well i got an offer on my 929 that i just couldnt pass up. bike had almost 28000 miles on it and i have been thinking about getting something newer for a lil while now.
i was thinking about getting a new R1 or since i just got a new job at the Honda shop here i get bikes at invoice so thought about an 08 1000RR.
BUT i love the streetfighter look so now im leaning toward a new FZ1. just wanted to see if anyone has some FZ1 pics with custom headlights, subframes etc......

I'd personally go with the 1000RR and sell the parts I didn't need. FZ1s are kinda sluggish unless you like the sport touring thing.

Fuck the R1 unless you like taking transmissions apart.

+1 GO :honda:

BETTER TO TURN A SPORTBIKE TO A FIGHTER THAN A FACTORY NAKED TO ONE, BECAUSE THEY SKIMPU OUT ON SOME PERFORMANCE PARTS (SUSPENSION, MOTOR TUNING, ETD...)

well i checked insurance on the R1 and 1000RR and all i can say is FUCK that! so i got the FZ1 and man do i LOVE it!!!!! insurance is actually cheaper than my 929 was and i got it for waaaayyyy below MSRP so i had to get it. already got some big plans for it and going to "de-tune" it this weeknd (cams, timing,blah blah blah yall know) to be more R1 style engine but its still smoking fast! heres some first day pics. ill post some more after i take off the giant mud flap and winkers. and that exhaust will be replaced by a nice carbon leo vince :)

well first things first. im doing all performance mods. full akrapovic system, pc3, k&n, ign module, and quickshift. should have all this and the intergrated tailight and flush mounts for the front tomorrow. i havent decided on what i want to do about the headlight. its kinda grown on me so ill prolly keep it that way for a while. feel free to throw out some ideas!

damn that looks sweet!!!!! where did you find that? not a real big fan of the drag look but that looks pretty good. heres some shots of my bike after i put the full akrapovic exhaust on and cleaned up the rear. still waiting on the front flush mounts. and ya i keep the bike in the living room.

i really like the no faring single light setup that the europe bikes have. anyone know where i can get one?

Dont think so old FZ1 made good HP



As for the new one slam it
First of all just because it has hp, doesnt mean the rider uses it.
and second of all... i hope you were joking with that picture. thats like trying to make liberace look at a playboy... its just not gonna do it for him.
jebus dude... how dare you disgrace us with that pic.:wtf:

Thanks for your very blinkered opinion (rich from a 19 year old) it takes alsorts to make the world go round or we all would be riding the same i just offered an alternative

So to balance the books so to speak a gen 1 slammed FZ1
