Question about 2003 Yamaha FZS 600 Fazer

Clutch I am a new member f N.Y. - Putting new clutch plates in 06 fzs 600 There are 3 types of friction plate. The first does not appear to have any marking. The second type (of which there are 7) is marked something like 4VY on one tab and 5 32 on the one next to it. Third type (1 of - last to go in) has similar markings to the 7.

Not much help, but there are some things you might want to check into. Yes the clutches are similar, but the 06LE had some problems with getting oil up and keeping the plates oiled. If you plan to keep the bike, I would check into finding an oil pickup kit or you will probably just burn up another clutch. I don't know were you get the kits, but I have seen a few of them installed at the track.

Put clutch into gear but no movement

Replacing the clutch is fairly easy on most motorcycles. A factory repair manual is helpful and suggested, but in a nutshell, here's the proceedure.
There is a round cover on the right side of the engine, this is the clutch cover. After draining the oil, remove the cover and this will expose the clutch pressure plate that will be retained with a number of washered bolts and springs. Remove the pressure plate, and the clutch plates can be removed. There will be alternating friction and steel plates-remove them all and keep them in a stack in the order they were removed. Soak the new friction plates in oil before installation. Install the new plates starting and ending with friction, alternating a steel plate in between.Be aware that some motorcycles have a different first and last friction plate, your parts dealer should know that when you buy the parts.
After it's stacked reinstall pressure plate with new springs, bottom out the washered bolts and no additional torque is required. Reinstall cover with new gasket, fill with oil and adjust clutch lever so it has enough slack to slide a quarter in between the lever and perch. Good luck!

How do i relpace my clutches and install new ones

Remove the left side cover to expose the clutch. Remove the outer pressure plate by removing the 6 bolts and springs. You can now remove the first friction plate. Then a metal pressure plate, then friction, metal, friction, etc.. The first and last friction plates are a few thousandths of an inch thicker than the rest of the friction plates. When installing the new plates, be sure the two thicker friction plates are at each end of the clutch. A complete diagram of your clutch can be found at the following website. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

I have a 01 yamaha yzf 600 rr and i know it needs a new clutch how hard is it to change the gears

Your bike has a faring on the left side so you may need to remove it to gain access to the left outer casing for removal. You will not be replacing any gears. The only thing needed are new friction plates ( fiber plates w/ cork surface ). The outer pressure plate comes off with 6 bolts. Then the friction and metal pressure plates slide out from the center clutch hub. Install a friction plate then a pressure plate, friction, pressure, friction etc.. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

To fit friction plates on clutch to yamaha sr125

the last plate is a cork type then a steel plate. if you set them down on a cloth untill all plates have been used then install them so the cork friction plate is last 1 installed you should have installed them correctly..hope this helps. if they are new plates soak them in oil over night as this will stop them burning out and help them bed in quicker

new procut basket and barnett plates. Had to file the barnett friction plate tangs they all slide but are a tight fit. All plates installed carefully per the Barnett instructions. Started the bike in neutral all fine shifted into 1st clutch in, I feel the bike want to creep forward although just slightly (I can hold it with my feet down). Can't get to neutral again with the clutch in until I shut the bike off. So, just before I go back in and pull a plate out to make the clutch pack smaller, i wondered whether anyone here has had this problem and whether if I ride it like this for a short while whether the clutch pack will settle in and fully disengage?,A too-high overall thickness of the plate stack will cause drag between plates when the clutch is disengaged making it difficult to select neutral when the bike is stopped. The last 2mm steel plate can be interchanged with a 1.5mm curved plate facing away from you if you want to adjust the stack to get the 38mm stack thickness, or if you want a more progressive, soft clutch engagement. A commonly-used substitution that adds an additional spring plate to the stack. Any of the steel 2mm plain plates can be exchanged with 1.5mm plain plates to reduce stack thickness or increase stack thickness as needed to achieve your desired overall height. You will see the need for this as friction plates wear, so keep your steel plates from pervious clutch replacements as spares to be used as height adjustments later. The 2mm and 1.5mm steel plates only need replacing if they’re scored or warped.,,,
