I had an issue with my EXUP valve pulley today, and now require a new one.  If anyone has one lying about, please let me know.

Also  If anyone has any spare EXU cable outers lying about I'd like them as well,  so I can send them off for new inners before I take mine off.

Hi Folks

I've only had my 1000 for a year now,  and I was going to be getting stuck into the EXUP valve over the winter to make sure it was fine for this years riding.  But I ended up in hospital and had to have surgery on my back so I've been pretty immobile since the end of October and just getting back to normal now. 

I was taking my bike for an MOT yesterday and noticed the 7k revs at ignition problem,  So I asked if when doing the MOT and service they could look at the EXUP valve.  Got bike back last night and the 7k revs issue was still there. I thought I'd have a look and see if they had even bothered to look at the valve or not this morning before I phone them to complain,  and the 3 bolts on the cover had all been off recently and had grease on them so they would come off ok. I took the cover off and the cables were a bit slack, and the valve wasn't aligned correctly, so I thought I'd have a look at removing the whole thing and checking it was greased properly.

I removed the bolt from the centre of the pulley ok,  but was then unable to remove the pully.  It was stuck tight.  I could turn the pulley ok, it wasn't seized completely, just unable to remove it.  When I was trying to pry it off,  I ended up breaking off one of the forks that you use to lock it,  so as well as trying to find out how to remove the pulley,  I'll also need a new one.  Does anyone have one lying about?  or am I going to get shafted from Yamaha?

I then had a look at the cables, and one of them is frayed badly so will need a new set of cables as well.  I've checked on ebay,  and only cables I can find are a set of original oem ones,  which are going for 150 ish.  I've read on here about the venhill ones, but I'd rather not take the current ones off and send them away,  so unless I can find some decent second hand outers that I can use to get new inners,  I'm going to get fleeced for these as well.

It's even in the fastest colour. Now to convince the wife I'm buying it for my son, then when it comes say it's too nice for him to play with..

For Sale & Wanted / FZS 600 - Sliver 1999 -now sold
« on: 20 April 2013, 09:30:29 pm »

After an impulsive upgrade to a Gen 1 Fazer 1000, I've got to sell my Fazer 600.  Its a 1999 T reg in silver with just over 30K miles.

12 months MOT, K+N air filter, Oxford heated grips, Givi Rack.  New front road 3CT with less than 30 miles on it. Rear road 2CT still has a few thousand miles wear left in it. Down pipes were replaced about 4 years ago.

I had no storage 2 years ago, so it has spent 1 winter not under cover. Due to this, its a little tatty cosmetically.  I had a slow lowside on the bike and there was some damage to the front fairing and scrapes to the exhaust, as shown in the pictures. Usual corrosion to the engine.

Located in Airdrie, central Scotland. Bike is priced for its condition and a quick sale.  I'm looking for £700  and if it goes for very close to that,  I've also got a Silver Kappa 46L top box to go with the bike.
