    Hi all, from a long time Fazer owner

    Cool, thanks for advice. I provided my mechanic with these suggested values: https://www.racetech.com/ProductSearch/12/Yamaha/FZ6/2007 15wt oil, 10mm preload and 130mm airgap. Work already underway, hope to have bike back later today or tomorrow. Guess those values will give me a good starting...

    Hi all, from a long time Fazer owner

    Goodies arrived! ;-) PDQ (place I linked to above) had a 20% sale on for summer, so could hardly resist. Bike is currently with my local mechanic for fitment and full fork service (new seals etc), should have bike back for weekend. Also ordered a Nitron shock too, but they're on back order...

    Hi all, from a long time Fazer owner

    Amazon.co.uk and ebay.co.uk only have US sellers of Racetech products, all with crazy high delivery prices. Plus I'd get stumped for VAT and import duty upon arrival on top of that. Prices at the dealer I linked to seem to be about on par for UK stockists, and will likely be cheapest option for...

    Zamm

    Picked up ZAMM when stuck out in NJ on my own for a work trip few years ago. Figured it would be an interesting enough read when on my lonesome eating out in bars, restaurants and hotel after working. But wow, had me totally hooked, couldn't put it down, week later finished it on the long haul...

    Hi all, from a long time Fazer owner

    Just to confirm, is this pair the correct parts for my FZ6 S2? https://pdq1.com/product/racetech-front-fork-springs-367x345x315-85kg-frsp-s3732085 https://pdq1.com/product/racetech-fork-emulator-kit-335261170mm-fegv-s4101

    Cool, many thanks for the info! I'Il hunt down a UK supplier of parts and price up the whole job and make some decisions ready for pay day!

    Hi all, from a long time Fazer owner

    Just checking out the Racetech GVE's - looks like a good option and appears I can source them easily enough in the UK from shocktech.co.uk for £169. The dust seals on my forks are just starting to crumble a little around the edges, so could be a good time to just sort seals and fit these...

    Hi all, from a long time Fazer owner

    Countryside: That were a shot from the Welsh hills near Llanbister on trip up to see family that way. Early morning climb out of the misty valleys to get out above into the sun. Suspension wise: TBH I've only really been looking at shock replacements thus far, Hagon (as their factory is local...

    Hi all, from a long time Fazer owner

    Just signed up, figured I'd introduce myself. Picked up my first Fazer 8 years ago - a 2003 FZS600 - my first bike! Did me well for several years, learnt a lot, had a the odd mishap, but always managed to fix it up and keep going. About 1.5 years ago I swapped to a FZ6 S2 2007 - mainly due to...
