  1. I also don't tune all the time. In fact is has been 3 years since the last one. Bike still runs great.
  2. @gorski Glad you are back on the RSV. On this end, I am so glad that I did not get rid of my '07. The decision made it easy for me to keep my RSV simply because of this site for all the knowledge I gained on how to maintain the bike. These bikes are truly very solid...(knock on wood) I've never had any issues of any kind. Ride safe!
  3. I am still here. Just too busy riding lately and working on routine maintenance on my '07 RSV. Pretty interesting what Don had posted about Star Touring. I still get a lot of emails from the Hanover, Pa. Star Touring group, so I am starting to wonder...how long will they last. Keep in touch. Ride safe.
  4. I haven't heard anything as well. The design is very new for Yamaha to completely stop production.
  5. I hope it is a temporary situation due to supply chain issues that affects the entire industry.
  6. @Yama Mama Hello there as well and to all. Be safe always and have a nice riding season.
  7. Really Sharp looking bike. Nice acquisition....Enjoy thousands of miles with her. Ride Safe,
  8. @DarthJ Down the road if you can find a bike that has been through a number of warranty work such as the 'brake switch' and 'starter', etc...it can save you time effort in taking the bike back for repairs. Have fun shopping and keep in touch.
  9. Spray some penetrating liquid on that bolt before you tackle the job. It may help a bit.
  10. Looks like a duplicate key for
  11. So my shop called this morning and they have replaced my starter under warranty. The bike is ready to be picked up So happy….
  12. Yamaha fixed my front brake switch under warranty. Happy with that… now it is my turn to have my starter replaced under warranty. Glad she was in the garage, when it was time for the starter to stop working. Dealer shop already has a starter ordered for me and just waiting until this weekend. So glad I have my ‘07 RSV that I can still ride. pic from yesterday:
  13. Very nice! For sure can be used all year round. Enjoy the outdoors! 👍🏻
  14. I was so busy over the last 2 weeks and the weather was not conducive for riding, so I really did not really take a closer look at my battery situation. I'll try to jump the bike tomorrow and if it starts, I will be so relieved that it is not my starter. If it is truly my battery, that is an easy fix. FWIW, we had about 4 inches of snow last night and hopefully that would be it for the winter season. Spring is just a few more days away.
  15. @Freebird Belated Happy Birthday!
  16. Having the right tools and equipment is the key. It is like having another pair of strong hands to tackle the heavy stuff.
  17. Daytona Bike Week is one of my destination wish in my lifetime. All I can do is to day dream for now.
  18. @ChiefGunnerI am looking forward to your project. I can almost imagine it will come out pretty cool and hopefully brighter.
  19. Today was a very beautiful day in terms of temperature. I think we came close to 70° this afternoon. I was able to warm up my '07 and it cranked right up after sitting for a number of weeks due to bad weather, etc. So this afternoon, I wanted to give the SVTC and spin and it didn't want to crank. Not sure initially what was going on until the onboard voltage meter indicated 11.9 volts. My easy fix for now is to plug it in on my Battery Tender and see if it cranks back up tomorrow. After today, winter temperature is on our way and freezing rain/sleet is forecasted for Friday morning. A little disappointed not being able to ride, but I must be patient.
  20. Still here. Working a lot and staying out of trouble. Hello to all.
  21. It has been over a week now and there is no good weather in sight. Our roads are salt covered and temperature has been below freezing ever since. It is suppose to warm up nicely by Thursday and Friday but...guess what...lots of rain in the forecast. In a way, it is good for mother nature to wash off all the salt and debris from the road. Another week and hopefully there will be some ride time by the 2nd week of February.
  22. The secret is simple. I am always easy on the throttle ever since I've had my 777 installed and religiously keep my rear pressure at 40 psi. I expect my front tire will last almost twice as long as my rear or at least close to 16K - hopefully.
