njdevils1990: FZ-07 mileage and service records

Recommended Posts

njdevils1990

Slowed down a bit but I'm still riding a bit! My current overall average since I bought my bike is 39 miles (62 km) per day. Since the 4 February this year my daily average is 89 miles (143 km) per day. My goal for this year is to get at least to 30,000 miles (48,280 km) on the bike which will give me a daily average of about 50 miles (80 km) per day. Did my 24,000 mile (38,600 km) service today and the next one will be the valve adjustment in about a months time. I'm going to cave in and likely take it to my dealer to do it as they quoted me about $450 USD for the job with plugs on top.

I just pulled the trigger and bought a Corbin seat for my FZ-07 from one of the (or the only) FZ-07 pages on Facebook. Looks like it's basically new and he only sold it as he got rid of his FZ-07 a little while ago. I'm excited to try it out and it at least looks like it'll be a big improvement over my current Yamaha Comfort seats. I may also look into the passenger back rest to add to it for the girlfriend and whoever else I give a ride to.

Installed the Corbin Gunfighter seat this morning and then did a 2-1/2 hour ride with it. I'm very happy with the seat!

Just got my bike back from the dealer to do an early valve adjustment, replace the chain and sprockets, fix a broken front blinker connection and check the wheel bearings as well as put in spark plugs. Total was $898.14, valve's were all in spec. The valve check, spark plugs, and valve cover gasket replacement were $406.43 ($61.43 in parts). The chain and sprockets were $416.10 ($214.85 in parts). No fee for checking wheel bearings or fixing the blinker connection. I'll be picking up the bike in a little while.

I've owned my FZ-07 for two years today! In that time I've only actually ridden it 17/24 months. I currently have 28,150 miles (45,300 KM) on her. I've averaged 38.5 miles (62 KM) per day. I plan to have 50,000 miles (80,467 KM) by the end of next year.

Just did the 28,000 mile (45,000 KM) service on the bike. Also ordered a new stock air filter after checking the original which was dirty. 28,497 miles (45,861 KM) are on the odometer now.

That's one serious seat!   Anything for comfort for sure.

It's a big improvement over even the Yamaha Comfort Seat. Only complaint I have with it is it's a little slick depending on the weather. Still well worth the $300 or so I spent on it. New they are around $500.
