Hello all

I have today bought a 1999 600. it has done 32000 miles and is quite tatty - I only paid £650 for it though

I have previously owned 2 x 600 early fazers, 2 x thundercats and a naked FZ6 - so I must like them!!

It has a Scorpion race can on it and I took it for a test ride before I bought it- it rides ok, but did have a stutter on full throttle. I put it down to having a race can on it and that it has been stood for a year. I plan to put the standard can back on, put new plugs in and have the carbs balanced.

I read with interest this thread and it was good Saturday night reading!!

The paintwork is tatty so was planning on having it re-sprayed professionally. maybe a current white colour?

I hope that the above work will make it run properly, but will keep you guys informed

I don't normally read books let alone full blown novels but having completed this one i've  learned that it really is best to read the end first  :rollin
So as i now appear to be suffering a bad  'stutter'  (started mildly last year i think)  im going to get the multimeter out and start with testing the regulator.


Hopefully posting your trials & t's Paul will help ease mine, after a few paracetamol ofcourse  :\

I've got the same problem :( Bike has an aftermarket can and pipes, my regular mechanic suggests it could be down to this.




So far I have done the following (some just because it needed it):
  • Oil and Filter change
  • New Spark Plugs
  • New Spark Pug Caps
  • Brake Fluid change
  • Carbs Balanced
  • Checked air filter - looks pretty good still
  • TPS Checked and all good
  • Replace Coils

Still to do:
  • Regulator/Rectifier
Anyone have any other thoughts as I'm committed to fixing it now!

Did you cut about 10mm off the end of the HT leads when putting the new caps on? The internal wires get pushed into the outer cover of the leads over time making the connection to the cap screw not as good as it can be.
Do a quick TPS check and make sure that's positioned correctly.
Replace the fuel filter.
Difficult to suggest an air filter "looks okay", do you know the history of it? If not change it, personally i would go for a K&N, but if not don't buy the cheapest one you can find as they can be crap.

i read earlier about sealed in ht leads to the coils
i cannot garruntee on the fazers but these often can be redone with a bit of time and patience
i did some on my gsx1100 chop build i just used a bradawl and a little screwdriver while sat in the garden watching youtube
just started picking out the epoxy that was holding in the ht leads then yanked it hard (then got back to working on coils)
once out i was able to clean up the surfaces with screwdriver scraping, inserted new HT's and a bit of epoxy, job done

Thanks for the thoughts.  Forgot to mention that I'd checked the tps.


I'll order an air filter :)


running out of patience and cash to throw at it.

Just bear in mind, "if" your air filter was clogged up, then the air would've been struggling to get to the carbs, which in turn would give you a false reading on a carb balance.
So if it starts running ropey with a nice clean air filter then that could be the reason.
It's unlikely but certainly possible, as i found out myself.
