FZS600 Fazer / Re: What have you done to your FZS600 bike today
« on: 15 July 2019, 09:05:23 PM »
Replaced the fuel tap becasue I thought it was leaking only to find it was the pipe with a slight split.
Replaced the water pump as I couldnt get a good seal on the outlet pipe only to find it was still leaking.
Gave it a wash.


I don't normally watch it as I find it boring though 20/20 is a lot better.

When England started batting, they were favoured 80/20 to win. By the time I went out for some dinner, it was down to 50/50 and then about 5 overs from the end it was looking more like 20/80 in NZ's favour. I didn't think they would manage it but what a finish.

Now, my understanding of Cricket is from school some 30+ years ago. 241-8 I though was a winning score compared to 241 all out. They got away with it though and then fluked that boundary to get a 6 from the knocked on ball in the super over (Who the fec knew what one of them was before yesterday?)!!

It may help, it may not, but the idle should be between 1150-1250. I tend to set it to 1250 as its easier to work out on the rev counter,

All the wires going to the alarm are black. It looks like a switched live from the ignition.

If you look at the ignition in the 98 wiring diagram;sa=view;down=8
The diagram shows a connection between the blue wire coming off the ignition and the black wire going between the alarm and the ignitor. Is that connection a mistake?

Looking at the diagram, I canot see a blue wire coming from the ignition. I can see a black wire that connects to the black wire to the igniter/alarm

I dont have time to trawl through the wiring diagram again now but......

The switchgear has a common feed. Cant remember the colour but try checking to see if you have 12v on that and work back to the battery/ignition switch from there if it doesnt.

Which model bike do you have?

For the FZS600, it is a simple check. Just read this

Looking at the wiring diagram posted by Unfazed, the brown wire from the RHS switch assembly appears to be common with all of the items you have said are failing.
I would definitely be checking that all the way back to the connector block.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Will later fzs 2002---2004 engine fit??
« on: 10 July 2019, 08:30:02 AM »
Yes, it will fit but a couple of the connectors may need to be changed/adapted. Cannot recall which ones though.

General / Re: radar speed sign?
« on: 09 July 2019, 06:33:03 PM »
Vehicle speedos can be up to 10% out but only allowed to over read, so at a true 30mph, your speedo could read as high as 33mph.

As mentioned above, as your tyres wear, the speed on your speedo will increase by up to 3-4% whilst your true speed remains constant.

Sounds like a sticky caliper. It will need stripping and cleaning.

Having looked at the wiring diagram from the downloads section (;sa=view;down=45), the relays only deal with the high/low beam element.

Given all the faults you have, I would look at the one common thing, the ignition switch cables/connectors.

The box eye doesnt use any relays as standard. I would have though the fox eye was the same

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Parking lights
« on: 01 July 2019, 08:27:52 PM »
When I put my park lights on (key all the way anti-clockwise) only one of the tail lights comes on (the left one). At the front, both side lights come on.

Is that correct or do I have an issue on the tail light?

You have a failed bulb in teh tail light. Both should be on.

Price and location?

There used to be 7 main dealers in my City up until just a few years ago selling all the brands. Every single one has closed down. Says it all :\

35 years ago when I started riding, in Crawley we had 4 bike dealerships. One did Kawasaki, one did Suzuki, one did motor cross stuff and one did all sorts. The next town to the west (Horsham) had one bike shop, the one to the east (East Grinstead) had 2 or three and the town to the north (Horley) had one. Today, we have P&H and Crawley having now taken over all the brands locally and T.Northeast in Horley. The next nearest bike shops are bout Triumph dealers which are about 40 mins away.

35 years ago, every 16 year old had a moped or wanted a moped and many went on to ride bigger bikes. Today, barely any mopeds are on the road and not many of those are ridden by people who want to go onto bigger bikes.

35 years ago, or thereabouts, the 2-part test was introduced with part one being in the car park dodging cones and part 2 was on the road riding around the block with an examiner jumping out from behind a tree to see you do an emergency stop. Once you took that test at 17 you could ride anything. Today, you need to do the CBT before you can even think about going on the road, then the hazard perception (which is really aimed at car drivers) then the theory then the cone avoidance and finally a long complicated road test with an examiner who may or may not be following you in a car because it goes against their H&S to let them ride a motorbike :pokefun

Is it any wonder less people are interested in bikes these days?

off Roger Rabbit

That's a nice clean looking bike but the price is high for a UK buyer. May not be high for someone in Ireland though. Was that a standard colour in Ireland? Certainly not a UK colour. Looks good though.
