Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Exup valve spacer
« on: 08 July 2016, 01:28:00 PM »
Im trying to get a replacement for the spacer that goes on the inside of the exup blade where it goes into the hole at the back, I have just rang my local Yam dealer  £32 + vat...whaaaaaaat!!!! for a spacer!. If you bought all the parts of yam dealers to build a bike it would cost millions.  so if anyone has one to sell or knows a cheaper outlet I would be grateful to hear of it.  The bike starts and runs fine without it, I just don't know if it would do any long term damage to the valve.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Occasional problem changing gear
« on: 04 August 2015, 08:00:46 PM »
For a while now I seem to have a problem changing down gears if I have brought the bike to a stop without down changing as I slowed, when im stopped and I try to change down it will go down to about 3rd them wont go further without a bit of jiggling about. Other than that the gearbox is fine, no missed/ sticky  gears  and changes down fine if I change down as im slowing. Is this a common problem? or are dark clouds forming on my horizon ?   You can tell that ive just had a week in Scotland , still looking for bloody dark clouds...

Just returned (Wednesday) from 5 days in beautiful Scotland...I say beautiful because I remember it from last time, it was too  cloudy and wet to see much this time. If it wasn't raining it was going to not to mention the gale force winds fu*k me its July.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Exup tale of woe
« on: 07 August 2012, 06:55:20 PM »
Due to me getting the 7g error message I decided to service my exup at the weekend and it looks like ive f*cked it up , when Id fitted it I turned the ignition on,no probs so I went for a ride a few miles down the road the 7g error comes up again , went home stripped it down and refit a couple of times to no avail.
When its all fitted it rotates so far then tightens up and on inspection when I held a straight edge to it its got a slight bevel from the back side bending up. I went to the Yam dealers in Chorley and spoke to a mechanic he told me if its bent its goosed throw it away,then said my best option was to throw it away take the cables of and seal the hole with a bolt,job done. I said as far as I was aware this would have an averse effect on the bikes performance he shrugged and said my options were all expensive.
Rang another dealer just to price a new valve £282+ vat   Shit !  Any advice or better still reasonably priced spare valves would be most welcome

Hi All
I have just bought a Shoei Quest lid a few weeks ago,I had a Raid2 which fit me realy well but was noisy.After reading so many reviews saying the quest was 60% quieter I got one,it definatly feels more aerodynamic,but 60 % quieter its not! :\
