Okay, I have to confess, the GSXR's not mine. I'm babysitting it but I do have full riding authority and trust me I've taken full advantage of it. :devious

And yes, those are burnout marks on the garage floor. That nice slick surface just calls out to be run on :burnout

Damn Jake,
Thought you got that GSXR & went to the "light" side. Yeah, I remember you saying something about bike sitting a few months back. Not a bad stable! I got a friend who rode her Harley softtail out to So. Cali from Buffalo this week & she needs a place to keep it "for a few months." Think I may find some room in the garage for her ride as she is starting to think this riding year round thing is really the way to live.

Sorry, the wifey parks in the garage so its pretty much a full house. Not to mention the other bikes would protest. I mean, come on! Thats like putting a donkey in a stable with a bunch of thoroughbreds. :laugh Sorry "Hardley" guys. (I mean Harley)

Give me the scoop on your FZ-1 as I am considering it as my next bike. :hail

I see Dale Walker sells an EFI module and a slip on for it. :devious

Dyno charts. Nice power :yumyum Look at the tuned bike's sweet torque curve. Looks like 8,000 rpm is the stepping off point to major fun thrust. That point comes in at 7K on the TLS, but the party sure goes on and on with that FZ. I like how the mods fill in the 7K dip.

I've read about glitchy FI issues with the FZ (sounds familiar to a TLS owner) but seeing how my TLS has perfect response with a bit of tuning. I don't see why an FZ would be any different. 140 bhp in a sit up comfy sporty bike is just what the Dr. ordered for my long rides in the thin air of the CO Rockies :)

I have delayed on posting because Im still breaking it in but so far its awesome. I've been pretty good about keeping it under 7000 rpm per the manual but man, it just wants to take off once it gets to that 7 mark. I have taken it to 9000 a couple times and it just flies. Hard to believe there is still another 3000 to go.

Handles awesome. I never really understood how the motards handled so well with the upright riding style but now it all makes sence. Only bad thing is ground clearance. Second ride out with only 40 mi on the ODO I drug the foot peg feeler all the way down a freeway offramp, and with several other trips up different canyons I find myself scraping my way up them. Left.......SCRAAAAP! Right........SCRAAAAP! repeat.
Oh well, nothing a set of aftermarket rearsets wont cure.

I'll keep you posted with further breakin results. :thumbup
