Hi everyone. My name is Chris and I'm picking up a naked 2007 FZ6 next week on wednesday from a member called "Dreambuilder". I just thought I'd make a quick introduction of myself since I'll be hanging around quite a bit. I try to be as little of a newb as possible... I've already done a lot of searching and found the service manual and read through quite a few threads in the FZ6 mods section. I have a good understanding of all the common mods from FZ1 bars down to speedohealers and the -1 sprocket... I'm not new to forums and I know how annoying all those basic common questions can be.

I'm a new rider, this is my first street bike. I had done quite a bit of research before settling on the FZ6 as my first bike. It seems to have a really good balance of features and seems to suit a novice rider well because it can do a little of everything. I've riden motocross for the last few years so I'm hoping the transition to a street bike should be smooth.

I'm an industrial electrician by trade, and I've spent a lot of time under hoods and taking apart bikes so i have a good solid mechanical understand and hands on skiils both in maintenance and in peformance.

Anyways, see you all around the forum and hopefully on the street!

Chris

i always hear alot of guys with moto backgrounds hoping they'll make the transition....and about the only commonality will be shifting gears....the rest is so vastly different....let me ask you this....when was the last time, while tearing up the dirt, did a 3000lb hunk of steel try and kill you ???
be careful

Welcome Chris, You've bought yourself a sweet looking fizzer, even though it is the blue color.

Dreambuilder did a good job on that bike. He posted up during his build, I'm sure you've already found the threads. No surprises!

I think you picked a good bike for your first street bike, given your background and it seems that you are a mature person.

I would be leery if you were saying "hey d00ds where can i get teh stunt cage for fz6!!!!11"

The FZ6 has great performance but a very tame demeanor :)

I'm not sure what his plans are, but I assure you that I will continue the project tastefully. I have a few things in mind already.
