Howdy all...

Name is Mat. I'm located in Colorado. I used to ride and race R1's, but I'm getting too old to be bending over the tank like that. LOL! So, I figured what the heck and looked into getting an FZ1. I just purchased a beautiful 2009 FZ1-S that only has 5400 miles on it. :) I figured it would probably be a good idea to find a good forum with information and such like I used to get with my R1's. Glad to be here!

Hey there , Been off and on . Needed to change my password . Never listed myself as “ New Member “ so here it goes
Denver canyon rider , awhile ago a shop guy said “ why don’t you just go get a R1 “ …that was 6 years ago And i still have my 2007 raven FZ1
I would say “ all “ of the normal items to move the bike to more sporty done . Scorpion pipe, Rear pegs and center stand removed , Healtec quick shifter ( love this one ) , Power Commander, Lowered bars , Penski rear shock, Fren Tubo Stainless Brake lines … This year winter mods, Race Tech front springs, Rear Sets I am sure I forgot a bunch but you get the idea . Very capable , great Bikes for sure !

John - Welcome from another Denver area rider. I'm new to CO and didn't even know we had any type of canyons to ride around here. LOL Then again, I just got my FZ1 last Wednesday. I used to ride and race R1's. I love them, however, now I'm too old to be breaking my back and wrists trying to ride them. I've only taken the FZ1 out once since I've gotten it and I have to say that I'm absolutely in love with it and wish I got one earlier. Love being able to sit up and enjoy the ride without my wrists and back hurting after the ride. :)

Anyway, be safe and keep the rubber side down. Nice ride!

Hi Guys, Girls

My name is Keith, I'm getting my FZ1n delivered today its a 2010 so i think that makes it a Gen 2 doenst it?.

last bike was a 1998 Bandit 600, fell off broke it!! and fractured my spine......the less said about that the better though ;-)

i've been riding for around 4 yrs and cant wait to get on my FZ1, its completely standard and all Black, i'll be looking to modify the airbox and change the standard can at a later date but for the moment just want to get used to 1000cc and around twice the power of the 600cc Suzuki bandit.

looking forward to having a good laugh with you on the forum and picking your brains.

All the best, God bless

Keith

Hi all, Glad to be here. Finally added on to my stable, started with my 2006 FZ6 and now added a 2007 FZ1 and can’t be more excited to get out and put this bike to the test. Have only one week of riding so far and still can’t stop smiling. It was a little modified when I purchased the FZ1 with a power commander and a quick shifter, which I thought was a little silly for the street until I got on it and wow!!! Lots of fun.
Greetings
Will

Hi everyone it’s Dan here.

From Singapore, which is a little Island near to the equator. If you guys know this place then it won’t be strange that you know the car prices here are ridiculous! And that’s why:

Got my FZ1S 2014 in all black last week. She’s pretty much stock and I removed boxes and racks that the previous owner had fixed on her (might put them back on if I decide to tour)

Always wanted something sporty but I feel I’m too tall for sport bikes so the FZ is quite a good compromise, can happily say she’s growing onto me. I used to ride a Honda Silverwing and started out with a Kawasaki KRR150.

For work I’m a commercial pilot and in my free time I’m currently window shopping for mods to be done on the bike.

Shopping around for exhausts but due to some local regulations I’ve only got Bodis and Leo Vince for options. Any thoughts or advice?

Looking forward to learn more from everyone here.

Safe rides and clear skies
