Sweet! Just take your time and step up the hole size only as big as necessary for clearing the stems, otherwise it'll look funny. I also added washers as spacers to one of them to even out the orientation. One of them sticks out further than the other by design, and I didn't like the lack of...
They're a little pricey, but offer superior protection over Shogun style.
Little known fact: on the insides of your fairings, Yamaha put a little molded bullseye icon where you're supposed to drill with your paddle bit. ;)
Anyone with the FZ6R Service Manual .PDF, please verify this with me:
Page 5-15 indicates the torque spec for the camshaft sprocket bolts to be 1.5 ft. lbs.
When I saw that, I was like "Well that's WAY too loose.." and so I referred back to Page 5-9, which is the general blow-out illustration...
Thank you very much for the kind words. Helping my fellow Fizzer riders is exactly why I started my channel 5 years ago, and it’s great to hear when it really helps someone out! Thanks for watching!
Could you post a pic of your entire cockpit from above? I'm curious as to your clip-on orientation with the wheel straightened.
Actually, n/m... looking at your pics again, I see what you have going on. You didn't do anything wrong. My levers hit at that same point on the fairings, but...
I can tell you I didn't get new grips... just measured and drilled the control holes to match what was on the factory bars and then swapped all the factory stuff over to the Woodcraft bars. Just be sure to take your time; measure twice and drill once.
I have an 09 model that just turned 56k miles, and I've never adjusted the valves. My bike also barely wants to idle on cold starts during cooler temps. I'm slowly collecting all the stuff needed to complete the job. I'd say if you've gotten your fill of the bike's life, leave it alone. If you...
Yes Sir, I most certainly will. It'll be a little while for me to piece together all the stuff... looking at like $280 to get the shims, sprockets, chain, gaskets, etc.
But, once I knock it out I'll post up the results.
Nevermind guys, I found Motosport.com allows you to search for shim kits by bike model, and the only result it gives for the FZ6R is 7.48.
So, if you were wondering the same thing, there ya go... 7.48 OD shims is what you need.
Getting ready to turn 56,000 miles and am gonna finally go ahead and perform the bike's first valve adjustment. Have a couple seconds of clatter on startup, too, which according to various R6 vids on YouTube, likely points to a stretched timing chain and possibly worn out chain...
2009 "Raven" model. I'm the third owner. Was purchased new in 2010 in Golden, CO. I purchased it in 2015 via Craigslist out of Longview, TX with 11,2xx miles for $3,500 cash. Just turned 50,4xx and haven't even had a valve adjustment done yet. 3,000 mile oil changes done religiously with...
Thanks for the bump, Texan. The universal silence pretty much answers my main question.
I'll avoid the timing advance mod until I can pony up the cash for a valve adjustment... just need to figure out the best place here in Waco to get that done.
Now, as for dropping a tooth in the front, oh...
I'll be turning 50,000 miles on my 2009 FZ6R soon. Engine-wise, I've got an R6 header, Yoshi can, Power Commander PCFC running Marthy's Sport map. I run NGK Iridium IX plugs and 93 octane, always.
I've never had to do anything to this bike other than normal maintenance stuff.
Yeah dude, site is live and the map files are all there for download! :cool:
As for the Advgear maps, am I correct in understanding that the Dynojet speed sensor attachment is required on the PCV in order to run them?
I've got the newer (and simpler) PCFC, so I don't have attachment options.
