only 12x8 (wife free zone) but big enough for bike bench chair tools etc , saving up for a sealey space saver lift next



Great looking shed Matt.
If the floor in your new shed is tongue and groove boards timber (T&G) place a piece of 3/4 inch ply under where the life will live, the casters on the lift may disappear  through the 8mm thick T&G boards and end up with your bike laying on its side after falling 2 or 3 foot from the lift.
Don't mess with the guy if the guy don't mess with you.

Iam with tommy.....good quality ply is a lot stronger than OSB ......I would cut a 300mm square of 25mm ply just for the center stand to sit on and another piece for your new space saver lift.....theres a lot of weight in a small area  , peace of mind and all that......

I ordered the part from Russia. So I HOPE that its a right hand side headlamp. I live in Norway. If not i've got a headlamp for sale 😁

I've hooked up the 400 headlamp to a battery and tried to see the pattern.. But I can't really make out if it's left hand side vs right hand side. Is there an easy test I can do to check? I can't find the serial number on the headlamp either. All the numbers are identical to the one installed on the bike already. (but the reflectors and bulbs are obviously different.

Apparently the 400 Boxeye headlamp reflector and setup is much, much better than the 600 Boxeye.


My understanding is that both of the bulbs (2 X H7 twin filament bulbs ) on the 400 Boxeye are the same as the 600 foxeye, so both bulbs are H7 and the same so both beams are on by default on the 400 headlight set up, but again if my understanding is right (Please correct me if i am not) that they still fall short of the Foxeye head lamps because of the foxeyes larger reflector and better design. 
Don't mess with the guy if the guy don't mess with you.

The bulbs on a 600 are H4 high beam and H1 low beam, the 400 is 2 H4's.  On the 400 the both bulbs are on for low and high unlike the 600which has H1 for low beam and H4 for high beam and only the high beam filament works.  The reflectors on the 600 are also only low/high beam for each side/bulb.  Even when the 600 is modded so both are on, its still a big trade off as the high beam reflector has to be lowered to stop dazzling on coming, which then means loss of high beam.   The 400 has dual reflectors and all filaments on the bulbs work.


Quite why the 600 has such a piss poor set up is beyond me just penny pinching perhaps.

According to what I can decipher there is no left/right headlamp for Japan.


This site lists 4YR-84310-00-00 as part number, with 5DM-84310-00-00 as the replacing headlamp.



https://en.impex-jp.com/catalogs/moto/yamaha-other/FZ-400/31791/Headlight__assy-971876.html




The GBR headlamp uses the part code 5DM843101000, while the rest are 5DM843100000.

when i took my fairing off and pulled apart the headlights i was shocked that it was a h1/h4 setup and instantly took a dislike to it
i run dominator headlights in a stacked posistion using good h4's in both
the bike had been dropped by previous owner and the fairing was cracked and frame twisted so it was the easiest option for better lights
-wish i knew then what i know now

Japan drives on the left the same as we do so there wouldn't be a different part number for the 400 headlight as it was only ever made for their home market.

Why?

The EU regs at the time only allowed a single dipped beam light. H1 or H4 makes no difference. 55w is 55w.
The best fix is HIDS but if you want dual lights on for dipped it is a single cable to run from under the tank to the H4 top connector.

That might be so. But the replacement for the out-of-production FZ400 headlamp is the same number as the standard headlamp, not the GBR headlamp.

Looking good, is that side panels you have fitted? any chance of some pictures as I've never seen a fully faired Fazer before?
2 Wheels good
4 Wheels Bad
3 Wheels better than 4 unless there are meant to be 4

Sure thing. Previous owner had a bit of a tumble so I repainted them with rattlecans.








I believe these are the same: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/YAMAHA-FZS-600-FAZER-1998-2001-TUNING-SIDE-FAIRINGS-PANELS-LEFT-RIGHT-/160660732338?hash=item25682039b2:m:mvQqV5iycjZzEpNGFvLuaCA

Very Nice  8) I would get some for my  :faz but it's that Vivid Coctail Red paint job which is a complete Foccing pain in the arse to colour match and I wouldn't want to have to payout to re-paint the whole bike. However, I will keep it in mind for if I ever had a fall and it had to be re-painted any way, but fingers crossed that won't happen  :lol
