    2017 Yamaha FZ-07 ABS model for sale $6900

    I would tell your son to approach a local dealer and see if it could be consigned and for how much. It seems a lot of dealers around the country are doing fairly well. The dealer I buy my parts from said things were good, but now the problem is hitting some pinch in inventory since the bike manufacturers had closed down during the pandemic. Can't hurt to see.

    Rain Cover

    That would make sense if you have to park the bike outside or exposed to rough conditions for sure. I read the reviews at the time and knew, going in that it wasn't meant for longer term exposure to the sun and elements. You need something heavy duty to deal with the sun and all. It is perfect to put over a bike at a flat track race to keep a lot of the dust off the bike, or outside at a motel on a few nights trip, just to keep rain or dust off the bike. The reason I did the half cover instead of a full cover. Plus it won't rest on the pipe when on the bike. To do something for the more open storage, a full heavy duty cover makes absolute sense and you will pay for quality - and it's worth it.

    Although those are nice because they're light weight and pack small for traveling the reviews on them are that they don't last long because they're light weight material and therefore, tend to rip. Maybe one of those for trips and a heavy duty one for home.

    Agree with cornerslider 100%. I have a bike in getting ready to sell with lots of desirable aftermarket parts on it. I'm gonna list it with a high price for about a week to see if I get lucky, but I'll be peeling all three good stuff off to sell separately. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to add value to the bike like we hope it does.

    F3 cartridge conversion

    Yeah, twf is correct. No stretching of yokes allowed. There's only enough flexibility in them to allow for clamping. Any extra movement, opening or closing, and they will snap.

    I can't speak for all markets, but in the midwest that bike is worth around $5K. I'm not a "troll", I'm a friend.... My best advise is pull the aftermarket stuff, list it on eBay, or even this forum. I've always made out much better on bikes by removing aftermarket "goodies" and sell them separate. List that bike "stock" for just under $5K, and I think it would sell. Unfortunately, all your aftermarket stuff (nice as it is), doesn't mean much to most buyers. I'm not trying to be an a$$, I'm trying to be a friend. I've been buying/selling bikes for over 30 years. Good luck with the new chapter in your life! Sounds REALLY fun!

    Rain Cover

    I did the Nelson Rigg half cover because it is light and compact so I can take it on a trip with almost no storage space taken since it can pack into the small bag. Not the heaviest and not something to sit in the sun day after day, but a great trip cover or just in the garage to keep crap off the bike. click here to view at Amazon, I forget where I actually got it. Great trip cover and in the garage.

    Another bolt on "build"....

    Well, I didn't get pictures. The day started out great. The stock exhaust came off really easily, which should have sent red flags up. Lol I test fitted the Two Brothers Typhoon exhaust, and the headers wouldn't go into the exhaust ports. I fiddled around for a few minutes to see if it was just the angle, but no dice. When I set them next to the stock header, the Two Brothers was about 1/4" off. I tried a ratcheting strap to take the 1/4" in to where it's supposed to be, and my straps kept getting in the way. After looking at 3 different stores to find a smaller ratcheting strap (which I'm sure I already have the smallest ones). I brought out the old trusty 550 cord. I used a straw that I cut to size so the 550 cord wouldn't cut itself, and bam! In it went. The air filter was the biggest PITA, but the Dobek fuel controller was a close second, but only because of the lack of space to get the connectors back on the injectors. It was a simple plug and play otherwise. I also added a charger for my phone, and ran the lead for the battery tender since I was already there. I also added my axle sliders, and will add the frame sliders once I figure out the best way to support the bike/motor while doing it (unless I'm completely off on how they go on.) This exhaust is freaking LOUD! I was kind of concerned it was going to be too loud when I first started it up, but I was also in my garage. Thankfully it's not obnoxiously loud. The Dobek unit definitely helps, and the engine braking is significantly less on the base setting. I put about 25 miles on it afterwards, and am pleasantly pleased. Pictures to come tomorrow. I'm tired.

    Fork Questions(Dave Moss, Sonic Springs)

    I would consider buying some cheap eBay preload adjusters (fork caps). I think I got mine for about $20? I adjusted mine to be in about the middle of the range, with about 10mm if preload. This gives you the option to have ZERO preload, as well as up to 20mm preload, or anywhere in between. You can safely raise your fork tubes 10mm in the clamps. When you do that, you will lose a small amount of high-speed stability.... I've never noticed it a bit. I can tip it into a corner wide open in 6th gear (on a track), and never upset the chassis a bit. You could probably go more? My suspension tuner recommends 10mm, so that's what I went with-
  13. Yeah i got about 16mm spacer and man did it suck to put em back on. I might actually lower them a bit someday as i feel their a little too stiff but it sure did clear up dive under breaking. Did lowering affect anything else? Is it bad to lower them that way?

    As an aside, the first thing I did upon moving here was to buy a 2019 Kawasaki Z400 ABS. I later bought a house on the island of Bohol and am currently finishing up a garage renewal for my shop. No more damn winters hehe. Oh yeah, today July 4th is my birthday....76 years young and still ride like the wind.

    Fork Questions(Dave Moss, Sonic Springs)

    I have much more faith in sonic..... I'm not a fan of Dave Moss. I put .90nm springs in mine with racetech emulators. I have about 10mm of preload (like sonic). I'm completely happy with my front end. I use my bike mostly for track days, and push it hard. I'm a shorter rider as well. I raised the fork tubes in the triple clamps by 10mm. This lowers the bike slightly, as well as helps it tip into a corner better. Hope that helps-

    2017 Yamaha FZ-07 ABS model for sale $6900

    I gave my house there in Missouri to my son and have moved to the Philippines. Before I left I signed the title so that he could sell it for me. I have no idea what to ask for it during this lock down virus f****** up time that we are living in now so if anyone wants to make me a reasonable offer it can be yours cheap.
  17. Yesterday
  18. So i recently swapped out my fork springs for a pair of Sonic ones for my weight (.90) and 15w oil. However i noticed 2 differences between what dave moss recommends and what sonic recomends. Sonic recommends cutting their included pvc pipe so that it makes the fork cap stick up about 16mm or 0.5in. However moss recommends cutting the stock metal spacer down. He then proceeds to lift the forks up about 8mm. Whats the right call? Ive already followed sonic instructions and the front has really stiffened up and feels a lot better overall. I was mainly wondering about the effects of lifting up the forks. As a shorter rider it would probably help me get both feet on the ground.

    Yamaha R3- 2WDW flash review

    I picked up a new 2019 Yamaha R3 late last fall. This is my street bike. My FZ-07 is now a dedicated track bike. I'm keeping the R3 motor, and intake all stock. I added an Akrapovic GP slip-on. Adding a slip on, while leaving the stock CAT on does nothing for performance. Essentially, my R3 is stock for all practical purposes. I'm pretty active on the R3 forum as well. I kept seeing posts about the excessive engine braking on the R3. I didn't think it was all that bad? I mean, it's a little 321cc parallel twin... How much engine baking could it really produce??? I thought: "Maybe I don't know, what I don't know"??? I was right- I didn't.... I went to the 2WDW website, and they where having a COVID-19 discount on ECU flashing for $249. That was the cheapest I've ever seen it. They did a great job on my FZ-07 flash, so I thought I'd pull the trigger. I gave them all the details of my bike, and was clear that I obviously wasn't chasing HP, but wanted it to do everything "better". They turned it around in a week door-to-door, which is amazing to me. I reinstalled the ECU, and everything worked as it should. I just took it for a ride this morning for the first time since the flash. I knew within the first block, that I had a different bike! It did everything better, just as I had hoped!!!! The lack of engine braking was a drastic change. I had no idea how much engine braking a little 321cc motor could produce!!! It was instantly an easier bike to ride. Granted, it wasn't a difficult bike to ride to begin with, but the flash helped dramatically. I roll off the throttle now, and it just glides effortlessly into gradually slowing down. Very seamless, effortless, and just plain FUN!!! I know people are always gonna ask "is it faster now?"- Honestly, I don't think so. That wasn't my end goal at all. When I got on the throttle hard this morning, it felt the same as it did before the flash- no better, no worse.... What I gained was a bike that runs smoother, and easier to ride. I'm happy with my choice, and it was definitely worth the money. I posted this on this site because the R3 has the EXACT same motor as the MT-03. I know a lot of people are looking at the MT-03. It's a very fun, smooth, high-reving little package. You can really wined it up on the street, and be pretty darn close to being "legal" -

    I didn't personally buy the TST Hyper pack but the previous owner did. Let me just say I'm grateful he did because it makes everything look so much nicer. Honestly if I didn't get the bike with it all installed I would've bought it myself.

    Brights Issue with LED Bulb

    Just to let you know, all the cyclops bulbs are a great improvement over stock. My first was the 3800 lumen and my current bulb is the 10k lumen bulb. The one in between (7500 lumen ???) is very bright as well, it's almost indistinguishable from the 10K bulb. GL!

    Brights Issue with LED Bulb

    Yeah the old bulb works perfect, so I suppose it's an issue with the bulb I used. I'll buy the Cyclops LED and see how that goes. Will report back.
  26. This bike is a ton of fun. Suspension is good, just gotta respring and revalve it for my weight.
