For Sale & Wanted / WANTED FZ1S Givi Rack 359FZ
« on: 14 June 2018, 01:08:27 PM »
Hi has anyone got a FZ1S rack they no longer need ? Would consider buying box and all, but specifically looking for just the arms at the moment.

Ok, thanks chaps, decision made, going to keep the original and go for a slightly smaller numberplate I think.

A normal tail tidy (ie the R & G one) just replaces the OEM one. Nothing gets hacked down.

Hi could someone please confirm this is the case, that a tail tidy means a shit spray up your back ? Also I see some people have problem with fitting a GIVI rack after fitting a tail tidy ?

Big thanks to GlennC from this forum who sold me his sweet FZ1S which I picked up today. Moving up from a FZS600, makes you realise, what a fantastic bike that was. But love the muscle and the smooth delivery. And I can ride it into the ULEZ. On the lookout for a tail tidy, wondered what people would recommend, and do I keep the original indicators ?

Fazer FZS600 Boxeye for sale, in good condition, powerful, economical, reliable, couldnt ask for more from a bike. Long MOT till Mar 2019. Genuine reason for sale.
Pretty much standard apart from the following mods
Twin headlight conversion (both headlights come on when on dipped)
14,600 miles, 5000 of those in the last year. Never missed a beat.
Rear hugger
Front fender extender
Clear indicator lenses
Yamaha Engine Bars
Oxford Heated grips, properly fitted to switched live on the fuse box. Switch on fairing infill.
Original toolkit present.
Givi "Simply" 45L Monolock Top Box with 340F Mount (stronger than monokey)
Has unfortunately been dropped, on both sides, so a few scuffs and scratches, deep scratches to the stator cover but available new for £20 on Ebay. Theres also a crack in the fairing below the off side indicator stem (see picture)
MOT advisory.. new tyres required before next MOT.
Chain has some exterior salt corrosion
The bike has been ridden through the winter so expect normal minor corrosion to hardware, front of engine block.
The dust seals on the shocks could do with replacing.
I will include the Haynes manual.
I'm in Twickenham, you can view weekends as I'm working away.
I can supply the registration for history check by request

For Sale & Wanted / WTB Header clamps for FZS600
« on: 22 April 2018, 01:14:05 PM »
I am hoping someone has some old exhaust headers lying around, I need to replace a missing header clamp, hoping to source two clamps if possible but one is great.

Front sprocket nut, twin headlight, Orange indicator bulbs with clear lenses, hugger, fender extender, heated grips. I really like Fazersharps tail tidy too.


This ride is this coming Saturday morning, should be a beautiful day 22 degrees and sunny !

I am liking the analog mechanical approach !

Exactly. Its more about being forced to give up a running bike at knife/hammer point. And I'm pretty sure a scooter would struggle to push a 600 along ?


General / Transponder Immobiliser
« on: 12 April 2018, 01:53:48 PM »
does anyone have a transponder immobiliser ? What Im looking for is a small passive tag (similar to a smartcard) that could be in a glove, or a pocket, or in the helmet, that would activate the bike. If the tag was separated from the bike or not present, the bike wouldn't start, or would stall. Living in London the security issues are only getting worse ! I'm not sure how the antenna/transponder works, but the usual way is to have the antenna near the ignition, and the transponder on the keyring. I'm looking for a system where the transponder can be worn or be in a pocket somewhere, so that in the event of a bikejacking, the bike will stall.

« on: 05 April 2018, 08:49:06 PM »

 I ended up purchasing this fine chain breaker. It's done well so far until now when I have to put the rivet link in.

I bought one of these and it lasted 1 attempt at riveting a DID chain. Something snapped, cant remember which component. I had better luck with a Bergen branded one.  good luck.


For Sale & Wanted / WTB - End of April/May - FZ1-S
« on: 21 March 2018, 08:54:43 PM »
Hi Fockers
I will be looking for a FZ1-S after the end of April. Must have half fairing, and must be Gen2. Budget around £3k. Mileage no more than 15,000 and some history. Please send me a PRIVATE MESSAGE if you have something that fits the bill. I am in London but will travel anywhere within reason.


Motorcycles Matter!
Join our Awareness Ride in London
Saturday 21st April 2018
All motorcycle, scooter and moped riders are invited to come to London on 21st April to make the point that “Motorcycles Matter”.

Motorcycles play an important role in our congested cities.

The problem is that the people running things don’t get it.
Transport for London (TfL) and the Mayor of London refuse to acknowledge this.
It’s not just London: there are another 28 authorities around the country looking into Clean Air Zones (CAZ) and charging vehicles for entering them.
In London, it will cost £12.50 a day to pass the North and South Circular into central London.

Your Local Authority should be doing more to make it safe to park your bike by supplying more motorcycle parking bays with security.
Manufacturers should be doing more to build in better security.
Insurance companies should not be punishing the owners.
The government should be doing more to support the Police in their fight against theft and increasing the penalties so that owners are not financially punished due to increased premiums.
We are not a ‘cash cow’ to bolster failing finances due to government cutbacks.

So it’s time for motorcyclists to hit the road for a “Motorcycles Matter” awareness ride!

Keep an eye on social media for updates on this event.

Get passionate! Get involved!
Because Motorcycles Matter!

Yes Betty the 3rd runway would increase all traffic by 50% but corporations can profit from that ! And kerosene is still untaxed ! And unfortunately what passes for s consultation is more like a warning - they completely ignore all feedback and public opinion, all about the ££
