Hey all. As some may know, last week I had problems with the indicator display light flashing it's head off. Since then I've had some other problems too and thought to post them up here in the one thread. Indicator lights/no horn: It did this again (flashing) on the way to Beaconsfield Friday morning and then the indicators (and horn) stopped working. Dave changed the fuse to a 20amp one and they fiddled with the wires and the actual indicator switch and that seemed to do the trick. No more problems of this nature for the rest of the wknd. It was probably something to do with the indicator switch - perhaps water got in there or perhaps it's just in need of a good wipe. Indicator light problem solved. *** Heated grips - When I picked the bike up from the mechanics, he told me that he'd wired the grips straight to the battery, so I'd need to make sure I turned the grips off after turning the ignition off. (Otherwise potential flat battery). I thought nothing of this as I knew nothing better...didn't think there was anything better. I soon learnt though - Ta Doit and Dave - that the mechanic should've wired it up to the ignition. He'd chosen the lazy/backyard mechanic option. :evil: Talk about taking advantage of a chick with no idea. Freakin bastard charged me to fit them too...which I wouldn't care about had they done it right! I'll sort that out. Today. I've lost complete trust in these guys. They can get stuffed. (Further reasons for my being pissed off are below). *** Tappits Going up a hill on the Saturday afternoon. I overtook a car and then as I was getting back into my lane I gave her a bit of throttle and the bike was all talk (revved) and no action (lost power). Pulled over and waited for some of the others...went a little further and then pulled over again as the bike was sounding and acting very sick. It had a Ducati like drone :grin: but no Ducati like grunt. There was also a loud tapping sound. Hmm.. Dave had a look at her and it was decided it'd be right to ride to Bright (there weren't many other options really) - so long as I didn't give it too much throttle. There was a limit to how much I could give it...too much and the bike would get the chugs and lose power. It was happy to sit on 80 kph on the flats - but it putted up the hills. Dave stayed by my side for most of the way and even gave me a push every now and then to get me up some of the tougher hills. I was glad to get to Bright - and even more surprised I got there in one piece....one shouldn't ride with a frucked up mind. Mr. Cruisingal had a listen to it and said 'SOunds like the tappits (sp?)...she'll be right - I'll fix her in the morning'. haha. He said 'fix her' not 'have a look at her'. Fix. Her. haha. yay! He kept his word...I got up the next morning to find the bike pulled apart and a tappit that wasn't where it was supposed to be. It had come loose (perhaps due to the mechanic not doing it up enough) and I'm lucky that it didn't go into the motor as methinks that would've been a bit of a bigger drama. He put it back in its rightful place and put the bike back together and I took her for a ride around Bright and came back with a big grin on my face. I'm not sure whether the mechanic did anything that involved the tappits - so I'm going to post up the service summary. This is what was done at the last service: Replaced oil Replace/Cleaned oil filter Cleaned air filter Check fuel filter Drain carby Replace spark plug Check battery Check wheel bearings Check and adjust brakes Check steering joints Check swing arm pivots Check tyre pressures Check radiator and oil cooler external blockage Lights and horn Wheel nut tension and axle nut tension Check/adjust spokes Lube/adjust chain Rear brake (had been squealing ever since they put the new rear tyre on last service) Polish tank (to clean up some of the finer scratches that were on it) Fitted heated hand grips Check rear brakes Adjusted rear brakes. Does anyone here see anything that tells them the mechanic did touch the tappits??? I'm going in to see them this afternoon. I'm pissed - not happy being taken for an idiot. I've also lost trust in them...an accumulation of a number of issues since buying the bike from them. Wont be going back again. :evil: I was under the impression that for the warranty, I needed to get the bike serviced with the Yamaha dealership for the first 12 mths. I now know this is not the case and will be taking her in to see some other mechanic who I got good vibes from a while back. Thanks to everyone for their help over the wknd. And thanks again to those who stayed behind me on what were some beautiful rds.
