    Yeah, was bummed I had no shrimp for the barbie. Not sure the epoxy smoke would be the right seasoning...

    Yamaha has that quilted foil stuff around them. I thought I kept it but ??? Will probably order (at least look at on the parts fiche) one to see how to adapt. Checked the wire harness - US$550 from dealer. Found one new in box on eBay for 200 last night and hit the order button.

    Looks like a new airbox is in order. I found melted stuff yesterday during a quick look over. Will know more today.

    some of my favorite type!

    I must have been Ozzy in a previous lifetime. I can operate a right hand drive car, shift with my left hand know “tight left, wide right”. I’d make a great postal carrier - feel right at home in the left side of a car.

    I’ve also developed the ability to understand alcohol lace Ozzy speak, which is an art of its own.

    One day I’ll be down there, annoying Talon and family. I owe him that.

    It's probably not much consolation but it could have been much worse. A fellow I know off a car forum over here had the smoke get out of his wiring loom on a test start and take out the car and everything else in his shed. Fire does not leave much useful stuff behind sadly.

    Fire bad.
    Over the years I've seen small ones, like I had, to fully engulfed, “Break out the hot dogs and marshmallows! We got us a fire!”

    Last one I saw was a turbo RZR out here on one of my favorite dirt trails last year (maybe two ago?). Four people standing there, looking very sad, staring at a smoldering pile of melted plastic and metal.

    They never end up good.


    Parts list ordered yesterday:
    New OEM cam cover gasket
    New Donaldson air filtration box (shit)
    New PowerCommander Auto Tune unit module (shit, shit)
    eBay Yamaha Nytro main wire harness (oh boy, more wire work! shit, shit, shit)
    eBay Yamaha Nytro efi harness (plug-n-play)
    eBay Yamaha Nytro coil packs (three for $99 versus new for $115 each)
    eBay Yamaha Nytro OEM header heat shields, upper & lower. If Yamaha can put the exhaust directly under a plastic seat and not have fires something says they did it right.

    I see other crispy wires - expect them to be part of my harness assembly.

    Gonna dive in fully today and start cleaning and disassembling. Anywhere the extinguisher powder hit hot stuff it seems to have turned into a sticky goo - think very thick honey. Fortunately it appears to be water soluble.

    Pulled stuff off. What a mess!









    Made new supports for the hood stand offs. It think just the 1/4" rods sticking up with the ability to flex around lead to part of the failure of them. I also think I may not have had the rear mount completely tight (there's SO much stuff in here, knowing and keeping track of what's been tightened, especially months ago, is a bit of a bitch). These spread the load out a lot better. I'm also redoing the front mounts. The 3/8" (9.5mm) bar that I used looks to be on the weak side as I had one piece actually snap.



    So it's wait for parts and then start more disassembly so I can start putting stuff back in that's not toast.

    Bummer deal, I'm not sure how hot it got, but service temps for aluminum aren't very high. I would check your intercooler fins on the bottom and make sure they are all still good as well.

    *D+am Richard. That sucks
    My stock heat shield is two piece formed al with some sorta insl attached to the Al shields on the inside. I added a 1/8 pannel from the top of the header to about 4'' above the head to keep some of the heat away from the coils & wires and other fun stuff. It works but man them yammies through off the heat
    The question is not if its gona roll. Its when ..

    That be some kind of church cruzzer or commuter bike thingy ?

    Man that's hard to look at. At least the valve cover didn't catch, that could have been game over.
