    Do you have a copy of the service manual?
    Looks like you need to remove the intake grate - themjet pump.
    Need a couple of yamaha holders to remove the impeller and bearings.

    If you email me your email address - I can send you the PDF

    i was able to get the housing out with just a little downward pressure on the rideplate, changed the impeller and back together in less than a hour but feel free to send me the pdf of the manual [email protected]

    Given the pump is setup like the FZ.... I took my pump out with the plate on!

    If your plate is machined much (angle), the plate will at the minimum have to be dropped-down to clear the housing. That's what I found on my FZS.

    +1. rideplate needs to be dropped on the FZ. IMO just take it off, way easier access to the pump bolts.
