FZS600 Fazer / dont try to vinyl wrap
« on: 07 October 2017, 08:56:14 PM »
well incase anyone else has the bright idea to try and DIY vinyl wrap there bike - just dont
holy crap is the tank hard to do, ripped it off and decided just to paint it when i can
it may be the quality of the wrap i used i dont know but will just give it to a professional next time


but there is only one way to find out you cannot do something - and that is to try
-except for flying using arms as wings - never try that, i promise it wont work - even if the drugs make you think you can

That's a very good price.
I bought mine from my local speedway shop in the village. It was about £18.
a SPEEDWAY SHOP in the village
-i live just outside a speedway town and we dont have one of those

i dont know if this will help as i havent got out of bed to go have a look at where you mean to take measurements (9 cans into youtube)
try searching 'threaded spacers' on ebay - i have found a few options to hide bolt threads where they need hidden for aesthetic and mechanical  purposes

when lifting a bike always remember anger is the key
had to pick up a vl800 (about 250kg) after getting knocked off and knackering my leg
shouting Muther F**ker as i literally flung it up made the cager shit themselves
= must admit i was a 15 stone no fat construction worker at the time so that may have helped


but serious downed side of bike bring bars close to rear wheel - turn your back on bike -hold bars, and whatever you can with free hand - and lift
if laying on right hand side - put in gear and kickstand down
health and safety would say bend your knees not your back but in this case it works

I just love Castrol R and I have a can in my shed which I bought to use on my old BSA (now sold) but I pop a bit in my bike every now and then and especially if I'm on a ride-out with some friends just so they can get a whiff.
I was told it is basically castor oil so that's probably why it causes stomach complaints...


Hey Hugh,
Shove a drop of Castrol R in your lawn mower tank about 5 ml will do, makes mowing the lawn a completely different experience.


that might be enough to make me mow the lawn every weekend

been caught out in all weathers as i ride all year
snow so bad i had to ride in the tracks of car in front so close i could see his tail lights (easy crashing distance)
had hypothermia once
and far too often through floods which does wonders for washing the undercarage

if you bought it from ebay then you will have to buy the link pipe seperate
(about £40)
got to ask how much you paid for the stubby alone ?

« on: 29 September 2017, 11:40:19 AM »
just had a crack with the old man and he has never used a dyno for tuning - seems strange but how tuned can a norton get
he is thinking it is probably for plugging lamda sensors and that sort of shit for fuel injection bikes
fuel injection is wizardry in my opinion as ive not learnt it yet (need to grow merlins beard first)

All sounds a bit OTT to me, Dyno operators know exactly what they're doing, I don't think they really need any help.
And exactly how much do you want out of a very old bike anyway?
i dont consider the fazer a very old bike
my other bike is older than me however

not really i tend to have an idea then it gets made up as i go along, i dont like anything standard
i just have no idea on dyno stuff as i have only used one once before and it was years ago on a v-twin with single carb
-prob should ask my father as he has built enough race bikes in his day but they were classic bikes even in the 80s-early 90's
never had a chance of not riding

ooh its getting fully rebuilt and streetfightered - think along the lines of 'major fazer'
i just want to make sure everything is as sweet as possible from the fueling side of things to match how the engine is after its rebuilt
its currently running pods and works well but i know it can be better setup once it hits the dyno after i replace the cheap pods to different setup
if individual exhaust readings make the life of the dyno operator easier to tune things then i will do everything to do that

FZS600 Fazer / exhaust / dyno question
« on: 28 September 2017, 03:49:54 PM »
ok im hoping there is a dyno guy here somewhere


i have seen on some bikes exhaust headers there is a bolt going direct into the exhaust downpipe per downpipe (+extra material to hold it)
i was wondering if this is something that is used during dyno runs to set up each cylinder perfectly air/fuel mixture whatever
i dont have then on mine but i know it wouldnt be hard to fit some if i find out the right thread and depth of the extra bit of steel i need
so i am just wondering if this would be beneficial to the dyno guy when i finally get it ready to do a run to get everything set up as best as possible


i would see it being benificial as it would give a reading from each cylinder and not just one probe down the exhaust
anyone know the score

the paint on my frame was coming away when i bought it in rough shape so i just scraped away the crappy flakey paint and coated with hammerite smooth to protect from the evil tin worm,


when it comes to the rebuild i will probably be using pj1 fastblack epoxy paint as i have heard good reviews on it
if you choose this to patch areas then make sure you use rust remover or kurust otherwise it will flake off again

GCT554N was taken off the road in 1988 by the looks of it

flicking around the spares and found these and thought of this thread
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yamaha-Indicators-x4-and-Relay-USA-Type-Fazer-FZ1-R1-R6-etc-/142516946672?hash=item212eac06f0:g:yUUAAOSw1HxZvSB-

all 4 + relay included for under £15 (forget the relay and change the bulbs to the ones you have)
ok they aint oem fzs600 but should fit 99.8%sure , still look oem to the untrained eye, and look a little bit sharper in my opinion
(i say that by shape as there is no reference to size)

£40 better spent on fuel - i ride like a fool and give my chain evil abuse and have never found extra heavy duty any different for a lightweight 600 - my 1100 heavy bike is a different matter though

just look at max hp and lets be honest - we aint riding supersport 600's

well OCT 554N must have been crushed as its details are no longer available with dvla
-would have gone picture hunting in the allegro owners club archives if it was still on the road

anyone near southampton willing to go give him a hand and switch sprocket covers for an hour or two to see if it helps
(if the problem disappears or swaps bikes then you know the problem is that)
ive checked out the member map and there are few around - but if they read this its a different matter

i think fazer rider is on too something here
in the actuator is a ball which could be worn
also the actuator rod/push rod could be worn
33k isnt a lot but this depends on its life, as a commutor bike in a city will use its clutch 1000's if not millions of times more than someone living in the middle of nowhere and can easy do 20 miles without touching the clutch
i wouldnt normally jump to a conclusion like this but im lost otherwise

aah the old rubber oil seals have turned into plastic problem
thank god for the A series easy pull apart ability (cant count how many we have rebuilt)
just done same thing to pug 205 rallye, exact same problem with hardened valve stem seals
we found running stop leak can sometimes rejuvinate the rubber if not to far gone but not the best solution
classic engines easy - have flat out refused to do my mates bmw head gasket, to much work to be fun

problem with universal o rings is that some degrade very quickly - i think its silicone content that does it
this problem has bit me in the arse twice
1st time replacing fuel tap o ring and it didnt last long (just grabbed some rings from a box meant for water taps)
2nd time was when i bought my girl at the time a little 125 and the previous owner replaced all the hoses with silicone hoses which looked great in blue untill a week before her test the bike decided to spit all its fuel across my garage (thank god it was summer and the central heating boiler hadnt come on during the night, one turn of a hot tap would have caused an explosion)
