I HAVE A 2009 YAMAHA GRIZZLY 550. I JUST REPLACED THE BATTERY AND NOW I HAVE A BIG E ON MY DISPLAY HOW DO I CLEAR IT SO THE DISPLAY IS NORMAL AGAIN


Unfortunately, you have to buy a new display! It is a design flaw.
=================
Yup big flashing E and it's done, you can contact your dealer if you want to make sure, if you have a warranty it should be covered. For some reason the meter peters out under low voltage, something I can't quite get my head around but it's happened to a lot of folks.

Your quad will run fine with out it, I found one for 237$ at foxyamaha dot com, it's under meter. I've heard there's an upgrade on the newer ones, but I haven't found anything official saying that, might want to make a few calls.

Exhaust is glowing red After two minutes


Hi, Anonymous a YZ is a motocross bike designed to run flat out that being said if you are strolling down some scenic trail at a slow pace or letting the bike idle for a few minutes your header pipe will turn cherry red, why you ask? It is not a street bike, it is designed for competition and weight is a major factor all necessary components are of the smallest and lightest design necessary to maintain performance under extreme conditions ie. small radiator and inside frame oil reservoir that doesn't get cooled, the majority of your riding needs to be at high speed.

2006 TTR250. Bike will not idle unless choke is fully engaged. After a minute or less of this the head pipe (the one that comes right off the block, I don't know if I have the name right) becomes glowing...


two things you have to oberved. Choke is only applicable if you experience hard starting in the morning,If yes then use choke for a while till you got your motor idling stage.the glowing red hot indicates that your engine is flaming hot, this means your choke is steadily on.( never stay your choke steadily on.).Try to clean your carb , carb cleaner will do. even without dismantling your carb from the engine manifold.Rev your throttle and spray through the air intake, you'll notice a foul sound bcoz the cleaner is mixing with your gas,it's fine.also you'll notice a black smoke while doing a full rev. it's also fine , thats the carbon that need to push out from your carb. take it from there my friend ...let me know the result.observed your bike
