I'm picking up a Gen II a few states away and riding it home. I'll be on the bike for close to a week, so I need to set it up with some luggage. Ideally, I'd like to get a rear rack that I can strap a dry bag to, and then set up some soft saddlebags. My questions are these:
looking for damaged Gen 2 parts that are still in useable condition. If it will bolt up I will use it. Fairings, engine covers, forks, wheels, handlebars(can be bent), muffler, rear subframe, seat, etc....Scratches are ok.....perfection not necessary!
Let me know what you have!
Thinking about getting a FZ1 for a around town and short ride bike. I have a Harley for traveling. is the carb. bikes pretty dependable as far as having trouble with the carbs, or would I be better off getting a fuel injected bike. Thanks for the advice in advance...............
So, I screwed up my OEM screen and want something shorter than my touring screen for summer. Looking for an OEM or like size clear, smoke or light smoke windscreen for a second gen.
Price: <$50 depending on condition
Location: Just outside Austin, Tx
So I bought a used Ohlins shock from FleaBay for a reasonable price.
It was listed as an YA628 for on '06 FZ1. Apparently came from a race bike. I doubled checked with seller about compatibility & condition etc.
So I spent a lot of time yesterday trying to fit it. The piggyback...
I am looking to get this for my Gen 1:
How do I measure the Grip Size to know if it is 7/8 or 1 inch? Is it based on the size of my current grips or the size of the Handlebar underneath?
This is all speculation.
But now that it has been a few years of owning my current 03 FZ1, I am starting to think I want something different to commute on. I do like my bike and it runs great, but I am debating if I should start buying upgrades for it, or consider a new bike altogether. I love...
