Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / R1 forks torque settings
« on: 02 October 2017, 08:10:53 PM »
Recently bought my thou that has got r1 forks already fitted. I want to take them off to get parts powder coated and was wondering what torque settings would I use when reassembling?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Fazer making a noise
« on: 26 August 2017, 02:50:00 PM »
Just bought a Fazer thou a few days ago and Rosen it home 200 miles no problems and was great. Problem now is it has developed a noise today when I started it, I had taken off the downpipes to clean and serviced the exup then started it and I can hear this ticking noise, is it the cam chain? Here's a video of the noise

General / Broken exhaust flanges
« on: 02 May 2017, 09:13:33 AM »
I bought a used set of s/s downpipes for my fzs600 and now noticied that the flanges have had welds put in previously and now have further cracks in them from being overtightened, unfortunately one has already snapped off.
Anyone know of any solution? can it be welded?
I've tried finding flanges in 2 parts that can be joined but no luck for the size and can't find a company to make any yet.

General / Plastidip
« on: 12 April 2017, 03:56:19 PM »
I've seen some plastidip spray on eBay and was wondering if anyone has any experience of using them? I was thinking of using it on my forks and swing arm.

General / Old coins
« on: 02 September 2015, 03:45:56 PM »
Just wondering if anyone hear would know what I can do with old coins (shillings, 2 shillings, six pences). Was sorting out my grandfathers house and have found hundreds of these coins. Can they be exchanged?

FZS600 Fazer / Front sprocket nut
« on: 03 July 2015, 07:56:34 PM »
I haven't upgraded my nut to the 12 mm yet as I need to collect it from my yam dealer, I took the cover off today to inspect it as I'm planning on a long ride tomorrow and noticed there was some play in the nut, I've linked a video of it.
Is this normal or is it best to change the nut right away and not ride it??

For Sale & Wanted / Fzs600 Viper Exhaust & Link pipe
« on: 29 June 2015, 11:40:39 AM »
Selling my viper exhaust as I've got a new one. It has quite a few marks and scratches on, the worst are hidden by the strap. Comes with link pipe and baffle, although I don't have the bolt for the baffle (I never used it). Also the strap I have doesn't quite fit properly but does the job.
Would really prefer someone to collect from me, near swansea South Wales.
Please see pics re condition, can send more if wanted.

General / TV series, what are you watching?
« on: 25 April 2014, 12:12:48 PM »

FZS600 Fazer / Fork covers
« on: 09 February 2014, 06:18:42 PM »
I've thought about having upside down forks like a few people have started to do for their bikes on here but as I am mainly thinking of it for cosmetic reasons I thought maybe some covers would be a cheaper option. About 2 years ago I saw a streetfightered fazer sell on eBay that had it done and it said it was a custom job, I've attached the pic of the bike, does anyone know who it was or how you would make them? Also what the other bits on the bike are, cos i think it looks awesome.

General / Peugeot gearbox replacement
« on: 06 November 2013, 11:31:12 AM »
Just wondering if anyone here can help. Gearbox on my 307 1.6 petrol sounds like its on its last legs. Been searching the internet for a while for any kind of gearbox replacement guides. Anyone here done one of these? Or know of any special tool that's required. Don't wana buy a box and start it to then not be able to do it. Thanks

General / Car mot (brakes)
« on: 01 April 2013, 10:23:36 PM »
I had my car mot about 4 weeks ago and have since done approx 500 miles. It started making a hell of a noise when braking so thought I'd have a look and found that the pads on front were all completely work out and one side had been making a nice big groove into the discs. Shouldn't this have been picked up during the mot? It had no advisories.


For Sale & Wanted / Wanted: aftermarket exhaust fzs600
« on: 15 March 2013, 08:32:32 PM »
As the title says, before I decide to go spending 120+ on a new exhaust I thought I would see if anyone here had one lying around that they would be willing to sell as I don't really want to spend that much. It would need to be road legal, preferably with removable baffle and with link pipe.  Thanks

FZS600 Fazer / Downpipes Refurb
« on: 13 March 2013, 12:35:53 PM »
Hi guys, gonna be refurbing my original downpipes in the next couple of weeks as they have started to go rusty. The thing is i know what to do and what paint to get as it has been covered many times before however i cant find anything to say how much paint is needed?  is one can of 500ml spray paint enough or should i buy 2.  The reason i ask is that it is a lot cheaper online and i dont want to buy 1 online then be stuck and have to go out and buy another more expensive one in a local shop.  Thanks

General / Caught by a camera
« on: 31 January 2013, 08:18:03 PM »
Before Christmas I sped through a speed camera and got caught (stationary camera that flashed) funnily enough it was in the cage while I wasn't paying attention, not on the mighty fazer which I am probably more likely to speed on. As I've never been flashed before I was wondering if people know how long it usually takes to receive the fine/points in the post as I've heard nothing yet.

General / LED wiring questions
« on: 29 October 2012, 10:40:01 AM »

I was wondering if someone here could help me out. I need to wire 4 leds to run off a normal household battery (eg 9v rectangle one, or something like that) with an on/off switch and as i have never really done something like this before i thought id get some advice so i do it right.  Ive done a quick diagram to show what i was thinking but i have a few questions:
What size/voltage battery?
What gauge wire?
What resistors?
Also can i use any switch? The one i like is an on/off 12v toggle switch

Just wanted to add that the LEDs spec is: Forward voltage 3.2 - 3.6  Forward current 20 - 30


General / Employment Law - company split
« on: 14 September 2012, 09:49:18 AM »
I've been looking for information about this and cant find much on the web so decided to try and see if any of you guys know anything about it. 

I currently work at a GP surgery group which is made up of 2 surgeries. The GP's don't get along and have now decided they are going to split the group up so it will become 2 separate surgeries.  Now as they are being very secretive about what is happening i was hoping someone could help me to understand where i stand, as i know they will both be wanting me to work for them.  Will my pay be frozen? can they change my job? can i negotiate with both to get the best deal for me before deciding where to go?

any advice from a bunch of foccers will be much appreciated. :)

FZS600 Fazer / Grab handles
« on: 22 June 2012, 09:56:18 PM »
Just wondering if any other grab handles fit on the fazer instead of the standard one that goes all the way around? Would like individual sporty looking handles that aren't joined.

General / Mod 1 test
« on: 13 April 2012, 01:21:59 PM »
On Monday I will finally be doing my mod1 test and if all goes well mod2 on Friday. Just wondering if anyone has any advice? I've got training on Sunday but any extra advice would be much appreciated

Introduction / Hello from sunny south wales
« on: 02 March 2012, 11:24:10 AM »
Hopefully I will soon pass my DAS and will then be able to use my 2003 fzs600 that I recently acquired. Got my theory booked for next week then DAS ASAP. I've been a 125 rider for since 17 (now 27) so ive done a few cbt's, so hopefully shouldn't find the big test to bad.

One question I have is I saw a video on YouTube about changing the dash light colour but since I watched it have been unable to find again and was wondering if someone could tell me what bulbs are needed or a link to the video? Thanks
