had a few mins out in the garage tonight, looks like someone may have broken into my garage,no damage and i cant see how they got in,for some strange reason they un-bolted the tip sensor,turned it upside down and bolted it back on ......spotted it straight away,turned it over and the old girl fired up first press of the button......bl**dy kids      ;)

cheers UNFAZED...thats saved me a bit if time,whilst i had the rear mudguard of i taped the tip sensor to the frame so i could still run the engine,didnt take much movement to stop the engine running,bikes still jacked/winched at a funny angle so i could access the sump,could just need putting back on the floor to fire up.....

Have you plugged in the coils  :lol








funny you shoud say that UNFAZED....before i turned the engine over for the first time i pulled a couple of leads off the coils so i could turn it over and circulate the new oil around the engine without it firing up.....my moneys on one of two things ,whilst the sump was off i gave the side stand switch a good degreasing with a small nylon brush and some gunk,dont think its been cleaned before and i might of upset something,or,i removed the tilt sensor when i removed the rear mudguard so i need to go back to that and make sure i refitted it correctly......

hi unfazed , glad you understood my early morning ramblings  :lol ...yes,as your picture shows,the one on the right (top picture) is what i`am calling the "mechanical seal" this sits in the water pump housing and is the last one to go in , the one on the left (top picture) is the one i confused with the one which covers the oil pump bearing which goes in before the "mechanical seal"...the seal on the left (top picture) is the one that slides on the shaft and into a housing behind the impeller...the kit on its own dos`nt include the oil seal to cover the oil pump bearing no3 on fowlers excellent website...

a rare day off yesterday and a good time to crack on with the mighty thou.....the "seal cup" i thought was missing wasn`t  :o ...what i was looking at was the "naked seal" that fits between the oil pump bearing and the mechanical seal for the water pump,wear and tear had stripped it of its rubber seal ,obvious when the new seal arrived from FOWLERS (great service again  :thumbup )  as for the seal that came with the mechanical seal that i thought was the seal for the oil pump bearing but needing the "seal cup" to fit  , this fits on the drive shaft directly behind the impeller ,a rubber seal thats a snug fit in a housing with a moulded in nylon  washer which rests on the spring loaded mechanical seal,i missed this one as not listed on FOWLERS but you live and learn , a TOURMAX item, a company i have used before and quality and fit were as good,if not better than original  :thumbup ......


assembled the two pump`s and now has a very smooth,dampened action when turned by hand,refitted to bike which was a bit of a fiddle,took many attempts to loop the drive chain around the sprocket and slot the pumps into place but done now,refitted large bore oil pipe with new o rings ( R10 ) oil strainer and then refitted the clutch , not much more to do now but there is a little niggle on my mind....the chain that runs of the back of the clutch basket down to the water/oil drive sprocket seams to be a bit loose, has a guide,tensioner on it and theres not enough slack in it to jump off the sprocket so should be ok....but its niggling me...ive searched you tube but theres not much on there for the fazer,R1 looks the same and ive watched a few from us which have been very good so will search them out again and take a second look before refitting sump and clutch covers ...


good reading for sunday morning  :lol ...i`ll post some piccies in a minute, might make things a bit clearer   ;) [size=78%]   [/size]

So that's what the bloke is doing with the litter picker and black bag. I always wondered.

Keeping unemployment down?

Seriously though, people on community service or in open prisons should be doing that work.

hi UNFAZED........its not listed or shown on the fowlers website and not really a seal,its a metal cup that holds the oil seal (no 3 on fowlers) that fits between the bearing and the mechanical seal,the seal i have dosn`t have this cup/holder but its not gen yam , i`am hoping the fowlers gen yam one will come with the cup/holder.......i`ll see if i can post some piccies later which will explain it better...

had an hour to spare this afternoon so had another go at the oil seal...finally got it out  :) ......comparing old to new seals and all`s good but i dont have the metal "cup" that holds the inner oil seal,going to check fowlers and see if its available,so,another hurdle to jump and more time waiting for parts,all worth it come spring time  ;) ;)
