    Throttle tube spacer issue (Sticky throttle)

    Thanks guys, found the issue. I tried pulling the plastic ends off the cable which goes into the housing to lube the cables easier and didn't seat them all the way back in after failing to take them off all the way. Pushing them all the way back in has made the throttle smoother again, I was...

    Throttle tube spacer issue (Sticky throttle)

    Hi guys was lubing throttle cables as part of normal maintenance after putting things back together the throttle felt stiffer than it did before also also a little sticky. After taking it apart numerous times I noticed this washer on the inner edge of the throttle tube near the cam, you can see...

    Intermittent startup problem

    Just a general update I fixed the issue by replacing the starter relay here's a video of the relay being tested and the symptoms https://youtu.be/XGi7yjGfNVE it was certainly not the crank position sensor :)

    Gen II oil light on.

    Not sure if it's the best fix but maybe try an oil change before ordering a replacement part? Might be some crap or something in the sump causing issues otherwise generally it shouldn't flicker. I do recall my Honda Hornet manual saying it's not unusual for its oil light to flicker but that's a...

    Bike choking/hesitating when full throttling after air filter change

    Just wanted to update this, I refitted the filter and made sure the hose wasn't kinked and the problem seems to have gone so yeah I'm going to assume it was a kinked line. Thanks guys!

    Noise after key is removed= Drained battery

    This might sound a bit stupid but at least on my 2010 model after the steering lock there's one more position to turn on parking lights, are you sure you didn't switch it to that without knowing? It could be the cause for the drained battery.

    Intermittent startup problem

    I've seen this occur on other Yamaha vehicles IIRC the error code was 12 for crank position sensor however the bike runs perfectly fine once cranked. I do hear a click from under the seat every time I press the start switch which makes me think the starter relay is working fine (although it's...

    Bike choking/hesitating when full throttling after air filter change

    I did get that with the K&N before so I swapped it for a DNA but the box retained some of the warp (only a little) I used electrical tape to seal it off. It could be simply because the filter is so much more breathable compared to OEM my Hornet did the same thing after a K&N swap. That being...

    Bike choking/hesitating when full throttling after air filter change

    Just an update the fuel line looked like it was in the correct position (routed as intended), when lowering the tank it looks slightly like it's flattened but not fully kinked I couldn't get it to sit any other way I have the exup eliminator installed too so there's a little more room in that...

    Gen 2 FZ1N with nearly 7K on the clock Mods on the bike -Beowulf carbon slip on exhaust -Exup eliminator -DNA air filter -Stock map (AFAIK) no fuel controllers So I changed my air filter to a DNA one recently and noticed if I apply too much throttle abruptly for example pulling away fairly...

    Shorting starter relay

    Hi guys I own a 2010 FZ1 N ABS and recently started to get an intermittent issue where the bikes starter won't crank on starter press but will always click, sometimes It will click then after 2 odd seconds will start cranking, other times it starts as if nothing is wrong. Once the bike is...
