Hi any one share which mechanic shop is best to do XJR 400 bike,

My is leaking oil at left side engine cover. I suspect inside oil seal spoilt any one share your idea?

 

that problem is quite common

the XJR often leak at the top engine cover

i used to do mine at Chong Aik Serangoon but that shop & mech have since moved, and i have not seen him for awhile now

some recco Ah Chong Planet

myself, i used to patron K&T at Ubi Road 1, Blk 3007. (btw Planet is also on the same stretch of road, just other end)

so maybe you want to look em up.

 

price wise, not so sure as mine was some years back.

hope these help.

 

have it rectify quicky. a heavy leakage of engine oil, may harm the lub system, esp so, since XJR is air cooled bike.

Hi all any advice, when I start my bike cold start morning or start 3hrs later my RPM drops low until the bike off. And take few minutes normal. Sometimes take long ride until expressway my bike power sudden cut like petrol choke. But engine gets hotter RPM become 1.5k but not stable up & down. If any one meet before this kind of problem pls advice me thanks

i ridden the xjr400 for 7-8 years and 'the electronics part at right side of the carburetor' have not given me any problem at all.

about the idling being low, how about seeing a mech for it? sometimes, a improper fuel / air adjustment is all it take to normalise the bike idlling again.

 

an increase in RPM, is notthing to be worried about.

check the air filter, carbs, throttle adjustment first before worrying.

the petrol system uses vacuum, so have it look in.

 

have you seen any mech as reccomended here?

Yup I went to the shop which I bought the bike, they change the new carb to engine rubber, airfilter cost $250,and then they ask me to try but still same problem.

mechanic told me maybe carb electronic part (TPS) spoilt, The part price is 280. But I want know that TPS doing what function and if spoilt what will happened the bike or can ride disconnect the TPS wire and use, before spent money to change that because mechanic also not confident.

o my, thats bad news.

r u going to seek a second opinion from a different mech?

 

i read again & what air filter is that costing up to $250? stock air filters is less than $60 & aftermarket K&N filters cost about S$120/- Oh wait, u must meant that the new carb rubbers x4 + airfilter = $250/-.

 

i recco you go to K&T, see clifford hereafter, just ask for second opinion.

or try Ah Chong from Planet, no, i dont patron Planet, but older members who seen him(and SBF members alike), have positive reviews, just long waiting period.

Hello everyone... I owned a 2003 XJR400R since May 2012 and so far so good except for the sticky gearing that I hoped to solve it. Up shifting is ok as long as its about 4K RPM onwards but lower rpm ie 2K, the shift tends to be very rough. Down shifting is usually rough so wants to know what is a good and proven EO to recommend for smoother shifting at lower rpm or like in city riding for the XJR400R. Or is there some other issue to look at?

FYI, I am a casual weekend rider, just took on riding again this year after having stopped riding for 30+ years. Abit tired of driving car and constantly stuck in jams.. :) Thanks in advance.

for one, let me welcome you onboard the rare yamaha XJR400RR. WelcoME to XJR Singapore(2007-2012). (find us @FB Club XJR Singapore)

 

before having your clutch plates/steel plates check, try engine oil Motul 300V(a little pricey at betw S$28-30++) but is known to be smooth by XJR users here.

personally, i used to use 7100 Motul for years & at times when my pocket allows it then, the 300v.

 

or you could have a good trusty mech to have a look in at your clutch plates, (or perhaps first of all, try adjusting your clutch cables?)

 

its a good bike with little mechanical problems, one that i rode for 7-8 years from 2004-2011, before selling it off to a fellow XJR Sgp member & a friend, in late 2011.

no regrets & lotsa satisfaction ride. one that remained closed to the heart, always.

 

hope the suggestion here helps.

 

Ride safe, corner deep.

Welcome back to ride..

 

to answer to you:

 

1) First check you shift level and liknkage..was it loosen, or any ware off sign? Level should be firm and and smooth (lubricate)...ware off level and linkage always provide insufficient throw that nessary to engage and disengage clutch...

 

2) Is your clutch hydraulic? if yes check clutch fluid, bleed if too old..or any leak on clutch pump, check pump seal replace if necessary..I believe this is the main issue.

 

3) If you mileage is more than 120k...go and get you clutch plate check...this should be the final stage.

TPS is throttle position sensor...hardly spoil.

 

I suggest you check your crank case pressure..if it is difficult to do, get a pressure relief cap..and see what happen, before you spend big money again...

 

My guess is that your cooling system is down..so the whole engine heat built up and inturn lead to pressure build up...that is why you found all the leak..and then engine stall.....

 

Check the pressure to varify pressure build up...if this is the case...check cooling to cure it...

 

Yes bro he cheat me, I have to find good mech and clean and tune carb should be ok bro :)
