will still hang around and answer anything i can


Why don't you put photos up, number plate, etc, on here so people can keep an eye out?
Think there's a website for stolen vehicles as well if you have a search.

Not everyone uses Facebook, and.....we are a UK/Worldwide bike group who specialize in Fazers, meaning we would spot one quicker than others.
This should be the first place you put photos up!

Putting forks back together done one all went well.
fork seal and fork oil change......


first one done and all went well

second one
Fitted new oil seal and dust seal.
next fitted fork inner into the fork lower and the lower is jammed.
undo end bolt and tried again and again but still jams.
So in the future i will be fitting it back together like the picture below but then I will need to buy a proper seal driver and not use a DIY seal driver...

Adjust the chain.  Took front sprocket cover off to give it a good clean but it wasn't too bad, so a little degreaser and a rag and 5 mins and all good.  The new englarged front sprocket nut was still sitting there a treat too.
Money doesn't buy happiness, but it buys beer, and that helps!

Had a great day on Saturday at Bedford Autodrome giving it everything. Clicked over to 89k while blatting around the track. Did 130 miles mostly at the redline and blew through 28 litres of super unleaded on the track.

Almost ashamed to say, but I installed RGB LED position lights on it for visibility. Comes with a remote control too :D.


Oh, and installed a GPS tracker: https://www.ebay.com/itm/KKmoon-GPS-Real-Time-Tracker-Car-Motorcycle-Electric-GSM-GPRS-Tracking-Device/291877412726?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

First post , so see how it goes. Went for short spin after MotoGP to get some new chain lube and decided to get Chain Wax. Never tried this before. Anyone know how good or bad it is.

I use it. Have a search on here for chain lube, wax and you will find loads of past posts discussing all manner lubes for the chain. I use  Puoline Chain Tech. Heres a good one for you http://foc-u.co.uk/index.php/topic,20030.50.html

I've been getting achey hands on the Fazer which have gotten worse over time and I keep catching myself leaning on them, so on some advice I got a set of bar risers to try out:


Bars are currently spaced 20mm away, the kit includes extra 5mm and 10mm spacers to move them even further if necessary, but this is already pushing the brake hose a bit, so I'll have to get a longer one made if I stick with them. Rest of the cables have plenty of slack, and the bar mounts being angled means it doesn't hit the fairing at full lock :)

That gap is bothering me though... I'll have to get a deeper clamp top and skim it to fit!

Ive used Wurth chain wax for years. Great stuff, not messy and keeps the chain in good order.
Then again, I do have a chain cleaning OCD  :lol

Well used chain wax and after a week , with a couple of wet runs, result. Roughly about 250miles and definetly a lot less mess than lube and still a good covering of wax on the chain.  :)

Well not today but yesterday, I adjusted the chain and gave the rear caliper, pots an pads a good clean. I should have done the fronts too and adjusted the clutch while as was at it. It'll need to wait till next weekend now.
Treat everything in life the way a dog would- if you can't eat it or foc it, forget it.

Overhauled rear caliper with a stainless kit. Time to open the bleed nipples and let gravity do the work while I get my tea.  :b
