    My FZX 750

    My Yamaha (well, you get a little bit of my Suzuki as well...)
  3. Long term member, but I've been unfaithful; haven't had a Yamaha for a while. I now have a rather tasty FZX 750 again! [sharedmedia=garage:vehicles:1061] My childhood dream bike, improved. On a side note; how do I remove pics from my gallery? I no longer own the bikes in there apart from this one, and I would like to remove them! Seeing the XJR upsets me... Loved that bike sooooo much.

  5. Cool. I'll see if I can find a set! :-) Here's a pic of the bike in question...
  6. Will they fit? I have just got my hands on a modified Yamaha FZX 750, and the brakes are already good, but... The blue spot callipers are just awesome, and they look brilliant as well. ;-)
  7. Bit late with my response... I bought mine new, but preregistered. 60 plate, 0 miles on the clock, bought in 8/2011. So I've had her about 2 years now. 16500 miles later, still on original chain & sprockets and on 2nd front & 3rd rear tyre (punctured one). Good bike. If a bit bland & boring... Does everything well enough... Handles well enough, is fast enough, stops well enough. Doesn't excel at anything. As for MPG - saw a few numbers before of 180 to a tank. I get 140 on average?!? I must have a loose wrist! :-) My IXIL full system makes her sound nice at least...
  8. 18 and an R6 - be prepared to pay through the nose! Unfortunately, it is the d!ckheads that ruin it for the rest of us, as always! Good luck; I'd suggest MCE, as I have had good experiences with them myself. CN used to be good, but not for me anymore???

    XJ6 TYRES

    9.5k miles out of a set? Wow. Impressive... I'm on 4500, and my rear Dunlop IS getting a bit low... Then again, my old XJR would have chewed it up completely by now!

    Yamaha XJ6

    The buzzing I meant is the engine - in that rev range (between 6/7k RPM), the engine is a little buzzy... It smooths out if I either drop or raise the revs out of that band...

    XJ6 TYRES

    I'd stick with Bridgestone. I have been a huge fan since I had my XJR 1300, and managed to get 6000 miles out of a back tyre... Was down to the radial by then, but STILL gripped. I still miss that bike - did 35k miles on it in 18 months of owning it!

    Yamaha XJ6

    Bridgestones? Mine (2010 model) came with Dunlop SportMax's on it? I'm not a fan, and my next set will be Battlax's of one type or other...

    xj600 raise

    D'oh. Yes, shorter, of course...

    Yamaha XJ6

    ine gets a buzz going between 6/7000 RPM - a bit irritating, as that's exactly motorway speed, 70/75 MPH... It goes away at 7000+, so now I cruise at 81/85!

    xj600 raise

    If the suspension uses "dog bones" to adjust the ride height, get some longer ones made? I'm sure they must be available from somewhere? Otherwise, I wouldn't know, really. I assume you've trawled the web?
  16. Welcome from a fellow n00b! on the bargain...
  17. There's a rather nice Termignoni system on eBay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/140597900601?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 However, most aftermarket systems seems to have a more conventional silencer setup... I like the underslung can! One of the reasons for going for this bike rather than one of the competition's offerings (Gladius, ER6, Hornet...). I like the look of the Two Brothers one... But I can't get a good pic of the Devil system?
  18. Mine has no problem getting into 6th. Back to Yamaha, I'd say. What revs are you running at 70 MPH?
  19. Mate of mine is shoehorning a FZR 1000 EXUP motor into his FZX 750... Engine fits OK, but the problem is the exhaust: QUOTE: "i just been offered a complete exhaust with power valve,vance and hines can, and servo, cdi,cables, etc, for £100 i am just thinking buy that ,it might save me some hassle, i wonder if its just a case of putting power to the servo and wire to the cdi, or if there are any relays involved, any one know ?" As the man said, anyone know? Answers on a postcard.... Oh wait. No. a reply here would be MUCH quicker!
  20. Bit of a BUMP... We have FREE listing this month on Please give it a go! What have you got to lose (apart from some stuff you wanted rid off anyway! )
  21. OK, simple question (I hope): Will an '87 FZR 1000 Genesis 18" rear wheel fit my '87 FZ 750, also with an 18" rear? It's just that bit wider, and there's a cheap one on you-know-where...
