hi all just got my first fazer
« on: 17 February 2014, 10:02:04 PM »
hi everyone
i have a honda cbf1000 2007 as my new bike but clutch went on my car last week too expensive to fix so by chance ive got a
1998 fazer 600 as a cheap eveyday run around
my plan is to clean and tidy her up and scrap the car and for the first time in 20 years run a bike everyday to work
im quite looking foward to it really   :D


always had a bike if possible in my life prob about 20 so far if i add em up
live in hastings aged 44 married 2 girls work as a baker during the day


ive already had a look through some of the hints and tips but my nose will deff be stuck in the laptop as i progress through my tidy up etc
cheers all marcus

Welcome, man!

A boxeye 600 - the best of the crop! We have them all here: the obsessive cleaners (Doddsie), the barely running (Dead Eye), the fighters (Noggythenog), the modders (Ruby Racing) and general nutcases (me!). So welcome, you'll fit right in!  :D

Oh, and...

Ah, black, the fastest colour!  :D

Spot the mods time - double bubble, longer mirrors (Fazer Thousand), the obvious top box and rack... What have I missed?  :)

Greetings madmac, and welcome to the foc-ers! Glad to see you picked the fastest colour boxeye, by far the best, but I'm sure others on here will deny that, the fools :P:D

As I always say, it's the only bike you'll ever need, bit not the only one you'll ever want! Get rid of the cbf, and get a mid life crisis bike, but stick with your fazer like it's your best buddy!
Stop polishing it and ride the bloody thing!!

the cbf is very comfy very quick nice riding position
the screen buffeting is bad so will need to look at that at some point
i might swop it for a sports bike at some point as i have the fazer now
two simular bikes etc


so far only 40 miles in the fazer all in crappy rain but its a great bike
carbs are a bit shitty bike sat for 3 years in a garage
ive replaced the plugs ordered a KN filter today
oil and filter change  will run a few miles through the carbs and if needed will strip and clean carbs in the summer
got them balanced by a friend yesterday and they were out so that help


key very hard to turn on so sprayed the barrel up hopefully that sort itself out
tick over sort of hunts !! 1.5 to 2.5 which is a ????? atm
