FZS600 Fazer / fazer @ preston harley shop tuesday 23rd may
« on: 24 May 2017, 02:37:22 PM »
saw an absolutely gorgeous fzs at preston harley davidson car park but never figured who owned it
through me a bit with the mix of parts then started to figure it out
t reg so must have been a boxeye
boxeye tank
fox eye front fairings
USD forks with custom triple trees
uprated brakes with wavy disc on rear
screamed nice nice nice as soon as i saw it
if anyone has any details on it please let me know the modifications below
and even better would be a photo or two to let everyone see this beauty 

when carbs were off did you blow down the fuel line to check it was clear (should blow through if drained bowls of fuel)
try disconnecting fuel line anywhere after fuel filter and turn ignition on - will run for a few seconds then stop (remember a bottle)
(might as well clean contacts on fuel pump)
sounds like a fueling problem

when i took my fairing off and pulled apart the headlights i was shocked that it was a h1/h4 setup and instantly took a dislike to it
i run dominator headlights in a stacked posistion using good h4's in both
the bike had been dropped by previous owner and the fairing was cracked and frame twisted so it was the easiest option for better lights
-wish i knew then what i know now

paint wont add strength but i wouldnt worry unless you went mental with the sandpaper (if you found it erotic you may have)
-vht clear coat for a shine (i dont trust vht clear myself but have never used )
-any vht black tends to come out dull/matt but saves rust on non stainless parts
-buy a buffing pad and some blue compound (read up on polishing metal)
[/size]personally i would go the polishing route
[/size]sand with finer and finer wet and dry then get a buffing wheel for a bench grinder or handheld grinder with the right compound and go to town
[/size]- i use a handheld grinder with a buffing flapwheel with blue compound and get pretty good results
[/size]i even got mirror finish on a vape machine after finishing with silvol but that might be a bit more than you want

looks like a re-rebuild is definatly on the cards - as with any carb rebuild make sure you have a nice clean area ready to seperate each carb into its own area - go through each piece checking all jet holes are clear etc etc (grandma this is how you suck eggs) - make sure you check your float levels on each carb it is amazing how often this is overlooked (including by myself as it is a final step and im impatient) it never hurts to throw a dose of redex through just before a rebuild (if it runs at least) and get a few miles to let it do its stuff
while carbs are off it would be a good idea to check your inlet rubbers (even though its a rich mixture problem you might as well)
and also ask around your area if anyone has a carb balancing kit (wont hurt to check and balance as you can loosen screws while they are off and make it easy)

« on: 09 May 2017, 08:55:24 AM »
so your problem is a missing wiring diagram for the speedo
- any chance of
1: link to the item you bought (just so we can see what is there)
2: a list of wires you have i.e black,blue, blue (Red tracer) ETC ETC
we might be able to help you out with wiring decoding
if there is a black wire with a white tracer that is prob your earth add that to negative on a battery and test other wires on positive to see what lights up

« on: 08 May 2017, 05:17:12 PM »

it is in german but easy enough to use translation software -
this is the plug that goes into your speedo
make sure there is a 12v feed going down to your speed sensor that seems to be where the problems are.
if you cant figure out which wire should have 12v feed lift your tank and find the  sensor connector and stick a small pin in the wire and use voltage meter to find the 12v one

there is a diagram in the manual as well which is in the download section

- Finished the top end rebuild (again) reset the carbs as only running on three fitted a new chain and sprockets and sprocket nut
- Got the koso style speedo all wired up fired up and found myself doing 100+ through my village so went out with a tomtom and calibrated the speedo
- Got dominator headlights in vertical stacks now
- Exhaust leaking where the linkpipe goes into oem exhaust so filled it with steel putty stuff and its worked a treat (cant afford full FUEL exhaust system yet)
just in time for this weekends festivities
would be crack open a beer time getting all the work finished but its only 10:30 so time for a cuppa

thats what must have kept my sprocketnut on cause after 90k it still had the original nut
-new 12mm nut bought as it is totally goosed now lol

FZS600 Fazer / gold plate in sprocket cover????
« on: 28 April 2017, 01:06:44 PM »
just had the sprocket cover off and it was full of crap (no suprise)
so coated in degreaser to do its stuff while doing some other stuff and a goldish plate appeared
anyone know what is under there ?
just wondering as it may now be full of degreaser and might need regreased if important

« on: 28 April 2017, 11:42:23 AM »
if your getting a new chain might aswell pay an extra £7.45 for the 12mm sprocket nut
- just doing my chain and guess what it was the original 9mm job and the threads were nearly gone - in fact they were when i tightened it up to hold in place while i move shit around
- you might already have the new one on but mine has 90k on the clock and still the original nut so its previous owners have been lucky

« on: 25 April 2017, 10:54:26 PM »
if you use the bike a lot like me just wire brush what you can get to on the frame and wait for a engine out catastrophy before you repaint the engine
-ive used hammerite smooth on the frame and on a few of the scratched casings that are a bit cooler then engine block
- she can wait till the full rebuild for her makeover

rebuilt the top end again today and i now have suction on inlet port 3 whoopp the airbox delete might finally be running like it should
just waiting on the carb fuel inlet nipple and my new chain and sprocket kit and she is back on the road once more
