I run carbon ceramic all round last about a year. No problems other than they take a dogs age to bed in. Get mine from goldfren direct on ebay.

Try Tcp aerodynamics they are pricey. But you get every thing including All the brackets. The paint is colour matched perfectly. I got the 2002/2003 version it looks awesome. But you will need a healthy bank balance. Hope this helps.

Glad i could help see you on the mayday run with any luck. :D

FZS600 Fazer / Re: rear caliper seals
« on: 17 April 2012, 07:53:36 am »
I got a couple of usefull tips from a main dealer mechanic for the seal problem (1 )Use rubber grease on the seals when fitting the grease sits in the gaps topping the crud building up and the pistons slide in dead easy. (2) is a cleaning tool get an old pushbike spoke sharpen the end then bend it close to the end and this makes an awesome cleaning tool for the seal slots. Bend the other end into a handle.and buy good seals not cheap ebay ones.

For those who have missed out on this Amazing event its a run from locksbottom in kent to hastings down the A 21.Its been going for decades now. Its the first bank holiday in may (7th this year) Thousand of bikes and bikers go. Hastings council are putting on a good show this year apparently. Wake up early, leave early have a fun day down the coast. There is even a facebok page :- Mayday run 2012 and a web page thought i can't remember what it is but it does have 1066 somwhere in the title lol. I read somewhere it attracted 40,000 bikes one year. people line the roads to watch, who knows you may even end up on youtube. Enjoy

FZS600 Fazer / Re: hi all . advise please on wirring clutch??
« on: 17 April 2012, 07:06:17 am »
Its bearing noise there is a little race bearing on the top of the clutch springs. It rattles when not under load you can replace it if you want. all i do is use my noise as an indicator for changing the oil. Mine goes quiet for a while after an oil change. Look in the haynes manual they even have pictures of it lol

Try your throttle position sensor (It the wire coming of the side of the carbs) The rev counter does a trouble shoot program i think its up to 3000 rpm for throttle sensor. plug your old carbs back into it. If that stops it swap them over. its two screws. Make marks around the screws before changing the sensor is critical to the running of the engine. wrong place it runs like crap. Its easy to do take lots of pictures on ya phone before you start. Hope it helps.

I just put a switch across the terminals on the radiator and turn it on manually in traffic.

If i recall correctly the alternator has about 120 watts spare after running the bike lights and all (foxeye model) I think the older one has less cos of only having one headlight running. Hope this helps.

FZS600 Fazer / Mayday run

I hope there are going to be more FZS Fazers on the Mayday run this year. I saw 4 last year.

I use my gauges with great success, If you put in the damper valves they are fine.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: fitting led indicators
« on: 21 March 2012, 09:14:11 pm »
If you have got indyspacers then take off the old indicators. Then make a sandwich of the indyspacers and the fairing. Slip the new indicator through the hole, add washer and nut, tighten securely. (Don't go mad tightening as you may rip the bolt out of the indicator). Connect the wiring and hey presto. Should the lights flash too fast, you will need to get a new flash can or load resistors to control the speed. By the way Brown /Green are the live side, black is earth. If you connect the wrong way round, the leds won't work Hope this helps.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Is my battery on it's way out.....
« on: 14 March 2012, 01:20:40 pm »
The battery in question was not a good one and dropped from 12.5 to 10.1 in six hours the went to great battery heaven lol.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Is my battery on it's way out.....
« on: 11 March 2012, 08:13:24 am »
Take the battery out of the bike. check the voltage. Leave it alone for half a day then go back take another voltage reading. If the second reading is signifcantly lower than the first then the battery is shorting out internally. best find a new one.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Fuel Leak
« on: 11 March 2012, 07:38:46 am »
Maybe you have a leaky/ stuck float valve. Give the carbs a gentle tap with a mallet. Mind the tps its plastic and breaks easily.

Yep both my engines sound like a bomb going off either side of neutral.

« on: 08 March 2012, 10:18:03 pm »
It may be the valve clearance on one of the valves. it goes as the engine gets warm and starts to expand.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: chain and sprocket
« on: 08 March 2012, 10:14:52 pm »
There are 5 bolts 2 at the top 2 at  the bottom and one in the recess in the middle of the sprocket cover  rear wheel end. Take off the gear lever 10mm spanner. If your really lucky squeeze the clutch lever in it will pop off. If it does not you may need to pry it off be gentle the edges break easily. Hope this helps.

FZS600 Fazer / Re: Warning lights?
« on: 07 March 2012, 08:09:00 pm »
Mine did that about a year ago. mine was a corroded block plug and a loose earth strap. split each block plug, spray generously with wd40 put back together. Repeat this with every plug and do the same with the battery terminals. hope this helps.
