No, you're definitely helping - everything you get confused by will confuse everyone else, so best get them sorted now.

The BMF corner access is on my to do list, but yes it will be helpful to copy whatever stuff across.

Yes it is only the bare bones - I want people to add things to the gallery, documents, links, etc etc.

MikeRBiker (and others) has copied some of the stickies from the old site and they're all in the Articles forum for the minute. They will go on another menu item, as will the FZ6 stickies. Once that's set up it will make more sense.

FZ6 / Fazer / Model numbers
« on: 24 December 2010, 03:29:46 PM »
Shamelessly stolen from Rob2222:

I know this model numbers:
FZ6-N == Model 2004-2006 Naked
FZ6-S == Model 2004-2006 with fairing
FZ6-NA == Model 2004-2006 Naked & ABS (Anti Lock System)
FZ6-SA == Model 2004-2006 with fairing & ABS (Anti Lock System)
FZ6-NHG(W) == New S2 Model 2007 Naked (W marks Australian version)
FZ6-SHG(W) == New S2 Model 2007 with fairing (W marks Australian version)
FZ6-NAHG == New S2 Model 2007 Naked & ABS (Anti Lock System)
FZ6-SAHG == New S2 Model 2007 with fairing & ABS (Anti Lock System)

Then there are the US models:

I've found in different Yamaha PDF's too:
FZ6-S (Europe South Africa)
FZ6-SV (Australia)

FZ6-ST (U49/Canada)
FZ6-STC (California)

FZ6-NHG (Europe/South Africa)
FZ6-NHGW (Australia)

FZ6-SS(C) From the US Manual 2004.
FZ6-ST(C) From the US Manual 2005.
FZS6-V(C) From the US Manual 2006.
FZS6-W(C) From the US Manual 2007.
FZS6-X(C) From the US Manual 2008.
FZS6-Y(C) From the US Manual 2009.

This looks for me that in SS and ST the 2nd letter stands for the year.
And then they changed the system and V-Y stands for the year. (What happens 2011??)

Oh dear.

Well, it looks like:

A = ABS (Anti Lock System)
C = California Version
HG = The 2007 new S2 model. (Why H AND G?)
X = The 2007 new S2 model in the US.
N = Naked
S = Fairing
V = Australian Version
W = Australian Version

View the centre's website here: Westend Outdoor Centre

See more pictures here


Gone up for 2010 (£270 per night for £250) hence places work out at be £27 each for the three nights in a luxuriously appointed bunk bed.

Note: spaces have all booked up quickly this year - please don't let this put you off coming - see the sections on camping and dossing down

Normally those who subsequently cannot make it will get their deposit/money back, dependent upon the timing i.e once I have committed to the food spend which is usually around a week prior then refunds will only be made if your place can be passed on.  Otherwise the shortfall has to be covered by those who have attended.  As last year you have plenty of time to book the time off; that said I appreciate "stuff" happens and can't be avoided - be assured I will try me very best to refund you if this happens.

Food/beer will be around £35-£40 per head - the non meat eaters and tee-totalers get a corresponding reduction on the cost.   

This has always been a three night event.  If you want to stay for less then fine, but again I've booked for three nights so you pay for three nights.  Last year (2010) people not staying Sunday did get a discount but only because there was a surcharge this year.  I had considered a system whereby those wanting only two nights paid more per night but less in total than those staying for three but it depends on numbers but its too much hassle for me.

Popping over for one night only? Normally anyone who turns up on the Sunday (or other night but there is unlikely to be any spare bunks on the Fri and Sat) and takes a vacated bunk chucks some money in the kitty.

Saturday Entertainment

Of the musical variety.................will look to book the band again for the Saturday night - Les has offered to bring along his band but Steve says they are shit


You can pay me cheque, Paypal or Bank Transfer (preferred)

send email to and I will forward the details

Please DO NOT use the Yuku PM feature!


Sufficient quantities of alcoholic and non-alcholic are provided


There will be the usual (excellent local butchers) BBQ fayre for the Friday and Saturday nights together with the usual snacks etc

For Sunday night this time will go for the  steak pie, peas, mash, gravy option.

There will be full cooked breakfast on the Sat and Sun mornings.

Camping (NOT FREE)

There are quite large grounds attached to the centre which can be used for camping

The following rates apply:
£5 per person per night, or £10 per tent per night
(payable to me to subsequently pay the proprietor).  On top of the camping fees campers will have to pay the food/beer/entertainment charge.

I have a family type tent (will sleep six) and another Vango tent (sleeps two realistically) which I can erect for anyone who wants to camp but doesn't fancy lugging a tent with them?

Dossing Down Inside (also NOT FREE)

There are two first floor lounge areas in the bunkhouse (one which lends itself perfectly as a overflow sleeping area). There are no beds but I can provide (free of charge - as I am a Lancastrian not a Yorkshireman) a limited number of air beds.

I have cleared this with the proprietor, however, as he is a proper Yorkshireman, there will be a £5 per person per night charge

This is an alternative to camping at similar cost but all you need to bring is a sleeping bag. This option will be limited to a maximum of ten people (due to space and I only have five airbeds and only two of them currently work - this should be resolved for 2011 and I can look at getting some more or even borrowing some camp beds).
