FZS600 Fazer / Re: "ONLY" 45K!!

Theres nothing wrong with it, i wanted a winter project...
OK. Well, unless you want to explore the bike's innards just for interest's sake (I've a friend who once took the gearbox out of his Citroen Xantia, dismantled it and put everything back together over the course of a 3-day weekend... purely for the pleasure of learning!), I'd leave the engine alone.
A possible exception is a check of the valve clearances, do you know when they were done? It's not something I can be bothered with these days because, in my experience, the valve seats and cam followers always seem to wear at near identical rates so the clearances stay unchanged, but it might be worth it for peace of mind.
I see you already have plans to clean up the brakes.
Other parts might benefit from dismantling and regreasing such as steering head bearings, swingarm and suspension bearings. Front forks might like an oil change, and a change of dust seals too. Then again, if the dealer can tell you these things have been done recently, I'd just leave the bike covered (maybe with the battery indoors and charged occasionally) and seize the opportunity to ride it every time the weather is fine... it's rare a month goes by without a few good days even in the depths of winter. :)

Thanks i might just stick to the basics

Theres nothing wrong with it, i wanted a winter project and being a newbie to this kinda thing assumed (incorrectly) that if you recondition/replace bits you may be able to do something with the i think of it what a knobish question!!

I've been told that the Fazers fzs600's rear brake has a tendency to cease. Before this happens to me is there something I can do?Maybe an upgrade? If so what? Please help.

Its a great beast, I love riding it. Although I did get battered a bit more than expected on the motorway. I'm so glad the salesman suggested buying a Fazer instead of something more sporty

Hi everyone, tomorrow is going to be a great day I collect my Fazer from the shop. After looking at quite a few bikes over the years and having my CBT countless times I've taken the plunge. I'm like a kid at Christmas i just cant wait.
