Apparently it’s a tight fit. New plan. Centerstand, screwdriver holding the rotor back when I remove the stator. Walmart bag just worked up under the rotor and such and pushed to the back. Thin enough and a little extra security

Good luck. I tried sliding a thin cardboard underneath and remove it that way. Didn't work. Like you said, it's a tight fit. I just said screw it and pulled it out. When removing the rotor, as soon as it's free, rotate it so the far end is up. That's your best bet I believe.

Actually, scratch that. This is the video I took of replacing mine: https://youtu.be/rn2aMT4E6bw?t=250 apparently the cardboard trick worked

The spacer that falls down sits behind the gears that are press fitted onto the rotor. So if you push those back while pulling the rotor, the gear should squeeze the spacer and prevent it from falling. Then you can put a screwdriver in it, and grab the spacer along with the gear.

If I had to do it again I’d just used a few sheets of copy paper. They’ll fit better and you can shape them into more of a U shape to catch any parts and contain them.

There was apparently only one oil pan gasket (aka oil strainer gasket per Yamaha) at the Yamaha warehouse in Kennesaw but they don’t do direct to public sales so I have to wait till Tuesday for a dealer to get it in. Planning to use the time to replace the long overdue fork oil (42k miles) and relocate the bracket that blocks the front stand so I can store the bike on stands. That and my non bike related to do list for my vacation.

Finished installing the new rotor and replaced the oil pan gasket, took her for a few laps of the surrounding roads and all went well.

Also had Spencer modify a stock seat for me, my dirt road seat is great but at my height I feel like I'm sitting in an invisible SUV going down the highway and wanted to sit a little lower into the bike. Torture test today and tomorrow to see how it stacks up.

Did you opt for the LD version? He did my Street Triple and I've been real happy with his work. I have the Dirt Road seat on the FZ1 as well, and like you, it puts me a tad higher than I'd like.

definitely went LD as I'm a heavier rider and usually ride between 2-300 miles in an outing, just tooling around locally I already notice an improvement.

Spencer said it would take a few tanks of gas to break it in, sounds like a great excuse to go hit the mountains.

Please let us know how you like it. I periodically look for an OEM seat so that I could send off to Spencer for his LD treatment. What I really like about his work, is that just looking at it, you would never know anything was done to it. My Dirt Road seat is very comfortable - did a 730 mile day last fall and my butt was fine. I just wish it wasn't so thick.

I took a pretty picture. The -1/+2 set up is going to get me in trouble.

You just made me feel better about letting mine go for a little over 20K.

Coming from a non adjustable FZR600, FZ1 forks with worn oil are still a step up. I’d much rather ride than wrench, sometimes I just push that sentiment a little too far.

I got the Gen2 back into street trim. I last had it at the track a couple months ago, and have had slicks on still, hoping I'd get one more track-day in. Alas, Jake is coming to pick her up next weekend! So everything to make it street legal went back on, and I'll have the slicks swapped out for some touring tires next week. Gonna throw a Bridgestone T31 on the rear, and a Michelin Power RS up front. Those will let him scoot around California for a couple days with me, before he rides it back to Texas!

Going to try to figure out what's wrong with my throttle return cable today. The throttle's been super stiff and while exploring why, I noticed that it's caused by the return cable.

For those curious, this started after I swapped the cable, so it's likely my fault. I just don't know what I did wrong. I also don't see an adjustment on the return cable so if anyone knows how I can adjust it, that'll be great. Might just leave it out for now if I can't find why it's acting weird until I get a new one.

You definitely don't want to leave it out, that could result in a stuck-open throttle condition which even in small amounts could lead to some exciting (and potentially dangerous) situations.

Ask anyone with a Throttlemeister style throttle lock who didn't disengage it completely. Or just me, as I may be the only one.

I won't leave it out indefinitely but I can't miss the track day. The spring should be enough to close throttle for a day. If I decide I need a new cable, I'll ping CrazyBiker who's been trying to sell his cables for a minute and grab those

Due to desperate situations (no car and waiting on the part in the mail) I rode my FZR with only one cable. Resulted in my first and only stoppy to keep from rear ending a minivan in traffic and a minor burnout when the free spinning rear landed back down.

Beautiful day, warm temps and a blue sky. Screaming down the long straight, throttle pinned WFO, zipping past 150mph, coming up on brake marker........ Yeah, what could go wrong.
