What did you do to your FZ today?

Dean ride ON !!! I’m inspired ...75 is the new 50 ,
This has become more meaningful to me as I am approaching 63.
Just in case , not for Dean he is clearly in the know and very cool, the quick shifter allows for smooth full throttle no clutch shifting, only up shifts , down shifts I still use the clutch...for around $300 bucks .
Check it out !
Cheers

Fork swap done. I love it that so many parts are interchangeable between the Gen 2 FZ1 and R1







Stuff I still need:

- front and rear indicators
- LED headlights
- right side rearset. The one on this bike is broken. Or perhaps a good welder . . .
- grips
- brake fluid and bleed up front
- right side frame slider
- tag and insurance

Stuff I have for sale:

- Gen 2 FZ1 forks - gold. Good condition, 5K miles on them. Full disclosure, this bike was crashed once (hence the rebuild) but the forks work fine, have no signs of damage or warping, and cycle smoothly through their full range of motion.
- Gen 2 front brakes - calipers and rotors
- R1 top & bottom triple clamps and steering stem, 07-08
- Another R1 top triple clamp, 07-08
- 2 sets of 07-08 R1 clip-ons, 1 of them with controls
- Maybe a PC3 (see ECU flash below). It's on the bike now, may not keep it.

I'll list this stuff in the classifieds too.

I'm looking forward to upgrading this bike some more. Future plans include:

Traxxion cartridges
Penske rear shock
ECU flash
Speedscreen
engine guards
rotor R&R
Nice but didn't the Gen 2 FZ come with USD forks?
I guess the R1's are that much better huh?

Holy moly that exhaust looks like it sounds pretty nasty in a good way....

I'm too old to put something on my bike like that but 20 years ago maybe.
