I purchased an Fzr600 about a month ago and have been working on it and it is finally in the shop getting fork seals and inspection. I am wondering what everyones thoughts are on them. I like taking it out on twisty roads. I am wondering if anyone has had one of these before and everyones thoughts on them.
I used to race FZR400's and loved them.....even more than my CBR600F2 race bike. The FZR600 was a better bike for the street than the 400. The one time I put lights on one of mine, I felt like I was announcing myself a mile ahead because you had to have the RPM's above 9000 to be moving at any rate. The 600 has more torque so you don't have to wind it up like that, and they still handled OK.
Yes, as a matter of fact, stock pipes DO kill people. Ever try to beat someone with a light weight aftermarket system?
They just don't have enough heft to do any damage!
I had a 91 fzr 600 (Genesis). Didnt like the back tire it was very narrow. I was gonna put a YZF-600R swing arm on with the wider tire but i sold it before it ever happened. No pix of it i can find sorry. It was pretty beat up when i first got it (was my first bike)
Yea it is a fun bike sure I would like a new R6 with fuel injection and all the nice perks I dont have but atleast Im out on two wheels once i get out of college however I will have me a nice R6 but for now I would like to hear as much as I can about them from anyone who has had them
