The swingarm end cap of the chain adjusting mechanism of your bike is not seated properly. Get it fixed. Make sure that the rear wheel alignment is correct when you get it done.

Hey Ranjith, when is the 1st service due for your bike and whats the mileage you are getting?

I am getting about 35-36 here in Blr. I liked the fuel tank positioning and the filler cap is wide enough for one to see the amount of fuel left in the bike.

Also, were you able to figure out a better position for the front number plate. Thinking of getting it stickered on the front mud guard. Do you think it would be feasible to fix it below the headlamp assembly?

Uday bro I haven't gone yet for another refilling after the first day of my full tank !!
I too thought of stickering on the front mud guard. I guess below the headlamp assembly would bring in troubles when the front springs compress to the full extent.

I saw in BLR they have come out with front number plates, which sits in between the meter console and headlights, with stays attached somewhere on the fork or something. The bike was passing so couldnt get a close look.

Though really didnt like the positioning, i would prefer mud guard stickers ie if local authorities dont object to the idea.

That is the standard location for the number plate. As of now even my bike has it placed there, but I am trying to figure out with the help of a local RTO guy if the stickering on the mud guards is not a problem.

I just hate that place it looks kinda awkward for the bike.

Yes if they want to they can, as per rules the numbering has to be of certain size, font and even painted and stuff!

Default Can HID kit be installed in FZ16

Hi!

Would like to know whether HID kit can be fixed in FZ16?

I have an orange FZ16, done around 1300 kms and only major issue which was sorted out by the Yamaha Workshop yesterday.

Can the mirrors be changed since the ones fitted on FZ16 are cheap look ones and if so where can we get good look ones??

Help!!

Ranjit,

you should consider removing the Saree guard, it kind of spoils the side profile -- this is supposed to be a naked bike, strip as much as possible :-)

Grafin, that number plate is very awkwardly placed - isn't there a space below the headlight unit?

When I went to Suzuki showroom for test rides, I saw all the bikes had their front number plates painted on the front mud guard. This was at Swargate suzuki, pune. So I think it will be legal for FZ owners too to paint the number and remove the number plate.

Default Hello

I got my Orange FZ on December 2nd and I am loving this bike. The riding position is great and the front disc brakes are amazing. However, let me mention some of the issues I have come across with the bike.

1) a small "motor" kind of noise is heard when i apply the front brake.
2) the chain is loose
3) the electrical wire going to the clutch lever is loose (so loose, sometimes
the bike will start on gear with out the clutch !)
4) rear brake is of inferior quality, feels like the brake pads are already
worn out
5) the seat doesn't stay snug on the bike. it keeps moving.
6) i find it hard to put on the side stand ! yes i cant find the stand without
looking for it !!

Some of the pics of my bike
