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

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?)


What happens if you redline it in 2nd and then click through to 5th and try accellerating gently instead of using 3rd and 4th?

When you are changing from 2nd to 3rd, does it acccelerate when you turn the throttle gently? what about if you wind it wide open?

Nt used one but I would have thought it made for a harder ride as throttle inputs would be magnified so not as easy to apply small changes

Sorry fella, didnt realise you were the one selling it. Sometime people list stuff they have seen or for others.

Same here, I didn't realise the Op was selling it or I would have kept my face shut.

Dont worry. I'm not bothered.

Over 30mph full kit every time. Tarmac does a very good impression of a grinding wheel or sandpaper when you slide along it.
Under 30mph (mopeds only really) I don't care. You can do, and I used to, practically the same speed on a pushbike which you may not even wear a helmet for let alone gloves or long trousers.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Oil warning light
« on: 15 June 2017, 12:15:43 PM »
the light is more likely to come on when accelerating rapidly due to the oil sloshing to the back of the gearbox and dropping in level at the front.


Some did. Higher mileage ones suffered from alternator failures which Hooonda fixed under warranty even though some of the bikes were not within the warranty period still.

This one is fine though. I just don't use it enough to justify keeping it.

The problem is most likely to be right below the tank.
When you lift the tank it pulls them up slightly from behind the carbs/gearbox. When you lower the tank again, they don't fall back via gravity and the excess gets kinked under the tank.
Simply grab the pipe where its behind the tank and pull down on it gently as you lower the tank. Job done.

The U20's have just gone through to the final of their competition after beating the springboks.

Lions seem to be making more of a squeaking sound at the moment though.

Chain tension should be 30-40mm according to Yamaha. Personally I find the FZS very susceptible to getting the wrong tension. Too tight, it wines, Too loose and it clonks when you change gear.

If the bike is fitted with an alarm using the standard plug in section under the seat, its easy to remove. Just unplug it and plug in the bypass plug that was there from the factory.
Did this on my Tiger and the replacement plug was £3 from Triumph. Knowing Yamaha, it will be about £30 though if you haven't got it still.

You will find water around the filler neck occasionally and its worth blowing that pipe out to make sure its clear but that's not the one likely to be causing you problems.

IF the problem happens again, take off your helmet and take out your earplugs then open the fuel cap. If you hear a little hiss as you do it, its because there is a vacuum inside the tank. This is caused by the breather pipe being kinked. To fix that, lift the front of the tank and locate the breather pipes (back right). Find the bottom of the pipe and gently pull on that as you lower the tank. Problem solved.
At the very least, once you release the vacuum in the tank, the bike will start again and run for another 20 mins before it builds up again.
