  1. I use a large car/lorry battery that I had to slave to the bike. I normally take the car/lorry battery down to the house every three months and charge it up. I've used this set-up for a several years now with no problem. Can go for a month/8 weeks without using the bike and it will still start. If I ever need to change the car/lorry battery, I think I'd get a leisure battery (caravan) as they don't seem to suffer as much from discharge/recharge problems. I have a standard SAE lead connected to the bikes battery, picked up another which I lengthened and fitted crocodile clips that I use to connected to the car/lorry battery. Its then just a simple job of plugged/unplugging the SAE leads when you want to use the bike.
  2. Yes it's blade type connections so no need to mess with the wiring. I fitted one last year, sorry no pictures. I think I took the old horn off complete with the mounting bracket. Mounted the Denali back on using the original bracket and not the one supplied in the box. I also shaved a bit off the horn mouth as I felt it was quite close to the brake hose near the top of the forks. I supose it will depend on how you angle it......
  3. Thank you, looks like I got it right without needing the instructions 🙂 Unusual for me!
  4. I've read that drilling holes in the baffle tubes of the db killer helps increase the noise. I'm sure a quick search on the web will give you ideas. Sorry didn't want to link another sites url. 🙂
  5. It the same process as removing the petrol tank, you just don't go that far... This link should help, it an earlier model but it's identical
  6. It's used to supply power to the heated seat (if you buy one) it's exactly the same as the Aux one behind the screen. Look at the video in this link. 7.20 in you'll see the lead from the seat and where it plugs in.
  7. The 4 pin plug is the OBD reader plug, not an Aux plug. Their is a two pin Aux plug under the seat, it's buried deeper in the wiring. Mine was on the right hand side between the battery and towards the seat locking bar. As for heated gear, I go either directly to the battery or as you said a power block of some sort.
  8. Are you saying you need to force the case onto the lower brackets? Do you have the rubber blocks on the right way around? Sounds silly but i was told they are slightly tapered and need to be fitted the right way around.
  9. I like the plug mount idea, I just might have to borrow that 🙂
  10. I cleaned and checked the adjustment on my chain yesterday. Pushing the chain sideways to see if it would hit the tyre just didn't enter my head to check for..... I know there's no damage to the tyre, I regularly check that for cuts, nails and such things. Are you saying yours has been rubbing?
  11. To answer my own question.... It may help someone else in the future.... The heated seat switch fit's on the front of the bike opposite the power out-let plug. It doesn't pick up power from the front accessory plug, it's just a switch with a long lead. You need to run the long lead from the front of the bike to the seat where it plugs into one of two leads coming out of the seat. The second lead coming from the seat plugs to a power connector as per the video esseci59 kindly linked in the above post. I know what I'm doing this weekend 🙂
  12. Thanks. I was after info on tne switch cable run, from the front of the bike back to where? Does it pick up power from the front of the bike? I haven't got the seat yet, should be here by wednesday. Once i see the seat wiring it might all be a bit clearer. Was just hoping someone had the fitting instructions ..... Thanks.
  13. Bit of a long shot........ I'm looking for the installation instructions for the Yamaha comfort heated seat. I was lucky to pick up an unused shop demo set on eBay for a third of the price of new. Unfortunately no user/installation guide. If any one has the instructions, would you mind scaning them and post them up, or private message them to me. Many thank. Mick
  14. Not changed the exhaust on the GT, its only three weeks old 🙂 I did change it out on my previous bike, a MT07. Same exhaust, Akrapovic. Found a similar price differenct between the official Yamaha and none Yamaha supplied Akrapovic exhaust. I was also told if you run without the cat your not euro4 compliant. Your on dodgy ground with the warentee and I'm also unsure if you need a remap. If you run with a cat then all is covered ok.
  15. This is the same one I've got. Used it a couple of times with no issues on a friends bike while out in France. Very happy with it.
