SOURCE: front shocks have a high pitch squeak.

try putting some wd40 on the fork legs then pump them up and down a couple of times then wipe them clean as it may be just a little dirt is causing the squeek and the wd will solve it.

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: Motorcycle idles up to 3,600 rpm warm at stops ,

Did you do the work on the carbs? Do you have the equipment and expertise a pro uses to balance the carbs? If you had this done by a pro, take it back amd make them fix it.

You are right, this is dangerous and expensive. I suggest you have a Yamaka shop take a look at your motorcycle.

SOURCE: Lost of power on throttle increase and motor dies

I would say you have a blocked or damaged jet. I would strip down the carburettor and replace any badly worn jets and clean thoroughly. When refitting the tick over mixture screw , screw it home and back out about 2 1/2 turns. That will be somewhere near it.
Hope that helps.

Vacuum hoses


I realize that fixing yourself & saving money is the way to go

The problem is,that there are lots of hoses,we don't know as you
don't, what the real issues are or if hoses are even a problem

So if you have no back yard mechanic friends, you have to go
to a repair shop.

High --1600 rpm ?? rpm idle


The normal idle speed is below 1,000 rpm...between 800 to 900 rpm. I suspect that the idle-air control motor has seized and can no longer automatically adjust the engine's idle speed. This part is also responsible for slightly increasing idle speed when the airconditioning is switched on to compensate for the added engine load. Some cars even have a "step-up" solenoid to increase idle.

When replacing the idle-air control motor, remember to clean the port that IAC motor goes into; there will be some carbon build-up that may prevent the part's cone-shaped valve from seating properly. A can of intake valve spray helped along with some Q-tips works well.



Hope this helped.

Have a great day !!!

Power (acceleration) loss at mid-high RPM only


Loss of acceleration, the backpressure noise and such are kinda tell tale signs of that converter having problems, feel the exhaust out of the tailpipe it will be warm normally have someone step on the gas and if its super hot it'd be a step in the right direction.

My engine is revving upon start of vehicle and the battery light goes on--- it will drive but it seems like the engine is idling too high


if your hearing a high pitched sound,it is probably your alternator working overtime to charge your battery,if it idles at a higher rpm,then someone tweeked ur idle speed,check under the hood,u can easily release using a wrench,

Power loss + squeal @ 4500~ rpm


Could be the cat, They can make some pretty strange noises...Disconnect it and take it for a short ride and see if rpm's are fine (with it removed you probably won't be able to hear the noise though)

High pitch tone from my 2001 chevrolet S-10 pickup


You didnt indicate whether you ran the engine with the belt removed while replacing the alternator,if not do so and verify noise. Sounds like you may have a vacuum leak, best way to diagnose would be with a smoke machine if not available with the engine cold try spraying carb cleaner around the intake & any suspect vacuum hoses with engine idling look for a change in idle speed or elimination of noise. Hope this helps you out
