    New MT10

    Take my money already. I love it. The specs compete with the S1000R, Tuono and Super Duke R with undoubtedly a better price point. My 2009 Fz1 naked looks similar already so it's easy for my eye to adapt to the look of it because I think someone at Yamaha copied my mods and updated them...

    Lost Traction

    You rode that out well. I had a situation like that a few months back. It was cold early morning and rained the night before. Went to hop on the free way and the ass of the bike kicked way out. The funny thing is when I first joined the forum I was getting my fz1 after totaling my fz6 as...

    The HOT seat

    I never did anything and just suffer through the summer. I did get a lithium ion battery and that seemed to reduce some heat but not much.

    Tons of stock Gen II FZ1 parts for sale *PICS*

    I'm interested in the gas tank (how bad is the rust?) and definitely the plastic trim piece. I have a 2009 and damaged both those parts. I'm in Scottsdale, AZ

    BMW S1000R or Apriia Tuono V4R or Super Duke 1290 or keep the Yamaha?

    The bike was not responsible for me crashing. I think that's why I said it's in the wrist and what's between the ears. I went full retard when I got my Fz1. From what I remember about the OP post in the past he seems on the conservative end and not likely to attempt to fly through a park...

    Forum Meetup -- July 25th & 26th, 2015

    I'm going to check in to this. I rode most of this route 2 summers ago. I may go up and stay in Durango then meet up in Ouray. For those talking about going to Gunnison it's a must. I stayed at Lakeview Campground and I swear it was the best place I've been in America. subbing to thread

    BMW S1000R or Apriia Tuono V4R or Super Duke 1290 or keep the Yamaha?

    I sat on the Tuono and at 6'4" my feet didn't fit on the rearsets well and the forward lean was just a little too uncomfortable. I sat on the S1000R and it fit me much better, and the SuperDuke1290 at the dealer has a sticker, please don't sit on me for it If I had the money it would be...

    Puttering and sputtering

    Basically new OEM ECU and OEM ignition caps. Just had new chain, tires, sprockets, fork seals, brake pads and Racetech spring thrown in. Also had spark plugs, air filter and oil done too. I should hopefully be good for another 40,000 miles before something else comes up, well minus consumables.

    I got it back last week. It's running now. In total it was at the shop 5.5 weeks. So after a new ECU, and OEM coil caps. it seems to be back to normal. So for the people that questioned the shop. They are Yamaha certified. They basically tore down the whole bike and rebuilt it. In the...

    There is no electricity coming out of the coil 1 wire harness plug now. The wire itself checks out. I saw him out the ohm meter on it.

    Btw to check all that stuff before they only charged me the 1 hour that they booked for doing the spark plugs and replacing the air filter.

    He's checked the wiring harmess for the headlights and said it tests fine. He tested the wiring from the ECU to the plugs for the coils and and number 1 cylinder is not receiving spark from the ECU. He showed me with ohm meter that the wire itself works so that is why they think its in the ECU...

    So I had ordered the coil caps off ebay set of 4 brand new listed as Yamaha. When they showed up they were made in China. They looked close enough. I took them to the shop and the guys said they were close enough, although they didn't quite seat themselves exactly the same (click into...

    Ive been so busy I kept forgetting. I really mentally committed to it being bad gas and hoping it would go away with SeaFoam which made it a little better for a day or two. I did call my dad to ask to borrow his laser thermometer and was going to get it in a few days. Then the morning I...

    So dropped it at the shop because it felt like I was riding a ninja 250 last Friday. Just talked to the head mechanic. They have checked. Fuel pump and fuel lines. Psi is ok. Checked fuel injector spray and is within spec Spark plugs are new and when tested ignition cool it is...

    Thank you for the tips. I will do the wet towel test later. I burnt through most of the bad gas, and it cleared up a little, not a lot. So I'm thinking if I can get through 2 more tanks with seafoam I'm hoping that does the trick.

    Hi guys, Long time no post for me. I have an issue that has started recently. On Monday I filled up at my normal filling station. The only thing that was different is I wasn't paying attention and slightly over filled. I parked the bike over night, which it rained and the bike was...
