FZS600 Fazer / Fork breather?
« on: 01 July 2019, 01:00:54 PM »
Hi folks, not been on here for ages but have now the need to ask a question of the great and wise.  Is there a breather hole anywhere on the front forks?  I ask because I've got a leaking right hand fork leg but not when being ridden, only when it gets hot.  I keep it in a sort of mini-conservatory so it gets quite warm in there and after a couple of days of sunshine I found this

That's fork oil and it's dribbled down the fork leg, over the caliper, pads and disc and dropped onto the wheel.  It's only the RH leg and has only appeared since we got hot weather.  So is there a breather somewhere that has got blocked so as the temperature goes up, the pressure in the leg increases and is pushing the oil out past the seal rather than through a breather?

FZS600 Fazer / Thanks Freck
« on: 19 February 2017, 11:02:27 PM »
Decided to get the Fazer out of hibernation yesterday so lifted the cover that has been keeping it warm and dry over winter only to find a spider had made a nest in there and the whole thing was covered in cobwebs.  Tried to start it and all I got was a couple of turns on the starter then nothing.  Decided that as I'd got to dismantle half of it to clean it I'd do something I'd been meaning to do for about the last 4 years, remove the poxy Datatool Evo alarm which I figured was almost certainly the reason for the non-start.  Other than being a pain with constantly setting itself it would flatten the battery if the bike was left for more than a couple of days so I'd been removing the fuse for it whenever the bike was going to be left for more than a few hours.  Traced some of the wiring and found the back to back connectors but they had to be cut off as whoever had fitted it had Superglued them together.  Then got stuck as I'd got a few more wires going to it that I couldn't trace.  had to get my password reset on here as it's been quite a while since I was last here but the foc-u search did the business with this thread http://foc-u.co.uk/index.php/topic,17530.msg203127.html#msg203127.  Thanks Freck, with the installation document I was able to restore it to a running state and bin a big plastic box and a load of spurious wiring.  I also found that they actually tell you to Superglue the connectors together!  It's now cleaner than it's ever been since I've owned it.  Just a shame that I spent all of yesterday afternoon and this morning cleaning it and putting it back together that I only had time for a quick run out on it this afternoon to convince myself I'd not forgotten how to ride it.  Hopefully, I'll get a bit more time to actually use it now.

General / How?
« on: 06 December 2011, 10:54:29 AM »
Just got back from a couple of days in the south of France and while there I heard a news story on Riveria Radio, an English speaking radio station, that I though worth sharing.   What I'd like to know is how?

General / I'm back, but a newbie????
« on: 06 November 2011, 07:51:29 PM »
After a few months with loads of other stuff going on, I got the bike out this weekend and then decided to see what was going on here.  Only to find it's not on Yuku any more and my old login didn't work so registered again.  Now, I'm a newbie, a CBT Wobbler with no posts to my name.  I initially thought it was the same for everyone but if that's the case, some of you have been posting near continually!

Can I get my post count and title back or am I starting from scratch again?
