Well i got up this morning to around 3 to 4 " of snow and its still coming down suppose to change to sleet and rain after noon and refreezing tonight might become a mess.
Yeah..Yamaha likes to put those pick-up coils down around the stator, especially on their bikes like the 650 V Star. They last for about 15 to 20k miles and are a pain to change out. The hot oil tends to cook them over time.A yamaha is bad for the pick up coil going out. 99% of the time, if they don't fire, that is what's wrong with them.
