    Re: May My Fz6 Rest In Peace

    I did look into that product. Sounds like Seafoam on steroids. I'd definitely spend the $50 just out of curiosity. And I had done the valves a few thousand miles ago but now It's got me worried that I possibly read them wrong. Although I triple check all my numbers before purchasing the shims.

    Yep, Sea foam is a good product but NOTHING like the Yamaha stuff...

    As a side note I use Yamaha's "RingFree" in all my gas engines (SUV & bike included). It's a top end and fuel system cleaner which works very well:

    However it's applied normally at 1 oz /10 gallons. You can use a shock dose of 2oz / 1 gallon if need be. Even this would help (also about $50 quart).

    In your case, I would do the commercial grade stuff.

    Good luck and please report back with the results..

    If the rings are seized, some good old fashion "high RPM loading the engine" could do wonders. Just make sure to have good quality oil, and not do anything stupid (a track day would be ideal).

    My last ride was a 35 mile ride with the throttle pinned and the bike barely holding 65mph at max.

    I went ahead and purchased the Yamaha stuff from Amazon couple days ago. Should arrive sometime this week. Any tips on how to use that stuff?

    Just follow the directions.

    I've never used it however the Master Tech I mentioned earlier, posted badly carboned up engines, this stuff fixes better than 90% of it with no tear down.

    Going in 6th at 65mph with the throttle pinned doesn't do much for loading the engine, and it will very possibly do harm, as it'd imply a very rich fuel mixture.

    Coils that ohm good, well thats good but it doesn't mean they pass an electrical load test.
    Hop on fleebay and grab some new used coils, verify the caps are snug on the wires and try them. Likely out more in shipping than the cost of the coils.

    When it hits on all 4, you should be be good. And If you happen to stumble on a spare ECU for cheap grab it.

    The whole ignition is the battery, off switch on the bar (switch fails often, bypass it), ecu, and coils. So if you are missing spark, it's one of these. The run stop being a known weak link.

    Good luck.
