Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Scotland Ivanising - Edinburgh/Broxburn
« on: 09 July 2017, 08:38:55 PM »
Well been a good day, my thou has joined the ivanised ranks.

Massive thanks to Mike, sorted the kit first thing then took the time to do some suspension tweeks, can't wait to get out on the bike and do some miles with the new setup.

Also massive thanks to Joe, the host with the most. Nice to meet Jim and Dave too, we all spend most of the day together talking.

FZS600 Fazer / Sprung a Leak

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / FZS1000 Head Bearings
« on: 06 April 2017, 05:12:44 PM »
So while doing the forks i have noticed the head bearings are notchy, quite bad, so need new. Now when i look at the Yamaha parts its about £100.

I have seen the Marksman kit [size=78%][/size], from what i read the tapered bearings are better was will last longer, if i buy the marksman kit will i need anything else for the job? Better to replace any wee cheap parts while in there is they are perishable.

Seen this topic [/size][size=78%],7518.0.html[/size] and it has me a bit worried on that the parts will all fit fine? There is a rubber washer mentioned, any idea on part number?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Fork Service
« on: 07 March 2017, 10:18:47 PM »
My dust seals have become pretty corroded and split on the forks so i am looking to do a fork service, I want to be sure to get all the parts to do a complete service. As the bike is fairly new to me and i cannot tell when fork oil and seals were changed i am going to do them for peace of mind. Do i need every thing in green in the picture?

I am also going to look at Hyperpro springs. I have seen the threads saying progressive is better all round and then others saying linear is better as its suited to weight but i think the Hyperpro kit will be best for me as i am not exactly Valentino Rossi. I will also have luggage and pillion an times so feel progressive will be best.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Renthal Bars and Throttle Cable routing
« on: 06 March 2017, 05:22:04 PM »

Fitted my Renthal 758's yesterday and had seen a mention of chopping 10mm on the ends but was waiting to see how it all felt first. I have the bars on and when fitting the throttle side it felt like there was a good bit of resistance, is this normal for other that have changed?

The cables sit really close to the servo too for the exup, i am thinking its been routed wrong.

The bike has heated grips but they are quite large compared to Oxford, how do i go about removing the throttle grip if i cannot quite get on with it?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Coolant change
« on: 04 March 2017, 08:46:14 PM »
Hi Guys,

I ordered a new coolant drain screw for my FZS1000 90163-06002 this seemed to supersede 90153-06029, it just does not look right though, looks far to big. But thats what fowlers says.


The radiator drain cap looks a bit perished at the rubber, do you think this will be ok? 

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Exup Cable help
« on: 16 February 2017, 04:34:34 PM »

I had the exup of the bike to clean and get unseized. Decided to get new Slinky cables too, as thats what looked to be on the bike already.

I thought i'd taken a picture to show what one was correct for upper and lower at both Servo and at valve, it would appear not or its missing.

Anyone know? Are the different lengths?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Coolant Drain Bolt
« on: 18 January 2017, 03:43:14 PM »

Is the coolant drain bolt numbers 27 & 28 in this parts list?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Exup plate
« on: 08 January 2017, 01:06:24 PM »

I have had the Exup valve dismantled for servicing, turned out to be a pig of a job as bolts were seized. I have managed to get them out with help of a friend. I am now looking at building back up, but the plate seems like a really tight fit, like i would need to tap back on?

How loose should the valve plate be?

For Sale & Wanted / Petrol Tank for FZS600 (Gold) WANTED

Has any one got a gold petrol tank for a FZS600 1999? Its the solid gold bike not the two tone version.

FZS600 Fazer / Clock Lighting
« on: 01 November 2016, 10:38:33 AM »
I have a problem with my 1999 FZS600 clocks. The right hand side (Right of Rev Gauge and Petrol Gauge) goes off when the bike goes over 4k, this then comes back on about 6k. If i drop below 4k again it comes back on and when changing gears it goes of and back on.

Not sure if this is related to revs or if its just the vibration of the bike at these ranges, any ideas? I have tried wiggling various wires and no help. Weird that its only the right side and not the whole unit.

Do i need to remove fairing to get to clocks?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Gen 1 Wheels
« on: 15 July 2016, 10:09:17 AM »

Does anyone know if the gen 1 wheels are used on any other Yamaha models?

The part number i get for all years is 5LV-25338-00-33, when i done a quick google search this threw up the XJR1300 from 2007 onwards (although 2009 seems to be different).

As i might need a new wheel i am looking to broaden the search if i can.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / (Gen 1) Rear Wheel Bearings poss new wheel
« on: 14 July 2016, 03:32:32 PM »
Hi guys,

So had my gen 1 since last October last year, generally very happy with it but been doing bits and bobs and also finding wee things i'd like to change taking in feedback from the site.

The rear tyre is getting low and squared so thought i better get this done as handling feels pretty shit even with the R6 shock, defo better than standard but still like its sliding about. When i was in today gettin the tyre changed the mechanic said i was to come have a look, the needle bearing at the rear just floats in the wheel, you can move it with two fingers. He said this was not normal and that it should be a comfort fit, this is when i was told it was a new wheel job, would this be correct? There is a breakers nearby but they are looking for £160 or best offer for a wheel. Any ideas on worth?

I have used the link that's in the forum to Marksmen industries and i have ordered a new rear bearing kit and also the sprocket carrier kit so that should save me a good bit money from OEM parts. (Not sure if mechanic will agree to quality of parts over OEM but if endorsed by Mike {Falcon} and the other forum guys then i'm happy)

If the wheel needs changed may also stick a wanted add up in the sale part.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / EXUP Maintenance
« on: 16 April 2016, 05:37:15 PM »
Hi, I got my FZS1000 last year and have not really done a lot of miles so far. I have been dreading the exup maintenance as I am not that great with a scanner but have been trying more and more lately.
Today I got the cover of to show me the cables and pulley. I tried to remove the Allen bolts to all me to look at the valve but they are stuck solid. I have sprayed some WD40 on them and will continue too, is there anything else I can do? I only have an Allen key rather than a Allen socket. I am scared to shear a bolt. Can I heat these?

I have been reading the guide from Pats site and this is helpful.

P.s one of the 8mm bolts is missing, where can I source a replacement.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Rethal Bars
« on: 12 April 2016, 12:13:25 PM »
I bought the bike with renthal bars, is there anyway to determine the style?

I am having problems with hand cramp, not sure if the renthal bars or the heated grips?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Fork Service
« on: 12 April 2016, 12:11:46 PM »

One of the dust seals is away on my FZS1000, is this an MOT Fail\Advise?

There is no oil weep on the fork but the bike is due an MOT on 21st April, was thinking of gettinga wee fork service done, as no idea when it was last done. Is this a job for a novice? If not i could probably remove the forks and take them to a garage, that would be cheaper you'd think?

I know you replace dust\oil seal, anything else? Wanted to price the parts up to give me a rough idea of cost.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Newish FZS1000 owner
« on: 31 March 2016, 05:00:25 PM »

I bought an FZS1000 and the end of last year, its pretty much sat over winter (did not want to get it covered in Salt) I also have an FZS600 that I have had for the last 4 years.

I am looking for opinions on what to do to the thou, looks like there is some great mods out there, if you could list your top mods then what would they be?

I have spoken to Mike about Ivanising, i will do this as soon as I can. I also have a Devilsym R6 shock ready to be fitted, getting a shocktube deliverd then fitting.

The bike feels like it has a slight pulsing feeling, the carb rubbers look cracked but probably not right through, is there anything other than easy start to test this? The last owner said a carb balance would possibly be good, i will probably have this done soon. I had asked about the oil in the air filter box and that seems ok, it was not swimming or that. i had thought a about a K&N or Pipercross filter but folk have said that without rejetting this might not be great, so glad i asked.

I also feel the fuel gauge is inaccurate, or not so much that but seems to reduce in a weird way (quick in places on gauge and slow in others) does the multigauge help.

Any suggestions welcome.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Oil in the Air Box
« on: 29 March 2016, 09:26:45 AM »
I was out the other day checking to see if my FZS1000 had a performance air filter fitted, was thinking of fitting one. When I had the filter out i noticed there was what looked like engine oil in the air box, I assume this is not normal, anything I should be looking out for?

Does anyone have a preference on filters? K&N or Pipercross?

FZS600 Fazer / Swingarm Bearings
« on: 23 November 2014, 08:38:45 PM »
I was cleaning the bike today and I was leaning on the rear to get excess water out the belly pan, I noticed there seemed to be some play in the rear. I then leant over the bike and pulled the rear wheel towards the mudguard and there was a we notch of movement. I am assuming it would be from swingarm, certainly feels like that.

I see there is a how to article on changing the bearings, any idea on how long that would take? Also how difficult is it? I am a mechanical novice but my partners brother has said he'd help, he is a car mechanic so should be a good help.

Any known problems i could run in to would help.
