To raise the front put bike on centre stand put weight on the rear of your seat to get the back wheel on the ground & chock or use a trolley jack with a piece of wood under the downpipes at front to support the weight.

A Haynes manual may come in handy for torque settings & removal of the headstock if bearings are shot, removing the forks isn't a hard job unbolt the brake calipers from lower leg tie up no need to disconnect brake hoses  remove the mudguard warning bolts can (snap).

Before raising front, loosen off the front wheel axle spindle & very slightly loosen the upper & lower clamp bolts on each of the upper fork tubes,now raise front remove wheel spindle,speedo drive,wheel then remove upper & lower bolts & slide out fork legs.

Just be warned when refitting speedo drive make sure the lugs seat correctly in the wheel or they will snap off.

Sorry to hear that hope you came off unscathed,

As for the bike well that depends on who's paying for the repairs, i.e claiming on their insurance or not, if claiming on their insurance then speak to yours as the bike should be checked out by a bike place in my opinion to access the damage & cost of repairs for insurance purposes & whether cost out ways the value of the bike to which it will be a written off.

Having the frame & head stock & so on checked will determine what happens next,then if all is o.k get prices for items i.e forks bearings etc so if bike is written off but repairable a deal can be struck with insurance to buy it back at a silly price. 


FZS600 Fazer / Re: braided brake lines
« on: 31 January 2018, 08:23:09 AM »
ok just been having a search around for some new brake lines (its about time i replaced them on the old girl)
and came across wezmoto , they seem ok and read a lot of reviews all over the place as when it comes to brakes i read everything i can on even the smaller companys (in case they aint had the good chances against HEL and GOODRIDGE)
they seem to do two kits for the fzs600 a OEM standard and a full length race kit (cheaper ?)
the only difference i can see is that OEM=4lines, RACE=3lines
i can only assume this is a duel banjo on the master cylinder and a line to each caliper for the race kit (positives and negatives on this)
i have contacted them to confirm if this is the case and dont mind if it is with my future plans but if you guys know anything please share your knowledge
i told them i am on here and doing install videos etc to let everyone know the difference so hopefully they should get back to me with everything we all need to know.

You are correct the race kit comes with two front lines direct from master cylinder to each brake caliper & not three as standard setup.

Should be 2x Stop/Tail Bulb 12v 21/5w double filament,make sure pins on bulbs are not offset. 

Both bulbs should come on, with lights & the other filaments when brakes applied.

Was the battery new or used.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Starting/Running Issues
« on: 06 December 2017, 09:06:46 PM »
Check voltage of battery or charge it ,do you do short journeys?, as you have done the plugs & carb rubbers with no problems till now, check that your down pipes are in good condition no holes as I see by your pic you have the original ones fitted as this can cause popping/rough idle,bogging as air is being sucked in affecting fuel mixtures. As you have adjusted your mixtures carbs will need to be re balanced.

Not convinced myself that it's just water damage as plugs are melted,why is there a 25 amp fuse where a 10 amp should be.  Shocked

« on: 29 October 2017, 08:20:30 PM »

Most here replace with the plug above,you will have to compare dimensions of the XD05-F plug with the original ones that they will be long enough to clear the cylinder head.
As for the leads not really sure how easy they are to change as I believe they are fixed to the coils.

« on: 13 September 2017, 09:13:35 PM »
Hi, when you left the bike uncovered was it on the side stand?, if the drain holes on the cylinder head are blocked water can lay in the spark plug holes causing a misfire, dry & clean around the plugs use compressed air through the drain holes & around plugs,don't wont any crap dropping down the holes if you remove them also check plug caps are dry to. You can always switch plugs around to see if problem moves to another cylinder,a failing spark plug would be wet with petrol.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Rear master cylinder seals
« on: 02 September 2017, 03:29:59 PM »
I would just rebuild the old one if the seals look o.k & give it a try as brake fluid ain't expensive,but if you need new & in stock,Smile    or £44.29 genuine Yam part.

Hi, there should be a pipe coming from the air/filter box between the inlets 1&2, this connects to the carburetor net filter shown in your picture.  Smile

I don't think your have much luck at a Yamaha dealer having one in stock but maybe quicker than getting one from my link but at least you will have the part number for dealer tomorrow.
