DaveAZ,
Thank you for your well written and very helpful summary. I am new to the forum and a proud owner of a new (to me) fully stock, 6700 mile, pristine 2006 FZ1. This bike even has the original stock tires (which are to be replaced this week). This is my first sport bike, only my second bike ever, and I was ISO information on how to bring this bike to its full potential. Your write up was perfect! I am using it as a base guide for customization and am currently assembling my parts. As I progress on the journey toward an enhanced FZ1 and transcendent riding experience, I will provide updates. Thank you!

Being it’s your first sports bike and an 06 with low miles. Just keep an eye on your frame welds below your tank.

It’s just a good practice to get into with an 06/07, never be too safe

Hi DaveAZ
Very nice thread really. You talk about nitrous or super charger but you don't talk about head gasket and cams timing. Putting an R1 head gasket an retiming the cams is not so difficult, is not so expensive, is not a slight improvement.
I have done these mods and it's pretty amazing.
Just my 2 cents.
