Hi all...

Well, after careful considation I decided to go ahead with a 1994 Yamaha FZR1000. It's in outstanding shape for being 10 years old, and only has 6,905 miles. My "baby" has a D&D slip-on, 2nd stage jet kit, new rear tire, all new fluids, recent tune-up, the carbs were just cleaned and synched, new spark pug wires and coils, and runs like a clock. The guy I bought it from was the second owner and has owned it since 1995. Obviously the bike hasn't been riden much and has many years of life still in her. I've done a lot of ready about the FZR1000 and all the reviews said it's an outstanding bike and received negative remarks only because it's heavier than todays supersports. I believe that it weighs roughly 510 lbs wet but kicks out some huge horsepower and torque. And here's the best part... paid $3,500, and he delivered it to my front door. I hadn't planned on buying such a large cc bike but who can pass up a deal like that??

If any of you happen to ride a FZR1000 or have any comments good OR bad, please pass them on.

Thanks!

You're straight up DEAD. See you in the obituaries. Nobody should be riding anything other than a Big Wheel until they're 35.

/congratulations, looks sweet, great deal, and good luck finding orange/purple gear.

Hey Weaver,

Thanks for your vote of confidence. I'm not 35, but hell close enough? Lots of power in her so I'll have to take it slow for the next three years until I get OLD. Wish I could do some riding today but it's been pretty warm here for the last few days so I'll just wait.
Still not crazy about the colors of the bike but I have no plans of buying new gear. Blue riding gear is gonna have to be good enough.

I like it. Older bikes are cool. Especially big older bikes.

I want to get an FZR1000 myself...or an old Gixxer 1100 or something.

I love that color scheme, don't let any one talk you into changing it, you don't see that on new bikes, and it is beautiful.

God Bless

nice ride brother, older bikes can usually keep up with newer ones just fine.

Keep the shiney side up, 10 more years and it'll be a classic! Take care of her and it'll last that long, easy.

Considering you paid $100 under retail...it wasn't a good deal in my book. JMHO
