Introduction / Re: Looking for a Fazer 1000
« on: 23 May 2024, 07:26:21 pm »
Forstly, welcome to the forum.

I assume you mean the Gen 1 (FZS1000) rather than the Gen2 FZ1000. There are a couple of the various Fazer groups on Faceache at the moment including the foc-u one. You should definitively be able to pick a good one up for that budget but the best ones are upwards of £2k still at the moment for an FZS1000. .

What is your idle speed set to?
Idle speed set to 1500rpm. Once the engine is hot it tends to idle at around 1800rpm

idle speed once warm shoulf be about 1250

Bumping this up - For those that know who i am talking about will know he is a long standing member on this site. One of the people from the original site 20 years ago who i got to meet and know as a result of this site. His attacker has recently been sentenced for attempted murder of this member, that is how serious the attack was and as a result this member is now suffering significant long term health issues so managing to do this bike ride, even on the back of a tandem, is going to be a significant challenge for him.

So please dig deep and sponsor this worthwhile cause.

How many times will there be responses like "i dont recall that" or "I was never informed"?

Whilst ultimately the buck stops with her, there are numerous people that were below her that may have not told her the truth or simply not said anything.

I want to know when Fujtisu will be taken to court for it as ultimatly it was their staff doing the wrong doing that made it look like the postmasters were stealing etc.

In June last year one of our members was attacked at work leaving him with life changing injuries and unable to ever ride a motorbike again (or possibly even work again) though he still polishes his FZS600 semi-regularly. In an effort to repay the people who helped him following that attack, he is doing a 75 mile bike ride on the back of a tandem to raise some money.
Dig deep and sponsor him please.

Having seen the damage a backpack can do to someone's back in an accident i would never suggest that one be worn on a motorbike. Have a look at tail packs that have straps to carry around rather than a dedicated backpack. I cant suggest anything though as i always use the topbox for storing my helmet when parked.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Ignition coil life?
« on: 07 April 2024, 07:26:07 pm »
if #2 and #3 are still working/failing whichever way round the leads from the coils are, the problem is fuel or air, not ignition. #2 and #3 both use the same coil and both fire at the same time.

So, its either the carb not supplying fuel or the valves not allowing air in/out of the cylinder. My money is on the carb

Double check you wiring as the diagram appears incorrect for the operation of the relays.

Relay will  just switch power to the lights and your diagram has the high and low beams on together. You will need a change over switch for the lights to switch from low to high. A change over switch will take 3 wires. In your drawing the Blk/Yell will go to the center pole of the switch and the  Blue and White will go to the outer 2poles.

On older vehicles it was common for dipped to remain on when high beam came on so it may not be incorrect.

can you upload the diagram in a normal format? I cant open it.

Easiest way to make a bike faster is for the rider to eat less pies.

IIRC, the change just involves joining two wires together but may be as "difficult" as cutting the connector blocks off the old and new switches and just using some connectors to join the old connector block to the new switch wires - someone has provided you with the full details already. Should be no more than 15 minutes more time than simply plugging in the right one.

The only other option would be to speak to someone like Fazer Chris on the faceache sites and see if he has a 2nd hand one with a key.

I was reading about it on the Bikers Club in France group on Faceache, sounds like a real headache for the whole biking community. Unable to sell a bike now without a new(ish) CT after April(?) but no real test locations up and running and all bikes to be tested by the end of this year. The phasing in is mad - all in year one, just bikes reaching the age requirement in year 2 and 3 and then everything that was tested in year one again in year 4. They should have leveled out the demand. That said, MOT's in the UK are a good way to catch the stupid riders that have no real idea about bikes and are basically riding death traps. For the 90% of us though that do have an understanding, they are a waste of time and money.
