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 / Head bearing rubber washer
« on: 28 February 2021, 11:16:03 am »
Hey guys , spring is coming !!  :rollin

Quick question , does anyone know where I can purchase the rubber washer which goes in-between the 2 head stock castellated nuts ?

During changing the bearings I found the original one was completely shredded

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 ?

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

« 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.

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?
