Actually my neighbor who works for a Yamaha dealership was given this bike to enjoy for a week while a friend of his was away. I heard him fire it up this morning and the starter is grinding bad. He lives up on a hill with a steep driveway and when he got to the bottom, the bike died. He came over and asked if he could stash it on my FLAT driveway for the day. He said the ecu was going crazy and the bike is now dead. Of course I had to jab him and point to my Kaw and Honda in the garage that are running today. This is a beautiful bike and I guess the owner owns a performance shop of some kind. The engine has been completely tweaked out, heads, pistons etc. Supposed to be very fast...................when it runs.
