Book Excerpt: 1986-1990 Yamaha YX600 Radian, FZ600 Repair and Service Manual on CD


This chapter provides complete service procedures for the transmission and the external and the internal shift mechanism.

Yamaha does not provide any service specifications for any of the components covered in this chapter.


The gearshift mechanism is located on the same side of the crankcase as the clutch assembly. To remove the internal shift mechanism (shift drum and shift forks), it is necessary to remove the engine and split the crankcase. This procedure is covered in this chapter.

CAUTION: The gearshift lever is subject to a lot of abuse. If the bike has been in a hard spill, the gearshift lever may have been hit and the gearshift shaft bent.

It is very hard to straighten the shaft without subjecting the crankcase halves to abnormal stress where the shaft enters the crankcase.

If the shaft is bent enough to prevent it from being withdrawn from the crankcase, there is little recourse but to cut the shaft off with a hacksaw very close to the crankcase.

It is much cheaper in the long run to replace the shaft than risk damaging a very expensive crankcase assembly.

All models are equipped with a transistorized ignition system, a solid-state system that uses no breaker points. The ignition system on the 1986-1988 models is different from the one used on the 1989-1990 models. Where differences occur, they are identified in this section.

On 1986-1988 models, the ignition pickup coils are mounted on the left-hand end of the crankcase adjacent to the end of the crankshaft. As the projection on the timing plate, attached to the crankshaft, passes a pickup coil a signal is sent to the igniter unit. This signal turns the igniter unit transitor alternately ON and OFF.

As the transistor is turned ON and OFF, the current passing through the primary windings of the ignition coil is also turned ON and OFF. Thus it induces the secondary current on the ignition coils secondary windings and produces the current necessary to fire the spark plugs.
