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. :cheeky:

 

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.

:sweat:

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... :smile:

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. :confused:

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.
