I might be interested in the shock.  Did you order the shock from Nitron with your 15 stone weight?  Did you state a pillion weight too?

No pillion weight, never carry one. I just had it and the front springs set to my weight...cost me about £40-£50. I have the receipt somewhere

Hello Paul, no problem bud...I'm 15st and it handles really well. Obviously they'll be parameters either side of that...what I couldn't say

Okie Dokie

Leo Vince GP Pro Slip-on: Great condition, no dints, dents or scrapes. No baffle, as I've always run without. Sounds immense!! especially at higher revs. The single best looking and sounding can for this bike, imo. Other than Paul Brooker's I've never seen another £275 + postage

! No longer available
(not my bike, I can do a vid if anyone requires)

Rizoma Fat Bar Risers: New in opened box. I test fitted fitted them once with the intention of buying the Rizoma Drag Bar....didn't happen so they are now surplus. £65 inc

DynoJet Power Commander 5: Been on the bike for a couple of months, works faultlessly. Comes in the original box with everything from new.

SOLD as bundle with modified air box lower, O2 sensor and K&N filter.

Genuine Carbon Yamaha Tank Bra: 2 months or so on the bike, no marks, dints or cracks/scratches. This is genuine Yam and so comes with the genuine tuning fork logo. This has a far better looking finish than the GB Moto, PowerBronze etc offerings. Lovely bit of kit and looks really nice, especially against a black tank. £80 + postage

Gilles Adjustable Rear Sets (ABS Models Only): Bought around the time I sold the original sets to Noggy, these are the gold ones (as opposed to the black of the same model) and are multi adjustable. I believe you can even go GP style 1-up and 5-down. Easy enough fit which took me around 30 mins without instructions (and I'm no Einstein) These are lighter than the OE pegs and look 100% nicer imo. Lovely bit of kit. My only gripe was that the pegs don't fold like the OE ones do. Not a major concern for me. £225 + postage

Nitron Shock (NTR R1): "The most popular of our shocks: perfect partner for road and street riding..." Simply p**ses all over the OE unit. I have/had Yacuga springs on the front end too and the bike felt very planted. It has a black spring.  Provisionally sold

I'll get pics tomorrow when the rain has stopped. The shock is still on the bike and will be coming off by next weekend

There's will be a belly pan + brackets (unsure of brand as was on the bike at purchase) couple of stone chips, nothing major, plus a couple of other bits as soon as I've sorted through it

Collection welcome on everything from work or home

Sensible offers welcome.

Did you order a PCV and flies yet? I have a virtually brand new PCV (all boxed, everything there) and unused flies for sale, it'll save you a good few £££ on new

I have a just cleaned and oiled K&N I'll throw in too

Sorry to be a pain but I thought I'd better update

These are no longer available I'm afraid, I've decided to sell the bike and I'll be putting it back to stock. I may possibly have some lower risers from the bike but I won't know what the buyer wants until the bike sells.

I think I'm going to sell my Gen2  :\

Scott Oiler sold

Carbon Light Surround - £70 posted. Bought but never fitted.

Carbon Rad guards - £70 posted.

Paul,that tank was used for my commute. A combination of quick motorway/A road riding on the way in and town/twisties on the way home.

Out yesterday with a K2 and R1, about 100 miles of twisties and 15 miles of A120 and I'm going to get nowhere near 155, that's with tank brimmed too

I have a set of OEM Gen2 FZ1 risers if they're any good?

If not, I have some lower risers (around 45mm total) that I'll be selling as soon as my new bars arrive

The OEM are standard silver, the lower are sprayed black but in need of a touch-up/re-spray

Apologies, I didn't see your message in amongst all the ones from Noggy.


With stage 3 mods I have managed to get 155 out of a tank, this was with f-trip flashing for around 35 miles. That's with jondaddy82 map on a pcv, and the tank brimmed

Just replied, nog

It's still the same as the day I bought it in that respect noggy.

I was only asking as I had the chance to buy some (Pro Taper Contour) and Rizoma risers. I left the bars and got the risers

Unused Copperdawg flies

Any Gen2 owners out there got Pro Taper bars on their bike?

They look more suited to a SM bike but I like the look

I have Renthal bars and lower risers atm but just wanted a first hand opinion if there's any about

Title edited

PC3 has sold

Edit, Front pegs and foot rest assemblies and O2 sensor Sold

Not yet Slappy, although a fella on one of the FZ1 groups on bookface is going to the states on business within the next few months and has put it to members regarding taking their ECU's and going a group flash (sounds naughty)

The reason for the sale is I've bought the PC5 instead.

This is for all. It's advertised on Gumtree, a fella has made an offer which I've countered with £140 (meet in middle), so if anyone wants it at that price and postage, I'd rather sell it to a forum member.....but be quick, he wants it tonight.

I take it you don't have the o2 optimiser?

Re the rear sets. I'm in love with the new ones. The gear change is crisper and the back brake actually feels like it works now without having to stamp on it and activate the ABS. I do a lot of slow riding and it's so much easier to control with these on. If I do go farther afield than work, 30 miles ea.w, or weekend rideouts then I'll just lower them. I don't see myself getting rid of the bike...I still have plenty I want to do to it....and if ever I do I'll just get some OE off of fleabag.

I forgot to list them and as such I've not thought of a price (ebay shows nothing) I must mention that the previous owner of the bike has sprayed them black, he hasn't lacquered them so the paint is chipping in places and has rubbed off the heel plates almost completely. There is no physical damage but they will need some attention on the aesthetic front

Make me a sensible offer as I have a big box of OE parts that I just want out of the way tbh

Hi Nog

I've just installed some Gilles sets, so I have the full assembly of rear sets including heel plates (minus the two bolts used to attach the rear master cylinder to the offside heel plate), also original front OEM pegs as well as some Oberon front pegs (these are attached atm)

The 02 sensor is the little white thing you can see in the bottom pic by the Power Commander sticker, it's aftermarket from ebay and is used to blank off the OEM exhaust sensor

Right, the time has come to pass my bike on to someone else.

I'll be reverting the bike back to standard unless someone makes an acceptable offer for it as it stands

I've been offered £3.6k from a Yamaha dealer in stock form, which means they'll possibly be a sizeable collection of after market parts for sale afterwards

I'm more than prepared to sell as is, but only if the offer is acceptable

So if anyone is looking for a standard bike (w/gilles rearsets, as some pillock sold his stock ones a few weeks ago) I'm looking for offers exceeding £3.6k

I'm off to work now so pics and more details will be added later.

Well Google images would tend to disagree with his explanation. 5-6 bikes and not one had that part there.

I'll ask the local stealer tomorrow if he knows what it is and where should it be.

I'll also have one to compare it to, too...having tyres fitted tomorrow and the guy has an FZ1

He says it's the reg/rec, and that they're there from the factory
