Bloo's Build! '18 MT-07

Recommended Posts

Mlou1224

Hey gang, Mark here!

 

As some of you know, I purchased a brand new 0 mile 2018 MT-07 in early January. It was the last 2018 model on the floor and I walked away with, what I believe was, a great deal. 

 

Below are some photos showing the progress of things I've done so far. I still have a LONGGG way to go before I'm "completed" and I'm sure once I reach that point, I'll want to change it completely 😅🏍🙈

 

Hope you all enjoy and look forward to getting additional info and tips from you all!

 

Here we have the Stock Levers vs the Womet-Tech Shorty Levers I installed. The OEM Signals vs the Mech-GTR signals I have and also painted the vents black. and lastly, the Stock Tail Light vs the TST Integrated Tail light.

Nice work Mark, especially painting those mesh vents black. I might have to borrow that idea from you. Keep it up man.👍

Some more new parts.

 

Womet-Tech Case Saver and Engine Slider. Womet-Tech Frame Sliders and Fork Sliders. Gilles Tooling Sprocket Cover. Spears Racing Keyless Gas Cap! 

 

Next up should be Gilles Tooling Chain Adjusters and then Exhaust, Filter, Quickshifter, and Tune! (Unless of course, I come across a killer deal on some suspension pieces) 😈😈🏍

That is looking good.  It is nice to see that you realize it will never be "completed".  I thought I was done a while back, but now I know better ;).   I recommend suspension upgrades and an ECU flash.  Those are my favorite mods.

Well...... everyone is different. I'm going on a year since I made any changes. I have no plans on doing anymore upgrades to my FZ. This website gave me all the tips I needed to do what I call the sensible upgrades that would cover motor performance, handling and safety. Anything beyond that, IMHO I would call crazy/OCD. Better way to say it - I would sooner buy a KTM 790 Duke before dumping more cash into my FZ 😁

 

Having said that, here are my changes which add up to about $1500:

 

Motor Performance

 

2WDW Flash

MWR air filter

R6 throttle tube

 

Handling

 

Bitubo XZE11 shock

Sonic Fork Springs/heavier oil

Michelin PR4 tires

EBC HH front pads

 

Safety - Me/Bike

 

Evotech radiator guard

Shogun frame sliders

OES axle sliders

Mad Hornets levers

Dart Manta windscreen

Barkbuster Storm hand guards

Mirror extenders

Blindspot mirrors

Osram Night Racer light bulb

Denali Soundbomb Mini Horn

I like what you've done so far, especially the TST tail light, I have one in clear. That's about the best thing anyone can do to help get them noticed from the rear if people are looking where they should be. Just a suggestion, some people like and keep the stock mirrors and buy extensions to improve their visibility but if you want to make a bigger improvement you can widen your field of view with some nice CRG, convex, bar end mirrors. They help a lot in spotting cars in other lanes and no one will mistake your bike for Mickey Mouse. Not that there's anything wrong with Mickey Mouse.

Suspension and ECU flash are next on the list being that the chain adjusters are already ordered and paid for. More than likely going with Ohlins rear, Andreani Front Fork Cartridges, and then FTEcu reflash along with their quick shifter. And I'm sure after that it will lead to rotors, pads, and lines. Never ending 😅

Looks like you've got the perfect daily ride build! I've been looking at headlights and everyone seems to use the Cyclops one?? I've changed out the aux lights to LEDs so I need something to match.

I've actually got a Womet-Tech bar end mirror on the left side of the bike. I only run one mirror and keep my head on a swivel.

That seems a little risky but it's yours. I take different risks myself, like riding without much gear sometimes.

I wonder if they would fit the 2015. Seem's like a very good price for bar end mirrors.

Haha, we're definitely on opposite ends! I always ride with gear but I've always only used one mirror.

They should! They're universal with an expanding chamber that fits into the bars/clip-ons.

Was bored today and after trying to decide what's the next round of parts I decided to remove my passenger pegs and do a rear brake reservoir delete. Overall, very happy with how well it cleaned up the rear and now it will push me to get a seat cowl. 😉😅

Radiator guard, seat cowl, and headlight are next cosmetically but the next big purchases will be suspension probably. Still trying to figure out which exhaust route I want to go down. Regardless of exhaust, I'll be tuning with FTEcu along with their quick shifter, and MWR air filter.

Quick video I filmed showing a timelapse of the first mods I did! I'll more than likely just do a pan-around of all the crash protection components being that I didn't film those installs.
