Still confused?????
So can I get my Fazer restricted for my son? How or where can I get an official definitive answer?? If the Fazer is no good then I need to find out what his options are and think about just keeping the fazer for me. Not that I have a problem with that its just going to cost me!!! as sons always do. lol

No I didn't I connected wire to wire not to the earth of the horn.  Now where I went wrong (not looking at picture properly).  Will reconnect tomorrow and let you know how I get on.  Am I able to wire something else to the horn as well i.e will I be able to connect a cigarette lighter as well so I can charge my phone and other things or will it be too much for the horn's wiring?

The fuse is fine and the horn still working but the Sat nav did not register it was charging when wired to the horn but did when put straight on to the battery, is there any reason why this might be? I just thought that it would be 12v and work yet it seems to get more complicated? If I can't wire in a Sat nav then I will never get my project bike, Pan euro st1100, on the road!!!!!!!!! Agh!!!!

Told you all that I was a numpty on the tools, it didn't work. wired it to the horn but didn't charge the unit when I put it in the cradle. tried it both ways in case the red wire wasn't the +ve but that didn't work. Had a friendly "know it all" offer his opinion but that didn't make a difference so ended up wiring it straight to the battery for now but would still prefer it to go off with the ignition. could it be that there isn't enough power going to the horn? Or is it just that "if it wasn't for bad luck i'd have none?" Help???

Well going to wire it in shortly and going for the "wire to the horn" as that sounds the easiest and most straight forward to me. also think it will be easiest when i take it off if i change the bike, thinking about that at the moment. Thanks Guys.

its a bike specific unit, garmin 660 zumo, with a charging cradle so thing wiring it straight to the horn might be the most straight forward and about up to my ability. thanks guys. wont be doing it till sunday at the earliest so if anyone else has better advice please let me know.

Just a quick but hopefully straight forward question, how and where should I wire in a Satnav? its only +ive and -ve but should I wire straight to the battery or into the ignition? If the latter where is best? Please use simple words and explanations as I'm a numpty on the tools..... lol.  :rolleyes

Hi All,
Just been for new tyres, needed following MOT failure, and when the front wheel was removed there was a home made spacer in place. The mechanic asked if I had put it there or new why it was there? No & No. Then he asked if I wanted it in or out? No idea I will follow your advice. I think it would be better back as standard says he.
Later he comes up with yet another problem, rear pads had disintegrated, it turns out he had had to put the spacer back in as the wheel would not sit right without. He didn't know what the problem was but said I should try and find out what was wrong and fix it in the future although it was safe for now.
So the  question is this, does anyone know of a common problem with Fazer 600's that needs this type of fix? Should I be worried in the first place as its been like that for the 5 years I've had the bike without causing any problems? :\

Cheers,
it had a cover on but got blown over as a result and smashed in an indicator and did some other minor damage so left it off. did only have a side stand at the time but put a center stand on a few weeks ago so might be ok now.
only one problem with your advice is its been street fighter'd so no mirror housing.... :'(
see pic but ignore my son sat on it, its an old pic.

FZS600 Fazer / Faulty Lights??????
« on: 15 May 2015, 08:03:57 PM »
Hi all,
just a quick question? My bike (1999 Fazer 600) failed its MOT. Failed on both tires, easily fixed as I'm putting on a pair of Maxims, and both the headlight (main and dip) and front left indicator (intermittent problem) not working.
I think the indicator is the switch as it lives out side and I've had to spray it with WD40 in the past. With the headlight I wondered if it was also the switch or might be something to do with the engine swap it had last week? The headlight has never had problems before and the lad that did the engine swap said the clocks did play up at first but settled when he charged the battery, he didn't mention any problem with the headlight.
Now I'm not very good on the tools on my own but will have a go at straight forward things with advice and pointers, I'm a nurse by profession so normally keep my hands clean and fix people.
Anyway any help or advice would be appreciated?
Thanks Drew. :rolleyes

well it's sorted now. turns out it was the ignition. needed to get the [/size]professionals[/color][/size] on it in the end but wanted the [/color][/size]dam[/color][/size] thing on the road. Just need to learn basic [/color][/size]maintenance[/color][/size] for now I think as I got a slapped wrist for over tightening the chain.[/color]
[/size]Out of curiosity is it a straight forward bulb swap to upgrade to brighter bulbs or will that cause problems?[/color]

Re manual dish washing, she's not keen to do it by hand.
[/size][/color][/font]
[/size][/color]Re bike,[/font]
[/color][/size]           1/2 a can of WD, repetitive strain injury from flicking the switch, (hope that [/color][/size]isn't[/color][/size] a [/color][/size]euphemism[/color][/size]?), an ear bashing from the wife, ([/color][/size]apparently[/color][/size] she [/color][/size]doesn't[/color][/size] like being [/color][/size]interrupted[/color][/size] [/color][/size]from[/color][/size] fixing the dish washer to have a look at the bloody bike) it still wont work. tried turning key to the left past [/color][/size]steering[/color][/size] lock to but that did nothing either.[/color]

I'm having problems with the parking lights on my "V" reg Fazer 600, not working. There's no power going to them. is there a separate fuse for them? if so where is it? I've looked everywhere! Even had the wife look! also my passing light not working if that's related?
