FZS600 Fazer / Performance issue( missing at 5,000 RPM)
« Last post by Mr Juju on Today at 02:21:10 PM »
Hi All, I have a very irritating misfire or carb issue most evident at about 5,000 RPM in top gear (around 60 mph) . If I try and change down to blast past it it doesn't work. It's like riding a restricted bike!! Please help. So far I have tried replacing the fuel tank breather hoses and changed the plugs but no good. Oh and I seem to be down around 50 miles on a tank of fuel. Please can anyone suggest what my next best move could be? Many thanks! :)

Mine and I have noticed a few other insurances are set to auto renew and they take the money from the card details held, not good.

Yes, you have to be on the ball now and ring them up to cancel the auto renewal. If you forget (like my son) it becomes too much of a ball ache to sort out the mess afterwards. So this year they got him, next year they won't - as long as he doesn't forget again...
Also it is best if you don't leave it to the last minute, so ring up at least a week in advance.

I am looking into the viability of solar.
Just getting my head around the figures needed to run a house is kind of mind blowing.
My mate runs a 2.8 Kva Honda now as it's a lot quieter than the larger one - how he lives with that set-up I'll never know, far too basic for me.
I know a bit about electrics (just enough to know when to stop) and I learn new bits every now and then. I should have learned properly when I was younger as just about everyone brings their dodgy electrics to me to fix.

My daughter passed her test 2 weeks ago , she's 20, got her a little renault clio not worth much, quotes started at £9000 , after much searching got it down to £2400 but had to have the dreaded black box wich is another money maker for insurance companies,  all sorts of things on it like where it's parked , what time you are using it , amount of milage speed bracking.  What worries me is if they made us all have one 😳

Do not re-insure next year with the black box, they will use this years mileage as the guideline for the next year, so if you go over it they'll charge you and basically mug you off.
And if you happen to do 100mph (it happens) you become instantly uninsured as the sat nav clocks you and your insurance becomes invalid.
These black boxes should be resisted they are evil - if we are not careful we will be sleep walking into a world where they are compulsory.
