Thanks guys! She's naked and I like it like that. Part of the deal was the "accessory package" that comes with the small tank bag, the carbon tank pad, carbon side pads, pillion seat cowl, heel guard carbon covers, the small fly screen and the much needed rim decals
- nice stuff, not all of it necessary, but since it was free, it's welcome. I have cleaned her nicely and gave her a nice polish and wax/sealant, just to make removing the bug guts easier - it works well so far. Working on breaking her in, I figured I'd stick to the manual recommendations for now. I probably have about a month left before she needs to go into hibernation, depending on how the weather will hold - she'll get some fresh oil before going to sleep, I figure I will be around the 1k km by then - we'll see.
Compared to my old FZ, she feels very refined and communicative. I like the slightly lighter steering, the stronger, solid, firm frame and of course, the power.
Moving it around the garage is a bit more challenging (heft and steering angle), but it's just a matter of adjusting to it - good workout
. I got some Oxford bobbins from my local dealer - nothing fancy, but they work ok. I will need to get the proper pin (I think it is #5
) for my Pit-Bull front lift and I'll be all set for now.
