SOURCE: yamaha 2001 r1

Hi There,
Got this from my copy of the Yamaha workshop manual for this model

The YZF-R1 features a self-diagnosing system for the following circuits:
1. throttle position sensor
3. fuel level indicator light
if any of these circuits are defective their respective condition codes will be displayed on the tachometer when the main switch is set to "ON" (irrespective of whether the engine is running or not)

1. throttle position sensor a) Disconnected b) Short-circuit c) Locked 0 - 3,000rpm
2. EXUP a) Improper connection b) Short-circuit c) Servomotor is locked 0 - 7,000rpm
3. Fuel level indicator light a) Improper connection 0 - 8,000rpm

It looks like you have a problem with the EXUP Valve on yours, probably seized or maybe cables not moving freely
Hope this Helps

SOURCE: High pitched whining noise which doesn't vary

My bet is that it is actually coming from the speedometer. Try disconnecting either end of the speedo cable and see if the noise stops. If so, then all you need to do is apply a drop or two (but no more!) of oil into the speedometer-head bushing. Do this by removing the instrument cluster so you can flip it over - then put some light viscosity oil into the area where the speedo cable goes in. CAUTION; do not use more than one or two drops of oil - and do not leave the instruments upside down for any length of time. Failure to heed these warnings can cause oil to drip onto the face of the unit, making an unsightly (and un-fixable) mess.

Please let me know if this fixes the noise.

SOURCE: I have a CRF100 and it has excessive vibration

Make sure all of the engine mounting bolts are tightened properly. One loose engine mount bolt can cause exactly what you are describing. While you're doing that, perform a visual inspection of the attachment points on the frame, making sure there are no visible cracks.
Aside from that, just stick a wrench on every bolt and nut on the bike that you can see - and make sure everything is tight.
The only other possible thing I can think of would be a loose flywheel on the crankshaft. Unlikely, but check just to be sure.

SOURCE: 1999 RSV Mille 20K miles, clutch seems to slip at high revs

The bike has led a hard life. This takes a toll on the clutch friction plates. Just install a new set of fiber friction plates and all should be well. When installing the plates also check the springs. You may want to install new springs as well.

Struggeling so switch gears on high revs

You could have either have the clutch not adjusted correctly or you could have glazing on the clutch discs or both. I would check for glazing on the clutch pack.If they seem glazed rub them on the cement a few times. The concrete will not harm anything but it will clear the glazing off of the clutch pack.

The bike had stood unused for 3 years. Had the tank cleaned (rust) and changed the device that channels fuel out of the tank. The bike (2007 Grand King 125) starts and cuts off after a few revs.

Sounds like you have to pull down the carburetor and thoroughly clean it. Over the years the bike did not started debris and calcium deposit might have blocked the air/fuel jets.
Clean it and soaked the carbruretor for a day with lacquer thinner, so that all the air/fuel passages will be clean out. A high pressure air will help the clean up!
Thanks for using FixYa!

The bike was out of use for about 4 months .it stards perfectly but when it is running in low rpm the engine begins to fail but does not stall in high rev it goes well I cleaned up the carb it improved a...

When you cleaned up the carbs did you also clean out the low speed idle jets? They are the first thing to plug up when your bike sits with out gas stabilizer in the tank. The bike runs great at speed but will not idle properly.
