FZS600 Fazer / Re: Replacement cooling pipes
« on: Today at 04:26:41 PM »
Before you put new coolant back in after getting things sorted i would seriously advise using some RadFlush to give the internals a good clean up.

We don't have that over here  :rollin
I'll try to find some alternative.

i have read an aluminium safe descaler has been used to good effect, dishwasher and washing machine descaler is the same stuff
but i really mean it has to be ALUMINIUM SAFE - if you know anyone that works in the kitchen / food prep industry they might be able to get there hands on it

shame the pipes have gone that way

i want to be out riding  in this sun aswell but im rebuilding my entire rear end and just got sent the wrong bolts and still waiting for a new brake disc (that was my fault as i bent it by dropping an engine hoist on it  :wall [size=78%])[/size]

i hope you kept them because if you have no luck finding some it might mean having some fabricated
problem will be finding someone willing to, custom car builders could (is they do custom rads) as could any firms that repair hydraulic machines as pipework is often damaged

it could be a weak mixture so the corrosion inhibiters are not strong enough yes
a catalyst to corrosion could also be caused by limescale which is caused by hard water in hot systems

-- from a central heating company --
The building blocks of limescale are calcium and magnesium.  Thus, one would think that limescale should have a white color.  Yet, limescale deposits are usually brown!  When limescale deposits build up, iron and oxidized iron particles get caught and are imbedded in the limescale.  Rust firmly attaches itself to your pipes, causing serious threats such as corrosion.

and if you dont know if you live in a hard water area

if you go track racing (road racing) you have to use water only - no coolant is allowed following acu regulations
water is one of the best coolants there is but unfortunatly for us it freezes and in some areas is full of crap
hard water areas should not fill coolant straight from tap thats one of the things that causes issues

seen your other post but posting here instead for future references
the iten numbers above are slightly wrong  (too long)
fowlers list these as back order and are bloody expensive (if backorder is available)

5dm1258800   no2
5dm1248100   no9

5dm1248200 no 15

dont throw the old ones away just yet because if you cant find any then there is still the option to have some fabricated
i would probably go to a hydrolics engineering firm for this but i say that as there is one in my village so they are close

« on: 20 April 2018, 02:01:32 PM »

anything 50/50 as long as its not bought at a pound shop (prob be fine but why risk it)
definatly not evans waterless coolant (overpriced marketing scam that it is)

certainly sounds like a balancing or idle fuel screw area to be looking at
as davie says start with balancing as idle fuel screws dont tend to change as much

i may have gone over the top cleaning this brake caliper
those joining bolts are a bugger to get out and covered in corrosion
split and sand blaster them clean will be painting black i think

just had a thought as we here about flashing and we think instantly of indicator speed - you havent by any chance got one or more of those silly fuses with the led to tell you its broken in do you
i did once upon a time and this happened

im a big fan of the osrams i throw them in everything
dont be fooled by the cheap chinese bulbs with higher wattage they are just useless and can burn out wiring

waited for postman, drank beer, then tried to fit rear wheel bearings only to run out of blowtorch gas so couldn't sweat them all in so started on my brakes to realise there is 18 yrs of crap fouling everything up and forcing one pad into the disc all the time so decided to throw in the towel and drink more beer
(banana bread beer is as weird as it sounds but somewhat nice)
tomorrow it will be calipers in the oven so i can hopefully remove the joining bolts then give them a bloody good clean out and wait for the new piston seals
by mot time that will have the newest back end in the country lol

on a plus side i did get the sprocket carrier bearing in so its at least one step in the right direction

it sounds like a resistance issue between positive feed and the relay so my assumption would be on the neutral switch - i wouldnt worry about it for now as you said the bike was to have an 'airing' so i am to guess its not ran in a while - get her out on the road and have some fun and let us know if it is still playing up, after the gears have moved around a few times it might suddenly stop happening

« on: 18 April 2018, 07:16:07 PM »
not seen this happen before but to start i would clean the contacts going into the relay - will do a bit of digging later on when i can and see what i can find
(im assuming it is in neutral when it is flashing and not flashing when in gear)

really easy to stop that happening

avoid potholes :lol :lol :lol

FZS600 Fazer / Re: rear sprocket nut torque
« on: 18 April 2018, 06:12:02 PM »
i couldnt find it for the life of me lol
be a bit off now as i have just found why my rear pads are wearing unevenly and have to pull my callipers apart and blast them clear of crap to hold the retaining clip in correctly instead of the dodgy angle it has been sitting at
and of course the bolts are stuck solid so up early in morning to throw the calipers in the oven while no one is in the house (windows wide open)

FZS600 Fazer / rear sprocket nut torque
« on: 18 April 2018, 04:52:18 PM »
i might be having an off day - well 3strong beers in as the postman didnt show then did at 4:30 (rather later even for here)
just put sprocket carrier bearing in and for the life off me cant find the torque value for the rear sprocket nuts
i know they are lock nuts so should be good whatever i do but usually there is a value - any ideas

ran out of gas so cant sweat the wheel bearings in now so its for tommorow afternoon now

and that is just porn im assuming adjustable aswell
think i might just save that pic to my folder of goodies

its high pressure water with grit in
its a softer approach than typical sandblasting and often better as it gives a smoother more uniform finish

so many people have carbs done this way but i am not a fan as the grit is not soluble and gets everywhere
stripped engines with big holes are fine and can be flushed but carbs should be soda blasted
(just for future refference that last bit - and im looking into starting a soda blasting/ultrasonic service when i get to preston lol)

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Downpipes
« on: 18 April 2018, 12:03:10 AM »
wish that had been an option for me but unfortunatly the studs were rusted so much there was nothing to put a new nut onto either so needed to put new studs on

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Downpipes
« on: 17 April 2018, 10:59:39 PM »
i snapped 6 out of the 8 as mine were absolutly rusted to shite
its just a head off job not a complete engine drop so its not too bad - the worst part of it for me was getting the airbox and carb out
also the head only wanted to come out in one direction for some reason

« on: 17 April 2018, 11:34:49 AM »
i just lick my fingers and dab the downpipes, spraying water is the safest option though
i do it quickly and i have asbestos hands (only fairys and millennials use moisturiser lol)

Sa is self amalgamating tape.
Cop is coil on plug

btw i see your new too the site - so always look at what commenters/posters ride - celtic rides a fazer8 which is post 2010 which have a different coil system from us old school boys who like to play with carbs and not computers lol
fzs600 does not come with cops - but some have been experimenting with arguable results
self amalgamating tape is just tape that sticks to itself a.k.a TAPE - i would be pissed at any tape that didnt stick to itself,
