1/4-1/2 choke is all I ever needed on my FZS600 to start it and then maybe a tad more to keep it running on the coldest of mornings.
It sounds like you may have flooded it and then drained the battery.
Charge the battery or jump start the bike with a small amount of choke (or none to start with)
Just a thought, but is the drain screw closed properly?
It looks like bacon (allegedly) and is even meant to taste like bacon. Why the hell don't they just eat bacon? pokefun
Will this oil remove the "clonk" sound from the gearbox?
The FZS600 is very picky when it comes to chain tension. do it exactly as per the handbook (35mm IIRC) and the clonk all but disappears.
Am I missing something?
Yes, the meat
Why do this to a perfectly good fireblade?
1. it helps the rider from sliding off the back
2. it was probably far from a good fireblade having been written off prior to the conversion work starting

the later bikes do have lower pillion pegs but not that much lower.
The link arm on the red bike looks to be a different shape to the one on the silver bike. Maybe the previous owner modified it.
You have the full Givi Wingrack fitted. Many people want these as they take the panniers too.
Most people only have the standard Givi rack (in the last picture you posted) which is a lot simpler (and a lot cheaper).
A Givi box on a Givi rack wont rattle around unless (like most) you have lost the little rubber bits from on top of the rack. Then they rattle like buggery
Ear plugs in and you will never notice it though and will be thankful that you have somewhere to store your crash helmet whilst you do things and have somewhere other than inside your jacket to put that cold bottle of milk that the Mrs asked you to pick up while you're out.
