  1. Past hour
  2. My FZ 07 came with a full carbon fiber Yoshimura exhaust and I do like the sound, but at times (morning, late at night, in parking garages...) it is VERY loud. I looked at their website and Yoshimura sells a "replacement baffle". Does this exhaust come with a baffle? Should I get a replacement one? How different will it sound? Yoshi charges about $30 for the replacement, but charges close to $10 for shipping. So any impute is appreciated.

    Hey All

    Welcome to the forum.
  4. Honestly, I did more research on my gear than I did on my MT before I bought it. I literally spent weeks reading about helmets and armor; ECE, DOT, Snell, SHARP, CE, slide time, etc. You name it, I looked at what it was and what it meant and whether or not I needed it. I even got as granular as only considering gloves that had scaphoid sliders on them and boots that had protection against both hyperflexion and hyperextension (as most do) but also protection against lateral/medial flexion and extension. I bought all of my gear one or two pieces at a time well before I even sat down on a motorcycle. I've been through way too much in my life to waste it with sub-par gear. My family and loved ones mean way too much to me to even question "should I really spend the money on a Shoei RF1200 or go with something cheaper?" BTW, I also work in an emergency department. So I see first-hand what happens when people try to make the "it's too hot out for my jacket" excuse. Put on a base layer, wear a perforated leather jacket or something as abrasion resistant and appreciate the life you have. We all have people out there depending on us whether we realize it or not.
  5. Today
  6. I put the battery booster from my truck into the storage box in the bike (cables are in my bag that's always with me). Had a rough start the other night. Took three attempts. Everything seems fine now, though.
  7. Bought the OES Slider bundle from amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CVKBMCY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Hey All

    Does anyone happen to know the thread size for the stock bar ends? The OEM bar ends are removed and I would like to install bar end mirrors.

    Ladys on Two Wheels WWII

    That's a great read, thanks for sharing. These ladies were certifiable badasses: "Heroism was not uncommon. On April 22, 1941, while carrying an urgent message to a command post at the Devonport, Plymouth, shipyards, an important port for the Allies due to its proximity to France’s Normandy coast, Wren Pamela McGeorge was caught in a bombing raid and blown off her bike. McGeorge’s motorcycle lay in gnarled pieces, but even as Luftwaffe munitions continued to explode around her, she ran the remaining half-mile to deliver her dispatch. Immediately after, she volunteered to go out again. For her bravery, McGeorge received the British Empire Medal."

    I have a 3 or 4 of these already modified sitting on the shelf. I owe one to a certain somebody in Hawaii, first though.

    I use the AB products (seals and upper bushing) all the time on FZ07 builds so I'm not sure what fitment problems you're referring to. Granted I don't buy the kits, rather the individual parts. You can use OEM of course if you like. The only part I would not use from OEM/AB is the default lower bushing. Use AB/38-1017 instead. Any conversation about oil needs to consult this chart (https://sites.google.com/site/forksbymatt/resources/oil-list) or your own. There are viscosity mix calculators (eg. https://widman.biz/English/Calculators/Mixtures.html) on Google that will give you how much of what to mix to get XcSt@40 values. For damper rods I think 38'ish cSt@40 is a good target.
  17. Got it and I do understand about the baseball bat, I'd bought one a couple years back just for kicks at batting cages but ended up returning it because it hit me, what have I done?!! I then returned it to Dick's and continued using 'their' crappy, rental bats.
  18. I can't imagine anyone saying that either, who could? I don't want to see people get hurt either but most people know they're taking their chances so why bother telling them what they already know. I think the bigger question, other than what safety gear, is if bikes are dangerous (and they are) why are we talking about safety gear? We should be telling each other not to ride, lol!
  19. Anytime. I'm trying to be sensible about this build, as my bike is already pretty well sorted for spirited riding and light track work. Having said that, I find myself wanting to change it up for actual competition. The plan is to get it mechanically sorted for racing, and race it naked (with a bellypan) for my club season. Then possibly go full tilt for MotoAmerica. Do it! Haha. I have a goal of racing a pro race, and time is NOT on my side. Remember, I couldn't even walk 9 years ago, so to be doing this at any level is a bonus. Will do, but I'm gonna do the RACE version. The inherent difference between the EVO and RACE is RACE has timing. But yes, I'll update you. - Paul
  20. 2016 Yamaha FZ-07 in silver and blue located in Johns Creek, Georgia (about 30 minutes north of Atlanta) 2,497 miles Clear title in hand Light modifications include the following: Aftermarket chain adjusters with rear stand spools Euro-style flush mount front turn signals Evotech Performance passenger peg removal kit (passenger pegs and all hardware will come with the bike) Integrated rear turn signals Rear fender eliminator kit Rearview mirror extenders R6 throttle tube R&G racing aluminum radiator guard TST Industries rear swingarm sliders Vagabond Motorsports frame sliders Engine, intake, exhaust and suspension remain stock. Rear stand (not pictured) will come with the bike. Considering a move to a more touring-oriented/ADV bike, plus kids' participation in travel sports this summer leaves no time to ride, so it's time to find her a new home. See additional photos here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1E7CGuctV2eBHZw1-ibeo6urv5FxSwJgj?usp=sharing $5,650 Not interested in trades; cash or cashier's check only. PM me if interested.
  21. It deserves to be ridden, and with two kids that participate in travel sports, there is just no time right now (nor for the foreseeable future). Plus, the extra cash could help in that aspect as well (checked the price tag on a really good baseball bat recently; yikes! ). Hoping to find someone who appreciates it as much as I have.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that. I should've mentioned that. If you go to the All Balls website it says it fits the FZ-07 but do not trust that. Do yourself a favor and just get OEM.

    Hi from Norway

    Welcome. My sister lives in Bergen. I'd love to try the roads there but it's a too long and boring ride to get there from where I live.
