Question about 2008 Yamaha MT-03

1 Answer

Heat questions heat from the exhaust. The rear header pipe is in very close proximity to the shock. The front header pipe is not far from the oil tank and oil coolers. I don't care for the looks of header wrap, but I don't want to heat up the shock either. Thanks.

The shock would get just as hot without the exhaust being next to it. The amount of heat generated by the thousands of up/down cycles a shock goes through, especially at racing speeds, is higher than the heat transferred from the pipe being next to it.

How to remove starter


To remove a 2008 touring starter FIRST remove the seat disconnect and remove the battery negative cable (black) from battery negative (-) terminal, remove the starter front and rear mounting screws with captive washers, remove the Keps nut from the stud of the bracket tab and remove the exhaust support bracket, pull back the rubber boot and remove the hex nut from the battery Post, remove the battery positive and the main power cable ring terminals, remove the starter solenoid connector at the front of the starter, remove the engine oil filler cap/dipstick and cover the fill spout opening with a clean shop cloth or towel to keep out foreign objects/material, to facilitate starter removal, if necessary, remove the two worm drive clamps to release the heat shield from the rear header pipe, remove the starter from the motorcycle carefully sliding it out through the space between the rear exhaust header pipe and the side cover exercising caution to avoid losing the two ring dowels that are somewhat loosely installed in the primary chaincase (or starter) flange.



To install a 2008 touring starter FIRST verify that the two ring dowels are installed in the primary chaincase (or starter) flange, lubricate the o-ring on the starter and lubricate the bore of the primary chaincase with a light film of clean primary chaincase lubricant, carefully slide the starter in through the space between the rear exhaust header pipe and the side cover and with the starter solenoid connector at the front, move the starter into its installed position, remove the shop cloth or towel covering the oil fill spout and install the engine oil filler cap/dipstick at the top of the transmission case, install the slot of the exhaust support bracket onto the stud of the bracket tab aligning the other holes with those in the starter flange, start the Keps nut onto the stud, engage the hole in the exhaust support bracket, install the starter front mounting screw with captive washer, install the starter rear mounting screw with its captive washer and alternatively tighten the starter front and rear mounting screws to 25-27 ft-lbs (33.9-36.6 Nm), tighten the Keps nut on the stud of the bracket tab to 12-15 ft lbs(16.3-20.3 Nm), install the main power and battery positive cable ring terminals onto the battery positive post, install the hex nut and tighten it to 70-90 inlbs(7.9-10.2 Nm), pull down the rubber boot over the terminal connections, install the starter solenoid connector at the front of the starter, if removed, install the three worm drive clamps to secure the heat shield to rear header pipe, tighten the clamp screws to 20-40 inlbs(2.3-4.5 Nm), insert the bolt through the battery negative cable (black) into the threaded hole of the battery negative (-) terminal and tighten the bolt to 60-96 in-lbs (6.8-10.9 Nm) and reinstall the seat.

Where to fill transfer case


HI. On the strat the fill plug is just behind the rear exhaust pipe about one inch or so to the rear. You need to loosen the front exhaust header nuts (don\'t remove 17 ft. lbs. ) remove the rear header nuts (these are allen style 14 ft. lbs.) pull the rear header out of the exhaust port. Use a torque wrench or they will leak. Now you have enough room to install the allen wrench into the fill plug. This plug is about 1 1/2 in diameter. It is a big pain to do. Don\'t loose the exhaust gaskets or just buy new. They are about $12 each. I have reused them just a couple times then install new.

How do i get the header off of a 5sfe motor? i took off the heat shield.. i took off the 4 (i think) main bolts on the top. 1 off the bottom. theres so many? any that are commonly missed? because it will...


There are six bolts for the 2.2L Mr2, the four that you probably found, and there are two more just above and to the left of the oil filter if you are facing the engine from rear of the car. I installed headers about a year ago and also recall a smaller heat shield on the bottom side of the exhaust manifold that may be obstructing the view to the last two bolts. You may have to jack the car up and unscrew the bolts from underneath. Oh, and just so you know, if you are replacing the exhaust pipes, you have to drop out the rear end of the car to pull them out without destroying them or possibly damaging something else, like the UV joint. I hope this helped.

HEAT DISCOLORATION ONLY ON FRONT EXHAUST PIPE NEAR HEADER. WHY IS THAT?


My experience with this is limited. The fix then was to rejet the carb and remove the blue with special stuff they happened to sell in the parts department. The trouble was, as was explained to me by the mechanic servicing my 1973 Honda 350, too much heat because of too much fuel going through the carb.

Pool heater leakage


Chances are that the header or manifold is cracked. usually the heat exchanger themselves are not damaged from freeze, but either the rear manifold (header) or the front header (the one that pipes go in and out of). Sometimes both. Replacing the entire heater is not necessary, about $200 in parts usually. We have a schematic diagram of the LJ heater here: http://www.poolcenter.com/parts_heaters_lite2_lj_2003-present_pg1.htm
