Took the 600 for its MOT - passed, no advisories, absolutely spot-on.

Dudeofrude - what brand of discs did you go for ?

Can't remember off the top of my head but they aren't ebc or anything I'd heard of. They were on offer at my local yammy dealer, £200 for the full set. I known its probably sales spiel but the guy reckoned they are popular for the track bikes that they sends up to cadwell as a sponsor so should hopefully be alright. Anythings better than the states that were on there 😣😣

As for what I did today..... went to Willingham woods bike night, absolutely rammed. Saw some stunning bike too

Personally my biggest concern with lithium batteries is their tendency to explode when pierced, not a great thing to have in something as delicate as a motorbike in my opinion. It's the same problem all these fancy new electric cars are going to have, catch them wrong in an accident and it's gonna look like a Hollywood car crash.
I know the chances any kind hitting them under your seat it quite minimal but it's still a risk

I've been doing the same ( shooting the squirrels) only mine are a reddish colour not grey. Think it might be the red clay rubbing off on their fur when they're down their burrows.
Think they're all young un's too as they seem smaller than usual.

Anyway, so far I've bagged over a hundred and haven't seen any about for a good few months now.

Seems like a good method of getting rid of vermin..... I might try the same thing outside my local dole office 🤔

Finally fitted the new discs front and back, titanium bolts all round, new rear brake line, new pads all round, all calipers cleaned and serviced.... good to go for the summer 😎👌

Yeah, the floor tiles are from Costco, like you say they make garage seem a lot warmer and no more cold feet. Had mine down for over 10 years now and they need replacing. General wear and tear plus wifes pet rabbits like to chew them for some strange reason.

I had mine carpeted for the same reasons haha soaks up any spills or leaks quite nicely too. Just get an earful off the missus when I take the Dyson out to clean it haha

My current one (pictured) is about 6 inches but my old exhaust (from a16) was only about 3 inches long. So I suppose different manufacturers use different baffles. As long as it has a smaller hole then it'll be quieter

Years ago not long after I passed my test I tapped the back of someone in the car, we both got out looked at the little scuff we both had he said narh that's fine and we both carried on our way. But that was both older cars with proper bumpers - the clue is in the name BUMBER - for bumping. These days you so much as touch it and it shatters into a 1000 peices and you are looking at a £600 PLUS labour replacement.
I prefer it when you see in other countries everyone has dents in their cars and when you clip someone a few swear words are exchanged but no one even stops.

While living in Spain we often used to watch people 'parallel park' by Whig I mean drive forward until you bumped the car in front, then reverse until you hit the car behind then repeat until you were satisfied you had parked 😂
Shocked the hell out of us when we first moved there but after a while you got used to the fact that you car was just gonna be scratched and dented.....like everyone elses

FZ6 / Fazer / Re: Performance gain from K&N air filter?
« on: 06 April 2018, 11:11:34 PM »
In a word No, if it combined with a free flowing exhaust then you may experience a 1-2 bhp increase but that's only due to the increase air flow, which in turn will make the bike run slightly lean so that increase will only be a certainly rpms.
If the bike is currently running slightly rich then the K&N could help improve the power but other than thats its only useful when you start having it tuned that's when you start falling down the aftermarket/modding rabbit hole,
1 day your buying a free flowing air filter and 6 months down the line your trying to decide if you want your new lightweight pistons to be forged or cnc milled aluminium .... its a slippery slope haha

With 50 year NCB your insurance should be foccin free!!
There should be a limit to how much you pay in your lifetime (day 10k) once you reach it you then don't have to pay anything unless you have an accident. Then the cost of the accident is deducted and you'd have to pay again until you reached the limit. Would make a much fairer system and the companies would still make money from the interest so it would be win win 🤔

Went out for a spin up to RAF conningsby with a few mates. Saw some great aerial displays from the Jets.
Then went for a cruise over to Cadwell Park to watch a few track day sessions.
Great weather and a great ride

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Rear tyre balancing question
« on: 03 April 2018, 06:45:41 PM »
Yes, he's talking bollox.
Everything that has mass & rotates will vibrate & needs balancing, you may be unable to detect it, but it will defo vibrate if not balanced.
Personally I leave all components fitted (discs & sprocket carrier etc) achieves a better dynamic balance of all rotating parts, most tyre fitting places don't balance with sprocket carrier fitted tho.
All depends on what equipment you're using to balance a wheel.
ie) Electronic Dynamic balancer
ie) Home DIY frame type balancer
I fit & balance my own tyres & use lead bike specific weights, I have access to both types of blancers but prefer the frame type for bike wheels.
I'd never allow a tyre fitter to balance my wheels, they don't seem to give a shit about how they remove old balance weights or consider where they slap on on fugly balance weights... But then I'm OCD as F***K.


Yeah I was gutted about this myself. I have lovely gold powdercoated wheels and they go and stick two fugly lumps of grey metal on them, could have at least asked me first.
I know its superficial but you'd think they'd do coloured ones by now haha

A lot of people put a lot of effort into getting here from other countries so we can't be all that bad can we?.

Oh and I wonder why that is 🤔 I wonder what single thing makes this country a better place to come and live over Greece, France, Germany, Belgium etc etc....... certainly ain't the weather is it

I totally agree. I have a friend who is a fireman and has been in the brigade for nearly 20 years. He was telling me that the recent push to have more women join has forced the training to be altered more to suit the female form. The times have been lengthened, the dummies(bodies?) Have been lightened to almost child weight and the amount of equipment they are supposed to carry has been lessened.
He also said basically if you try for a job you have to be either female or a minority to even stand a chance..... not because of racism or sexism but purely just to tick boxes so they can say they have a diverse' staff.
It sickens me all this 'equality' bollocks. Everyone isn't equal, that's just a fact of life.

This is why dynojet power commanders are so popular 😉
Sorry to hear about the trouble your having though. Nothing worse than paying good money for something that doesn't work 😤

A lot of the forums suggest it's a common problem with the bike. Seems a fair few people manage to get them stuck.

Don't know if you've looked through them bit this seems to be a solution

So, I finally managed to get it open last weekend and thankfully this trick has worked so far.
My new technique- turn key, lift seat off the lock and then with open palms or bottom of fists firmly hit the two ends of the rider's portion of the seat. The motion should be from front to the back of the bike. This pops the seat open immediately which springs out of whatever is holding it down. Its definitely the oddest way I have had to employ to open a motorcycle seat!

Might help 🤔

I have a pc3 on there at the minute with a fully custom map, gutted cat, modified airbox with high flow filter and slip on can. The flies and stacks seem like the next logical step

I see one of your modified bikes for sale on eBay. Stretched out swingarm etc, looked like a hell of a machine

Was there a noticable difference in the midrange? Or in the power delivery at all?

Does anyone here have a gen 2 with removed or modded secondary flies?
I'm just Interested to know if it made a noticable difference?
Same with velocity stacks.

Suns coming out and I'm getting back in the mood for some more mods haha
