    I shelved the bike for the winter, so never responded with the results. Last week I got the bike out, bought a new AGM battery, and the bike fired up immediately which no weird lights, sounds, smells or actions. Went for a 30 minute ride: No issues whatsoever. Conclusion: Battery was fully charged but lacking in CCA or something. New battery resolved all issues. Thanks, everyone!

    FWIW and to further cloud the issue, my '01 did not have an o2 sensor, I know that for a fact. I don't believe 49 state 2002's did, either. CA bikes are a different story.

    It is a great price and I thought of getting it but can't find instructions on hooking it up to my 97. 😉 Someone should grab this.

    I found a place local that has ethanol free gas. This is a good opportunity to pull the tank, empty it and start running good stuff

    Ahh. You said it was "on for normal running light" and I assumed that meant it was normal light output on the running light. Dimly lit would indicate a loss of ground, and I'll bet the right rear was also dimly lit but there's no reason you'da thought to look at it. $80 seems steep to me. When I see stuff like this I wish I could live near everyone that has a small easily cured problem, that's the kinda shit I fix in my driveway for a beer.....and since it's my driveway I usually end up supplying the damn beer. Maybe I should rethink my business approach.

    Almost positive they lied to you and it was the power connection to the turn signal filament side, most likely just the contact in the bulb socket needed a little tweak or cleaning. If the ground was bad you'd have no light, or both filaments would light very dimly if the circuit allows it to pull ground through the rear turn signal.

    Come on guys. There isn't much action in the garage and some look forward to mechanical discussions without the drama. Maybe you guys can ignore each other in the garage for the rest of us.

    Nothing? Come on, that's blinker fluid.

    What Red said. My '01 is non-california and non O2/non catalyst. Pretty sure the O2 and cats go together, the O2 is likely needed to keep the cats efficient.

    I don't believe that's true when it comes to the fuel injection. 99 and 00 are essentially the same. My PC3 works for those years only, and modifies the signal from the ECU to the injectors. The PC2 actually modified the signal from the sensors, to which the ECU then sent the appropriate signal to the injectors. Since the 2001 and later has an O2 sensor (i.e. feedback), Dynojet had to go back to modifying the input sensor signals, which is why it plugs into the ECU, like the old PC2. However, if you have a way to (electronically) delete the O2 sensor from the ECU, I don't see why my PC3 wouldn't work for the later years.

    Tri flow is at any hardware store. I had never seen Houdini before. It was a recomended product by a larger local lock / locksmith shop. They recommend using very little tri flow after cleaning with Houdini. I had a couple times last year, where I didnt think that I would be able to refuel. I feel much better now. Of course the Ninja may require more effort. Her boyfriend seems to be good for her. But some of his mechanical efforts concern me.

    OP edited to include compatible year models. 99 and 00 only.

    Carbs are not that complicated and even more so when there is only one, you are missing something.

    Pretty sure the PC3 listed here will work on your '00, but verify. The one I have, also a PC3 USB, most likely won't. I just started the research on them and previously had no idea there was more than one PC3 model for the XX.

    The whole destruction event happened in only 2 seconds, obviously there were unimaginable forces and temperatures going on PLUS this is a totally unique super special motor with the most special OEM production line titanium rods Yamaha ever put into a production line motor; there is no way we'll never know why it happened. Hell, it's a miracle it didn't lead to a black hole opening up and swallowing the track.

    Slapper, Oscar, and I get together in Southern California. A lot of beer and whisky is consumed. The ghosts of both Tomek's mom and Obama visit us in our sleep. We wake up horrified, in tears, and start drinking again. We call this, "Tuesday."

    Good eye my young Padowan. Those Splines would worry me more than the Sprocket Teeth because they are fuuucked uuppp. Hopefully the Designers of the bike (them little Jap Fuckers) made sure that the Countershaft Splines are considerably harder that the Sprocket. If not things could be ugly on that bike.
