Well folks, picked up the Red Today, From Speer Yamaha in Passaic, NJ. Great bunch of guys there...you Jersey/NY guys if you have questions on whether your dealer gives you good service, check this well established dealer out. 0:)

First impressions is what a comfortable, good city bike this is. It's peppy, tingles my ass a bit at high revs, but no sweat pulling ahead of Idiot Jersey Drivers.

Main highways here in Jersey like route 17, rt 4, rt 80, rt 46 I'm doing low to mid 70's MPH....no sweat. 5th gear is nice to just pull away from traffic.

Once I switch to tires I can trust, it will be a great mountain road bike up to some nice roads in NY state, and just ring it's Neck

I break in my bikes farily hard, but no real red-lines yet.

Is it me or does looking at the very front of the bike (Red Only) you kinda get a Ducati thing going on ??

When time allows, I'll change that Indonesian Yamaha Oil that's in there, and put fresh 10-40 yamalube, non- synth for the 1st 1000-1200 miles I also slap a STRONG Neodymium magnet on the oil filter to trap all the metal shavings.

First thing under the seat and tail section I manages a tire plug kit, with CO2 canisters, and refill plugs, and gun for the CO2's With ingenuity, you can sneak in a lot of stuff under there.

I'll retire my S1000RR, and keep it in storage cause my Buddy is buying it...Then I'll wait for Fall and see what the manufactures have to offer ?? and back to an A bike, while the R3 is my b Bike.

Ride Safe Guys !!! ;)

I never thought of a magnet on the filter for the shavings.... Fantastic idea!


Thanks!!

Or, will the magnet magnetize the shavings and cause them to stick to sensitive metal parts?

The Magnet is on the Filter Exterior...and these Magnets are SO Freakishly :eek: STRONG they stay on the Filter, But I recently just put a Hose clamp to keep the Magnet from shifting.

Google "KJ Magnets" , and just Youtube "Oil Filter Magnets"

It's such a simple idea that just makes sense. You can YOUTUBE.."Oil Filter Magnets"

The Magnets I get them from....Google "KJ Magnets" I get the large rectangular Magnets that just about go the length of a usual Bike Filter....Iv'e had Magnets on my Car oil filter for years.
