Totallyamaha.com would like to announce the renaming of our Tech Section. This change is to pay tribute to the life of Mike Broda (Turk). Mike was a founding member of Totallyamaha.com and helped countless members with advice, technical support and general sled knowledge. Mike was always willing to share his "secret" clutch setups with anyone who asked. He never asked for praise or money for anything, he was just happy to see fellow Yamaha riders get the most out of there sled. For Mikes lifetime contribution and dedication to this website, it gives us great pride to introduce our new tech section name. TURKS TECH CORNER.

Rest in peace Mike. You will never be forgotten.

That's a really nice gesture Tom, and you know how much it would have meant to Mike.

well it is nice to see all the responses so far.Totallyamaha is more then just another site to go to to help and learn.TY is one big family and when we lose a member of the family..we all step up.I as well as most will agree on here that this site is the best you are ever going to find out there.People like Mike has made a whole difference on here for many members.It is for people like Mike that this site remains strong and healthy compared to many others.I find that people on here actually do care and some of the condolences really say it all.Mike was a trooper and I for one was blessed to have known and met him in person.Lets all learn from Mike's ability to help others without compensation and even make this site better and stronger..Mike I am sure would of wanted it that way.I for one spend a lot of time on here as do a lot of guys...lets help each other and not forget how Mike helped a lot of guys.Lets carry on the tradition of Turk and his dedication to the sport..
Again we are all gonna miss Turk on here..
