    This is a common problem with the S and ST. Your rotors are either warped, or bobbins have worn so that there is too much slop, or the bobbins are dirty and/or damaged causing the rotor to get stuck...

    Probably, but you need to build up pressure before opening the bleeder valve. It is a long process to do that way. I typically pump the lever until I get pressure (3-5 times, then hold the lever...

    Wow, I've got 60k miles on my 08'ST and would never dream that it's worth 5 grand, and it's immaculate. Good for you.

    Glad to hear that you're back to riding. Sorry to hear that you can't find an...

    The stator goes bad because it overheats which melts the wire insulation. This causes the wires to ground out.

    I'm no electrical engineer, but this is how I understand it... These bikes have an...

    I get an EWS error occasionally when it is cold and my battery isn't fully charged. A couple on and off with the key and it always goes away (for me). I would guess that you'll be fine with a new...

    Which year? I've only had an ST, but many of the older models have floating rotors which are supposed to move. You should be able to cause movement with your hand and especially feel it if you hold...

    I totally agree about the more air with same surface area = bigger holes, and thus more dirt. That's bad for oil life and engine longevity.

    The engine is designed to run on 87 to 91 octane. The manual even published different horsepower numbers for different octane levels. Less power means lower fuel economy, so I also use higher octane....

    I have mine mounted on the front side of the upper yoke on the left. I used velcro and zip ties. My phone mount is just above it, so I use a 1 foot charging wire. Works great. You can see the cover...

    Interesting that you didn't find the booster plug helpful. I have found that it did wonders for slow speed and bumper to bumper driving (like every time I drive through Chicago!) but after a couple...

    Wow! Never heard of that happening. Glad he was okay and that the damage wasn't worse.

    That's a rare bird here in the US. Chances are that it will be a very reliable bike. If you do come across a problem, then you have already noticed that this site has the solution explained.

    The two LEDs I added put out twice as much light as the original halogen. It's hard to describe how big the improvement is. They are 10 degree spots and I keep them aimed so that no one blinks at me....

    Well then that just leaves spark. Computer (or a connection), plugs, or coils. It might be worth scanning the ecu for errors/faults.

    Sorry, I must have missed your last sentence that it will turn over but not start. That's good news. Please ignore my post earlier.

    The next thing I would check is the fuel system. Can you hear...

    If your oil was low enough to cause the light to come on then you probably did some real damage to the cylinders or piston rings leading to things seizeing. I would not have ridden it home. That...

    One more thing to consider is to make sure the calipers and forks are lined up parallel. The right side of the axle doesn't have a spacer, so make sure the rotor is centered in the caliper before...

    I always clean and polish the pins with sand paper as mentioned above, and coat them with a layer brake grease. Seems to work well.

    Sounds like you also have a clutch switch problem. That's common, I have to clean mine every year or so. This is not related...
