FZS600 Fazer / Re: What have you done to your FZS600 bike today
« on: 18 April 2018, 08:30:33 PM »
waited for postman, drank beer, then tried to fit rear wheel bearings only to run out of blowtorch gas so couldn't sweat them all in so started on my brakes to realise there is 18 yrs of crap fouling everything up and forcing one pad into the disc all the time so decided to throw in the towel and drink more beer
(banana bread beer is as weird as it sounds but somewhat nice)
tomorrow it will be calipers in the oven so i can hopefully remove the joining bolts then give them a bloody good clean out and wait for the new piston seals
by mot time that will have the newest back end in the country lol

on a plus side i did get the sprocket carrier bearing in so its at least one step in the right direction

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Multi relay clicking
« on: 18 April 2018, 07:51:42 PM »
it sounds like a resistance issue between positive feed and the relay so my assumption would be on the neutral switch - i wouldnt worry about it for now as you said the bike was to have an 'airing' so i am to guess its not ran in a while - get her out on the road and have some fun and let us know if it is still playing up, after the gears have moved around a few times it might suddenly stop happening

not seen this happen before but to start i would clean the contacts going into the relay - will do a bit of digging later on when i can and see what i can find
(im assuming it is in neutral when it is flashing and not flashing when in gear)

really easy to stop that happening

avoid potholes :lol :lol :lol

FZS600 Fazer / Re: rear sprocket nut torque
« on: 18 April 2018, 06:12:02 PM »
i couldnt find it for the life of me lol
be a bit off now as i have just found why my rear pads are wearing unevenly and have to pull my callipers apart and blast them clear of crap to hold the retaining clip in correctly instead of the dodgy angle it has been sitting at
and of course the bolts are stuck solid so up early in morning to throw the calipers in the oven while no one is in the house (windows wide open)

FZS600 Fazer / rear sprocket nut torque
« on: 18 April 2018, 04:52:18 PM »
i might be having an off day - well 3strong beers in as the postman didnt show then did at 4:30 (rather later even for here)
just put sprocket carrier bearing in and for the life off me cant find the torque value for the rear sprocket nuts
i know they are lock nuts so should be good whatever i do but usually there is a value - any ideas

ran out of gas so cant sweat the wheel bearings in now so its for tommorow afternoon now

think i might just save that pic to my folder of goodies

« on: 18 April 2018, 08:28:04 AM »
its high pressure water with grit in
its a softer approach than typical sandblasting and often better as it gives a smoother more uniform finish

so many people have carbs done this way but i am not a fan as the grit is not soluble and gets everywhere
stripped engines with big holes are fine and can be flushed but carbs should be soda blasted
(just for future refference that last bit - and im looking into starting a soda blasting/ultrasonic service when i get to preston lol)

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Downpipes
« on: 18 April 2018, 12:03:10 AM »
wish that had been an option for me but unfortunatly the studs were rusted so much there was nothing to put a new nut onto either so needed to put new studs on

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Downpipes
« on: 17 April 2018, 10:59:39 PM »
i snapped 6 out of the 8 as mine were absolutly rusted to shite
its just a head off job not a complete engine drop so its not too bad - the worst part of it for me was getting the airbox and carb out
also the head only wanted to come out in one direction for some reason

FZS600 Fazer / Re: FZS600 runs rough after washing the bike
« on: 17 April 2018, 11:34:49 AM »
i just lick my fingers and dab the downpipes, spraying water is the safest option though
i do it quickly and i have asbestos hands (only fairys and millennials use moisturiser lol)

Sa is self amalgamating tape.
Cop is coil on plug

btw i see your new too the site - so always look at what commenters/posters ride - celtic rides a fazer8 which is post 2010 which have a different coil system from us old school boys who like to play with carbs and not computers lol
fzs600 does not come with cops - but some have been experimenting with arguable results
self amalgamating tape is just tape that sticks to itself a.k.a TAPE - i would be pissed at any tape that didnt stick to itself,

I can confidently confirm I am not daviee  :lol  Was the magnification a bit much? Trouble is I start off a bit shy but the longer I'm in a community the more of a piss taker I become. Hope it doesn't get worse with age, only 29  :eek

bad news - IT GETS WORSE
im 35 and already pretty bad
and i will let daviee's post speak for themselves on how it gets worse with age lol

(i will prob be banned after the spring meet for taking the piss)

i wouldnt be suprised if its just your ht leads shorting out
my old chop was missing a rubber cap and started to run like sh*t in the rain and when i went to play with the plugs i got a bit of a shock.
if its fine again tommorow remove each boot and put a smear of silicone around the lead and slide back onto the cap and it will seal it and stop any more water ingress

and thats why i restrained and you didnt lol  :lol

But it wasn't daviee that pointed out the GSXR reference (with a magnified X50 size screenshot), that was Triggergee !!  :lol

Unless daviee just fcuked up, and it was him, the same person using multiple FOC-U Forum accounts. lol. Perhaps a Scooter would be safer bet (MOBILITY Scooter).  :lol

yep your right - i didnt notice that lol

FZS600 Fazer / various bearing sizes - add what you know
« on: 15 April 2018, 12:31:55 PM »
ok so after a post last week and my bearing issues i thought i would start a ongoing link of bearing sizes
please only post actual sizes no jokes etc unless you KNOW a post is inaccurate
please add the year of your bike as although it is likely the same a quick check through fowlers will tell you if its the same part code
- i am a big fan of SKF bearings and would advise that is the route to go

"2000 5dm7"

Rear wheel bearings  - 6204 2RS

Sprocket carrier bearing - 6206 2RS  - mine had a 6206RS which is only one seal and it truely shit the bed

ok so i got my new chain on today and i had the wine coming from the front as it had before but still the clicking at the back aswell
turns out the chain was fine and the sprocket carrier bearing had absolutly shit the bed

the seals had gone and it filled with shite

FZS600 Fazer / Re: New inlet rubber for the carburetors
« on: 14 April 2018, 01:05:00 PM »
What gets me with the Chinese stuff is that they seem to go overboard with the low low cost and as a result produce "some" real crap in terms of fit and or materials. Take those inlet rubbers at £15 - what's wrong with another £10 on to and be able to produce twice the quality, £25 still very cheap. People on here have also had fitting issues with Chinese radiators.     

i think i read that the outlet pipes are at the wrong angle or something - if its just the carb warming pipe thats wrong then i will be laughing as i will just have them tig welded over as i dont use the carb warmers on mine i just bypassed them as the pipes were bunged full of crap and was on and off with the carbs all the time

not sure it just made a unholy racket so i pulled over on outskirts of town and noticed the chain was slack as fuck - limped into town so i could get my hands on tools and saw the link had bent to 45 degrees
my guess is the flare on the link wasnt done right by the last guy or even worse he used a u clip style link (was a newish bike to me)

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Strange noise :/
« on: 13 April 2018, 10:58:28 PM »
i say clicking but what i really mean is an unnerving clunking and as the last chain flung its link i am not taking that risk again as i was only doing about 20 at that time but 5 mins earlier was racing a mate at 110+ (close call much)

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Strange noise :/
« on: 13 April 2018, 10:56:17 PM »
i have a clicking from going down to that 14t on the front and wrecking the chain - im just going with a new chain this weekend if tool arrives
when did you last replace yours?

and thats why i restrained and you didnt lol  :lol

water in + water out --- how did it get fuel to the carb ?????
(ooh crap the sarcasms back)
