FZS600 Fazer / paint matching !!! - add your finds
« on: 21 December 2017, 11:12:44 PM »
ok so i found that while painting my silver 2k boxeye that fords moondust silver was a more than close enough match
incase anyone in the future is trying to get a close match please add what you have found to be a close match to your bikes colour
i found this forum by a random search of something so maybe others will find it helpfull too.

If you decide to repaint, I found Honda Rio Red car paint from Halfords, a very close match to Yamaha VRC1. Painted my repaired belly plan, and you have to look very hard to see the difference to the tank and fairing.
thats just given me an idea for a new thread

i for certain know they go for silly money and are easy to work on aswell which is just a bonus - might have to send a few back home if i ever get to japan (got to pay the rent somehow) there is a huge following and the c90 club seriously have the knowledge (not nearly as good as us though)
if your gonna rattle can it and ride it for a year or two then sell - then you cant make a loss i know a 6v engine alone just got sold for £200 (go figure)

279
aah its not the one from original picture but still looks in reasonable nick

280
i admit i wouldnt do that to a nice example but you cant even find basket cases for a £100 great lucky find and i hope you give it the justice it deserves - which is wierd considering it was the most produced motor vehicle of all time (i think the beetle was second)

281
100 quid - will double your money and pay delivery if you want
ive wanted one for years to turn into a mental build but they are at silly money
something for the bikeshed.cc

i currently have a drift hd1080 was thinking about going 4k but there are a few too many issues and they have taken some backwards steps in usabilty so im thinking drift ghost s as it has the external charging and mic ports only problem i will have is that i have to start hunting microphones again as the hd is 2.5 mm and the ghost is 3.5
would look good hiding behind a nice new red fairing but someone beat me too one on ebay lol (Hijacked and Returned)

yeah im sure its a 15t oem so adding one to the front is like taking 3 from the rear (the general consensus) so you will loose a bit of acceleration and gain top end speed - or more likely just reduce rpm for long motorway runs
i think its about 110 links but that is a number that just popped into my head so could be out

(i used to have a second set of sprockets just for my long runs on my old bike and it can make a suprising difference for motorway miles but im talking 300+ miles each way as cumbria to london and norfolk was very common for work)


edit - man drawer in shed????, isnt a shed a man zone and might get a womans drawer??

he has been pushing it home for the last 4 days - suddenly that long distance rideout was a bad idea

why did i not think to look at the pic that stares me in the face everytime i look at this post lol
yeah that is a hole hole not a drain hole - assuming you put the red circle in the right place and not trying to mess with our heads
bit of gun gum should solve a little problem there - no point paying a guy to weld up a hole on an exhaust that is hitting the end of its life
but as fazerider just pointed out - it aint your running issue as i have run with no pipe at all without a problem
(apart from deafness - I SAID APART FROM DEAFNESS)

when you say small hole at base of exhaust - do you have the factory exhaust on there and do you mean at the lowest/most forward part of the silencer - i think that one is meant to be there for drainage - i noticed that hole once i realized how fucked the insides were as i was getting a lot of escaping gasses through it

293
i find it brilliant how it instantly comes to buying a new part and not the free stuff first - its even possible to test the reg rec instead of just replacing it
ooh it had a battery drop it must be the reg rec broken - NO because the chances are the test was done top side of the battery terminals so a voltage drop can show from a bad earth or positive connection due to corrosion, or a bad connection on the reg rec connections that a a quick pull apart and clean could sort in seconds
maybe more people need to be skin flints first then waste money later lol

you did say earlier that you cleaned your air filter with compressed air
although it will look cleanish they never are as all the open cells fill with microscopic dirt that clings like a mutha and obstruct flow
always worth the £10 for a replacement if your in there (if you go K+N thats up to you but will set you back more)


looking at the pic i dont think thats a coilpack mod as the wire thickness still looks HT size - but they do look a bit different from a standard setup

I agree about it not being a real concern with very low mileages being done, and, to be honest I am not relying on the bike as everyday transport. (Summer Fun)


I clean my bike each time i ride it unless I'm going out on it again the following day, I do it to get the dead bodies off the screen, headlamps and fairing, the baked flies and bugs off the exhaust headers and radiator guard.


Don't say it! I know get a foccing life, but as Darrsi said in an earlier comment, half the fun of owning a bike is the fettling with it.
Well it is for me anyhoo  :rolleyes


not just fettling by the sounds of it, replacing fairings and dodging police because of all the people you have riden into hard enough for there lifeless bodys to stick to the fairing

Tommy when you enter that shed the mrs ardin aint sleeping - she gets out her other lubrication device lol


after this weekends dirty ride (not mrs ardin) i too have a session of cleaning the bike and lubing up the spinning thing (that IS mrs ardin)
good old lubricant will do it fine (wont make a joke here)


taking your time to look after a bike is all part and parcel of ownership
similar to being married to mrs ardin

(tommy - i wrote this hoping you would see the funny side if she reads this i hope she thinks i am your alter ego and it is all you)
(foc-u ban is expected in the inbox within 24hours)

Yeah maybe she has one of those Twot Oilers I have often wonder what the cable ties on her thigh were for and the mess all over her rear end.

gave it a spray with brake cleaner
sprayed again with jet wash (it was still out)
wd40 on chain

coated nicely in rock oil chain lube (must have got it from ebay)
