General / Re: what did you do with your fazer today ?

The mechanic showed me the old ones afterwards, which were seriously rusted! Apparently there's a rubber stopper at the bottom of the headset which means that water can condense inside, then gets trapped, so the bottom bearings are sitting in water :(

I'll have to remember to take it out occasionally to let it drain.


I have mine absolutely lathered in grease. A mate once said I was wasteful as I used far too much grease on those bearings but I've never had to adjust them or replace them so maybe it's not such a waste.

Fixed it! The airbox to carb 3 rubber clip was slipping off , finally got it back on square n not too tigh5, test ride, and ......right up to the redline! 2nd gear 90 mph, 3rd gear 100, ran out of road, getting too much attention from the farmers so that will do nicely. Thanks everyone, I did check the choke plungers and they all do go back but this made me look closer at the rubbers, so I saw the potential problem. Wasn’t looking forward to taking the carbs ou5 again.
