    Carb rebuild

    Hi guys , I just picked up a mint 05 FZ1 and need advise to what carb rebuild parts I should use. Bike has sat for 2 years and gas is nasty! It’s in a no run condition and needs battery and carb overhaul. Thanks in advance!

    Looking at a FZ1 this weekend

    Hey FZ1 owners, I have been eye balling FZ1s (and the VFR1200...) as my next bike for ~5 years, but haven't found one at the right price when I had cash in hand. I saw this one pop up on Craigslist, and am going to look at it this weekend...

    FZ1S In OZ

    G'day riders Didn't find the intro page at first, have now so I'll say hello to everyone and share a bit of background. My first ride was at 5 years old on a paddock bike. A 1950s British something (Excelsior?) step thru. Chasing the older cousins around the paddock and hoping to get a ride...

    New to forum, new to my FZ1 and a little disappointed.....

    Hi guys, I've been in the motorcycle industry since I was 4yrs old as my grandfather owned motorcycle dealerships in southern Michigan. I've always been on 2 wheels. I was riding a Suzuki Jr 50 before a bicycle. I've raced motocross for 20 years and now just a weekend warrior. I never bought a...

    Bridgestone BT-016 Pro

    I just picked up a pair of these for the VFR after finding out Bridgestone was offering a sweet $70/pair rebate on them in October. They are getting on towards 7 years old now but Bridgestone keeps producing them and my set is from mid-2016. I imagine these will only go on the bike come late...

    Greetings from a newbie in zaragoza, spain

    Hi. Got an FZ1 S last week. I'd been riding a Honda Hornet 900 919 for 3 years and loved it. It was the best bike I'd ever had. However, a guy in my barrio was selling the FZ1 at a knock down price - so much so I was worried about it! He wanted 4,000 euros for an immaculate 2009 with only...

    Might throw in the towel... for now

    I thought that moving to Texas would afford me more riding time. I thought the weather change from NH would entice me to be out on the bike more. I thought, since I'd bought a brand-new home, I'd have nothing but time on my hands with no projects to do. I was wrong in so many ways... on too...

    Newb here.

    Been riding 35 years. Had a bunch of cool and some not so cool bikes since the 70s, most recently had an 08 R6 that I loved but hated riding due to aggressive riding position (I am getting old and old men look silly on a sport bike anyway). Traded it for a new FZ6R and enjoyed it for a few years...

    Wifey Wipe Out!

    Well, with the wife getting some more dirt miles under her belt it was inevitable that she would screw up at some point. I have to say it was a spectacular crash! In all my years of riding (over 36 years) I've never been able to perfectly land my bike upside down after wiping out. It was...

    A long time friend in Florida called me earlier today to tell me that his wife of almost three years (their anniversary is 2 days from now) passed away today in a motorcycle accident. Her best friend was with her. At first it seemed that he told me that they were riding together on separate...
