Re: Is this chain too cheap?

Cheap chain is cheap for a reason...it either stretches (wears actually) like a laccy band or fails....and when it fails it usually does damage and then it is far from cheap.. The shipping is nearly dearer than the chain....does that tell you owt ? lol. 90 horse thru a "suspect" chain is n...

Re: Starting problems

THe rev counter is going haywire too, could this be a problem with the CDI unit?? It goes up to about 8k RPM, then back to zero in a kind of random pattern.. I found this out to be the connection under the tank clean terminals and make sure the plug goes back together fully 5 years later......?????

Re: 1990 FZR600 won't start

In one of your earlier posts you mentioned dropped valve. A more likely candidate is valve adjustment out of spec. This is fairly common on fzr engines and anything over the 35K miles should be checked..owners rarely do them...the bike becomes harder to start and is eventually sold as a non runner t...

Re: Clutch/idle problems

Someone told me ;

The best way to clean pilot jets is with the high pressure gun on the airline.
This blows the jets out of your fingers,across the workshop, never to be found again.
The result is you are forced to buy new jets...which should have been done in the first instance ....lol.

Re: Clutch/idle problems

Hello I'm new to the page and have a few questions if anyone has an answer it would be greatly appreciated. I have a 94 fzr 1000 that's been sitting for a lil over a year after I hit a deer. It still ran until it sat all winter. I've been working on it this summer and have ran into multiple problem...

Re: Clutch/idle problems

k, the clutch cable will probably need adjusting. To do this, slacken the adjuster on the left hand bar completely. take your left fairing off. on the front sprocket cover, there is a big rubber bung, pop that off with a flat head screwdriver. behind that, you'll find a lock nut, and a bolt, undo t...

Re: Front end Chatter

The heavy stock bar ends are more for damping out mid rpm vibration. They are not hard to source, originals are usually cheap and it might be an economical eliminator. They wont stop "chatter" from the forks/wheel/tyre combination. Lead ? bar snakes and damper beads are available but are d...

Re: YZF fuel sensor on FZR trouble

from what i've discovered, the sender uses the fuel as a coolant.. therefore if it's not submerged in fuel, or something of equal viscosity/gravity, then it'll get too hot? Yes...but it is designed to work like that. When no fuel to cool then reserve is emulated.... As it heats ...the bi metal/diod...

Re: 88 FZR1000 Stage 3

Funny you say this kolederacer..... i have just done the valve clearances on my TDM850 and all of a sudden had a rich condition in the 2k to 4k rpm region. Had to adjust fuel heights to get her back running with a nice smooth delivery. In my humble opinion, if you do any head work on a carb bike yo...
