Thank you - I'll check it out.
The valves were also checked yesterday along with the plugs and coils so also wondering if the cam shaft position sensor could be an issue (would need to be disturbed to get the cam cover off)?


Don't think it's the coil despite the fault code as I think it would run on 3 cylinders (as it had last week...) runs now on 1/2 a cylinder.


Cheers

Help Guys!


Bike's just had new plugs and coils fitted today - was running so well (had been miss firing etc).
Then 12 miles on engine cuts out and engine warning light comes on. Does run but on 1/2 a cylinder not like 3 cylinders.   :eek


Error code 34 shown on screen - coil nr2 (was one of the ones replaced).


Is this correct? If so I'll drop the rad off and change the coil for one of the old ones.


Thank you for your help.


cheers

Guys
For whatever reason the text I uploaded isn't readable....
After a bit of searching about have fitted Barkbusters Blizzards to the Gen 2 FZ1 that are fabric with a supporting armature/support to stop them collapsing onto the levers (unlike the Oxfords I used to use) and although they do touch the fairing on full lock they give a little so not a problem.
Used then last night - rain/sleet and 2 degs C on the m/way and report all warm using nr 2 setting on the Oxford heated grips - am hoping that I can go back to summer gloves now for the winter.
A big thanks to A2 motorcycles in Gravesend who provided the advice, had the Blizzards and the important Aluminium adaptors that thread into the Yam handle bar ends on the shelf. About £90 all in about 30 mins to fit.
Tried to upload images but it keeps crashing.

« on: 20 December 2018, 04:56:35 PM »
I've had this a few times on my 2009 Gen 2:


Unbolt the mirror and remove the boot, take two sockets and place one each side of the thin tube that's holding the mirror assembly together and gently apply pressure in a vice to the sockets so that the tube is lightly compressed (ie the sockets need to be sized so that are bearing on the rim of the tube).


Might take a couple of goes


Then re-assemble and check it's wobble free. If not repeat.


Hope it works

Great - thank you, off to the tip then after removing the spring.

Need to be complete with wiring harness and not rotted out (like the ones I have!).

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / FZ1 Gen 2 - rear shock
« on: 29 November 2018, 08:33:45 PM »
Off to the tip at the weekend - just checking that the old shock of the Gen 2 can't be rebuilt? The spring on it is grey/silver while the 2nd hand replacement I put on the bike about 2 years ago is yellow and a bit harder.
Looking in manual I didn't see any spring rate/color charts - any ideas?


Many thanks

« on: 25 November 2018, 07:09:21 PM »
Need some more advice please:

For years I had a BOC ticket and porta pack oxy-acet with the usual stuff for cutting and welding etc then about 3 years ago the licence renewal came in at £400 or so and just not worth it as a nice to have in a DIY workshop and using it every two/four weeks or so.

Be good to have it back (but not at that £400+ price tag) for heating , welding and brazing - has anyone experience of the canister/aerosol fed oxy-acet or oxy propane (less hot but think ok) systems??

Many thanks

Thank you !!!! I'll check the Barkbusters out sounds like they should fit a Gen 2.

Many thanks for the photos as well - they look pretty smart.

cheers guys.

Guys


Need a bit of advice please: have fitted Oxford muffs before and while they do keep hands warm they collapse onto the levers at remotely high speeds. I've heated grips and prefer to ride with summer gloves hence the need for a bit more wind protection.


Any other options that fit the bike and work ok? - don't care what they look like!


Thanks

Think it's ok as I fitted what was meant to be a super slippy one and then once fitted and found the lever still to be heavy so disconnected one end of it to check that it wasn't dragging or badly routed and it seemed fine.

Think the probs are with the slots the plates sit in and they may need dressing with a file or renewing. Saw another post about the plates overheating and suggestions of drilling holes in the basket - don't think that's yet my problem!
Thx for your advice.

Hi
I'm about to strip down the clutch as it's time for new plates etc (not helped by the fact I slip the clutch and can't get out of the habit..) and to figure out why the clutch action is so heavy (cable's fine).
Any tips or is it straight forward?
Thank you

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Gen 2 - clutch actuation force, post nr 2
« on: 14 June 2017, 06:39:10 PM »
I've checked the new slippery cable that was fitted a month or so ago and it's all free - disconnected at the lever on the bars and it runs smoothly and easily.

Clutch force required to actuate is pretty high and, comparing to other FZ1s and R1s with a similar engine, it needs approx twice as much force to actuate. Think I'll wear out my two clutch fingers soon!

The clutch is original at 49,000 miles of mainly town commuting (also lots of clutch slipping as I'm really a 2T rider).

Before I tear it down any specific ideas to FZ1s  on what to look for other than the usual worn basket etc and possible solutions and products?

Any ideas would be much appreciated.
Thanks guys

Thanks Slappy - I'll check as you suggest; did think I'd got the routing ok :)
The new cable was super smooth out of the bike so think that you are probably right!

Cheers and have a good weekend.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Gen 2 clutch lever actuation force
« on: 25 May 2017, 01:36:12 PM »
Need some views/advice please:
My Gen 2 has done 48,000 miles commuting and the clutch cable was quite stretched, so bought what was described as a super slippery one from Wemoto. Eventually changed the cable after being a bit ditzy (think I was tired – see earlier post) and although the new cable was a lot smoother out of the bike compared to the new one the actuation on the lever is still reasonably stiff compared to say my mates ’04 R1.

Cable route seems ok etc as per the old one that came out.

Any ideas or solutions please – I tend to ride using 2 fingers for each lever and also slip the clutch as I’m also used to riding 2 strokes off road (ok these have hydraulic clutches)...
A bit lower force would be good to have and my finger joints might last a bit longer!

20
All done now - think I was pretty tired when I got back yesterday as up since 0300 hrs; anyway some wine and sleep seem to have helped figure it out.

Trick is to use a socket to release the nut on the end of the cable at the actuator end, all a bit of a faff.

Super smooth cable that I've fitted really doesn't seem any better although it is new while the old one was v stretched after 47,000 of in town commuting (lots of clutch changes and slipping).

Have a good weekend

Hi Guys

Had a quick look at the cable this evening:
Lever end is now pulled through to under the tank
Clutch cable bracket at clutch actuator end is released but unable yet to get the locking nuts undone.

Once released it looks like the cable can then be drawn back and out of the LHS.....???

Any ideas please!!!
Many thanks

Hi Rob

No luck with the impact driver either - T40 isn't the best ever design!

Agree with Slappy they are a 'mare to bleed:
Also
Try using a syringe and tube to reverse bleed - ie attach the tube to the nipple (no air in syringe?), open and bleed back
OR
Detach the slave cylinder/caliper and hold it above the master cylinder and bleed as normal - sometime air gets trapped on the high point of the circuit above the slave

Needed to change the rear disc on the Gen 2 FZ1 and had been warned that it can be difficult to get the bolts undone.....

So soaked the threads in Plus Gas, froze the bolts (instead of warming the hub) to shrink them down, tapped them with large diameter pin punch to upset them and then tried to undo them...

2 undid ok, 2 T40 heads snapped off flush in the bolt heads and couldn't be removed, the other snapped off but did come out. What to do as the T40 heads are too hard to drill?

So welded M16 nuts to the bold heads and they undid fine with no damage to the hub (serious thermal shock helped). Not sure what else I could have done - may also work for the front discs as I've heard that the whole wheel gets thrown away if they can't get the bolts out.

The design of the bolt heads is wrong - the ratio of the T40 diameter to the bolt diameter means if the bolt is at all seized it's then very likely the T40 will fail - I used reasonably quality T40 heads...

Check the disc isn't bent- if so the pistons will be in one position on the caliper and then have to move to another to take up the distortion
