It doesn't really work on my iPad, Unfazed - but, is that a link to "" ?.

That's the site I use for checking out changes resulting from sprocket and tyre swaps with different teeth and wheel sizes etc.
No it is not from that site.It's written using microsoft excel and saved as  XLSX,
Apples spreadsheet software Numbers should be able to read it or Google docs

Forgot to let you lads know, I uploaded a file on the difference changing sprockets or tyres will make to the speed of the Fazer 1000.
It is an XLSX file which allows you to enter the Sprocket sizes or tyre sizes and and see the difference it makes to the speed in each gear.I found it I think on the FZ1 site on the net a good while ago and modified it to make it easier to follow, hope the original owner does not mind.
Forgot all about it until some one asked a question about sprocket changes on Facebook.It is under useful stuff in the downloads section

Doesn't matter as long as the sprocket is the correct size for the chain and shaft. The rubber is only a damper to quieten the chain.

Slinky glide from wemoto
Did you contact WeMoto about it, they can very good about replacing stuff that may be faulty.

I'm a map man, might use the phone sat nav if I am really, really, really stuck, especially after accidents block the major routes out of of cities.

Prefer stopping and getting directions now and then, never had an issue using maps anywhere in Europe

Though about going the Motor Factors route, but in the end bought the genuine item. The 600 is older and has over 90,000miles with out any hose issues yet.

New hoses now fitted and fresh coolant added. Thankfully I only lost less than half a litre of coolant which was not enough to cause engine issues. Drained 1.8 litres from it and had to add  2.2 litres.

All sounds good, will have to take it for a good run tomorrow  :)

FZS 600 Back on the road, new fork seals and new headrace taper roller bearings fitted.For info. the headrace bearings on the 98-03 FZS600 are exactly the same as the 01-05 FZS1000.  :) I replaced FZS1000 ones a few weeks ago as they were becoming a bit notchy (bought the taper roller bearings from Marksman) and when I needed to do the fork seals on the 600 I decided to check the condition of the headrace, they were not too bad but decided to change them as the front end was apart.
I noticed they looked the same size as the 1000 bearings I had not dumped yet.
Did a bit of checking they had the same part numbers.
I ordered another set for 1000 from Marksman they are listed on the site as FZ1 01-05 (he does not list a set for the FZS600) and they are a perfect fit. :woot

Sent you a PM

What is the under seat code it so I can figure out which model it is?
Have you the same keys for all locks?
Check the plug/socket the ignition wires plug into and tell me was colours are in that going into the loom. There will be 2 plugs/sockets 

Are there 5 wires in the ignition? What are the other colours?
Reason for asking is that there are 3 different switches on the Fazer1000
one has 4 wires, another has 5 wires and the third one has 7 wires.

Silverstone MotoGP clerk of the course Stuart Higgs  had already secured the services of support staff ready for a Monday race before it was blocked by factory teams.  Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda and KTM are all scheduled to test at Aragon on Wednesday, so deemed that more important than racing on Monday .

Usually the scrotes who hot wire them bunch the ignition wires together, if this was the case with yours then it most likely has blown two critical diodes in the Starter Cut out relay under the left side panel, these two diodes control the operation of the Neutral light and the sidestand switch. Did the Fuel pump run when you turn on the kill switch?

Let me know if the all the ignition wires were bunched together when you got it back and if the pump works and I will PM you how to work around it.

2 to 3 inches sounds a lot  even for worn Cush drives.
Remove the rear wheel, pull the sprocket and its hub from the wheel.
The rubbers inside are what you need to replace they will probably fall out.

Usually about 6 of them and probably around £10 to £12

No need to be baffled. It's a pipe, they don't last forever. Splits can happen for no apparent reason.
At least you've found it before it got really bad.
Yes I agree splits can happen any time, but considering it only has 45000 miles on it, I am a bit baffled. :eek Any failures I have seen in hoses were in excess of 100000 milesThere is no strain in the area, the pipe it connects to is about an inch away from the split so not edges near it.The only thing in that effects the area is grease/oil from the chain seeps on to it, but I have never seen a hose crack from grease/oil on them regularly.

The Yamaha hose was £50 incl postage, which was not to bad for a OEM part I suppose.

Not really an item that gives much trouble on the fzs1000, for that reason I would risk a second hand one.Bypassed a few Suzuki ones and an old R1, unfortunately I never had an Fzs1000 on apart to see what was inside.
My theory is usually that if something is not working open and see if it can be fixed. You can't break something that's already broken, as the worst you can do is fix it.
If you do decide to open it post a few pictures of the internals.
The R1 has a little pendulum inside it and track day users fill it with silcone to stop the pendulum. A severe enough tank slapper or very quick change of direction like two quick bends in succession can cause it to operate and cut the engine, unlikely to ever happen in normal road use.

The offending Pipe,  new one due Tuesday. Still baffled as to how it happened
It is cracked right at the edge of the protective rubber covering, rolled cover back to show it in the pics.

Apparently they came like that. I asked that question when son bought the 1000 I have now and the original owner said they came like that as he had bought the bike new and had only ever put a givi rack and top box on it.

Little update, the the main return coolant pipe to the pump has split at the end of the protective covering on the pump side of the Alternator. I did notice it had gone very soft in comparsion with the section near the rad. I checked the bypass hose and it was also very soft near the pump. Ordered both to be safe, but it is going to take about  8 working days to get them as they were  not in stock. :'( :'( Will post a picture of the offending item when I remove it, never had anything like this happen on any of my bikes. I have seen it in one of my cars years ago.
Went to fit the head race bearings on the 600 only to realise the shop had given the wrong seal with the bottom yolk bearing and have to wait until Friday before that arrives  :'( :'( Foc, never rains but it pours.

Arrived home this evening to find coolant driping from the left side of the 1000  :grumble :'( Looks like the bypass hose, remembered seeing an nick in it when changing the chain 25000km ago. May have been pinched by the sprocket cover or damaged when the chain broke before I bought it.   All bikes off the road now, front end off the 600 to replace fork seal and head race bearing and swinging arm off the serow to have it painted  :'( :'( All is not lost my son is not using his fazer this week or next :woot

Cables are the same length but will only go on one way correctly.
The pulley is located correctly in the picture as we have often seen it in reverse.. Remove the pulley remove the cables from it. Screw the adjusters fully home.  Swap the cables over in the bracket to see if they locate better.

Were the cables ever changed?
Check the markings.
The early Slinky Glide one had the adjusters too short and could run out of adjustment.
However shops like WeMoto (where I bought mine) changed them free of charge and this was after 3 years
