    Re: May My Fz6 Rest In Peace

    Little update:

    Just ran the bike with the cleaning mixture for a little over an hour. I was expecting smoke but didn't experience any. Just the occasional drop/fluctuation in rpm.
    I'll empty the tank in a bit and run some fresh fuel through it.

    Cylinder 3 is barely warm to the touch.

    Time to start digging into cylinder #3 ….

    Check for spark, then compression or better yet a "leak down test".

    And those tests yield nothing, check the injector.

    Remember. Its air, fuel, spark. If 2 is firing then 3 should fire. Broken wire, bad plug are easy fixes. If 3 is low on compression then the plug would be sooty or wet. Swap the 2 and 3 plug wires and plugs to see if the problem moves to 2.

    Re: May My Fz6 Rest In Peace

    I'm so close to just chucking this engine out the back of a moving truck BUT! I will continue on. I'm way too curious/hard headed to call it quits now and I also value the information that will be attained through this and possibly be of use to someone else on this forum in the future.

    Unfortunately, my work schedule is pretty nutty here so the updates will be sparse but I'll try and make them as thorough as possible to save time.

    Thanks for the help guys. I really appreciate it.

    Plus 1 ^^^. The #3 spark plug should also show whitish or dry, more so than the others.

    Also, the above makes sense with no carbon / smoke, etc coming out of the engine with that treatment.

    With NO fuel going to that cylinder-it's NOT going to burn off anything W/O fuel to BURN...

    Re: May My Fz6 Rest In Peace

    Can we back up for a minute. So you adjusted the valves yourself; did you record the as found, as left values? What shims were present and what the replacement values were?

    If so, some math may solve this if you have the data!

    These engines are not known for self destructive behavior of the cylinders. I'd lay odds on ignition fault followed by valve lash.

    And if you have a syringe you could add fuel to the running engine to verify injector operation.

    If the header heats up, injector is suspect. Assuming you have spark. Maybe shoot for 4500 rpm and trickle in fuel. RPM will raise if the hole comes to life.

    Do inspect the plugs before doing above test. Actually just replace them.

    But that whole low compression thing says leak down test followed by **most likely** valve adjustment.
