Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / New Battery Time
« on: 15 October 2022, 07:46:41 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.

Well the old girl is 19yrs old and due its yearly service (by me)
So i thought i would get a carb rebuild kit including diaphragms and give the carbs a thorough clean up
New oil and filter and spark plugs and fuel filter

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Valve clearance check time
« on: 08 June 2022, 07:48:56 pm »
Well my old 2003 fazer 1000 has just crept over 24500 miles so i suppose i will have to check the valve clearances very soon (not bad for an old girl )

Anything you guys/girls can suggest i get before i start ?

Once i have done them i will have to re balance the carbs i presume ?

I normally use edge for browsing and if i am not logged into the site the header image is blue and shows properly
Yet when i am logged in the header image isnt showing
I can add the image src codes for both if needed but just wondered if this was just an edge problem ?


Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / 03 1000 cut out and wont start
« on: 01 July 2021, 07:14:09 pm »
Hey newbie here  :D
I took my fazer 1000 out the other morning and it only went about 20 yards and cut out, nothing when i pushed the starter button and the meta alarm fob wouldnt do anything
Battery is fine in the fob and there is power getting to the alarm unit.
Read alot of threads about the alarms so decided to remove it.
Was a bit of a faff but managed to remove all the black wires from the alarm, then its time to rejoin the wires  :rolleyes
Managed to get the starter to work but wouldn't fire up.
After a bit of playing and wiring diagram searching i worked out where the other wires should go (hope its correct lol )
But now the starter circuit cutoff relay is playing up as there is no live for the starter at the relay now, also have no neutral light showing.
I have ordered a replacement relay so awaiting arrival to fit and test (will keep you informed)
If i have missed something then any help will be welcomed

cheers lads and lasses
