Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Goodbye all you Foccers
« on: 06 April 2014, 03:18:43 PM »
Have sold my Fazer 1000  :(   and bought a KTM RC8R  :)   , so it's good bye from me

Thanks to all who've helped/hindered me during my time as a Foccer.

My 2008 Fazer 1000 now for sale at Mounters KTM in Pontypridd for £3795 - a bargain for someone. (Akra pipe, Nitron shock, Rossi paint) Hoping it goes to a good home!

Good luck all

Ride safe

Offering for sale my 2008 Fazer 1000

27,000 miles, good condition. 6months tax + 12 months MOT

Service history from Mounts Motorcycles

Valentino Rossi Laguna Seca 2005 paint job

Official Yamaha fairing side panels, Akrapovic can, K+N filter, Nitron Sports shock, tail tidy and, if it fits your head, matching helmet. New chain + sprockets 2000 miles ago and new Michelin tyres around 1500 miles ago.

I have had this bike from new and it has taken me all over this country, France, Spain and Holland without ever missing a beat, but after 5 years I am fancying a change (have my eye on a KTM RC8  :eek  )

Located approx 12 miles west of Swansea, 1 mile off the M4, message me if you would like to view / test it.

All sensible offers considered, but please note that I know what it's worth, am NOT desperate to sell it and am not going to give it to you!!

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Gen 2 ABS Brakepad change
« on: 05 May 2013, 10:37:38 PM »
Never changed the front brake pads on an ABS bike (or car) before (2008 Fazer 1000)

Is there anything special I need to know or is it just as easy as non ABS?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Flat Battery - ABS warning light on
« on: 10 April 2013, 09:04:10 AM »
After only riding my 2008 FZ1 a couple of times over the winter, I went to start it after having new tyres fitted and found the battery flat.   :'(
After bump starting it for the ride home I found the red ABS warning light had come on and stayed on until I switched the motor off at home.   :eek
Will be replacing the battery today and am wondering wether the ABS light came on as a result of a not fully charged battery or wether there actually is a fault with the ABS.   :(
Anyone got any idea please?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Naked electricals inside fuel tank?
« on: 02 November 2011, 01:02:56 PM »
Yo Bros
I have just finished repraying my 2008 Fazer 1000, during the course of which I removed the fuel pump/fuel gauge sender from the bottom of the fuel tank.
Whilst re-assembling the same I noticed that there are bare electrical connections to the pump/gauge sender, which, when the tank is filled with petrol, will be below the top level of the petrol (worst case) or above the fuel level in a volume full of fuel vapour.
Can anyone re-assure me that this is how they are supposed to be, or have I lost some part/cover during the respray process?
