2,000 Miles on a Bone Stock Indigo
* Needed to adjust idle at dealer
* Needed to adjust clutch cable at 400 miles
* Poping sound from under tank every once in a while (AIS???)
* Backfiring a lot in the last 200 miles
$200 for service?? You got raped! I paid $57 and thought that was a bit high for an oil change and a look over.
Anyway, I have 3400 miles on mine. Tank vibrates since recall "fixed". Had to adjust idle when new. Adjusted clutch cable about a bunch of times. Broke threaded stud that holds tank bracket to frame and have since replaced at $5.50 a stud. (I got two, for the next time I do it).Custom paint after planter her in a field. My only real complaint is for some reason, I already need a new rear tire [/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
6800 miles since December 2001. No problems! Do my own wrenching and inspecting. Only money I have spent besides bolt on's and toys is regular maitenance ie. oil & filter changes. I have never brought my Warrior back to the dealer for anything, not even the 600 mile check up. Like they know anymore then we do. Please Yamaha Service is a friggin' JOKE! Periodic adjustments are clutch cable free play, idle and brake's, tire pressure (important!) oil level check. I am still running the stock Bridgestones with life still left on them stocker's. No Burnout's, but I ride as hard as anyone here. Only other that has put their stinking hands on my Warrior are the Dyno Tech's <G> My Warrior run's stronger every day. My next adventure will be to put her out of reach with the HOP-UP KIT! Can we say 2200cc! VAROOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!
4000 MILES NO REAL PROBLEMS, NUMEROUS CLUTCH CABLE ADJUSTMENTS, FORGET THE GAS TANK RECALL ,LOST MANY NUTS & BOLTS DUE TO DEALERS POOR ASSEMBLY,SWITCHED DEALERS INSTALLED V&H PROPIPE & PC III RUNS BETTER & BETTER EVERYDAY
10000km [6200miles] since march 28.corbinseat and darkstars boomcan.every thing else stock.No problems with anything on the bike.Just a few minor adjustments.changed oils and lubes myself.Had a knocking sound from about 600 miles but Darkstar repaired that for me.Loose exhaust bolts.Thanks Darkstar.Replaced the rear tire at 5500 miles ,several burnouts.
3400 miles on my red one and never a repair. All services done by ME and the only money invested is in cosmetics, Every day runs better.
My friend that has an indigo ruin a Dunlop rear tire in 2500 miles, He is a 240 pound guy and the tire had 32 PSI when we check it, Now he put a 210 Metzy and 42 PSI, 500 miles on it and just like new
5,000 Miles, bike has Speedstar kit. Normal maintenance and the Speedstar exhaust totally disintegrating every 500 miles...what a piece of crap!!! If you want to go throught the **** that I did though it could pay off. Yamaha is buying me Samson Street sweepers, PCIII and a dyno tuning/custom map. I had to threaten with law suit when the whole exhaust nearly fell off on the highway to Vegas. Now they seem nice as can be, imagine that! I am hearing that because my bike has unfiltered velocity stacks it could mess up my engine any mod suggestions?
5700 mi. No engine, intake, or exhaust mods yet. No problems other than the dealer replacing the rear tire for me and screwing up my belt tension, causing a ticking noise to come out of the primary. Plan on having them fix that when the snow flies. This baby runs! Planning for a PC3, new pipes, drag bars, iso grips and pegs, custom paint. Man, that is gonna cost me... But it will be worth every cent![/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
7800 miles since January ... no problem with the bike. The typical pop, and my front tire is cupping. I also spent about $200+ on the 600 mile service but have been doing the oil change stuff myself. I had to change the back tire at 3800 miles ...
My biggest problems with having the bike have been speed limits, a lack of time to ride, rain whenever I have time to ride, the fact that I have to work which takes time away from riding, the occasional need for sleep.....
All kidding aside, a solid ride with very managable issues that I accept as part of my relationship with the Warrior.
