Got some "Grip Puppies" off Busters,look a little bit "big" but really do stop the vibes through the bars. :thumbup in hindsight I suppose I could have put my original bar ends back on but I like the Renthal ones,just a bit to light,hence the vibes.

what's the "fuel cut off system"? I've not experienced it on mine.

When you shut the throttle and after about 10 secs open the ,throttle again  there is a slight delay  before the throttle picks up. The owner of the FZ1 I rode never noticed but coming from a carb bike it was very obvious to me. Many never notice it, but those who do fit a fuel cut eliminator.

Can't believe it! I have actually got that happening with mine but just thought that's the way they all were,I'm now going to look into a fuel cut eliminator !

Well wise ! better a slightly expensive low mileage minter than a cheap & cheerful high mileage load of potential trouble,your new bike's hardly run in even if it is a few years old. :thumbup :woot.

Is it me, or has somebody stolen these bikes' batteries?  ;)

The size of the latest lithium bike batteries the well off racers use now are really small,you wouldn't think they'd be able to work properly but they do,in most cases better than good gel ones!

Bob Heath Visors I'm sure will have something,and they're very helpful.

Went to look at an 2011  FZ1 with 21000miles on it  last night with a friend who was interested in buying it. Immaculate except for a small tank dent like a knee dent and a small gouge on on the swinging arm, but nothing major. Didn't realise I knew the owner until we arrived to look at it. There was lot of traffic so the prospective owner just rode it around the car park. Owner offered me a spin on it, at first I declined as I had no gear but he gave me his jacket, helmet and gloves and said go on. Since I ride all the time traffic does not worry me much. I was surprise how quick it was, but a bit snatchy on and off the throttle in the traffic, got through the traffic to a clear bit of road, with a few bends, handled well even though it was a bit hard for my liking, but ruined by one pain in the arse bit, 'the fuel cut off system'. It was like driving a car with turbo lag. I thought this issue was sorted on the later models. If my friend does buy it, the FCE is the first thing I would tell him to fit. It ruined what was otherwise a very nice bike.

The burning question is, Would I change the FZS1000 for one? Absolutely not. The biggest turn off is the small tank compared to the FZS1000.
On the way home my friend gave me the key of his 340hp BMW twin turbo 535d auto estate with paddle shift, what a weapon, every time I powered out of a bend the traction control light kept flashing  :lol tiptronic was surprisingly good very quick to change. Even on sport setting it was not great to hold the road as it rolled a lot, but a rocket in a straight line :D Enjoyed that  :eek

He asked me if he could take my FZS1000 for a spin so he could compare the two when he takes the FZ1 for a spin on Sunday evening. Today we went out swapped bikes (he has an 97 TRX850) he came back with a big grin and his only complaint was it that it was heavy, but then compared to the TRX is weighs a ton. TRX was nice to ride with the riding position very comfortable for a bike with low bars and very very torquey. Took some time to get used to all the torque since I use the gears a lot. That was also a bit hard on the suspension but since he has 4 stone on me it was fine for him. The only issue I found was that the wheel bearing seem to be worn, but we will check them after the weekend.
Nice start to the bank holiday weekend  :D
