FZS600 Fazer / 98 vs 03
« on: 09 October 2021, 11:46:37 pm »
So during my build I keep coming up with differences between the boxeye and fixeye models. Not the obvious things like headlights fairings or tanks. More the BS little things like the switch gear plugs are different, the fuel pump plug is different, alternator plug is different, ignition plugs are different, hangers different, carb settings different. Seriously so many subtle changes that are under the surface!

*** Incidentally I don't intend on buying a new alternator to fit this 03 loom but if I put the connectors on female blades and slot them in does it matter the order? ***

FZS600 Fazer / Boz Boz Build 2.0
« on: 09 August 2021, 09:23:10 pm »
Hi all! I thought I'd catalogue how this bike build goes, hopefully it'll be as good of a bike as my last!

So currently I've got a piece of rust in bike form on a 99 plate frame, crap paint job and been left standing for too long but it starts... I've already bought a few bits they include a clean hpi 2003 frame with v5 in my name, this will get powder coated then ill transfer everything over. New old stock SS Micron headers and have a foxeye fairing and tank, the fairing is currently fitted to my soon to be sold vtr1000.

Plan is to transfer over everything to the fresh frame and make perfect slowly as I've too many projects and a house refurb to complete but this way I'll keep the missus happy!

Ideas for the new build is fit lighter wheels from an R1 and and R1 2008 USD front end which I've already got and have fit to my previous FZR1000 and current VTR. Powder coat everything eventually and get it wrapped or sprayed maybe matt black.

Current issues I've found:
Tank fuel overflow blocked, now fixed as its left outside in the rain!
Clutch cable was rock solid but now is supper loose and not disengaging the clutch -any ideas welcome! Clutch cable operates the bottom mechanical arm.
Coolant smells and is a bit foamy when bike running again ideas anyone?
Cylinders all run but 1/2 hot with 4 cokder and 3 coldest. Maybe need balance/ clean out. Idle is ok.
Haven't drained oil yet, hoping its not milkshake! Was going to do compression test first, is there a tester on ebay known to work on the spark thread that is reliable?

Jobs this week are to get frame powder coated and hopefully start the strip down. Pics to follow!

For Sale & Wanted / Freebies
« on: 15 September 2014, 08:09:52 pm »
I'm doing a clear out so have the following freebies to offer. Collection is best but I can post some items if I get beer tokens via PayPal.

So it is:

Complete fzs600 cylinder head including cams, rocker, shims valves (everything). One of the exhaust nut holes needs a repair/re tap/heli

2 fzs600 wheels 1xfront with ok tyre, 1x rear no tyre but wavy disc which needs work to get the nuts off. ****1st dibs red98****

Box of carbon exhausts +a stubby metal one, all damaged in some way but was looking to cut up and make stubby but not my style now I guess...

Box of various fzs600 bits. There's a rear brake that's working, full switch gear, couple of loud horns, working stator and wiring loom. All of a 99 model.

I can post pictures later but either way I'm not fussed, if you guys don't want them the metal man/dump can. Let me know via here or pm or both what you want.

COLLECTION FROM EYNSFORD, KENT. Near Sevenoaks/dartford. You can also text me on 07703021767, I can then call you or text back.

Oh yeah and I'm not going to hold on to this stuff so probably only have it for a week or two.....I must clear this garage!!!

FZS600 Fazer / Cam Chain Tool
« on: 17 July 2013, 03:31:57 pm »
Been trying to find an old post about a good tool for riveting a new cam chain -never needed one in the past I've been fortunate enough to have the guides on the 'outside' of bikes not slap down the middle! Anyway I've now given up with the search so what does everyone recommend?

FZS600 Fazer / The BozBoz Build
« on: 01 May 2013, 12:20:12 pm »
Hi everyone, been a while since I've posted on here properly. Alot has happened over the last month -mainly getting a job in a gym, so no more despatching on my turd fazer!(so no more corrugated plastic fairing with drain pipe mount!) :D :D :D
So given that I can start cycling to work soon I'm going to start my bike rebuild. Theres a number of problems that I need to address quickly and a few mods I'd like to do to make it a better ride. Oh and before anyone says buy a thou -I am still an all weather biker so I'd like to keep the 600 for the winter months even after I do get a fazer thou/fireblade/ducati/who knows!
Ive got a few mods to do too such as K&N, upgraded front/rear suspension, foxeye conversion, paintjob, light engine tune.... :evil
So current problems that need doing:
Engine oil 10k miles old!
Fuel leak from pump
Rear shock has dumped all its oil (mattress bike)
Cam chain maybe 1 click away now
Leaking front forks(replaced seals and new stancions fitted)
Sprocket bearing badly worn (new bearing waiting)(new one now fitted)
Headlight wiring has a ghost(the ghost is back....)
No radiator fan (Summers coming!)(fitted)
No main stand(meh...)
Bent front fairing brace(foxeye fitted)
Frankenstein fairing(in the bin replaced by foxeye fairing)
Exhaust can blowing round crap rivets(yeah....still blowing...)
Rev counter sticks on 5k
Fuel guage KIA
Overheating light shorts when wet!
Parts I have aquired so far:
Fazer thou rear shock (Now fitted with Hyper Pro spring)
Fazer foxeye tank (Fitted)
Fazer foxeye fairing & brace (fitted)
Fazer foxeye headlight & loom (fitted)
Thundercat forks/yokes/fender (watch this space!)
Fazer foxeye main loom
Foxeye clocks
Rad fan (fitted)
Silicone rad pipes(now fitted)
Ill probably do some of the more simple things now but cant do a full strip down yet as I'll be going to france soon for a bike trip to a number of the WW1 graves with my dad and his pristine BMW 1150! Also who wants to spend the summer rebuilding a bike to ride in the stinking winter!(been on the trip -awesome great memories and no break downs!!!)
Oh and finally -Christo I washed my bike and have the pics to prove it!!!

FZS600 Fazer / Fuel Pump
« on: 01 February 2013, 10:24:32 am »
I think my fuel pump is dead, no clicking, obvious signs of fuel starvation. Bike just spluttered and died on monday so I had a fiddle under the tank and  the bike starts and runs ok bypassing the pump but it needs a pump as flow alone isnt enough, splutters and dies if run too long, yestaurday I broke down in the blackwall tunnel(yes that was me...sorry! :o ) Ive been getting away with rocking/dry humping the bike and it whould fire back up but not in the tunnel(typical)! Has anyone got a spare in the dartford area? Or do you think it might be a relay issue? Ringing around breakers atm.

FZS600 Fazer / Handlebar muffs
« on: 25 October 2012, 04:57:17 pm »
Handlebar muffs: whos got them? Which ones work well with the fazer(and its fairing)? Which ones are recommended?

I'm looking at Tucano Urbano ones at the moment as I've used them in the past and they are great but I think they will be too big for a semi faired bike.

Any advice/recommendations will be appreciated!

Cheers, BozBoz  :)

FZS600 Fazer / Givi Rack manual/instructions
« on: 24 October 2012, 06:57:21 pm »
Does anyone have an image/link of the givi monokey rack for the fazer that I can see? Or anyone near sevenoaks that I can go have a look at one?
Cheers, BozBoz  :)

FZS600 Fazer / Any couriers here?
« on: 24 October 2012, 01:54:01 pm »
I need to go back to despatching due to lack of money and mounting bills! :'(  Just wondering if theres any fazer couriers here that might know a cheap company to insure the fazer with. My existing company as well as most offer quotes I've had are over a grand! Bit of a shock considering the most I've had to pay was 800 when I was I new courier over 3 years ago, cheapest Ive had was 300 on a ntv650 so I doubt its beacause of engine size!? Any suggestions?
Cheers, BozBoz  :)
