For Sale & Wanted / FZS 600 Boxeye - Now Sold
« on: 03 March 2018, 03:13:15 pm »
My '98 600 is now for sale.
Located in South Yorkshire.
Price is £600

It has 97225 miles on it and has been used each day.
has some faded paintwork and a cracked fairing.
Scuffs to engine cases.
Some bubbling under fork wraps
some valve noise.

MOT to September and passed last one with no advisories having had head bearings replaced previously.

Chain & Sprockets are good and the Michelin PR3 tyres still have mileage in them.

I have an album of photos and I'll attach some here if I can figure out how

Any questions please just ask.

FZS600 Fazer / Electrical question
« on: 11 October 2016, 04:20:57 pm »
There are three white wires from the generator, 3 phase AC,  to the regulator / rectifier.
Does it matter in which order these are connected.
Also whats the amperage from the generator AC. I think the RR gives out 18 amps DC
but wondering about the input.

Oh yeah, '98   600

'98 600 boxeye. Running standard single dip headlights. Indicators and brake lights dim headlights.
Meter across battery shows 13v. Engine running it's up to almost 14v. When lights on voltage drops and with brake light it's down to just 12v so not charging much if at all.

Will this be as simple as crappy connections or is there something else to check.

FZS600 Fazer / Rattle from pads
« on: 27 September 2015, 08:03:40 am »
Hi, front brake pads rattle in calliper. They rock around the pad pin. Is this worn calliper or fixable with spring maybe. Ferodo pads, '98 600,  83,000 miles.

FZS600 Fazer / Rear Shock
« on: 27 February 2015, 05:36:19 pm »
Hi, does anyone have any experience of Hagon vs Betor vs YSS shocks.
Hagon is around £300 the YSS a little less but with damping adjustment,
And the Betor is just cheap at around £180.

You could say that anything will be an improvement on my 80,000 mile original
Shock. ☺

I've been asked if £650 all in, both tests, bike hire, training as required.
Is this a good price or should I advise shopping round some more. The
Lad knows the school as did CBT there a while back.

For Sale & Wanted / 600 Engine
« on: 10 October 2013, 10:59:12 am »
Is anyone interested in a 600 engine from a '98 / '99 with approx 25K miles on it.

It is not complete but needs camshaft holder bolts and the cams refitting.

I used it as a replacement while my engine got sorted. I stole the camshaft holder bolts
for mine.
Up to this point it ran lovely.
It's a bit cosmetically challenged and I'll try to get some pics up later.

I have had it taking up space for a few years now and thought it must be worth £50 to someone.

Apologies to the Bridgestone fans out there :-)

Just started getting random words on web pages underlined.
When I hover over them its an advert for random shite.

Using Chrome generally. Added AdBlocker but still same.
Been through task manager and control panel trying to find something the
kids may have installed.

Any ideas

FZS600 Fazer / Rear Suspension
« on: 28 February 2013, 07:36:47 pm »
While adjusting chain. '99 600
Put pressure on socket to undo rear spindle nut, upwards,  and got play in the shock mounting.

Its the lower mounting point. has a few mm of play where I can see the bolt has slack in
the mounting through the bracket and shock.

Is the lower bracket replaceable,
Is it likely to be the mounting or the shock,

sorry for the rambling description,

FZS600 Fazer / Brakes question
« on: 05 September 2012, 07:33:37 pm »
My front brake has gone soft.
It has more travel than usual but even stranger it loses all
pressure and the lever comes back to the bar and no braking at all.
squeeze again and back to soft pressure but brakes work.

Going to have a look at weekend but any ideas on where the likely fault is.
ie: master cylinder, calipers, lines,  everywhere??

its a 98 600 with 68K on clock and as far as I know original lines and calipers.

Missing a 'P' is bad for the bladder apparently
