    Clutch Not Fully Disengaging?

    Yikes! Sounds like the previous owner really neglected the bike! Fortunately these engines are solid, so some TLC and some riding should clear out the cobwebs in no time :cool:

    Tail Light Connector

    Thanks so much Jerzee55. I didn't find what I was looking for there, but it got me Google'ing a bit differently and I found them! http://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/Elec__Products/Connectors/090_Connectors/090_connectors.html - the 3 position connector.

    Tail Light Connector

    Hey guys and gals! I bought a brake light modulator from TST Industries and they don't provide a connector that plugs into the stock connectors. Instead they provide you with some connectors and pins and want you to splice their harness into the bike's harness, which I would prefer not to do...

    Clutch Not Fully Disengaging?

    So update on this. Seems like the issue has resolved itself! I'm not sure if perhaps the previous owner didn't ride the bike much (bearing in mind it was the start of the season when I bought it) and so riding it more and shifting up and down a lot has gotten it moving, or whether it was me...

    Clutch Not Fully Disengaging?

    Hmmm...good to know. I think it has been doing it since the day I bought it. The level on the dipstick doesn't seem problematic, but it does seem to be harder to find neutral the hotter the engine is, which would imply increased oil volume due to temperature. Could be it!

    Clutch Not Fully Disengaging?

    Thanks for this Boost. Yeah the cable makes sense to me. The engine oil looks brand new (I've only had the bike for about a month or so) and is full, so I don't think that's an issue (unless I'm missing something?). Yeah normally I wouldn't push the bike in gear. I had it in gear because I was...

    Clutch Not Fully Disengaging?

    Hey guys and gals! Something has been bothering me about my bike and I'm hoping someone can provide some insight. Since taking it over, I've noticed two things as a constant - tapping down or even downshifting is very sticky and sometimes I can't even get it into first gear before stopping...

    '09 FZ6R Jerky When Cruising On Flat Road

    So ended up getting a PC5 and going to a tuner (not in an attempt to fix this). I can't remember exactly his explanation, but he said that what I was experiencing is characteristic of Yamaha because of the way the bike is fuelled. Put the bike on the dyno and for the first time saw how the chain...

    New member welcome thread

    Hey everyone! I've been lurking around in the background reading through threads and doing research for a little while now, but thought I should come out from the shadows and introduce myself :-) I'm Jonathan and I currently live in Vancouver BC. I'm originally from Johannesburg, South Africa...

    '09 FZ6R Jerky When Cruising On Flat Road

    It happens when the running temp is between around 95-105 (I think). No idea about maintenance history - one of the previous clowns (I mean owners) lost it. Previous owner seemed a bit clueless. Only clues that anything had been done is that the chain looked reasonably clean and the engine oil...

    '09 FZ6R Jerky When Cruising On Flat Road

    Thanks for the reply Jerzee55. I kept a close eye on it on my ride today. It only seems to happen when the engine gets very hot, like it does when you're in heavy traffic and not moving much or very quickly. The tach needle jerks up and down with the jerking of the bike, so that's as close to...

    '09 FZ6R Jerky When Cruising On Flat Road

    Hey guys and gals! I'm new on here and a new FZ6R owner. I've noticed some jerkiness while riding when I'm maintaining a constant speed on a flat road. It runs perfectly smoothly otherwise. Not sure if it's the chain? Any help would be appreciated :-)
