Hi, Pork711 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.
1. Bearings---SCREECH
2. Belts---CHIRP
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Chains---RATTLE
5. Clutches---CHATTER
6. Cylinders---PING
7. Fairing Panels---WHISTLE
8. Fronk Forks---Plunk
9. Gears---WHINE
10. Head Gasket---HISS
11. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
12. Pistons---SLAP
13. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK
14. Shifting Trans---CLUNK
15. Solid Lifters---TICK
16. Starters---CLICK
17. Connecting Rods Go---KNOCK-KNOCK---who's there, it's me "*****"

I'll tell you why. It is cold natured. I have a 89' Virago, and it doesn't like going anywhere till' it is warmed up. I usually just set the choke up a bit for about 5 minutes, and then hop on and go.

The drain plug is under the left hand foot peg. The filter is located behind the exhaust headers. Remove them and you will see the filter housing at the base of the engine. Refill on the right hand side and your sight glass is under the filler/dipstick (both use the same hole). Remember to only check the oil level when the bike is upright (not standing on its stand)

Hope that is not too vague

Its just a standard speed light to advise you that its time to change gear...at the reccomended ammount of revolutions, you dont have to stick to this range ofcourse.

Depending on what parts you need, KLSupply.com was a good source of parts such as electrical, gaskets, seals, carburator parts and such.

Around here second hand parts always seemed hard to come by. And what you could find these people thought their used parts were worth their weight in gold. The japanese change their bikes too often so some parts are harder to come by.

yes, it's true do not open "if it is hot" but you can refill water to the reservoir tank, it plastic tank white color. i hope you will find it...

Sorry this was never answered.

XJs are cold blooded bikes. Starter fluid usually works. But you may want to check the enrichment circuits on your carburetors. They can get clogged and cause harder-than-usual starting.

If it has spark , it may not be a wiring problem.that is stopping it from running
The head light not working is a differnt issue, maybe the ignition switch, or light switch

1988 Yamaha FZR... | Answered on Jul 16, 2010


replace the pipe, they have an o ring seal, and it probably doesnt sit square and will always leak. dont risk overheating the engine, the leak may get worse while you are riding as pressure builds in the radiator. you might do a quick fix with new o rings

Your bike has electronic ignition. There is nothing to set or reset on the timing. Change the spark plugs, adjust the valve lash, change engine oil and filter, clean or replace the air filter, lube and adjust the chain and cables, inspect the sprockets and wheels, add water to the battery if needed, wash the bike. That's pretty much everything the dealer does.

Basically there are these two issues tht would make the bike wont start..1 is tht if there is no fuel going into the combustion chamber and 2 if there is no sparks at the plugs.
Guess you will haveto check for both of these.
Good luck.

Your pinions will be worn.
Better look for another gear set.

1988 Yamaha FZR... | Answered on Oct 31, 2009


you have to un-screw the bolt on the bottom of the gas tank.

1988 Yamaha FZR... | Answered on Oct 30, 2009


Depends on how much oil you had to add. If you had to add over two quarts then damage was done. If not check valve clearence.
