Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Broken exup bolts
« on: 23 August 2019, 05:55:28 PM »
just thought i’d mention this if anyone has the same problem of broken exup bolts.
I’ve just recently had my exup bolts drilled out and the threads re tapped, which is nice.
The remains of the broken bolts in the housing were harder than a very hard thing and resisted several attempts to drill them until my guy got some drill bits from a locksmith, these worked really well.
So, if you have the problem, don’t waste your money at machine mart or other such places selling titanium or cobalt bits, get down to you local locksmith and get the bits from them.

 I still have the AIS on my thou and my mivv exhaust pops and bangs like a Battlefield.
I love it.

The R1250r has got under my skin, the boxer engine is smooth and torquey and the bike is quick comfortable and is very flickable, I also like it’s charachter of  rocking the bike left when you blip the throttle.
I would have one tomorrow if something happened to my fazer thou.

I test rode the bmw r1200r and the r1250r and the 1250 is impressive.
Hooning down country lanes in 3rd gear riding on a wave of torque is really something.
I then did the same route on my fazer thou and decided that the fazer ain’t half bad too,so I decided to keep it.
There’s something that the fazer thou has that I can’t let go of.

Fear for their own lives and that of their families also.

Thank you for the heads up, I want one of those.

Jeez, your mate wouldn’t come round and do mine would he, I tried it and failed miserably even with cobalt bits.

I have full monty and there is a very slight hesitancy from tickover to light throttle opening, like a fluffing of the carbs which can be heard in the exhaust, catches me out at the lights if i’m Being lazy wristed.
I read that this symptom is indicative of correct pilot screw settings so i’m  not too bothered, still goes like stink :D

A massive massive thank you to robbo who came round and sorted the problem, much appreciated and I now know what I need for future oil filter changes.

I bought from halfrauds a pair of oil filter pliers, thought these would do the job, but no.
I guess they would be ok if the filter wasn’t so tightly on, lord knows when the filter was replaced.

for the life of me I can’t seem to unscrew my oil filter.
What can I do before I resort to a hammer and screwdriver and possibly foc it for good.

quickshifters cut the ignition to each coil via their own pattern but that momentary ignition cut doesn’t mean that the cylinder will have more fuel in it the next time it fires, the unburnt fuel will exit out of the exhaust valves in the normal way.

A quickshifter gives you the ability to change gear without backing off of the throttle, it momentarily cuts the ignition at the coils which unloads the engine and allows you to change gear, up the box not down.
Full power shifts so to speak.

I thought exactly the same when I rode my Fazer thou after a test ride on a bmw s1000xr and bmw R1200R.
The fazer thou is a very good machine.

Believe it or not i’ve Ridden all the colours of the fazer and the blue was definitly the fastest :lol

I have some renthal 758s in Black that would set those red levers off nicely.
Would prefer not to post though but would do if I have to.
Am in Surrey.

I have v-trec levers on my thou and it says in the instructions to use the bushings from the originals, they are a good lever, more expensive than cheaper ones but less expensive than expensive ones :D .

Just throwing this in here to see if anyone has tried the helicoil method, tap v helicoil, which one is better or easier even.

Will give that a go but might try the easy outs first.
