    Hi there everyone!

    Great to know that there's a lot of fazer riders out there in Singapore. Im riding one fazer 600 04 model too.

    Any of you guys know where to get those good side box (GIVI or Hardpacs) with brackets? I'm going to Pahang next month. Need the boxes to put the things. Thought you guys can help me on this.

    Thanks

    Halo fellow fazer riders!

    I jus collect my fazer600 and i am proud to be a fazer owner. Can feel the bike running smooth even not run-in yet. I have a few ques here n hope the senior fazer owners can help mi.

    1) the shop's mech told mi to run-in to 3k but i saw from the manuel is run-in until 1.6k. so do i follow the mech or the manuel?

    2) my fan cut in when the temp indication is at the 4th bar. is it normal?

    3) the mech say that the rpm will settle down to 900-1000 plus range after the bike have warmup but jus now at the traffic lights, i happen to see the rpm at 1300plus. So wat is the normal idling rpm?

    Hope someone can answer my above ques.
    up to you... I was told that when the tacho display is still blinking, its still warming up, so wait until it stops flashing then start to ride.

    I dun think anyway amount of running in is necessary as long as you are law abiding. you will never exceed the recommended limits one...

    Congrates on your new ride...

    Hi MC21

    First of all welcome to the club,ur question

    1) I too follow the book 1st change the engine oil when I took out the bike then 2nd change at 1.5k then 3rd change 3k.

    2) the fan start at 4th bar is normal n aft some time it will return to 3 bar,sometimes aft u off ur engine when the fan is on and then when u turn on d key again u get temp gauge full indication it is normal,the temp gauge should return to normal.

    3) (rpm indicates 1300)-tats wat the book told u right,I m having my rpm at 1250-1350 after warm up, surely the yamaha don any how print and told u wrong info,right. (I try 1000 but when engage to 1st gear from neutral it was not smooth, but not so at 1300- my encounters only but don know whether others hav d same). And don forget this is still a R6 engine but detune for smooth low n mid range, after all it is still a racing concept engine.

    Hope this helps enjoy your ride n do join us in future gathering to learn more....

    hey CKC, something i noticed when I read your manual.

    Check under the tyres pressure.

    On high speed or heavy load, it recommends lower pressure, which is opposite of my manual for the 1k. Any comments on this?

    And I though suppose to lower the pressure when traveling, track or heavy load cuz d air in d tyre will expand when warm up, tats wat I hear from most riders here and oversea.even my mech say tat.
    But for pillion u should increase n follow d psi stated, tats wat I do.
    maybe can see ur manuel and compare.

    Can anyone comment on the supposed poor mid-range for FZ6, especially when compared to the previous model? Most of the mag reviews say it's one downside of the latest model. Any comments on whether city riding suffers because of that? Very likely getting one by mth-end after my test. Comments much appreciated.

    oic anyway u can check what type of box they are giving u. If they give u those "pa lia" boxes then maybe u can consider getting a better box urself.. cuz my frenz purchase a runner from them and they give him one taiwan brand box which drop off half way in the expressway..

    can u tell us more on wat the mags say abt this bike
    The reviews basically comment that this bike is built much more for top-end performance, which comes only after 10k rpm. The give-up is the mid-range, so lower speed city riding requires more changes among the lower gear to keep within the power band. This is probably the way the engine has been detuned from the R6 engine, which was naturally built for top-end performance. So while it churns out more horses than the previous model, the usable band is much higher up the rpm range. This is what I gathered, and not my own views, cause I never rode the new model, only the previous one which was discontinued due to emission standards.

    Anyway, just put downpayment on a 2nd hand one. Finally settled on the FZ6 as I think it looks much better than the Hornets, and also I need to pillion. I love the FZ1 too, but just felt it is too tall and heavy for my liking. Hope I pass my TP end of the month, otherwise, the bike will be sitting there and gathering dust (or worse, rust).

    I hope to install an engine guard and a top box. Interested in side boxes too - can they be installed without much mod to the bike? Appreciate if anyone can share where would be good place to get one done.

    Also, any other basic accessories I should consider, and where to get them?

    Thanks all.

    its always up to the rider whether he/she choose to buy a new bike or 2nd hand bike. I have been through a terrible expirence with my 2nd hand bike so now i dun mind to pay more $$ to get a brand new bike.

    if u talk about the power of midrage, mayb the FZ6 no as powerful as FZS, but I thk tht a little bit less power u wouldnt obviously feel BUT if u compare both bike's slower speed smoothness...then FZ6 sure win alot...bcos FZ6 is FI, FZS is carb.

    High speed ah...everytime touring I was at last ( or moka will at last ), so I sure FZ6 can go very fast. My FZS top speed is around 230kmh...So i thk FZ6 shd faster then FZS...but mayb just abit lah (dun expect it faster then FZ1 )...

    for my FZS, 200kmh still feel stable, but I have to lying down abit deal with my standard windshied. No touring every week...so thk no need to change tht, but is up to u lah~

    Any feedback at all? Apprec it cause quite lost when it comes to accessories. Don't want to be ripped off or fix something that'll screw the bike up. Thanks.
