    High pitched noise - fuel pump?

    Your welcome. Just as an FYI, (and I only hear mine on start up), here's a video of my bike (taken on 9/10/2016) to document voltages/RPM's): You cannot hear the fuel pump (caveat, I do have aftermarket pipes-kinda throaty at the lower RPMs). It's very rare I let the tank get below half...

    High pitched noise - fuel pump?

    There's no transformer. Should my pump start making noises not normally there (28,000 miles currently, original pump), I'd change it. Especially if doing a road trip. Good luck finding a pump and replacing it while "on the road"... I believe several members used this pump (way less...

    I prefer Blue cheese, but Ranch is good!

    How to clean matte colours/ graphic helmet?

    Besides smelling like a salad, it "tastes good too"!!

    How to clean matte colours/ graphic helmet?

    I use "Simple green" on most things, works great! Don't know how it'd work on a matte color / helmet but don't know why it shouldn't.. .

    Fuel pump replacement

    I've never had the "block" apart and have no idea of the internals. You , are now the resident "expert"... Congrates on a happy ending, GO RIDE!!! .

    Fuel pump replacement

    Yepper, the Carbtune is worth it's weight in gold and will (and apparently has) paid for itself already. KUDO's! How far off, roughly were all the other cylinders? Also, if not buttoned up already, (or maybe you did it), sync/adjust at 4K RPMs too and get a happy medium. That will help...

    Fuel pump replacement

    So your at one turn out at this starting point? And yep, being so much higher than sea level, I don't see you getting to the Yamaha # with much less air pressure at your higher altitude.. . Maybe when you start the sync, a pic of BEFORE syncing (and of course AFTER)... Good luck.

    Valve Clearance ADJUSTMENT

    Un-less very old, lots of heat cycles(rubber valve cover gaskets hardened up), I used mine again. I had 26,600 miles on the bike at the time. I did replace the CCT cover gasket. You must use some RTV / Yamabond where the wires go in to the cam chain cover(Pick up sensor inside). For...

    Time to Replace Sprockets?

    Agreed with all the above, the fronts pretty worn, the rear not as bad. A new OEM has no master-link but you have to slide back the swingarm some to slide the chain in. I see "DID" on that chain so I'm not sure that's the original chain... . As BB saw and noted, you DO have some links...

    Fuel pump replacement

    It's a great investment and mines paid for itself several times over. Actually had to re-do a YAMAHA facility that f...ed up the sync on my old FJR.... Anyway. I'm at sea level and I couldn't get the base screw/adjustment anywhere near what the factory called for for my FZ.. I used the...

    Fuel pump replacement

    Quote: One possibility is TB sync Block defective but the cold circuit is ok and the remaining systems are bloody simple... air pipes and metal cylinders End quote.. I truly believe there's something amiss/clogged, very possibly in the TB Sync Block. If you don't want to purchase a...

    Fuel pump replacement

    Dunno... I suspect if nothing can ruled out definitely, a used ECU or TB's would be next.. I'm still leaning towards the TB's with no adjustments working, cold idle lower rather than higher, etc. The ECU, I don't believe would be "stopping" the idle adjustment(or lack of, again, the low...

    Do you have access to a manometer?

    Fuel pump replacement

    I'd be interested to see what a Manometer hooked up would show.. If, when adjusting each cylinder, is it doing anything.. I suspect their way out of spec. If you haven't already hooked up a meter, might be time to do so.. Have you tried opening up the Main, #1 TB adjuster some? As I re-call...

    Fan problems

    It is one piece of aluminum, cut on a band saw and bent/drilled by hand. No welding. You can actually roll up and stuff some aluminum foil in-between the space, just make sure it won't blow out. I never changed out the stock fuse.. BTW, even with a front "fender extender", you could see...

    Fuel pump replacement

    As noted earlier, cold start should have a higher idle and , I can smell the excess fuel (at least for me). As I have my RPMs turned down some, cold start RPMs are about 1,300. Once warm, hot RPMs are at 1,100 and NO excess fuel/ smell.. The cold start/ richer mix is up near the TB's...
