Question about 1999 Yamaha YZF 600 R thunder cat

2 Answers

Power Loss at around 3000 rpm

My Bike has started to lose power at around 3000 rpm, this only happens when in gear and under load. As it reaches 3000rpm the revs very slowly build still. I have checked the pick up coil resistance and Ignition coil resistance all are ok. No fuel lines are trapped. Recently I have replaced fork springs/oil and had the front end off for access. The problem only started when I put the bike back together.

Are the carbs balanced correctly and are you sure that all of the jets are clean. if not try it, it might work. sluggish throttle response is normally to do with the carbs.

It sounds like ignition to me. Most likely coil or stater. I would start with the coil.

I guess I'll start by saying a 22 yr old car could be reaching the end of its life, so I would keep the RPM under 3000 to help keep it on the road a little longer.
You did not say the plug wires have been replaced, and they could also cause the miss. Also, one of the coils or plugs could be faulty even if they have been replaced.
The check engine light is not on, right ?

Loss of power above 3000 rpm


You have a fuel delivery problem. Open the gas cap on the bike & try. This will prove if a vacuum is happening inside the tank (plugged vent). Check fuel filter. Check fuel pump. Check fuel pressure regulator.

Loss of power


Clutch slippage would be a possibility. While rolling in 5th gear mid-range in the rpm band give the bike a lot of throttle. Do the rpms rise significantly without the speed of the bike increasing? If so you may need a new clutch or possibly just new springs. If you have put any oil additive it is possible your clutch friction plate(s) became contaminated.
