Got in the last bits of Matte Finish CF for the FZ10 from the manufacturer to match my front fender and rear hugger.  I got in first to participate in there customer exchange program.  I send in the OEM pieces for them to make molds from and I get a set for free.

Hopefully get them on this weekend.  Swingarm piece will depend on whether or not it actually warms up a bit this weekend like the weather man claims.  It is attach to the swinger with 3M tape and I want it to be a bit warmer before I attach it.

A little late to the party here, but...

No FZ-10 here, but I do have an FZ-09.  I've not owned/ridden a lot of bikes, but I can honestly and confidently say that I have never ridden a more fun bike!  It may not be the fastest (although it is very fast) and it may not handle with sport bikes, but the combination of the comfortable riding position (quite a bit more comfortable than Connie for me I might add...) and overall performance makes it amazingly fun - all for $5.5k brand new!

I love Connie, but my bike of choice for anything other than slab work or sub 40 degree days is most assuredly the FZ.
2012 Connie - Black is Beautiful! - Current (EVO Flashed)
2015 FZ09 - Matte Grey - Current
2001 CBR 929 RR - Sold
1995 CBR 600 F3 - Sold
1984 VF 700 F - Sold

2018 Kaw ZX10R WAS my next bike until revisiting this thread.

I've never had a Yamaha road bike, just Yam motocrosser's.
 
ZX10R vs FZ10?

Comparisons?

Well as soon as someone loans me their FZ-10 I will gladly compare! Some of you all are late to the naked bike party,but that is fine. I have been riding and creating naked Sportbikes for a few years. My keeper is the low tech/high fun 2005 ZX-10 that has been run naked since 2006. I tour, track, and trail ride on it. Wifey made me get the C-14 (to slow down a bit), yeah, that's it!

Some detractor on the ZX-10 forum complained they had not changed much in the last 13 years the Zed-10, except for adding all the crazy electronic interventions and all. Newest one I rode was a 2012 and it felt effin fast, but than I got back on mine and saved myself thousands! ALso rode a KTM RC8, Aprilia, BMW S1000....none of them felt better by enough to warrant the cost and hassle of relearning and re-nekkiding the machine.

40K on my old Zed and just going in for the first valve adjust and second TB sync, should feel like a new bike! Upgraded suspension a little, weighs in at 425 full of gas. Changed gearing a bit as I felt over 50 one should stay under 180. Those FZ-10 are intriguing fo sho!
2013 ZG-1400, 2005 ZX-10R (Nekkid), 2012 TW-200, 1999 TW-200....and more to come.

You shouldn't. FZ10 is a great bike, if a bit thirsty. Tuono though... It is the bike the FZ most closely resembles, barring ergos. (Thirsty [especially the 11-15s], awesome sounding, semi polarizing looks [especially 11-15s], fairly light, mostly naked bike) TV4 handles a bit better and is a bit faster, but not blindingly so.

You ever wanna dislocate your arms try your lauch control on the Tuono.


Sorry for derailing, OP.

(I have a 16 TV4 1100. Add 10 ft/lb of torque to your 15 @6000RPM :D)
