Question about 1996 Yamaha FZR 1000

2 Answers

At very high revs, the engine blows its oil into the airbox.

If the engine is kept below 9500rpm then oil consumption is negligable but when used hard the oil light will come on in 220 miles.

When you say "oil consumption" you mean the oil is being blown out the tailpipe? If that is the case it sounds like your rings are allowing 'Blow by". This can be caused by several things. First how many miles are on the bike? Second what type of oil are you using? Sometimes synthetics can create problems if the transition from conventional to synth. was drastic and not more like Conven./ semi. synth./ full synth.
They do make high milage additives such as Engine Restore. This product overtime fills in small scratches in the cylinder walls and helps seal the rings for better compression. Now on that note have you done a compression test on the engine? This will help you figure out if it is just one cylinder that could be low on compression due to worn rings or is it time for a rebuild? Take a good look at your spark plugs also. They can tell a lot of what's going on in the chamber. If you have taken the advice of the local parts counter guy at your motorcycle shop about using thinner oil try going back to the stock oil and see if that doesn't help.

2001 geo tracker burning oil


Hi Karen, IM AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Karen, the first thing that needs to be checked in your question: Is it burning oil or is it leaking oil. Because both issues will cause the oil level to go down on the dip stick. Find out which is happening through a qualified technician before spending any money on repairs. Please visit my auto-repair-website if you have any other questions: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Oil consumption


Difficult one this ,does it blow out blue smoke ? whats the mileage ? ,need more info to try to work it out as this can be tricky and could be ok ,now with natural oil it could be gummed up piston rings and just using a nice diesel/petrol oil designed for turbo diesel engines might help clean the ring grooves due to its detergent qualities but if this is a high mileage engine then it may be due for a rebuild ,most oil consumption is caused by worn rings/bores or valve guide seals .

Reving issue


Just because the clock says 13000 revs doesn't mean it should do that. Some machines are electronically limited to a certain speed/revs from the factory. My diesel car has a rev counter that goes to 6,000 revs, but the engine would blow up at that. Your bike could have a rev limiter on it to protect the engine. The rev limit is usually set in the ECU. get that checked to see if it has an internal fault.

2011 Gilera Fuoco 500ie excessive oil consumption


Hi, Shahar_shein oil consumption is usually caused by a worn out engine with lots of mileage, new engines can also have excessive oil consumption due to improper break in procedures or faulty parts.The general rule of thumb is anything more than 1 quart of oil consumed in 1,000 miles or 1 liter in 1,500 kilometers means it's time for a top end overhaul. The usual suspects are:
1. Piston rings not properly seated (new engines)
2. Piston rings worn past service limits.
3. Damaged cylinder wall or piston.
4. Valves and guides worn past service limits.
5. Valve seals worn out, crushed or no longer attached.
6. Cracked cylinder head.
7. Head gasket failure.
8. Pinched or blocked crankcase breather hose.

What type oil do I nee4d for a 10hp ohv Mdl 01919 used on a troy built generator





For most Briggs engines / from the Briggs web site :

Oil Recommendation

  • SAE 30 40° F and higher (5° C and higher) is good for all purpose use above 40° F, use below 40° F will cause hard starting.
  • 10W-30 0 to 100° F (-18 to 38° C) is better for varying temperature conditions. This grade of oil improves cold weather starting, but may increase oil consumption at 80° F(27° C) or higher.
  • Synthetic 5W-30 -20 to 120° F (-30 to 40° C) provides the best protection at all temperatures as well as improved starting with less oil consumption.
  • 5W-30 40° F and below (5° C and below) is recommended for winter use, and works best in cold conditions.

Type of oil to use

  • Use a high quality detergent oil classified "For Service SF, SG, SH, SJ" or higher.
  • Do not use special additives.
  • Choose a viscosity according to the table above.

Aprilia 125


i planned to buy a motorbike just try the aprillia 125 and i really like it. so i need ur advice about the maintanance and spare parts. as my fren told me the spare parts dammen expensive lorr... 1 set sprockect and chain cost about rm600 is it true??? i dun care about the fuel consumption coz i use to go to work only so it's take about 60km per day only. pls help me... use castrol 2t oil. else, use repsol. you must always high-REV the bike... if not lagi cepat rosak!! many apprilia owner never rev hard enough and their engine got damaged easily. this is because the piston needs to be lube but the valve will only open when you high-REV(to the correct power-band) the bike. 6000rpm and above. You must ride hard on this bike. If you think by riding gentle the bike will last longer, you are wrong. Engine will get over heated very easily cos piston not properly lubed since power-valve never open. it's a nice bike to own,,,
