    2005 FZ6 Fairings

    Add a chain to the list. I'd be surprised if it did well during the bike's long slumber

    2005 FZ6 Fairings

    I am the impulsive one..... Gary is the voice of reason :) Gary makes an excellent point. As a RiderCoach, the most peculiar students I have ever seen are the ones who take the class, learn well, excel in the evaluation, then turn down the DMV card that entitles them to a motorcycle...

    2005 FZ6 Fairings

    The forks are in the front, extending down from the handle bars to the front wheel. These are R6 forks..... The rear has a single coil-over shock under the seat extending down to the swingarm. The pic below is the Ohlins that @Gary in NJ put on and I followed suit. If you look at the pic...

    2005 FZ6 Fairings

    Not sure which piece you are referring to. Here is a link to a really good parts breakdown. There are some good on-line places to get parts, and I use PartZilla a lot. https://www.partzilla.com/catalog/yamaha/motorcycle/2005/fz6-fz6st FYI even though I have an 05, the swingawm is from an...

    2005 FZ6 Fairings

    So when it comes to mods, let me toss my 2 cents in. I agree with Gary. I have replaced plastics on the bike a few times. Some were broken when I bought it, some got busted in 0 mph drops, and others when I had a low-side crash last summer after riding over some spilled diesel fuel. My 05...

    Engine Cutting out randomly

    Yep, but always start with the obvious. The BRS (Big red Switch) is the weakest part of the FZ6. I never use mine, but about 2 years ago, on a day when I had nothing to do, I disassembled and cleaned mine out of concern over the numerous times that this has been a issue.

    High Beam not working.

    Me? Indecisive? I'm not so sure about that! :)

    High Beam not working.

    Thanks Cliff. I mentioned that there should be an indicator on the speedo, but I see that was a bit vague. Thanks for clearing it up.

    High Beam not working.

    Unplug the h4 bulb, turn on the high-beams (there should be an indicator on the speedometer), then measure for voltage across the 2 wires of the plug with a voltmeter. On the US bike, Black/Yellow is hot and solid Black is ground. You are looking for 12V across the two terminals when the...

    ~~~ What did you do to your Bike Today Thread??? ~~~

    In the 1st picture it looks like the pad support is missing from the caliper. I assume you removed it?

    Plasti dipped fz6

    Wow! Looks traffic. Interested in durability, like where your legs will hug the tank. Did you rattle-can the bike, or use a sprayer? I just love the idea of being able to change colors with a quick peel. What colors did you use, and did you use any 2nd stage like a clear or glossifier?

    2005 FZ6 Fairings

    There is a BIG difference in the front end of the S1 and S2. I am not sure if the mounting points are the same, but they are definitely different in shapr and in how much of the bike they cover. Having never seen these parts before, I doubt they will fit the S1. 2 'words to the wise'. 1 -...

    Wierd jerking at idle in gear.

    My Mom told me that when I was young, my motto was "Everyone is entitled to my opinion" :)

    Wierd jerking at idle in gear.

    First, disconnect the Power Commander per the recommendation in post #3. That will split the problem in two and you will know if you are troubleshooting a Power Commander problem or an FZ6 problem. If the problem persists, swap the #2 and #3 plug wires and see if the wet spark plug problem...
