    My first bike was a 92" Yamaha Secca II (XJ600S) known as the Diversion in the rest of the world. I bought it in 99 and sold it in 01 to a friend of mine. It was a good first bike.

    It required a...

    Yes, it should be a cup as it is pictured in your pics. The idea is that the rubber contacts the surface of the brake fluid reducing the exposure to air, and thus moisture that could be absorbed into...

    I know this is an old post, but I was just in the middle of a front end overhaul on my ST which has 60,000miles and decided that my damper needed some attention since I had it off the bike. I...

    I talked to him this morning because he lives only a few miles down the road from me. When he did the fork job in mid September he had 33,000 miles on it.

    I've found the camera function of the Google translate app to be very helpful for situations like yours.

    In my 2 decades of commuting and road trips I have ridden tens of thousands of miles in the rain. That said, I don't enjoy it, nor do I intentionally do it. I will not ride to work if it's raining in...

    I rubbed then down with a Scotch bright pad and coated them with lube. They were nice and smooth.

    I can't comment on a deceleration light, but extra brake lights are very easy and dirt cheap to add. I used red led strip lights mounted to the back of the luggage rack, plus extra ones in my top...

    Squeak from front brake

    About 200 miles ago I replaced the worn out front rotors and calipers on my 08' ST along with doing a fluid flush. This is one of the original "floating" style bobbins that came on the older F800...

    I'm pretty sure my ST already has connectors right there where the two fairing meet. Unplugging them is a part of the procedure for removing the lower fairing.

    Based on your comments, your stator appears to be fine. You also appear to have a really strong battery. The 17 volts would be the result of a faulty RR. I'd reach out to electrosport and explain...

    I replaced my left heating element about 5-6 years ago. If I remember correctly it wasn't that bad to do and was reasonably priced. I wanna say it was less than $100 for the parts.

    I just did mine again last week because things felt "loose" when I hit bumps. I replaced mine a few years ago and now seem to have to tighten them at least once a year. A few times a year I jack the...

    Yeah I'd skip it for a while. These days with modern oil, over a year won't make any noticable difference. I average about 7500 miles a year and typically change it every fall. This year I only rode...

    Without bar risers it would be tough to find one to fit. Perhaps you could consider a small strap down tank bag?

    I've found the original tank bag to be the perfect size. I keep it on all the...

    Since the wheels and bolts are interchangable on ST and GT, I would have to assume that they are the same size. On my ST they are definitely T50. Nice snug fit. Over the years I have found that I use...

    I would agree that the charge state of the battery indicates that the stator is fine. You can do the Y1, Y2, Y3 test as stated above to confirm this. Assuming that is the case, you only need a new...

    I really like my Shad SH45. Great size and shape. Shad makes the BMW cases, so it's good quality. The mounting plate goes great on top of the existing rack. I chose it to replace my original BMW top...

    Yeah, computer switching off and blown bulbs screams high voltage and R/R failure to me. Of course a voltage meter would help tell us what's going on. R/R is really easy to replace, but you'd be...

    Yeah, I run a pig tail from the battery (actually a fuse block) down to the space where the rear shock preload adjustment is. That way I can plug it in as needed without taking anything apart.

    Put a voltmeter on it and do the same tests. My bet is that your jacket is drawing more watts than the stator can produce at idle. Our stators put out about 250 watts at idle, peaking at about 400...
