Love the colour scheme. Hate the gearing (why do the come geared so high stock, 100 in first is silly?).

Nope, don't have a motorbike, but I'm only 17 after all. Planning to get one some day.

(Hey Lex, valve job every 6K at $1K a pop.)


Which is exactly why my Bro-in-law lent me this thing:

for a few months last May.

All I have to do is change the belts and check/adjust the valves. He provides all the parts, I do the work and then play with it for a while. Easiest thing in the world to change the belts on too [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img] except they have to be tuned like a guitar string .... ie. the tension is checked by the frequency of vibration [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif[/img] .... sounds wacko ...... but its pretty brilliant, and easy, really [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]

Fun bike though especially when its a loaner [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img]

1994 DR350 that is worth about $700. I don't ride it cause it needs $400 to $500 for a OEM clutch. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img]

Last clutch lasted two long hard rides and about 10 rides to work [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img]

Wow, I'm impressed...Quite a few motorheads in here [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img] Jumkie, I am duly impressed. That is a nice collection of metal you've got there...

Bootsakah, I love my FZ6 more than any other bike I've ridden. There are actually quite a few options for after-market exhaust, and it's highly recommended that you replace the stock pipes. They sound like dual kitties purring...kinda sad really [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img] Other than that I have no complaints about the FZ6. It rides fast and smooth. I can ride it all day long and never have any problems.

Well thanks for showing off your sweet rides everyone!
