Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Blue Fazer 1000 for sale. Owen Cherrell Grimsby
« on: 21 November 2018, 07:17:07 AM »
Anybody on here used to own the blue fazer 1000 for sale in Owen Cherrell in Grimsby  ? Sold my thou last year (2005 beauty but it was red and black, just didn't like the colour scheme ) and toying with the idea of another one but it's a bit too far to pop down for a look (I live in Durham ) without knowing more. Long shot but you never know

See advert below. Please see the other post by Carlsv8 with full details of the bike if you are interested, thanks.

Another pic. added, still defying gravity.

<blockquote><blockquote>3 previous owners (I know 2 of them, lads from work). 20k miles, Mot until September, sailed through the last one, refurbished wheels. 2k miles ago it had new tyres, oil, filter, air filter, plugs, battery. Extras are fenda extenda, double bubble screen, tank protector, Givi rack, tribo seat cover, scottoiler , hugger, radiator guard, disc lock, smoked indicator lenses (originals supplied), newish Oxford Oximiser. The TPS works fine, the gearbox sprocket has not been welded on (horror stories about this kicking about). Bike is in 8/10 condition for its age (spent 10 years off road), all paperwork , both keys, bike in my name at my address. Haynes manual. Always garaged.
Bad points
Limited service history, paint coming off the down pipes, the frame on the front engine mount and a bit off the front of the engine, bit of a scratch on the tank near where your knee touches, odd plastic scratch here and there. Bit of clutch rattle but they all seem to have this.

£1300 fixed price, no offers please as it's not overpriced. Bike needs absolutely nothing doing to it. Easiest bike to ride I've owned and they are brilliant. If you like more info drop me a line and I'll answer any questions</blockquote></blockquote>

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Gen 1 1000 fork seals
« on: 27 July 2017, 08:50:48 PM »
Need to do my fork seals, any makes to avoid or definitely buy. Also any tips, I've done fork seals before but not on a thou. so are there any 'challenges' or 'wish I'd bought one of those' tools.

Excellent condition, tinted, hinge is nice and tight! prefer my flip screen,  pick up  £45 or will post to standard UK addresses for £50.fixed price. £90+ new. Pm me if you are interested

Free but you have to pick it up, will definitely not post, near Durham City. Excellent condition and about £60 new.
Pm me if you are interested.


<blockquote>1997 Honda FireBlade RRV. One owner (me) from new, 28k miles.
Contrary to good selling practice I'm going to list the bad points first. RHS has some minor fairing marks and indicator hole has 2 x 5 mm cracks. (Pictures if reqd.) PSH up to 16k (4 years then serviced by me), original suspension and chain & sprockets (it has had that easy life), minor corrosion on the exhaust, MOT has expired, few normal marks from use (she is 20 years old). RHS fork seal has slight weep. Sorned.
Now the good points.
Always garaged, never ridden in the winter, never wheelied, all original paperwork from new. In the last 1000 miles she has had new tyres (BT 016, brilliant tyres), battery (yuasa), brake pads, spark plugs, air filter (Honda), oil and filter (Honda), All old MOT certs, Datatag (paperwork) Datatool Veto Evo 3 + original 2 fobs (paperwork), both original keys, renntec sports rack, Remus Grand Prix Oval carbon can (not fitted), tinted screen (original supplied), mini indicators (originals supplied), hugger, scottoiler from new. Lives on an Oxford Optimiser, starts on the button and purrs like a Honda should.. She has never been in an accident or down the road, the levers are original and the engine cases unmarked. The engine is as it left the factory. Haynes manual.
I have a load of pictures that I can send should anyone be interested. Most of you will disagree with this but the engine makes a Fazer sound rough (controversial thing to say on a Fazer forum). These are an appreciating asset now but she is hardly ridden and that's what bikes are for. Medical issue forces sale but I'm in no rush, if you are interested the best thing to do is ring me and I will give a %100 honest appraisal of my bike, I have owned her for 20 years so this is a very reluctant sale.
<blockquote>£1500 absolutely 100% fixed price.</blockquote></blockquote>

General / Handlebar vibration extra damping
« on: 17 June 2017, 04:19:05 PM »
Anyone put extra weight inside their handlebars to damp out vibration, I've renthal ultra lows with RG end weights but there is still an annoying vibration there, I was thinking of kiln dried sand, lead shot or brass internal bar, approx. 13mm diameter by 150mm long. Any thoughts ?

I'm after a tinted MRA touring screen, not a Varioscreen , the tall one, or a tinted Yamaha touring screen and a set of original Yamaha crash bungs, must be in excellent nick.

General / Stopped single policeman in a non traffic car
« on: 10 May 2017, 06:56:54 PM »
Got stopped today by a non traffic police car, I overtook a P driver on a long straight 30mph road who was doing about 25 mph and she was to be honest appalling, I'd followed her round a roundabout and she virtually right angled it at about 10 mph.As luck would have it there was a police car (non traffic) a bit behind me, cue blue lights followed by 'I could do you for 47mph and careless driving' but he gave me a lecture instead which was fair enough, seemed like a decent bloke, I'm sure I didn't do 47 and it was a safe overtake. Question is can a single, non traffic car policeman do you for speeding or anything else for that matter, I thought if there was no video evidence there had to be 2 witnesses.
Ironically further down the road I was stuck, in a 60 limit, behind the 'P' driver doing about 35mph for about 5 miles along with, you guessed it, the police car.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Renthal High Bars
« on: 03 May 2017, 12:48:58 PM »
Anyone fitted them and were all cables etc. long enough. Got ultra lows currently fitted and they are too low (oddly enough) and too wide for me.
All info. gratefully received

FZS600 Fazer / Double bubble screen or standard on a Foxeye.
« on: 14 April 2017, 06:15:35 PM »
My 2002 Foxeye came with a double bubble screen but if I stand up riding the wind noise decreases. Has any one swapped from a double bubble to a standard and did it reduce wind noise, I'm 5'10" with shortish legs and a longish body.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Exup bolts sheared
« on: 08 April 2017, 11:50:46 AM »
Having a good look  round my newly acquired Gen 1 and one of the bolts holding the Exup cover is sheared  :'( .  Can anyone tell me the depth of the hole and the bolt size. I'm a bit reticent to take out the other 2 as it is working fine, though will have to at some point. Is there a standard way of bolt removal, ie heating up the casing and regular applications of WD 40, or is down to luck, I know this has been covered a few times but there may be a standard way now.

Nothing to do with me but there is what looks (as far as you can tell from photos) to be a nice Gen. 1 1000 for sale in Crook, County Durham, (that's up north for you southern chaps). Silver, 18k miles £2500 (reduced from 2650) . Check out gumtree for details. Repeating myself here but I don't know the seller and I've never seen the bike in the flesh so it may be a heap, but it looks alright. Please don't ask me to put a link to it, I still  struggle with toasters !

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Chinese Brake and Clutch levers
« on: 31 March 2017, 07:26:17 AM »
Anyone bought a set of the short adjustable titax'ish levers from China , any good or a waste of £15 ?

Good summer ahead for me I think.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Renthal medium bars 755s or other sizes.
« on: 20 March 2017, 01:06:12 PM »
Anybody fitted these to their Gen. 1  or does everyone go for the ultra low bars. If you have fitted either did you keep the old cables and hoses. First decent ride on my 1000 at the weekend (after the 3 w s, waiting for it, work and weather) and the original bars are proper sh1te, not sure who they were designed to fit but it certainly wasn't a 5ft. 10 bloke with normal elbows. I definitely need less sweep, maybe a bit more height and a little bit closer to me I reckon? Apart from that, and the weather, what a lovely bike to ride.
All info. gladly received.
Cheers Gents.
