Buying a bike begins at Bikez! Sponsored Ad I came from the -09 to the -10. For me, I really don't mind. Got my M1 a few years ago, but the timing and money never quite worked out for buying a bike of my own. Sorry for all of the questions. I had been saving up for quite some time, and this bike is so reasonably priced, I couldn't say no.
I have never worked on motorcycles, and my work on cars has been extremely limited. The stepwise instructions include supporting photography and diagrams to enhance your understanding of the repair, service or maintenance target projects. I have a few friends that have daytonas and street triples as well, zero issues. My hands clamp the bars a little too tightly. Price is a consideration for many riders but I am lucky that it didn't affect me, I could afford any of the bikes without too much effort. I do all those and more, like engine work. I think in the future if Yamaha does a update to the rear section, I might see if I can swap it over onto mine.
That makes me like it even more. A rear stand makes this job super easy. Wind shear definitely less than the -07. Those sorts of things are generally pretty easy to access. The bike is an absolute beast though with that flat torque curve.
I know the reasonable answer is that it depends on the rider, but some bikes are just bad ideas for beginners, no matter what, and I wanted to see if this one fell into that category around here. A rear stand is very helpful. Just like the engine, the transmission was also on par with my Triumph. On the road that translated to comfortably flat-footing the bike at stops, but I can see concern about getting uncomfortable in long stretches of hugging the tank when things gets sporty. To redo lines, one of these helps So anyway,a small investment in tools will allow you to do all the work yourself, and never have to rely on a shop to take your bike. Closing thoughts Pulling back into the lot I was disappointed the ride was over. These have all been around for a while.
Keeping your chain clean, lubed, and properly adjusted is a very important an easy task. You can change the clutch in an hour. The seat is tapered to heighten the impression of smallness, and it's just right. One ride totally dismissed this as it feels exactly the same as the other models regarding weight and feels almost identical to the -09 to sit on and move around manually. A very nice, well-sorted bike, with the tractable deliivery you expect from a twin, but still plenty of power.
The bike in general appears a bit tall, especially considering its 689 cc stature more on that in a minute ; when I think 700 I think 650 ish sport bikes and the Savage 650 which is anything but tall. Just spin it with your hand in neutral unless you hate having all your fingers. You don't adjust the gap on spark plugs for the fz-07, you just replace them at the recommended interval. Overall rating: Details below 71. It's a chance to admire the little Yamaha in motion. Most items will ship the same business day an order is placed, however if an item requires additional processing time a message will be shown indicating such. It was not designed to be a specific track day bike.
Yamaha makes good reliable machinery, that is a main factor in why I stick with them. I do wish it had more power to be honest, but over 80mph without a windscreen is pretty brutal anyways. The top speed claimed as of now for the same is 214 kmph. I really liked the bike overall. I'm going to ride stock until I get familiar with the bike enough before I begin making those decisions. That is fine, but the tactile feel of a well machined lever that is adjusted to your finger reach adds a lot to the enjoyment for me. Smooth ride, excellent handling, and the only down side is that I'm in the break in period.
We also use the ratings to list the. You can find the service manual online somewhere or buy it. Do you have an opinion about the engine performance, reliablity, racing capabilities, touring capabilities, repair and maintenance cost, accident risk, etc? Just like the cruise control and steering stabilizer. . We need bikes that aren't fussy or overly-focused. When sitting on the bike with my feet on the ground, it felt like the pegs were in the exact wrong place to be in the way. However, if you prefer the fz, rock on man! I would say the experience between the two bikes is relatively similar.
However, it does sound like you are a bit misinformed on the Brit. Out in the country, the bike feels small, thin, and dense. The headlight was also terrible they might as well just not have put one on the bike. Still well under the cost of similar European bikes with comparable rides and performance. Lots of engine braking, and no slipper clutch means you can back it into corners, and just generally be an ass when riding. I still tool around on my neighbor's old Ninja 250 just around the block and still have the bug, so I'm finally back in the market for a 1st bike of my own. It will become easy to take care of your Yamaha motorcycle yourself and save money at the same time.
