Oh no that's a shame, Watto had indeed purchased. Sorry about that Carl

Dang, I've really got to work on my sales patter!

Hi Carl, I'm afraid I can't advise on that, I've no idea how compatible they are with Givi stuff
Do you know if Gen 1 specific Givi pannier racks will fit to these arms.

Purchased brand new but not fitted

Bought from a forum member for an upcoming trip but now not required as I am using a different luggage arrangement.
The arms are freshly powder coated. I purchased the rack with no bolts or the square protector pads. I have included a square piece of neoprene foam from which it should be easy enough to cut some to fit. The four fixing bolts should be fairly easy to find.
I paid £55 through PayPal so am asking the same amount posted.

None to show here, was too busy riding
300 miles, West Midlands to Llangollen to see the aqueduct there, then on through to Dolgellau and back round to Welshpool, Shrewsbury, Kidderminster then home.
Great weather and my first ride on the Fazer Thou; very pleased with her, should have bought one years ago.

Ah, looks like it might do the trick. Don't worry about the arms, I'll probably install it upside down anyway knowing me

Anyone got a rack or grab rail they want to shift? Just looking for something that I can tie a lomo bag or similar to for an upcoming trip.

That is sad to hear.
Can't understand why you would go out of your way to make obnoxious comments on a thread about the death of a fellow biker? Quite simply pathetic

In good condition, slight abrasion as shown in the third photo

Thanks for the extra info, much appreciated. I will give that a try when I next get the chance, I was planning to have another go yesterday but having not ridden the bike since purchase in November, I couldn't resist a blast out in the sunshine

Glad you got out for a good ride on the Fazer, I also got out on mine for the first proper ride since purchase in November! Fantastic machine, should have bought one years ago. I'll not be selling this one for certain
Plenty of sunshine in the West Midlands

Thanks both, I'll take a look at the info there and have another go.

Bought my Fazer in November last year and it was displaying the 7k code on the tachometer.
Went out today to have a look, loosened the cables (top was very slack already) valve turned freely as expected; the seller advertised the bike as having had a new valve, end plate and bushes.
After a few attempts at adjusting the cables I am now free of the 7k code. However, having looked at a few videos of working valves, the initial position of mine at idle seems to be off somewhat and despite several attempts adjusting I could not get the forks of the pulley to line up with the hole. I'm also unsure whether it is opening fully, I thought it seemed a bit hesitant. Does it open all the way to the 2 O'clock position at red line in revs?
Here is the video, I took the revs up to about 9k at the end. I was hoping an expert could cast their eye over this and perhaps give me some pointers
Thanks in advance

I'm looking to buy a Fabbri double bubble, does anyone have one to sell?

Thanks, sorry for the major hijack

Thanks for the welcome, not sure if this is going to work but will give it a go..

A good choice of bike that, I bought mine in November.
I live just down the road in Coventry so keep your eye out for an 04 black and silver Fazer with gold forks

Happy new year all! Hope 2017 is good for you all. Eyes on reset
« on: 28 December 2016, 01:30:27 AM »
82k on the Fazer! That's a good load of miles, was there a regular commute that contributed?
« on: 27 December 2016, 08:52:57 PM »
Wow lucky escape! Glad she was ok, must have been a bit of a shock that
