Do you guys think it's OK to run the bike uncorked on both ends but with stock ECU? I only on some bikes too leasn could cause major damage. Dealer sold me wrong part number and proper ECU won't be here before the weekend. As you can imagine I'm dying to ride my new bike.

Won't run lean enough to do damage, unless you get it to detonate and keep riding it....

Your welcome to the YZ one but I wonder if the shipping would kill the deal. They cost $20. at the dealer or you can grind the rivets and remove the tea kettle for free.

is that for the bracket holding the aircleaner?

 

or... for the original teakettle thing..?

You won't have any problems you will need to install a short screw to remove the throttle stop. You should also remove the tea kettle.

Yes the tea kettle is under the bottom air cleaner holder. You can grind off the plastic rivets to remove the tea kettle.

You just use the stock air filter cage and grind off the rivets. = $0.00

 

If you don't want to grind off the rivets $22. for a YZ cage.

Sales tax in tx is 6.25%. Wild West in Katy is where I'm purchasing the bike.

Actually it's by county, unless the vehicle in question is street legal. 6.25% is the Texas state mandated sales tax for all new vehicles sold which are to be titled and registered for on highway use.  Any new vehicle sold (Motorcycle, ATV, etc.) with a MSO that states "OFF HIGHWAY USE ONLY", the sales tax is whatever the local county's sales tax is. I'm in Collin county (Dallas), and the sales tax is 8.25%. 

 

If your dealer is going to plate it, and convert the title to remove the OHV exemption, that's awesome! Plus you get to pay the lower tax rate. 

 

I plated my 2009 WR. I bought it used, but then installed a DS kit. Had to first get it inspected, then fill out the paperwork to convert the title. It was a bit of a hassle. No dealer I talked to here locally is willing to plate a Yamaha, as the MSO's are so specific about it's intended use.

 

Now KTM's and Huskys are another story. Apparently their MSO's are written so that ANY of them can be sold as street legal, or OHV, whichever the buyer prefers. That's the way it should be, IMO.

 

Anyway, congrats on the new bike! Can't wait to get mine. Post up some pics when you get it. 

 

Oh, what kind of a deal are they giving you? I'm pretty much stuck at MSRP + tax at the three dealers I've talked to. The one I'm buying it from said they can get me some Blu Cru bucks (like $300 I think), and a couple hundred in store credit, but that's it.

Ah ha. I wasn't even thinking about the off-road use tax being different than street legal. Good point. I'm paying 6.25%

I didn't get any discount on the sales price, but got what i would call a good deal overall, being that this is a brand new bike, and that they are plating it for me. I'll get some store credit and blu bucks, but in the end, the money given in store credit/blue bucks came from my pocket one way or another.  :lol:

 

I'll start my own thread, so I can stop cluttering up stevethe's.

You can do it with just a short screw. Just unscrew the long one go get a short one and tighten it. You don't have to remove anything.
If you put in the factory one you need to remove the cable cover as it takes a nut that goes in there.
