[div]Hi, took a demo ride last year on the -07 while waiting for a turn on the -09, I was pleasantly surprised with the spread of power and sweet shifting on the little bike. I had to keep up with the big bikes so had to ring it out pretty good. I didn't even stick around for the -09 ride as the -07 was that impressive and fit me perfectly. Long story short, just found a used FZ-07 (graphite/blurple) with some of the mods I would do so bought it and just a couple days ago found this forum...good stuff and now I'm hoping Mr. Hord comes out with a package deal for his airbox & PCV as I'd like to get the little bike up to factory claimed HP and torque...Mark[/div]

Welcome to the forum. There's a few other bay area FZ-07 owners on this site including myself. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. This site is great.

Wow, ok a lot of response, I'll pin the map when I get a chance. My FZ-07 is the graphite/blurple with Yoshi R77 carbon exhaust and tail tidy and a Puig sport wind screen. I only picked the bike up yesterday so took the opportunity to change the oil and filter from the Yamalube to Amsoil 10w-40 Metric synthetic and filter. Lubed the chain and all the pivot points and pulled the muffler to install the DB killer, no way to get that little screw in with out pulling muffler, at least for me. I'll see if the DB killer helps with the popping on decel, I feel the bike needs a fuel controller now but am waiting to see if Mr. Hord offers his airbox with PCV in a package deal, I think that would do it.

Hi Beemer,  I only have the 6 mile test ride on it, shortly after getting it home it started to rain and still is, the prior owner told me to be careful in the wet as the Dunlop Q3s weren't made for it. I'm assuming he's correct since I don't know any difference, any way, to answer your question I'll just say 'probably, can't they all?' Mark

Inside joke at the cost of (me) looking silly. Of course it can. Good answer, though!
