little help for new guy
guys a fellow skier had had #3 seize on his 03 13r.
his dealer fitted the d plate and chip but he does not run a e.f.i unit as he was told he dont need one .(think its the cause as i ran mega lean without one)
can you yes or no me weather this would have caused a seize,no comp on #3......
he was running yam lube (purple ish colour but now says he runs gold stuf) ..
any input will be good as going to travel a long distance to have a look and spanner for him as he is lost and trust for dealer has gone...

thanks rich i was always under the idea you did need one.. but now i am corrected..
ever heard of yam lube being gold in color.. he says thats the only other other thing that has changed..
just realised ive been talking to you guys to much i even spell color wrong as well ..other half looking over shoulder picked up on it..

thanks i asked him to check and he said its in a yam bottle?????

did he have the bottle filled at a yama dealer or did he purchase this unopened? he may have purchased some other oil ( don't know which would be gold colored ) in a similar bottle otherwise the filled it with the wrong stuff.

The export Gpr's with the d-plates were the 00-02 carbed GPR's.
Hope this helps.
You still don't need a efi controler with a d-plate though!
The only ' (edit, I forgot to put the word gold in) GOLD Yam branded oil I have seen is their 4 stroke stuff. Perhaps that's why it seized!!!

Sounds like he doesn't have a clue as to what oil he's using. 4 stroke oil in a 2 stroke?

but if i can help him out i will as i know many would me on forum if i was in the same position..
he said last night on phone its a yam bottle, and says yam lube,so i went to my local dealers and looked at the 4 stroke engine oil and it sure looks the same at a glance by way of container marking...
he is ringing me again today so we can meet up to have a look...
