Question about Yamaha FZS 600 S Fazer Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 2007 YAMAHA FAZER 600 S2 that I brought into the UK from South Africa. I was forced to change the speedometer from a KPH one to a MPH one in order to pass the SVLA test. I sourced a second hand unit which reads MPH and KPH; changes with the press of the button; specific to the UK market I'm told. However, it over-reads wildly. 50 mph reads as 82 MPH or 118 KPH!! How do I fix this? The model code for my bike is 4S81-070 (South African market). Delvin

How can you tell if a coil pack is breaking down on a 2007 fazer 600 s2?


Sounds like a timing issue. Make sure all of the ignition components are in place and verify the ignition timing is advancing to the 40 degree range with RPMs above 3000. Good time to examine valve timing and cam chain tensioners too. Sounds late or lean.

I have a 2007 Bonneville purchased in Switz but now registering in the UK. The speedometer is in KPH and must read MPH - can I just replace the KPH faceplate with an MPH faceplate or do I have to replace...


Hi. I have a 2006 Bonneville which needs changing to K.P.H. as I have just moved to France. I also have to change the headlight lense, how do you fancy doing a straight swop. My speedo has nearly 10,000 miles on the odometer

How to convert an Australian spec 2008 R1 from KPH to MPH?


Hi rico,

why would you wanna change something so ignificant to your bike, how many times do you actualy look at how fast your are going? The UK now also have the max,speed allowed in KM on the signs, if that's what you're worried about?
Did you already check what the price will be for shipping and assurance on the shipping to the UK? I would sell the bike...put that money with the money saved on shipping and assurance, and buy a new one in the UK. I see tow positives in doing so...you will get the 09 model and it has the switchable kph/mph.
anyways, goodluck in relocating to the UK.
friendly greetings.............Gilbert.
