I'm a bit worried about needing to replace the main bearings on the engine or having to deal with a rebuild. But it sounds like it can go a LOT longer.Oh I hope not! My 05 has a little under 75,000 miles and still running strong. It's not the mileage, it's the maintenance.......
Yep, my cut off switch failed last year, so here's another +1I am of the opinion that if you want to hurt 1 of these motors, you either need to try your hardest or neglect it. We have heard from LOTS of FZ6 others worldwide and I cannot remember a single one that was well maintained and just mysteriously failed. Not 1.
Here is a secret.... the FZ6 DOES have a weak spot. It's the engine cut-off switch. Symptoms can be engine cut-out, lack of top-end power and more. It doesn't happen a lot, but in my opinion it is the most common problem we see here.
The fixes are to disassemble and clean the switch, or just use a wire to short it in the closed position. I did the first option (proactively, didn't want to ever deal with it) and while it was a little detailed, it was easy to understand and to do. Option 2 is even easier.
