    power commander with stock exhaust and intake

    Agree, the FZ6 does not have a smooth throttle out of the box. I am surprised to hear that condition persisted into the later FZ, MT, and FJ bikes. I think Yamaha have sorted it out by now though. It is a curious problem to have since it isn't like Yamaha couldn't produce a smooth Fuel...

    FZ1 Handlebars + Power Commander 3

    Sold to me... and I won't be using the FZ1 bar after all so it is available again. I've gone with a Renthal Steet Low.

    power commander with stock exhaust and intake

    The Dynojet site lists the Zero map as well as "completely stock bike" maps for various models. I haven't installed the software on my old windows PC yet to see what the differences are. I also haven't installed my PC, pipes, or decat yet. I will be doing some experimentation in the near...

    Delkevic Exhaust

    Just bought a set of these myself... $330 shipped. So looking forward to getting them installed next week. I have been considering a new bike, but decided to liven up the Fazer for a few hundred dollars vs. 10K on a bike that may only be marginally better for my purposes. Will post pics.

    Help with headlights

    I swapped out the cat's eyes lights and fairing for an 8" round LED setup. I knew I was losing Hi-Low functionality with this setup, and initially did not care. I don't ride much after dark. Now I have decided I would like the functionality after all. My headlight has a single three prong...

    Power Commander III Installation

    Interesting... I hadn't heard any of this. I have become accustomed to the twitchy throttle so that is less of a concern now. I've always been under the impression that most bikes come lean from the factory, especially in the mid-range, and that increasing airflow even a little bit should...

    Power Commander III Installation

    I recently purchased a PC III from a member here. Installation I am assuming is pretty straightforward. I'm looking for manuals on the internet. I don't have any mods right now, and will be running the Zero map for the time being. I've read mixed reviews that the Zero map smooths throttle...

    Selling 2007 FZ6

    Well shoot I can’t sell this bike. I enjoy it too much so I’m just going to have to make the space. Admins please delete if that is appropriate.

    Kit?

    It required 3 separate purchases. The led itself, the bucket, and the brackets. Search your favorite online retailer for the light and bucket. Just make sure you buy them in the same diameter. 8” fits pretty well on the FZ6 I think. For the brackets I bought a very nice set recommended by a...

    Selling 2007 FZ6

    I've decided to sell my Fazer. I'm getting a VStrom and don't have space or time for multiple bikes, so I have to sell a couple. It does have a salvage title due to a drop by the previous owner. I can provide all the details about repairs and whatnot to anyone interested. I'll be listing it...

    FZ1 Handlebars + Power Commander 3

    Possibly interested in both pending fitment. I know the bar will work. Which PC, and which FZ6 did you have?

    Fan problems

    Mostly. It was a barn find without a title. I can't register it, so it is dirt only and I have sold the instrument cluster and lighting to someone who was doing a complete restoration. Mine only had 3500 miles on it when parked in 1979 with a dead stator, so it is in great shape. I've...

    Fuel and/or oil additives

    I had an uncle years ago who was a Slick 50 rep, and he had a 1.3L engine from a Honda Civic on a trailer. He would start up the engine, and then drain the oil out of it and let it run for some period of time without oil to demonstrate how well it protected it was. It would overheat, then...

    Fan problems

    Fan is fixed! I put in some quick connects in case I need to drop the radiator again and don't want to have the fan dangling there. Now I can ride without worrying about going too slow or hitting red lights. My bike is running perfectly. I don't need any more maintenance, mods, or repairs...

    Multiple mod questions

    It would be interesting to have a power meter on our bikes that would give us an instant read on rwhp at any given time. I am absolutely certain that we are all using the same 50rwhp 90% of the time. Mods that add power are just giving you more of what you weren't using in the first place...
