General / Re: POLL: Whats the average age of Fazer Owners ?
« on: 19 October 2017, 02:27:20 PM »

I have had three fazers, FZ 6 S1, FZ6 S2 ,FZ1 now on an MT09.
Loved all of them but the FZ6 S2 was a mistake , I had down sized from a Z1000SX , to be honest when you have had 1000cc bike you do miss the extra cc's so I got a nice FZ1 which I loved , but sadly the old  knees are shot and the ride position was becoming unbearable. Nearly packed biking in until some one said try the MT07, I did but thought I wonder what the 09 is like, Love it a real fun bike.

Okay next challenge your bike in the car park of a Garden Centre not B&Q or Home Base a proper garden centre, showing the name of the centre.
I will accept a Garden Nursery, but not just any old flower shop.

My nephew has just been notified by a well known outdoors pursuits clothing manufacturer, that they have inadvertently used one of his photographs in an advert in a magazine.
He is I believe in talks with them and lawyers about how they inadvertently removed his Copy right protected stamp? on said photograph, could get interesting.

General / Re: MT-09 or MT-10?
« on: 29 September 2017, 06:30:54 PM »


It would all depend on what you want out of a bike, the MT09 has bags of grunt and on really twisty roads it will live with anything once the suspension is sorted out. The MT10 is just an out and out  hooligan machine.
I am biased but I would opt for the MT09 if it were me, there again I have had one for 2 years and love it. Just back from a tour SW France to N Wales two days ago , 3850kms in a week, bike never missed a  beat, only down side is the 14ltr tank on the 09, when I come to trade I will go for the MT09 Tracer 18 litre tank.
There were 2 MT 09's and a Tracer mixed in with this lot last weekend and more than a few had a hard time keeping up on the twisties.
Why the fuck are my pic's appearing upside down same pic different forum right way up.

If the acetyline cylinder has been lying on it's side it will be knackered. Also I would remove the flame arresters if possible, strip them down and soak in vinegar. All threads and connections should be exammined for damage. There are also non retun valves in the torch tthese should be looked at. As said flex the hoses and if any sign of cracking on the outer rubber / covering replace. Finally if you are satisfied that all is in order, slowly open the O2 bottle and in a well ventilated area purge through the line upto and including the torch. When satisfied with that do either but preferably both shut the O2 valve on  the bottle and torch and observe if there is any pressure drop, all so though it is a good idea to do a soapy water test around all connections. Repeat the same procedure for the acetyline.
UNDER NO circumstances be tempted touse any oil or grease based products on any threaded sections of the gas bottles or gas regulators.

Not a good idea to try shagging your bird in an Isetta bubble car. The battery terminals arc across the springs under the seat.

This was last Sunday. I spotted it well in the tyre soas I was 20 minutes from home and the tyre was holding the pressure I left it until I got home. That is me extracting it. As soon as I pulled it down it went. I put plug & go mushroom in it and inflated  it again all okay held pressure overnight. As I am heading off for a trip back to the UKon the 20th I decided to get a professional repair done. All sorted now. This is a PR4  and only has about 500kms on it.
Only ever had 2 punctures in the 10years since I got back into biking, both been Michelins PR2 & PR4
