Morning all, I hope everyone has a great day.

I for one am counting down the days until this month is over and behind me.
I hope it goes as fast as last month did.

Question Of The Day

Hello everyone,

I figured I'd go ahead & get this particular question done & over with, since the subject matter may or may not bother some people. Then, we will drop it & discuss much happier subjects for this month!

QOTD...
(Everyone has a right to their opinion, so please respect it!)

In YOUR Opinion...
Do you think we'll celebrate Christmas & 2013, OR will all life on earth & the World end as predicted?


In my opinion, I think we will celebrate Christmas & 2013!
The end of life on earth & the World is just a scam & nothing but a crock of S**T!!! Really... Who come's up with this stuff?!

AND, if I'm wrong...May God take me quick & painlessly.
Because for those few that do manage to live through it, I feel sorry for them. No matter where you are or what your doing - when HE says "It's time!"...it's time & he'll provide a differrent way to bring you home!

I think that the earth has millions of years to go. With or without people.
Of course if people would face reality we might be able to keep humanity alive for a very long time.

Well as you know I feel if there is a god he has a evil sence of hummor and I am his favoret target, like a kid with a magnifying glass and I'm the ant. Nothing goes my way so looking at if from the end of the world side, cool it's over, no hope for something better. If it's not the end of the world then I still have hope for something better. So no I don't think the world will end that would end all gods fun if he is real. WOW guess I have that holiday depresion you hear about but think I"m allowed. So I guess I think you should celibrate each holiday as they come, more drinking days that way woohoo. Think I need to go for a ride have a great day everyone....................

Since you asked for an opinion, I'll give you mine. Life will go on after the 21st, and we will celebrate Christmas, and 2013. Now, that my opinion is done, the reason I say that is because God stated nobody will know when He sends His Son back, not even his Son. So, since His Son doesn't know, I seriously doubt the Mayans do.

Jim

Happy Sunday morning all!

I hope everyone is doing well and having a great weekend!

Donna - In response to your "hornet" comment from last month, actually the 2006 R1 did have a special edition made that was yellow and black. However, probably not exactly what you were thinking. I need to take some updated pictures of my bike. Those were taken when I first got it back in 2010. I've done some updates since then and even found and put on the exhaust guards, which aren't in those pictures (but they are on the bike in the race picture).



Sorry to hear it wasn't a fuse. It could be a relay, but I'm surprised that you would have to replace a while fuse box just for that. Normally relays are just small silver boxes inside of the fuse box and are about $20 a piece and you can get them from a dealer or sometimes even a local auto parts store depending on what fuse they are. But you have to be careful and make sure they are the right one. However, if it's not a blown fuse, then I'm guessing it's not a grounded wire because that should have blown a fuse first. So, next step is I would check the kill switch on the handlebar. 1) Are you sure you didn't accidentally hit it? I'm not trying to be a smartazz, but I have accidentally hit it before and if you don't realize it or check it, you don't know why the bike won't turn over or start again, but everything still turns "on" with the key. 2) If the kill switch shows that it is on, I would take it apart and check it. If the bike has been sitting in any kind of weather, it's possible it got corroded inside and it's possible it's turning itself off, which is NOT good. Especially if it happens while you are riding! So, that's one thing to check. Make sure the connections are good and it's not faulty.

While you are at it, make sure both connections at the battery are good and not corroded. Also make sure the battery has a tip top charge. These bikes are VERY touchy when it comes to not having a 90% or better charge to start and run. But most likely it would have turned over (or tried to) when you went to start it. Another likely prospect is the regulator on the bike. When they go faulty, they don't charge the battery and kill it off while you ride. If it killed it enough, it wouldn't have allowed the bike to turn on and/or start. So, see how dead the battery is and then test the regulator. See if you can get a service manual for the bike (eBay, Kawasaki, ZX Forums, etc...) and it should show you in there how to test your particular regulator. I know these go bad R1's kind of often because they are positioned near the exhaust and the heat kills them off.

Anyway, just some thoughts I had on your issue this morning. Hope it helps somehow.

I hope everyone has a great day!
