just bought a 170/60/17 bridgestone BT016 AND 120/70/17 Bridgestone S20 as a replacement for my stock tires.
let's see if there's any different from the stock BT021 on 160s.
16500KM on the stock tires with 70% highways/city, and rest mostly on off-ramps.
planning my first track day...
this video I shot few months back on my fz6r, the bike can turn nicely around the ramps safely with some speed. getting yourself ready before the turn and position is important. sometimes I push the bike to my own limits and I can go around at ~125-130km/h (~75mph?) comfortably, so you are good...
totally forgot about this post.
yeah I have no idea what that was either and the bike runs fine since then so it might be one of those "problem" that show up once and never come back again...hopefully:p.
yesterday, my bike stalled/shut-off while I was clutching in from 2nd to 1st during a short around the block ride with my kid.
here's a short video clip.
it seems to fire up and run no problem today, I've never encounter that problem in my ~8000km...
congrats Ade!!! i really like the white/red combo, and best of luck on your skill test!
did last owner painted the frame bars black? all the white fz6r's that i have seem have red bars... which looks even more better imo.
I've been doing that ever since i have my fz6r (10months)... i did that on my cbr250 too.
kickstand seems fine, only damage I've seem is my concrete floor so far.
just have to do it right and life would be much easier inside the garage :D
i tell people that too, sirens from a fire truck is way louder and yet people don't GTFO so yeah, i agree with you on that 100%.
and i didn't modified my exhaust to be "loud". i wanted a nice sound .... a proper "sport bike" sound for myself that's closer to what i heard on those race bikes...
i know a local fz6r rider, he did the same exhaust mod too. but our bikes sounds different. his bike is more "loud", mine is more well... what you are hearing in the video.
initially i wanted the same thing done, but i am "weird", i wanted to try things out, i was thinking.. my car exhaust...
