FZS600 Fazer / R1 swingarm
« on: 23 July 2013, 11:57:43 AM »
Just wondering about an R1 swinger and rear wheel to match the R1 front end on the bike, and to allow 180 tyre goodness.

Are these a straight fit? i've seen one or two pictures with them fitted but not much info around.


FZS600 Fazer / Nikko G-pack
« on: 23 July 2013, 02:00:04 AM »
just enquiring if anyone has one of these installed, Would like to remove that pesky limit on the first gear.[size=78%] [/size][/size]and also see if it removes the "run like crap mode" when removing the speedo drive as i have done. (although it is barley noticeable)Problem is.. i have removed the speedo drive and most of the pictures i have seen on the net show the deice going in between the drive and the loom, but others go between the ecu and the loom, which one is used for the fazer?Thanks,[size=78%]

FZS600 Fazer / Thunderace wheel
« on: 02 July 2013, 10:53:19 PM »
Whats involved with Swapping the rear wheel out for a Thunderace one? I know it has been done and somewhere i read whats involved but as i cane to buy a wheel i cannot fine the info anywhere.

Im guessing the bearings are the only issue so far.

Fazer 20x47x14

yzf 28x52x12

So.. I would need 20x52x14/12??, right? This is the the fazer spindle.

FZS600 Fazer / Usd Conversion
« on: 09 June 2013, 08:23:04 PM »
Hi guys, Just showing off my latest project.

Its goign to be a Fazer with a round lamp and R1 forks. Got some parts today.

Unfortunately, i Don't think the actual front end swap will be until next month. I need more parts and the wheel need either coating or painting.

Here is how the bike stands now.

The round lamp is only temporary, Its the wrong beam pattern, therefore wont pass the MOT. So when i do the swap to usd, i'll be buying a bandit lamp.
I bolted the Speedo also to the lamp bowl, Temporary again, i'm buying the proper bracket for it.

The speedo is a KOSO xr-sr-n, The fazer speedo would not work with the R1 front end, as the wheel doesn't have a drive, This speedo takes the reading from small magnets inside the disc bolts. (Either front or back, even the sprocket)

It has a rev counter, But it's in number format and doesn't seem as 'instant' as the actual dial.

The clocks are great, As long as you have a wiring diagram to hand for the bike. A bonus too is that they come with a variable water temp sensor to replace the switch type in the water system.

Will update as more stuff happens.


FZS600 Fazer / Clutch knock
« on: 06 June 2013, 01:57:04 AM »
Hi guys, Just wondering if the knocking from my clutch is normal. When riding around and come to a halt, I take it out of gear and release the clutch and it gives a knocking noise until i pull the clutch back in.

When first firing up (stationary), i find the noise will only come when i clutch-in, select 1st, Back to neutral then release the clutch again.  :\ 

I have just swapped the engine, the new one is a 14k minter that has no rattles or knocks (apart from this), The old engine did it too, but i cant make my mind up if this new engine is worse?

Can't think of anything other than the release bearing in my head. Or are these bikes just like this?


FZS600 Fazer / R1 Wheels
« on: 31 May 2013, 11:37:18 PM »
Wondering if anyone had any experience with fitting other wheels to the Fzs. I am doing an R1 Usd font end conversion (waiting for the forks to be delivered), so the front is no problem.
I was going to fit a thunderace rear wheel for the 180 tire option, But would an R1 rear wheel fit/line up? (with the right bearing for the spindle ect) 98 boxeye and '98 r1 wheel.

The reason  ask, instead of just doing the thunderace wheel is. I don't have the R1 front wheel yet, and most decent ones on ebay are in pairs.


EDIT: Anybody know if the disc's of the Fazer front wheel will fit the R1 rim?

FZS600 Fazer / Stick coil mod
« on: 26 May 2013, 01:08:53 AM »
For anyone wanting to get rid of crusty old HT leads or Knackered coils, This is for you  :)

Did this mod today. Nothing in particular wrong with my coils, the HT's were just stiff, Cracked and oxidised at the end.
Simple enough, Coils used are 636r ninja (unsure on the year).

Standard coils read 2.5ohm's (YMMV)
636 read 1.3ohm's (Will obviously double up to 2.6ohm's in a pair)

Very simple Simple loom, Just 2 pairs wired up in series, Drew up a little diagram.


Hope this helps.

All the best,

Hi guy, New to the forum with a '98 Fzs 'Fazer', Hehe, i should probably start to use a new name. Had the bike for about 2 month now, and Already got ideas on modifying it!  8)

Just swapped the engine as the studs had broken off mine. (overkill, but it was a rattly old thing anyway, New one is lurvverly and tight.)

Old left, new right.

Also, Done a stick Coil mod.. Will post this in its own thread soon.

Not sure if it has been done yet, but In the near future i plan on converting to an R1 front end  ;)

All the best,
