My friend has an 05 v-star with 32000 km and just had a third final drive installed. The first one quit just outside of Flint Michigan at 7000kms. We were on our way to the cottage on Labor Day weekend.Lucky to be in the right lane with a paved shoulder. The bike was still under warr through Yamaha Canada. When she approached Yamaha Canada they said they could not help her as she was out of the country and the warr was not applicable out of the country.So $1000 later and a week out of commission they got her bike back to her.

She went in to get the bikes oil change at 12000kms left the dealer here in London Ont got about 1km down the road and the final drive quit again. Was quoted $800 to have it repaired again. She sent a letter to Yamaha (President) explaining the circumstances and was this time helped Yamaha installed a new rear end at no cost to her.Last week she took her bike in again for a new rear tire and oil change routine. Was told she should not ride the bike out of the shop until the rear end was replaced once again. The manager called Yamaha and explained this was the third rear drive at 32000Km Completely unacceptable. She was told that the bike rear drive would be repaired once again at no charge to her as it seems to be a bad seal that has caused this problem.

She loves her v-star650 very much and the bike fits her well, but her confidence in the bike and in Yamaha has been shaken. I am hoping for her sake this issue has been put to rest. I hope this may help anyone with similar problems. T.R.London Ont

When do i shift gears on my 2007 suzuki sv 650s?

I just bought one of these myself. It's a tough call to say really. First gear sucks it, you need to get out of first really as soon as you are moving a little bit. From there, I sort of play it by ear if you here to strong a rev, shift up or down depending on if you need to slow or speed up.

Cant play music on your palm treo 650?

Yes, you can. Some Treo 650s come with the app "P tunes". You can use this, TCPMP (Core media player) or other Media players to do this. There are three way to hear your music. You can: use the internal speaker, use a 2.5mm phone headset, or get a 2.5mm to 3.5mm jack converter. Into this converter, you can plug any normal headphones.

What is the gas mileage for the 2006 Suzuki SV - 650s?

Your gas mileage will vary depending on your riding style and habits. For example, I have got 250 kms from a tank with conservative driving on backroads. (250 kms from fill-up until the fuel light started flashing). I have also had as little as 180 kms on an aggressive ride with lots of stops. so anywhere in that range. the tank on the 2006 sv650s is 17.5l, but a realistic fillup would be 16l.

What is stronger Hydrocodone 10-325 or 10-650?

Both doses have the same narcotic value of 10mg which is the strongest; however, the other # is your tylenol ratio. The 650s have more tylenol so to be honest you want to stick with the 10-325 so they will be easier on your liver. Extended tylenol use can severely damage your liver.

How did Islam become the religion of Afghanistan?

Answer 1The Afghan people followed Islam when they got convinced as to Islam's authenticity, logic, and morals.Answer 2Afghanistan (especially Western Afghanistan) was once part of Greater Persia, Khorasan, and Khwarezm. These provinces came under the influence of the Islamic Caliphates as early as the 650s C.E. In the Islamic Caliphates, being Moslem opened many economic and political doors for people. Therefore the Afghans who did not have a very strong attachment to their animistic traditions prior to being exposed to Islam, converted to Islam relatively quickly.
