definatly from above as it is above the threads (or below in that pic)
i have never and hope to never see anything that bad come from within
(and i have rebuilt an engine from cumbrias floods even that wasnt that bad)

hopefully no one will shoot me for this
but i believe the ignition timing is either advanced or retarded slightly when there is no/little throttle
there is a reason we have ignition modules nowadays and dont just run points like the good old days
(the good old days - im only 34 FFS)

was suprised but with the postage on top i think i will wait till i need some other bits and get it all at once - only ground out once today and its prob been missing for a while

by any chance did you use the tub of vinegar trick for derusting, did an entire fuel tank that way once and wanted chips for a week

nevermind - found it on fowlers - £4.28 for the big spring (tension spring)

FZS600 Fazer / side stand spring help
« on: 31 August 2017, 04:07:02 PM »
could someone have a quick look at there sidestand for me and tell me how many springs there should be
i have one spring and a rubber cover but i am sure there should be two springs with the rubber between them
the reason i ask is because my sidestand wont stay down or all the way up so something is definatly wrong

thats why im trying to find the thread that apparently has the dimensions so i can put in in my book of intresting fazer stuff
(prob could publish a book by the end of the year)

did anyone find this thread cause im hunting around like mad with no luck

not a clue how much a fabricator would charge as i do my own welding
a cheap welder would give you the ability to tack on what you need (and grind off if wrong)
then could be sent to a fabricator to fully weld up which should look profesional

sometimes its best to have a subframe in your hand so you can see how things align and what methods could be used/bodged

could end up being a good little fight of the fighters here both me and brooker starting with a 2k silver fazer to build something
i have a feeling my build will take longer though as i still have to find a new house before i start

there are loads out there done - but never a quick easy swap
i built an entire subframe for my old fz600 from a spare i had laying around for a race seat from a midi moto
an option could be to use a bolt on subframe, weld on some attatchment lugs so it becomes a bolt on, you could play with its geometry easier that way
ie - weld on top lugs and bolt then figure out the dimensions of the lower lugs to get seat angle or eurofighter arse up look.
that might be the way i go but i havent decided yet as i can use the bits i need to chop off the standard sub to make my eurofighter seat fit

i just wish people would stop building heaps by putting a seat hoop, a flat seat, exhaust wrap and some clip ons and saying its a custom built cafe racer when very little has been done and charging loads for a bike that in my opinion is not finished
not to mention exhaust wrap has no real place in the motorcycle world, we dont even use in in our rally cars where it would be usefull

if you look up fazer streetfighter on youtube the most many do is fit dominator headlights and chop off half the seat
i admit i am only at the headlight stage and airbox removal so far but it was just to get the thing on the road untill the full build starts
and i will put so much more money into the build than the bike will ever be worth but its what i like to do and enjoy every minute of doing it
the only way to really make money from custom builds is to build for other people and let them foot the cost of parts and your time

yep TPS on right hand side of the carbs
make sure it is all plugged in and contacts are clean (including under tank if there is another plug to the main loom)
i forget to plug mine in everytime i have the carbs off and think WTF for a second

he has said everything is sparking fine though

Note for future - spit on your thumb before each downpipe lol

« on: 28 August 2017, 04:49:14 PM »
mine is 'lumpy' at low revs/tickover and i know it is due to the pilot jets being blocked
are some of your exhaust downpipes cooler than others when ticking over/warming up
if so that is a good posibility

can only be the pilot jet on number three cylinder, make sure its clean

damn you beet me to the carb section - was leaving this till second as can be a bastard to get in there
- i have a pilot issue on mine at moment on 1+2 and ticks over like a lump just aint got the time to rip them out at the moment

when you say missfire there are so many meanings and i dont think any of them are applying here
a pop and a bang through your exhaust every so often is a missfire (missplaced firing)
but below 3000 rpm no bang, above 3000rpm a bang things are a little different
this is where things get interesting and somewhat difficult to identify through here (but have before)
starting with easiest to get access etc

can you smell petrol in your oil (take filler cap off and get your nose in there)
(if you can then blown gasket or piston rings kaput)

are you able to perform a compression test ??? check all 4 and write them down you will see if something is wrong
(below 3k rpm pressure could just leak into crank through a couple of routes gasket/piss rings or even badly seated valves [size=78%])[/size]
(above 3k rpm its still leaking but not fast enough so still ignites)

these are only the two i would start with here because this has popped up a few times but described differently and has turned out as 2 blown gaskets (including my own) and one badly seated exhaust valve - thankfully both of these are relatively easy to fix if you have the time, patience and a little know how (or this forum to be pointed in right direction)
and in tommorows lesson we shall be looking at fuelling issues

Blown gasket - REPLACE GASKET (bet you couldnt have guessed that :lol [/size][size=78%])[/size]
[/size]Non seating valve - Valve lapping then check clearances - its easy its basic its like being in the scouts before we had lighters (some might get that joke)[size=78%]
[/size]piston rings - pray that it isnt them (it is the least likely to be a problem)[size=78%]

thats always been my usual way of doing things - not anymore
thankfully i have got the bike back and have decided to to a full rebuild (might even reframe hardtail)
just have to decide which to do first the gsx chop or the fazer streetfighter

I've never really understood the café racer thing. Each to his own I guess, but basically it appears to me you're just removing all the practical good bits and devaluing a classic bike. Fair enough if you've just crashed it mind!  :'(

Ditch the air box and replace with air filters which are more expensive and difficult to set up and run optimally.
Remove the under-seat storage (toolbox, puncture kit, chain/lock and waterproofs gone).
Remove the fairing and any wind protection and comfort.
Fit clip on /dropped handlebars to create a less comfortable riding position.
Fit dinky indicators that no one can see.
Fit some dodgy radial oversized tyres and drop the forks to ruin the handling.
Then tell the insurance company about all the mod's and watch your premiums go up.

I s'pose on the upside you might like the look of it, even if you don't enjoy riding it so much.  ;) ;) :D :D :b :b :eek :eek

you tell you insurance company about your mods - fuck that lol
