    Question Keeping the Wheel on the Ground FZ6

    I did a lot of riding this weekend and noticed an odd characteristic of my Yamaha FZ6. During a hard throttle in second, no matter how much weight I put toward the front of the bike, the front tire starts to float. The bike is just past break-in so this weekend was the first that I was able to really ride hard. Any Ideas for keeping it down?

    ask coolio if you can borrow his wheel weights. you may have to modify them slightly, or add more sand.

    And just HOW is this a problem?

    The cure is a to get even further forward, lean your head down over the bars more and if the "problem" persists then to use a little bit less right hand twisting.

    .... or attend stunt school to learn how to carry the wheelies better....
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
