I had this problem, had the wrong plugs in, 9E when they should have been 8E. Ran like a dream for the last 2k so might be worth a look which plugs you have fitted

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Gen 1 1000 fork seals
« on: 29 July 2017, 07:03:12 AM »
If the seal mate did not work, Check for small stone chips on the fork leg, rust around the seals or cracks in the dust caps which would allow dust/grit into the seals.
Forks are  in really good nick, 2005-12k-never lived outside or used in the winter by the state of the bike. Just ordered the genuine stuff from Fowlers, so all I need now is a bit of time, motivation and a load of tea.

Thanks for the info Gents.
Already tried the seal mate plan and it still seeps, might give it another go before I start buying bits and bobs.

Used PJS again, just as good as last time, highly recommended.

Thanks for the appreciation Gents, she really is that nice. This is the only place she's advertised. If I can't sell her I'll probably get her tested etc and make a few more quid. . Testicles are overrated !


<blockquote>1997 Honda FireBlade RRV. One owner (me) from new, 28k miles.
Contrary to good selling practice I'm going to list the bad points first. RHS has some minor fairing marks and indicator hole has 2 x 5 mm cracks. (Pictures if reqd.) PSH up to 16k (4 years then serviced by me), original suspension and chain & sprockets (it has had that easy life), minor corrosion on the exhaust, MOT has expired, few normal marks from use (she is 20 years old). RHS fork seal has slight weep. Sorned.
Now the good points.
Always garaged, never ridden in the winter, never wheelied, all original paperwork from new. In the last 1000 miles she has had new tyres (BT 016, brilliant tyres), battery (yuasa), brake pads, spark plugs, air filter (Honda), oil and filter (Honda), All old MOT certs, Datatag (paperwork) Datatool Veto Evo 3 + original 2 fobs (paperwork), both original keys, renntec sports rack, Remus Grand Prix Oval carbon can (not fitted), tinted screen (original supplied), mini indicators (originals supplied), hugger, scottoiler from new. Lives on an Oxford Optimiser, starts on the button and purrs like a Honda should.. She has never been in an accident or down the road, the levers are original and the engine cases unmarked. The engine is as it left the factory. Haynes manual.
I have a load of pictures that I can send should anyone be interested. Most of you will disagree with this but the engine makes a Fazer sound rough (controversial thing to say on a Fazer forum). These are an appreciating asset now but she is hardly ridden and that's what bikes are for. Medical issue forces sale but I'm in no rush, if you are interested the best thing to do is ring me and I will give a %100 honest appraisal of my bike, I have owned her for 20 years so this is a very reluctant sale.
<blockquote>£1500 absolutely 100% fixed price.</blockquote></blockquote>

My mate has a 2011 Gen 1 CBF1000 GT and he loves it, supremely reliable.

4 hours, you can guarantee that if you started belting a thief with a lump of wood it wouldn't take the police 4 hours to respond. Back to front this country now.

Thanks for the replies fellas, think I'll try the lead shot option.

General / Handlebar vibration extra damping
« on: 17 June 2017, 04:19:05 PM »
Anyone put extra weight inside their handlebars to damp out vibration, I've renthal ultra lows with RG end weights but there is still an annoying vibration there, I was thinking of kiln dried sand, lead shot or brass internal bar, approx. 13mm diameter by 150mm long. Any thoughts ?

I found the cheapest place to buy Givi mounts new was Amazon, the shop is in Italy if I remember rightly, they turned up well packaged just took a bit longer to arrive. 'They all come from Italy anyway ' was my reasoning ordering them from abroad and saving a few quid.

I'm after a tinted MRA touring screen, not a Varioscreen , the tall one, or a tinted Yamaha touring screen and a set of original Yamaha crash bungs, must be in excellent nick.

How can anyone contemplate voting for Mr. Corbyn, his IRA links outweigh any brilliance (though I think he is an ideological idiot) he may have. I may be biased after 26 years in the Armed Forces but some things cannot be forgiven. I'd lock him up.
Labour have no chance, they are not trusted or trustworthy and screwed up so many things last time. I'm not a 'Dyed in the wool' Tory voter, never went to University (got some O levels), come from a line of Joiners and Miners and am from County Durham, a labour stronghold, but wouldn't vote labour ever, I wouldn't let them run my bath, let alone a country. Imagine having Diane Abbot in charge of stuff, she's one of their top politicians, scary.
Not going to get into a keyboard warrior discussion about my views so have quoted myself along with a screenshot (of which there are a number) of a little light reading from the press. Please don't misquote me.
