Per­for­mance En­hance­ment

Bike India - - Technomail -

I am an avid fan of Bike In­dia and would like to say that it is the best mo­tor­cy­cle mag­a­zine in the coun­try. I have a ques­tion re­gard­ing my five-year-old Yamaha FZ-S. The bike has done 50,000 km and I want to change its pis­ton and cylin­der. I want to re­place the cur­rent car­bu­ret­tor set-up with that from the new FZ (that is, the fuel-in­jected 149-cc one). I also want to fit a Daytona ex­haust on my FZ for added per­for­mance. Can it all be done? Please ad­vise me. Awa­neesh Tripathi, Luc­know

It is pos­si­ble to con­vert your car­bu­ret­tor FZ into a fuel-in­jected one, but the cost in­volved would not jus­tify the ef­fort. You may, how­ever, go ahead with re­plac­ing the cur­rent set-up with the stan­dard cylin­der and pis­ton meant for the car­bu­ret­tor model. As for the Daytona ex­haust, you may im­prove the per­for­mance of the bike by fit­ting it, but see to it that the ser­vice per­son­nel at Yamaha tune the bike up ac­cord­ingly.
