FZS600 Fazer / Re: Width of handlebars / front indicators
« on: 24 May 2020, 11:58:40 am »
Thanks for the replies, should have said my fzs 600 went though by the skin of its teeth, and it was the indicators that I had to watch out for which is why I'm curious about the width. Most bikes seem to be wider than the fazer for some reason!

FZS600 Fazer / Width of handlebars / front indicators
« on: 24 May 2020, 10:45:37 am »
Hi all,

I wondered if someone with a fzs600 might be able to put a tape measure across the front indicator and handlebars for me. I am looking for a new bike and need one that will squeeze through my gate.

Thanks alot in advance

Yes, been thinking that too! It's just what to get? Maybe a FZ6 or Fazer8.... Whatever it is it will have to go through my side gate which will just take the FZS600.

Brilliant, I live just inside the South Circular so will need ulez complaint soonish. So I'll probably go for a late model 2004/5 which by the sounds of it should both qualify. Does anyone know if all there is a cut off year wise? I mean would an earlier one have more NOX and not comply... I ask just in case I find an early gem! Thanks all.

That's good to hear. Did you have to register a cert of conformity with TFL? Do you know if the NOX figure is on your V5? Sorry for the questions but keen to know what I need to check if I buy a 1000. My 600 not ulez friendly!

Hello all,

I saw on this forum someone getting a Certificate of Conformity for their fzs1000. I am thinking of getting one and live just inside the proposed ulez zone. Does anyone know what I need to be looking out for if I buy one... which year/ model etc? Don't want to get caught out!!

Thanks a lot!

Yes, well spotted! Thanks, looks like a different version but to do the same job. Brilliant

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Front end wobble, any suggestions?

Yes I had a wobble too then replaced front tyre and had the wheel balanced. Good as gold now... much nicer to ride.

FZS600 Fazer / Speedo Cable routing - recognise this?
« on: 05 April 2020, 12:57:53 pm »

Still trying to get the right bits to route my speedo cable properly but cannot find a part number or where to get 'S' from the attached drawing. Is this an OEM clamp on all fzs600's? Do other owners have this on their bike?

Thanks again for help.

Hi all

Sorry for the delay... been struggling to log in (goggle chrome - using bing now)!

Thanks for the replies, does anyone happen to know how many wires are inside the speedo cable if I do need to solder them? Ideally an aftermarket replacement if anyone know where I might find one?

Thanks again, much appreciated.

So looks like my speedo cable has been routed incorrectly and I found it being sliced in half by one of the front discs. Does anyone know it the cable is its own part that I can replace or does it belong to the (expensive) sensor assembly?

2002 FZS600

Many thanks....

So I too asked Yamaha if they could give me any NOX info so I could apply for an exemption for my '02 fzs600. The NOX limit for TfL exemption is 0.15g/km, You can see from their reply below that they reckon it might be slightly over if compared to 'similar' bikes.

From Yamaha:

[size=inherit]Thank you for your enquiry.[/size][/color]We do however regret to advise that only models constructed to comply with European Whole Vehicle Type Approval, regulations that were not fully introduced until 2003, will qualify for a CoC.Due to the age of your machine it was not subject to European Whole Type Approval testing, in this instance we can only advise the NOx output for the Model code, therefore a machine of that model of a similar age, which was 0.185 (g/km).We apologise we are not able to be of assistance.[/si

Thanks all. I'll stick some on and see how I get on, just for a little extra piece of mind especially in London with as you say all the Kamikaze riders - desperate to get infront on their mopeds and coming from every angle.

Thanks Robbo, Good thought regarding wind ripping them off, was thinking about adjustable ones but yeah they might just come off. For the sake of a few quid I reckon I'll get some fixed ones. Just wondering if outside edge is best position as the inside seems to be where the 'wasted' bit of the mirror is.

I know this subject has come up before, but I'm struggling to find some conclusive reports on whether they are any good, and where to put them on the 02-FZS600 standard mirror? I am about 6ft tall and don't have a huge jacket to get past, but seem to have big old blind spot. Thanks in advance.

FZS600 / Wurth Dry Chain Lube
« on: 25 November 2017, 09:54:13 pm »
Hello again,

as a new FZS owner, I have decided to try the Wurth Dry chain lube. Trouble is there are no useful instructions on it as to when to replenish the application. Does anyone have any information on this. 500miles, 1000 miles, after a downpour etc.

I have no prior experience of this stuff so all help gratefully received. Thanks.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Has my bike been lowered?
« on: 13 November 2017, 01:16:25 pm »
Hello again,

So I looked up the seat height and various sources cite 790mm or 31.1 inches. Having measured mine today it is a tiny bit over this, but is probably because I have an after market seat. In any case, it is not lower than specified which is good news!

Thanks again for all your input.

Thanks all for getting back to me. The Jack-up kit sounds interesting! I haven't had time to measure dog bones or panel height yet but will report back when I do. I read somewhere the seat height dimensions so I'll measure that too. I suspect I'm just not used to a lowish bike compared to xt600?

FZS600 Fazer / Has my bike been lowered?
« on: 07 November 2017, 04:32:57 pm »

Hello all,

This is my first post having just picked up my fazer at the weekend. I've found lots of posts about seat lowering but I'm 6ft and having never had a fazer before it seems very low to me. Maybe this is how they are, I wondered if anyone has any advice for me on how I could tell?

Thanks and looking forward to joining the community.
