It's a bike that is really worth spending a few quid on. You start with a decent one in the first place, but a few of the right mods make it something very special, without losing any of the original good points. I might have to part with mine, and it will be the saddest biking decision I've ever made if it happens.

Try telling this to G though! Laughing

You've found a nice tidy bike that really suits you and have spent a load of cash on to make it work right for you and your needs, and also make it the best it can be for the use you have for it within reason.

I can see a very different response coming from a certain aforementioned individual who has a very clinical and objective view of such things. Laughing

Oh and hang on just a second, what's all this parting with it talk of? Shocked

I'll be buried with at least one of my money pit vehicles, I thought it was the law?

G? Who he? Wink

Parting with it...I know, I know, right?! It wouldn't be my choice, but circumstances might force it. In fact, if I was financially sensible, it'd have gone already. But I'll just hang on to it a little bit longer... Laughing

Absolute stunner ! Did you do the front end yourself?

Cheers. No, done by devilsyam on the Fazer Owners Club forum, as was the R6 rear shock (and dialled in for me by him) - Ivans Full Monty by Falcon269 (who has retired from doing these, alas).

I more or less packed in spanner twirling some years ago after wrecking my arm and shoulder in an accident. Only small stuff nowadays.

The front end is from a 5PW R1, with K-Tech internals, which just by sheer luck suited me and this bike perfectly. They were about £250 off eBay with the mods done. It required replacement front mudguard, also R1, FZ8 top yoke, R1 bottom yoke with the Fazer steering stem added, ride height adjusters (optional - keeps the standard riding position), plus brake lines.

I've never really looked at Fazers before. Sure I knew of them but stopping to look here has changed my attitude somewhat.
This bike bug really does bite..

It's one of the few bikes I've owned where I didn't really consider the looks when I first bought one. It looked ok, and a photo I saw in a magazine caught a nice angle on it, but I was more interested in having a bike to tour on that might deliver a bit of fun too - something I thought I could live with that had a bit more go than the SV650 I traded in for it. It had been reported in the bike press as a bit of a wheelie monster, so I thought it might fit the bill. Test rode one and liked it. Helped that we had three of them in at the dealer I worked for at the time, so got a good price on it.

Iíve seen devilsyam and mike (falcon) referenced all over the internet, unfortunately tho mike lives in Spain now and no longer does the ivans work and it seems devilsyam no longer tinkers with fazers either. Plenty of guides tho and Iím a fully qualified mechanic myself, and one of my best mates is a mechanical engineer and does all sorts of stuff with bikes so Iíll sort it no worries

I doubt Iíll do the fork swap, Iíll just get the Springs fitted and forks set up by ktec or someone Thumbs Up

I wasn't certain I'd do the R1 forks myself. The two things I was determined to do was the R6 rear shock and the Ivans. Those alone made a vast improvement, but whether it was just my imagination or I really was feeling it, now able to push the bike harder with those two mods, I was sure I could feel some unwanted flex in the standard forks. So I did those anyway. I've never had a repeat of that 'feeling' since. The fact the forks were already K-Tech'd was a bonus, but devilsyam, who has ridden hundreds of these in all different guises, said they were definitely a lot better than standard R1. Which I suppose shouldn't be surprising.

But lots of folks just do springs or have the standard forks otherwise doctored, and are perfectly happy with the results. Tbh, until I had the rear shock and Ivans done, I was happy with standard forks, and they were ok even then. But by then, I'd decided to put together my idea of the perfect Fazer Laughing

Nice here's mine with one of it's stable mate.
Is the Ivan kit worth it? I don't think mine has been done how would you know?

The Ivans mod is well worth it. Not only does it give you more power, but it smooths delivery, especially at low throttle positions. Over a standard bike, you will definitely notice the difference, and be pleased with the results!

From Falcon269, Ivanising guru:

Quote:
Raise the throttle plates and check the pilot circuit bypass holes. If one or two have been enlarged, the carbs are 'Ivanised'.

To find out which kit is installed, remove a float bowl and check the main jet. If it says 127.5 it's a Full Monty job. If the main is 122.5, that's a Slip On kit.


Full Monty also has part of the air box cut away, and will have a freer-breathing air filter installed (not sure if the slip-on kit has the same). Most people also remove the intake stubs (engine side) and dremel out some material from the bottom to give a less interrupted gas flow here. If a little metal is showing through the rubber, it'll be obvious.

I think the needles, which are also replaced with the Ivans kits, are marked differently too, but you can find out more about all this on the Fazer Owners Club forum:

Nothing new to say, but Fazers ought to be at the top of the page more often Mr. Green

The standard suspension sucks, to be honest wiv ya. I mentioned elsewhere that I'd been having confidence issues after my salt season lay-up, then remembered I had removed the short dog bones.

After refitting them I went for a ride today and the difference was just outstanding. It doesn't just sharpen up the steering, it actually makes a big difference to the whole feel of the bike - and U-turns are piss easy on tight roads.

Only problem for me is that my knees are starting to really ache on every ride now. The reason I bought one is that it was the comfiest bike I'd sat on when I test rode one for a couple of hours. Mine isn't quite as comfy as that one was - and I've no idea why - but it's comfy enough up to now.

I do think I'll be getting something else in the next year or two, though. Probably a retro - used to really like riding my Zephyr 750, but got fed up of the blast and stand-scraping.

The only other bike I had that came near to the Fazer comfort was the 855cc Tiger. Fantastic bike, that was, especially when fitted with appropriate road rubber instead of the pretend knobblies.

Sorry - waffling again... ahem! Rolling Eyes
