Have sold my Fazer 1000  :(   and bought a KTM RC8R  :)   , so it's good bye from me

Thanks to all who've helped/hindered me during my time as a Foccer.

My 2008 Fazer 1000 now for sale at Mounters KTM in Pontypridd for £3795 - a bargain for someone. (Akra pipe, Nitron shock, Rossi paint) Hoping it goes to a good home!

Good luck all

Ride safe

Offering for sale my 2008 Fazer 1000

27,000 miles, good condition. 6months tax + 12 months MOT

Service history from Mounts Motorcycles

Valentino Rossi Laguna Seca 2005 paint job

Official Yamaha fairing side panels, Akrapovic can, K+N filter, Nitron Sports shock, tail tidy and, if it fits your head, matching helmet. New chain + sprockets 2000 miles ago and new Michelin tyres around 1500 miles ago.

I have had this bike from new and it has taken me all over this country, France, Spain and Holland without ever missing a beat, but after 5 years I am fancying a change (have my eye on a KTM RC8  :eek  )

Located approx 12 miles west of Swansea, 1 mile off the M4, message me if you would like to view / test it.

All sensible offers considered, but please note that I know what it's worth, am NOT desperate to sell it and am not going to give it to you!!

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Gen 2 ABS Brakepad change
« on: 05 May 2013, 10:37:38 pm »
Never changed the front brake pads on an ABS bike (or car) before (2008 Fazer 1000)

Is there anything special I need to know or is it just as easy as non ABS?

Do you store the bike outside where it could have had damp start eating away at it ?

Bike lovingly kept in garage about 3 metres from central heating boiler, under a woolly blanket! Car kept outside where the damp HAS started eating away at it (who cares!!)

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Flat Battery - ABS warning light on
« on: 10 April 2013, 09:04:10 am »
After only riding my 2008 FZ1 a couple of times over the winter, I went to start it after having new tyres fitted and found the battery flat.   :'(
After bump starting it for the ride home I found the red ABS warning light had come on and stayed on until I switched the motor off at home.   :eek
Will be replacing the battery today and am wondering wether the ABS light came on as a result of a not fully charged battery or wether there actually is a fault with the ABS.   :(
Anyone got any idea please?

I am 55 today  and really pissed off 'cos it's pissing down and blowing a gale that means it's not really a sound plan to go for a spin on my "other bike", an Aprilia RSV-R.

The fact that it's probably the slowest ridden RSV in the UK does not bother me one little bit, because when I am out on it I truly am Max Biaggi (or at least a tall, fat, old version from South Wales, Dai Biaggi)

The point is, I can't imagine a time when I won't want to feel like Max Biaggi now and again.

For fecks sake don't sell it, keep it in the shed, go and sit on it and talk to it (we all do that don't we?!) now and again and go out on the days you feel like a spin and be your Max Biaggi.

Budget is not huge but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks folks

I have MP3s of the original radio series if that is of any use to you.

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: Rear wheel nut size on Gen 2 FZ1
« on: 27 January 2012, 02:09:22 pm »
Believe its a 32mm.
Bought a 32mm socket after reading in "Hot Poop" that 32mm was the correct size for front sprocket nut removal.  Front sprocket nut turned out to be 36mm and the only thing I could find on the bike that a 32mm socket fitted was the rear axle nut.

Yo Bro
Just been out the shed and put a tape over it (don't have micrometer) and, looking down on the top of the LH fork at about the nine o'clock position (kerbside) the top yoke measures 18mm (+/- 0.5mm) would be my best estimate.

Don't move that bike, I think you've parked it on a landmine!

A few of obvious ones (having just got in from the pub!)
1. Make sure your AA/RAC cover will get the bike home if things should go shit shaped (took a Harley to Europe 3 times and only came back on it once!)
2. Europe is much bigger than the UK so expect places to be further than you think.
3. Pack your top box/panniers/haversack etc etc then take half the stuff out because you won't need it. (have toured abroad at least a dozen times and STILL pack too many pants/tee shirts/woolies!)
4. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy - roads are better, food is better, attitudes to bikers are MUCH better! 
Have a brill trip!

General / Re: What did you do to your bike today?

Finally completed re-assembly after paint job (front indicators are b******s through fairing lowers!)
Fitted new Akrapovic pipe and Evotech tail tidy   :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup
