    Re: Chain whizzing noise

    Yep, someone's been dinking under there...

    That squarish aluminum piece(atop the engine), where your pic shows it JUST touching on the corner, it SHOULD FIT square around that engine part. (BTW, there's only one pic there)

    That's why I do ALL my own work...

    Have fun!

    You mean the non shiny piece in the background? That's indeed barely touching. Is the corner of the loose plastic closer to me supposed to be held by something? On the diagram it simply looks pressed by pieces on top, but there's barely anything on my bike to keep it in place...

    I see three pictures in the album but here's a direct link to each in case:

    Re: Chain whizzing noise

    Hi guys, I made a fun discovery tonight.

    After flushing the coolant, which had a nice dark green colour (see picture), losing the screw holding the top of the radiator (anyone got its dimensions?), being denied easy access to the coolant overflow tank by the frame sliders, and getting gunk all over my fingers by removing the lubed but dying clutch cable, I got to the airbox, where I found the air filter looking a bit grim (see picture).

    What really concerns me is what I found next to it. There are dark red sludge rings around the air intakes (pic 1, pic 2), which could be poorly applied sealant or combustion byproducts or engine oil or... I'm not sure and I don't know how bad it actually is. None of the pictures I found online had anything close to this. Any thoughts? (and about that bolt?)

    Cheers.

    Re: Chain whizzing noise

    That coolant was due to be changed, it should be lighter (but I've seen much worse).

    Which screw, part #25: Yamaha Motorcycle Parts 2005 FZ6 - FZ6ST RADIATOR HOSE Diagram
    It'd be an M6 x 1 thread pitch, length, going to have try a couple different one, (IDK off hand)..

    As for the air box, I don't remember if Yamaha put sealer there but it certainly isn't "spit out" from the engine.
    As long as it's hardened up, (not loose and runny) you should be fine.

    The new air filter fits VERY tight. I use a very light coating of grease on the edges to slip it in and for the air box cover as well..


    If there's any doubt about your clutch cable, here's mine (maintained VERY well for the last 20,000 miles), which I noticed a little binding:

    Re: Chain whizzing noise

    Thanks Scott. I'll just leave the airbox like that then, everything seems normal.

    The S2 radiator is a bit different, but you pointed the right bolt, #25. I also miss #16. I can't remove #50 for the life of me. I'm not sure where I could find #16 but apart from that I'll be good.

    Lastly, don't worry, the new clutch cable is already waiting for me to install it!

    Re: Chain whizzing noise

    That is an S1 parts fisch link I posted. (first style gauge package).

    Part #16, the rubber sleeve, NEEDS to be there or the metal will wear thru over time...

    There is NO part #50 on that page, so not sure about that.

    Here's the main parts link that I use, just plug in your info and peek about.
    It IS for the US models ONLY, but should suit most your need: . Yamaha Motorcycle Parts


    As an FYI,
    for the years of the bikes(for the US and for this parts manual),
    2004-2006 are considered S1's (first gauge package, non-removable rear passenger pegs)
    2007-2009 are considered S2's (newer gauge package, removable rear passenger pegs)

    Some other countries title the bike when it's sold. So it can be sitting for 5 years and be labeled a much
    newer bike. That's fine BUT when ordering parts, a PIA as there's two generations of FZ6'.



    BTW, for the clutch cable replacement, the air box has to come off as it's pretty tight sneaking the cable "bends" thru the upper/front frame rails..
