I think the Gen 2 wheels fit with a little bit of fettling.

I did look at this about 10 years ago but never bothered, so can't confirm one way or the other.

I also seem to remember Devilsyam (RIP) telling me that to fit the R1 rear wheel you need to have a disc made up to fit.

Have you been through the Gen 1 FAQ sticky on this forum?

Hopefully someone will come along soon and give you the proper information.

Have you tried Wemoto or ebay? I know SAMCO do Silicon hose kits and hose clamp kits for the FZS1000

Why not use alloy wheel paint, you can get it in all sorts of colours and it is easy to find and use.

A can of the colour you want and a can of matching lacquer can be had for about a tenner and will do both wheels.

Available at local motor factors, eBay etc. something like this [size=78%][/size]

I have used it loads of times when I used to do up bikes for a hobby and its an easy value add to smarten up the wheels.

sure someone could come up with something similar for the fazer...... they want 65 quid for this ktm one..... a bit steep i think

I an sure I have seen/read that the early R1 clutch arm fits and because it is longer it gives more leverage

Thinking of having a weeks spin around northern Spain and the Picos at the end of this month, any one got any experience of bike friendly hotels (secure parking etc), within walking distance of bars and food etc, in the area?

Cheers in advance

Hi mate, I still have mine but I am working in Saudi, so not much help I am afraid.

If you had asked a couple of weeks ago, when I was home,  I could have sent you the standard lights to play with.

I still have mine, about 26K now. Mike you ivanised it twice, once at my house then a few years later you did the full monty (I think at old sons place)

I still like the two tone black and silver storm (skunk colour, or should that be color  :lol )

I have a 1290 SuperDuke GT for summer touring now, so Fazer is for sunny day fun

I have had it three times on the right side of my face and twice on the left, which is apparently very rare. Mine has been bought on by an allergic reaction or a cold draught.

If the have you on the anti virals and steroids you should see an improvement in a few days to a few weeks. As said it can take 3-4 months to fully recover, though you may always have some deficit.

Tape your eye shut at night or wear a patch to stop damage to your eye, rubbing your eye on your pillow as you sleep.

Take care eating that you don't bite the inside of your mouth or tongue. And drinking can cause issues with a floppy mouth.

You get used to it after a few weeks and can normally go back to work.

You should also get physio for the face, which also speeds recovery up.

There is a side effect for the steroids, they made me fat, well fatter.  :rollin

Good luck and take it easy.

Silver tech is the light silver and silver storm is the darker bluey grey.

The colour code in on the bike, either the label on the frame just before the headstock or under the seat

« on: 23 August 2018, 02:32:33 PM »
I can understand the logic of RAC and AA not doing accident recovery as they provide a breakdown cover, same with recovery that comes with a new bike.

But insurance company provided recovery should include accident recovery surely?

I am with Bennetts so thanks for the heads up.

Hi mate, no not selling. I have got a Superduke GT for the touring stuff, but keeping the Fazer  :D .

Hi Stu1318,

Sorry for slow reply, was at family do.

If you were interested and lived closer we could have arranged a meet. As i am Liverpool area I would need to post, at extra cost if you are interested.

Rear view, a few inches wider than the bars.

I also have the E21 panniers which are about half as wide, but  don't have a picture fitted

Where abouts are you in the country?

For both sets of panniers, the rack, side carriers (with locks) and adapter plate I would want £200 (The rack and side plates alone are that)

I will try to post here from photobucket but not sure if it works

The rack

Adapter plate and side carriers fitted

Panniers and top box fitted

Hopefully the pics worked

I have a set up on my Gen 1 I will be selling soon, if anyone is interested.

SW Motech Alu rack with side carriers (quick release, so no metal on bike when not needed) with mountings for GIVI panniers.

Alu rack adaptor plate with GIVI fittings for GIVI top box (keeping my V46 top box)

Pair of 21L GIVI top opening panniers (great for a long weekend/traveling light)

Pair of E42 GIVI Panniers (the ones with extra top opening to get small items out like spare gloves etc)

Can send photos in a few days (away with work just now)

Sorry chaps the pictures are showing to me, they are on photobucket, do you have the photobucket fix/extention for your browser

There is a how to pinned in general forum.

If not I can email them to anyone who is interested, but as I say not home until late June

The smaller (recommended) pannier pictures are on my phone.

The smaller panniers are great for a long weekend away, the bigger ones for longer trips or two people kit.

When do you need it by?

I have bought a 1290 Superduke GT for touring duties so I will be selling the luggage set on my Gen 1, but I am not home until end of June.

I have an SW Motech Alu Rack and side carriers all with Givi Adaptors. 2 E42 Givi side cases, 2 21 L Givi side cases and a V46 top box with pillion back rest.

Apart from the rack everything comes off the bike in under 5 mins

Its been really good kit, never leaked water and is in good condition.

I have a 2004 USA import and have had no issues with parts, MOT's or servicing.

The original indicators are larger than the UK/Euro models and as above originally are always on and flash off, this would have been sorted by the shop that imported the bike.

Both my headlights are on all the time and dip flat, there is no pass/headlight flash and no hazard switch.

Two tone paint and reflectors on the forks and under the side of the seat.

I have had mine since new in 2004 and it has never missed a beat.

As above, or any good automotive paint suppliers (normally one in every big town)

I got a match from a shop in Harold Hill, turns out it is a Honda colour too, perfect match.

I needed it because my aftermarket belly pan dragged on the floor and the clamps moved on the frame removing paint.
