The 'bouncing off the limiter' thing is always ECU, like I said you probably have
a crashed 98hp bike with the FZ6R dash that's not showing proper revs.

The 78hp version of the bike in Europe was NEVER THE S2!

It came looking like the S1 with a dash like this:


Register on that forum you just linked to and ask the guys if anyone got
the 78hp version with your dash. That should solve it.

Anyways, the 78hp version of the bike hit peak torque at 8k and power at
10k revs if I remember correctly, 2000 revs less (both things) then the full
power version.

thanks for you post, Cortez. i wonder how the bike can show proper idle but not proper "revs," though? at least proper revs up to a point

i don't think the bike has been crashed, however. i mean their could have been a minor crash at some point in its 7 year history, but my guess is it was some years ago if so and not a bike fixed up for sale. it just shows no indication or symptom of a recent accident or repair and was still wearing its original tires

i say "was" because i just put new ones on. nothing fancy just come Continental Motion's. but the cornering improvement is dramatic and the bike is smoother overall. plenty happy with it

The rev range is so big, at the idle the error could be 200-300 revs and you
wouldn't even know. No sure way of knowing if the readings are correct
without connecting the ECU of the bike to a computer at a dealership.

And again, that's one of the ways to confirm if this tach was on the FZ6,
by asking a Yamaha dealer that's been selling them for at least 10 years.

...or by looking up the part number.

yes, men. all in good time

when i made the thread i thought maybe some odo fraud had gone on or i had got a "fix'd" bike. but it has turned into a question of horsepower and redline. which i am less interested in being i am so happy with the bikes performance

however i am still curious so my next post, when it comes, will contain concrete info so far as i can get it

i know you all just can't wait!!

so exciting...
