IIRC, this bike comes with dual heallamp set up. Both are dual filament HS1 35/35W. Now can you answer my following questions :

1) At low beam which bulb lights up ?
a) Right low beam filament.
b) Left bulb low beam filament.
c) Both, right and left low beam filament light up.

2) In case of high beam :
a) Right high beam filament lights up.
b) Left high beam filament lights up.
c) Both.

Or is it that one is for low beam and other is for high beam ? Do both work together, for eg., you switch on low beam, one bulb turns up, next when you switch high beam bulb one remains on with low beam and along with it, another bulb turns up for high beam ?

Yes That's how it has been set up. They work together only if you are on low beam & you pull pass switch.

I am still not clear, I am sorry for that, but doubt remains.

In low beam, one bulb operates. In high beam, the other bulb starts, but the bulb that started with low beam remains ON or OFF ?
So my question in other words is :
When high beam is ON, only one bulb is operational or both the bulbs are operational ?

As per what I have understood :-

1. Only one bulb operates at one time, i.e. One bulb is dedicated to the Low Beam & the other is dedicated to the High Beam.

2. Only under the situation where you are riding on Low beam and you happen to pull the pass switch both the lights will be working. (If you are riding on high beam already and use the pass switch both bulbs wont light up)

Hope I was clear and also hoping I am correct. As I am just trying to explain what I have understood as per Technocrat's post.

Regards,
Mantri G.

Sir, let me be on the right side of the law atleast by having a plate. as Gansan had mentioned, ideally, it should be painted as per prevailing rules, but most of us opt for stickers since we can have choice of various fonts.

Enjoy driving and update us with your experiences. Some more pics would be welcome.

PS: Are you a Ferrari fan? Insistence on Red Colour and the keychain?

Thank you Gansan & Raj. the car under the wrap is not red, but its a tangerine orange fabia I would upload more pics along with an initial report, tho I'm not an expert

Personally, i liked red the most on fazer. black & blue felt bit subdued, orange was too much flashy for a bike a. plus, my car being orange in color, i wanted a difference and opted for red.

Bit OT - ofcourse, I'm a ferrari fan. but when mika was around in mclaren, the mclaren-ferrari was 51%-49% in my mind. then with kimi in mclaren, it was 40-60, and when kimi moved to ferrari, it turned 100% for ferrari. but deep inside, i love the mika-schumi battles. the keychain was gifted to me by a friend who is a die-hard ferrari fan

in low beam, only the left bulb operate. in high beam, only the right bulb operate. however, if you keep the hi/lo switch in mid-position, both bulbs would work simultaneously. in low beam, you can operate the right bulb by using the pass/flash button. but the left bulb won't operate if you use the pass button while in "high" mode.

Nice. Hows the wind protection at high speed. Is it really a good touring bike?

Careful with the metal keychain as it tends to stratch the paint on the triple clamp. I swiched to leather.

With great patience come great machines. He he. The number plate is an eye sore.
When I saw the Fazer review on one of the channels, the dude had only one headlamp on. I thought of it as a niggle, but both lamps do have a purpose as I read.

Imo this is the best looking bike made and sold in the country. I wish it had a few more CCs and horses.

Congrats Mysticeyes.

As for the registration number plate, opt for the highsecurity number plates in lieu of the current set. It will look good and it's legal.

Welcome to the Club,

The fazer is a looker in any colour and RED does complete justice to the Bike. Great choice my friend. But for me the BLACKS always Beautiful. Will surely post picks of my bike this weekend.


Bit OT - ofcourse, I'm a ferrari fan. but when mika was around in mclaren, the mclaren-ferrari was 51%-49% in my mind. then with kimi in mclaren, it was 40-60, and when kimi moved to ferrari, it turned 100% for ferrari. but deep inside, i love the mika-schumi battles. the keychain was gifted to me by a friend who is a die-hard ferrari fan


Nice to know you to are a Ferrari Fan, the only diference with me is that Ferrari rules and the drivers come n go. (From Schumi to Mika to Massa to Nico & Sutil)


in low beam, only the left bulb operate. in high beam, only the right bulb operate. however, if you keep the hi/lo switch in mid-position, both bulbs would work simultaneously. in low beam, you can operate the right bulb by using the pass/flash button. but the left bulb won't operate if you use the pass button while in "high" mode.[/quote]

Hey i agree that one bulb works at one time only when we use Pass/Flash button does both work together. I tried keeping the hi/lo switch in mid-position but it doesnt work. Check it out dude.
but i have seen a frazer in bangalore which has been modified to both the bulps to work together on Low beam and only the right one works on high Beam.

The distance covered is still low thanks to various conditions but still, i felt that a few more horses could've made the bike more enjoyable. however the engine is very refined and the power delivery is very smooth even while picking up from a slow moving traffic.

I'm planning to change the number plates soon. its a very tricky method to keep the hi-lo switch in mid position. I've mastered the same and both the bulbs work But I'm bit worried about the load it can take and hence don't ride with the switch in mid.

As for the delay, I heard that the waiting is more than 60 days in Chennai. Red seems to've the most waiting

@Mysticeyes : Congrats on your ride! The fazer looks real good in red.

My friend has bought a fazer and he has installed a relay for the headlights so that they work simultaneously. He said that the relay used was actually meant for a car.

OT: The house and the garden looks real cool. Can we have more pictures of tha same .

thank you fast elegance. from the rides so far, i feel that the suspension is bit on the hard side, especially when you are in front. at times, we can feel the bad stretches, which can be quite uncomfortable. guess its the same case from the RX 100 days onwards..yamaha won't be yamaha if the suspension character changes

fazer is turning out to be a very good city bike rather than a tourer. the lack of horses is felt clearly in long rides. but its negated by the ease of drive in the tight city rides. the bike would go where we want and feels really in our control. its the "feedback" as in the case of the steering feedback from fabia or punto
