Recommended is ethylene glycol antifreeze with corrosion inhibitors for aluminum engines.Most important is that it is Silicate and Boric free.
Not recommended to mix IAT and OAT.
I usually stick with Castrol, Comma or Silkolene

If you owned a dog that kept dumping in everyone elses garden there'd be hell to pay.
Also cat owners always claim to be animal lovers, yet their pets go around killing all the songbirds :rolleyes

I wouldn't think so, as the fuel pump is more than capable and the fuel line is large enough.
The increase in size over standard is not that big from the charts I have a  Dynojet 112 is about a Mikuni 105 and the original is Mikuni 92.5
Ensure the whole fuel line and filter are clean.

What is the centre to centre distance between the bolts?
The FZS1000 01-05 and FZS600 foxeye are 28mm. If yours are 28mm then they will fit, but no guarantee they will work properly adjustment wise

That made me laugh, Paul.  The number of Fazers I worked on that had battery wiring like yours, as though they were powering every accessory in Halfords. :)

Nice job now. :)

General / On the tools
« on: 28 December 2018, 04:23:35 PM »
 Saw this on another forum, something we can nearly all relate to  :lol I could add a few more to it and most of us probably could also  :D
Home mechanics advice sheet
 DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it.
 WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh sh --'
 SKILL SAW: A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short.
 PLIERS: Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters.
 BELT SANDER: An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs.
 HACKSAW: One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle... It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes.
 MOLE-GRIPS: Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand.
 OXYACETYLENE TORCH: Used almost entirely for lighting on fire various flammable objects in your shop. Also handy for igniting the grease inside the wheel hub out of which you want to remove a bearing race.
 TABLE SAW: A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood projectiles for testing wall integrity.
 HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK: Used for lowering a bike to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes, trapping the jack handle firmly under the exhaust.
 BAND SAW: A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops to cut good aluminium sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside edge.
 TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST: A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of everything you forgot to disconnect.
 PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER: Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lids or for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splashing oil on your shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads.
 STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER: A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and butchering your palms.
 PRY BAR: A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 p part.
 HOSE CUTTER: A tool used to make hoses too short.
 HAMMER: Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent the object we are trying to hit.
 UTILITY KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use.
 SON OF A BITCH TOOL: Any handy tool that you grab and throw across the garage while yelling 'Son of a bitch' at the top of your lungs. It is also, most often, the next tool that you will need   Reply With Quote

Second hand clutch boss and dump the 10% springs as they ruin the feel of the clutch.

Classic case of having the pressure plate out of correct position and over tightening  the bolts.
The torque on the bolts is only 8Nm not to much more than hand tight

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Throttle/carbs issues
« on: 26 November 2018, 06:22:42 PM »
Wee question regarding routing of cables. I ve seen diagrams of routing throttle cables, but in pics of bikes I see that some are above brake lever and some below. So , what is the right way, above or below lever ? Mine are below just cause it seems neater , although above gives less of a curve to cables. This does not help with [font=] vladgluhovhere problem , but may help when he gets back to fitting them back on the bike.[/font]
Out over the top in through the cable guide and the right side of the headstock

Get a tap and die set and run the thread further up the cable outer.

Prior to moving it spent all of its life outdoors in all of the rain. Now its in a garage and ironically its developing more issues.  :lol
Tell her, she will be put back out in the rain if she doesn't behave  :lol :lol

Check the connectors under the left infill panel. They suffer from corrosion and the light tap may have been enough to effect it.

I have had it three times on the right side of my face and twice on the left, which is apparently very rare. Mine has been bought on by an allergic reaction or a cold draught.
That is rare indeed, I know of quite a few who had it, but never knew anyone who had it more than once. :eek

There was a train of thought many years ago that severe drafts like driving in cold weather with the window open inflamed the seventh cranial nerve or the area around it.  The reason was because many truck drivers suffered from it.
Take care, not sure if driving the bike is a good idea as the risk to you eye is to great (infection, dust etc). Did you get an eye patch to wear against dust?
You might be as good looking as Tommys daughter when you recover  :D

My daughter in law had it and it was about 3 months before she was ok, but you need to be very careful with your eye.
