I'm in the same boat, I've got an R1 shock and adapter in the garage but am finding more than anything it just takes a change in riding style.

The first time I saw a picture of myself on the FZ1 I realized how upright I was compared to the FZR so I've worked on bending my elbows more and lowering myself in the fun stuff. The FZR also seemed to respond better to steering inputs but that's just physics, wider bars equate to a wider arc of travel for the same change at the stem compared to the clip ons. Plus most importantly, the 110 front wheel on the FZR was just so easy to throw into a turn.
