I found out that someone was able to fit a Kryptonite Cablelock 20mm 6' in their R6 trunk. I was just wondering if anyone was able to do the same for the FZ6? and whether it was with the tool kit, or anything else in there?
The only reason I refer to it is a trunk is because I don't like typing underseat storage compartment everytime I'm talking about it... but yeah, it's not really a 'trunk'.
I was just wondering if anyone was able to fit the Kryptonite 20mm cable lock under the seat like the R6. I don't have one, but was contemplating on whether it would actually fit in the FZ6, since we have the underseat exhaust taking up 'trunk' space.
you might be able to fit the cable in there depending on how long it is, but you'd probably end up needing to take out the tool kit for it to fit.
At the moment I have 2 tool kits, Scorpio Alarm w/ parimeter sensor & anti-hijack, backoff brake light modulator, and a 12V lighter style socket under there. I don't think there's room for anything esle at all.
But I also have a can of "fix-a-flat" strapped to the cross bar of the center stand and the yamaha tail bag. I've been doing my best to make the bike my primary mode of transportation.
I have the Givi v46 trunk - and to my surprise I fit a bag of ice, 2 packages of Heavy duty paper plates (50 plates each) and a large package of those Solo 12oz party cups, and still had an extra bungie, my kryptonite 6 foot lock, a kickstand puck, and an extra set of gloves.
I have a 8' Master Lock Python Lock that just fit with the tool kit. I use my tank bag for just about everything. Why you so grumpy again Jay? You should be happy since you will soon be recieving your gold zip ties. Had to fit a reference to them in here somewhere.
Somebody (who rebuilds HDs) told me that a Scott oiler wouldn't do me much good because with an 0-ring chain, the oil should sit on the warmed chain for a bit, but a Scott will just add to the fling instead. I'm still contemplating this, since he can be a bit of a crank (about helmet laws, for example).
My chain is really clean, all owing to the Scott oiler, it's been on for 13,000 miles and still running strong. I've never had to lube it manually, so I'm afraid your friend may be talking BS, you can ajust the flow rate adding / reducing the fling rate. But I'm happy with this as with every drop of lube that's flung it takes some crap with it and keeps the chain healthy.
I'm really happy with mine as I can just forget about it.
I was seriously thinking of the Scott oiler also, but came to a conclusion that for that same reason of forgetting about it will make me "not" check the condition of the chain on a regular basis. Lubing the chain every 600 miles isn't that difficult.
