FZS600 Fazer / running problems
« on: 17 October 2014, 07:00:54 pm »
My bike is running like a bag of s##te
At normal speeds it is ok but at motorway speeds
the engine is like it is stuttering
no power
power even drops off
you start off with a full fuel tank and it drops down fast, when you open it there is a fair vacuum

at the moment I am tuning in the carbs and building a balancing tool, to check the balancing
all my local garages are not interested in looking at it

What do I need to look at and do???

you can tell a happy biker by the flies in his teeth

FZS600 Fazer / carbs set up
« on: 04 October 2014, 01:17:26 pm »
Is there anyone in the Manchester area that can set the carbs up, or know of a garage that can, cheaply
As far as I know they are balanced, just need the fuel mixture setting

FZS600 Fazer / carb inlet rubbers
« on: 12 September 2014, 06:57:09 pm »
I am after some help
My bike is running on kangaroo juice
I have cleaned out tank, cleaned carbs, oil and filter change.

The symptoms and motorway cruising speed it is stuttering, at fast acceleration there is no power and it even slows down.

I have been told it could be my carb rubbers that are leaking as they are cracked,

Could this be the problem, I was going to try sealing them and wrapping tape round them, alternatively new ones are £70.
I have been looking at other topics on the forum but still need help

Any advice


FZS600 Fazer / oil feed pipe
« on: 06 March 2014, 09:32:43 pm »
A slight problem
the oil feed pipe at the front of the engine is leaking, when I took it off it has had a bodge repair done on it in the past.
After cleaning it up, I soldered the hole up.
Alas it has started leaking again
any advice or help, as they want £70 for a new one

FZS600 Fazer / front brake switch
« on: 05 March 2014, 05:16:20 am »

A little problem
The front brake switch, stopped working so I replaced it from ebay, a month or so later did the same, so got one from my bike shop. A month later, hey presto, it doesn't work again.

Apart from keep buying new ones, is there anything else I can do?????


Introduction / newbe
« on: 19 January 2014, 05:18:59 am »
Thought I would introduce myself
I am I the Manchester area and was wondering if there are any clubs for bikers, especially round the Trafford area

My choice of extinction is a 1998 fzs600 fazer

One question though, is it me or does it feel colder and noisier riding a bike now than when I was 18?
I know this is a long shot as well, I used to be in Stockport and District bike club in the 80's, if there is anyone one out there.

Hi Everyone
