  1. Hi all,
    Been a member here for over a year, but have only just bought my first bike so thought it about time to introduce my self.

    I've just bought a 2010 Yamaha Fz6r as my lams bike. Loving the low end, but with the top end the throttle restrictor limits passing in 6th.

    Did my first "work" on her this week, replacing the windscreen and installing a speedo healer. Surprisingly simple.

    Btw. I'm outside Bundy, Qld.

  2. Hey the tothoseofustothoseofus and great to see you got yourself a real rum of a ride there ;)
    And got your hands dirty already...good work! :)
  3. Thanks OldMate.
    Just waiting for the frame sliders to arrive, that will be a little more challenging to install.
  4. Sorry spelling. OldMaid, not OldMate

  6. G'day KenKen, welcome to Netrider. I've got the un-faired equivalent of the FZ6R, the XJ6. Frame sliders (Oggy Knobs) were the first modification I made to my bike - haven't used them...yet.

  8. I like the confidence of your response Oldmaid! It'll be a few months later than when you're onto an unrestricted license, but I want to be able to sell mine scratch-free!
  9. I don't plan on using the sliders either. Just a saftey net of sorts.
