Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Front sprocket nut question
« on: 12 May 2015, 07:34:41 PM »
Did the FZS1000's ever suffer from front sprocket nut problems like the 600's did?
The reason I ask is due to a chain snappage I'm changing the full set and there doesn't seem to be that much thread in the nut (width wise) and it wasn't as tight as I was expecting, having a 600 before it made me question it.
Can anyone tell me what torque it should be done up to?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Tax disk
« on: 01 October 2014, 05:35:13 PM »
Foccing typical! first day of no tax disk being issued and my tax disk holder decides to bale out and disappear into the ether, I doubt the powers that be will be interested in issueing a replacement as it only has this month to run anyway.
I guess failiure to display is no longer an offence anyway...... :lol

« on: 09 March 2014, 06:03:27 PM »
My 600 has finally made it's way through a minefield of laziness and apathy to the pages of gumtree here even washed the flies off it!
mot and tax till september 2014, runs and rides well, stainless downpipes with delkevic link pipe and can in stainless fitted (have original included), hugger and bellypan fitted, k&n air and oil filter, nearly new michelin pilots on both ends.
UK model code so no grey import insurance issues, datatagged, hpi clear, viewable in st.neots cambs.
Some minor scrapes to right hand side engine case from previous owner so I don't know the story of where they come from, headlight mod done so doesn't look squinty at night with one light out, usual amout of minor blemishes for it's age.
FZS 1000 forces sale as could do with the garage space.
Ride away fun!
Open to serious offers.
Despite rumours spread by other forum members black is definately a faster colour than blue, you poor deluded fools!  :)

For Sale & Wanted / Wanted XT600 rack
« on: 26 December 2013, 11:46:56 AM »
Not fazer but worth a pop, does anyone have a rack for an XT600E kicking around in their shed that needs a new home? Doesn't need to be pretty or even that straight, but preferably cheap.
Just need something to adapt for carrying a small chainsaw for firewood hunting.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Touch up paint for frame
« on: 24 October 2013, 07:35:24 PM »
Has anyone found a good touch up paint for the frame? I have a few rust spots that I'd like to tidy up but assume it's not as easy as bodywork touch up paint, don't want to do a full strip and re-coat.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Water pipe No1.
« on: 19 October 2013, 01:33:44 PM »
On a fzs1000 2003 whats it like to change water pipe No1. (the one at the front behind the down pipes)? It looks like it goes through the crankcase to the water pump, are there any o rings that fall out making it a nightmare to get back in?
Mines rotten and needs replacing but don't know if I can be arsed yet, if it's a simple pull it out and replace I'll go for it while I've got the rad off.
Anyone got a good one going cheap?

FZS600 Fazer / On the scrounge!
« on: 07 January 2012, 11:02:19 AM »
Has anyone got a set of knackered clocks looking for a home? I'm after a set with the lcd clock built in(mk2?) to see if they can be easily pulled apart and the lcd hacked into, accident damaged is no problem as they won't be getting used other than experimental purposes.
I'm thinking along the lines of built in gear indicator and engine temp(maybe also oil temp) using a bit extra electronics but don't know how much room is inside the unit, don't want to destroy the good one I have just to try the theory, probably won't work so don't want to pay good money either hence the accident damaged approach.

Anyone have one fitted? Do they make much difference to buffeting and wind noise? Do they look ok?

Ok who fancies making a donation towards me looking like a complete tw*t throughout november!(why should november be any different I hear you say)
And get yer money out for a good cause, it's all about raising awareness to blokes with lumpy bits where they shouldn't have lumpy bits.
Thanks in advance to anyone dipping in their pockets, and a boo-hiss to those not (so ner!)

For some cracking new rock music check out for their new album 'Liberty' They are an independant band with sod all money for publicity and absolutely foccing great, if you buy the tee shirt as well you'll be helping oldmotherfoccer's holiday fund as well.
You just have to love a pub band that does their own stuff and doesn't do mustang sally! (they don't do westlife either)
I've known them all for a long time now and they are lovely people well deserving of support, while you are at it look up the track remebrance day they did a few years ago for help the heroes and feel guilty enough to buy a poppy...
Come on you miserable foccers get yer money out!

I've just been browsing ebay looking at stainless exhausts and come across motad and sandy bike spares downpipes, does anyone have experience as to which are better quality?
Also like the look of the delkevic 350mm stubby tailpipe, how well do they fit and what quality?
I don't suppose the chemical metal I've just blobbed in the collector will stay there long so I guess I will have to spend some cash, must admit I prefer the idea of it staying in the uk than going to china or similar.
All opinions/experience appreciated.
I was also after a gear position indicator but have had no response from ledgear, have they gone bust? I've since bought a second hand neutral switch and added extra contacts for the gears but still waiting on the display bit turning up to try it out.
