certainly sounds like a balancing or idle fuel screw area to be looking at
as davie says start with balancing as idle fuel screws dont tend to change as much

Sam Couplands didn't last very long after Jim sold it. In case you didnt know Jim is running his own
machining / engineering  business. R A Wilson is back in the premises where originally he started out.

sold me bike today and got a Pan, it's my understanding that the tax ends at point of sale and you tell DVLA who will refund if applicable.

Quote
When you buy a vehicle, the tax or SORN doesn’t come with it. You’ll need to get new vehicle tax before using the vehicle.

You’ll need the reference number on your new keeper supplement (V5C/2).

You can also tax at your local Post Office® or by calling:

Telephone: 0300 123 4321
Cancel vehicle tax and get a refund

Your vehicle tax is cancelled and you automatically get a refund when you tell DVLA that your vehicle has been:

    sold or transferred

Can't you do it through https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-tax ? Or is that the one that closes at 7pm?

What have you bought? you have not told us and there is no clue in your profile.

Think it is something to do with price speed hump £200 set of Speed averaging cameras  £Quite a lot. Both have the same effect.

Not quite. One generates revenue


Both generate revenue but for different benefactors, Cameras generated for the Government/Council/Police.
Speed bumps generate for garages and the spares department after you have shagged you shockers, or focced your alloy rim.
There are speed bumps going  into a business/trade park in 'Waterlooville' Hampshire (That's where the Southern Bastards live) that I could not drive into when I had a MR2 Spider, she would ground out, front spoiler on hitting the bump and brake pipes and air con pipes when the front wheel dropped off the bump, the joys of a Mid-engine car.

No, left the steel studs in as only 1 needed replacement. Thought I'd go with the stainless nuts for ease of disassembly should it be necessary in the future. Was aware of galling so figured dissimilar metals was the way to go. Plenty of copper grease is my middle name :lol . Once you've seen a seized exup valve, you know it makes sense :thumbup


Good on you Robbo   :thumbup

Hello everyone
I have an issue with my bike and I hope someone can help.
I have played around the idle setting (touching the big screw next to the carbs) and for the last few days I haven’t felt my Fazer to be the same. I think I have managed to find the right balance and the engine is running fine at the moment I’m running on 1100 1400 RPM but I still have some doubts. First few days I have been loosing petrol, then stopped when I found a better balance. Now the cooling fan is coming on more often, it’s true that everything started when the temperature went up, but since I have bought the bike it has never done it. I am trying to avoid to bring it a bike repair shop (they already asked me crazy money to clean the carbs). is there anyway I can try and fixer it myself. Any would be very appreciated.
FYI my bike is a Fazer 600 Year 2001. If you need more info let me know.
Thank you
