    Yamaha Saddle Bag Label

    My riding pal lost one of the saddle bag Yamaha labels.  He has a 2014 which are known to fall off.  I told him to re-glue them when he recently bought the bike. Now he is looking for a label.  Any of you happen to have a spare you are willing to sell him??  Thanks.

    Funky Shifting

    As for the clunk into first gear, when I start a ride I start the bike and let it warm up. I shut it down and start up the bike in first gear.

    Tail luggage Rack
