General / Keeping bike kit in garage.
« on: 19 May 2017, 04:06:12 PM »
I am thinking about keeping my bike kit in the garage.
It is one of those precast concrete ones and what concerns me is condensation and damp.
Does anyone else keep their kit in a garage and if so what do you store it in?
Bear in mind I am a Scot living in Yorkshire, being careful with my money is not a trait it is a vocation. :)

General / Black Circles
« on: 13 October 2016, 02:18:49 PM »
I am looking to get 4 new tyres for  the Peugeot boxer  that my son and I share, Black Circles seems to be cheapest and plenty of choice. Has anyone used them in the past, does their system work? Unsure about using them as they seem to use local tyre fitters that sell the same tyres but at a higher price than Black Circles!

General / We are becoming an endangered species!
« on: 22 July 2016, 04:05:21 PM »
Every time I go to somewhere that bikers tend to gather at, be it a show or cafe, they all seem to be as old or older than me. Other week at Fridaythorpe with a mate he commented on it then, and today I had an early morning run to the coast and called in again at Fridaythorpe on the way back at about 10.30am. There were about 10 bikes there and all the riders were of a mature age,  I know there are younger riders out there but they seem to  be few and far between, extinction seems to be looming.

General / Back protector.
« on: 07 April 2016, 08:33:55 PM »
I always use a back protector and have had a few different Knox over the years but they have always been the type that you wear separately, with shoulder straps and and a strap round the waist.
I am looking to get one that will fit in the back of my Alpinestars leather jacket in the existing pocket, any recomendations welcome :)

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Black frame paint
« on: 11 August 2015, 12:37:35 PM »
Washing the bike today I noticed that some of the black paint has rubbed off the swingarm on my gen2 right down to the bare alloy, probably caused by my boot rubbing on it.
Anyone had the same problem and if so what did you use to touch it up? The cheaper the better :)
Also any tips on what to use to polish the black frame up with, it always looks dull.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / LED rear light.
« on: 19 July 2015, 01:08:31 PM »
I have got a 2nd hand led rear light to fit to my FZ1, it is made by Powerbronze but I have no fitting instructions so I am unsure as to the correct wiring.
I have tried searching on the net for some but I have drawn a blank, cannot find any on the Powerbronze website either.
There are 3 wires in the centre, black ,blue and yellow .
One yellow wire on the right hand side.
One blue wire on the left hand side.
So five wires in total.
I am not even sure if it is just a rear light or light plus indicators :o
Does anyone have the instructions for the light that they could email me or put them up on here?
Or a photo of the wiring on the bike if you have one fitted.
Also can anyone confirm if it is a light plus indicators or just a light?
Do I need to fit a resistor as it is an led?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / 142 bhp with custom fuel map
« on: 10 July 2015, 08:10:07 PM »
Thats my dyno figure,  142 bhp with the following mods and custom fuel map to suit,
K & N filter,
O2 eliminator
De catted down pipes
Lars airbox mod,
STANDARD exhaust can with no exup valve.

I know the standard can is an ugly heavy lump, like me, but just cannot get on with aftermarket cans anymore, I just find the noise too intrusive and it detracts from me enjoying the bike.I think that bhp figure is pretty good considering it is with a standard can but torque was only 69, I thought that would have been more.

The custom map that was done for me is perfect, the bike is so smooth and picks up and accelerates so much better, I should of done this 9 months ago instead of pissing about with other peoples maps :\

The map and dyno work were done by Gavin at RaceHQ  in Leeds ,cost £120 and he did over a dozen dyno runs, definitely go there again ,nice and friendly and more than capable. I originaly went there to ask about an ECU reflash but he doesn't do them for the FZ1 as he does not have the software to do it, he mainly does R1s, Fireblades.

And a picture with the standard can on so you can take the piss :)

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Calibrating throttle with Juicebox / PC3 ?
« on: 07 June 2015, 01:17:40 PM »
Yesterday I calibrated my throttle on my FZ1 in the tools menu of my juice box as it always showed as 96%, followed the simple instructions and now it shows zero which is meant to be correct.
I noticed that it was showing a voltage reading  of 0.684 at tickover, does anyone know if this is correct? Does the voltage change as the revs rise?
I have no fault codes showing on dash and the bike is running ok, just wanted to know  if anybody else has done this on their juicebox or PC3 and what voltage reading they got.

Quote ; You can still pick up half decent ones for a grand, do it before people realise its the RD350LC of its generation and start charging stupid .  End quote.

Looks like you 600 guys have got an investment for the future :)
