Question about 1986 Yamaha FZ 750 TV (Europe)

1 Answer

Wont start I was wondering if anyone could help me out. My friend has a yamaha FZ 750 TV and he layed it down at about 45. The bike only really sustained some body damage and nothing on the engine was broken. We had to replace the clutch perch and cable and the bike will not start. We checked all of the fuses and the main relay is working. Niether of us know much about bikes, so any help is appreciated. Thanks.

It is common for these to trip when layed over and the contact inside to stick and not re-set. It is a sliding wieght on a curved metal bar. When it slides too far to either side, it completes a ground circuit and kills your fuel pump. Dirt and crud can hold the slider in that postion even after the bike is stood back up. You might want to have a look at that. It lives under the seat on the right-hand side, I believe.... but don't quote me on that.

How do I fix rev counter from flicking up and down on 1989 fz 750 yamaha


This is often caused by a worn or kinked cable (many bikes) but also could be down to problems with the tacho drive or even the connection in the tacho itself can be worn, but that usualy only happens on machines that have had their red line abused

Lost the key to start the bike. How do I get a new


There should be a number/letter code stamped on the ignition switch. Write that down and go to your local Yamaha dealer for a new key. He will want proof of ownership (title) before he cuts a new key. You might also ask one of the local locksmiths to assist.
Good Luck

Bike starts and runs for 5 min the shuts off and wont start again till the next day and then you need starting fluid


Try running with the fuel cap cracked open a bit - you may have a blocked fuel tank breather.

1986 yamaha fz400 wont start


You need fresh gasoline in it, if it's been idle for two(2) years, you also have to clean everything that your gasoline touches like the tank, fuel filter, fuel line, carburator, before pouring it in. If that wont help you, Have your CDI tested if your plugs wont spark. Also ask for the history of your bike, if it was running before they stopped using it.

Wont start


got a charger and it ended up being a dead battery.---- If that's the original battery, it's probably toast. You'll probably do well to search for a replacement at this point. Bike batteries are generally considered short-lived. The longest lasting battery I ever had in a bike went 9 years*. But that's so far away from a normal lifespan it's almost ridiculous. I suppose the average is more like 4-6 years but the modern, Maintenance-Free types seem the best.

Passing igniton


The best thing to do is to purchase a haynes or clymer manual for the bike and look up t he wiring diagram. The contain the colour codes and all other info you need. Another alternative would be to go to a dealer with the key code (normally embossed onto the lock) and get a key made. You are going to need a key if you're going to ride the bike anyway.
