Yamaha have held their hands up and are supplying another new front disc under warranty.

Have any of you X-max 300 guys changed your standard seat to the comfort seat and if so is it worth it?

Mines still on the standard seat, the 2017 ones had a different seat to the 2018 the comfort seat looks very like the 2018 seat but I have never
sat on one.

My replacement disc is feeling a bit odd now...took it to be checked; they rode it and checked it with a dial gauge; took the caliper off and greased the pins and it's perfectly fine. We agreed to mutually keep an eye on it; there's a year left on the warranty yet so no problem really.
Yes a trusted dealer - Hammonds in Cirencester.

There must be something for it to affect just a few bikes, but it's a case as you say keep a eye on it
I wondered about the wheel being true but that is ok now wondering if the caliper could be a tuch
out of true but plenty of warranty left so it's wait n see.

Had a good look at mine today and all looks well, caliper is free to move as are the pistons,
every thing seems true, only thing I did notice was that the holes as in drilled disc holes
have very sharp edges, being very gentle with it till it beds in, interested in how yours goes on.

I do the round britain rally, just had the results there were 249 enterents mostly on big turers
and trail bikes, my Xmax 300 was one of 3 entered one of which was in position 1 not bad for
a 300 scooter, any of the other 2 riders on here?

You know, I STILL can't get the front panel off my 300 to get at the battery...
Yes, I'm doing it exactly as per the handbook and YouTube videos;
Yes, I've been working on bikes for 50+ years;
No, there are no hidden screws but the damn thing just Will NOt come away, no matter how hard I heave on it, in whatever direction.
It may have to be the ultimate humiliation of getting the dealer to do it... :-(
