FZ6 / Fazer / Engine sound and tickover different?
« on: 01 October 2018, 06:41:26 pm »
Hi Guys. On Saturday, I started my bike as normal, but immediately, a 'Pop' noise came from the engine. I never thought too much of it, but then noticed the idle speed seemed more erratic, not as smooth as normal, almost misfiring and I'm convinced the engine doesn't sound the same, more rattle and tappet noise.

Strange one, I know but any Ideas? 


FZ6 / Fazer / Temp non starter
« on: 09 September 2013, 12:47:25 am »
Twice, whilst out on a rideout with mates, my FZ6 acted strange? After pulling into a petrol station, the bike failed to re-start, with the red immobiliser light flashing, but then started. Later, after a refreshment stop, the same thing happened, but I noticed the temp gauge was at the top and the top 2 notches flashing, so assumed it had overheated. I also noticed 2 numbers in the left side of the readout, can't remember whether it was 51 or 52? Assuming it was overheat due to the temp gauge flashing, we left it a while, but still, it wouldn't start. After approx 20 mins, it eventually decided to start, looking on forums etc, it was suggesting interference from another immobiliser key? One of the riders has an FZ1, could his key have been cutting mine out, or does anyone know what happened? Thanks!

I have got to get on my FZ6 early Sunday morning, and ride from Leicester to Silverstone for the Superbikes, just cos one of my bosses can't make his £500 access all areas ticket.

What a bugger.

Introduction / Mid Life Crisis?

Tony, from Leicester. Not owned a bike for 30 years, and that was a Honda CG125, was going to up to a 250 or 400 Superdream at the time, but had a company vehicle, so wasn't getting the use, so sold it instead.
Now, having just turned 50, have a couple of mates who recently bought bikes, I thought, go for it, so got me a FZ6s to play on! The comments are mainly "Going back to your youth Tony", but I reply, it's more of a mid life crisis.
Anyway, still getting used to the bike, been on a few long burn outs with the 2 biker mates, dropped it once, but getting there!
