General / Cx500. .....
« on: 01 January 2016, 01:36:52 pm »
My lad has decided to refurbish a cx500. I think he has a bit of a soft spot as we have pictures of him sat on one I had years ago. Anyway the one he's bought had been partially converted to a trike and has lumps of the frame missing, I know it's a long shot but I don't suppose anyone has a cx500 frame getting in their way? Happy new year all.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Coolant cap wanted
« on: 08 June 2015, 09:43:01 pm »
Oh well I bled my back brakes and noticed I don't seem to have a cap on the coolant expansion bottle, I've never taken it off because the level has never moved and it's full now but no lid? Anyway cutting to the chase so to speak does anyone have one kicking about surplus?

Ok I know that this has been asked before but I can't find it.  I'm pondering over getting a dslr camera but I know nothing about them I always just use my phone. I would typically use it for holiday pics and a few scenery pics when I'm out and about.  Do any of you have any advice of what to look for what to avoid etc. I may choose to buy used initially to keep costs down.

Ok so I started my bike up this afternoon everything working ok, then it was just as if I'd turned it off, the engine stopped and the lights went out. The only thing that worked was the hazard lights with ignition on or in park position , the indicators in the on position and the parking lights in the parking ignition switch position. After twiddling everything worked again for about two minutes and then the fault returned as before.
Currently I have a supply to the fuses under the seat that goes on and off with the ignition switch, all lights ,horn, starter etc don't work except the indicators/ hazards work as they should. I had to call it a day earlier and I'm going to resume tomorrow. So has anyone had this before and if so what was it?


General / Bleeding brakes...
« on: 10 February 2015, 09:18:30 pm »
As in the title, I've fitted new brake pipes and filled the resovouir with fluid but pumping the lever does nothing to move the fluid if that makes sense. Question is any suggestions or tips. I've left a bleed screw open and fluid in the resovouir hoping it will bleed itself.

General / Fzs1000 crash bungs/ bobbins
« on: 03 February 2015, 08:27:15 pm »
I got some used yamaha crash bungs from ebay but they didn't have any bolts with them,  looking at the existing ones I think I need about another 10 -15mm
So that would be 140mm x8mm  and 140mm x10mm twice. Anyone got them fitted and do my guesstimates sound about right?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Fzs1000 brake pad shim
« on: 17 June 2014, 09:02:02 pm »
I've just stripped and cleaned my front brakes whilst my wheels were out having new tyres fitted and I seem to have a steel front brake pad shim missing, has anybody got one kicking about that they don't need or is it a trip to the dealers.

General / Black is Black
« on: 19 March 2014, 03:15:38 pm »
Ok not the song....I've just bought a new old stock Yamaha hugger for my gen1. The problem is they only had one in silver, so I thought I'd give it a quick rough up with scotch bright, a coat of grey primer and then a coat of black from the motor factors. Have I missed anything or is this a plan?

Has anyone had dealings with the above? They have a grey thou for sale that looks good, price / mileage/ etc but all the reports I've seen on the net from people seem to suggest they're not very good to deal with. I know I should just keep looking as I'm in no hurry but I keep coming back to it.
Any comments or experiences appreciated.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / What is an FZS1000 gen1??
« on: 24 October 2013, 08:04:02 am »
Ok then I keep looking at 2003-05 thous because I like the logo on the tank rather than the text, but I can never be sure if a bike is original or not frames are different colours is that an age thing? Engines are different colours is that an age thing some silver ones have a black mudguard and tail, as do some red ones. The red ones somtimes have a black fairing as well, some say ex up 1000 on the fairing some don't? My foxeye 600 has graphics on the tail should they be on a thou? At the moment I'm just looking but by the year end/ early next year hopefully prices will have bottomed and if I can find the right one at the right price then who knows, but what is the right one???:-\

Cheers Andy

« on: 23 June 2013, 10:22:13 am »
Hi all, I'm going to try fitting the 1000 rear shock to my 600 if I can pick one up at the right price. So really I'm looking for someone who has upgraded their shock and has a std one cluttering the place up. Local ish to Hull would be ideal. Any offers??

General / Ex up valve
« on: 02 January 2013, 05:28:49 pm »
Does anyone know if all exup valves are set up the same? As I don't have an exup valve on mine (fzs600) I don't know a lot about them but my sons yzf750 has one and I'm unsure how to check it or set it up. Any advice or tips would be much appreciated.

FZS600 Fazer / Crash bungs / bobbins
« on: 17 November 2012, 05:07:47 pm »
Hi   I'm thinking of buying some crash bungs before I wish I had  :\  I've read that the single bolt ones are poor and the multi point ones are better. Does anyone have any advice (I know don't drop it  :lol ) on which are best which should be avoided where to buy from etc.
