I cant get over this bike...(now with pics)

so, now that i have my 15/50 520 conversion, drag bars, fender eliminator, gel grips, and tank pad, ive come to realize that our FZ's are awesome bikes. i did the bars last night, and after some shakedown rides, i see that i can accelerate harder in first without lifting the front and i can get a little more tucked. all around, this bike is rivaling my ninja for most fun ive had on 2 wheels. i feel a shootout is in the works. i get the ninja back tomorrow. :banana

What bars did you install? Aluminum or Steel? Any problems at full lock with hitting tank or mirrors? Did you have to put steering stops on?

totally seriously, i got the bars on ebay for 30 bucks new in box. i DO pinch my fingers at full turn, but the brakes dont hit. i didnt finish until too late last night to snap pics. i get off work in an hour and ill snap some when i get to the house. im loving it.

That's pretty much the mods I was planning, at least the bars, the FE and the sprocket.

Pics! We cry for pictures!

You'll probably find that you'll like them even better if you cut them shorter. I took 3" off each end of mine and it helps to not have to reach so far with your outside arm in a turn. I could never go back to stock bars even if I weren't a track addict.

after ridint the ninja back for 500 miles, i can truly appreciate the power, and comfort of the FZ6. still, the ninja turns in something viscious. i think i love them both. heres some pics of them together. i hope neither gets jealous. speaking of jealous, check out my wrx in the background. ive driven her 12 days out of the last 12 months. sad.
