Wife and I went for a road trip today to Valhalla. Scored the rest of this seasons goodies from AP. Had a great lunch at The Bend in Manchester. Talked like middle school girls about everynothing.

Got an aluminum subframe, slipper clutch, underslung brake carrier w/Brembo caliper, Dymag rear wheel with custom spacers, caliper and sprocket carrier. Also got another exhaust can and some more bodywork I can fix up, woot!

Sounds like a great day! All kinds of goodness!

Might have to change the team name to Dumpster Dave's or Goodwill Racing, lol. I enjoy refurbishing fiberglass to save a few bucks to help offset the cost of the cool go fast goodies. Frees up shop space for Andy too.

Curious to see how much weight this shaves too. Last time I weighed was at pittrace 2019 on MotoAmerica's scales I was 156kg with 2 gals of fuel onboard. I just wish my weight loss program was as effective as the bikes.

Hot off the digital bathroom scale; stock FZ rear ready to race is 33lbs even, new Dymag ready to race is 28.2lbs. That's 4.8lbs unsprung weight, nice!

Guessing the subframe will save another 5ish.

Wonder what would happen if someone remade the frame fully out of alum and stiffened it up a bit

Ohh My G🤦‍♂️, I'll never be able to be the cool kid with the best stuff. Its over, I'll pretended I'm keeping up with the masse's while they install Suter slipper clutch, turbo FKin chargers, swingarm extensions, etc. Walking away with my head held high, Yip I'm the only guy with a street FZ-07 within a 100 mile radius. If they don't know!! It never happened.. Right!!!

Here I was all delighted with myself for doing a fork rebuild......... LMAO..

That's how it all starts. "I'll just put it in a little", "I could stop any time I wanted", "If he can do it I can too", "How hard can it be?".

Struggling myself trying to decide what I’m gonna buy for the FZ this winter. I have loaded carts ready to go in just one mouse click.

My problem is that I like “Stuff”!

Haha, I was duped. That's why my wife made the preemptive attack of taking me to AP's shop before I started 'clicking' out of control, lol. She had already set a prearranged limit on the trip that was far cheaper than my unsupervised shopping on the web. I hate it when I'm outsmarted by her.

Personal shopping at AP with Andy beats mouse click shopping any day. 

Nice score on those parts. 👍🏻 

I’ve been trying to get in touch with Andy, I’d like to get some more AP parts, he’s hard to get a hold of.

After 3 seasons on the FZ, I think I can say I'm DONE!!!! I had a "wishlist" at Revzilla, it's empty now. There really isn't anything else I want for it? I've never been as happy with any bike as I am with my FZ-07. I am currently setting my wife's R3 up for track duty. It's not as fun buying parts for a bike I don't ride.....

Then just ride it, it's like when I have to taste the cake before my kids have any.... I'm making sure its up to standard and if anything goes wrong I'll be the one to hit the deck. LOL .....

I have messaged him on FB and tried his emails. I’ll try him again after the Holidays.

If you make the pledge to be done I will also. I have said I am done so many times just to need that one more thing. So, I am done until maybe next winter. The only thing left I would do is some head work and bore the throttle bodies. 
I too think this bike is the cat’s meow!

I don’t want to be done..... If I go much further, I think I’ll have reliability issues. I might powder coat my wheels eventually. Mechanically, I’m done modding 😎. Take the pledge with me!!! 😜
