Did you buy a genuine Yamaha seal? Patten parts are often not that good. If you did, and followed the advice of keeping everything clean, then it is possibly due to wear between the shaft and seal. Although not familier with FZR1000's, Yamaha engines often allow this shaft to be replaced without pulling the engine apart. It is quite a common problem on their RD LC bikes. This will involve removing the right hand cover (clutch cover) to gain access to the other end of the shaft. You may also need to remove the clutch basket as well.
You need to invest in a workshop manual if you want to tackle this yourself, but it is not a difficult job.
Of course, if the leak is very minor, you may wish to just live with it!
Good luck

head gasket is likely bad. They go when too hot. Or head gets warped or cracked. Try a bottle of black pepper or beaded bars stop leak in the coolant system. Should plug it up after a while. Best to get fixed correctly but this will buy you quite a bit of time.

Suspect you have a loose clamp on a radiator hose or the oil change guy made something leak. There is a tool which is similar to a a bicycle pump in that it pressurizes the water system and your engine does not have to run or be hot to test. Some major auto parts stores may have a loaner.

Its going to stay hot and lose pressure until you fix the leak.

When changing the oil it is important to wet the sealing o-ring with oil before screwing it on. Tighten the filter 3/4 turns after the seal touches the engine. Most oil filters have clear installation instructions on the box or actual filter. Look carefully , if your oil filter is leaking, Take off the leaking filter and replace it with a new one. Top up the engine oil as needed.

My oil is black and smells like gas. i want to change my oil because it scares me but i dont know what type of oil to use for my truck.it is a 1987 xlt ford ranger truck with a 2.9 l.engine from a 1988...


a lot of stuff to fix here
oil: with the truck running hot, I would use a heavy oil, like 10-40
trans: where is the leak? If pan, tighten bolts. seals are much harder repair
water leak: possibly a freeze plug. Maybe you should pull the tranny and fix the water leak and the trans seal at the same time (if the seal is bad)
overheating: maybe just caused by the leak. Hard to tell until the leak is fixed. Might want to check the radiator for sludge and back flush if dirty.
hard sound: probably loose flange seal at exhaust manifold. check hole exhaust pipe to locate leak. If not along pipe, unbolt the flange and put in a new gasket.
engine problems: is the engine light on? If yes, have the truck scanned for trouble code and report them back to us. Autozone does free scans.

Main water line to house. Changing shut off valve. New shut off valve has compression fittings. Will teflon tape interfere w/brass compression ring inside the fitting? thanks Brian


Brian,

I would try to tighten it up without putting tape on it. The ring will compress into pipe when you tighten it to form a seal.
If then it try's to leak you may apply tape or a paste type sealant to stop drip.

99 Sunfire Coolant keeps dumping


You need to find the source of the leak. it hasn't overheated yet because you keep catching it and re-filling. From your description, it sounds a lot like a bad water pump seal (part of pump) but without physically looking you can't be sure of that. when the pump seal begins to fail, internal pressure while running often will drive the seal tighter against the shaft stopping the leak. as pressure drops as the engine cools, the seal relaxes and permits seepage.
With time, that will change and it will leak all the time.

I hope they didnt over fill it when they did the seal a few months ago..

Did the mech say what would cause the overflow ??

Maybe call a trani shop & get a 2nd opinion..
Ask them what causes a overflow..

Ive put everything new on my 626 and it still runs hot


the engine may have a leaking head gasket, to eliminate this possibility a reputable auto repair shop will use a device that attaches to the radiator cap it has a blue fluid in it that will change to yellow if any combustion gas is present in the cooling system passages indicating a blown head gasket. Try the alumi seal product sometimes that works.
