    1993 Yamaha FZ600 Clutch

    My neighbor had the clutch rod on his yamaha FX600 break. Now he has replaced it and says the clutch won't work. He does not have the shop manual.

    So does anyone have any tips on the yamaha FZ600 Clutch setup?

    Thanks

    But if I remember correctly on my Maxim when I had to replace a broken clutch rod, when I put it back together it did not work. I was clueless until I moved a few parts and foung a single ball bearing that had to go in before the clutch rod. It fell out two or three times while I was reassembling and I finally put some wheel bearing grease on to keep it in the hole until I got the rod in place. Don't know if they are similar setups or not.

    That is exactly what it was. I forgot to report back. Now he is dealing with an extremly rich issue fouling plugs.

    Thanks to both of you!

    Those things are a bear to keep the carbs tuned. They have that weird system on them, forget what it is called, but I believe that it is some sort of equalization tube that is supposed to keep things as close to tune as possible. There is a tool from Yamaha that needs to be used to tune the carbs properly.
