    Re: 2005 VX110 Random cylinder misfire and no power

    Thread update:

    Finally got back to this, and it has not jumped time. I checked and it is spot on.

    I will try to swap fuel rail and check coils/plugs for spark this week or next.

    Yeah I tried new plugs, and known good coils from another VX I have. Same issue.

    I'm wondering if it jumped time?

    I checked the injectors and all 4 have a nice spray pattern and no dripping. 51 psi at the rail.

    Any ideas?

    Check compression. Just went through this on my '08 VX, stuck valve on one cylinder, guessing you have the same issue.

  21. Re: 2016 FX HO leans to left when riding in choppy water

    Yeah I know, but on my '08 Vx with 2 riders and one footwell full, it def leans over. I tend to idle with 1 foot in water, and that will fill the well.
  22. Re: Small oil leak around oil separator '08 Yamaha VX

    I did just have the oil tank off, and didn't replace the 2 o-rings on the nipples that go to tank. They looked brand new but now I see the service manual says "not reusable". Wonder if that is it?

  24. Small oil leak around oil separator '08 Yamaha VX

    If I remember right, isn't there tabs to pry the impeller housing off? My salt water '08 came off easily just prying, no heat or puller needed.

  29. Re: Yamaha 2012 VX Deluxe overheating alarm. Sand in the engine?

    Based on Frenchie's technique of reversing the oil cooler bracket bolts with motor in, I would just pull the head. Its not that hard.

  31. Re: Yamaha 2012 VX Deluxe overheating alarm. Sand in the engine?

    Yep, and when you do it, take Frenchie's tip and reverse the oil tank to head bolts so the head can be removed in the future without removing oil tank.

    I see now in your PS that you have good compression, spark, and fuel on all 4 cylinders.

    Are you sure it is in time, cams in relation to crank?

    You check compression? That is the first thing you need to do. If you got the shims so mixed up, you have valves not seating, would do it.
