2008 Yamaha YZF-R6 turn signal wiring harnes

sorry.. i don't know off the top of my head but super simple way to check.. get an electrical tester that pierces the wire and turns on a light.. ($5 at walmart--seriously) turn on left signal, check the wires.. the one that is flashing is your left signal... so on and so forth..

(this tool will be super handy in the future also)

:)

Where is the Loose ground wire on the frame

Loose ground wires can cause all kinds of problems, and since ground wires are located in multiple locations specific to each model, each wire must be checked to assure connection. If you have a starter problem, check the positive connection to the starter as well. Remove seat and side covers and look closely at the frame to find black and/or black with another color attached to the frame. Remove, clean and reinstall each connection. Paint, rust and other corrosion can degrade connections. Also check your wires for corrosion, especially the battery wires.

2003 Yamaha Drag Star 650. I am missing a bolt under the engine. Does anyone know what it is for?

This could be anything! Could you use the 'Comment' button below with Photos of the bolt hole AND where it is on the bike? This will give more clues as to what it is used for.

How to replace shift shaft on 2005 TT-R230

Hello, Unless you are a REALLY GOOD mechanic with the correct tools, please do not attempt this. This is a pretty much straight forward job for a professional! Shouldn't take more than 2 hours, This is NOT a learning experience unless you are being tutored by a PROFESSIONAL!!

2003 Yamaha R1 timing chain replacement. Having trouble getting the timing set back correctly. And info or video's would be most helpful.

Bring the #1 piston (not sure if its the far right or far left piston) to top dean center on the compression stroke. There should be timing marks on the stator/generator flywheel (two of them) one is the TDC mark and the other is the timing mark. You use the TDC one! Then time BOTH cams (there should be a mark) ..make sure the piston is still at TDC and both cams have the BOTH cams lobes are108* away from the lifters.

Maxim. Does it use motor oil and transmission oil or just one fluid?

One of those drain plugs MIGHT be your neutral indicator detent spring and ball. MAKE SURE its in neutral before removing either plug. The other one is the oil drain plug. Both will drain oil, but the neutral detent will not get all the oil out,

Which shift forks do I need for second and sixth gear?

If you are replacing 2 shift forks, I would replace ALL of them.. if they show signs of wear, replace all of them! You also need to find out WHY they are worn out! Bent shift shaft? Do you ride with pressure on the shifter after you have shifted (to make sure it stays in gear)...If the bike has been dropped on the left side, you might have bent them. A PROFESSIONAL needs to inspect you transmission!!

How can I handle a clutch plate cover oil leak?

If you do not want to drain the oil, lay the bike (CARFULLY!) down on its left side.. let the oil settle down, Remove the right case, carefully clean ALL the gasket material off the engine case and the cover! make sure there are no dents, dings, scratches, etc on either surface!! Get some quality gasket sealer - NOT ANY FORM OF SILICONE SEALANT!!! I prefer yamabond #4. CARFULLY PUT A small BEAD around the face of the outer case cover face and place the NEW GENUINE OEM GASKET onto the case and make sure its seated fully around the case, you can use the screws to hold it in place until it dries. WAIT until overnight and it fully dried and seated/sealed. Now, carefully put a small amount of good heavy grease on the gasket then carefully install the case ..tightening in a criss-cross pattern until completely seated, then fully tighten all fasteners. If you do it right,, it will NOT leak!
