FZS600 Fazer / Re: Boz Boz Build 2.0
« on: 19 September 2021, 11:37:06 pm »
Thanks for the replies and advice people. Good timing as I had a couple of hours today to do a few tests on the bike!

So all 4 cylinders are sparking so no problem there. I've run the carbs dry so will see internals when I start the strip down next weekend.

The clutch looks new, however the push rod and ball bearing were practically welded together and its no longer ball shape so have no idea whats happened there! Needless to say ill replace.

I've drained the oil too, this looked fine! No milkshake. I've still to drain the coolant so fingers crossed! I really don't want to do another head gasket on an engine again...

I've fitted an 02 r6 tail to a fzr1000, chose it as the sub frame for that r6 was easy to cut and weld, I think later models are less forgiving in their shape/design!

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!

Were micron any good? Only ask as I bought a set my self, new old stock! Not fitted and won't fit fir a while! However I think my previous fazer had delkavic.

Yeah I've been building it since last year and it's perfect but now I just can't look at it! I'm near SEVENOAKS in Kent.
I'm in two minds about re spraying the scrapped panels and maybe just sell it for 1600? Or is it worth more?! It's dameged but not bad so I just don't know how to price it

For Sale & Wanted / Fazer 600 for sale or breaking
« on: 06 June 2015, 11:27:05 am »
2002 fzs600 fully rebuilt  HPI clean and now selling or breaking with less than 500miles since the rebuild fresh MOT. Dropped it whilst backing it down my drive, broke my heart so have made the decision to sell -Need to raise money for a deposit so keeping my fzr1000 only

Specs are:

Satin black Powder coated frame, front fairing mount, swingarm, wheels, yokes anything metal. Maganeise engine casings, fork lowers and hangers (look at the pictures nice colour).

New Armstrong discs front and rear (£200)
New pilot road 3s front and rear tyres (£200)
New gold x ring chain with +1renthal rear sprocket and -1front renthal (£100)sprocket.
New rear hugger(£50)
New undertray/tail tidy(£50)
Blue iridium double bubble screen(£40)
Headlights fitted with projector lights and running at 5500k so nice and white not blue(£200)
Rebuilt front forks which had new stanchions at the start of last year(£150)
Wheels fully rebuilt and powder coated including sprocket carrier(£100)
Yamaha r6 rear shock and linkage (£200)
Lots of carbon bits yoke covers, clock cover tank cap(£30)
Blue stainless braided brake lines, can provide with new copper washers(£40)
Stainless exhaust system
Rebuilt front rear calipers with new pads(£50)
Fazer1000 rear blue spot caliper and torque arm(£50)
Blue titanium disc bolts front and rear(£25)

Damage is small scraps on the top faring and rear plastics no cracks
Exhaust is dented too. Right side casing scratched but hidden under fairing. Right bar end and lever scraped. Possibly the renthal handlebars bent but have not ridden it since.Lucky the fairing lowers were not fitted at the time!

Let me know if you are interested In parts or the bike as a whole, pm me or call/text 07703021767 with offers, please do keep them sensible tho! Prices in brackets are a rough guide to those who are after parts.

I've got both. It doesn't work, tried it and it just don't work. For starters the bottom bolt on the fazer is tiny compared to the cats so you'd end up with bits of this and bits of that so not just as easy as tcat bottoms fazer tops. Even just using the tcats fork caps as fancy preloads isn't too good because there's too much preload even when they are unwound! Save your money and improve the fazers internals...
