Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Hello Me Decide FZS600 to FZ1-S??
« on: 01 November 2019, 12:56:04 am »
I speak as someone who neither owns a 1K FZS or FZ1 or even a FZS 600 for that matter.
But as an Ex FZS600 03 Foxeye owner I would resign my job in London and keep the FZS 600. What a fantastic piece of kit they are.
Sold mine to a foccer on here, I sure he loves it (If of course he still has it) but I really regretted selling it, it had all the upgrades it could have, inc cartridge emulators and Ohlins Linears, blue spot caliper on the back, SS brake lines, SS headers and sports can
And it was the sensible silver model.
There weren’t many 600’s that could keep up with it one the lanes.
Damn I loved everything about that bike.
Don’t sell the little FZS you will end up in tears. :'(

Back in the 60's I did a bricklaying apprenticeship and one of the company projects was building a new a Youth Centre in Guildford (Haydon Place Youth Centre) it was the first time I came across something call a Spit Gun,.
The Spit Gun could fire hardened steel nails into RSJ's (Rolled Steel Joists) now know as Universal Beams, these guns were used on site to fix wooden battens to the steel beams to facilitate the fixing of cladding.
The nails were propelled by small cartridges and these brass cartridges were colour coded for strength of charge, Red, Green, Blue and Black.
Well being a young lad of course I nicked a few of each of them, well they did make an almighty bang, I now realise that a lot of the almighty bang was from the nail penetrating the steel beam and the beam resounding.


Anyway back home, cartridges in hand I placed a black one on the brick steps that lead up to my back garden, Ball Payne hammer in one hand and 3 inch cut nail in the other I gave the cartridge firing pin an almighty blow and was almost blinded by the flash (I was bending over the cartridge) my ears ringing I felt an incredibly painful stinging/burning on the front of my thumb, I was beside myself with pain and I looked down to see a dark lump under my skin just above the top thumb knuckle.
Now a brass cartridges if not contained within a muzzle of some sort send out red hot bits of shrapnel as it splits, this bit was only the size of a match head but it was red hot and had gone down under my thumb nail and had stopped when it hit my bent thumb joint.


I have come off numerous motorcycles over the years, fallen off ladders and once buzzed my foot with a chain saw but I have never felt pain like that shrapnel burn before, or since.
The remaining cartridges went back to the building site on the Monday morning.
I actually dug the piece of shrapnel out of my swollen Pusey thumb about a week later and the nail came off about a week after that.


Don't fuck with explosives. :'(

Selling a bike you love is ok has long as you feel it is the right thing to do and other right time.
I sold my much loved FZS600 Foxeye a few months ago, I loved owning it, working on it and riding it, but I felt with the arthritis in my wrists getting worse sooner or later I was going to throw it up the road and spoil it. My decision was to sell it before that happened.
Do I regret selling a few months down the line? A resounding ‘NO’ It went to a enthusiastic guy who would enjoy owning it as much as I did and he seemed the sort of guy who would look after it a cherish it.


If you don’t ride it very often and don’t actually love the bike sell it, use the money to help with the Harley conversion.
Who knows the new owner of your Fazer my love it and turn it into a fantastic bike, now that’s got to be better than it sitting outside minging and slowly deteriorating.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Clutch arm moving up?
« on: 05 April 2019, 08:24:54 am »
The shaft is held in with a circlip, it could have come off allowing it to move up.  You can take the cover off and check


As above. The occasional click could be something to do with a circlip in amongst the clutch drum and other parts in the case. Certainly wants fixing before the clutch lever comes right out leaving you stranded or worse still something more major than a circlip drops us down amongst the clutch basket.

Hey Sharpie,
Where abouts on your phone does the endoscope pictures get saved, I can take photos with it and view them on the phone screen, but, once I close the photo I can not find it again and there seems no option to save it, if it saves automatically like standard camera pic where the foc do they get saved to?

Same as that just no name on it eBay £8-00 about 6 years ago, used on on quite a few occasions, from looking down a blocked sink waste (Waterproof) to looking behind an engine to try to locate a nut that had fallen off the back of a bolt, with sight I was able to pick it up with a telescopic magnet, without it the magnet stuck to just about everything but the loose nut    .
Looked inside a box section on a car chassis.
Great little tool, USB, Needs a App download to operate (Endescope).
Plugs straight into a Galaxy S6, light brightness is adjustable, takes pics and video.

Did I tell you my sink got blocked today


Ahh !!!!  :eek
Now we are talking.  :lol
I am assuming it was the kitchen sink as these are the most likely sinks to block, although with saying that! Bathroom basin sinks and baths themselves not to mention shower tray traps can also block, but these usually block from a different reason.
Soap scum and human hair are the main culprits and cause of blockage in the last 3 mentioned above. Fat, food waste deposits and 2 Ltrs Dirty Engine Oil are the cause of kitchen sink blockages.
So the moral of this story is stop washing, bathing, taking showers and eating and use the kitchen sink for the purpose it was designed for, motor cycle maintenance.
There you go motorcycle related   

😂😂


The reason your sink is blocked is because it has an EU metric size plug hole, if it had a good old British imperial size plug hole and trap then it would be free flowing forever,  Brexit can not come too soon.


Slappy that is bullshit and you know it, nothing to do with the metric/imperial plug hole is all to do with Fully Synthetic Oil.
I read somewhere that you should never ever put Fully Synthetic Oil down the kitchen sink because it coagulates and forms a thickish foaming sludge, and, as the waste pipe is only 1.25 inches it blocks, so it is the toilet pan for Fully Synthetic Oil as it has a 4 inch soil vent pipe and does not block so readily.
All other oils are fine down the kitchen sink and I have this on very good authority, and should you have a oil /sink blockage creosote is great at clearing it.  :D


Bullshit!  How very dare you!
That modern Fully Synthetic stuff  is made in litres, its metric so cannot go down an imperial size waste pipe, its an interference fit and thats why it just blocks up immediately.


FUCK I think you might be right, should be OK after Brexit though. NNNNNOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooo

Yep I agree with all of that. It must carry a deterrent punishment, even for carrying a knife 'in defence'. As you say, the police aren't stupid.


But there must be other actions. Good friend of mine has just won an award for her theatre group touring schools with an anti - gang production. Money needs to be spent as well.


Even carrying a knife as you say 'in defence' the inference there is that you will use it, proving intention.
I could not say 'I am carrying a gun because some police do and they sometimes make mistakes so I am carrying it to defend myself', it is the same with a knife.


Hit the stupid shits hard who carrying an illegal blade longer than the legal size or with a flick action or locking blade, the police recognise muppets, they are the ones who usually mouth off to the police and loudly threaten them, saying shit like 'You are dead hard when there is 3 of you, if you were by yourself I would take you down' It is so easy to talk tough when you know that the police will not give them a chance to have a pop, often because they are on camera, or how would a policeman explain that his prisoner the innocent little victim had had the shit beaten out of him.
Put them in the prison for 5 years and there they can then practice all the mouthing off they want.


I agree with education the Anti-Gang theatre is a brilliant idea for children that are in school or members of clubs, it is deterrent from going down that route, but the idiots already on the streets will never hear that message, or would not want to.

You get the feeling this thread has been hyjacked.


Back on topic, I have to agree with Ogri48, 5 years for carrying a knife with intent. An 8 inch blade concealed about your person is intent.


Carrying a penknife or a multi tool is not the same as carrying a knife with a blade exceeding 7.62 cm or 3 inches, that is the legal maximum blade size you can carry about your person, but I believe then it has to be folding pocket knife.
If your multi tool has a knife blade that can be locked in the open position it is still illegal to carry it. Any knife that has an automatically opening blade is illegal as is any locking blade knife.
Carrying a knife in the passenger area of a car is unwise, even if it is used for hobby or work related things, best carried in the boot where it can not be reached easily.
The police are not stupid (generally) a lot of Stanley type knives have locking blades the push out of the handle with a shove from a thumb, if you have it in a glove box or door pocket of a car they will be suspicious, if it is in a tool bag or box or even a hobby/ fishing box in the boot it should not be a problem as long as you have not obviously tried to conceal it. Common sense must come into play,
Plus they must make an assessment on the individual concerned

A simple yes or no to my original post would have been good wasn't looking for a debate about who/why it's committed,  but  how do we stop or control it. Is it just humans who are capable of killing for other reasons than food.
