FZS600 Fazer / Swingarm dimensions / swaps
« on: 26 October 2017, 07:23:53 PM »
Can anyone kindly confirm the exact width of the Swingarm at the pivot bolt - where it fits into the Frame? Im considering this for a swingarm conversion.

Will then look into the options. Would be easier to space one out than have to "reduce" the width....

Looking to pickup all the Service items, to give the Fazer a well earned treat. :)
Are there preferred Service items to look for, which are known to work extremely well in the FZS Fazer ?

For example - will I see better gains (engine responsiveness / efficiency) running a K&N Air filter, over a regular (much cheaper) filter?
Also Spark plugs and Oil - anything that stands out?

Thanks in advance.

FZS600 Fazer / Another Shorty on a Fazer (exhaust that is)
« on: 20 October 2017, 03:01:30 PM »
Now in possession of a new Carbon fibre / Titanium 230mm exhaust - GP Style. From Black Widow.
To replace the standard 500mm Yamaha bazooka! :eek Should see (and hear) quite an improvement!

The 230mm Titanium is not as "fat" at the 200mm Shorty (I inspected both side by side). Slimmer, but a fraction longer.

The weight difference however between the two is substantial. The 200 is a good deal heavier, being stainless steel, compared to the lighter Titanium (0.95kg).
I understand its going to sound roughly as loud as the 200, having approx the same internal cubic area. Also fitted with removable DB Killer. :evil

The Slash tip I'm told can develop that 'titanium burnt blue' colour, which is infact due to a chemical reaction between the exhaust gases/titanium.
(compared to 'unnamed' exhaust cans that have been artificially coloured to simulate that look). Pointless fun fact.

General / POLL: Whats the average age of Fazer Owners ?
« on: 19 October 2017, 09:59:26 AM »
We all buy into a Fazer for different reasons - however interesting to gauge the average age of us dedicated :faz owners!  :)
Please select the age range you fit into..... honestly.   :D

Would be interesting also, to see feedback on why we bought our Fazer - a commuting workhorse, or for leisure (to modify/tinker, for weekend and fun rides out).

As per title, looking for a set of standard handlebar clamp/risers, must be Black. To fit standard 22mm 7/8 bars.
Really looking for a set in mint condition.  8)

Is the mounting Bolt that is visible removable on these? So I could fit shorter bolt, for my FZS, or its a fixed "stud" that cant be removed?:


General / Engine / bike lighting - To "enhance".
« on: 18 September 2017, 11:00:14 AM »
Anyone done this to their Streetfighter [cough].... Fazer? :)

The actual wiring isn't difficult. Just routing the wiring, so its safe from heat plus mostly hidden, would be key.
I know its a marmite thing, and those who maintain their Fazer to factory fresh spec, would be cursing all the way though this Post, but we are all different! LOL.  :lol

Would want something noticeable but subtle, not looking to light her up like a Christmas Tree. Or is this look now soooooo.... 80's !  :eek

General / So who owns a Camper Van? Original VW Camper or conversions.
« on: 14 September 2017, 11:08:53 AM »
Looking for inspiration. Anyone done or doing this? Which Vans make the best platform for a conversation? Considerations. Do's/Don'ts.

Could make a decent winter project, prior to next summer. Plus a big "step up" from lugging a tent around in the boot of the car!

Don't have the workshop facilities (or time) to restore a rusted out VW Camper. Plus not paying £30K+ :eek for one somebody else has already "restored".
So the latter, Van conversation, is the favourite. Where I can design it to my own requirements / plus a little flair. :)

FZS600 Fazer / FZS600 Tail conversion / Swaps (Sports bike grafted)?
« on: 30 August 2017, 10:51:00 AM »
Have been considering Sports bike Tails for my Fazer, especially a couple of Ducati options.

However, perhaps unlike most other sports bikes, the Fazer doesn't have a detachable rear Subframe.
It's all one big welded frame (front to back) - assume which added to some of the cost savings during production.

So the existing frame would need to be cut at some point (something I'm extremely loathed to do), where the donor subframe would be welded on.

Anyone have a Fazer, where such a conversion has been carried out? Success stories? Considerations? PICS?? :D

Does this Forum have an annual printed Calendar produced?

As in, a printed glossy Calendar, months January to December, with a different forum members bike (Fazer) appearing each month.
Members submit their best photo(s), and moderators or forum members get to vote for the best Pictures that will appear?

Gives us something to work towards, plus I'd be willing to pay a small fee for such an item, that I can hang with pride.  8) :D

Introduction / New FZS Fazer owner
« on: 30 August 2017, 09:20:58 AM »
Hello all,

Just registered, thought it the polite thing to do :)
Picked up my (FZS) Fazer about a month ago.

Have for a long time fancied a "naked" bike - the Fazer won, after mulling over the usual favourites... Bandits, Hornets, unfaired Sports bikes, etc.
My previous bike was a Ninja ZX6R Supersport.

Loving the Fazer, have already started on some subtle styling changes, to "enhance" / modernise.
Losing the 90's fairing (ok not so subtle), installed a KOSO Digital Speedo, new Headlight, (Streetfighter oriented tweaks)...

Looks a great active forum, looking forward to spending more time here! Cheers.
