Got me discs on and stripped calipers and replaced seals just wondered if it is worth putting red rubber grease on the seals?

Are the front disc brake bolts the same size as the rear disc bolts for a 98 fazer?

Yep I bought a new solenoid. No spark when shorting the contacts on it. Battery is over 12.5v so assume it's still good.

Will have a look at the starter motor.

Its your starter motor brushes,same just happened to mine

Put delkevic on mine Bit of a fiddle fitting them in one piece pre-assembled so took it apart and did it in sections. Piece of cake. Come with link pipes between the downpipes so identical to the OEM ones.

Just fitted a set on my bike on thursday went straight on no problems,didn't even need to use the supplied silicone well worth the money.

Ahh i see, this is what happens when you don't read up properly (my bad). The starter is completely clean now though so I might put it back in and just see if it works.

Try these only takes 30 mins to strip and change.

It was the tap on the starter motor that fixed it.  Need to get those brushes cleaned or changed because it's going to happen again before too long

Yep got some on order for £5.99

When you say you cleaned the contacts, did you open up the solenoid and clean it internally. Common for the internal contacts to have green corrosion which intermittently stops the solenoid doing its job. Next time it happens short the big connections in the solenoid. If that turns the starter, change the solenoid. I don't know of anyone who had to strip a starter on the 600 to replace brushes. Heard of a few who had to because the starter was seized

I took out the electric connector block cleaned all contacts and soaked it in gt85, put back in done the same with the starter motor connection tapped the starter motor with the back of a screw driver and hit button,starts every time now.

Well i connected my zrx battery to the fazer and still just got the loud click sound from the solenoid,took solenoid out and cleaned contacts still the same,was going to take out starter motor and strip it down to check brushes but thought i would try cleaning electric cable connected to it first with some wd40,and also the old tap the starter motor with a hammer trick and now starts every time for the last couple of days :) funny things are electrics.Will keep an eye on it for a while for signs of it acting up again but it looks like starter motor will need stripping if it starts again,anyway i found some brushes for only £5.99 so cheap enough to fix if it happens again.

Anyway thanks for all replies and will be back if it happens again.

Yep done the test and it is 14.46 so looks like battery is still ok after over 10 years,looks like starter motor or solenoid think will start with solenoid.

Battery output on my meter was showing 10.65 on first attempt and 9.35 second prod of starter

No matter what the problem is, treat your bike to a new battery, i think it deserves it.

Yes probably will,also need a new set of downpipes as the originals have finally started blowing in all the wrong places,but the bike is used constantly,amazed they have lasted this long  :eek

I was thinking both the starter solenoid and brushes as it is weird it will start after just a minor bump from just pushing while sat on it and it will either start or just click,where is the starter solenoid, its not down by the fuse box by any chance?
Will still do a battery output check on my meter tomorrow as i finish work early,bike is nearly nineteen years old and in the 11 i have had it this is the first problem i have had, so not bad going as it is used every day all year.
Any way it is either battery,starter or solenoid,but which one  :book

Thanks for replys will give it a start and check output when i get in from work,think you are all right about it due to age.
Any one tried the motobat batterys the yellow ones or is there any other good batterys been a while since i bought one :rolleyes

Last few months i have been having a on and off starting problem,sometimes turns over ok then all of a sudden i just get a click coming from the battery area,if i put in gear and slightly bump in gear it will start when i hit the button.Not sure if it is starter motor,battery or some electrical issue, anyone had this or similar.

Battery charges ok and sits at 12.6 on the optimate but its over 10 years old?
Clicking sounds like it is coming from fusebox area down by battery.
Oh and its a 98 fazer 600

have you had the tank raised?
if so check the tank breather pipes are not kinked when you lowered it.
