The neck ache was the reason I bough my original FZS600. At 90mph you knew you were going faster than you were meant to. The previous bike was an FZR1000 Genesis which did 150mph without you realising. Neck ache is worth more than a speeding ticket :pokefun

If the bike is in gear, the side stand must be up on any bike regardless of clutch position or it will cut out. it is a safety feature.

depending on the hose layout, it could still be air in the system. Bleed each caliper separately starting at the one furthest from the master cylinder. Before you do that though, leave the bike overnight with the brake lever pulled back to the bar as far as you can and secured with a tiewrap to try and let any air rise out of the system. It will need a few pumps in the morning to get the pressure back though.

So following on from the facebook thread.....

When the side stand is down it wont start unless you pull the clutch lever in, does it stay running when you release the lever?
If so, I would suspect that this is working as it is designed to. Can others with an FZS1000 confirm?

Many bikes I have had you had to pull the clutch in to start the bike. Doing this removes the drag of the gearbox from the starter motor making the bike easier to start.

If it cuts out when you release the lever then you have an issue (assuming it is in neutral). Putting the bike into gear will cut out the engine if the side stand is down. They are designed that way and are the reason for the side stand switch.

getting the carbs off quickly is easy. Getting them back in takes a bit more time though with the airbox rubbers :pokefun

Glad you have it sorted now though. If getting the carbs back in was as easy as getting them out I would have had a look at my cam chain tensioner by now.

Black is the fastest as it is not even a colour
Red is the slowest
Yellow is not as fast as black unless it has the speedblocks. Then it gets close.
Blue is just slow.
Silver is undercoat waiting for the paint.

Jets still didn't clean. New jets fitted and it's all good now.

All fitted and all working properly now.

 A bit of crap in the fuel can prevent the needle from closing fully.

These are the pilot jets I just received. According to various places you need the #12.5 ones. I will be fitting them tonight.

I have been soaking these jets since last weekend in carb cleaner and some since Monday in thinners and periodically prodding with a strand from a wire brush (I know its not the best thing to use) but this stuff is stubborn. New jets are due to arrive today so those will be fitted. I will keep trying to clean the old ones though just for the fun of it :pokefun

Any local bike shop will do it.

Every time after finishing a ride, if it's passed more than 15min, when I turn to ignition, the pump starts working but shouldn't. You can hear it clicking several times. What could be causing this ?

Says who? The pump is just pressurising the fuel in the carbs. After you turn off the ignition, the pump turns off and pressure leaks back through the system. After a while, could be 15 mins, could be an hour or more, when you turn on the ignition the pump will click for a few seconds as it pressurises again.
If the pump continues to run you have a fuel leak.
If you can smell fuel before starting the bike, you have a fuel leak.

If you have a fuel leak, it should be easy to find.

Thanks DP. I have ordered some pilot jets and cleaned the main jets so all should be good by the weekend on that basis.

if it is on at idle/low revs and it clear at higher revs I would start by looking at the pilot jets or maybe some crap in the main jet.
If its misfiring all the way up the rev range, look at the leads/caps

My sons FZS600 is in bits at the moment because of carb problems. The main jets are clogged as fec with crap. Yours could be similar.

From memory I think that 0.6 is a blank.

That sort of makes sense as to why I cannot get it to clear and why the Yamaha service manual doesn't mention it. I will just order the pilot jets and see how it goes on that basis.

It has to be cellulose thinners the stuff used by spray painters not ordinary paint thinners

Its definitely Cellulose Thinners I have. After 15 hours in soak, still no joy. This stuff is rock hard.

Looks like new jets time.

I have got some thinners and soaked one set of the jets for an hour and it has made zero impact on the varnish. Will leave it overnight and check it again in the morning but at the moment it looks like new jets are needed.

I have found the pilot jets online for a reasonable price (not Fowlers £8 each) but cannot find the main jet 0.6 anywhere other than fowlers at the moment. I will call my local place and check with them in the morning as he has a selection box of different main jets in stock if the thinners don't work.
