Question about 1985 Yamaha FZ 750 FT (U.S.)

1 Answer

Oil change Hey everyone -- I was wondering.... I changed the oil in my bike last year, rode about 10 x (maybe about 100 km total) Then I put it in the garage for the winter. Do I have to change all the oil before I try and start it?

When storing for winter oil should be changed before so as to remove contaminates (certainly would not hurt to change-falls under the category of severe usage), then you don't have to worry in spring when you pull your bike out. Hope you drained the carbs and kept the battery charged or you could be looking at spending more money.

The performance on an 2011 opel insignia has gone from 5,5 ltr per 100km to 6.3 per 100 km ... recent service oil change filter change ... even blew out the particle filter... any solutions


Best would be to add a air/fuel meter and see what's going on. O2 sensors, coolant temp sensor, degraded plug/wires, different oil, right foot got heavier.

Oil change intervals for motorcycles depend a great deal on your riding conditions and riding style. For lower-revving street bikes, I often change my oil about every 2000 miles (~3200 km). However, someone with a sport bike who regularly revs their engine closer to the redline, I would suggest a more frequent change interval. Off-road / dirt bikes should have their oil changed sooner because of the dusty conditions. The oil is still full of lubricants, but it is contaminated with dust and dirt that clogs the filter and eventually goes right into the engine, increasing wear. I can't offer much guidance for dirt bike oil change intervals.

Hello sir i got a new yamaha fz16 before 3 weeks. i have ride 1000 km i love riding bike so i reached 100 kmph for several time is that is any problem for my engine please reply me as soon as possible


No, Going that fast for long periods of time may hurt it, but going that fast for short periods is OK. Are you close to the red line on the gage. I have to say I am amazed it will go that fast. it must be a fun bike to ride. Looks good too, real nice looking bike. Keep the oil changed when it is time. Should last many years.

Sounds like your charging system is not charging the battery.

Put a volt meter on the battery, run the engine up to maybe 2,000 RPM. The voltage must be at least 13.8V, but not more than 14.5.

If that is all OK, your battery is worn out, and is not holding sufficient reserve. It would need to be replaced.

Problem getting bike into gear while riding


If the problem only happens when the bike is cold, the oil could be the problem. If the clutch lever has excessive endplay, the clutch needs to be adjusted.
