It may not be a simultaneous failure. It may be that #2 was OK and #3 was poorly but you didnt notice it so much until #2 went too.

Unusual for a good offer first time round. Is it inline with teh going rate for a repalcement though based on the adverts on-line?

If they are going to repair it, let them worry about where the parts come from. As long as it is as good a condition when you get it back as it was before the accident then its not a worry. after all, the parts that got damaged were not new were they?

As for write off values, as I have said before, have a look at existing adverts for similar age/condition/milage bikes and that is the price you want regardless of how low they value it.

I have only used it once (well twice if you count the return trip) since it changed but the website suggests you can pay in advance on-line.

Assuming teh gaps reduce with age, I would do them all.
On both the inlet and exhaust you have one that is on the limit and the rest, bar one, are only just off the limit.

If it was me, I would go with +0.05 on everything but I have no idea how these shim things work.

Everyone is assuming its her car. Maybe its her mums or even a company car.

Either way, it makes no difference to you Spokes, let the insurance deal with it and be prepared for a low ball offer to start with.
Dig out copies of adverts from Biketrader or similar showing bikes in similar condition and mileage etc to show how much it will cost you to replace with a near identical bike. Thats the figure you aim for.

I do wish someone would buy it though so I can ride my Fazer

Nice looking bike but nowhere on the ad does it say how old it is.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Oil Leak
« on: 23 June 2017, 08:42:04 PM »
Its difficult to tell from the pictures but is there oil on the inlet rubbers? I cant see any in the pictures but cant be certain. If theres none on the rubbers, and the bottom half of the cylinder block looks dry too, the oil has to be coming from behind the carbs or above.
Oil will only flow downwards unless there is a good breeze. The oil on the hoses will have come from the carb above it.

I actually think teh MT-0 range are good Fazer successors. Maybe we should set up a sub-forum for them. :pokefun

The inlet rubbers look to be oil free so I would suggest it isnt coming from the top end of teh engine. Theres no oil near the carbs apart from, as Fazerider says, the crankcase breather.
Check inside the airbox to see if thats full of oil.

Looking at the pictures under the engine, teh oil is coming from the back ratehr than the front which ties in with teh oil under the carbs.

I have an old 900i Tiger that upsets R1 riders. its not what you ride, its how you ride.

Take it easy and keep safe.

Even if you get a race tuned R1, don't try to keep up. ride your own ride.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: output shaft viable repair ???
« on: 21 June 2017, 11:44:34 AM »
You can get big enough nuts from loads of places and a decent engineer with a lathe, turning down the shaft, could easily recess the nut too.

No reason it wouldnt work. To achieve it though you would need to remove the shaft from the gearbox so may as well get a new one in there.
An alternative would be to just cut a new thread the next size down and save the agro of putting the sleve on there.

I dodnt see a clear brake light but there was a flash of red when teh bike got rear ended.
Biker was a muppet pulling in front so close. Also a muppet for undertaking at that speed.
Car driver was a muppet for not backing off when the bike did pull in front. Also a complete wanker having knocked the biker off he sits in his car for a bit then checks his car for damage before slowly walking to the biker.

Truckers on the opposite side saw the incident, stopped and got to the biker before the driver started walking.


what happens if you short shift (change gear from 1-2-3-4-5-6 at say 4000rpm?)
