I went to Moab and spent two beautiful days trying not to wreck on the slick rock. I had a brand new maxxis rear tire which is now ready to be replaced. Worth every penny. There were 9 of us 7 yamahas and two hondas. awesome time.

Jeez, wasn't until i scrolled down I realised it was an 07/08 model. How many ks has your bike done? My old 426 did EXACTLY the same thing. Got an 08 now. Fingers crossed....

Happened at 3800 mles. I will now start shifting, up and down, with the clutch. Hope that solves my problem.

Been continuing the winter tear down seeing as I'm still crippled :bonk:
Repacked or replaced all bearings.
Rebuild forks and shock
Brake rebuild
Cable lubing
Cut bars, customized handguards to fit
Repacked muffler
Probably some more things I've forgotten :bonk:

She's almost back together, just waiting on a couple gaskets and a cable from Yamaha and she'll be ready for next spring :bonk:

Skiing and sledding season time soon :bonk:

You tried that setup out yet ?
Wondering how it works in deeper snow, I've heard mixed reviews.

Very,very nice.
One question. How do you like that hot start on the right ? It seems like it would be a real pain to hot start, e-start simultaneously :bonk:

30 miles. Mostly hillclimbs

I learned the Kenda Trakmaster K 760 (rear) is actually a very good tire in loam. The front end spent almost as much time in the air as it did on the ground :bonk:
