Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / winter fork service.
« on: 18 January 2015, 07:07:25 PM »
Never been happy with standard forks and I've even got R1 forks on  a 53 plate  Fazer, 9.5 springs  maybe a bit harsh for me. Running that with fork Extender's to 782mm length .
Had brought some years back a spare pair of forks off flea bay so I dug um outta storage last week and what do u know, buggered adjusters. Darn it
So  after a swap about and a re oil of 440ml good stuff I took it out forra test this morning and has tony the tiger used to say" it's ggggggreat."
Bike forks set at 780mm 440 ml of 10 w oil , comp 10 from H, rebound set on 4 from H . ride height is 25/32.
Rear has modified ohlins unit from a gpx 750
With ride height set on 7/28.
Gotta say I can't wait for warmer weather to do some side by side tests.
PS these forks on a 04 Fazer.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / new chain
« on: 10 April 2013, 10:58:43 PM »
Well expect i could get more mileage outta me chain of 14 thou' but with an over 50's lads trip to europe looming up ive decided its gotta go.
after trawling the net i found that did's ZVM530 came out top trumps with10,408 ft/lb and wear resistance of 4,000out classing RK's XSO 530 (9,200 FT/LB).
ON price i found Hunters motorcycles of newcastle good (£106 posted), they also do the did vx530 with talon rear at £96 posted.
I got a std front sprocket and a 43 tooth supersprox from webbs all waiting to be fitted, and i am already running a 43 yam one so i happy with it.
