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

Recommended Posts

Mr.Puss
After testing these out yesterday it's my opinion that these glasses do a pretty good job of blocking wind. (wish they were polarized) They feel comfortable, easy to put on w/ helmet on, fit real close to the face and breath well. (faces are different so the seal may not be the same for everyone) In some reviews about them people have said that they don't like them because they have a problem with dry eyes and that they don't block wind. Well, they do block direct wind to the eyes but they're ventilated, that means designed to allow air to the eyes so duh, you get the dry eye! I have the dry eye problem myself but I don't expect miracles. So, if your eyes are air sensitive buy goggles w/o ventilation but don't expect miracles there either, expect hot & sweaty around the eyes.

Good points. People complaining could always block a vent port or two no?... but of course that would entail using their delicate brain stuffings to make some serious concerted effort to problem solve not unlike a chimp or crow, a very dangerous and perhaps futile endeavor for so many to be sure.  
Maybe I'll give those airsoft 'Valken V-tec Zulu' glasses a go after all. Honestly, how many times can I look at the damn things and wonder? My restraint for purchasing bike stuffs inevitably falters every time anyway. Buy them already! Yeah, buy them already.... good idea self!  There we go, purchased!

Also bought some Electro-Luminescence bits and pieces for a couple of night riding safety projects for wife and myself.
 
Going to run 3x 18" EL panels/tape down the spines of our Helite airvests. One 2" white strip flanked on each side by single 1cm orange strips, powered by a 9v inverter that has various lighting operations, flash etc.
As per usual Canada is far too ghetto to have this stuff available so again its to the south I must go.

I finally got around to ordering my R6 throttle tube and oil and filters for mine and the woman's bikes.

Backed this project on indigogo by way of a two pack. I like lights. :D I draw the line at self loading glitter cannons though.

Oh man, we have to follow rules?  Well, one rule.  Ok then.... 
I learned about it on these forums, but Walmart has the best prices I've found on oil and filters and the necessary amount to do and oil on our bikes will total enough to qualify for free two day shipping.
 
The throttle tube was a perfect fit after some cable slack adjustment, and has has a slightly more grippy grip installed on it.  I might end up ordering the grip for the clutch side so they match, but I think I'll live for now.  It's not huge enough a difference to be a bother.

Bought my FZ-07 a set of  paddock stands. I never used paddock stands on any of my previous bikes because they all had center stands. 
But for now these are a lot cheaper than a $250 after market center stand @ only $71 for the set delivered. They were simple to assemble taking less than 10 minutes, including reading the instruction which were easy to follow. After watching a couple YouTube vids on how to use them, I was able to quickly load the bike up on both for the first time in only a few minutes by myself.
They are solidly built and I felt no flex in the units either alone or while under load.  These will make maintaining the FZ-07 so much easier than trying to work on it with it on the side stand.

I also picked up Disklock to add the second layer of protection (after the fork lock). It's a serious chunk of metal with what appears to be a very sturdy lock cylinder as well. Easy to use and even with power tools will take a bit of work to defeat. It's easy and quick to deploy and retrieve. Everyone should have one or two regardless of whatever other security precautions you may have just to make your pride & joy that much less inviting to thieves. 
Am I alone in thinking motorcycle thieves should get the death penalty? Call me old fashioned.

I also have these Venom stands, great quality and price. Didnt go for any disk locks as I didnt want to lug around additional crap so I felt a hidden hardwired alarm system was a better bet for me. A Scorpio sr-i900 with a perimeter sensor...nice effective system and the only thing I need to carry is the little digital fob.  
Death penalty? Oh but of course. Although, only after a nice week long getaway at the very isolated (and well prepared/soundproofed) "Chez Benny" (basement) with a Dremel, some 6" nails, a car battery, and a very noisy generator...and a very furry ball-gag. :D A proper atmosphere will instill the proper level of fear and despair.

I wanted a video camera with 4k but didn't want to pay the premium price for a top name brand camera and after looking around I found this. The reviews looked alright so I took a chance. We'll see later if it was a good decision.

....HAHAHA awesome.
 
Let me take a stab at it.... in the small dimly lit basement along with the extremely loud generator (perhaps even a 5 speed clutch drive wood-chipper powered by a nice old belching V-8, I envision marching back and forth, naked in front of said restrained thief while blasting nonsense from a battered tuba along with some other One-man-band bits while wearing a beer helmet avec swirly straws?
 
Im not even going to touch the "insertion" realm of swirly straws as Cruizin might finally see fit to waggle a finger at me. This is a bike forum after all.
 
If this special day ever comes to pass I'll fly you out and perhaps you can demonstrate on said thief, then we'll go pet the cats at the SPCA. :D

Today I took a pleasure ride around town for a couple hours before I pulled it into the garage to install the Cyclops Gen6 (7,000 claimed Lumens) LED headlight replacement bulb so that I won't need to spend $4k on a night vision goggles. :D
I didn't need to trim the dustboot to fit the Gen6. I wish they'd came up with a better wire management system behind the headlight than what amounts to some left over inner tube material. B-|

Picked up a new air filter since I accidentally fogged through it before putting it away for the winter.
 
https://www.knfilters.com/search/product.aspx?prod=ya-6814
 
Seems like it will be a pretty nice upgrade regardless!
 
By the way, did I even need fog? I didn't my first winter, and then found various things for/against it, but decided to this winter. Fuel was non-eth and treated with stabilizer... I'm new to maintaining a motorcycle (or anything, for that matter) so take pity on my stupidity! Thanks!

@nykx, no question is stupid here. Everyone here is top notch on the respectful scale so fear not! Its probably safe to say most if not all of us are figuring out this bike on various levels.  
What do you mean by "fogged through it"?
