    As for not starting, perhaps all of the safety interlocks were not satisfied. Next time make certain the clutch is all the way in and/or if parked, bike is in Neutral.
    And yes, key on engine not running the CEL (check engine light) will be on.

    Read up on Rev Matching.
    PS the FZ6 gang on 600riders.com biggest complaint is the initial drop into gear. The Yamaha Clunk when the oil and engine are cold. I roll down the drive to reduce the ClunK.
    thanks for reply. I always leave in 1st gear when park and is it bad? aand which oil do you recomend? I have to change now

    No harm leaving a bike in gear, its the clunk from N to 1st that we hate. I exercise the clutch when cold and running to separate the plate, decouple the engine from the trans.

    I use Amsoil, motorcycle oil, 10-40 for the FZ6. Good stuff.

    I used mobil 1 for 3 years in my bike till amsoil became localy sourced, never had an issue with my bike and i rode the bike daily put 10k on her with no issues, 1st gear was always clunky, but nowhere near as thudy/ cluncky as my ducati is.

    I also have some clunky gear shifts from 3-4-5-6. I've been trying to find exactly which gears have it cause i know sometimes 5-6 does not. I believe it happens when i shift in low to mid revs. Really high revs is the smoothest shifting.
