Hi All!

Haven't been on here for a long time! id like to say that its because i've been too busy riding but that's not the whole case!

General / RIP Fellow Foccer
« on: 28 August 2013, 08:55:45 pm »
Just wanted to pay my respects to a fellow Foccer on here....
He was a personal Friend too and we had many a mad rides out...
unfortunately the fortunes of the bike gods took him from us 2 weeks ago while he was touring in France with another friend....
The downside to the life we all lead, Unfortunately the fight between an over taking bike and a lorry pulling out without looking always ends bad for us bikers....
His funeral is Friday here in the UK..... he was a brilliant lad with much respect for the biking world and the power behind his bike..... I know he would have died doing something he loved.....
RIP Louis... I hope you still ride with us.....

General / looking for new bolts etc??
« on: 03 July 2012, 06:06:57 pm »
i have recently had some bad luck with my engine bolts with many of them snapping when i have been trying to either remove or re-tighten them.....
well as a quick fix i found a seller on EvilBay .... they came within 24hours and they sent me extra to make sure...
all stainless steel and silver and Amazing quality... They look much better on the bike and cost half the price of anything else ive after measuring up all the bolts i have just put an order in and got all the bolts for the bike engine....
so if you are after any bolts or nuts or just fancy a browse etc.... this is the seller...
hope it works!

FZS600 Fazer / Dropped It! Help with repair advice please!
« on: 11 January 2012, 05:50:49 pm »
Hi all..... well ive done something stupid....
I usually have to ride the bike into the Shed as its a steep slope in and out, last night i had to push it as the battery needed charging and couldnt get it to start, so built up my speed got the front tire up and the back one just didnt have enough momentum.......
it fell to the off side and into my BBQ, not being able to see in the dark i had to leave it till this afternoon
upon inspection ive found the it seems to have sliced the top (just on the inside) where i believe there had been a repair made (a very good repair) a few years back?
Any Advice on how to stick it all back together and paint it back up?
couldnt get any pics due to it being dark again but if you want them i'll grab some tomorrow?!

FZS600 Fazer / Strange Noise After The Chain Was Adjusted! HELP !!!
« on: 10 November 2011, 08:43:57 am »
Hello Hello Hello....... Me AGAIN !  :)
This bike seems to be giving me more problems then ever now!
one of my "yeye i can fix that" mates advised me that my chain was slack and needed tightening... so after much struggle of every nut, bolt and toggle being "far too tight" he ended up taking the rear spindle out and taking the adjusters out as they were filthy and almost impossible to move...
So far we were going ok, he put the spindle back in and adjusted the chain etc so its matching both sides of the swing arms etc etc etc..... soooo the problem......
I left to ride home, (a 40min journey that actually took 2hours) and i noticed the problem.
The Knocking..... it felt a bit like my rear wheel was about to fall off. when i got back it was pitch black but had another little look and it still seems to be aligned....
Any ideas of what i can do? i know im due for a new chain and sprocket but would this cause the knocking?
its a slow speeds as well as fast (although i didnt get about 40mph due to traffic)
Also i have just looked and noticed a few rust spots on the chain.
so please please please! help!

General / Battery Charger Advice please.....
« on: 08 November 2011, 02:20:10 am »
Hey Foccers,
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me if this here device would be able (or suitable) for charging a bike battery?
I have one already and use it to Charge LiPo batteries that fire high powered guns but wondered if it would do the job on a spare bike battery?
(i hope the link works properly!)  :\
