For Sale & Wanted / Re: WANTED: EXUP Valve Gen 1 FZS1000

You could be lucky with your one that you've got "in soak". However those valves can sometimes not be freeable. Flooky, on this forum has been trying to free up his original one, which had few miles on it, since September 2015  :lol . It's been seriously heated, and soaked in just about every release agent known to man. :rollin

Also if you come across one from a Thunder Ace of the same period.
Thanks robbo, another one I can keep my eye out on! Got some R1 pipes arriving today/tomorrow so fingers crossed the valve in them is ok. Seller made it sound alright!

So looks like my EXUP valve is completely seized solid in the housing so I'm looking to get hold of another one, preferably that actually comes apart! Thanks

Just wondering: have you tried freeing up your existing EXUP assembly? Heat it up and stick it in some penetrating fluid: WD40, paraffin + oil, diesel, etc. Might take a while but with a bit of persistence you may get it free.

Thanks stet, we are going to keep working on the existing valve, we have actually started to get movement from it  but I'm not sure if its going anywhere quick yet though. Cheers for the info!

It's also worth checking that the clutch is correctly adjusted of course, (apologies if that's teaching you to suck eggs).

Thanks, it's a lovely bike, so much better than my current Gen 1, and it's got 10k more miles on it.

The hire car we had on holiday last year had an electric handbrake. The only way it would stall on a hill start would be if you naused up your clutch control, just the same as having a regular manual handbrake. As has already been mentioned it releases as soon as forward motion is detected. No point in having a hill start on the driving test, maybe they don't anyhow as I passed mine in the dark ages :lol .

Is it still possible to stall with hill start assist, or does the system provide an anti-stall feature?.

No idea, mines an auto

Keyless entry, stop start systems and electric handbrakes in cars.

Was going to change the car but cannot get a one without all that crap. :grumble

And totally a LCD second dash I was looking at a picasso and the radio -air con - heating controls are on one LCD dash if the radio is on you have to "navigate" to the heating section to change that and then navifocinggate back taking your eyes off the road --stupid.   
Also push button start WTF - it actually takes longer than putting a key in and turning - all one action, but a push button you first push the keyfob in a hole in the dash and then press the start button -stupid.
AND i want a CD player please !!!!!!!!!!!

A lot of these features are becoming pretty much standard across the ranges now tho.

If you want a new car you're probably going to have to accept some of these things.

I'm not hankering for an electric handbrake and an engine that keeps cutting out, but what choice is there now?.

They lay half an inch of salt on the roads round this way nearly every night, so cars only have a limited life span I guess.

At least most of the new large saloon cars are stunning to look at unlike most of the new bikes where there now appears to be a competition to see who can come up with the most ugly disjointed look possible.

I think you need to do a bit more riding and a little less worrying!!  They are budget bikes and will make some noises. You can generally tell if it's serious like you know if you are ill or if it's just a sniffle. If everything works then ride it!!!
