Here is my FZ750.
FZR1000(3GM)’s front fork&wheel, R1’s front brake calipers, the FZR1000(2GH) rear end (the swingarm, the rear shock, the wheel, the brake), the one-off exhaust system, GPZ900R(Ninja)’s mirrors, Hurricane’s handlebars, the brake and clutch master cylinders of RC30(VFR750R), Givi’s higher windscreen.May 20, 2012 at 10:27 am #582Scott FreemanParticipant
Here is my mostly stock 86. Mods include: Hagon Shock, LE modified forks, EBC discs, HEL braided brake & clutch lines, K&N filter, Factory Pro jet kit, Barnett clutch kit, FJ1100 mirrors, Stock exhaust system (for the time being). Lots of OEM electrical, carb, brake and misc parts. Engine rebuilt to stock specs after the starter clutch began to fail.
Now that its basically finished mechanically, time to strip it down for paint. The bike runs great, especially up in the mountains surrounding So. Calif. Have put about 25k miles on it including several multi-day rides here on the West Coast. It’s turned out to be a pretty comfortable sport-touring mount with a 200-mile range if I don’t get on it too bad. That’s good for getting to the twisty bits in Central Calif where I can let ‘er rip!May 22, 2012 at 12:29 am #588Neil HurlbutParticipantMay 22, 2012 at 8:25 pm #589RobertParticipant

Here’s my FZ750 1FM,it’s a japanese market model,twin headlights,flush filler cap & anti-dive forks as standard.
I rebuilt it the other year,as it was showing it’s age.The engine required new shims.
I had the bodywork resprayed & the frame powder coated.
Bike has a Micron exhaust,I also have original exhaust system & a predator stainless steel system.
Rear suspension has a Ohlins shock,the front is standard but I want to upgrade the forks.I’ve got a pair of ‘Blue spot’ brake calipers to fit & I want to fit 17″ wheels.I’ll post a photo when everything gets finished.June 6, 2012 at 2:24 am #636
This is my FZ that I bought new in July of 1985. It has 13,900 miles and the only mods to the bike are the Vance & Hines SS2R exhaust and K & N carb kit. Rear footpegs have been removed and I bought the factory rear seat cowl when I purchased the bike new.
I still have the original airbox and rear footpegs, however the original exhaust is long gone. I am planning to get it out for some rides this summer for the first time in several years….time to clean out the carbs I guess 🙂June 7, 2012 at 2:40 am #639Scott KuceraParticipant
Scott, I may have an older Vance & Hines exhaust on my FZ700, but I can’t tell for sure because some careless person spray-painted the aluminum badge with silver paint. You wouldn’t happen to have a picture of the other side of your bike so I can see your V&H exhaust, would you?
ScottJune 11, 2012 at 3:08 am #646
Sorry Scott for the delay…I have a pic of the side of my V&H exhaust can…not a full side shot of the bike though. Let me know if you need a better or more complete one to view.June 11, 2012 at 3:45 am #648
Scott, here is a better shot…June 25, 2012 at 5:28 pm #663RobertParticipant
I have an update, new metzeler roadtec Z8 tyres, and now running an K&N inlay filter and FZR1000 2LE carburettors. Running smooth and little more power.June 28, 2012 at 3:16 am #670Scott KuceraParticipant
Sorry that I didn’t notice when you put your pictures up promptly after I asked. I see them now. Thank you for putting them up. I do think I have a Vance & Hines exhaust on my bike, but older than yours and with the simpler, rectangular plate riveted on. The other details really look like mine, though.
I envy your center stand too. I really wish FZ700’s came with that detail.

This bike started life being raced in the ‘Superstock’ series in UK, hence all the trick bits. In 1995 I obtained it in a sorry state, the engine was in boxes, entirely in bits, every nut & bolt, along with a lot of spares. I paid £400. I sold some of the spares for a grand total of £395. I built the engine up then the rest of the bike. After a few test runs I was so impressed that I then made it street legal & registered it for its first time on a public road. A few months later (Winter) I stripped it down again to slowly rebuild it to its present state. I completed it in 1999, A few years later Yamaha used the same colour scheme on the R1… In 2010 I emigrated to Australia, along with FZ…. Oh yeah, it goes like f**k !!!
If any of you can ID the spring loaded exhaust headers (Not the can- I made that) that would be most appreciated.
Mods: ‘Dialled in’ camshafts. Gas flowed cylinder head. Gas flowed & modded carbs. Bell mouths. High comp pistons. Lightened & balanced crank. Deep race sump. Full free flow race exhaust. Spondon Alloy tank. Ducati 916 SPS seat unit & fittings. Dymag race wheels. AP Racing brakes front & rear. Cast iron discs. Proflex rear shock. Maxton fork internals. Steering damper. Rear sets. Renthal bars. Acewell digital speedo. Remote control ignition. Powder coated frame (Changes colour in sunlight) Pearlescent paint. Lots of polishing…
