Question about 2006 Yamaha MT-03

1 Answer

Pinkig under load ?

Its a 2007 model, 5000 miles. been parked up for two weeks. started ok as usual today but sounds like its pinking when under load through the gears. it has the usual unleaded fuel.
The throttle position sensor was changed under warrany 2000mile ago as the bike was cutting out at tickover then not restarting straightaway.
It has been ok since the sensor was changed and now this pinking/clatter under load.

any one had similar probs or got any ideas ?

    Update on running problem.

    This has now resolved itself.

    I have put a splash of octane booster in with the unleaded fuel and the bike now feels as good as new.

    Just for the record I used- RockOil XRP Fuel Enhancer.

    Regards All.

When do need to change spark plugs on a 2007 Honda Shadow?

Many people change there plugs on a yearly basis. Motorcycle plugs are like car plugs. A standard car plug is usually good for 10,000 miles. The same is true for most motorcycle plugs. I change my plugs every two years , and carry a spare set just in case I foul a set on a trip (bad gas). My plugs generally are changed between 5000 to 8000 miles.

Buning oil i think.

As long as it is between the upper and lower marks it should be fine, if there is no oil where you usually park the bike, then perhaps the Tech didn't allow for the oil filter to fill before calling it complete.

Change out the gas to a higher octane and do not use gas with ethanol. This sounds like engine knock > translated; pre-ignition of the fuel in the cylinder. This is not a good thing to have. It is hard on the crank and even harder on the piston. If the problem does not go away after a tank or two ask the dealer to check the engine timing. Also check gearbox oil level. Low oil creates heat and heat promotes detonation aka pre-ignition.

2006 HD Sportster 1200XL rear cylinder not working

Sounds like an ignition problem. Probably a fowled or damaged spark plug or lose or damaged spark plug lead. Try new spark plugs, I only recommend NGK and you may need to fit hotter plugs for cold weather riding. Plugs are cheap and thats the best place to start.

Shuts off

Sounds like some kinda bad electrical connection. Check all your wireing is good and all connections are tight. Then start checking things like the switch gear on the bars and ignition switch. A voltmeter will be a very handy tool for this.and also Check your Battery cables, especially the Ground.
