    Seized up 2019

    Just got one of my 2 2019 t dubs back from the 600 mile service and one of them got a tapping noise going on the first ride! Decided to turn around on the forest road I was on and seized up and skidded the back tire! Wouldn't turn over. I'm a mile or 2 from cell service so I let it cool and restarted it. Got a little squeal right at first and squealed a time or 2 more on the way out. It's sitting at the dealer awaiting autopsy Monday. Just thought I'd see what you guys think in the mean time

    1) Wrong oil filter or 2) mechanic forgot to put oil in machine.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Are you still under warranty? Although Yamaha/dealer should cover any potential repairs regardless. Hope it all works out for you. I agree it sounds like oil starvation.
    01 SOLD
    96 SOLD
    89 restored SOLD
    89 (restoration in process)
    05 (restoration in process)
    03 10K miles, decent condition
    04 in great condition

    Definitely full of oil. Oil pump seems to pick up oil looking in the sight glass. Oil did get dark quick. Filter is the first thing I thought, but if that's the case my wife's bike is fine, so who knows. They will cover it warranty or dealer mistake either way, they seem to be stand up guys.

    As far as oil filter goes, that usually causes cam bushing problems right? This seems lower, more like in the cylinder. Noise wise

    I can't imagine there are any incorrectly packaged oil filters left out here that many years later? It would have to be a mistake

    You would be wrong. It is still happening and quite likely happened to you just now! I would insist on being present at the autopsy. And learn how to do your own oil changes!!!!!!!

    I'm more than capable of changing my oil I just gave them the first one for warranty reasons. To be honest I was nervous that I should have done it myself as soon as I dropped it off! Lol. I let the rebates coupons and what not get me in there and I thought hey if I have any problems they'll be the only one who turned a wrench on it! I almost checked the filter before I took it but I wanted to give them no excuses that I did anything!

    I don't think they can deny warranty for doing your own oil change. Unless they can prove you did something wrong.
