The headlight on is controled by the engine ecu.It earths one of the relays behind the screen when the engine starts.Hope this helps.
Hmm I figured as much, so a handlebar/fairing switch it is then.

« on: 28 January 2012, 05:26:32 pm »
How is the headlight delay circuit implemented on the thou? I have a bandit 600 s that I'm using for winter and I want to install a HID kit but as you know HID kits dont like being on when your trying to start the bike as it turns off and shortens the life opf the burner/ballast.

I'm considering buying an FZ1-S after my previous gen gosh smashed. The bike is stock apart from a modded seat (which is the first thing I would have changed), but am I correct in assuming that i may need to get and fit an FCE if the delay at 4500rpm is annoying enough?

Other than the above what else do I need to be aware of regarding this bike before going ahead?

Due to the shitty weather and not being able to find the right Fazer 1000 to replace the one that got smashed a few weeks ago I am looking at getting a 600 so I have something to keep me mobile.

Have a budget of upto £1000, can be the square or foxeye, mileage unimportant but needs to be mechanically sound and preferably have a some sort of service history.


nb. did spot the silver fzs a few post below, but its above the budget.

For Sale & Wanted / Re: handle bar muffs
« on: 01 December 2011, 10:33:12 am »
I've got a set of oxford muff's on the bike, the secret is you need bolt them to the end of the bar ends!
 1. take the bar end of and drill a 6mm hole inside the allen key hole.
 2. tap & thread said hole.
 3. Obtain
  • M6x20 allen bolt
  • 2x 6mm*20mm washers (one on the inside and one on the outside of the muff)
  • 1x 6mm*20mm rubber/plastic washer (between the bar end and the inside metal washer)
4. Then make a hole 20mm back from the large plastic cuff on the muff, just where the seem meet.
 5. Use the allen bolt & washer from above.
 6. Use 1/2 cable ties to fix the other end of the juff to the throttle/brake/clutch cables etc.

So as someone has already mentioned, the above with some heated grips and you'll never get cold hands again. I have done the same thing with a cheap pair of muffs and the hire bike I am currently using, would you like me to take pics...?

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: A few questions from a newbie 1000 owner
« on: 14 November 2011, 09:47:49 pm »
Serviced the Exup, but one of the bolts was so corroded that even after an hour of fuch penatrating fluid and some gentle persuation the bolt sheared. Found a load of gunk(looked like some sort of resin) all over the pully and cables. The bogging down or starting issue wasnt there after servicing, but a longer checking/testing period maybe in order.

Did find that the clutch is slipping when you give it a handfull, so will help matey swap the springs/friction plates when the time comes. Other than that the bike is a gooden.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Ais removal
« on: 06 November 2011, 08:38:31 pm »
Hi Nicko

The only thing you need to remove is the petrol tank and the HT coils. Put a towel or rag over the cam cover to stop the AIS assy scratching it. As the AUIS assy is never going to go back on and fit fore the bin this is how I did it.

1. remove petrol tank and HT coils and placed some old tshirts over the cam cover.
2. using side cutters I cut the rubber tubes that connect the AIS to the AIS pipes.
3. undue/remove allen bolts that hold AIS pipes in situe, then the 10mm bolts that mount the AIS unit to the frame
4. with either a long reach flat blade screw driver or an 8mm socket and extension, loosen the jubilee screws on the end of the AIS pipes.
5. gently and patiently to remove AIS pipes, taking car not sratch the frame or the cam cover. (I had to rotate the pipes in a few directions before they came out.) The AIS come in pairs, left and right sides as you look down at the bike.
6. Then the final job is to the gently and patiently to remove AIS unit, this took  me 15-20 mins to get the right rotation and angle to get the unit out without scratching anything.

Job done, I have to do/show a local foccer to how to do it so if you like I can take pics.?!

I was in the shop at the same time as he was looking to buy another bike, long story short after getting the lowdown from me and a quick test ride he was sold!

So next sunday, I will take it for a test ride to accertain the bogging down issue(see if its the exup or just the "they all do that sir, you just gotta get the technique right", show him how to service the exup, have a look at the accessory socket in the infill panel and find a competitively priced battery should it need replacing.

nevermind, I found the info out from yamah uk.

Anyone got any info on this..
