FZS600 Fazer / Re: HELP really need some speedo advise
« on: 07 March 2017, 04:09:34 PM »
i checked them yesterday hoping that was the problem but everything was fine
the original rotor was cracked and i took the bike through a flood last week so i have a feeling some water may have got into the sensor and fried something
when the new one arrives i might disect it to see whats actually inside one of those
-first time i have worked on a dodgy electronic speedo i dont normally bother with speedos at all
wouldnt bother at all if it didnt screw with the ignition timing

interesting development i measured the white wire today all plugged in (use a pin) and the speedo was jumping all over the place
(no rotator in the sensor)
measured the voltage and it was jumping all over the place at times then doing nothing at others
same thing happened when i put the rotator in and spun it
ordered a new sensor from fleabay for £30

as i have only owned the fzs a month i have to ask
what the front sprocket nut issue is
looks like the threads disappearing / anything else i should know
(one more little job to look at tommorow)

damnit looks like im going to have to buy a speedo sensor and hope its that
thank god for ebay cause £100 is just ridiculous

fairing was damaged by previous owner so :switched to dominator headlights
when i get the factory speedo working again
koso style speedo going on
dominators will be vertically mounted
future plans include
renthal bars in blue
streetfighter tail piece eventually
alarm removed or deactivate button hidden under tailpiece
all will be painted metalflake blue
then will start really upgrading with usd forks and custom triple trees
prob build a new braced swingarm to match wheel

my speedo packed up the other day so i stripped the front down and found the rotor sensor damaged
---no diagnosis readings given on rev counter----(did once while riding but only once)
new one fitted and put together CORRECTLY no snapped lugs etc
still no speedo, getting no pulse signal to the spedometer (white wire) just sits at 3.8V
readings on the loom side of the speedo plug
blue and yellow - 12V /  white 4.61V / black and blue 0V and earths
if anyone could test that they have 4.61V on there white wire would be helpfull as that is the only one i dont think should have any voltage

all advise will be taken its driving me and my father nuts (we hate modern electronics)

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Centre Stand
« on: 05 March 2017, 07:47:48 PM »
i had similar problem earlier this week - decided the swingarm stand was the way to go
i very rarely use center stands anyhow so will take off to have a look and throw it into my spares cupboard

- took both me and my dad to get it on center stand today and even then it wasnt easy
i would say its f**ked

just realised it is a hall switch down in the sensormight to use the magnet reed switch they supplied with the new speedo
however the ecu still needs the speed signal, going to just try feeding 12 volts down the speed sensor supply wire and see what happens
i.e   R/G   connected straight to   L/Y
Any thoughts or previous experiences that have worked (will keep you updated either way for future searchers)

i am starting a swap over aswell to a cheap chinese koso copy
doing lots of research before hand  and the only thing i cant figure out is where to send the 12v speed sensor (blue/yellow) as i only have an input for the speedo signal into my new clocks

quick thought - anyone know if the positive voltage is coming from the clocks down to the sensor and then sending the pulse back up
i can easily wire that sensor supply straight to a permanant positive if that is the case.

thanks for reminding me - need to adjust my gear lever
its still set for the short guy who had it before me

for commuting just get a link pipe and have your choice of end cans
them things will cause you no end of grief
i used to have a 115Db vl800 and it just brought too much attention (especially leaving my estate for early shift)

 cant figure out pictures so in all foocer bucket;sa=album;in=79
Forks blasted and painted black (pic)

speedo bracket design (pic)
possible vertical dominator headlights (tilt head to right/ laptop to left) [/size](pic)
oil topped up/chain lubed/ hammerited some rust where paint flaked
usual stuff to keep busy and make a mess

speedo stopped working so removed wheel and found it broken
thought i would give the legs a lick of paint and snapped all the fender bolts (17 yr oxidization sucks)
removed entire forks to remove bolts and paint
making a new bracket to fit my koso style speedo and get the dominator headlight wired up nice and tidy
need a jigsaw to cut the ally bracket nicely so doing a few little jobs tommorow untill i can get to screwfix
will try and remember to take some photos tommorow.

FZS600 Fazer / speedo sensor testing ???
« on: 03 March 2017, 01:18:50 PM »
ok so speedo stopped working the other day and obviously plays with timing as engine turned to shit afterwards
engine became fine later and rev counter giving the 4k speed sensor error
front off this morning and found the rotator is cracked and loose (new one getting ordered)
i spin the rotator in the sensor at high speed and getting no reading
does anyone know how to test these using a multimeter and the three pins???
(beware removing front mudguard - even after wd40 last night all 4 still broke lol)

in west cumbria they are replacing expansion joints on a bridge (the little gaps at each end)
its going to cost £500,000 and take nine weeks to cut out to strips of tarmac rebolt in plates and retarmac
they have 30mph average speed cameras at the bridge but only for 100yds before you get there each side
then no-one accelerates to the NSL once they get to the signs - thank god bikes are slim and the cameras are forward facing :evil

only had my fazer 2 weeks - on phone to insurance saying all standard while cleaning the brackets for streetfighter headlights lol

my insurance think my gsx1100 chop is completly standard - in reality the engine casing and lower half of cradle came from the factory lol
tell them nothing - most of the time they dont look at it
but do not use an email connected to an open facebook cause they occasionly look which cost me 30 to have it refused lol

finally got round to stickerbombing the rear center panel to cover the hole untill i can do it properly or replace
and given the seat a leather treatment as it dried out after taking it swimming in the recent floods
-no joking check out [size=78%]

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Fazer 600 Link Pipe
« on: 24 February 2017, 11:28:39 PM »
+graham53 --- they baffled the link pipe ?? are they retarded all that does is create a resonance back pressure increase in a way that only the engine gets it, making it harder to breathe, when a can holds it back it has some deadening in the exhaust packing which reduces it aswell as creating a lower back pressure which means less back pressure to the engine (ooh i already see the physics arguements coming out of this one) - check out exhaust resonance in 4 stroke engines to get really baffled (no pun intended) by science.

« on: 24 February 2017, 11:16:30 PM »
a reg/rec should not cause issues in this respect - give me a minute here
a reg rec is there to supply power to battery, try a voltage meter you can see, would tell you if anything is wrong there as voltage would drop from 14.5ish to a sub 12v at the problem rev range
i am suffering this same problem and working through it periodicly

DO NOT try using the tesco high octane fuel or pro-milage stuff whatever its called
(actually if someone can and say its shit aswell) as it changed my power characteristics for the worse

i will be going back to standard octane fuel ASAP or maybe some from asda as it is all different (remember it isnt for power its for milage)
i found using standard fuel it is easy enough to learn the rev ranges- remember the fazer is known as a great commuter bike for couriors and the reasons are there to see 4k-7k works great for town 8.5/9k + quick acceleration like a powerband for overtaking on major roads - these are not R6's remember

im with you totaly i want more power and a more usable smooth power range but there are lots of things to consider
- looking at a new 2nd hand exhaust system so will let you know - unless everyone wants to chip in a £1 or two and i will go down to fuel exhaust head quarters and try one out and blag a discount for foc-u users lol (they are actually really close and i want to see there warehouse lol)

its a shame its a welded on subframe really - with my 87 fz600 (not fz6) i was able to buy a subframe then weld up a holding jig and play away with the arse end untill it had tail i wanted
just realised how kinky that sounded but thats bondage 101 learn to weld up a holding cage while you play with the arse end lol

you can spend a lot of money and get nowhere with this one.
your best off looking for a new slip on with a removable baffle
