Re: levers

not sure of the bar dia you have but i had same problem with FZR600R so i got the lever mounts/master cyl from an 02 R6 and swapped the levers for shorties which are plentiful for the R6 and it all works a treat

Re: FZR600R tickover/ over rev when hot

Basically the carbs and linkages are gummed up and need stripping down, cleaning and relubricating nothing serious just a bit of a 'take your time' job

Re: FZR600R tickover/ over rev when hot

Hi John no I haven't fixed it yet but I have found out what it is and I have got to remove the carbs and strip them down to fix it so it's a job for end of season as it's only over revving for a second or so and only 400ish rpm high it will be fine til oct.
