General / Fazer 1000 to FZ6
« on: 05 July 2018, 07:57:30 PM »
Hi all, who on here has gone from a gen 1 thou to the FZ6? happy with the switch? reasons for & against. No plans to swap my thou any time soon as i'm still fettling & buying shite for it but every now & then i do like to swap for a 600.


Don't want to cause any friction but is there a specific model FZ6 that is considered the best one to get. Cheers, D.

« on: 26 June 2018, 07:41:53 AM »
Thank's bud, looking at the service history the seals have recently been done so i'm looking to change the oil & springs. Never seen a seal "puller" before, have you used one? easy to use?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Damper rod bolt
« on: 24 June 2018, 01:57:11 PM »
Hi all, planning to change the front springs soon on my gen 1 fazer thou, i know removal of the damper rod bolt is required when changing seals but is it required when changing the springs? Flicking through the Haynes manual it shows removal of spring & change of fork oil without touching the damper rod bolt.

General / Re: A rant about Bikesure 'Classic Insurance' policies
« on: 19 June 2018, 09:20:05 PM »
I had vans for work for 15 years but decided to switch to an estate car for various reasons, after purchasing the new estate i started to do quotes for the insurance & found out that a large number of insurers do not allow you to carry your NCD from a van to a car. Eventually after a lot of pissing around i got insured through RAC which did/do allow for NCD to be carried over.


As we all know, with insurance it's all about bending over & biting the pillow.

The "axle covers" are fork sliders/crash bungs to protect the forks in the event of an off.

I hope you're as young & as good looking as that car bud as there is nothing worse than seeing a wrinkly old scrotum sac of an old fella driving an open top piece of fanny bait like that. ;)

« on: 21 May 2018, 04:00:17 PM »
Iv'e worn varifocal glasses for the last four years & i also wear multifocal contact lenses for work & for me they both work a treat. Can wear either riding bike no problem. There is another alternative, a friend of mine has just had lens replacement surgery, £3000 per eye & he has the vision back he had in his twenty's.

General / Re: Earplugs
« on: 10 May 2018, 07:05:17 PM »
Ear wax??? i'm a martyr to the feckin stuff, a few years back the need for syringing was getting to be every couple of months or so & as you may know syringing isn't good for the ears so now i have to put olive oil in twice a week otherwise it hardens like bell metal & it's a hammer & chisel job. Failing that i could always open me own candle shop. ;)

« on: 26 April 2018, 10:34:13 AM »
It must differ from bike to bike, i have fitted very light bar end mirrors to my thou & it meant that the bar end weights wouldn't re-fit but i have no problem with vibration.

This is a public forum, may i suggest that if you don't want comments you stick to advertising in Autotrader, Jizzbay, Gumsnatch, etc etc.

All pics still there bud.

Very nice bud, if you decide to sell the Bagster tank cover separately, give me a shout.

Introduction / Re: Hi from Prescot
« on: 02 April 2018, 03:00:34 PM »
There's a guy on here (Staryarm) selling a top fairing & infill panels, see wanted/for sale section although he now has them on jizzbay. The fairing is in blue but if in better condition than yours may be worth spraying correct colour rather than spending £260 (i think) on a new one plus decals, also a lot of OEM parts are out of stock & on back order so take weeks to arrive.
