I would just like to echo all the positive comments about John and Economy Cycle.

A few months ago John was kind enough to  leave a lengthy message on my phone recorder about my issues of no spark with my RZ ( yes, I still have a phone recorder). 

His message of information was presented clear and simple for even a novice like me.

Thank you John.

Thanks pdxjim.

Great timing with this article.  I am currently at the point of installing new carbs on my RZ.  I will definitely be reading this more then once.   Extremely informative (at least for me).

Thanks again

OK.  Thanks.

Will Economy Cycle be getting any wiring harnesses for rd400f's?

That a great question.  I check the forum every day and I never have put much thought into the amount of time (time is money) it takes to run it.  My guess is that Mark puts a great deal of his time into it every day.

Anyway, I would be willing to donate.

Great job!  That must make you feel real good.  As a father of four, I know it is not easy to get youngsters off their games and doing things that will be more applicable for their future.  In addition, the time with them is invaluable.

Kudos again.

Yep, that is one hell of a "Yamaha".

I had a similar problem with my Daytona.  I got stuck in 2nd gear.  Then struggled to get it back into 1st gear wear it got stuck for good.  I pulled the right side case off.  I noticed one of the sprockets lost a tooth.  I found the tooth.  It was wedged in just the right place.  It would not allow the gear shift mechanism to do its thing.    I removed it.  Luckily I had a back up spare parts engine and was able to replace the sprocket that had the broken tooth.  Everything was fine after that.  Until, I blew the engine zooming home from work. 

FYI- I am far from being a mechanic.  Maybe this might help.

Good luck.

Sorry to hear about your situation.  I concur with your karma comment.  In Hawaii we call it "bachi" (basically the same as karma).  "Bachi is a bitch".

I am glad you made it through the situation physically unscathed. Thanks for bringing MCRider to my attention. I will definitely watch it.  Riding in Honolulu can be a challenge with the constant traffic congestion.

Thanks again,

Thanks again Mike.  Also, thanks for the few extras.

This bike is not mine.  Pretty clean bike.  For me, I would go with another seat.
