Re: Mods to a FZR600. Any ideas?

Two mods that I did to my 92 that made the biggest difference were an Ohlins rear shock and tank grips...had Tech Spechs on my FZR but run (and prefer for my style of riding) Stomp Grips now on my R6.

Not sure how different your year is from my old 92... Or if there is any difference.
This looks good! When I get home, I'll post a picture to show you guys how big my spacers are, .

Big flatside kit (Keihin FCR) was not available for this bike IIRC, only the FZR750/1000 and early R6 and R1 models...

I don't think my bike has that rubber piece. It has a bolt holding the signals on, but that's it.

I scored big when I got mine. A coworker of Mark's emailed him a week after I got my bike to ask him if he knew anyone that wanted the shock off an FZR600. $100

I believe the spacing won't allow it, though the R6 is pretty close IIRC... the FCR's probably wouldn't do the FZR much good UNLESS you flowed the head... then you have two mods that cost more than a FZR600 is worth...

You scored beyond big... they were scarce back in the day... and virtually non-existent today...
