might as well get her out and give her a average run in the not perfect weather to scrub them in
nothing wrong with warming up now instead of going out and getting too hot too quick
an entire wing in lancaster hospital last time i was there was a testiment to too hot to quick
-8 of us on one wing only 4 due to other parties, 2 riders and 1 pillion from one bad driver, 1 due to a rogue sheep.
ride safe brothers - know your limits (and push a little to learn)

5 of the 8 studs sheared heads got to come off now - was amazed how easy they snapped
tried all the tricks heat/flash freeze tap in with hammer to break seal - nothing worked
really didnt want to have to do head strip
and its harder on this than my 82 gsx1100
i knew i should have bought a bike lift

ok so nuts were in worse than expected condition no spanner / gator grip / maul grips would work
spliting chisel and lots of time to tap and split nuts only resulted in two broken studs
tommorow will be removing exhaust, moving rad and associated bits and left over studs
in house engineer (Father) will be drilling out broken studs without much issue as long as no more break

if your replacing the downpipes there is nothing wrong with going aftermarket stainless for usability - concours is the right word but we are talking 17-19 year old hi-number survivor bikes here so by the time they are show bikes any exhaust bought today will be ruined anyway
we have classic cars here and i can tell you now concours owners are a league of there own
if you have a 1950 BSA B33 i will push you to go concours where possible, but a fzs is never worth the money at the moment

i have no history of using these but look carefully - the link bars are totally different (there is a extra bend)
the sellers fazer may have been non standard hangers etc
- as it doesnt fit it might be time for vice/blowtorch/hammer alteration

god knows what that new connector is but forget it for now
you need a male h4 connector from your local auto supplier (few quid)
use a multimeter to check this as cant be arsed going down garage to check (in warmth with beer)
pic 1 -lower(left) = earth /// upper (right) = high beam (or vise versa)
pic 2 - as before but top is your low beam
pic 3 - your side light - you have to figure which is + / -

easiest way to determin the correct setup is to use more wire than you need to make sure then shorten once you know it is correct
advise -buy shrink wrap and lift your tank to see where you can make things tidier
h4 plugs are ugly but help in early setup stages

i am doing similar over next few weeks as i run dominators but in an untidy way untill i get my speedo sorted

as your going streetfighter aswell you might want to add my youtube as i will be vloggin most of the build (check signature )

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Piston Ring Compressor size?
« on: 18 March 2017, 12:39:21 AM »
an old trick when need be has been to use jubilee clips
62mm bore x PIE = cornish pastie or (62 x 3.141592653589 = just short of 195mm  )
with a jubilee clip you dont mind wasting a couple of quid once done and they tend to come in packs of 2 at least
- im sure its a 62mm bore but im not pulling my engine to check

FZS600 Fazer / Re: New front tyre and rubbing sound?
« on: 17 March 2017, 01:02:35 AM »
yes but causing excess friction and/or breakage
if replacing yourself use a bit of grease on the tabs to hold it in place then locate outer part
- better bet sending it back to garage if your not a spanner monkey as the bolts on the fender are likely to snap if seen too much road and not enough lube (like my ex GF)

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Help needed - fuel problem
« on: 16 March 2017, 05:44:06 PM »
just had a thought - did you do a compression check on the replacement engine?
if the inlet valves are not sealing it can positive pressurise the carb venturi tube during the compression cycle causing pressure in the float bowl and pushing the fuel through the breather
that would explain no fuel in 1+2 therefore not firing and would explain why fuel only exits breather when running
also its a lot easier to compression check than to remove carbs
think about it and let me know as it is mearly a theory but in my head a sound one

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Speedo reading problem
« on: 15 March 2017, 10:14:44 PM »
has it always done this while you have owned it or recently started
does it say kph or mph (100kph = 62mph)
as you said twice the speed then that is close enough

« on: 15 March 2017, 05:07:28 PM »
after removing from the shoe box did you do anything to them or just refit and start up
carbs that have been dried and stored are best opened up to give a clean to check any residue, broken orings,blocked jets etc etc
if you have cold 1+2 then your running no fuel through so its time to pull them and inspect with the prospect of a rebuild kit needed
be sure to check all your jets and everything while your there

exhaust gaskets £4-5 are all over ebay as are the studs £8ish
i have the exact same problem at the moment and while waiting for the new studs i have sprayed wd on studs everyday
have suffered in this area with smaler bikes with easier access so this is going to be an interesting one
make sure you use a anti sieze compound on the new studs

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Silent Sprockets, worth fitting?
« on: 13 March 2017, 01:46:05 AM »
had never heard of these so off i went to have a look as i thought i must be misunderstanding
nope a sprocket that makes less noise - erm i cant hear mine anyhow except when pushing around the garage
its just one more fail point on something that takes a huge amount of force
it is no more than a gimmick - im not saying it doesnt work (nearly liable there) but i am saying it is pointless IMO

ooh that opens so many more opportunities for the build

FZS600 Fazer / Re: What have you done to your FZS600 bike today
« on: 10 March 2017, 11:57:54 PM »
got my new speedo sender fitted (after soldering some broke wires on so called 'full working order' unit)
then realised i had a loose header pipe and in turn realised how corroded my exhaust studs and bolts were
new studs bolts and ex gaskets ordered so looks like im on the chop this weekend (any excuse to ride before i sell)
if you read this sat morning and live in north there might be a small meetup in burnley tesco on sat at around 12ish
if your interested i will be letting youtube user rookierider know on his page
infact if your in the northwest add myself and rookie as a meetup at somepoint is on the cards - especially if you motovlog

« on: 10 March 2017, 11:50:14 PM »
just to clarify
does this mean i can fit a foxeye tank without a problem to my 2k 5dm ???
dont need to right now but knowledge is power and the fighter build is on its way

could consider this if you want to keep your fairing looking stock

FZS600 Fazer / Re: HELP really need some speedo advise
« on: 07 March 2017, 04:09:34 PM »
i checked them yesterday hoping that was the problem but everything was fine
the original rotor was cracked and i took the bike through a flood last week so i have a feeling some water may have got into the sensor and fried something
when the new one arrives i might disect it to see whats actually inside one of those
-first time i have worked on a dodgy electronic speedo i dont normally bother with speedos at all
wouldnt bother at all if it didnt screw with the ignition timing

« on: 07 March 2017, 02:04:10 PM »
interesting development i measured the white wire today all plugged in (use a pin) and the speedo was jumping all over the place
(no rotator in the sensor)
measured the voltage and it was jumping all over the place at times then doing nothing at others
same thing happened when i put the rotator in and spun it
ordered a new sensor from fleabay for £30

as i have only owned the fzs a month i have to ask
what the front sprocket nut issue is
looks like the threads disappearing / anything else i should know
(one more little job to look at tommorow)

FZS600 Fazer / Re: HELP really need some speedo advise
« on: 06 March 2017, 10:08:40 PM »
damnit looks like im going to have to buy a speedo sensor and hope its that
thank god for ebay cause £100 is just ridiculous

« on: 06 March 2017, 05:33:21 PM »

fairing was damaged by previous owner so :switched to dominator headlights
when i get the factory speedo working again
koso style speedo going on
dominators will be vertically mounted
future plans include
renthal bars in blue
streetfighter tail piece eventually
alarm removed or deactivate button hidden under tailpiece
all will be painted metalflake blue
then will start really upgrading with usd forks and custom triple trees
prob build a new braced swingarm to match wheel
