Reggie used to race an FZR1000 at Summit Point raceway with WERA back in the early 90's (I've been racing since 89). I don't remember him racing an OW-01 but that doesn't mean he didn't have one in his garage.
All three (RG500,RC30,OW-01) of mine are Canadian models -bought separately from different people as well. They never sold the RG500 or the OW-01 in the United States.
Racers had to do dealer trades with Canadian's to acquire them and they were expensive at almost twice the price of an RC30. MY RC30 is serial#23 and has about 7kms on it now. My OW-01 has about 2km on it. The US model RC30s are the only ones with RC30 on the tail. Rest of the world has the VFR750R sticker.

Yep, I knew the about the RC30 tail stickers - that is the first thing I noticed. I think the tank wing decals are a little different. The light blue body color looks like a different color on some of them as well. I know some of the the very early production bikes had tiny headlights compared to the later models. Mine has 47K miles. (I have always wondered if it was the record.)

http://www.sportbikes.net/photos/showphoto.php?photo=10795&cat=500&ppuser=117895 Here is a pic of the OW-01.

I am having trouble linking back to my member gallery images. Anyone know the trick to drop the actual pic in here as opposed to manually linking it. The insert image icon and the link icon both give a blank photo when I try to link back to photos I have already uploaded to this site. Any help would be appreciated.

I put as full termignoni on mine as well as factory jet kit which really opened it up. Penske Rear shock upgrade as the oem shock is not ride height adjustable to allow the use of a 17" rear from an RC45 and keep the correct geometry. I have a 3.5"front rim as well. (the stock one is a 3" and cups tires prematurely)Of course I keep all my stock stuff in boxes. Check out my u tube video at Road Atlanta during the Walter Mitty weekend in 2012. GOPR00571.mp4 - YouTube
The sound from the Go Pro camera is awful and does not do the RC justice. Keep in mind I am on 10 year old sport touring compound tires as well so I took it easy in the turns. The stock gearing was too short for Road A.

My wife put about 50K miles on one of those. It was awesome - neutral handling and all day comfortable. This pic was taken around 94 or 95 - made me realize how old this bike is! That pic was toward the end of a very long day.

Well mine is getting a valve adjustment, new tire, and new RK gold plated chain and sprocket kit on it this year. The chain and sprockets are guaranteed to last 20k. I hope I can get about 60-70k on it. My brother's, father put about 100k on one of his bikes.

Make:Yamahahaha!
Model:FZ6
Year:2005
CCs:600
Engine configuration:sweet
Bike category: Jack of all trades
Use: riding (moto_therapy)
Modifications: Dual headlight mod, 2 brothers M4 CF, Mini lights on the fender elimenator/tag mount,Puig (sp?) smoked racing screen, Black duct tape to hide the zip strips holding up the wiring for the rear turn signals, The bike is blue and the only body mod is silver panels in the rear. Not sure if I like them or not. No engine mods, she seems perky enough for an old man as is.
I have several munis clearing (maturing) in April. I intend on doing a Supersprox 520 conversion. I think stock ratios will work for me. I value the gas milage over a little extra pop. To ensure domestic tranquility (I'm too old for domestic bliss) Big Momma gets a new A/C and a new sofa for the TV room. I'm going to trade the sofa for rebuilding the front boingers.
Any one put an R6 front on a FZ6?
The Supersprox is a new thing to me. I really like the idea of steel teeth on an aluminum sprocket. Only does it work? I really don't want to be cruising down the slab and have sprocket teeth come bouncing by me. The 520 kit is on sale for 199.00$US, which seems like a very good deal.

Use: spring/summer/fall daily driver.
Mileage: 51604km (~32000 miles)
Have 1,000km on it so far this season (read: 2 weeks for me), about 700 of it highway. So far, I am limited by the cold in riding time, not the ergos. I can do about 1.5-2 hours before I am too cold to go further, and need a break.
with a better than OEM seat, and a set of adjustable rearsets, I am pretty sure I would be nearly unlimited come warmer weather. she is awesome! And a hit with, well, everyone!



In the near future I am doing oil change (it's not bad but I still should for peace of mind), an air filter, plugs n wires (needs em), the fuel pressure regulator, and a new cam chain tensioner, along with tires. hoping to have all that cleared up in about 5 weeks. Tires and the CCT are first I think.

I started riding in 1994 when my first bike at 18 was a 1994 Ninja 250. Since then I had a ZX7 and a CBR F4I. Both of those are now gone and I haven't been riding for the past 10 years until now. I just bought this new 2011 ZX6R with 1 mile on it a month ago. This is my reason for staying with the 600cc class until I move up to a 1000. I broke it in and now have about 1100 miles on it. I just took off the stock exhaust and installed a new carbon fiber Akrapovic exhaust slip-on with the mid-pipe. I'm still using the stock headers. I also got rid of the servo motor and cables and installed an Ivan's server motor eliminator module. So far it's great. I would like input from people about other mods for my bike or other bikes in this class (power commanders, advancers, etc..) I will be using this for riding with friends and to work with the weather is good. I haven't been on a track before but hope to learn more from this forum and from others prior to my opportunity to then go on the track. Like skydiving which is my other passion for the past 8 years, I believe in smalls steps. I'm now a skydiving coach and videographer in the air. I'm in no hurry to bite off more than I can chew and I have nothing to prove to anyone other than safety is paramount.

Here is my bike below :)

All nice bikes guys. I still have my R6 when I started on this club in 05, with about 18k miles now. I love all bikes, but one thing about the new sportbikes I don't like is the way the fairing doesn't cover the engine anymore. I like the look of fairings that cover the whole engine, its just my preference. Plus if you go down lightly your engine cases are all scratched up, I don't understand why not have fairing cover most of engine. I also have a Suzuki Intruder 800 with drag bars for cruising!

She's a 2014 GSX-R750. Because fuck it, I've always wanted a Gixxer. Biggest bike I've had (previously have had 600f4i, Ninja 250R, FZ6R, R6 at varying times), but pretty damn agile. Suspension tweaking is a breeze and the engine is freaking intoxicating. Love her.
