Question about Yamaha FZ6 Fazer Motorcycles

1 Answer

I am considering changing the exhaust system on my '04 Fazer from a 4 into 1 into 2, to a 4 into 1. Is this a good idea or should I leave it as it is?

Generally speaking, the stock exhaust will give the quietest ride, and best gas milage, and often better power than an OEM exhaust system (although the sound from the 4 into 1 may give the illusion of more power).
Chances are the backpressure would be different which means loss of power.
So, in my opinion, stock exhaust is better, and I wouldn't change it.

At an idle, no car should have a red hot exhaust manifold. If it does, this could indicate a clogged Catalytic Converter. or a o2 sensor thats bad. I would not drive it until it gets fixed. convertor, timing, etc, just get it checked out! good-day !

I have a lack of power on my fazer 600cc 2000model. it sets off, then slows down like its going to cut out, then picks up again. also the choke doesnt work properly. its either on or off, and that depends...


It would be a good idea to clean the air intake and fuel system. Be sure the air filter is clean. Drain the carbs. Water condensation in the gas tank may have partially filled the carb float bowls. Check to see the choke is mounted securely. A rebuild kit may be needed. You will probably need to remove, disassemble and clean the carbs but try the drain first. It is a lot easier and no cost. Now would be a good time for new spark plugs and an oil change. Lubricated the chain lately? Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Baffelectomy


Well, now that you asked, by removing the baffles it changes the back pressure on the exhaust system. In some cases this causes need for re-jetting the carbs to make it run a bit richer. There are a lot of riders out there that like the louder sound of the baffles either drilled or removed entirely. The exhausts are factory tuned to match the jetting of the carbs.
Keep an eye on the exhaust pipes to see if they start turning blue. If so, it is a sign of the engine starving for fuel and would be a good time to consider re-jetting. Or, if you like the color blue and purple on your exhausts you can leave the jetting alone.
Ride safely, Ed
