Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Switch or motor?

Sorry, I just realised that you have a Gen1 FZ and I have a Gen2 - doh!  I am afraid that I have no idea where the connections would be on your bike, probably best to wait for the manual unless somebody else can shine a bit of light on the subject.

Another possible option would be to go onto the website of a genuine Yamaha dealer as a lot of them will have a microfiche type program which has exploded views of every system on your bike ie fuel, electrical, suspension, braking etc so that you can get the part numbers for ordereing.  One of these views will show the fan relay and its location.  I would guess it may be labelled 'Cooling Fan Relay' possibly.  Just used one of these to order a new plastic instrument cover but it is a Spanish dealer so of no use to you.  I have however come across the same thing on British and American websites so it is just a case of looking.

Good Luck

The fans should come on automatically when the temp reaches 100 degrees and go off again when it drops below 94 or 95.  There is a relay located under the seat which controls this.  Don't know where the temp sensor is though, sorry.  I have actually fitted a flick switch to turn the fans on manually as I feel that 100 degrees is too late to be bringing the fans on.  As i live in a hot country, I turn the fans on when I am in town by wiring direct from a switch to the relay an in effect making the contact.  You could test the relay by simply bridging between the terminals to see if the fans come on.  If they work then the problem may be with the sensor if not then the relay will be at fault.

The relay is small and black with a white/clear connector coming out of the main loom. It is located behind the battery and directly under the front seat release mechanism (not key on the side but where the seat clips into).  The white/clear connector has four wires - Red, Brown with Green stripe, Red with White stripe and Grey.  The Grey wire is much smaller and this is the one you want.  If you touch a wire between where the small grey wire is connected and the battery NEGATIVE terminal (ie earthing the connection) with the ignition on the fans should come on.  This is a volt-free contact so no chance of shock!  As I said above, if the fans run then the problem may well be with the temp sensor.
Also setting at what temp the fan comes on is not adjustable without adding more complicated electronics.

The link I have included below is what I used to install my manual running switch which has some pictures and may be of use to you.  It is for an older model FZ1 but the principle is the same.

Hope this is of use and good luck. ;)

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / FZ1 N Headlight
« on: 29 June 2011, 04:32:37 PM »
Can anyone help?  I am looking for a headlight for a 2006 FZ1N as mine is smashed, I don't have £400+ for a new one but cannot find one second hand for love nor money.  I have scoured the net and cannot find one anywhere.  I have even tried partfinder and there were no replies from any breakers.
I am currently living in Spain where they have type approval so I can only fit the original item, hence I am off the road until I get one.  I don't know if there is a difference between the UK and Europe lights (ie we drive on different side of the road) or if they are one in the same.
I cannot locate one here in Spain, or Portugal and my French and German is not good enough to try there.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.  :'(
