What did you do to your Yamaha FZ-07 today?

Recommended Posts

norcal616

Tracked down and found an extra motor on fleabay to start my boosted E85 build for next year ... this motor is gonna be torn down and rebuilt with aftermarket rod, valves, springs, ceramic coated pistons, ARP head/cylinder studs, HD clutch springs, transmission service(cut gears and shim),set turbo sized piston ring gap and bigger 600cc  injectors (oem is 250cc) 

Just need ARP bolts, transmission pulled to get sent out, order bigger injectors and find some ceramic coated pistons to finish off the big items...

Thanks, I am going to put Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armor ceramic coating on them this weekend to hopefully mitigate the never ending cleaning I see in my future 🤣. Looking forward to getting them on the bike.

Waiting for some Titanium rotor bolts and sprocket nuts to put it all back together. Probably a good thing right now.

Rode it to work, record early in the year för Stockholm Sweden. But 8 C and dry roads so why not start the 2020 season already :)

Normally it would be late March or early April

Picked up wheels and was cleaning before I put the ceramic coating on and found this little scratch/mark on the outer front rim. It’s not big and probably won’t be very noticeable but now it sticks out to me. Should I take it back or just let it go? Torn as what to do.

Looks like a light scuff in the finish. I'd try to polish it out with some compound, it'll probably come right out.

Toothpaste will work (like compound)too and leave it Minty Fresh 😝

Love the white wheels! Do you have any experience with the Gtechniq wheel coating or any others? Even on my stock rims ive been looking for a solution to help make cleaning them easier.

Thanks for the replies! My anal retention is not a good quality sometimes. I hit it with a little polish and can barely see it. Going to let it ride!

 Thanks Again

Funny you should ask 😂. In the process of cleaning and coating as we speak. The wheel armour got good reviews so I am giving it a go. No other experience with it but this will be a good test!

That is funny! Well I look forward to hearing how it works. I have been thinking about wheel coatings ever since the FZ got its final bath for the winter back before Christmas!

Just wait till you try to spoon on the new rubber to these pimped rims without scratching them.  😯

Nice your going to like it. If you are a patient man your airbox will come out in one piece. If your like me, you will need a dust pan for the airbox 😁
