1 Last Yamaha for me! on Mon Jun 15, 2015 11:49 am


No more Yamaha's for me after this one. Nothing but bloody problems! The bars are wonky which look like they are down to the clamps not being level ( means dropping forks to line it all up ) The cam chain rattles like a bastard at 5k rpm that can be heard over a full system without baffle, the rattle is that loud! Now it looks like i have a issue with the clutch. If you rev the bike with the clutch pulled it you can feel the bike jolt, if you cruise just on throttle you can feel the bike jolting ( nothing to do with fueling might i add ) and when its hot, the bastard clutch seems to stick so its slowly releases then just goes! because of this the bike stalled whilst crossing a road! Nearly ended up with me under it. I know there a new bike/engine but surely when mentioning issues, Yamaha shouldn't say

*Well we haven't heard any problems with this that or another, but we will swap it for a IMPROVED version of *enter part here* But we can't say it won't happen 1000 miles later*

The MT-03 had issues with cutting out and TPS problems. I'm going back to a Italian bike next time round ( but not use it all year round )

// *Rant over*

I'm stepping away from Japanese bikes in general i think! Suzuki's are boring! I will probs end up with either a new monster or tuono

Funnily enough I quite like the look of the Tracer, so that's an interesting post. But let's face it, only Jap factory to make interesting bikes is Kawasaki. Go Aprilia, Triumph, KTM, or Ducati or similar for excitement. Like whether or not you'll get home..........


5 Re: Last Yamaha for me! on Mon Jun 15, 2015 3:07 pm


TBF my ducati was brill apart from corrosion. But then again, the MT-09 is furred up on bolts already! I don't think the triple has been out long enough for them to iron out problems. Would be nice if Yamaha said yes there is a problem instead of saying they will replace parts if you want them too...

If i wanted a thrill as to if i would get home or not, I'd buy a Harley lol

Sounds bad that mate!! Think I'd be getting rid! Kawasaki the route to go!!

8 Re: Last Yamaha for me! on Tue Jun 16, 2015 8:31 am


Looking at the oil last night, its very very thin... almost looks like they didn't do a oil change at the first service ( wouldn't surprise me ) So I'm going to give it a oil change and see if its any better. I did wonder if the clutch plates were sticking as it doesn't slip, it just seems to stick. Hard to explain without riding it and even then you don't always notice it.

Bike will be going back for the bars that's for sure. Been like it for 4,000 miles and said at first service and been back since. Took it somewhere else for them to agree that the bars are indeed, NOT level.

I have actually thought about going back to a older Z1000 like i had before, but i know it won't be the same.

the finish and build quality on all modern bikes has gone downhill if you ask me even Hondas are not like they used to be.
why should you pay for another oil change m8 raise hell in the showroom when they are busy pretty sure they will buckle and agree to at least that..or tell them you want another bike the same to use while they sort it then you can see if its the same.

10 Re: Last Yamaha for me! on Tue Jun 16, 2015 9:20 pm


Have to agree on build quality my old Yams clocking on 20 years and has no rust and its ridden year round, seen a few modern Hondas and there covered in rust, hope you get sorted Matt I thought they might have ironed things out but obviously not also seen a few youtube vids for the bike and they all mention the fuelling issue.

ive been test riding a 12 plate bandit 1250 and its sweet as a nut as regards fuelling you wouldn't know its FI.

11 Re: Last Yamaha for me! on Wed Jun 17, 2015 9:27 am


I don't get why Yamaha can't get the FI Right on their bikes. They seem to run as lean as they possibly can without causing engine damage. The fueling issue can be fixed with a co2 optimizer, or changing the CO levels via the dash. Typical closed loop fueling, no Power commander or other fuel controller can fix it.
