Hi Ricardo, Here are some pics of my 1986 FZX
I have changed the back end to the now popular XJR 1200 with a fat 180 tyre. And
the front is a TDM 850, I thought as I was going to need the trees for the FZR
front and the only thing around fleabay at the time was the whole front end I
may as well chuck it all on, so I did. There is enough forks through the trees
to add clip ons, so maybe I will go that way with it. The headlight is what I
bought for my Virago that I stripped to rebuild but got the FZX to ride while it
was in bits, and now I have one I cant be bothered to do the Virago cause the
Fazer is much more fun. Any way this is it upto now, Cheers

this 1986 Fazer 700 in October of 2003; it was in rough shape to say the least.
It obviously had been wrecked, but the engine and tranny were still in good
shape. That winter I started tearing it apart to give it a full
restoration, well after discovering how rare and expensive OEM parts were I
decided to go a different route. I
switch gears and was now going to do a modern rendition of what a modern Fazer
should look like (I feel Yamaha miss the mark with their current FZ1000 and
FZ750). So 21/2 years later I
finial finished my creation I call it the 06’ R7 Fazer.
Below I have listed out all the changes that went into this bike:
and Triple Tree, calipers and discs: Off a 94’ ZX9
Front Wheel and fender: off a 01 ZX6
Headlight and windscreen: off a 99 CBR 600, (trimmed)
Custom Handle bars and clamps: Hand made
shock and caliper: off 03 R6 (extensive
Rear frame mods)
Rear wheel, Disc and sprocket: off 01 R1
Rear Taillight: off 01 ZX6 (extensive
Rear frame mods, turning signals wired into taillight)
Custom Fiberglass rear fender: Hand made
Seat and seat cover: Re-shaped original and re-upholstered with leather
Re-located battery and coolant burp bottle
Veypor Digital Display (Excellent product)
Custom License plate bracket and headlight bracket: Hand made
Ported and polished head
Thinner Cylinder gasket (raised compression to 11.8:1)
New rings and hone job
Re-seated valve and lash settings
Custom 4 into 2 into 1 Exhaust with Vance & Hines silencer and copper heat
wrap: Hand Made
Rebuilt Carbs with stage III jetting and single pod air filters
Dyna Coils and wires
All parts were custom painted
Note: I sent nothing out to be done by a professional; I completed everything (paint,
fab and assembly) in the comfort of my garage.
I’d like to think Ricardo and all you Fazer
fans out there for inspiring me to do this project by have such a great website
and forum. And last but certainly
not least I’d like to thank my wife for putting up with the mess in the garage
for the last 2 ½ years.

"The bike was totally original when I got
her and all ive done is the following:
1. had the seat re-shaped and recovered.
2. Adapted a small sissy bar taken from a harley. (no badges on it, thank god)
3. New exhaust system.
About to make a start on:
1. Fitting FZR1000 unpside down forks onto front.
2. Fancy paint job, when I can decide design.

Robert from the UK built this custom FZX, that
show us what can be done with this unique classic. Great to see aproaches
on custom building other than the typical streetfighter. Great work Bob. Look
forward to see the finished project.
Thought I'd send you latest pics of my FZX.Seat has yet to be covered (have
drawn it in on photo). Radiator cowls are modified Triumph items made into
one piece with bullet indicators added. Rear mudguard was made by chopping old
seat unit and plastic welding a new section of guard onto it. K&N filters
have replaced stock airbox with stage 3 dynojet kit. Exhaust is Marving.
Front brake and clutch lines are now Goodridge - master cylinders stripped and
polished. Bars are 1 1/4" Yamaha Star accessories,so all original controls
have been ground to fit then polished. Wiring has been lengthened for switchgear
and clocks so nothing goes tho' headlight (all conect where airbox was). Frame
now needs powder coating black after some minor work (adding and removing some
brackets) and hoping it'll be on the road for spring. The flame paint was done
at work (Dream Machine of Nottingham) by myself and a little help from
If you'd like to put these pics in your 'Hall of fame', that would be great;
will send more when it's finally done.

Hi, my name is Mike and I live in
North Carolina, USA. Here are some pics of the 1986 Fazer I just got from a
buddy of mine (32,200miles). These will be the before pictures although it
already has a kerker 4 to 1 exhaust and some K&N filters. I am in the
process of getting a stock exhaust back on it and rebuilding the carbs. It also
is missing a few pieces here and there which I hope to get on Ebay. The rest
should polish out nicely so stay tuned!

bought some new shocks, progressive 12 series, they seem to work quite well.
I took the swingarm to a shop and has them press it out 10mm more for hub clearance. They made a jig to
keep everything even and bent the rear of the swingarm back in so all is parallel. Hope you

The job was on changing some parts which had been preparing from a long time ago.
But now the dream comes true...

OK OK the point of customizing is:
1. Real great looking and even better yealling MIG exhaust cans.
2. A wheel from YZF 1000 R Thunderace, but not stock ( Wider - 6,25 rim by DEGET Racing Germany)
3. Thunderace swingarm machineworked for Showa rear suspension.
4. Great paintwork of wheel made by me and one of my best friends.
5. New aftermarket rear lamp and blinkers, handlebar, and grips :)
This the first stage of fightering ma yama.
Can`t do more cause my wallet is now empty like the lake on a Sahara :)
Now I`m really poor and really HAPPY!!!
Next stage (2nd) will be front wheel ;)

Harlan from the US owns this '86
Fazer and here's what he has to say about it:
Hi! Great site I stumbled onto. Nice to see all the Fazers out
there. I 've just purchased my second 86' Fazer700. It's in great shape and rides great too!. I've been riding around for
"Bike Week" in Daytona Beach (March 05'). I get a lot of looks and most people have not seen
one. I guess it's rare for the U.S.. All stock (Soon to change) except for 4 into 1 with
Supertrapp. Also I owned a Fazer700 back in 91'. This is the next one I saw, So I grabbed
it! Fast Bike. Harlan.
Pascal from Holland sent these

the paintwork is awesome, the upside down forks, the two huge exhaust cans...
everything looks top notch! Great work! What a truly amazing FZX. Don't hide it
in the garage. Go ride it and show it off to the rest of the world!

Fred's FZX with
Yamaha TDM850 rear wheel, which to my current knowledge, seems to be the easiest
way to have a 17" rear wheel fit to our FZX
The only things that needed to be done (to fit the Yamaha TDM850 rear wheel) is
add a little washer (2 mm as far as I remember) on one side of the wheel on the
rear axle, to get spot on adjustment.
I can't remember if this was compulsory, but because I got the wheel from a
friendly broker who also gave me for free the rear disk and brake master
cylender support, I also fitted these ones to save a bit of weight. To do this,
I only had to saw a little part of the brake support so that it
be not in contact with the swingarm. This did not take much time to fit this on,
and a simple metal handsaw was required.
Now I can really feel the difference in the handling of the bike. However
note that you cannot fit huge tyres on this rear wheel, the standard one
is 150, but I got a 160 MEZ4 on it that works really well, and I did not want
any bigger so that the bike still turns and handles as well as it did before.
I have now installed a new engine (3500km) on my bike that I got from the same
broker, and will send photos to Ricardo as soon as I get hold
of a digital camera.
PS: Ricardo, I am the one that contacted one or 2 monthes when I could
not get my new engine starting. I found the solution to have a 4AM engine
work with a 2JE electrical wiring, and the CDI from a 750FZ. I do not have time
to explain this now cause I am at work, but if someone
needs the info, it needs to swap a few connections on the wiring and it works
really well. I am now running the engine in, and I can't wait
to push it to its limits, as it feels quite stonger than the original engine, I
polished the intake and exhaust ports, the explosion chamber, and
a few other bits, and more power seems to be here!!! my max speed was 245 km/h
on the speedo before, and I think I will be able to beat
owns this 1989 FZX with more than 140000km.
This is an immaculate FZX that surely deserves to be seen.

Ger from the Netherlands sent
this pic of his monoshocked Fazer.
sending you now a photo of my Fazer,
when i bought her she was nasty red, and because i am 48 years young, a more
modest color seemed more in place,
see for jour self, still she rides like a bullit on weels, i am very content
with the colors, now i only need a new pair off mufflers, maybe a hole new
exhaustline, to get it is no problem, only to pay it, hmm..... moneypain!
Kind regards, Ger.
Check out Jason's mods on his
Fazer. FZR1000 front and back ends.
"I finished up my Fazer mods for
this year............until next winter! Here is what I've done and I will
include pics if the Yahoo server will let me........
Swapped a 1988 FZR1000 front end
and wheel. VERY easy! All I had to do was cut the "fork stop"
off of the top of the frame so the ignition for the FZR would fit flush.
3.5 inch wheel, radial tire, HUGE brakes!!!!!!
Round headlight from a CB750 (1978 vintage LOL)with front turn signals
mounted on the "ears" of the headlight bucket.....again VERY easy to
K&N pod filters, stage 3 jets, used 4 into 1 with Supertrapp universal
Aluminum swingarm from a 1985 FZ750 with (UGLY) shock mounts welded on.
This is a little wider inside than the stock swing and obviously, aluminum!
Uses stock brake mount/spacer also. Just took two old FZX axles and
welded them together to make a longer axle....axle diameter on 18 inch wheel
is the same as the FZX (17mm).
1987 FZR1000 18 x 4.5 in rear wheel with Avon tire. With the swingarm it
was also VERY easy. Had the FZR spacer machined down 4 mm and added a 2
mm spacer behind the sprocket.......things lined up pretty easily. Had
to move the rear brake arm over to the outside of the brace but just used a
longer bolt to attach it (the stock rear for the FZR is the same as the FZX).
Upped the rear sprocket to 46 teeth, which meant I needed a 110 link 530 chain
(stock for FZR is 532, I bought a "conversion sprocket" that will
also fit later 17 inch rear wheels). Also sprocket is lightweight
Rear fender is chopped with stock turn signals, but going to buy a taillight/
turn signal combo device (someone posted once how to do this without the
kit........anyone remember how?).
Luggage rack is from some guy in France via EBay......they sell them on some
web sites in the E.U. It is bigger than the stock Yamaha one and mounts
to the grabrail bolt holes with stock bolts.
SO, she is now a great bike, better than before........there is actually a
decent choice of 18 inch tires out there, and the mod was SO easy.......I
might try the 17 inch swap this winter and look for a better sounding/ looking
Thanks a MILLION for ALL of the help guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. I now have 3 rear wheels, 1
front wheel, front discs, and some front brake parts that I don't need and
nobody wanted off of EBay. Let me know if you need them and make a fair

Nice mods, that flow real good with the FZX sillouette.
Keep up the excelent work, Richy.
This is one mean machine everyone
should take a good look at.

Hi Ricardo, great site, and
nice to see so many Fazers (Phazers?) together in
Please find attached some pix of my own FZX, an accident damaged repair,
with a Z1000 top fairing, which I think sets the bike off nicely and allows
high speed cruising.
And another FZX, this time from
I live in Norway and have just got my FZX Fazer.
I think its a american edition because its a 700cc. I send you a pic of the bike.
Hi, my name is Nick
stumbled onto your website one day and was amazed
by all the information about this awesome bike. It is hard to find websites
that have any information about them. I would love for you to put the
pics of my bike on your website.
It is a U.S. fazer, as you can tell from the 700cc instead of the 750cc. It
has 13,600 miles. I bought it with
11,000 miles and I had never heard of it before
and I was stunned when I went to pick it up. I was shocked by how fast
it is, also.
The previous owner drilled holes in the exhaust, and it sounds
MEAN. Hope to see my pics on the site soon.
from the US sent
these pics of his Fazer.
"Thanks, love the site. Long
live the FAZER!
My name is David from Peterborough in England.
Thought i would send you a few pics of my FZX that i have just finished
Its a 1987 model, was totally standard when i
bought it a year ago but as you can see i have done a few things to it.
I stripped it down to the frame last november and
then started rebuilding it and changing and
modifying some bits along the way.
I have listed below some of the main things ive had done to it :
Custom paint ( black with purple pearlecent + ghost
flames on the tank )
This was done profesionally and they did a stunning job, these pictures do
not do the quality or colour of the paint job any credit.
Done by GTA Powersports.
JMC 7020 box section swingarm.
Which not only looks great but has stiffened up the whole back end of the bike.
Modified and re'covered Seat.
Modified rear mudguard and light.
Goodridge clutch & brake hosing.
One off 4-1 stainless steel exhaust system with race can ( sounds great ).
Made by Predator Exhausts.
One off stainless steel ( 3mm gauge ) radiator guard.
This was laser cut to give me the lettering i wanted.
The list goes on .....................
Ive had loads of compliments from fellow bikers, even some Harley riders !!
There are still a few things left to do but they will wait until next winter,
at the moment im happy doing what FZX's were
designed for, and that's enjoying riding my bike.
Check out the
latest update Frans from the Netherlands made to his Fazer.
Along with the FZR1000 motor he had previously fitted, his Fazer now features a
ZXR400 front end and a FZR1000 rear end with a monoshock converted frame.
Robert from Wales sent the
I hope you will include me
on your web site.
The bike is a 1989 model from Portugal the bike it has been dynojetted and
a k&n filter fitted. No other mods at the moment but hopefully I will get the wheels changed to the 17"...
Bye for now
And check out Bart's
silver FZX with and underseat exhaust system. I must say it's the first FZX I
see with this kind of exhaust and it looks great!
I really like your site, and since I'm a proud owner of a 750 fzx '94, i thought
i would send you pictures of what i have done with it.

Ride safe brother

many bikes but this one has been the best. got it as a temperary replacement but
love it that much I'm keeping hold of it."

Here is Alex's
(BBreaker) '92 FZX750
Alex is from France and here are the specs on his FZX:
- Totally stock except the 4 in 1 exhaust made by Hindle (Which by the way
seem to be still available). The European Hindle Distributors are Stampeeders,
- Removed metal rear fender.
- Alex didn't mentioned, but it has aftermarket shocks that look like Fournales
standing out from the crowd. Check out Tom
Witt's Fazer, especially
its "Chamealeon" paintjob. The picture doesn't do it justice, this
paint has to be seen live to be appreciated. It changes from blues to purples
depending on the angle of vision and the amount of light available.
I have been coming to your site for a while now. So much useful info.
Well here are some pictures of my Fazer, it's the second one I have had.
Foolishly selling the last and buying an R6, mmm great you can go 150mph without
the slightest vibrate. Fun or what? NOT. aren't we supposed to feel like we are
So I bought this Fazer a month ago. 1991 Mainly standard (for the moment)
Probably put Vmax shocks on though.
Custom paint job as you can see from the tank.
Mig pipes (not seen them on any other Fazer) and she roars.
Loud, fast and feels like a bike should.
Not selling this one off, too much fun.
FZX custom paint (great) and MIG pipes which I never seen before on a FZX
either, make it really stand out from the crowd.
Check out Loafman's
FZX at http://www.loafman.co.uk/
He's planning some
really trick mods on his FZX, including a monoshock conversion, so my advice is
go check it out!
BTW, his MP3 musics are way cool too! Keep up the good work.
Check out Gery's

Your site is wonderful!!

My FZX of this photograph is 750cc of Japanese specification.
The exhaust pipe with which my FZX is equipped is called "COBRA.", it

"SP-TADAO" is the tuning production in Japan.
A rear suspension is a product made from white power.
Furthermore, I own FAZER700 of Export specification, and it is under restoration
I am going to try engine tuning, change to a 17 inch wheel, etc. after this.
I will be going to send a photograph, if work advances.

Hi Ricardo, just bought a 700 FAZER a few days ago and after my first ride i am

bike! And no, i will not alter it in any way. I like it the bike as is ;-)

He rides a '87 Fazer700. Just to let you know that Carsten is particulary good
in machining stainless steel parts, namely footrests, triple trees and so on, so
if you drop him a line and ask him nicely, maybe he can arrange you something.

"Found your excellent site..I've got an 1986 FZX750 with 42,000km. It had
Dynojet stage three, K&N filters and FZX1000 Carbs with specially made carb
rubbers to attach it to the engine... I got 15bhp and shed loads more torque
when I replaced the standard carbs...
Totally agree with your thoughs about the fzx. I've also got a streetfighter
bandit 600 with the wiseco 889cc bore-out kit and the fzx still pulls faster
than the bandit.. or anything else for that matter!
My favourite pastime is fucking off R1 & CBR1000 riders at the traffic
lights.. They get a shock when I take off and they only catch up at the next set
I've got to sort out my front suspension as its is too soft.. I bounce round
corners at the moment...
Just seen your dynojet graphs...I'll send over my ones and you'll see that the
torque on mine is a lot smother and remaims right up there until the end range.
This is because of the carbs..the 1000 carbs are better suited to the 750 engine
(especially with the dynojet kit)."

Awesome site! After thirteen years of riding a 700 Maxim I was finally able to
get a 1987 Fazer. It has nineteen thousand miles. All my neighbors keep
saying they wish they could have one too!
I wanted one of these for thirteen years before getting one and
now that I have it I cant beleave it!! This thing is so much fun it has got to
be some kind of sin or something!!!
People keep asking me if they still make them where can they get them and so on
and so on! They should have kept making them for the states! Anyway
this thing is a blast even my boss keeps asking to ride it!! And now the point
of this note is just to let you and everyone else know just how proud I am to
have this thing!!!!!!!
