    Re: May My Fz6 Rest In Peace

    So cylinder 2/3 coil failed?
    I'd guess running with no spark is the root cause of most of the cylinder leakage issues as far as rings are concerned. That doesn't mean the valves are OK. But the compression # may not make a smooth idle but run OK under load.

    In the states we rarely see the ECU fail, it the bikes with the immobilizers that seem to kill ecu/ coils. But thats not to say you can't go first.
    Check the switch, swap coils, ecu in that order.

    Re: May My Fz6 Rest In Peace

    I bypassed my kill switch years ago. The ecu was replaced as well as the coils with a pair of used ones from ebay. This was all done during my first visit to the mechanic, where he guessed for 7 months replacing every possible electrical component.

    Re: May My Fz6 Rest In Peace

    Was the ecu bad?
    Which coil failed?
    Do you know what year the coils came from?
    Mind you mine never lost power, just had this bad vibration that made your butt numb!

    ECU was fine. Don't recall which coil failed. I can't find the original document from my initial visit but I'm still looking.

    Also, my YIEC arrived. Directions on the back state one should refer to the Yamaha service instructions to Inject the correct amount of liquid into each cylinder, based on particular model being serviced.

    I'll post on the Yamaha Marine forum and see if I can get a # for you.

    I suspect enough (do one cylinder at a time) at TDC so the valves "see" the cleaner too. You can spin over the engine by hand slowly (plug out) to distribute.

    Here ya go, from a Master Tech:

    "I typically mix about 16 Oz of YIEC to 3 qts of gas and run it".

    Re: May My Fz6 Rest In Peace

    I read the thread you linked to on the Yamaha outboard forum and I just want to clarify something.

    Spinning the engine by hand made sense but this set of instructions about a running engine confuses me.

    After mixing the 16oz/3qt solution, am I supposed to keep this is in a different container and run my fuel line into it? Is the fuel line on the fz6 as simple as the one on my little Rebel's carb'd engine?

    My other idea was to empty my tank, and refill with the exact ratio of the cleaner/fuel. Then empty after running it for 45-60mins and refill with fresh fuel to clear the fuel system.

    If I can get to it tomorrow, I'll post an update in the evening.

    Re: May My Fz6 Rest In Peace

    As the instructions are for an outboard engine, I would try to remove as much fuel as possible, THEN make a mix of the above percentage and put it in the tank.

    Don't bother thinking about another tank, etc...The FZ is fuel injected with a specific, snap on fuel line (not just a piece of hose) unlike the Rebel...

    As noted in the instructions, they want the engine pretty much idling for an hour. For the OB engine, it's not a problem, for the bike, I would put a large fan in front of the engine/radiator and get as much air to it as possible.

    Rodbolt (a Master tech), just does the 16 oz / 3 quarts of fuel (less than a gallon). (not real good to run the tank that low-fuel cools the fuel pump).

    As it's a LONG time Idling (maybe raise the idle a tad) I would probably use a garden hose and trickle water over the RADIATOR (the entire time running) which would also help cool the engine a bunch, (my main concern). That won't hurt anything, like riding in the rain...

    The exhaust, as it works (and the engine running) is supposed to be VERY BAD to breath. The fan should help with that, so be very cognizant of it.

    BTW, to my knowledge, your the first to use this product in a motorcycle (with really nothing to loose and for it to only run better).

    Hope my absence didn't worry you. Didn't end up doing it on Monday. Way too warm to be outside. Hoping for better weather next Monday, my only real day off.
