Question about Yamaha Road Star Midnight Silverado Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 03 roadstar silverado 1600. I can shift through the gears fine but when i get to the top end i lose momentum and continue to build rpms. I just had my dyna 3000 replace with an oem cdi because of certian issues. After replaced i was driving on the interstate at 80 mph then dropped to 55 while the rpms continued to climb. I replaced the clutch plates and the outer pressure plate and springs i am now able to do 75 but once i hit that speed its finished. Could this have something to do with a bad cdi box? or is it something else?

The simple way to do it is borrow an electric impact gun. (1/2" drive) If you jam something in there you can damage things.

SOURCE: 2005 TTR 125 will not shift into first gear

This is one of those issues that is really tricky to diagnose over the net but would likely take a few minutes to diagnose in person.

When it does drop into gear, does it jump or stall? Will it idle in gear, stopped with the clutch pulled in?

My initial thought is that the clutch is not being fully released (the plates are still in firm contact with eachother).

More than likely, the resolution is a fairly simple adjustment.

SOURCE: problem with the 4th gear shift at 40kmph speed

This is an indian bullet .and belive it or not is not the same as the old English version .Sometimes you are lucky and the conversion is fine but on the odd occasion the plates don't seem to free themselves too easely .try sanding down the pads ,that sometimes does the trick .

SOURCE: How to increase top end speed - 2007 Kawasaki Ninja EX250R

you can change the sprockets.If you go to a 16 tooth front sprocket. two teeth on a front sprocket is like droping 4 teeth on the rear. You could drop 2 teeth on the rear sprocket but a 43 tooth is probably harder to find. the usual choices for front are 14,15,16 tooth.
For the rear they are 44,45,46 tooth

The way to remeber gearing changes is on REAR sprocket is smaller=faster and larger=slower top end.
the FRONT is OPPOSITE to the rear smaller=slower and bigger=faster.
You may have to lengthen or shorten the chain depending whjch way you go.

My 2001 yamaha 1600 roadstar backfires and cuts out just before I shift. It idle fines. it runs good between gears. It cuts out just when it get up in higher rpms, just before I shift.


Backfiring and cutting out liike this is probably a symptom of one or both of the following: too rich a fuel mixture, or too weak a spark. Take your spark plugs and see if they tips look tan or black. If black, your fuel mixture needs to be leaned out. Another possible cause is a dirty and or clooged air filter, which can reduce the air flow into the engine. Take it out, bang the dust and debris out. If it looks really dirty, replace it -- they're cheap. If your spark is too weak, you may also notice a loss of power, especially at higher revs. If none of these seem to be the culprit, have your ignition timing checked.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Sounds like it could be the ECU (electronic control unit); easy to change. I have bought used ones a lot cheaper than new ones and work fine. Your year may be located under the glove box to the right behind panel (my older car was passenger side under the mat). They are easy to change out regardless of location.
