  1. This mornings commute was wet and foggy with sprinkles. I'm always extra careful in the rain, no extreme braking, accellerating, or manuevering, and I increase my following distance (apparently not enough). The SUV in front of me did a fast stop out of the blue from a rolling 50-60 mph. He said he had no choice as there was a chain reaction stoppage ahead of him. Even though I wasn't tailgating I have no anti-lock except my judgement and I hit both brakes as hard as I thought effective without skidding too much. Because it was still dark and wet I did not try to manuever around the car in traffic. I could have slid out or been hit by the next guy over or back. In a dry situation I think I would have braked much harder, nosey hard or swerved hard, but my reaction this morning was to controlled brake and hope it was enough. It wasn't. My rear tire was probably in the air at the end, if I wasn't skidding. It was a solid hit doing damage to the SUV's bumper (scuf n small tear) and impacting somehow my front fender, which means I was either doing a hell of a nosey, or my wheel went UNDER his bumper at some point (which was relatively high on a 4x4 SUV), because the fender is set back a bit from the front of the tire. But all in all I don't think I hit hard enough to do any real damage to the forks or welds. I thought my wheel bearings might be compromised tho it felt a little grindy like the races got a flat spot. It could be my imagination. I noticed there are guards (look at the pics) in front of the fork stems and these were not touched, so using that as a reference point maybe Im ok. I think Im looking at 3 fender pieces (black center and 2 white sides). BUT, Although I Have rode 30K miles in the last few years, Im still a noob in some ways when it comes to dealing with damage and safety. Is there anything else I should be concerned about. Is it safe?The fork tree welds look ok, I can't measure for bend geometry that is out of my expertise but it looks right. His bumper was fiberglass and rubber and I think that spread out the impact as did my wheel and fender. Should I have it safety checked or something. Check the wheel? Please feel free to comment. p.s. Resized my pics so I could add more than one!
  2. I have a 2016 Fz-07 with the silver and blue coloration with blue wheels. I am looking to vinyl wrap my bike but cant think of a good color to go with the blue wheels and frame. I am trying to stay away from white, black or blue. I want it to be unique. If yall have any ideas yall let me know, thanks.
  3. Hi Guys! I recently got a used 2016 FZ-07 as my starter motorcycle. My motorcycle came with an M4 slip-on exhaust pre-installed by the previous owner and it is indeed 'LOUD'. (To a point where I feel guilty starting my bike early AM / late PM). I suspect it has had its baffle/db-killer removed. But its hard for me to tell right now as I have no reference point of how it looks with a baffle inserted in. I was wondering if anyone here can help me out. (I am attaching a picture of my pipe). Also, I have read about getting a Stage 2 Quiet-Insert from M4. To install this quiet-insert, do I need to have the original baffle installed (Just in case I am missing a baffle)? Thanks a lot folks! Much appreciated!

    New color

    Been waiting on the bike to be finished an it finally is. The color came out better than I could wish for. I want to thank @Bigturbomax for helping me with this project and all the projects to come since I do have some items on the way.
  5. Hello I just wanted to share my successful attempt to install a hydraulic clutch in my bike! Here’s pictures. I still have a giant box of new parts to get my bike back together. But if all goes well next week the only thing that will even have a scratch on it from my crash will be my exhaust (which I am replacing too!)

  11. Just thought I'd throw a few pictures out there of my bike (yellow) and my boyfriends bike (blurple). Wherever we go we love to take photos of these beauties. And everyone we run into thinks it's so awesome that we ride the same bike Frequently we ride up to LaCrosse, Wisconsin to ride with my father (the Harley in one of the photos). One of our favorite roads up by LaCrosse is going through the Mindoro Cut! And one of our favorite roads in the Madison area is going over the ferry! We have many more rides planned, just not enough time to do them!

    2015 Fz-07 Wheel Replacement

    Well, sadly I need to replace the front wheel on my 2015 Fz-07 (graphite edition, with the blue/purple frame and wheels). My confusion stems from choosing which wheel to purchase as two are listed in the OEM guide for my particular model. They are: Cast Wheel, Front DPBM15 FOR DNMN and Cast Wheel, Front LGB FOR BWC1,VRC1 ( http://oemparts.chaparral-racing.com/oemparts/a/yam/53a99b1cf8700220a44158d2/front-wheel ). I have contacted Chaparral, but would appreciate if I could get faster feedback here! Cheers
