    The Tarmac Faction Yamaha FZ-07 Racing Prototype is for sale! .

    I complete agree with this diagnosis. When i first got my MT07, the shifter placement was rather low. I have some big shoes and it was difficult to fully release the shifter between shifts. If the shifter wasnt fully released between shifts, it would act exactly as you described. I have since adjust the shifter placement to a much high position and basically eliminated the issue. Exaggerated toe pointing does help to build that muscle memory of making sure the shifter is released.

    I dunno. Rossi is retiring. There’s an open seat. Paul is secretive and selling his sweet FZ. You guys figure it out. I’ve drawn my own conclusions Paul, good luck with whatever you have going on. Ed

    OK, Paul. Tell us the truth. You just like spending the $$$ on new kit/toys don't you? I've lost track of how many race bikes you've built in the 4 yrs I've been here. LOL Good luck with a quick sale. You always build quality race rigs .

    DID was stock chain. Easy way to measure a chain is to understand the system. It's all based on 1/8 inch increments. A 500 series chain ( 520, 525, 530) will measure 5 eights of an inch (5/8") from pin to pin, measuring on center. The last two digits of the number ( 20, 25, 30) tells the width between the plates, or the width of the sprocket tooth. 20= two eighths, 2/8" or a 1/4" 25= is two and a half eighths, or 5/16" 30= is three eighths or 3/8" The pull test Lone Wolf mentioned earlier is the best and most foolproof method for measuring the length of your chain. If using a ruler, 5/8" is .625" in decimal form. So 10 links would be 6.25".

    Went for a quick ride today and all is good so far. Bike tracked perfectly with hands off the bars at 70 mph. The bike feels just as nimble with 7 inches added to the swingarm. I deleted the rear ABS. It was just easier since I needed a longer line. The stock shock is on until the custom valved Penske comes in. Probably another week.

    I think he's just clarifying that he priced the items according to 1/2 their price new + $5 for shipping to come to his "shipped" price, not that he's adding $5 to the listed shipped price.

    After years of wondering if what they say about the Striple is true, I found one at a reasonable price: 2017 675R with 3200 miles on it and nearly new Michelin Road 5 2CT tires. My only complaint is the fork high speed compression damping is just as bad as the FZ's. And it spins about a thousand rpm higher than the FZ at 60. But that means it's pretty peppy boy! And Oh that exhaust note-a siren song if ever there was one. I can say it is a class above the FZ overall but then again the original price was about three grand more than the FZ. And it is chunkier than the FZ but...

    I bought a 2021 Street Triple R this year to add to the collection, did 170 miles today through the Smokey mts. Below our my current bikes.

    I traded the Striple for a 2021 CB300R with ABS. It was worth what Kelly Blue Book said-$5800. So I'm zipping around now using my left toe way more often than on the Fz or Striple. Honda did a great job matching the throttle with the engine because rev matching is so nice on this bike. It's like swapping the stock FZ throttle tube for an R6 tube but feels much better. I haven't seen this much RPM in high gear since 1975! The FZ is in the shop and I will greatly enjoy alternating the two when it gets returned to me.

    Lone Wolf is shooting you straight. Your sprockets are fine, don't replace them. There's a myth pervading the internet that chains and sprockets MUST be changed together. It's people not understanding the mechanics of how a chain drive system works that keep pushing this myth. The short version, if you run a chain too long or too tight you will deform the sprockets, then a new chain on those deformed sprockets gets ruined. The caveat is, you first have to run the chain too tight or too long. Your sprockets show zero sign of either. I put 25k miles on my stock sprockets and wore out a chain. Replaced the chain, sprockets still look new. These factory sprockets are very good quality. It's not the first I've seen sprockets outlast chains. It happens a lot. One close friend has a '96 VFR that's well over 60,000 miles now. That bike has gone through three chains, but the original sprockets are still perfectly fine. Steel sprockets last incredibly long. Also, in the interest of saving money, making life easier on yourself and removing a variable...don't let the internet make your afraid of clip style master links. How the myth persists that they are dangerous on street bikes boggles my mind. Again, there are NO mechanical forces trying to pull that side plate off a chain. Anyone that says high horsepower can unclip a chain isn't paying attention. You HAVE to install the clip in the right direction, but that's easy. The reason bikes come stock with endless (riveted) chains is cost. Clips are an extra part that an employee has to assemble. Endless chains can be thrown on in a flash. They're not inherently stronger. IMO, as the internet stranger with nothing to gain, grab you a $60 Firepower chain with a clip and rock on. If can manage to spend a little more, D.I.D. , Regina, RK/EK are known to be quality, but can really drive the cost up. Also, buying a "pre-cut" 108 link chain can cost more than a universal chain that comes in 120 link length ( usually 120, sometimes it varies). You don't need an expensive chain tool to cut a chain. An and grinder ( hand file works just as well) a hammer and a punch are all you need. I'm a stranger on the internet with nothing to gain. I get annoyed seeing people talked in to throwing money at things. If your bike is your baby and you enjoy showering it with gifts, that's perfectly fine. Just don't justify it as a safety concern and urge others to do the same. After decades of wearing out chains on motorcycles, and being a lifelong mechanic, I'll take a clip style master link any day. Or scrub your chain good with Grunge brush and kerosene and see if it loosens up for you. Once they go stuff you often can reverse it. Dried/hardened orings are gonna happen over time, regardless of miles or maintenance. Good luck, and be safe out there

    At 10k miles, and your photos, it is not "unsafe". I can see the wear "starting" but it's not to the point it would damage a new chain. The front definitely has more of a wear mark and slight indent from chain roller (where it looks polished and shiny), and that is typical to show more wear on the front. You said money is tight - so that is a factor. If the chain is serviceable, I would probably get some more miles out of the existing set and replace all of it when you can afford it. Then again that back sprocket looks great. if you want to try and save it you could change the front sprocket and chain. Part of my focus, again is if the chain is stretched. As a chain wears (internally, rollers are bearings) it gets longer. The lengthened chain doesn't sit as well on the sprockets, and causes more wear on the sprockets. The Dave Moss thing of pushing the chain sideways will tell you if the chain is totally shot, but you really need to check the other ways too like if you can pull it away from the rear sprocket (shouldn't pull away much at all) and you can measure length as it says in that Canyon Chasers video and this article. How to Install a New Motorcycle Chain - CanyonChasers How do you know when your chain needs to be replaced? Go to your rear sprocket and pull straight back on the chain. If your chain pulls away from the sprockets by much, it is probably stretched out. If...

    The rear looks good IMO. I'll have to take the cover off in the front to check the smaller one. I'll snap pics of both. Thank you

    What a joke, the R7 wasn't designed as a true sport bike; they repurposed the MT-07 and added the R6 frontend parts with new plastics. The only thing new they engineered was the side covers that are supposed to stiffen up the frame. Other than that, all they did was take what the typical MT-07 racer was already doing. So, don't kid yourself.

    See if it is stretched. Lot's of good info on youtube about that. If it is not stretched, lube the heck out of it. OEM chains are generally regarded as much shorter lived than aftermarket, even by the same mfgr. OEM chains are part of the cost cutting on new bikes, across the boards. So your original chain with 10k may be near end of life, especially if it wasn't maintained by Prior Owner. No you don't have to cut links for the new chain - reputable suppliers will allow you to specify the length you need. You get what you pay for with chains, cheap ones are cheap for a reason. Get the best you can afford. These people are reputable https://sprocketcenter.com/ They have a page devoted to the MT-07 FZ-07 https://sprocketcenter.com/street-sprocket-applications/yamaha/fz-07-2015-2019.html This video helped me quite a bit with my chain replacements

    Painted the swingarm with bright red Klass Kote epoxy paint. Came out good for being an amateur painter. The stock caliper bracket is modified for a lower torque rod.

    I finished the bellcrank bracket. I have a Penske double adjustable on order. It will be valved for street/strip use. Penske and M2 shocks are the two big names in drag racing. M2 is mostly drag racing and while assembled in the U.S., uses Nitron parts. So they are "Nitron" drag shocks, pretty cool. I went with Penske simply because they are familiar with XSR700 packaging. M2 mostly does the popular drag bikes.

    I picked the MT because I wanted a great “all-around” bike since my wife won’t sign off on me owning more than one right now, and I’ve got a few more years before I’m ready to move to a “dad” bike like an ADV or something. I love the character of the CP2 and the MT’s malleability/ customizability. But if I were allowed to have 3 bikes, it would probably be a KTM 1290 GT for touring, a Victory Octane for cruising and a Street Triple for more spirited rides/canyon carving. IMHO the Street Triple is king of the mid weight nakeds.

    Never been, but found out about it last year when a NYST buddy attended an event held there by EvolveGT. It's only 1.1 miles and top speeds seem to be no more than 75 mph from videos I have seen. But it seems like fun and priced a bit cheaper than some tracks. NYST is $190. Pittrace is $230. And this track is $150. A video I found of Pineview...
