I'm a bit concerned about the sound of my engine from cold. I have always had a high pitch tone that rises in tone according to the revs.
The same sound that the old XJ-series engine always had. (weow-weow) :cool:

It dissapears shortly after the engine has become warmer.

But last I had a visit from another FZ6 owner. When he was about to drive home late night I heard that his doesn't AT ALL make that sound from cold.

Now the Q is.....does anyone have the same observations like me?

Mine does that when I'm starting it from a DEAD cold.....and noticed that it smells like it's running rich as well, but if I have already ridden earlier in the day, the effect isn't so bad. I'm guessing it's just a by-product of the injection system acting as a choke for the first bits of the day.

Your friend probably just rode around earlier, is my best educated guess, but if it really bothers you, get it checked out.

I notice the EFI pumping at idol. Kind of a high pitched buzz. I hear it ar low R's and comming to a stop. Where do you hear yours again?

I only hear it on dead cold engine start.

The first 5 minutes (approx.)....strongest around idle revs.
Im suspecting it to be due to missing sync of carburettors.
Another phenomenon I heard comparing to the other FZ was
that mine took longer time to loose revs when closing throttle...(negative gas response ?)

Just an off the wall question here, what is the ambient temperature outside when you first crank the bike?

Perhaps you are using too thick of an oil and it is not flowing properly until it gets heated up. Just a thought.
