FZS600 Fazer / Re: Replacing Rear brake disc
« Last post by Disorderlypunk on Today at 01:05:24 PM »

if the wheel isnt off yet hit the bolts with some plus gas every day for a few days while your waiting for the new disc

if you aint got a welder but have a blowtorch get some heat on those bolts then hit them with some plus gas /wd40 / thin oil and let them cool
and give them a good whack with a hammer to shock them (every little helps)

there is also the candle wax trick but hardly anyone has candles anymore
then its time to get out the shortest socket you have and a breaker bar - those fuckers are tighter than a ducks arse but not as waterproof

Hi all
First I need a new rear brake discs on the advice of my mot Any recommendations,up to £80 is my limit How easy is it to do yourself
Cheers
I've had 2nd hand ones and a new OEM in the past… the real difficulty is removal of the old one.
The screws corrode and the threadlock cures until it's up to full superglue strength. They are almost impossible to extract without them shearing. I've found that welding a bar to the head dumps enough heat in and gives the leverage needed to undo them, but the screws are obviously not reusable after that. So budget for some replacement screws and maybe some mechanics time if you don't have the equipment yourself.

Just me being nosy, but what you have done to the bike look like real improvements, so, I'm wondering why you are undoing all that you have done.
I could understand it if you wanted to keep it as a future investment, standard is more saleable and of course authentic.


I suppose the other thing is it could be a way of selling the bike as standard and still raising some dosh selling off the custom parts as well.
you don't have to answer as I am just thinking out loud. :rolleyes

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Airbox removal
« Last post by ptolemyx on Today at 10:46:02 AM »
What am I missing? How do you get the airbox out of the way on a gen1 to work on the carbs??????? I've got tank (including rear bracket) off, side covers off, airbox sides off, airbox lid off, battery out, as many screws and bolts and hoses as I can find undone. I've the airbox loose off the carbs but can't see how to remove it completely from the bike. Do you have to separate the front and rear parts of the airbox, if so how do you get at the screws? Shop manual says drain the coolant; why???
