Can't add more than 4 pics ffs?
Reduce the size of the individual images, then you should be able to add more. They dont need to be 0.5Mb each, more like 50-100kb.

I had this same screen on my FZS, worked fine, better than stock imho.

Something hasent been assembled correctly by the sounds of it. Gnasher may have some input, but you should NOT have had to modify or create a work around to reassemble the forks. Did you follow the manual? -

The way I put forks tops back on when the spring pre-load makes it hard, is to place a bit of cardboard/carpet under the bottom of the fork to protect the end and then use my body weight to push down with one hand then and then with the other hand make a wide arc (1/2 of a single turn) on the spanner to get the thread started.

Haynes never made one for the gen2/Fz1, so unless you want to spend silly money on a genuine workshop manual, just go online -

For Sale & Wanted / Re: For Sale: 2003 FZS600
« on: 14 August 2022, 10:31:05 pm »
If anyone wants to weigh in on what they think it's worth, or other good places to advertise, I'd appreciate it.
Bikemarket is showing 2003/28k is worth £2000, yours has a 3rd of that mileage, so should be worth more -


Autotrader has a few ranging from 3.3k miles to 15k miles with prices varing from £2300 to £3k, although there is some joker on there trying to sell a crash damaged, then rebuilt (albit very nicely) for 5k -

Another option is to modify a set of the original metal AIS pipes by cutting them 2" above the ends and folding them over. I have a set of these -

As I said, consumer law and distance selling regulations apply here. Clearly they were not fit for purpose to the point of being outright dangerous.

How did you pay for the hoses, was it credit card? if so call your card co, explain the issue and they will do a visa chargeback, simples.

@Gaz66, welp you should have done your research mister -

When its something that you rely on to say your life, even one bad review should give you pause. Their attitude and reponse just compounds the issue.

General / Re: Warning ** Wezmoto shop**
« on: 06 August 2022, 08:41:08 pm »
@Wezmoto, this is not the way to treat customers or protect the reputation of your business that i would have to a assume you actually give a sh*t about.

@Gaz66, what method did you pay and and how long ago was it..? distance and consumer law both applies in this instance.

But you'd expect better from a suspension specialist like K-Tech.
Yes indeed, you should feed that back to them.

Well as Gnasher would presumably say, thats what you get for not getting genuine.

We can source any bike components in the UK. :thumbup
Taking Gaz's point further -

The main issue is even before the bollox that is brexit, HMRC would come after us for VAT and import tax that makes buying ANYTHING from OUTSIDE the UK expensive -
  • On all items you pay VAT @ 20%
  • On goods below £135 there is no import duty
  • On goods above £135 there is import duty @ 2.5%
So -
  • A part that is worth £134 (said figures which includes the shipping cost) you pay 20% VAT = £160.8
  • A part that is worth £135 (said figures which includes the shipping cost) you pay 20% VAT = £167.37
As most parts I have seen on ebay where the seller is in the US, they are slapping on rediculous shipping charges. We then have to pay VAT and import duty on those, for example -
  • The part is being sold for ($95.94, plus $107.04 shipping) $202.98/£168.35.
  • Once you add the VAT and import duty your looking at £213.02.
And at that point unless your really desperate you might as well buy new or hunt around for a used part. And just for completness I found the same part from a UK seller for £109 inc shipping - Now if the US seller wasnt taking the piss on shipping and there were no used alternatives in the UK, only then I would be worth it buying from outside the UK.

Wouldn't clear vinyl do the job? Just buy a large sheet and cut it down to fit where needed?
There was some damage  from the previous owner so if possible I would like to opaque decals/protector if possible.

And going DIY is one solution I dont know how accuratrly I could cut it as the tailpaice has many angles.

Piece of scrap chequer plate, some ingenuity…..sorted :lol
Dont know about the checker plate, but some black anodized aluminum and the base of a pillion seat/cover with some foam to seal -

Seems a bit pricy @ £170 when you can get generic seat covers for less than half that.

Does anyone know of where I can find some decails or paint proection for the rear tail plastic. Im looking to protect the paint directly behind the pillon seat when I carry stuff on the back.

If ya wanna try some, PM me, send a stamped 2nd class envelope.  :thumbup
So I bought and fitted the missing 2x pair of ant-squeeze plates and applied a thin line of the Silicon grease Gaz sent me and the rattle is for the most part gone!

So came across this and thought what a cool idea - (Code: 670403 00 01). Has anyone ever fitting this or something like this..?

For Sale & Wanted / Re: FZS 1000 Fazer Spares, Mods and Tools for Sale

Chain splitter/rivetter tool.  Very good condition.                                                             £15
Got pics of this mike..? would interested if its better than the worn one I have.

  • Most common is aftermarket pad, dimensions most are slightly smaller. 
  • Worn pad retaining shim/s these can loose their tension effect over time, allowing the pads to move.
  • Worn retaining pins and/or a combination of some or all of these.   

So I checked the EBC and SBS pads, need to find out what the OEM pads dimensions are to compare -
EBC FS380 (W - 69)     SBS 634 (69.2)
EBC FS380 (H - 50.4)    SBS 634 (51.03)
EBC FS380 (T - 8.7)    SBS 634 (8.8 )

The tension plates dont have a lip on the sides of the celiper to sit on, so the whole pads+clip assembly just rotates/pivots on the pins. As for the tension they are spot on, so in conclusion nothing wrong with the clips and the both pins were perfect, no wear on them at all.
So I have put some of the EBC anti-squeel back clip/shims on the pads, but dont think these will do anything for the rattle, but worth a try. I have also carefull put a bead of  some of the expensive silicon greese that Gaz66 sent me on the sids of the pads. Is these both do nothing then the next step is to replace the calipers.

And on the subject of replacement calipers @Gnasher, which year/s XJR/FJ calipers will be a direct bolt on as I am not buying another set of FZ1 calipers due to the inherant wear issue.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: FZ1 Front Brake Pads Rattling!!
« on: 29 July 2022, 09:01:39 am »
My front pads are rattling around in the calipers on my 2012 FZ1N. Ive done 1800 miles and am using the bike for work everey day. When I go over a bump they rattle and clonk. If I take them out and copper grease the back and edges I'm hoping this will cure the problem. Its still under warranty at the moment so worse case it can go back
Hey John, as I see you still on the forum and posted recently, can I ask what was the dealer/yamaha's response? and how did you fix it in the end?
