Owners’ Overall Rating (41

I’ve owned my Fazer for a year now. I split my time between two bikes, very different. The Fazer has ergonomics, the screen works well, its a true no-fuss of a bike, happy to plod in traffic doing the commute to or be let loose in a frenzy of high along country roads, an all-rounder of a bike.

Standard is ok, it’s capable of hustling very quickly, its not an R1 in the handling but it can hold its own for sure, and the Blue R1 calipers can stop it very too. One critism i do have is the end feeling vague with feedback, but there is still a amount of grip with the Pilot Road 2’s so to worry about. I get 55-60mpg, in 10 months/4000 miles has been

I can’t fault the Fazer or how its put considering its age there’s little to no and the engine is a peach, using no oil at all being 15yrs old now. the gearing(lower gears) is not longer as gearing makes it quite a bike, but go changing the front to +1/+2 teeth and you lose all the feeling this bike so my advice is to stick to standard Yamaha got it perfectly matched to the torque curve from the

Tbh, put aside the vague end complaint and the poor headlights and you one of the best all round bikes out for less than £1200 you can’t go wrong. Add heated and a Givi top box like i have and its got you need from a bike.

the only thing it does is charactor, but many IL4’s do so its my Ducati Monster will be my favourite because it has charactor and is but its not a commuter’s choice, and its not a distance either. Fazer does of those and more. I guess its one of those bikes you take for because it does everything day in, day without fuss or expense, and you really truly appreciate it you’ve sold it and then back and realise just how it really was!

For commuting, the exhaust is ace on those early 5.30am starts, nice and keeps the neighbours happy, easy to keep clean and OEM fits perfect!

A 16 tooth sprocket instead of the standard 15 fits ok with no mods than adjust the chain to get the 30-45mm slack. It makes the less manic as the gearbox are very close together on 15/45t gearing, 16/45t is a mod, Renthal 289-530-16 around £12 new from shops on eBay.

Run both headlights on dipped a spare dipped-beam switch is conveniently under the tank in the box, has a blue connector, run a wire from this to the top connector of the righthand H4 bulb to get lights working. Also night breaker bulbs are to be good, tho short life may sway you more towards brands making higher claims(light output ie +50%

Heated grips, RG are cheap at and were already fitted to my but you get what you pay for. My Ducati has the new Oxford Touring Heated 2012 version with electronics in the control box to detect the engine is off and automatically switch off the grips, no more flat these cost £80 and are say, about twice as hot as the RG

I’d always recommend the RG is false economy, whats the in spending that money and fitting them when aren’t very hot? luke warm.

Michelin Sport 2 tires in standard and 160/60/17 sizes are good but a complete pain to get the bead to on the Fazer rims. Tires are too and i had to resort to a makeshift tourniquet/tie arrangement to compress the centre of the and splay out the sides in order for to seal and ‘pop’ onto the rim and Never ever had a problem Bridgestones on rims.
