Summary:

SWEET, fast and fun to ride

Faults:

Nothing major, just needed a valve adjustment and a few new pieces of bodywork.

General Comments:

This is a very sweet ride. I'm 49 years old and have owned many bikes in my lifetime. The 1000 is one of the finest bikes I've owned.

Its brakes are outstanding for a heavy motorcycle. The brakes have excellent feel.

The power is good, and this motorcycle has plenty of top end speed.

I ride this machine all the time. I take long trips every year on this bike. It has never broken down on me, and I trust this bike with my life. It goes, it stops. This is a far better long distance bike than my R-1.

Summary:

Yeah baby, yeah I love it, I love it!!!

Faults:

Minor cosmetic wear, & the valve cover gasket started to leak. The clutch slave cylinder gaskets had a small leak as well.

General Comments:

A blast from the past, this bike is 15 years old & will hang with just about any stock 1000 out there.

Highly dependable & effortless to ride.

A few modifications & this bike is an absolute scorcher.

Buy it, ride it, love it. The FZR is an awesome bike.
