Question about 1999 Yamaha XJ 600 Diversion S-N
Just bought a 1999 XJ600 Diversion. Everything is great but there is a very High Vibration at 4,000 RPM, which completly disappears at about 5,000 rpm. Any idea what it is and what i can do to get rid of it?
Hi, Mark_whitmor and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and or tires worn or damaged.
2. Engine/transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain is badly worn or links too tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect due to a poorly tuned engine.
7. Internal engine problem flywheels have shifted.
8. Broken frame.
9. Stabilizer links worn or loose.
10. Rubber mounts loose or worn.
11. Rear fork pivot shaft nuts loose.
12. Front engine mounting bolts loose.
13. Worn out or broken universal joint on shaft drive models.

Your Yamaha seems to be needing a clutch adjustment.
You can adjust this on your own by turning the adjusting nut out (at the handlebars) to take up the slack. If that doesn't fix the issue completely, turn the nut back to where it was, and adjust the cable at the clutch housing (right side). Start in small adjustments, and work your way from there. When you get it close, go back to the adjusting nut located at the handlebars and do the fine tuning there. Be sure to leave some slack from full release of the handle to where you feel the clutch tension start. If you don't, the clutch will not fully engage. If this doesn't fix the issue, let me know and we can go from there.
Hope this helps

You will probably need the workshop manual. Im not too sure but you may need a special tool to remove the stanchion from the lower fork leg. Im doing VFR forks at the moment and was able to use a combination of hex spark plug spanner and sockets to insert into the leg to hold the inner slider and open the nut at the bottom of the leg. Once it was out you just need to give it a few tugs to separate the two tubes and remove the seal.
Here is your manual i think. Good luck.
Rate if I've helped you.

sound like your starter gear might be missing a tooth or some other king of damage, this shouldnt be a costly repair, but I wouldnt ride too much as it is, if there is a chunk of the starter gear in the transmission, this could cause much damage and be very costly

Testimonial: "thanks for advice, unfortunately stater gears are within crankcase, which means total engine strip. Probably cheaper to get another engine!"
