1st gear wheelie
« on: 26 September 2012, 07:37:43 PM »
hi all just wondering since i put new plugs in the fazer its bloody quick ,for instance when i pulled away at the lights a bit up the revs the front end got light so much so that i got a fright and let off the throttle do they all do this or is my bike special ,in Ireland these bikes are learner legal and pretty cheap to insure ,im not complaining its great to have a fairly quick bike but i was just wondering

if i get a bit keen wit the throttle and or clutch the front can get a bit light! it surprises me how much of a change a new service etc makes to bike tho,new oil meens smoother clutch ,gears and engine new plugs,filter etc seem to smooth things out and bit more perfomance,have fun and ride safe

they're only learner legal if you restrict them.
I printed out DUDE'S instructions...even on paper they are pretty confusing...Has he been INGESTING some MIND ALTERING substance......???

They're a highly strung, over revving toy, give it plenty and it responds, all too well.......  :b

It's amazing the difference a new set of plugs (even on their own) can make; you never notice the drop-off in performance until you get it back after a decent service.

I had a 50cc 'ped some time back, and that would lift the front after a new plug and a keen throttle hand...
