    Talking Greetings from South Florida

    Hello ladies and gentleman,
    I recently purchased a 2014 FZ6R and just joined the forum.
    I'm a car guy and a heavy modder, but since I am a new rider I don't want to play around with the bike too much. Any simple/important mods you guys would recommend?
    Looking forward to ask plenty of questions and gain knowledge here

    Thank you in advance!

    Delray Beach here!


    There is a pair of FZ6Rs here in my community as well, looks like his and hers kinda situation. Never been able to stop them and say hi though.



    Welcome to the bike life


    One of the first mods I did was a fender delete, and integrated tail lamp.
    This allows me to ditch the rear signals entirely since they are built into the tail lamp. easy to do, and really cleans up the rear.

    Or you can get one of Martins exhausts

    bike really comes alive and sounds amazing


    :welcome:

    Thanks man, been eager for a while but the timing and the right bike never came along.
    I've actually gotten told by a few to change the exhaust for 2 simple reasons mainly: to be more noticed by drivers and like you said "sounds amazing".
    First will complete my riding gear though (better safe than sorry) meanwhile I'll get to know the bike and my limits morose than the bike's.

    Indeed, the fender delete and integrated tail lamp clears up the back, but like you've noted it takes away from the notice-ability which is crucial in a place like Miami with so many drivers I think. Time will tell!
