Question about 1987 Yamaha FZR 1000

1 Answer

1992 Yamaha FZR1000 won't pick up immediately in first gear when I pull up to a stop light. I have to rev the engine high.. 6-8000 rpm to make it catch and then I lurch forward and the front wheel comes up sometimes. What is the problem causing this? The previous owner said the bike had been down on the left side in a crash, and the shift lever is bent because of this.When I first start out it's fine, but once I'm driving it it happens almost every time.

If this is in first gear only you have a transmission problem. It will require removal and dis assembly of the transmission to diagnose and repair the problem.

If it happens in all gears your clutch is either worn or out of adjustment. Much easier to replace, but still a rather large job for the home mechanic. Try adjusting the cable where it leaves the lever. There should be a lock nut and an adjustment nut located where the clutch cable leaves the handlebars. If you have a hydraulic clutch there is no adjustment other than bleeding the air out of the system.

Rpm high after starting the engine of R15 v.2


It sounds as if a throttle cable or choke cable is either sticking or badly routed . Most bikes rev high at cold start then the revs should decrease as the engine warms up. I would check the throttle and choke cables first make sure they lubricated and operate smoothly and especially with the throttle cable if you open it slowly does it return immediately you take your hand away. It should almost snap shut. I would also check out the pilot air screw in the carb these get clogged with debris from the petrol over time. Before you take the pilot air screw out turn it clockwise into the carb and note how many turns it takes until it stops (do not over tighten this screw) be very gentle when you do this. Check your user manual to see if the turns in you found match the turns out in the manual. Also make sure the tick over (idle) adjuster screw is set correctly your bike should idle at approx 1,200 to 1,300 RPM when hot. My Yamaha 125 is 1,300 RPM my Suzy 650 about the same.
