FZS600 Fazer / Scrambler build
« on: 08 April 2018, 09:52:08 AM »

I’ve decided to do something with my 2001 fazer. Just to keep me busy, give me a headache, and fill my brains with thoughts that I don’t have time for.  

I’ve always liked the look of cafe racers, scramblers, Rat, and brat bikes. So, the plan is to build something lovely looking. I’m not much of a speed guy, I prefer to cruise.

I know a couple of guys on here have built scramblers (,23400.0.html) so I’d really like to chat about the process with then. I’m looking to put Continental TKC80’s, stick air pods on, scrambler seat, take off the front, etc.
This is something I’m going for...

So the first question I’ve got is, what replacement for the dials have people done?

FZS600 Fazer / My Rat Fighter
« on: 26 November 2017, 02:20:39 PM »
Thought I’d start a thread for my fazer modification. 

I’ve ridden my silver fazer around for a year and have decided to doing something with it. I want to shorten the seat, so it’s a single seat. Removing the rear pegs. Change the front to twin headlights with a small screen. Paint it all military green. So it looks like a streetfighter, chop, rat bike of some sort.

At the moment, I’ve jacked the rear by 25mm and removed the rear mudguard.

I want to changed the front next. Anyone done a good job of this with a picture?

Cheers guys.

FZS600 Fazer / Paint code?
« on: 03 September 2017, 09:59:07 AM »
Ok, I give up. Where can I find the paint code for my 2001 silver fazer?

...also, can anyone recommend a cheap place to buy it. Paint is pricey.

FZS600 Fazer / Tachometer is nuts
« on: 29 August 2017, 09:55:05 AM »
My speedo was broken, so I managed to fix that, but now my tachometer goes up, then down, then the correct reading. I understand this is tell me there's a fault, and I guess it's a fault with the sensor as I've replaced the speed sensor and that's now working fine.

I've got a multimeter. What should I be testing and looking out for on the rev counter sensor?

Any help or link to info would be appreciated.

FZS600 Fazer / Which tyre?
« on: 03 April 2017, 11:43:20 AM »
I have a puncture on my front tyre. I've taken it off, to also repair that pesky speed sensor that's had the tags ripped off, and now I'm looking to replace the tyre.

Any of you guys ride repaired tyres or would you just replace the tyre?

I've got matching Bridgestone BT016's, would you buy like for like to match my existing rear or get something else? Any recommendations...

Many thanks.

FZS600 Fazer / Buying a 600 or 1000?
« on: 06 January 2015, 08:24:58 PM »
Hi guys. I'm looking at getting a fazer soon.  Is it worth saving up the extra and getting a 1000? Is it worth it? There's lots of cheap 600's to be had out there but few 1000's......

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Buying a!!
« on: 24 December 2014, 11:59:58 AM »
Hi guys. I'm new here. I'm looking at buying a yamaha fazer 1000. 2003 model but it's got 50k on the clock. There's no history with it and the fairing is missing because it's turned into a streetfighter. Used to be a police bike. I've done HPI check. 2 previous owners. Owner says it rides like half the mileage and he bought it from an auction and it didn't have the service history. It's been resprayed and the logbook needs updating to the new colour. I need some guidelines on what to check when I go look at this bike. I really want a fazer and turn it into a streetfight so it's the perfect bike but I dont wAnt my head ruling my heart. What things should I look for On the bike? It's just had a service and a mot. It's cheap. £1400 so I've got a a few hundred to play with putting things right.____________________
