30 mins after it happened. Anyway, those other people don't really bother me. It's all good. I did see your post as well, sorry about that, I definitely know how it feels.
Well, if there is no lights at all, the first thing you need to check is the battery, like you said. Try that first... that would be the best case scenario.Okay, so cousin tried to start the SV650 but nothing came on at all. It's a bit late now to try and fix. So I'll tackle it tomorrow. Anyway, what do I do to diagnose? I'm thinking it is the battery? Like I said, key on, there's no dashboard or lights at all. We tried to push start, no luck.
Yeah but they don't have that BMW/Harley/Ducati/Triumph badge on the tank so how would anyone know how much cooler I am than them?
Based on what I've seen on this motorcycle, it's a bit scary. It's a lot faster than it looks.
"Introducing Yamaha Premium..."
Nice! And welcome!Hey everyone! New rider here. Always wanted to ride...just thought it looked so exhilarating...and fun! Anyway, took the MSF course and passed a couple of weeks ago and then passed the state test last week so I was able to get my endorsement. One of my main motivations for wanting to ride was the gas savings. Suffice to say I didn't expect riding to be THIS much fun and in the 4 days I've rode I already put another 120 miles on the bike! I picked up a used 2009 Ninja 250R so it gets around 60ish MPG and costs less than 10 dollars to fill up which makes it really hard not to just explore. Looking forward to all the miles I'll put on this bike and the eventual next bike I definitely will be purchasing in the future!
Nice, hope to see some pics soon!Haven't ridden the ZRX since the beginning of June when the radiator sprang a leak. Laziness and a general apathy towards life meant it's been sitting since then.
However, the radiator has now been sent off for repair and I am using the warm weekends still left to finally get around to the upgrades I've been desiring for so long. Airbox and stock steel/rusty exhaust are gone, to be replaced by pod air filters and a stainless system from Black Widow in the UK. I hope to get around to swapping the cams to those from the ZX11 this weekend. Carbs are currently being deep cleaned and rejetted by a ZRXOA member and should be back next week. Looking forward to riding this fall if everything goes well. Will be just in time for our southern hemisphere members to share the joy.
when you find some good one, please post and report.It was pretty cold this morning. Getting towards that time of year where I give up riding (commuting at least) I think, though I'll carry on riding at least 50% of the time until it gets to the point where it's dark in the morning and in the evening. No fun and not safe.
I'm fed up of getting changed in the office so next spring I'm definitely going to buy a pair of riding chinos.
Nice, hope to see some pics soon!
I was thinking of these from Rokker. The motolegends store is very close to me so I'll probably try them on next year and report back. Need to lose a few kgs from my waist first.... That or accept I'm in my 30s and buy a bigger size lol.
I knew you would link Rokker. They are. It cheap but the only ones that are looking good enough for business.
I’ve actually been riding a lot lately. Everyday to work, even the rainy days, and taking the long way home almost every night. I’ve done a few day trips too over the past few weekends.
Can’t she use a bicycle? Or is everything too far away from another? We here in Germany have a phenomenon called „helicopterpatents“ they drive their children EVERYWHERE, even to school. But you have to keep in mind that Germany is a very dense country. There are not many reaction if any where a teenager needs it’s parents to get from a to b.
It's about six miles of fairly hilly terrain, but more importantly, we get ~2m of snow here over six months of the year :P.Can’t she use a bicycle? Or is everything too far away from another?

No service records. I hope the dealership at least changed the fluids at one point...
Almost a year already huh? Time sure does fly. JeezI’ve actually been riding a lot lately. Everyday to work, even the rainy days, and taking the long way home almost every night. I’ve done a few day trips too over the past few weekends.
I’ve had the Goldwing for almost one year now and I’ll be turning 10K miles today if I take the long way home. Best motorcycle I’ve ever owned, no question at all. I’m replacing my rear tire next week, already bought it and the dealer will put it on the rim for me for $21 balanced (the tire cost me $170). Putting a back tire on the Wing costs less than HALF of what doing a new back tire on ’16 Road Glide was. This Honda saves me money left and right compared to riding a Harley, lol.
It's gonna be a nice weekend, I think I’ll ride up to New York on Sunday and play around the Catskill Mountains for a day!
He's in Maine iirc.
Wife has a Tacoma and I have an AWD Lexus, used to have a WRX. Although if the roads are bad you just stay in. Maine is pretty good at clearing them, only a problem a few times each winter.
