Hi, I’ve tried the bike with those setting and she feels pretty good but when breaking hard the front feels like it’s juddering.
I have fitted a radial master cylinder which seams to work ok just not sure why it judders when breaking hard.
Cheers for any advice.

For Sale & Wanted / Re: Clearout of Fazer 1000 Parts
« on: 03 July 2020, 09:41:40 pm »
Spare parts for sale after a decade of Fazer ownership.

  • Set of yokes. Bought as spares, someone has (badly) painted the lower yoke black: there are also drill holes in the lockstops although they are still intact and functional. The risers fitted are from a Virago 250, which have less rise than the standard risers but have about an inch of 'pullback'. Ideal if short in the arms or you prefer lower handlebar setup. £40 inc post
  • Aftermarket adjustable full length brake & clutch levers in silver, fitted the levers to the bike but never even used them on the road £15 inc post.
  • R1/R6 radial master cylinder with full length & short brake lever (short one is the black & anodised red lever pictured beside it).  Also converter for conventional layout two-line front hoses: this will basically bolt straight on if you currently have brake two lines attached to the standard master cylinder.  Huge improvement in front-end brake sensation, one-finger stoppies. £100 inc post.
  • Standard master cylinder. £15 inc post.
  • Sensor at back of engine block. Errr... will have to find out name of it! Bought but never used £8 inc post.
  • 4x mini indicators with 8x fairing spacers / cover plates. Fitted just one but actually preferred the standard indicators with clear lenses. Have the Audi-type directional flashing. I believe they require a different indicator relay fitted, so that they flash at the right speed. £20 inc post.
  • *SOLD* Beamtech LED headlight bulbs.
  • K-Tech linear fork springs 8.5nm. Originally for a Bandit 1200 / XJR1300, but a spring is a spring.  Longer than the standard Fazer fork springs so I cut shorter spacers accordingly to restore correct internal dimensions. Suit a lighter rider between 9 - 12 stone. £40 inc post.
  • *SOLD* Full Exup valve
  • Ignition coil for Cylinders 1 & 4, useful spare. £15 inc post.
  • Hagon Shock. Standard length and spring for a 75-100kg weight rider.  Less than a year old, bolts straight on £165 inc post.
  • S1000RR rear shock. This shock WILL need disassembled & rebuilt by a suspension company as the damping has gone. Comes with a heavier R6 spring fitted and dogbones which restore the back end to around the standard height. Has an R6 lower mounting bolt and a spacer to go in the lower suspension bush. Preload collar a bit chewed up. Top mount will need drilled out or some sort of top-hat spacer arrangement. £40 inc post. 
  • *SOLD* EBC FA252 HH front brake pads.
  • Full set of stainless steel pistons to suit front blue-spot calipers. Avoids corrosion damaging your seals. Normally £125 on ebay. £40 inc post.
  • Yam R1 5jj gear shift. Much quicker / smoother gear changes. £20 inc post
  • Head bearing adjuster - makes it easier to torque bearings to correct spec. £15 inc post.
Can send more pics if required. Updated as I clear out the garage.

    Hi all,
    I need some advice.
    I've noticed that the inlet rubbers between the carbs and the engine have small cracks in them, is this normal or should I replace them.

    Thankyou very much for your help.

    I've just taken tbe vacuum pipe off no.4 pot for hhe AIS and replaced it with a rubber cap and the popping has stopped.
    I then put the vacuum pipe back on and the popping started  again.
    Do you have to remove the complete AIS system or can you disconnect the vacuum pipe and block the outlet on no.4 pop.

    Itsca wide bore stubby end can.
    It ran fine before I balanced the carbs,
    When I put the vacuum gauges on the carbs again I'm pretty sure there was no popping in the exhaust.
    If I connect the vacuum gauges one by one and run the bike it may show up where the leak is if any.
    It may be worth a go,
