Fazerider, what issues have you had?

FZS600 Fazer / Black Widow or Delkevic
« on: 27 July 2017, 08:32:25 PM »

My downpipes have split at one of the welds so need a new set. I could do with a replacement to the standard can too.

Delkevic and Black Widow  both do full systems for under £300 but which one would you recommend?

DAB is OK sometimes. In my car it sounds like a record is jumping sometimes as it flicks backwards and forwards between DAB and FM when the signal is marginal.

does this not affect mapping /breathing for bike

Uhm, let me think. Freeer flowing exhaust. Reduced back pressure. No, doubt it will make any difference apart from spoil the standard exhaust. Your better off buying a different can. At least that way you can put it back to standard for the MOT or when you sell it.

Is it definitely losing the spark?

Have you had the tank up recently and kinked the breather pipes? This will cause the bike to cut out after a few miles through fuel starvation and then allow it to restart when the vacuum releases. Quick test is next time it cuts out, open the fuel cap slowly with your ear next to the cap. If you get a hiss, you have a vacuum.

Make sure that the bars are able to wiggle as you turn the key or the lock-pin could be sticking in the yoke. Many people confuse the key lock being the issue with the lock-pin.

sounds like the clutch is dragging too much. adjust the clutch and make sure the chain is properly adjusted too.

The other thing to watch Lew is with the French companies, they wont let you cancel. I have seen reports of people still paying after they have written cars off or scrapped it because they didn't get the correct piece of paper stamped. You can only cancel in writing within x days of renewal and only then, if the agree and you have proof of a new insurer.

this apparently is the case with all insurances in France. Thieving barstewards.

15w is good for the 600, but people were saying it's too heavy for the 1000.
Standard is 7.5.

And I thought the thou riders were all a bunch of pie eaters :pokefun

Don't bother with the payzone bollocks though, just go on-line and do it.

fuckem they should have manned booths they used to, I have a french registered car, I have on occasion forgotten to pay, I usually do but I have never had any notification for none payment. They make a bloody fortune out of that crossing so why not keep some toll booths and give somebody a job?

Because all the halfwits in foreign registered vehicles ( :pokefun ) will clog up the motorway again. this is why they did away with the booths to get traffic flowing.

If the oil is old, like engine oil it breaks down. Even refilling with the same oil will make a difference. Most people put 15w in though.

I have had that before. Admin cockup.
they normally get the proof direct from the previous insurer as they all share the data. Just call them, remind them they have failed to ask for it and ask where they want it emailed to.

The holding page on their website seems to have gone. Are they back in business again?

For Sale & Wanted / Wanted - FZS600 collector box replacement pipe
« on: 06 July 2017, 09:53:31 PM »

I have aftermarket down pipes and a standard end can on my FZS600 and there is an additional link pipe between the two which has a hole in it.

Anyone got one spare they want to sell?

FZ6 / Fazer / Re: Front Pads Binding
« on: 06 July 2017, 05:13:30 PM »
Looking at the shape of the grooves, the problem woul dbe the pads not getting to the disk rather than retracting.
Pads don't actually retract though, you just remove the pressure pushing them against the disk so I doubt its that.

Do all the pistons pump out smoothly and push back smoothly? By that I mean with similar amounts of force? If not, the one that's harder to push is where to start looking.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Gen 1 odometer to kms?
« on: 06 July 2017, 04:14:01 PM »
The previous owner probably changed the facia dial to get the KMH scale as the primary scale. The digital display will still be in miles and you cannot change that.

if the seal is not in properly, it can bind on the side of the piston.
With the amount of crap on the pistons in the picture, its quite possible the seal is damaged and binding.

I would be tempted to put new pistons and seals in. At the very least clean those ones up as well as you can and put new seals in.
