With all the wiring and gadgets done I took it for a 84km ride.
Woala, the playstation control centre...

Damn smart looking she is.

Where did you get the black plastic covers on the frame? I am looking for a set for mine, the boots are destroying my frame.

got it with the bike.
but ask Eugene at Yamaha, he will source it for you.

My ICO, AKA iPhone, still needed a bracket. decided to place it below the RB, out of harm and in the shade for better visibility. Pulled out a piece of aluminium and started measuring, cutting and bending.


How did you fit/secure the iPhone?

home made bracket and....  cable ties  :thumleft:

A semi waterproof cover with Velcro would probably do the job? Also add a bit of shock proofing?

I have a magnet attachment for dash mounting of which I want to use two to add the phone to the 990.
Bought them for R85 each at Midas.
Have a cover like this for R500

I am experiencing some weird electrical problem with my WR. During my sunday ride it started loosing power but will quickly recover again, thought it was a jet. But later noticed that all the lights dim when this happens. conclusion is that something is drawing so much power that it severely affects the engine. But it comes and goes...  ???
I have checked all the new wiring but cannot find anything wrong. Any ideas?  :sip:

Will start a process of elimination this weekend - disconnect one at a time and ride...

120w stator
my kit = 60w max incl indicators.

what I don't understand is how this power drain can effect the motor power so badly - cruising in 5th can hardly accelerate.
And it comes and goes, as if a wire is touching somewhere every no and then...
Even when engine is off, and I through the new main switch to the nav tower, everything just dims right down (head lights still off).

I removed the original speedo unit, but cannot see how this will make a difference.

Maybe a dodgy earth interfering with spark?
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

had the same idea, I had to 'unplug' the spark plug when installing the trail tech... but no, the issue is still there when engine is not running.

My 530 maak net so, hy gaan die komende week vir Julian kuier en ander stator kry, hopenlik is dinge dan reg.

Het gister die battery gecharge en vanoggend gou 'n draai gery en alles is nou weer fine...  ??? ??? ???
Die simptome wys nie na die battery toe nie. Probleem was aan/af heeltyd, nie wat 'n pap battery sou doen nie  :patch: weird.

Sal na werk gou by Julian stop, maar dalk nie 'n goeie idiee op 'n Vrydag middag nie...  ;)

Scooterbike, I had exactly the same thing happen to me on my 2009 WR.

Almost feels like a fuel problem the way it affects the bike.

It is the stator for sure, get the biggest stator you can find, because as soon as the battery power drops off it slows down your bike. Some kind of weird feedback which somehow affects the sparkplug. I had an HID light and that was what was affecting mine, along with the fan.


BTW is your old fairing up for grabs? I would be interested. :)

Charged the battery and now the problem seems to be gone. The battery is probably old so will get a new one.

my other fairing is sold already but it will be doing the amageza.

Hmmm, be careful boet. Make sure that stator is charging 13V or more. I changed the battery on mine but after 200km I ended up with the same problem and nearly went out the rally.
