What did you buy for you or your FZ-07 today?

Recommended Posts

So what's the current rate for a gallon of petrol these days? Here it's the eqv. 7.37 USD.
 In Atlanta, Georgia USA, 87 octane is around 2.15, 93 is probably around 2.75-3.50/gallon depending on the station/part of the city you're in. 
 
 
 
Finally got the front tire delivered. Going to have this and the rear tire from my earlier post installed Saturday morning.

Also got the cyclops 7000 H4 ordered and on the way.

Regarding the Cyclops, is the adjusting of the beam the same as the stock bulb. As in, do you just turn the screws on the outside of the headlight?

Yes, and you will need to adjust it.  Mine needed to be adjusted up to be set correctly.

After riding the bike for a year and a half, I finally pulled the trigger on the Cyclops headlight.

Also picked up LED turn signals for the front and back.

Bought a X-Tender gel seat cover today! Local fz07 rider said it was great. Hope it works well! Had a short 2-hr ride and my bony butt is sore!

Ordered a cheap LED bulb to see if it can make enough of a difference, or if I need a new headlamp. If the bulb gives a noticeable improvement, I'm going to spend some extra cash for a really good LED bulb.

Hey.. I'm new here. 2nd day of my fz-07. But last night I could not see well. Is this an extensive upgrade over stock? Is it plug and play?

@djxn40, many of us have had the stock headlight adjusted very low from the factory. Just adjusting it correctly will help a lot with night riding. A good LED bulb is a nice upgrade though. I have the Cycloos one and am very happy with it.

I find that the headlight is low for low beam, but correct for high beam. If you raise the low beam, you will probably find that high beam won't light up the road anymore.

After a couple hours of casually cruising around I experience some very annoying sharp inner elbow pain throttle side.
 
Currently running a drag bar, and since everyone here speaks highly of them I bought some Renthal ultra-lows. Hopefully these along with some foot peg/body/controls tweaks will help.
Discomfort = Drags-ville.
