Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Sigma Stage 3 Carb Tuning Kit
« on: 22 February 2018, 10:28:43 PM »
Hi Peeps 

I know from experience what the Ivans (Full Monty Kit) does for the might 1000

Curious if anyone has any experience of the Sigma Carb kits from the USA as advertised on ebay, ad claims to sort all the fueling issues that the Ivans kit does, may be a clone of the Ivans kits? never dealt with the Sigma brand before, price works out quite a bit cheaper than the Ivans Kits that are available from (SG Motorsport) .
The only issue is the import tax may kill the deal as it's not stated in the ebay ad, not bought much from the USA before, somehow managed to swerve the import duty on both occasions.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Gen 1 1000 Headlamp faults
« on: 30 April 2017, 09:47:58 AM »
Hi Peeps
I'm new to Fazers.

Having some electrical gremlins.
Just unpicked a right rats nest of Meta alarm loom bodging.
Alarm had failed before I got the bike, alarm multi-plug had the usual bypass bridging wire (poorly done).
Anyway alarm looms out, both of the alarm multi-plug connectors in the bikes loom under seat have been put back & bridged as per factory spec, bikes a runner.

For some reason I've lost live feed to dip/main beam & dash clocks illumination?.
Could just be a coincidence that some other fault is present, but lights worked prior to removing alarm loom.

Struggling to find what the unused 3pin connector is for next to alarm multi-plug connectors in bikes loom?.
Tested, I have 2 earths & a switched live
Is it for accessories
Any ideas pls?
I suspect ignition switch is faulty? Yet to confirm.
I'm just on with working thru loom.
Headlamp relays test correct as per manual.
Everything works except dip/main & dash clocks illumination.

Finding corroded pins in multi-plugs above rocker cover, removing male/female pins to clean.
Is this a known headlamp fault based on the issues I'm having?
Any helpful ideas are very much appreciated.

Big hello to all current members.

Has the bike a wk, a[size=78%]lready started stripping to tidy a few areas up.[/size]
Surprising what you inherit from previous ownership.
Just had to plastic weld the fairing infill panels up, some rough arse has had a go but made a pigs ear of it.
My body shop yrs have paid off, panels repaired & in primer.
Just gorra unpick old alarm loom, new tyres on this wk, tax end of mth then I can play with suspension setup, looks like an R6 shock is on the cards asap, rides ok, front end is terrible tho, new tyres will help, then out with the tools.

Just bought the Fazer 1000 & it's on standard bars, I'm not loving the shape, bit keen on the old wrists.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / R6 shock upgrade
« on: 22 April 2017, 04:41:37 PM »
Hi Peeps.

Not long since joined FOCU.
Some interesting reading on here.
Upgraded from a very modified & tuned Kawy ZRX 1136R.

In it's place is a Silver 53 plate bog standard Fazer 1000.
Way better bike IMHO.

My question is, which year R6 shock works best on a Fazer 1000 & what's the correct length of the dog bones required? As I've heard R6 shocks are a tad shorter, so I assume different length dog bones will be required to bring ride height back to original.
I may fabricate my own? but if anyone can recommend a supplier I'll try that option if the price is right.

Thanks in advance, any info is mucho appreciated..
