General / Re: Replacing an FZS600
« on: 06 February 2018, 09:25:48 PM »
Rode my mates CBF1000 and it was just like my FZS Foxeye but more grown up, much more like the 600 than my Fazer 1000 (Gen 1) was. I'd have one.

I would not want to ride pillion on that bike look at the spikes sticking up out of the seat in the second picture.

What advert? I can only see a photo of a blue bike on a VERY steep hill.
If you look at the post directly below the one with the picture you will see the advert. I'll try to be a little more precise next time.

<blockquote><blockquote>3 previous owners (I know 2 of them, lads from work). 20k miles, Mot until September, sailed through the last one, refurbished wheels. 2k miles ago it had new tyres, oil, filter, air filter, plugs, battery. Extras are fenda extenda, double bubble screen, tank protector, Givi rack, tribo seat cover, scottoiler , hugger, radiator guard, disc lock, smoked indicator lenses (originals supplied), newish Oxford Oximiser. The TPS works fine, the gearbox sprocket has not been welded on (horror stories about this kicking about). Bike is in 8/10 condition for its age (spent 10 years off road), all paperwork , both keys, bike in my name at my address. Haynes manual. Always garaged.
Bad points
Limited service history, paint coming off the down pipes, the frame on the front engine mount and a bit off the front of the engine, bit of a scratch on the tank near where your knee touches, odd plastic scratch here and there. Bit of clutch rattle but they all seem to have this.

£1300 fixed price, no offers please as it's not overpriced. Bike needs absolutely nothing doing to it. Easiest bike to ride I've owned and they are brilliant. If you like more info drop me a line and I'll answer any questions</blockquote></blockquote>

All received and fitted to my bike, thanks again.
Donation made this morning.
Many thanks mate, a worthy cause

Thanks so much, I'll send a donation through to help for heroes
Thanks mate, I posted it in a padded Jiffy bag type envelope so should be fine but would you drop me a line to let me know you got it please, I worry about these things forome strange reason.

Posted today mate
Not bothered about the costs just make a small donation to either the guide dogs or a Forces charity when it turns up  please

I want it but live nowhere near you :(
Pm me your address mate and I'll pop it in the post when I get the chance.

Yep I wouldn't buy a  :faz with the view that it'll appreciated in value any time soon. At the same time I agree, don't be selling your fazer.
I've been looking for a fazer replacement for a while now without actually buying anything. I've come to thje conclusion that I want another bike but also want to keep the fazer.
This causes some friction with me and the missus. I'll miss her when she eventually goes (the missus that is).
Rode my mates CBF 1000 (Gen 1) the other day, was a lot more like my Foxeye than my Gen. 1 thou. was. If you want a 'bigger newer Foxeye' with more torque and easier power without the monster performance of the thou. these are definitely worth a try. Still regret selling my thou as it was a beauty.

Recent photo

Still free

« on: 26 August 2017, 09:59:49 AM »
I had a Gen 1 thou (a beauty, wish I'd kept it and covered it up) and a Foxeye 6 and when I decided to go down to one bike I've kept the Foxeye, it's the easiest bike to ride I've had (had a few). Only thing I don't like about it is it's a bit revvy so I might put a one[size=78%] tooth bigger front sprocket on, they are amazing little bikes. [/size]

Just sold Gents

Still for sale.

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

Brand new, £65 posted using Royal Mail or £50 collection ,£115 new from Motorcycle Planet, items are in County Durham. These are brand new and have never been fitted. Pm me if interested please

Tinted MRA touring screen with a flip, excellent condition, see pic for size,  better than the Varioscreen IMHO , I've had both. £30 pick up or £36 posted to standard U.K address , less than half the price of a new one. Item in County Durham.

See photos,  black ones to suit the black frame, haven't been crashed, alloy blocks have the odd mark, plastic blocks unscraped. £30 pick up or £37 posted (Royal Mail), or you could buy new ones for £75. County Durham.
