  1. I'm about to sell my '97. It's been a daily commuter, 46,xxx miles but still runs great.
  2. I bought the wrong damn set and these have been sitting in my study for three months. Too late to send them back so the first one to PM me gets them. You just need to pay shipping, how does $8 sound for Priority USPS or I can ship them with your online form or shipping account. This is kit 22-51379 for 99-06 birds.
  3. According to the troubleshoot document I was using, the three leads from the Stator need to be over 50Volts and consistently the same - they did not give an upper range. Yes, I was getting 69 Volts from each lead. Someone pitch in if that is too high.
  4. Thanks for the replies guys. I broke out the voltmeter and you were dead on, at idle the charge was 15V but spiked up to 19V with higher RPM. I removed the R/R and tested the three leads coming off the stator, a consistent 69V out of each at 500RPM. According to what I've read it seems the problem is the R/R. I have an R1 part on there and guess I'll find another. Thanks, Peter
  5. I've done some searching but haven't found any threads on this particular issue. Over the past year my Bird has killed two batteries and just yesterday I purchased a third. They seem to die slowly over a period of months by simply getting weaker and weaker until they no longer will turn the bike over. As soon as they seem a bit weak I've put them on a trickle charger overnight with no luck. When finally dead they are a bit "swollen" upon removal but I can't seem to track down the problem. The two batteries I killed were Yuasa YTX12BS There are no electrical leaks when the bike is turned off and when running the bike is charging at 15 Volts. I have NOT installed a voltmeter to see what is happening at different RPM's and figure that is probably a good place to start. Replaced the RR with one from an R1 about three years ago. Bike is a 1997 with 46,000 miles. I commute on it daily approximately 8 miles each way. Any ideas? Thanks, Peter
  6. Back in 2005 I participated in the Spiegler group buy and never installed the lines. I was just too damn busy, sue me. Last week I decided to strip the bike down for some major service/cleaning and figured it was time to put these lines on. Trouble is, the package doesn't seem to come with any sort of installation instructions showing what the labels on each line correspond to for the OEM lines. I found a thread posted by Warchild about the install but the links to the photos don't work anymore. There is a reference to a manual, does anyone have one or know where I can get one? I mostly need help knowing which lines go where, as they are different enough from the OEM lines that I can't match them up exactly. Thanks in advance. Peter
  7. So far I've had a couple of test drivers and one kid who wanted to low ball me. It'll sell, I just need to be patient.
  8. I'm selling this car to hopefully get something a bit bigger. This thing is a blast to drive but with two kids and a big dog it just sits in the garage most of the time. Here are the specs: 2005 Mazda 3 Hatchback 5-door wagon under 33,000 miles White with black interior 4 Speed Automatic Transmission with Sport Shirt AM/FM Stereo in-dash CD Cruise control, intermittent wipers, steering wheel controls 17" Aluminum Wheels Air Conditioning, power windows, power mirrors, power locks, alarm New set of Alpine Premier tire chains for those troublesome Seattle snow storms Like I said, this car has been living in a garage out of the elements and is in near perfect condition. I'm asking $12,500 but will listen to offers. This is in the Seattle area. Here are some pictures.
  9. Aw shit. Hey Joe, you want to sell it back to me for the same price?
  10. Oh I have the map, the challenge I had is using it. There is a license issue I just can't seem to get around.
  11. After reading the great reviews of the Mio310X Digiwalker I went out and bought one. I really like this thing but it has dawned on me that I never use it, and when I do want one, I'm up in Canada where this does not work. Mio keeps saying Canadian maps are pending but I don't want to wait. If you want one of these, barely used and shipped in the original box let me know. $100 plus shipping and it is yours OK, it's gone now. :icon_snooty:
  12. UPDATE - The Heet didn't do a damn thing so I unbolted the gas tank and, low an behold, the vacuum line had fallen off. Fuck, a flashlight and the tool kit would have saved me $96. Once I reconnected the tube it fired up and ran perfectly. Hindsight is 20/20.
  13. Did you tell them that you are a special rider? Sorry, I couldn't help myself. I knew I was going to hear that one, even my Father in Law said it. First of all, thanks for all of the replies, you guys have helped point me in the right direction. Tonight I'll dig in after work. :icon_clap: Someone who rides here regularly told me to try a can of Heet in case I just picked up some water. It is a problem around here this time of year. I think I'll do that first before taking the tank off. The tow cost me $96 to my garage, I'll check out the AMA program and I guess I should call State Farm and see what they would charge to add it to my policy.
