FZS600 Fazer / My 2nd Fazer , gearbox issue?
« on: 14 May 2021, 06:16:39 pm »
So just picked up my 2nd Fazer (left to me a late friend)


The bikes only done 16000 and it's a 1998 fzs600 , been sat for a long time so I've had the carbs off and cleaned them , drained the tank and repaired the petcock ,


After getting the carbs back on and firing her up she ran lovely , took her for a run up and down the road to see how she feels and she felt lovely


Now for the issue , 2nd gear seems to whine alot louder than any other gear , my 1999 Fazer doesn't make a sound anything like it ,


A bit worried about it, how worried should I be ? Is the gearbox ruined

FZS600 Fazer / Sticky rev counter
« on: 16 May 2020, 09:35:16 am »
Hey guys ,


So I've been reading all the tps stuff and I'm pretty sure this isn't a speed sensor fault ,


The rev counter kinda gets hung up at 5000 then kinda wiggles it's way up , then gets stuck there again , never drops to zero like some of fault code stuff .


What can this be ?


I've checked the tps and the Speedo if in effected , working as usual


Cheers guys

FZS600 / Cam chain tensioner
« on: 06 January 2020, 10:29:11 pm »
Hey guys ,


So, took the carbs off the Fazer yesterday for pre spring clean and while I had access I thought I would pull the cam chain tensioner to see if there's any steps left (rattle on idle when cold)


There was about 4 clicks left which I thought was strange as there's a rattle on idle , should that slack if been taken up by now?


What do you think ? Sticky tensioner ?


Cheers

FZS600 Fazer / Spot lights
« on: 26 April 2018, 01:46:47 pm »
Just got some spots for the fazer and going through different wiring ideas , is it safe to use the live feed for the headlights for power or will it draw to much power for the circuit? The spots are 30w each

FZS600 Fazer / Strange noise :/
« on: 13 April 2018, 10:47:47 pm »
Hey i today I went for a little blast and noticed and strange whining noise coming from the front sprocket area that changes in pitch with speed , I can hear it above 40 onwards , do I need to worry or could this just be worn chain and sprockets ?


Chain looks fine because i clean and oil regularly.


Worried about a gearbox issue but the noise stays the same with clutch in or out

FZS600 Fazer / Chain cleaning with isopropyl alcohol?
« on: 25 March 2018, 02:41:53 pm »
Hey , as titled is isopropyl alcohol ok to clean chains without damaging the x rings? , its way cheaper than the aerosol cleaners on the market.

FZS600 Fazer / Idea for a jacking frame?
« on: 01 February 2018, 09:40:15 pm »
This is my bad drawing of my idea to get the old girl up in the air:
Ask a friend to hold the bike stable and jack up from the middle plate then slip 4 axle stands on all corners of the frame ?

FZS600 Fazer / Lower clutch adjustment problem!
« on: 11 September 2017, 01:58:15 pm »
Hey guys, I have adjusted the lower clutch cable many times before but today my swan neck spanner (well the monkey using it) has stripped the 2 metal tabs that fold out presumably to stop the whole mechanism from sliding in ? Haven't rode the fazer yet because it's tipping it down out there but the cable adjusted fine afterwards and seems to be working.

https://photos.app.goo.gl/5jyMK4AwgoniAzVB2

Now I'm worried the clutch is going to slip like f**k or I'm going to damage something without the little metal tabs doing there job.

Has anyone had this issue before?
