May as well introduce myself.
 
I am 26 from Nova Scotia, Canada. I bought a 2000 R6 earlier in the year to see if I liked a sport bike. Decided I liked my license and a sport bike should be for track only, and then she blew up on me. Cracked [HASH]2 Cylinder wall. C'est La Via, I said to hell with it and bought myself a 2015 Red FZ-07.
 
I have put 400km's on it in the past 2 days, and plan to have it fully broken in by Wednesday. After that I am putting the R6 front brakes on it and possibly the rear shock if it will fit. After that I want bar end mirrors, Akropovic Titanium exhaust, and a small wind deflector.

R6 forks are 43mm in Diameter, and the FZ-07 are 41mm. I have yet to rip them off, so I don't know what the diameter at the mounting portion is. I need to stop riding for a few minutes to see if the forks will fit, but I love this thing too much.

Considering I want to paint the bike I will abstain from voting. Thinking either a matte lime green, or a purple known in the BMW world as Techno Violet. It is an M3 colour that I absolutely love.
 
I checked, and neither the forks or the rear shock from the R6 will fit the FZ-07 without extensive modification.

Welcome! Enjoy your new ride and post some pics of your bike when you get a chance. If you decide to paint the bike, let us know the color you picked.

Hi ravenlord! I hope you go with the techno violet. I think that would look really nice.
