Rebuilding Rolling Chassis FZ8


New member
Hey all,

I’m a new member just picked up this clean title rolling chassis FZ8 someone used to do a motor swap into an FZ8..

I’m slowly getting most parts I need I just need some guidance hopefully someone can provide in regard to mounting the motor. I purchased this mix box of nuts and screws which included the two long main engine bolts I believe.

But when looking at the manual it shows I need a special tool from Yamaha to tighten down some adjustment bolts. Is anyone here familiar with installing the motor on these frames?

Here’s a pic of the bike

I suggest to have a look on the R1 owner site. the installation is probably quite similar (at least for the 2007 R1) and as there are some needs for engine maitnenance on R1 you will have probably some info there.
