Question about 1994 Yamaha XJ 600 Diversion S

3 Answers

Fuel petcock positions on my Yamaha XJ 600 Diversion S

I have just bought a 94' Yamaha Diversion which runs great. However, the only problem I have with it is regarding the fuel on/off/reserve tap. Please can you help? I can't get in touch with the previous owner and can't find any info on it in the Haynes Manual or online.

What position is on? (Up or down) Off? and reserve on these models?
I'm currently worried that I may be riding on reserve all the time without knowing it and the only way I'll find out is when I break down cause I've run out of fuel!
thanks. Jamie

    I´ve got a problem to get my XJ 600 Diversion S started, oil light comes up and starter engine runs but nothing more. Could this PRI mode of the fuel tap be helpful? I´ve no idea what the PRI is.

    Other tips?

    Is kickstarting possible by going downhill, contact on, 1st gear and the clutch?

    thanks,

    Soman

Xj600s diversion 1996, oil in the airbox? Why?


First check to see if the oil level in your crankcase is too high. If you have a vacuum petcock malfunction (hole in the diaphragm) or if the fuel petcock is left in the prime position and a float needle sticks, then you get you get gas running into the cylinders, past the rings, and into the oil.
When you start your motorcycle the oil/gas mixture has no place to go, the crankcase is too full, and the mixture exits through the crankcase breather into the air box where it will ruin a paper air filter. Always turn your fuel petcocks off when not driving. If the petcock diaphragms are bad rebuild the petcock with K&L rebuild kits or replace the fuel petcocks with new ones. If the float needles in the carburetors are bad or sticking, take the carburetors apart, clean them, and replace any worn or damaged parts You will have to change your gasoline saturated oil for it will no longer properly lubricate your motor.
