Question about 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1 SP
Hi, Clive750 get a 2nd opinion on the lifter noise clutch noise is common if it goes away when you pull the clutch lever in and I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
7. Fronk Forks---Plunk
9. Head Gasket---HISS
10. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
12. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK
13. Shifting Trans---CLUNK
14. Solid Lifters---TICK
16. Connecting Rods Go---KNOCK-KNOCK---who's there, it's me "*****"

SOURCE: carb problems
if & when you do get it running again, does the bike have a petcock at the gas tank? if it does, when the bike is running before you are about to park it for 2 weeks, turn the petcock off and let the bike die on its own (from fuel starvation). this will ensure there is (almost) no gas in the carb to cause any gumming. you can drain the little bit that is left with the carb bowl drain screw. then when you're ready to ride again, simply turn the petcock on, wait a few seconds for the carb bowl to fill, then hit the start button.

Hi: It is "normal" for most royal star ventures to have a loud chirping sort of gear noise at certain rpms. Mine does it in every gear. It is especially noticable at between 100 and 110 kms/hr. If you increase or decrease the speed it gest better. This noise is because of the straight cut gears. Yamaha does this for strength and reliability but it is annoying. You can read more about it on the Venture owners sites such as The Venturers or VentureRider.org. It is nothing to worry about but I know it is annoying. Mine does it too. The RSV has a few quirks like this. nothing serious but somewhat annoying. THe other common thing is that the speedometer reads about 7% high. Mine does and many do. However, it is a very smooth, and very reliable bike. Hope that helps.

Wish I could come up with a line of B.S. as good as their service department does. You have a slightly bent shift fork. Tell the jerks to fix it. It is a problem, it is not right, and it is covered under warranty. Tell them you really don't want to get creamed when the bike pops out of gear and doesn't want to go back into gear as a cement truck is coming at you. If you let them stall you until the warranty runs out it will cost you around $1400.00 to get it fixed. Contact the Regional manager for Yamaha ASAP. Google "Yamaha Motor Corporation" http://www.yamaha-motor.com/
What I am afraid will happen is that the dealer will do the repair and install a new shift fork then tell you they could not find anything wrong so you now owe them the cash because Yamaha will not stand the repair cost for a non-existent problem. Send Yamaha a certified letter as to your concerns and insist someone other than the dealer inspect the bike to confirm the problem. Keep a copy of the letter and the postal receipt. Is there another dealer in the area?
The diagram below shows how a shift fork moves a slider gear left and right to change gears. A slightly bent shift fork would not let the slider gear "dogs" fully engage into 1st gear.
A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Common problem with poor quality parts, the regulator is the problem, the generator is working other wise you would not have fried the wiring, you answered your own question. someone telling porkies to get more money from unsuspecting client?
The regulator controls the voltage not the generator, the generator only supplys the voltage it cannot overcharge unless the regulator is not working properly, simple!

The cam chain has stretched a bit making it look like its half a tooth out, the tensioner takes up the slack but makes the cam timing slightly out.
You could have timed the crank 280 degrees out
It should be timed on the T mark for one cylinder & on the I mark (if there is one) for the other.
The marks before the T mark are for ignition timing (firing marks)
Hope this helps.
(If it does then please mark this as 'useful')
