Question about 1994 Yamaha FZ 750 KT (Europe)

2 Answers

Brake issue yamaha

I changed the front break pads on my FZ 750 KT Maxim and decided to also change the break fluid. I drained the line and cleaned the remaining fluid from the reservoir. I added new fluid and tried to bleed it through the break line, but the fluid will not go into the line. The line is not plugged and as far as I could tell nothing got into the hole to plug it. Is there some secret technique to get the break line primed and the breaks working again?

Had the same problem, took the whole assembly off the bike complete. That's both the callipers, all the lines & splitter & the front lever with master cylinder complete.

Put some wooden chocks in-between each set of brake pads just wider than the disc, then with the help of a buddy, hold the callipers above the master cylinder keeping the brake lines as straight as possible. Pump the lever 5-6 times & open bleed nipple, making sure that the lever is pulled in before doing up the nipple.

Repeat as many time as necessary, took me about 8 cycles to get air out.

If you think about it, if you try to bleed on bike, you're pushing the air bubbles down, air will always travel upwards easier than down due to good old gravity!!
hope this helps!

Pump the lever 5 or 6 times w/ bleeder closed while holding lever, open bleeder close bleeder, pump the lever. Repeat as necessary - works best w/ 2 people. If you really want to get the fluid flowing fast, Loosen the banjo bolt instead of the bleeder the first couple of times. Have lotsa rags on hand..

Does the yamaha fz 750 use transmission fluid or just the motro oil

The FZ750 uses the same oil for the transmission and crankshaft and top end. All oil is stored in the oil pan below the transmission and distributed throughout the engine by an oil pump.
If you are asking if you need to use different oil for the transmission than the engine, no.
If the oil level is correct for the transmission, it is correct for the whole engine.

Brake line

you're in for a fun night. You need to start pumping new fluid in. Fill up the reservoir then pump the lever a couple of times to get fluid to start to flow into there. Then... you'll have to bleed them. Pump pump pump, squeeze, open nipple, close nipple, release, pump pump pump, squeeze, open nipple, close nipple, release. Do not let the reservoir empty out. Keep doing this until you get clean brake fluid through the lines and no bubbles. It's going to take a lot of worth though.

Charging system

I think 13.26 is very good for a bike of it's age. Especially charging a bigger cell battery such as a car battery! I wouldn't worry to much about your charging system looks to be doing just fine. almost sounds like your bike needs to be taken out for a Relief of sitting run.
