Best tyres for a Yamaha R6

MCN, 26 November 2012 16:16

Q. I have been running Dunlops on my Yamaha R6 and didn’t get on very well with them. I did start looking at Pirelli Diablos or Metzelers, then someone suggested Michelin 2CTs…Plumbus, MCN Forums A. The 2CTs are a sound tyre with great wet weather performance. But they were introduced in 2006, and in a market where sports tyres have ...

Oil light mystery on 2004 Yamaha R6

MCN, 23 November 2011 15:16

Q. I have an ’04 Yamaha R6, and on cold mornings the oil light comes on for about 30 seconds after I have been riding for a couple of minutes. When the bike has done about three or four miles or when engine is warmed up a bit it stays out. This only happens in the winter months. I change ...

Yamaha YBR 125's revs won't drop

MCN, 17 November 2011 10:12

I bought a 2005 Yamaha YBR125 privately few weeks ago, it didn’t tick over very well then but I thought it just needed a good service. It starts OK but after it’s warmed up and ready, if you throttle on and off the revs hang up at 3000rpm for a few seconds then slowly down drop down to a tickover ...

Yamaha YZF750 gearbox playing up

MCN, 12 October 2011 15:36

Q. I recently bought a 1994 Yamaha YZF750R. It starts ok and rides well, although the EXUP valve rattles a bit. But when changing down it’s difficult to get second and first gear and even harder to select neutral as it seems to go through into second. I’ve changed the clutch fluid and bled the system and put new clutch ...

Cure for backfiring Yamaha Thundercat

MCN, 05 October 2011 14:39

I have a Yamaha Thundercat on a 1998 plate which is in mint condition and only has 16,000 miles on the clock. The bike has been great, but last month it seemed to backfire a few times when approaching junctions. The next time I took it out it started to cut out every time I approached a junction. I took ...

Can I fit mismatched tyres to my Fazer?

MCN, 27 September 2011 10:42

The front Dunlop Sportmax on my Yamaha FZ6 Fazer is getting due for replacement and I’d like a reasonably priced new tyre that would suit. The rear tyre is also a Sportmax but has lots of life left. Would you recommend changing both or would it be OK just to renew the front, even if it was for a different ...

Yamaha R1 is skipping second gear

MCN, 07 February 2011 17:06

Q. I’ve just bought a 2002 Yamaha R1 and the gear selection isn’t brilliant, with second gear skipping at 8000rpm. The fork seals are starting to leak too…Gordon Harrison, email A. Oh dear, it sounds like you have got yourself a bike that’s spent more time with its front wheel in the air than is good for it. Those through-the-gear wheelies ...

Can I run mismatched tyres on my Fazer?

Marc Abbott, 06 July 2010 16:35

I am going to replace my Bridgestone 021 rear tyre on my 2004 Fazer to an 023. The current front is an 021 with lots of life left in it, but the rear has a rather large nail in it. I’m going to replace the front eventually, but it’s still got loads of life left in it. Can I still ...
