  1. Here's my XJ6 s 2012 I bought recently. Only 1,750 miles on the clock! It's a great ride, excellent condition really comfortable and pretty quick. I think I'll be keeping this one for a while...

  4. These folk have a good rep for fixing Brit speedos. They may be able to help, or give details of someone who can https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.speedorepairs.co.uk/&ved=2ahUKEwirjY2_l8P4AhVVgFwKHXd8A9IQFnoECAsQAQ&usg=AOvVaw0vJhR6YRGCQU0aGs0J_yNq

  7. I just found this on the net it states that there are some problems with valve seat arrangements that have been known to cause issues. You might like to think about using the updated heads that they mention. just a thought! The first models had some problems with warping valve seats, so later cylinder heads were changed to round exhaust ports to help the heat dissipate. Heat remained a problem, frequently causing the head to fracture. The balancer and camchain arrangements needed regular attention.31 Aug 2015 Not saying this is the problem but valve seals are a source of smoke if they are old or worn plus valve seats do wear and that might be an easy fix!! Press out the valve seats and put in new round ones plus seals.

  8. Not a mechanic, but... The key is to figure out EXACTLY where the smoke is coming from. Try smothering it in soapy water and look for the bubbles, that will give the mechanical guys more to work on!

  9. It's hydraulic Slice, you could try an oil change but I think at the end of the day your gonna have to open her up so you may as well stick a new clutch in and have done with it.

  10. hi there i had the same problem as you, except my dt was too high the only way to higher or lower the bike is to make some new suspension links. If you look under your swingarm you will find these. The ones im holding are the original yamaha ones, ones on my bike are the custom ones. The longer they are the lower the rear end. So, if you want to make it higher all you would have to do is make the suspension links shorter. Oh and make sure you loosen your chain alot before you put them on hope this helps.
