I'm using Firefox latest edition.  It downloads but is unreadable gibberish of symbols.  Maybe Google is my new destination.

These are linking to PDFs through either google docs or diplodocs so should be fine - would be interested if other people are having issues.
The first one on the list (XZ400 Fiche) is in Japanese so you would need Japanese fonts to display properly

Roro,
Just finished looking at the service Manual in 3 languages and it downloaded in about 5 secs with g-mail account using my i-pad 2..

It's the web site for the manuals that is my problem.  It states clearly it is for WINDOZE systems.  I downloaded a manual but can't read it.  I can look at the parts fiches though, so that is nice.

roro,

Check out this link for the fiche, same thing you have in the list of resources, but is in a different view (11H).  I think it is more printer friendly and easier to view.  In any case let me know what you think....still a rookie over here.

Can we get these types of invaluable pages stickied or pinned?

Six additions to the Resources list - at the top of this post

Our friend Night Vision sent me copies of Rov Newsletter 9, 10, 11, 12 which I have not seen before.  Thanks NV - it's great to see people sharing this stuff with all the others.

Also added Leather's exceptionally thorough Ignition FAQ - it's also available on his web site http://www.jetav8r.com/Vision/ (http://www.jetav8r.com/Vision/) Also added Electrex's fault finding flowchart.  If you have any stator r/r issues, then go through this first.  Both these are elsewhere on RoV but added here just for completeness

If anyone else has XZ550/XZ400 resources, just send me an email / PM and I'll include it.
If you have interesting paper copies and can't scan them I'm happy to do that and then return them to you.

RoV Newsletter 19 - Newsletter 23
For Visions Only - Parts for sale

These old newsletters are pretty interesting.  There's an english translation of the article on the XZR751G, Yamaha Motor US Racing Mod recommendations, How to stiffen your frame, Using a spare rear valve cover in the front for added horsepower, etc etc.  This sort of stuff is never talked about these days.

Rick each one is just a google drive link so it should work OK on Firefox.
When you say you are getting nothing - what exactly do you mean?

Some of the links give me trouble as Google doesn't seem to like my version of Explorer... :(
Title: Re: New and updated XZ550 and XZ400 resources
Post by: Prophet Of Doom on April 22, 2013, 02:28:30 AM
OK,
I've changed the links so that they don't use the Google Page browser, but they push the document straight to you as a download.  It works on Mac/Chrome, Win7/IE9, but I don't really have any way of checking pre-historic versions of software, or Linux/FFox

Please let me know if it works - if it still gives dodgy results I'll move the files off Google and on to my own web server

I've had a chance to explore some of these links which all seem to work flawlessly for me now. There really is a wealth of interesting and usefull articles, manuals, reviews, ads etc. in there. A rich and thorough library of resources that further adds to the Vision ownership experience. Thank you Roro.  :)

Just added a brochure for the Japanese variant of the vision - the XZ550D.  See the first post in this thread.
The 550D has a rather special colour scheme if you haven't seen it before.

Just added a scan of the Garage Poster that came with some copies of the XZ550 Haynes Workshop manual.  See the first post in this thread - under Service Manuals

A fairly poor original sorry - I think that smear in the middle is blood and I had to scan it in pieces and stitch it.

I printed this out as A3 and it looks cool on the garage wall together with the colour wiring diagram also in A3.  One day I'll get them laminated perhaps.

Title: Re: New and updated XZ550 and XZ400 resources
Post by: Rikugun on November 09, 2013, 10:04:36 AM
Thanks for the upload although I'm a bit concerned about the blood  :o Is this an indictment on Vision maintenance difficulty or did you have to kill someone for the poster!?  ;)

Post by: Prophet Of Doom on November 09, 2013, 06:18:37 PM
@Rick, I changed the way it sent the files so it would be compatible with your Linux / Firefox system.

You probably have the old CD that was being sold, but there's a huge amount of stuff here that was never on the CD - worth having a bit of a browse.  Let me know of any links that don't work and I'll fix them right up.

@Rikugun, The poster came with the blood already on it.  I don't know about you but I've donated at least a pint of blood and a couple of fingernails to my vision quest.  Less now that I have some decent spanners that don't round off and scrape my knuckles off.

I've had a couple more requests for all these manuals, brochures etc on a DVD.  Seems some people have troubles downloading such a large amount of data what with data charges and volume caps etc.

I'll send a DVD out free to anyone who wants it, and even cover the cost of the DVD - all I ask is that you pay postage.

Interesting read and a fun romp through nostalgia.  :) It's funny to see references to older bikes like the Titan and Yamaha TX models.  I wasn't aware of the complaint regarding knees being driven apart by wind due to the tank's shape. I guess I'm too short to experience that particular peculiarity. While not the overall favorite it was nice to see some of it's finer points being appreciated.

Two new resources today.


The first is a scan of the Yamaha Service Manual for the 16R (Australasian market model)  PinholeNZ very kindly sent me the manual to scan for the good of all and I've been sitting on it for a while because it's quite  job scanning 500+ pages.  It's worth a look even if you have a US model - if only for the jetting differences between 16R and US models.  Thanks PinholeNZ


XZ550 (11R) Service Manual EN,FR,SP  (https://docs.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B5rMo73UpmHbNmNSUFpDOHBLWDA)


The second is an XZ550 article from classic & motorcycle mechanics as late as 2004


Neither Fish Nor Fowl - Classic & Motorcycle Mechanics No 202 Aug 2004 (https://docs.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B5rMo73UpmHbeThEMDE3X0ZfbVE)

Well, maybe one or two flattering remarks. You might not have noticed them at the end after being bludgeoned throughout the article with all the faults. I was surprised they praised the bars despite many on this site (or a very vocal minority?) seeming to hate them.

This review picked up on something I haven't seen in many other reviews that being the proclivity of the engine temp gage to flirt with the red zone.
