Re: I need Help! New bike to buy!

These were the 2 bikes that I was looking at when I bought my first bike. I got the FZR more because it was available and less expensive at the time. CBR600 F2 Pros: - already has the 17" rear wheel. - less known electrical gremlins - many parts interchange from the newer CBR line (F3, F4, F4i)...

Re: 91-'92 Upper Front Fairing

You could always just use a different headlight. This one happens to be an OEM Yamaha, just not for the US market.

It is for sale by the way.

Re: Raceseat for FZR 600 92

Moved your post to a more suited section.

The YZR500 tail section is available here - http://www.airtech-streamlining.com/yam ... 001990.htm

But it will require some work to fit properly.

Re: Tacho fuel level error code

I've thought about doing that very thing myself as in theory it should be the same. However, I don't know if it really will work or not as far as the error code goes. I have a thundercat tank sitting in my garage and could wire it up to see if it will solve the issue or not. The bigger problem is th...

Re: Tacho fuel level error code

As far as I know of, you need the switch. But it is just a simple switch so you could add a length of wire and put a push button switch that mounts on the clip-on instead. This would keep things nice and tidy. You could get ride of the switch like the previous owner did. But you end up with the same...

Re: Tacho fuel level error code

That model has a standard switch to turn the fuel reserve on. The switch is located on the left hand side fairing hear the clip-on. If the switch is missing, you should be able to put a switch in or fix the wiring at this location to help with the fuel light. As for fixing the tach error code. The o...

Re: service manuals

they have service information. not the "how to do" service manuals i´m talking about. Hell man, that is all weather or not the person who did the modification wants to do a write up. In terms of just standard maintenance, a lot of the information is the same no matter if it is for a 1000,...

Re: service manuals

They are out there. You just haven't found one yet. The UK Exup site has them as well as a bunch of others.

Re: what engine can i use

Well since they did not make the FZR1000 in 1998, the answer would be no. Any year FZR1000 up to 1994 (when they stopped production) will work. The 1997 YZF1000 (Thunderace not the R1) will work but will take a little adjustments to fit the frame exactly. It also really needs the CDI, Wire harness a...

Re: AAAAAA Help!!!!

Sorry, I have to agree that this is a little fishy. Not saying it isn't legit, but Ive seen scams like this before. And anyone who owns a Yamaha knows how easy it is to bypass the ignition switch on these. OP - If you replaced the switch and can't get it to turn on then obviously there is another el...

Re: Wiring Looms

There was also a varient that had a plug to attach the right side headlight and turn signal via a sub wire harness to the main harness while the left side was a permanent part of the main harness.

Re: Anyone have the progressive suspension shock on their bi

Rebound damping is all. If you are going after one of these, do not buy one new. Seriously, you can buy a much better shock for the money.

Re: hmm...help?

Just out of curiosity, did you check to see if anything got into the air box to block the passage? Someone had a small animal build a nest in their air box once.

Re: Anyone have the progressive suspension shock on their bi

I did. And didn't really care for it. It works a little better than the factory shock, but that was about it. In terms of suspension options goes, if you can't get a Fox, Ohlins, or Penske then the Progressive is a better option than stock. But I had to order mine which took 4 weeks and it was over ...
