your mrs bought you a helmet to match a c90, one question- Does she have a single sister ????
best reaction i have ever got has been - YOU BOUGHT ANOTHER PROJECT!!!!!!!
at that point i chose to be single as bikes dont complain when i ride them too hard

Everytime i see an update on this project i get a little excited to see whats happend
she is looking good give yourself a pat on the back.
i enjoy seeing an old bird come to life (but not at the strip club, that once was enough)

Before I buy one, can anyone tell me the diameter of the axle hole on the fz6 bracket? If it’s bigger than the fzs600 then it’s a non-starter.
if its bigger than the fzs then it can still be done and not loose any strength
only problem is you need a friend with a lathe who can turn you up a sleeve with tight outer tolerances and throw it in the freezer overnight

then have it pressed in there

only if its leaking from the tap or the sealing joint, it doesnt have anything in that will fix the brass pipe problem
if your replacing the tap in the future it cant hurt to have one nearby as they are less than a tenner and saves being off the road for a few more days

might get away with smearing it with some liquid metal and sliding it back in place
im not pulling mine apart to check if that will work as it might need a new fueltap

re siting would be the obvious but unfortunatly the caliper bracket mounting bracket would be on the wrong side (would face the rear as its spun round)
flipping the bracket so outside face is facing wheel might work but i wouldnt expect it to line up
certainly an interesting idea but i have a feeling they put it on the bottom for a good reason when you think about the forces applied and in which direction, the 2k R6 had a top mounted caliper so there was no benefit i can think of so that only leaves technical issues for its location
im all for modifying things and it has me wondering how it could be done (wish i still had the milling machine available)

the yellow and blue should be your pick up coil wires so definatly repair the blue one if you exposed any bare wire

if this turns out to be the fault (and as the only sign of ever heating was the dreaded red light)
this is a perfect example of how hard it can be to diagnose a problem only over the internet/phone/email etc


but like you say its best to do some of those jobs and check them over - at least you have a service book
all i got with my fazer was a cuppa and some questions on how to lower his trike
(just found out he might not have even sent the registration paperwork lol)

no worries mate i forgot to measure mine aswell and what a ball ache -i made my own vacuum pump in a way that i dont show in the video because it is just unsafe for human consumption (i cant describe how without opening up to rude jokes) - mine actually seem a bit long to be honest but if i do a front end swap it might be to my advantage

what a pain in the arse that was
if i did it the old fashioned way i would have been fine but decided to use my old 'one man bleed system'
after a lot of messing around and nothing going to plan i found out it was broken doing it the old fashioned way it went great
 - will invest in one of those vacuum systems at some point

As a precaution I would change the thermostat, they are easy enough to fit and rules out one possible source of your problem.
Sh*t i forgot to write that

its not the ignition switch as the dash lights are still on and the oil/fuel light come on it is a warning to a switch issue


clutch switch only effects starting when in gear and wont cut an engine out
sidestand switch will cut out an engine when put down
kill switch will cut out an engine when 'killed'


im putting a fiver on the sidestand switch as it goes to normal after a few mins and no one ever thinks of sidestand switches while F-ing and blinding at a bike that wont start (yep me included) yet it gets the most stress as it gets all kinds of road crap flying at it and sticking to grease

there could be a couple of problems here not just one because its winter so you shouldnt be having overheating problems when riding
best to take a day to check a few things at once to ensure your cooling system is tip top
1, pump flow by opening the drain screw and starting engine (keep your legs clear it sprays) then top up
2, radiator clogging - just remove top hose then bottom hose and if you only get a slow drizzle then there is your problem (flush it)
3, fan switch, need an ohmeter for this one and an old pan (check the manual how to do this)

personally i think this sounds like a coolant flow issue because its winter so the fan should rarely come on - unless city commuting


if your lucky it is just an air lock and you wont find a problem it will just mysteriously be fixed once you do a coolant swap
if its a bit of a bugger then its a blockage it could be a coolant issue or it could be water type ie hard water (or both) just flush it
if your really really unlucky the impeller fans might be bust, but this is worst case rare scenario and easy to check once everything else is done

how to test the water pump
open the drain screw and crank up the engine for a second or two
you will be able to tell the difference

ok so a quick look around turns out the blanked one would be a startup/enrichening jet
originally found this out looking at pics of a mikuni bsr36 (we have bsr33 so close enough)
that says choke to me so i got more intrested because its blanked off
found this http://www.xj4ever.com/inside%20your%20carbs.pdf
and i can say i have no bloody idea further than its blanked off now so it can stay blanked off
