Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / choke cable problem
« on: 11 September 2013, 09:16:22 PM »
I managed to buy a used switch asm for a choke lever, but the choke is very heavy to pull and it feels like the lever will break, the cable has some stiction but not over tight, I tried lubing the cable with no luck so I bought a new pattern cable and that feels rough, I haven't fitted it yet. also when I bought the switch it came with an extra item but I don't know where it goes, my original switch has nothing like it either, here is a picture of the offending item

any help would be appreciated

General / Any builders on here?
« on: 15 August 2013, 11:33:14 PM »
I'm after some advise on moving an internal wall in my house, I will post some pictures later when I'm back at home and I can plug my phone into my laptop, I think what I have in plan may work but don't want to go ahead till I have some professional help.

I saw this mod on I think the us fz1 site where you link cylinders 1-4 and 2-3 with some fuel pipe, the original mod was using some T pieces but it was mentioned that you get the same effect by just linking as I have mentioned, I know my idle sounds different, as to smoothness I haven't noticed any difference, perhaps I may have to try the mod with the T pieces.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / just as i am about to go on holiday
« on: 13 August 2013, 07:40:46 PM »
I find my logbook is missing, I find out that you can get a temporary one from dvla, then my battery decides to call it a day, on Sunday of all days, did a ride to Thorpe park on Monday and battery was US so had to bump start it, and it was the same when I got back. I had the corbin seat on and I found it was uncomfortable if you sat where your ass should be as the footpegs and handlebars were now in the wrong place, I would have been doubled up before I got to dover so no biking holiday for me this year.

« on: 05 August 2013, 10:03:42 PM »
I have been thinking on getting a HID kit for my bike, what do you think of this kit on eBay? or would I be better off going for a 35 watt kit as a 55 watt kit may be overkill?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Just fitted like for like used brake discs
« on: 22 July 2013, 04:26:04 PM »
I have just fitted a pair of used discs on my bike, after fitting the right disc was touching the calliper and the left was perfectly central which was weird, in the end I had to space my right calliper inwards to fix the problem, the discs were fitted in the same way as they came off. Any ideas as to why this happened? 

and I got a bit of a shock

and the collar was also a bit past it

thankfully the other bearings look ok so I will give them a good clean and fresh grease, I bought the bike like this and have gradually been fixing things as and when I have time and the money, problem is do I risk getting a second hand part?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / my next job will be
« on: 07 July 2013, 10:12:01 PM »
to fit this

in place of my original slightly untidy shock

just got to wait for the new dog bones and a cobalt drill bit to turn up
the shock I got was off a new bike that was never ridden on the road, it was bought as a race bike, I got it off eBay for £82

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / rear caliper
« on: 04 July 2013, 06:24:16 PM »
my calliper pistons have gone a bit rusty, so I need to rebuild the calliper with new pistons/seals and pads, the question is does anyone do stainless pistons without breaking the bank? I have found some piston/seal sets on eBay but there is no mention of their material

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Screen question
« on: 01 July 2013, 03:46:37 PM »

For Sale & Wanted / givi e45 panniers/top box for swap
« on: 30 June 2013, 10:02:23 PM »
I have a couple of givi e45 panniers which I would like to exchange for some e36 panniers, structurally they are good but they have the usual marks from use, one was used as a top box  and I had a high level light fitted on top, i filled those holes in, the other has the securing strap inside the box, both boxes are in perfectly good working order just that they are a bit too big for me and my bike. the keys are different between the top boxes
the box on the right of the picture has the securing straps still inside, the one on the left is the one I filled in some holes

I don't think it will move much as it is solid, but I need to get some e36 panniers as at the moment I have e45 which are huge and worse so as I had to space them out to clear bodywork etc

as you can see the width is huge


Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / fork seals question
« on: 24 June 2013, 04:55:30 PM »
are the fork seals on the fazer thou a big job or does everything come apart easily? as usual Haynes and the genuine manual don't help a great deal, it has been a few years since I last fitted fork seals
