It doesn't really work on my iPad, Unfazed - but, is that a link to "" ?.

That's the site I use for checking out changes resulting from sprocket and tyre swaps with different teeth and wheel sizes etc.

Chillin out on the sofa, tying to sleep, so I'm listening to a bit of Olafur Arnalds - great for relaxing.

The only time I've ever been to a concert when you could hear a pin drop between tunes/compositions (and the audience weren't asleep), soulful, moving stuff - but definitely what I'd listen to in the garage/shed/workshop, or in the car  :)

Forgot to let you lads know, I uploaded a file on the difference changing sprockets or tyres will make to the speed of the Fazer 1000.
It is an XLSX file which allows you to enter the Sprocket sizes or tyre sizes and and see the difference it makes to the speed in each gear.I found it I think on the FZ1 site on the net a good while ago and modified it to make it easier to follow, hope the original owner does not mind.
Forgot all about it until some one asked a question about sprocket changes on Facebook.It is under useful stuff in the downloads section

Just heard a Bob Dylan record on Radio 2.

Is that voice deliberate or is it the best he can do?.

What a racket.

Everyone to his/her own but listen to "she belongs to me" or " shelter from the storm"you might change your mind,then again.  :groan

Looks nice. The manuals say 25k miles, but you dont have to adhere to that. For example, I change oil and filters every year regardless, cos I want the bike to run at its best all the time. Plus if problems start, then you can put any association with those items to one side straight away. Really, you can set your own service schedule. Thats not a standard seat, does it have a makers name on it?

Put it all back together  today,got to admit I put the original nut and washer back on,I never gave it a thought 'till I seen the post,hopefully it'll be ok,I've never put a new nut on any other bike,but obviously it's the thing to do.While I think about it does anyone have a problem putting the rear wheel back on their own?(gen 2) I always have a right game with that poxy caliper bracket,by now you're probably thinking "can this joker do anything?" I really don't normally have probs with working on my bikes,in actual fact I enjoy it,I only do basic servicing and cosmetic jobs,I wouldn't start stripping engines and box's etc.It's just that this particular job has been a ball ache what with not putting the cush drive rubbers in far enough and then couldn't shift the sprocket nut,can't win 'em all ay?still thanks for your replies it's always reassuring to know there's someone who'll help you out. :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup
