    Code 46 - Bad R/R?

    Yes great job! That sounds like you're on the right track. Make sure your R/R plugs have good integrity.

    FZ6-S2 ABS Fuel/Plugs/Coil issue

    I agree with Gary on the voltage, but you did say Idle charging and you've probably been beating the battery so it might not show a good static voltage. The intermittent drop of the 2 cylinders I'm hearing makes me think there is a fuel injector problem with regard to possible blockage or...

    FZ6 Idle Keeps getting Un-Adjusted (high variations idle)

    That's a 2005. IT could have a bad TPS that was in the recall but was never taken in. Another thing that can cause funny idle behavior is a failing kill switch. Would not hurt to make a jumper to bypass the kill switch to see if the intermittent idle calms down.

    High Beam not working.

    Also, when testing for headlamp voltage, you must start the engine then leave the key in the on position and use the red kill switch to shut the motor off. This way the headlamp relay that provides the headlamp remain energized.

    FZ6 Idle Keeps getting Un-Adjusted (high variations idle)

    Thank you for the update. The TPS was a recall for the 2005 model. Not the 2006. Some countries use the date the vehicle is first registered as the year of the bike so maybe that's why the Yamaha guy said 2006 had the recall problem. I think we've discussed the different possibilities of noise...

    Wierd jerking at idle in gear.

    Funny, I just saw this, this morning. I think it's good mental exercise to listen and be open. No matter how experience I become I acknowledge there is always something new, life or riding will teach me.

    Engine Cutting out randomly

    There are wires soldered at the bottom of the ignition switch assembly. It's important to keep in mind that when working with the ignition wiring you should disconnect the battery. Just the negative lead is all you need to disconnect on the battery. Tuck it away so as not to make accidental...

    Engine Cutting out randomly

    If your engine quits the bike does not lunge forward but your weight does. Besides your kill switch there are a few different issues that can cause the described issues. You could have an open wire in the ignition harness that makes n breaks. It could be the solder connection at the bottom of...

    Also if there is a burnt intake valve on #3 it could explain why you have fuel above the #3 intake. Since the PC fuel controller is responsible for fuel, it would be smart to disconnect it during trouble shooting.
