My old CB had what was a notoriously weak ignition system so I figured I'd give the Iridium's a chance as it might help the old dog out. Looking back, it may have just exposed that system's shortcoming even more. Perhaps your bike's ignition is hot enough to make good use of them. Kawi obviously thought so.

Been tempted to try them again in the FZ. That bike can eat up a standard plug in about 8k miles.

Started stripping off the crashed parts.

Still moving slow, but made some progress.



Bars took a hit, even with the handguards. Bars are slightly bent, anyway.



Both mirrors are damaged, now. The machine shop hasn't wanted to make me another set. Will try again.



Shifter tip got grinded. Already have the replacement.



Front fender is toast.



Half the titanium footpeg is gone.



Enough for now. More damage to post tomorrow.

I read it's very common with these particular footpegs.

They're factory Yamaha for the YZ series, but they're CAST titanium - so very brittle.

wow, you went down HARD if you bent fatbars

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

Had thick aluminum bash bars bolted to the handlebar ends and to the forks.

Bent those, too.

Trying to pull the front end, so I can install the billet triples.

Not sure how to proceed. May be best to purchase a new ignition switch.

Was going cut a slot in the safety bolts with a dremel, but they're recessed into the ignition. Can do it, but won't be easy. Bolts are locktited in, so would probably need an impact driver, as well.

Center punch and drill the heads off? I did that on an old Kawasaki, not sure if the Yamaha has hardened bolts or not. once the heads are drilled out you can get some vise grips on the shank.

Edit:You could also use a screw extractor, same sort of thing but no vise grips needed.

People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.

I did this a couple of weeks ago on an FZR triple, and an FZS. Centre punched, pilot drilled a little and then 1/4" on one til the heads came off and 5/16" on the other (one had M6 & one M8). Then went to wind nuts onto what was left to tack on but they were loose and wound out by hand.

Striving to remain dynamic in an ever-evolving environment and shit like that.
