Isn't it just easier to call them the air cooled fazers?

You have me all curious now because I was also misguided and thought we had thundercat engines. What do we actually have?

you have a Fazer engine that shares some gearbox components with a thundercat, It was never a "detuned" sports bike engine, which is the common misconception, it was an engine designed for the fazer

So after all these years of having a  :faz  with " :faz carbs" then to be told that they are in actual fact "Thundercat carbs" Then to be told that they REALLY are  :faz  carbs that were made specifically for the  :faz  to fit on a  :faz  and not on a Thundercat..Good, think I have got it now, but to be honest I think Thundercat carbs sounds better than  :faz  carbs so I think we should just call them "kiddon Thundercat carbs" that want to be  :faz  carbs.........With the air cooled engine.


hope that clears that up....going for a drink now, think i need one.   :lurk
Davie.........yes I am that man.

technicaly the bike is both air and water cooled,you need air flow to cool the water in the radiator,no air flow and the engine will over heat

Just want to stamp on this before it becomes an 'established truth'.
The FZS600 engine is water cooled, the fins are a 'styling addition' and have no function (I think they harp back to the old 1980s FAZER 750).
The 'air-flow is needed' argument is also false: If you take a stationary FZS600 and run the engine for 30 minutes guess what happens .... The radiator fan starts!! :rollin

Probably doesn't help to have the bike lumped in as a derivative of the Thundercat as per the Haynes manual?

And the fan draws in air to cool the water!  :)

and that is the answer to my question,you need air flow to cool the engine,no air no cooling no matter where the air comes from
