    Default New to FZ1,,, querys

    Hi all, I'm new to the FZ1, although I currently have a R6,, just a question, I've recently purchased my FZ1, it's a 2003 model, in excellent condition, although the choke doesn't seam to work much, although the mechinizm seam to be in full working order, , just doesn't seam to open up enough, also when setting off in first, it kinda shudders, until it gets going then it's fine, feels as though it wants to wheel spin, even though in not putting much revs on.... any comments greatly appreciated

    I would check for any kinks in the cable routing as well as lubing it up. For an 03', who knows when it was lubed last. As for the shuddering, try some Sea Foam in the gas and run it for a few miles. The carbs may need a cleaning and also synched up.
