Just one relay is required, it's a like for like replacement so just unplug the standard one and plug in the new.

Ah I was mistaking relay with resistor

Just out of interest, where do you connect the relay to?  I'm assuming there is only the one relay, you don't need one per indicator?

If they're anything like the L.E.D ones I used then you need 1 relay per side (one for both left indicators and 1 for both right) and they are just small 2 inch long blocks with wires either end. 1 end plugs into the original bike connection and the other into the new indicator.
I ok both mine on the back ones as it was easier to hide them in the 'boot' than behind the headlight

Have you run the new bikes plate on the government website to see if it is showing as taxed? If it is then you should be fine.
To be honest if your going to be out on it before 7am then I wouldn't worry about it, what are the chances if seeing a copper, let alone a traffic one at that time in the morning?

General / Disc bedding procedure
« on: 19 April 2018, 07:24:40 PM »
For this of you who have bought new discs or had a brand new motorbike..... what is the typical bedding in process??
I've never had either before and as such was just planning on riding as normal for a few weeks before being heavy on the brakes, but reading online there seems to be various different methods ranging from jamming them on at speed, slowly braking from increasing speeds and riding for X amount of yard with the brakes slightly on?
Anyone have any advice on a good way to bed them in correctly?

Took the 600 for its MOT - passed, no advisories, absolutely spot-on.

Dudeofrude - what brand of discs did you go for ?

Can't remember off the top of my head but they aren't ebc or anything I'd heard of. They were on offer at my local yammy dealer, £200 for the full set. I known its probably sales spiel but the guy reckoned they are popular for the track bikes that they sends up to cadwell as a sponsor so should hopefully be alright. Anythings better than the states that were on there 😣😣

As for what I did today..... went to Willingham woods bike night, absolutely rammed. Saw some stunning bike too

Personally my biggest concern with lithium batteries is their tendency to explode when pierced, not a great thing to have in something as delicate as a motorbike in my opinion. It's the same problem all these fancy new electric cars are going to have, catch them wrong in an accident and it's gonna look like a Hollywood car crash.
I know the chances any kind hitting them under your seat it quite minimal but it's still a risk

I've been doing the same ( shooting the squirrels) only mine are a reddish colour not grey. Think it might be the red clay rubbing off on their fur when they're down their burrows.
Think they're all young un's too as they seem smaller than usual.

Anyway, so far I've bagged over a hundred and haven't seen any about for a good few months now.

Seems like a good method of getting rid of vermin..... I might try the same thing outside my local dole office 🤔

Finally fitted the new discs front and back, titanium bolts all round, new rear brake line, new pads all round, all calipers cleaned and serviced.... good to go for the summer 😎👌

Yeah, the floor tiles are from Costco, like you say they make garage seem a lot warmer and no more cold feet. Had mine down for over 10 years now and they need replacing. General wear and tear plus wifes pet rabbits like to chew them for some strange reason.

I had mine carpeted for the same reasons haha soaks up any spills or leaks quite nicely too. Just get an earful off the missus when I take the Dyson out to clean it haha

My current one (pictured) is about 6 inches but my old exhaust (from a16) was only about 3 inches long. So I suppose different manufacturers use different baffles. As long as it has a smaller hole then it'll be quieter

Years ago not long after I passed my test I tapped the back of someone in the car, we both got out looked at the little scuff we both had he said narh that's fine and we both carried on our way. But that was both older cars with proper bumpers - the clue is in the name BUMBER - for bumping. These days you so much as touch it and it shatters into a 1000 peices and you are looking at a £600 PLUS labour replacement.
I prefer it when you see in other countries everyone has dents in their cars and when you clip someone a few swear words are exchanged but no one even stops.

While living in Spain we often used to watch people 'parallel park' by Whig I mean drive forward until you bumped the car in front, then reverse until you hit the car behind then repeat until you were satisfied you had parked 😂
Shocked the hell out of us when we first moved there but after a while you got used to the fact that you car was just gonna be scratched and everyone elses

FZ6 / Fazer / Re: Performance gain from K&N air filter?
« on: 06 April 2018, 11:11:34 PM »
In a word No, if it combined with a free flowing exhaust then you may experience a 1-2 bhp increase but that's only due to the increase air flow, which in turn will make the bike run slightly lean so that increase will only be a certainly rpms.
If the bike is currently running slightly rich then the K&N could help improve the power but other than thats its only useful when you start having it tuned that's when you start falling down the aftermarket/modding rabbit hole,
1 day your buying a free flowing air filter and 6 months down the line your trying to decide if you want your new lightweight pistons to be forged or cnc milled aluminium .... its a slippery slope haha

With 50 year NCB your insurance should be foccin free!!
There should be a limit to how much you pay in your lifetime (day 10k) once you reach it you then don't have to pay anything unless you have an accident. Then the cost of the accident is deducted and you'd have to pay again until you reached the limit. Would make a much fairer system and the companies would still make money from the interest so it would be win win 🤔

Went out for a spin up to RAF conningsby with a few mates. Saw some great aerial displays from the Jets.
Then went for a cruise over to Cadwell Park to watch a few track day sessions.
Great weather and a great ride

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Rear tyre balancing question
« on: 03 April 2018, 06:45:41 PM »
Yes, he's talking bollox.
Everything that has mass & rotates will vibrate & needs balancing, you may be unable to detect it, but it will defo vibrate if not balanced.
Personally I leave all components fitted (discs & sprocket carrier etc) achieves a better dynamic balance of all rotating parts, most tyre fitting places don't balance with sprocket carrier fitted tho.
All depends on what equipment you're using to balance a wheel.
ie) Electronic Dynamic balancer
ie) Home DIY frame type balancer
I fit & balance my own tyres & use lead bike specific weights, I have access to both types of blancers but prefer the frame type for bike wheels.
I'd never allow a tyre fitter to balance my wheels, they don't seem to give a shit about how they remove old balance weights or consider where they slap on on fugly balance weights... But then I'm OCD as F***K.

Yeah I was gutted about this myself. I have lovely gold powdercoated wheels and they go and stick two fugly lumps of grey metal on them, could have at least asked me first.
I know its superficial but you'd think they'd do coloured ones by now haha

A lot of people put a lot of effort into getting here from other countries so we can't be all that bad can we?.

Oh and I wonder why that is 🤔 I wonder what single thing makes this country a better place to come and live over Greece, France, Germany, Belgium etc etc....... certainly ain't the weather is it
