Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Winter maintenance time
« on: 09 January 2018, 05:50:01 PM »
Decided it starts today , list of jobs: remove AIS, check valve clearances, remove carbs and airbox, remove exhaust and paint engine, replace carb to head rubbers, balance carbs.


So far I've followed the guides on pats page, dropped the coolant - it was just rusty water no antifreeze, removed the AIS and tapped the exhaust ports. That was a pig of a job with such restricted space, I feared my tap was going to snap but I managed it in the end and cut down some M8 cap screws to 10mm to go in.


Front of the engine is filthy so I'm soaking the exhaust nuts overnight as they will have to come off for access.


Does anyone have a blanking cap for the airbox I could buy?

Wow its quick and the front suspension works well.


Had to fit a screen though as it was tearing my arms off the bars and my helmet off above 100.


Its great now but over 115 the screen starts to vibrate!

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Fork springs
« on: 29 July 2017, 12:06:05 AM »
Promoto
Wilbers
Hyperpro
Ohlins


All recommend progressive for the road and linear for the track - makes sense


Are these springs all of good quality and relatively equal?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Headstock adjustment
« on: 02 June 2017, 02:05:49 PM »
I have the factory manual download and it's not clear to me how this is done. On my other bikes it was loosen lower fork clamp bolts then tighten up basically pulling the lower fork clamp up towards the top yoke.


Is it the same? Cos the manual isn't clear at all.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Live wire
« on: 21 May 2017, 08:55:55 PM »
I was changing my rear fender for a new one from Fowlers and I noticed a bolt sticking out the rear bodywork on the LHS. I was horrified to find this unisulated bolt wired direct to the live terminal of the bike! Why the food would someone do this? It was obviously thought about as they had wound a piece of 2.5mm red insulate ire round the live terminal and taped it up. Anyway it's off before it had a chance to short the battery out.  New fender in so the battery has somewhere to sit securely at last. I'm slowly getting the bike back to standard.


The battery was originally wedged in with rags and both terminals were insulated with children's shoe insoles ffs.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Chain adjuster found snapped and bodged
« on: 10 May 2017, 09:58:49 PM »
come to change the rear tyre and a PO has fitted stainless bolts without coppers lip and its snapped on them. So what did they do? Left the stud, put a nut on it then screwed a short bolt in it! You can't adjust the chain!


So I need someone to remove the broken stud for me. As I don't have a welder.

Introduction / Back
« on: 09 May 2017, 07:22:45 PM »
Used to have an FZ6 1st big bike about 7 years ago. Now got an FAzer 1000.


It's rough in places but seems to go ok.


I'm in Lichfield Staffordshire if anyone is near me and knows the bikes let me know I could do with some advice.
