FZS600 Fazer / Re: carb diaphragm screws
« on: 03 May 2018, 11:30:49 AM »
i picked up a set of cheap hammer through screwdrivers on ebay (solid grey case, blue handles) about 12 of them
and they are the closest i have found to work on bike screws but it was pure luck if im honest with ya.

Only needs nipping up, Loctite would be totally unnecessary.
But saying that, i had a new valve put in my rear wheel a couple of months ago and whoever did it Loctited the dust cap on which I wasn’t too impressed about?
lol never heard of anyone doing that before   :rollin :rollin :rollin

just give them a good dose of plusgas or similar long before you try to remove them
half the problem isnt the screws its the screwdrivers used - they are J.I.S screws and not phillips like most people have
J.I.S screwdrivers (japanese industrial standard) are not a common find in toolboxes although on my want list

Given the choice I would not have the hazards at all, about as much use on a motorcycle as Air Con


if a C90 dont have it then it is not needed - how can the worlds most produced motorcycle be wrong
and you can deliver your noodles while riding one handed so how could Fujisawa be wrong

the fazer is the first bike i have had with indicators in years and i have been guilty of leaving them on once or twice
only used hazards a handfull of times usually to check all my bulbs are working or to tell other road users they have left theres on
(only once due to a breakdown as i ran out of fuel and was pushing along a road at night to the petrol station)

just had a quick look at the difference - looks like a 2k switch cluster will just plug and play onto a 98 loom and you will have hazards
the electrical magic is done in the switch cluster so as long as the plug is the same (most likely is) it should be plug and play

ooh the 98 doesnt have hazards (yep i did a quick look on ebay to double check)
if you get a later model switch with the button and have a look through the two wiring diagrams to find the difference you should be able to fit them easy enough with an extra couple of wires

sorry i did say run a fused wire but this was on an assumption  that there would be a relay included
i have only fitted spots onto classic cars and they always come with relays as a package
i was thinking you were meaning running the spots on the same switched live as the high beams

my carb heater hoses were blocked to buggery but as i was messing with the carbs all the time i just bypassed it, if you keep your bike in a garage then it isnt an issue and when it is really cold it isnt either as i was ridng in ice and snow the other month that didnt cause any issues (and im riding with pods which would make it worse)

i would run an extra fused wire from the battery to run them

Before you put new coolant back in after getting things sorted i would seriously advise using some RadFlush to give the internals a good clean up.


We don't have that over here  :rollin
I'll try to find some alternative.


i have read an aluminium safe descaler has been used to good effect, dishwasher and washing machine descaler is the same stuff
but i really mean it has to be ALUMINIUM SAFE - if you know anyone that works in the kitchen / food prep industry they might be able to get there hands on it


shame the pipes have gone that way


i want to be out riding  in this sun aswell but im rebuilding my entire rear end and just got sent the wrong bolts and still waiting for a new brake disc (that was my fault as i bent it by dropping an engine hoist on it  :wall [size=78%])[/size]

i hope you kept them because if you have no luck finding some it might mean having some fabricated
problem will be finding someone willing to, custom car builders could (is they do custom rads) as could any firms that repair hydraulic machines as pipework is often damaged

it could be a weak mixture so the corrosion inhibiters are not strong enough yes
a catalyst to corrosion could also be caused by limescale which is caused by hard water in hot systems


-- from a central heating company --
The building blocks of limescale are calcium and magnesium.  Thus, one would think that limescale should have a white color.  Yet, limescale deposits are usually brown!  When limescale deposits build up, iron and oxidized iron particles get caught and are imbedded in the limescale.  Rust firmly attaches itself to your pipes, causing serious threats such as corrosion.

if you go track racing (road racing) you have to use water only - no coolant is allowed following acu regulations
water is one of the best coolants there is but unfortunatly for us it freezes and in some areas is full of crap
hard water areas should not fill coolant straight from tap thats one of the things that causes issues

seen your other post but posting here instead for future references
the iten numbers above are slightly wrong  (too long)
fowlers list these as back order and are bloody expensive (if backorder is available)

dont throw the old ones away just yet because if you cant find any then there is still the option to have some fabricated
i would probably go to a hydrolics engineering firm for this but i say that as there is one in my village so they are close

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

i may have gone over the top cleaning this brake caliper
those joining bolts are a bugger to get out and covered in corrosion
split and sand blaster them clean will be painting black i think

just had a thought as we here about flashing and we think instantly of indicator speed - you havent by any chance got one or more of those silly fuses with the led to tell you its broken in do you
i did once upon a time and this happened
