  1. Saw this on slickdeals... http://slickdeals.net/f/7953569-bridgestone-motorcycle-tires-50-rebate Seems like a great deal.
  2. This is the clutch noise i originally heard...
  3. So, this is on the outside engine, correct? Right where the clutch cable connects to the clutch housing?
  4. This is the first thing i did when i first noticed the problem. it seemed to help some. I'm gonna have to go for another ride and play around with the adjustment. I adjusted it at the lever. it was basically all the way screwed in and I gave it about 3 or 4 full rotations. Noticed the difference when pulling it in right away...however, it didnt completely solve my issue. Thanks! Neutral did seem a lil bit harder to find...missed it a couple times. Thanks! I'll have to try this..thanks for the info. So, an entire clutch kit is about 170 (http://www.tobefast.com/Genuine-Yamaha-Clu
  5. Well, riding home from bike night last night I noticed I was having problems shifting in to 5th and 6th gears. Thannks Midget Todd, I think a clutch replacement is in order at 25k miles. Could there be another reason why I had problems shifting in to the higher gears?
  6. Thanks for the input guys. Like I said, it doesnt slip, just a gargling noise while sitting in neutral. Kinda sounds a lil like the dry clutch on a ducati but not nearly as bad. I'll keep riding it until it slips.
  7. Thanks for the quick responses. I guess I'll just keep riding until it slips.
  8. how do you know when your clutch needs replaced? my 2005 R1 clutch seems to make a gargling noise when dis-engaged while the bike is running and sitting in neutral. When I engage the clutch, the noise stops. I havent had any slippage or noticed anything odd when shifting gears. bike is 10 years old, original clutch with like 26k miles on it. Thanks.
  9. See my CL ad for the details. Thanks! http://columbus.craigslist.org/mcy/4825090430.html
  10. Time the market is impossible. There are people on wall street who make careers of it. Us on a riders forum won't do any better over the long run. So, this is the best advice on this thread. Good post!
  11. Just go to fidelity.com and open one. It's like creating an account for this forum. And a roth IRA is a great option for everyone...except the folks who have an adjusted gross income over the max of 116k per year (i believe this figure could be wrong). it's higher for married folks...just saying.
