Hello, I have a Yamaha R-15 Version 2.0 2011

Hello, I have a Yamaha R-15 Version 2.0 2011 model and I am from Noida, India. Recently I started experiencing instability while taking turns on my R15 first I thought it is some problem with the rear wheel brake coz as I start the bike the rear brake light start blinking a little so I thought may be the brakes are getting applied on its own (the brake light has been like that after a recent service a month ago) But after few days while taking the bike out I felt the steering a bit stiff and there was a click sound after I turned the handle straight from its parked position. I would like add that this stiffness has come after I had to ride the bike in rain for 20Kms last month and roads were also quite flodded. Now I am facing lot of instability while riding my bike and the front wheel feels a bit shaky. I would have straightly taken it to the J M Motors service center in Noida Sector-10 but during the last service they mishandled and damaged my bikes left side tail end piece so I'll have to go to some service center in Delhi and all of them are quite far from my place. What is want to know is that is it a simple rain rust stiffness which can be solved by lubrication(if so please tell what kind of lube can i use for this and where can I get it from) or is it some bearing damage problem? if so ill immediately take it to a service center. Please advice

It sounds like the service you got forgot to lube the cable or the rod to the brake also there should be a service cap screw on the freont fork to lube it also and check your front axle bolt to be sure it is at the proper tourque. If either is to tight or loose it could be dangeraus. As far as the water is concerned the bike shouldn't have a problem there. Good luck and be carful.

Testimonial: "Thanks Ron the bolt looks to be in proper torque condition. Anyways I feel the steering's bearing might need some greasing. So I'll take her to the service center first thing in the morning. :)"

SOURCE: Brake lights

The taillight should be on at all times. The brakelight should come on when the front or rear brakes are applied. Start by disconnecting the front brake light switch then the rear to see which switch is broken. Also check the bulbs. I have seen them short out internally. The filament inside the bulb break and contacts the other circuit.

SOURCE: rear traction on 2004 honda 1100 vt sabre

Hi ...... Def'ly sounds like a traction problem. Elevate the rear wheel off the ground using a centre-stand or axle stands. Grip the wheel at 12 o'clock & 6 o'clock then 9 o'clock & 3 o'clock, wiggle & pull (gently) in both positions, if you feel any movement it points towards wheel bearings. Check to see if there are any oil leaks, oil breather hose or battery breather hose which exit over the rear wheel. Is the shock leaking onto the wheel ? Is it a drum or disc brake ?
