It will have been the resolution, so if they were 4k ( 3840 x 2160) for example, the forum may not have permitted that size.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: New Battery Time
« on: 23 May 2024, 08:54:40 pm »
Just wanted to put this out there for anyone else wanting a new battery....
My one finally died (been on the bike for about 6/7 years so not done bad)
So i looked online and found Tanya batteries, and ordered a new YT14B-BS thursday evening and it was delivered friday lunchtime
Excellent service and cheaper than Halfords who couldnt deliver until next week.
so what was the make and mode of the battery that was on the bike..?

The throttle on the FZS1000 is quite sensetive, and one the common issues that will make that issue wors is if the drive chain is too slack and/or the cush drive rubbers behind the rear sprocket carrier are worn.

Regarding your suspension, have to checked and set the static sag and then adjusted the damping to suit..?

Welp Harris in Hertford are shutting down, so I had to email PDQ instead, waiting for the email with the parts and prices.


And I have put my own Arai RX7 full face helmet inside the rucksack I have here, and closed the zip to secure it.  Just trying to help you out, that's all.
My intent was not to be adversarial, just responding to what info is front of me etc. Ill drop you a PM.

Unless I am miss understanding, that rucksack only allows storage on the outside, not the inside. I need it to be out of sight and inside the backpack unfortunatly. And I found one link that shopw the capacity at 25ltr -

I ended up buying a 5.11 Tach-24, but I am still inside the return period. So out of interest, whats the exact make of the knox backpack..?

There are enough repleacement headlight units on ebay still, that your easier just to swap it out etc.

I'll take some rough measurements from my side in the meantime.
Right here you go, as roughly center of each bolt as I could manage - 

Hi. are these all gen 2 parts ?.. looking for gen 1 dog bones.
Gen1, also there are no 'dog bones' on the Gen2, but rather 2x triangular shaped plates.

That sounds like a plan. I will get to the garage and measure it and let you know as soon as possible thanks

Ebay would seem the logical place to start, failing that

Some pics of the engine when it was open, and you can see the damage on the old gear where the dogs jumped out and grinded the gear.
And even wallered out the holes, thats some wear...

The above items have been sitting, boxed up in my sitting room for over a year, so at this point I just need them parts gone  - so any reasonable offers welcome.

Why has no one bought this already..?

exactly that. So out of sight, out of mind.

Carrying the helmet in the backpack is for when Im OFF the bike, I recently got refused entry to a building for just trying to walk in while carrying it.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Ohlins YA-009 rear shock for fz1: fitment
« on: 11 May 2024, 06:55:08 pm »
So this was the only place I could fit the pre-load adjuster and even then it was a tight fight. routing the braided hose from the shock to the adjuster was also a pain, I had to route it under the ABS unit, between the unit and the protective plastic splash cover.

Can I ask if anyone else has fitted an ohlins to their FZ1 and do they have photos..?

Before I get on the phone to Infinitiy, Sportsbikeshop etc, I thought I would check on here and see if anyone suggest a backpack that you can fit a helmet inside..? Im guessing 30L or bigger. Budget is £100 and it would be handy if it has zippable side pockets.

My old Hien Gericke backpack was a 31L and I could just about fit a helmet inside.
