Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Anyone have a spare Gen 1 front wheel for sale?
« on: 17 February 2019, 04:15:39 PM »
Hi people, I’m looking for a front wheel for my 03 Fazer thou. I was unfortunate enough to hit a massive pothole (more like a crater) on my way home from work yesterday and I’ve bent the front wheel rim and torn the tyre. I’ve spoken to the Highways Agency who said that “if I qualify” for a claim, they have 15 days to respond. Then they said I have to pay out for the parts which I then claim back from them afterwards. So I need a wheel for the short term, then I’m gonna go for a brand new one from Yamaha at £720, plus bearings, plus a tyre. I’ve attached pics of the pothole and my wheel. If anyone’s travelling on the A2 from London and comes off at Junction 1 for Rochester & Strood then be careful, I drove past in the car yesterday to get pics, I can’t believe how big & deep it actually is. If anyone has a wheel thats straight (not bothered about bearings, I’ll re use mine short term) and I can buy please let me know, I’m in Rainham Kent, so can collect if fairly local as I’d imagine postage would be horrendous for something that size & weight!

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Oil leak from between casings
« on: 04 September 2018, 02:21:42 PM »
Hi all, I was cleaning behind the headers earlier (Gen 1) and spotted what looks like oil that has been misting out from between where the 2 crankcase halves are joined horizontally with the grey sealer. Was hoping it might be coolant but it definitely seems like oil. Anyone else had something similar? Looks like it could be a pig of a job to fix.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Brown gunk leaking from carb
« on: 03 June 2017, 06:27:24 PM »
This is strange. Just got back from the Isle of Man, bike not missed a beat once. Pulled over for a break and after about 10 mins I noticed a brown oily petrol mix seeping out of carb no2 running down onto the generator cover. I rode another 300 odd miles since then, turning the fuel off every time I stopped (which was annoying). I've just taken the carbs off and found the float bowl rubber gasket split on no2 carb but, carbs are clean inside! So what was the brown stuff?? It felt like oil, so now confused!!

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Bar end mirrors?
« on: 28 September 2016, 01:19:54 PM »
Do many of you have or ever had bar end mirrors on the Gen 1? Are they any good? Can you see more than the standard ones which seem to show about 30-40% of elbow?
Just wondering if there's any advantage to having them over standard as some of them actually look quite smart.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Chain length for 15/47 tooth sprockets
« on: 25 May 2016, 10:32:12 PM »
Does anyone know if I can use the stock length chain if I change my sprockets to 15 front & 47 rear?

Has anyone used brighter bulbs for the indicator warning lights on the dash? If so what wattage can you use? I find them quite hard to see especially on a bright day and have left the indicators on a couple of times without realising.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Right hand mirror vibration
« on: 02 May 2016, 09:33:23 PM »
Has anyone suffered from vibes through the mirrors on the gen 1? Just wondered if there are any quick fixes, I've checked and tightened all the mounting bolts but the right hand mirror vibrates and it's impossible to see anything clearly in it above 30mph!

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / I did the R6 shock mod yesterday
« on: 15 April 2016, 07:50:00 AM »
Thanks to Luke for his advice and supplying the shock and dog bones. Fitted the shock yesterday, took about half an hour, when I told the wife what I was going to do she thought I'd be in the garage for hours! I set the front forks to standard settings then dropped the yokes down 10mm as per Luke's recommend settings. Well that has definitely changed the way the bike handles, noticeable straight away from accelerating, there's no sag or squatting so it feels great coming out of corners. I may just need a small tweak on the rear compression damping as I did get a bit of bounce as I was accelerating hard down a fairly uneven country lane, but other than that the bike is where I want it to be. A mod well worth doing, you can really get hold of the bike and throw it around much more easily than before, it feels lighter and more nimble in my opinion. Ivan's kit being fitted by Mike at the end of the month, what more could you want from a bike? :)

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Is this sad?
« on: 24 February 2016, 08:28:16 PM »
This is my 2nd Fazer thou, and I just love them. The way they look, feel and go. So much so that I sat in my garage today just looking at my bike, after another blinding ride deciding what mod to do or not do next, for nearly 20 mins! Is that sad? I think it's great that a 13 year old bike can still look the nuts and even give the more modern stuff being churned out today a run for their money.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Gen 1 AIS Removal question
« on: 11 February 2016, 03:17:04 PM »
I've been looking at the various ways people have gone about the complete AIS removal process, and I have all the plastic bungs/plugs for the hoses & air box etc. I bought the removal kit from TPO parts, but when it comes to the outlets above the headers, these need to be completely removed from the head and the plugs supplied pushed down inside the holes, which means once they are in it is non reversible. The Ivan's kit comes with a 5/16-24 tap and bolts. The metric equivalent to that is M8 x 1.25 thread. So at last my question is, has anyone done this using an M8 tap and put M8 capscrews in, instead of 5/16-24?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Possible antifreeze leak?
« on: 22 January 2016, 02:53:31 PM »
i was just stripping my exup valve down and copper slipping it when I noticed a small drip of green antifreeze under the generator cover on the left hand side of my he engine. I've checked all the hoses, the level in the reservoir was just above minimum. Am I right in thinking there should only be oil in the left hand cover? I looked over the whole engine but cannot see any sign of a leak? It's a 2003 fazer 1000 with only 6500 miles on the clock.

Hi all does anyone have a Givi Rack with mounting brackets & 46 Litre Top Box for sale for the Gen 1 Fazer 1000?
Can collect if in South East area.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Depreciation
« on: 27 November 2012, 12:34:19 PM »
I was and thats a big WAS toying with the idea of getting an adventure bike until I started looking to see what my bike is worth.I couldn't believe how much it has depreciated in less than a year! In march this year I bought my brand new FZ1-N which was listed in the showroom at £9999.00 The dealer came down to £9000 and we settled on a deal in which I part ex'd my 600 Fazer. If I wanted to sell the FZ1 privately according to Parkers Guide, I'm looking at £6300! And a dealer wasnt prepared to go much over £5,000! Thats an insult. Admittedly that was an 'over the phone book price' but even so, Ive only done 3300 miles and she's mint! Ive Just seen brand new FZ1-N's on ebay from Yamaha dealers at £7495. Gutted, I think I'll be hanging on to it for a good few years now. :)
