Finally got my FZ-07! 2017 ABS w/ mods

Recommended Posts

After waiting for so  long to buy another motorcycle, I finally bought my new 2017 FZ07 w/ ABS!  Has everything I wanted from a bike and more!  8,035 miles when I bought it.  I've ridden a ZX6R, R1, and Harley, but since moving to California almost 3 years ago I had nowhere to put one.  I have a couple things I want to change that I will talk about in the other sections, but for now I'm thinking:

 

1 - taking off stickers on gas tank

2 - Need to figure out how to change the throttle cable position so I can get the stock mirrors on it.  Living in California I need all the vision I can get out of mirrors, and the throttle cable is running directly on top of the mirror insert. Either this or go back to stock bars which are, to me, more comfortable?

3 - Phone mount

4 - The exhaust is LOUD.  I was told I could get a db killer for the exhaust but I don't know enough about it to know if I can just add it, or if it'll need a retune after, but I'd like to be able to use a bluetooth headset, and I don't think I'll be able to hear anything with it the way it is right now.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated.  

 

Current Mods:

Akrapovic Exhaust
K&N intake 
Custom flash and tune with commander
Carbon Fiber Gas Tank Pad Cover 
Carbon Fiber Side Grips 
Custom FZ-07 Handle Grips 
LED integrated tail light 
Bar end mirrors
Tail deleted. Yoshimura License bracket installed. 
Custom LED turn signals
CRG levers. 
M1 Handle Bars (give it a more sport bike feeling)
Engine & Side Guards

Have you tried it on wet yet? Does the after-market fender spray your back?

What aftermarket fender?  Kind of confused by the question.

I believe he's asking about the tail tidy. 

 

Congrats on the bike!

Yes, he is indeed asking about the tail tidy and its ability to shield you from water and grime that the wheel picks up.

Would you happen to have the stock handle bar laying around? I'd be interested in buying if you do. 😊
