Exup, some strange black magic?
« on: 10 November 2017, 03:52:52 PM »
I've replaced the exup cables, as I found one had snapped. 2002 Fazer thou, 42k miles.


I've been trying to adjust them for ages now, and I just can't get it right. It won't centre after running. I lined the cable holder bit up with the hole and adjusted the cables (the lower cable is maxxed out pretty much), but then when I run it, then turn it off, the cable holder bit stays at about the 10 o'clock position. Every time!!


The rev counter doesn't move at all when I put the ignition light on. The bike runs and I don't notice any running issues, I'm just not sure that it's running at it's optimum level?


I'm pretty confused and not sure what else to do apart from maybe send it to my local dealer.

It's meant to stay at the 10 o'clock position after running. :) 

Try this to confirm you've got it adjusted correctly.  Remove the cover and with an 8mm spanner rotate the valve clockwise to fully open.  Now turn on the ignition.  The valve should reset to put the fork over the alignment hole. 

If it's not 100% aligned at this point, turn the ignition off and make the necessary cable adjustments to get it correct.

Repeat the test procedure again.  Valve fully clockwise, then ignition on.

Hiya Nordboy,
                    Sounds like you have set it up OK, here's a pic of where mine ends up when its parked up with the Engine Off in case it helps, (with no known issues that I'm aware of). I'm guessing that's what you mean by the 10 o'clock position.

Cheers, Mitch.

Switch the engine off with the kill switch and it will move back to the set position.

This is probably the best way to check it when adjusting.
Engine off with kill switch adjust cables to set alignment
Start engine
let it idle for a few seconds
Switch engine off with kill switch
Check the alignment

Repeat above if necessary

If adjustment takes a while, disconnect the headlight bulbs on the American imports or post 03 model, (stops the headlight draining the battery).

Thanks all, puts my mind at rest a bit. Mitch, that's exactly where mine ends up.


Think it's actually ok, I'm amazed as I have little to no mechanical skills. :)
