FZS600 Fazer / Wire wheel conversion
« on: 19 August 2017, 08:26:54 pm »
Who's done it,  were did you get the parts, off what model etc..

Just you you know...I just started building a custom build..

General / 2001 Fzs 600 wire wheel conversion
« on: 19 August 2017, 07:31:55 pm »
Who's tried it , what happened, what parts did you source..

I'm starting a 2001 fzs 600 project

2 way track shock works great on street too, absolutely stunning mod

brand new with box and papers service book etc done a couple of hundred miles

easily as good as ohlins, im 14 stone and it works amazingly the difference from stock is massive, £540 new inviteing offers  can post if nessercary




near mint, advertising all over the place, this is one fazer that will sell extreamely quick ride the rest then come buy the best

all works properly as intended

 easily one of the nicest fz1 on the road with the exceptional colour scheme, with nice sensible mods owned by dedicated enthusiast

20bhp up on stock but feels like alot more,.... test drive similar age  r1 this is as quick.  runs perfect ..

hpi clear 3 owners

brand new mot sailed through tax till jan 2015


de cat mid pipe carbon akrapovic tail
bmc air cleaner 300 ish miles old (fitted) with air box mod
r and g tail tidy ,stock tail included and spare numberplate

d211 dunlop 190/55/ sticky rear tyre near as new
continental contimontion front has 1000 miles left on it , there a match made in heaven and can recommend these two tyres enough
19000 miles on clock but bike looks runs and rides like 1000! except a microscopic nic in the paint on the tank that you will struggle to see

this is a £4800 bike all day long im as theres a nic in the paint and i cant find the service history im inviting offers im in no hurry to sell, im only getting a brand new fz1 any way

i can e.mail pics easily enough




i also have a nitron 2 way shock new with all paper work see my listings

I always been on the 1000, gen 2 first non superbike ive had, and i think i may be converted, certainly open a few eyes in the fast group at brands on stock suspension..

 nearly got the 150 at the back wheel, prob a month away now all mods done except the actual re flash..

turns out nitron sent the wrong does fit on the left hand side foot rest hanger

it does not fit on the passenger foot peg mount, and i cant find a picture any were on the net

can any one help

just go test ride 1, simples,

i come from gsxr 1000k6 to a gen 2 and am full ivanising at the moment and suspension after that,

i brought mine cos my mrs did not like ballistic gsxr1000 rides cos pillions to high,

i find the gen 2 really comfortable i got a home made 1/4 turn quick action throttle too, by far the best mod so far and only a few pence to make,

i really starting to enjoy mine now im appreciating it for what it is rather than wanting it to be some thing else, just about to tour europe for few days two up too on it inc nurenberg ring...its a true all rounder

im looking at buying the £500 track shock very soon, but ive found very little reviews on them, im gonna keep the box etc and resell it when i get rid of the bike,

the standard shock is dire and well past its sell buy date, im adding the 190/55 tyre to when i change the shock as my rear tyres shot too, i recently did a fast group at brands and did well but was lacking grip when exiting corners,,

would love to hear from nitron users both good and bad reviews

is that the 2 way shock £500 jobbie, of the 1way cheaper one

im about to buy on soon my self .... looking at the 2 way

phone michael in the work shop at ktech, he will rebuild and refurb your stock for for about 2oo with correct spring and oil, or go for the up grade on stock fork for about 450. he can rebuild the rear too, some people say its sealed and not possible he assured me this is not the case the rear was 140

these prices are tailor made refurbs for your weight and usage requirements if the shocks are pre removed from the bike

i was instantly offered a 10% discount too,

 im getting my forks done soon for the up graded front, and a 2 way nitron shock, i dont fancy the r1 up grade, michael assured me its not nessercary if you up grade the front its more than capable of fast circuit use, and to be honest im already doing fast track days on knackerd stock shocks so i imagine the differance will be great,

ktech are suberb

just hope theres no back firing

youll be amazed at the perfectly good uses wd 40 has i clean all sorts with it.. it cuts through grease and crud better than any detergent ive ever used

spray in to a rag and wipe your chain ready to re lube is also another ace use

cleaning of "grease/lube fling"  of the body work from the chain is a sinch too, not to mention a superb wheel and brake dust cleaner, NOTE not the brakes just the dust off the wheels

heres mine

just got it theres plenty to be done

new tyres

tail tidy

quick action throttle

front and rear suspension

150bhp at back wheel full ivanise treatment, ecu, p.c5, air filter, air box mod, de cat possible better slip on

3 piece luggage


Depending on the year, the R1 forks are fully adjustable.

I just ditched my FZ1 forks for 08 R1 forks for the adjustability.

thats correct hi and slow speed damping too

the fz1 forks are very soft very basic and only have the most basic of adjustment compression in one leg and rebound in the other, my pal will not believe it though,


Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / fz1 r1 r6 forks can any one settle this arguement
« on: 20 February 2014, 06:29:53 pm »
I say the fz1 forks are totally different to r6 and r1, i know they are, but just to settle the arguement,........

my pal recons from the factory the fz1 comes with r6 forks, i say the 25 year old puppy should stick to his old c90 and bandit 600
i recon they share no similar parts and are completely different, although they can be easily made to fit

mtc, its plenty loud sounds nice, not my first choice it came with the bike so im not moaning, although i can feel a yoshi calling

its actually quite palletable

Im getting  ready for the full ivan 150bhp at the back wheel treatment ready for spring, so far ivan sells them straight from the usa cheapest as far as i can see they work out 260 ish ready mapped inc post and  impoert taxes,

Im new to the fazer scene, but very keen on engine tuning

 Are you an ivan tuning engineer coming to the uk i have a 2007 with a mtc slip on can, Ive just come from a stage 1 tuned gsxr 1000k6 so the fazer feels asthmatic, id like the full monty done to mine 148/150 would be a lovely target at the back wheel

id love to find a uk place to get this tuning done, not sure if my cans suitable this post has a pic of my bike, is the can ok, what sort of money am i looking at my bike has no other power mods, but id love the full up grade

I am down in Kent right now and a guy doing some work on my brother's house recomended Tagg racing in Ashford. Anyone had any dealings? They are ment to be good at set ups and also dyno work. Was tempted to get my sag set up front and rear as its a bitch to do on your own LOL

care full there part of laguna maidstone and although there ok if things go right they will wipe there hands of you when they dont take your money and run

 BEWARE...BE VERY AWARE, they done me for £1300 and a gsxr 1000k6, supposed to do  a mastercylinder replacement as a V.O.S.A safety recall (shoulda been free) and i never saw my bike ever again until my neighbour eventually brought it from the salvage company. it was damaged them salvaged by them,  then salvage co sold it to my Neighbour,

Id avoid all the bike shops under the LAGUNA MAIDSTONE BANNER, as there all the same there well over priced too at least 30%

just do your reasearch on this group of bike shops the amount of complaints about them on the net is crazy there are 1000s if you look hard enough to find them
