Last time I rode my bike, it ran terrible. Brought in the old garage and started checking the reason. Found the throttle plate missing a piece at the bottom and cracked up the side that is still there. Has anyone else had issues with these? The little gem costs $80.00 + 10.00 for the o-ring. I talked to the dealer and was told this never happens, well except to me. I have never worked on a motorcycle so much in my entire life. I used to ride KTM's only. One thing about Yamaha, you become a good mechanic.

Yes this is a known issue with the Keihen Carb on these bikes. Do a search on broken slide and you will see a number of incidents.
