Fazer8 / FZ8 / Leaving the fold.....
« on: 15 July 2018, 12:58:34 PM »
well, it's come to that unfortunate time that I need to sell my Fazer 8
For me it has been a truly exceptional bike over the past 5 years, but the wife has never been 100% comfy on it, and if we want to do more miles, we need a different bike.
Gone for a Versys 1000 GT, which is a very exceptional, but totally different bike to the Fazer, but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
Cheers all  :thumbup

Fazer8 / FZ8 / Bar Risers
« on: 16 March 2017, 08:44:34 PM »
Right I'm on it now, weathers improving and I've some long ride outs planned so I need to get myself some handle bar risers.

If any one has a decent set lying about they don't need/want then give me a knock.

Looking for a set of 30mm risers for a 2013 Fazer 8, if any one has a set lying about?



Fazer8 / FZ8 / Sore wrists (and a possible slapped arse)
« on: 18 May 2016, 08:13:24 PM »
So, did 250 miles the other day around North Yorkshire moors (and only got one speeding ticket - 69 in a 60, coming off a roundabout onto a short dual carriageway and wanted to get past line of traffic for a clear road but didn't see van until last second - feels like entrapment to me? but I digress) First proper time out this year but by god did my wrists feel it. (the slapped arse was the speeding ticket btw - received it within 3 days - still not sure who was riding the bike at the time???)

Really must look properly into getting some bar risers (or strengthen my core muscles?)

General / Foccer Stickers

just seen this  and wondered (as you do some times) are there any foc-u/foccer stickers out there?

General / Tyre wear
« on: 02 September 2015, 08:18:56 AM »
ok, so I've never had a bike before that has managed 800 miles never mind 8000, and so I've never had a set of tyres from new that have racked up that amount of miles.

My Fazer 8 has the original BT21s fitted, and whilst the rear tyre seems to be wearing pretty much evenly and as I'd expect, the front tyre is kind off 'egg' shaped with the right side massively worn compared to the left side. If I lived in Birmingham (I don't) I'd say it was down to using roundabouts all day (I don't) Infact strangely enough I prefer left hand bends to right (is this the issue?)

That aside - what's the best option for replacements? Has the rear still got enough life left to replace just the front and if soshould I stick to the originals, or mix, or replace the entire set. The rear (tyre) still feels reasonable on corners, and whilst I do occasionally use the motorway, the majority of my rides are on As and Bs.

Cheers guys

For some reason my wrists seem to hurting more this year when riding my 2013 Fazer 8, so was thinking that maybe some bar risers may help.

Has any one tried these and got some feed back?

There also seems to be varying sizes/heights, how high can you go without interfering with existing cabling etc?

All feedback appreciated.

General / Meet Locations
« on: 12 March 2015, 07:11:29 PM »
Is there a list and/or map on here that shows all the local and national meeting places/bike cafes?

The only two I'm aware of in my area are Squires and Fridaythorpe but would love to know what's further afield to plan a ride out to, use as pit stops. Must be some hidden gems out there?

Perhaps a map could be put up like with the members one?

So I've had my Fazer 8 for literally just over 1 year, from new, it had its 6000 mile service on time, 3 days ago, ridden in to work today a good 50 miles the fun route. Got to it to go home and ............................ nothing, not a dicky bird! Oh and yam assist has just run out as well!

any thoughts? Ive got an hour to kill!

dont think I left parking lights on but cant be sure. I kinx of hope it is that so at least it'd be my fault. Would that drain the  attery over 9 hrs?

General / What exhaust fits a Fazer 8
« on: 14 April 2014, 07:32:54 PM »
Now I don't know much about this kind of thing so here we are.

I'm after an aftermarket can for my 2012 Fazer 8, and trying to keep it local (well at least in the UK) but some of the exhausts I like, the companies don't have a fit for a Fazer/FZ8.

I don't think the can itself makes a lot of difference (or am I wrong) but it seems to be the link pipe that makes a difference? I spoke to one company (for the life of me I can't remember who?) who said the can itself doesn't really matter?

So, would either a can and/or a link pipe for a FZ1 fit a fazer/FZ8, is there that much difference in engine size/mapping etc? :wall


Events, Meets, Ride outs etc / Squires Sunday 13th April
« on: 09 April 2014, 06:39:33 PM »
well going to try it again, didn't quite happen as planned last time

Any one meeting up at Squires this weekend with a possibility of fish and chips at the half way point? :sun

General / FZ1 - FZ8 link pipe
« on: 09 April 2014, 12:31:28 PM »
Hi all,

Would any one know if a FZ1 link pipe (2006 onwards) would fit a Fazer8 (2012) for a slip on can?
As far as I can tell the bikes are pretty similar?


Fazer8 / FZ8 / Fazer/FZ 8 History
« on: 08 April 2014, 08:07:40 PM »
more out of curiosity really and to raise our postings, getting bored of not seeing new posts on our thread :lol :

What is the FZ and Fazer 8 based on, what parts does it share, is it virtually the same bike as the FZ1?

General / Pasting Pictures
« on: 16 March 2014, 08:14:39 PM »
I know I've asked this before but I can't find the thread but..... why is it so difficult to put photos on here. Whilst not drawing parallels, on the YOC I can just upload from my laptop with no bother at all. I seem to recall from previous questions that I have to have a remote access site or something weird sounding?   :useless :wall
