    DenArnold still around

    Adelaide Dyno

    He'd have the maps he did for my bike as a starting point, then fine tune from there for your bike. When I spoke to him, he couldn't get into the FZ1 ECU, he rang up to try to get the code to unlock it but it wasn't available back then. They must have either changed their stance or he has new...

    Adelaide Dyno

    Wow, His prices have gone up! I got Nevil to tune my bike 3 times after progressive mods (can and air filter, then full system, then post flash) I'd recommend getting your ECU flashed, get all the engine mods you want done (i.e. exhaust, air filter, air box if you want to do that flies etc.)...

    Anyone here with Pirelli Diablo Rosso III

    Mine didn't do that, mine went right to showing canvas. I can't tell how much rubber is left above the canvas in that photo. Is there much?

    New to me, 2014 FZ1

    The North American models didn't have the anti-theft enabled. That was only enabled on the European and Australasian models. So in all likelyhood, your bike never had the red key.

    Clunking sound while turning over manually

    the other forum is FZ1OA. It has a lot more traffic than this one. This forum had to change the web address which caused a lot of users to fade away. It was unfortunate as this forum was the best for before that happened.

    Clunking sound while turning over manually

    Upload the videos to youtube (or similar) and then copy the URL to the youtube video here. The other FZ1 forum has a lot more daily traffic than this one, you might find an answer on that forum quicker than here. Most users here are also over there.

    Clunking sound while turning over manually

    Does it do this with the clutch pulled in? Has the Stator been replaced previously? which side of the engine is this coming from? There are lots of things this could be.

    Stock Exhaust vs Hindle Full System

    Yes and no. You can flash the ECU to map a tune for your bike and remove the restrictions and throttle snatch. but you can't plug a quickshifter into it. But then you can buy other quickshifters that don't need a PCV anyway. The advantage of a PCV is that you can easily access and change...

    Tire question about year of manufacture vs installation date new...

    I buy my tires on order usually, and in September, the beginning of my riding season here in Australia. My local shop does stock a range of tires that they know will sell off the shelf, but the Pirelli Diablo Rosso III I run are rarely on the shelf, but it only takes a few days to get them in...

    Tire question about year of manufacture vs installation date new...

    google tire de-gassing. Tires that sit on the shelf not being used go hard and lose their sticky grip. When you switch from a hard set to a new set, you will notice the difference. However if you don't push the limits of the tire, only run in warm weather, or don't lean too far in corners...

    Stator Removal

    This is a known issue. There are several threads on this forum, the other FZ1 forum and also quite a few youtube videos that show how to replace the it. You will need to also drop the sump and pull all the magnets out of there too, and replace your oil filter. The replacement stators are...

    Aftermarket slip-on

    no issues at all, just take the Exup cables out and bolt the new one on. you can do a PCV at the same time if you want to, but it isn't needed to simply put an aftermarket can on.
