  1. I rode for the first time this weekend, it definitely seemed like it helped with wind around 45-55 way more than not having it, but with how windy it was here this weekend it was hard to get a good read on it. Did you notice any big changes?We rode about 80 miles and I think it make a difference from 50 on up with the wind on my chest. I didn't need to get down as far to get the wind over my helmet.
  2. Yes sir! Almost exactly like yours. Probably a manufacturing flaw. For $29 and free shipping form china I cant really complain. Haha I bought the same one and I rode for the first time since installing it in the daylight, Same spot on mine too.

    Love the black fz's. Welcome to the forums!
  4. No prob, glad to help.
  5. Yes it covers all the ugly bits! Sorry for the horrible pic, I just walked out to garage and snapped a quick one. Here is a less awful picture, so you can see how it cleans up the bike.
  6. Thanks for the suggestion @Ride351 . I've looked at that one before but I've not seen any pictures of it installed. Does it cover the sides/top/bottom as well, to help hide the bare aluminum? The bare aluminum just clashes with the Red & black scheme IMO. Yes it covers all the ugly bits! Sorry for the horrible pic, I just walked out to garage and snapped a quick one.
  7. Welcome! I bought this grill and love it. https://www.motovationusa.com/radiator-guard-by-evotech-performance-bun002197.html?mmyId=74588&mmy=Yamaha-FZ-07-2016 It fully covers the radiator and it very well built.

    I ended up with the 7000 because they were out of stock on the 3800s. This thing is awesome and BRIGHT! I got the rubber basket around the light with some fighting, but I got it.

    Can you tell me about the "cutting the boot" I have been reading about it and your thoughts on it?

    Sounds like you bought some ebay 25 dollar specials. I had the same problem too, my first cheapo HIDs lasted 200 miles before crapping out. At the time LED tech was still behind (2014) and wasn't too good so I manned up and purchased proper 100 dollar (with discount coupon) HIDs. Going on 3 years now with no problems. So if you decide not to go the LED route, you need to actually spend hundred or more dollars for a proper HID set. Although if my HIDs finally do crap out, I will probably go with Cyclops LEDs. You are correct, I will be going the LED route very soon.

    I forgot that I added frame sliders, front and rear fork sliders and radiator guard too. Man these parts add up quick!
