Is this still an issue buddy?
The forum software had an update due, I've installed the newest patch so hopefully it's sorted out any issues.

General / Happy New Year from here in Kiwiland!

Happy New Year to you foccin' bunch from down here in Kiwiland.


Here's to 2016 being everything you guys want and more!
Having ridden my bike a meagre 5 times since she arrived here, I'm planning on putting a shit load of miles on her this year.
Hope you guys do likewise and there are plenty of Foc-U meets and shenanigans to keep us all amused.

Love 'n hugs,

If you're looking to make it an overnighter we've had some really good experiences with this mob here.
Central to all the really good roads, especially the Kinlochleven TT.

Sadly I won't be attending, a little too far to ride, even for me.

The thinking behind not having them is that the old forum had them, and they were posted in about once every decade or three, so we went for the slimline approach when setting up this incarnation of the board.
If you have a wee look at the "articles" tab up top you should find a whole range of those type of things.

It means either that you'e clicked on the font size menu above the reply box or you've been playing with brackets and the forum thinks you're using bbcode to alter the size of the font.
Or the font faeries have taken umbrage at your posts, that could be a possibility too...

Downey, not sure how you managed it, but the site seemed to go in a huff when you used the :useless smiley.


For whatever reason it was in a huff at the "this thread is useless..." emoticon, I've deleted it and all seems to be good now.
Foccin' weird...

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Radiator fitting snapped as I'm a twat
« on: 27 June 2015, 07:35:47 AM »
Right, I'm officially the unluckiest and clumsiest foccer in the world.

Riding 'Bee to work, heated grip comes away from the throttle tube so she becomes unrideable.
Park up, get a lift to work and head back to pick her up that night on the back of my ute.
Turns out I forgot to turn off the ignition so her battery is flat as an anorexic's chest.

After this I couldn't be arsed unloading her at night, so left it until the morning.

Unloading her from the bed of the ute and one ramp slips off as I hadn't tied the ramps properly.
Half way down, the second ramp slips off and my lovely, shiny bike bounces off the ramp, off the back of the ute and ends up front wheel on the tailgate with the back on the driveway.

After the coolant tsunami had abated, I pushed her into the carport and headed to work.

When I checked the radiator core seems sound, but the coolant intake pipe on the bottom right of the radiator (as you sit on the bike) has come away from the radiator half way around, the other half is still attached.

My plan is to braze/solder it with these wee fellas and a wee blow torch, anyone have any experience with soldering radiators?

Any hints/tips/do's or dont's to be aware of?

Nakedadder, Gringo and Debz love theirs, must admit after hearing the three of them rave about them It's definitely up there on my list of "Next bike in a couple of years".

If I were still in Glasgow this is an easy one, Kinlochleven.
If I were in London, this is an easy one, Kinlochleven.
If I were in the Northern Hemisphere, this is an easy one, Kinlochleven.
Spotting a pattern here yet?
 :rollin :rollin

Need to find a suitable Kiwi alternative as soon as I can I reckon.

General / First ride in 18 months
« on: 11 June 2015, 07:13:16 PM »
It's been a long wait, between finances, fettling and foc ups by the shipping company, but at long lost 'Bee has cleared customs and sailed through :groan the registration inspection here in Kiwiland.
 :woot :woot

First wee shakedown run last night, man I'm rustier than she was when Nooj got her.

Still, grin has been splitting my face ever since even though we did only go into Auckland city and back, but man I've missed my bike.
Saturday will be spent making her road (il)legal again, swapping out the standard can for the Micron one again, checking the power commander, refitting the hand guards and led rear light...

Longest I've been off her up until now was 4 weeks due to ripped ankle ligaments, even then it was only the right ankle so didn't really need to use it much, but this has been killer.

I'll get some photos of her in front of a decent Kiwi landscape in the next week or so, but I fear I may need a new lid as my smile is likely to crack mine form the inside.

If anyone is looking for me, I'll be out on my bike.

Raym, not sure what they've got atm but Alan Duffus are worth a look at through in Kirkcaldy.
They are a decent bunch, that's who I bought 'Bee from.

I wouldn't give Alistair the steam from my piss, attitude has been foccin' shite the last three times I enquired about a test ride and was looking to buy a bike, vowed that no matter how badly I needed a part he'd never get any more of my cash.

It has it's moments, but the kit on it is worth load more coin than that listing price.

Fazer8 / FZ8 / Re: Chopped the Fazer 8 in for a Tracer....
« on: 02 May 2015, 03:02:33 AM »
No need to go anywhere buddy, loads of us on here have swapped bikes and remained as members.
Saying that, a few of us do end up with another Fazer again for some reason...

Glad your enjoying the new toy, would you be interested in doing a wee comparison post for the site after a couple of months of ownership?
Pros and cons when compared to your Fazer?
I know that there are a few folks looking at trading in for the Tracer, I must admit when I saw one in the flesh last week it looks a tidy wee machine.

Either way, enjoy yourself and stay safe.


Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Ignition removal
« on: 02 May 2015, 02:44:26 AM »
I'm with Mick on this one PieEater, the information is readily available via google.
Given that the first Google hit is a link to our old Yuku site and the second is a link to the post Mick highlighted then I honestly don't see what all the fuss is.
I'd imagine that if it were a stolen bike then the buyer/seller wouldn't take the time to register on a forum (with their IP address available to us behind the scenes) rather just find an internet cafe or coffee shop, use the wifi anonymously and do a google search.

Also, if it had been stolen by professional thieves, I'd suggest that the Yamaha ignition barrel set up is fairly standard across the range, if not the entire bike industry, so if they've done it once...
Also nothing a BFH or an angle grinder couldn't sort.

I appreciate that as a first post it may not be ideal, but introduction etiquette aside I don't see that it warrants such paranoia.
As to your claim about being banned from commenting further, that's just not true.
Mick merely suggested that rather than diverting this post you raise your point in a separate thread.

Up until now we've been of the opinion that once you sign up all the forums functions be available to you rather than "x number of posts" required to insert pictures and the like, but if this is something that the members feel needs to be addressed then we will.

McGroital, welcome to Foc-U, sorry that it's not been the warmest of welcomes so far.
I hope that you don't prove Mick and I wrong and that you enjoy your time here with us, if you post in introductions where you are then there could be a few Foccers locally to help you out.
