For Sale & Wanted / Re: Fazer 2 (600) for sale (blue also!)

Be safe, be seen! It's deadly commuting on the A2 in the dark of winter, I nearly pulled out of a lane filtering into another bike coming up behind me, all I could see in the mirrors was white head lights. Thought, people will see bloody yellow headlights coming though! (it works! but you can take them off, they're only velcroed on)


That's ok JZS, poor taste I'd ok if you like it mate  :eek .
If I had the space for it I would buy it at that price £500, would be a winter project of thorough cleaning and engine re-paint, plus braided lines and the like. Oh! And not forgetting the full Silver re-spray

Thanks Tommy ... will have to consult Mr Haynes’ manual more closely 😉 👍🏻


Your welcome Mjhb, if I can help as I walk life's beaten path. Lol!
Some members in here used to take the piss but thankfully that's been banned. :rollin :rolleyes


There are still a couple of foccers in here to watch out for, but firstly it would be bad etiquette to name them and secondly fazersharp and hedgetrimmer would be cross with me if I named them.

What you do need to do is to take those foccing horrendous yellow wasp like bits of shite off the headlamps that would really improve things, Oh! and the other thing re-spray it Silver  :lol


500 quid is a great buy for someone who wants a winter project.
My guess is it will go quickly.
Good luck with the sale  :thumbup

Seriously.
What get my goat is why Samsung built the Galaxy 6 Edge in a such away that you cannot remove or replace the battery.
Mine is 14 months old and the battery only holds its charge for about 8 hours, it seems every time I go to make a foccing call there is 3% left and it immediately shuts down.
Nearly £600 for 14 months use, £42+ a month without call costs or data.  :thumbdown


Contract next time

Seriously who the foc is going to do this: 

I just read right through this post from it conception. What a miserable, whinging lot of foccers there are on this forum. It seems foc all is right for you,
FFS cheer up and try and see the positive in some things it's not all doom and gloom. Should start a post called 'What makes me smile'



The bait was cast.... now the wait in eager anticipation.


The rest of the post i feel is accurate, yes, off topic as someone commented, but nevertheless a necessary rant. its called padding out.


Have a great day. :finger

I just read right through this post from it conception. What a miserarable, whinging lot of foccers there are on this forum. It seems foc al is right for you, FFS cheer up and try and see the positive in some things it's not all doom and gloom. Should start a post called 'What makes me smile' the people of Zimbabwe are smiling now foccing great big smiles, I really wish Africa well, the people there for the best part (not all I know) are generous and kind people. My Daughter worked in South Africa for 6 months working with aids victims, and I use the word victims with full understanding of what a victim is. It is a person through no fault of their own find them self in an untenable position or situation. The full total of the aids baby's are innocent of any wrong doing, the majority of the woman are infected because of their husbands sewing wild oats while working away from home and infecting their wife on return.
Oh! hang on tommyardin is going off on one AGAIN.


What makes me smile: Laying the Fazer over in the twisties, looking at the Fazer after it has been cleaned and polished, wakeing the Fazer up after 5 months of hibernation. Receiving a letter telling me my £200 heating allowance has been deposited into my bank. My mechanic telling me the car or bike has gone through the MOT with no advisories. When the Mrs says Oh! All right if you must  :rolleyes :eek  to name but a few.

As Celtic showed they are the DOGS BOLLOCKS.
Either that or solder and heat shrink, but the connectors that Celtic recommended are better because ease of undoing should the need ever arise (Probably Not) but it is a possibility

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Replacing Rear brake disc
« on: 21 November 2017, 08:11:04 AM »
i only mentioned wd40 (the devils semen) because unfortunately that seems to be the only lubrication some people tend to know about
wd40 your ignition barrel   - NO NO NO (use carb cleaner then a graphite spray - never an oil) (try carb/brake cleaner first as a test next time)
wd40 your tight bolts - NO use a proper penetration spray
wd40 your wifes arse - NO NO NO be nice and use Another type of penetration lube


wd40 is great for some jobs dfont get me wrong and i always have some but it is rarely the correct thing to use
we have a can in our rally cars tool box but rarely use it back at the garage is its primary roll is water displacement
can it penetrate YES - is it the best HELL NO
Yes yes yes for that job I find that little red straw is just perfect.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Replacing Rear brake disc
« on: 20 November 2017, 10:44:16 PM »
 The original bolts that hold the disc on are too long, they poke about 10 mm or so into the centre of the alloy hub, there the buggers sit gathering rust, shit and and all sorts or other electrolysis type corrosion (Steel Bolts in cast alloy not good) the ends of these bolts become engorged with this corrosion and as you force them out of the alloy hub they will bring a lot of the threads with the or even worse shear off.
I used a Dremel with a flexi drive about a foot long and with a small wire brush I managed to clean a lot of the crap off the threads, you can not reach it all but if you get 70% off it will stand you in good stead. lots and lots of Plus Gas release agent for a couple of day before you start (WD40 will not do it, it lubes a thread once its turning but will not help release it) give each of the dome headed bolts a good sharp crack with a hammer and drift (Remember the hub is Alloy) and if necessary a blow lamp on each bolt before you try undoing it.
As someone said earlier try rocking the bolt back and forward once its moving and gradually ease them out.
The stupid bolts that are holding the disc are made of cheddar cheese so make sure your allen key is in good nick or even a new one. cos once it slips your down to a hammer a small chisel to drift the bolt round.
I replace all my disc bolts with shallow headed stainless steel hex head bolts that were about 10mm shorter, I copper slipped the new bolts before they went in, don't use loctite no one has ever had one of those bolts come undone, in fact one one can usually undo the foccing things when they really try.
The bolts need to be shallow headed to allow them to pass through the outer edge of the caliper.

« on: 20 November 2017, 10:52:31 AM »
Just me being nosy, but what you have done to the bike look like real improvements, so, I'm wondering why you are undoing all that you have done.
I could understand it if you wanted to keep it as a future investment, standard is more saleable and of course authentic.


I suppose the other thing is it could be a way of selling the bike as standard and still raising some dosh selling off the custom parts as well.
you don't have to answer as I am just thinking out loud. :rolleyes

Not convinced myself that it's just water damage as plugs are melted,why is there a 25 amp fuse where a 10 amp should be.  Shocked



Hi bandit,
I guess it could just be that the connection was corroded slightly either by a water ingress or corroded because of a loose connection arcing and sparking. A loose joint like that causes burning and blackening of a contact, that in turn causes more arcing and the fuse to blow and the previous owner got over the blowing fuse by shoving a heavy fuse in line, that in itself would seem to cure the problem until the joint became so unstable that it melted the connector.
My guess would be it had nothing to do with a water ingress but a loose arcing connection. IMO  :rolleyes
