He's been around forever in the FZ world. Worked with Yoshimura and developed a full exhaust for the 06+ FZ1. Dyno's do show a slightly fatter midrange with that setup, but it just feels strange for a Yosh on a Yamaha. He used to require a Power Commander, but his last update, after screwing with a few things...means you can take out the PC. Supposed to be better throttle response, better mileage, reduced vibration...just overall better. No cost since I already had the old flash.heard great things about ivan on the bolt and scr forums
Bike and gear were provided by the schoolGuess we know how @Wolf got that bike.Brian Roland owns Honda Suzuki in Warren. Last week he says a man purchased an ATV with a $9,500 cashier’s check.www.wxyz.com
When buying a motorcycle you should always go in expecting to have the bike resprung for your weight (unless you fit the factory target rider weight - at 200lbs, you're far from that). No matter how good a suspension is, it cannot operate effectively if not sprung for your weight.Also, the suspension is horrible. Previous owner had Andreani fork cartridges and a K-Tech RCU rear shock installed, but he was ~300lbs. So me being ~200lbs, every little bump in the pavement hits hard. Like it's solid suspension.
Not sure how much adjustment will be able to mitigate things. Might have to have the springs swapped out.
Yup. On my FZ8, going from stock 0.89kg/mm springs to 1.00kg/mm (175lb rider to 215lb rider) made the bike much more stable when cornering.When buying a motorcycle you should always go in expecting to have the bike resprung for your weight (unless you fit the factory target rider weight - at 200lbs, you're far from that).

Thankfully springs aren't expensive, and swapping them isn't especially labor intensive either. IMO it's worth the money to find/pay a great suspension guy who can sort you out. Worth every penny.
I continually find it astonishing how much money people will throw at carbon bits, exhausts, Ohlins kit, ECU flashes etc, but won't spend a few hundred bucks getting their suspension sorted out properly FOR THEM. IMO the best money you can spend on a bike after the bike itself is the suspension.
