Hey guys! New to the forum, hope this is the right spot for the question... I recently acquired a 2015 Suzuki RMZ 250, with less than 4hrs on it. Unfortunately it didn't come with the additional EFI couplers (rich/lean). I want to purchase them but having trouble finding them. On the "ELECTRICAL" schematics for the bike, I believe number 18 is the part location, but not sure if that is just one of the two additional couplers that are supposed to come with the bike? Or is it both if I order that part number? Is that even the right part? I can't find a description of the parts, and this forum seems to be the best source of information, so fingers crossed that you guys understand and can point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance!!
Hello. Newbie here to the community. My buddy bought a 2014 suzuki rmz450 a few weeks ago and we took to the trails this past weekend. Well it ended a few hours after we started with him having no 3rd gear and eventually it would slide the rear tire when third gear was selected. I tore it down and found the shift drum broken and the shift fork beat up pretty good. Also most dogs have pretty good wear on them. Anyone know if this is a common problem or if there are updated parts to prevent future failures? I did some searching and found info about the hammerhead +10 shifter and detent springs, but nothing like this. Thanks in advance. I'll attach pictures.

Bike will be on eBay starting tonight at 8:30 central... eBay item number: 222615136106
This bike was taken in on trade for a Mustang I had. I have driven the Bike, no problems mechanically, runs out in all gears great. I have pulled an Arkansas VIN check, the last reported mileage was on 8/23/2012 with 5500 miles reported with no accidents, flood damage or any other derogatory information.
Nice dependable Low mile YAMAHA YZF600R Street bike with less than 12K miles. Starts easily every time. Bike has a clean Arkansas title with no liens. Tires are at around 70%, brake pads are around 50% remaining.
Everything on the bike is working except for the left rear blinker is out and the speedometer cable or pickup on the hub has gone bad so the speedameter needs repaired. The cable in only $14.00 on eBay and a new Hub sensor / pickup is around $50.00 I just have not gotten around to fixing it.
Cosmetically the bike looks very nice from 10 feet, up close you can see where it was lade down, some of the plastics were damaged somewhat. I have many more pictures, contact me and I will send them to you, this add only allows 12 pictures. I will be adding a walk around video.
