Hello All.
« on: 31 October 2018, 03:45:53 PM »
A bit late with the intro seeing as I joined the forum about 5 months ago. Anyway I fancied a foxeye FZS600 years ago, but got diverted onto other bikes and then when I was considering a change I came across a one owner 2003 model with only 13000 miles on it. It looked almost new and was a very good price so here I am.I am really chuffed with it. It handles, accelerates and brakes so well and is so smooth and comfy. Perhaps because I am an old git I don't go for all the latest electronic gizmos, I like to think that I am skillful enough to control the bike myself so another plus point for me.Oh yeah, I like to do my own maintenance and the fazer seems fairly easy to work on.
A Happy Chappie  :D

Welcome Salty. My 2003 Foxeye is now on 48k with no issues. So hopefully you've got many trouble free miles in front of you.
PS it's customary to post a piccy so we can all admire  :D

I agree, looks in excellent condition. A gem of a find with such low mileage. Excuse my ignorance, but what is the object cable tied near the rear sprocket ?

I'm guessing a Scottoiler. Mine is tied up the same way
