New Bike lots of problems

Postby Q_Ball » Mon Apr 17, 2017 8:21 pm

Hi, I am new to this forum and the YZF600R. I have riden motorcycles for years but havent been on a sportsbike in like 20 years nor have I worked on them before. Vtwins I am ok with.

Back Story on the bike I have:
was my sisters bike. She took it to Florida and it was stolen. Amazingly it was recovered, for some reason the person/people who stole it decided to ride it. She did n't want to put the money into it so she sold it to me.

The Bike is a 2003 with 3400 miles,

The Bad
The ignition key slot was removed (going to install a FoB system)
They replaced the exhaust with one off another type of bike (so it looks like) see video below
Brake pads wore to the metal ans scored the rotor
Throttle sticks, as in you give it gas and let go and it stays there
The rest of the issues are mostly cosmetics.


So now my questions, but let me try and start in order. was able to get the bike started but the fuell pump is making a clicking noise that seems odd. It just seems slow and loud.
1) is there a way to test the feul pump?
2) tons of smoke from the exhaust, I know this is an open end question but what are the posibilites? My initial though that I am running to rich and I am wondering if there is a simple way to add more air instead of adjusting all the A/F screws.
3) There is a hose from the top of the crankcase and it looks like it is suppose to go to the airbox but the hose is to big. Where does this hose go?

This bike is going to be for my daughter and I want to make sure itt is safe for her. and my concern is that when I replace the rotor and put the tire back, how do I know the proper chain tension?

Any and All help is appreciated.

The fuel pump does run when you first turn on the bike. Should stop a short time later.
Replace that muffler pronto!!!!
Post a pic of the hose. A grey one?
Is it coolant leaking?

all that liquid is from the exhaust. I carefully checked and it all came from the exhaust since it isn't seal properly.

The fuel pump does shut off just sounds really weird. I was expecting it to have a faster softer sound

Here is the hose. It looks like it should plug into the airbox but it is about 1.5x to big.

Also started the bike today. no smoke, no liquids and sounded good. Fuel pump sounds good too. I think it was the seafom in the tank without fuel that caused the problem when I started it the first time.

Crankcase breather hose. It does go up to the airbox.

Ah. I didn't see the connection in the middle of the housing also looks like I have been putting hose B in the wrong place. I was placing it as the gas tank vent hose mostly because when I pulled the tank that is were it was connected.

Tank has a separate drain hose. If it's missing just any will do. Run it down to the clip by the right foot peg.

3 drain hoses go to there. Airbox, tank and coolant overflow. IIRC

Yeah I am missing the tank vent. Also looks to be no oil in the bike. I am wondering how this guy was riding it when the cops stopped him. On a plus side I got the battery charged back up :roll: Can you recomend a good brake rotor I found this on amazon just not sure about it.

There are score that are 4 mm deep and multiple scores. The thiefs ran the pads off, don't know how, then ran the metal on the rotor. It is shot

It will run for a while with no oil, but it wont get 'better' just by adding new oil.

Surprised its not seized up.

Do you have a salvage yard near you? Check ebay, $80 is a lot (to me anyways). IIRC I got one off a 95 or 96 yzf600 (not a r).
The rear is notorious for not releasing pressure and chewing up the pads in a hurry.

Its a sportbike, I hardly ever use the rear brake anyways, only on hills, or in the rain.

since this is for my daughter, I rather get new. If it was for me I wouldn't care.

What makes you think the bike ran out of oil?

A used rear rotor is not a big deal. As long as it's straight. I'd trust a used OEM rotor before a cheap aftermarket one.

Weird...the rotor you linked shows ok for 00-03, but not for 04...lol

I have read a few post about throttle srticking. unfortunately none of them have applied.

when I remove the thottle housing and hold the cables in place it snaps back. when I put the house on it sticks. if I loosen the housing is sticks. I have removed the end and the grip and this didn't help. I have also lubed the housing and cables but it didn't help. any other ideas?

So, it's the throttle tube at the housing making it stick?

is this how the end of the throttle cable (at the grip should look)? should the litle plastic pin be 90 degrees to the tube?
