I took the bike for a little ride a couple nights ago. Something came up that I NEVER thought would EVER come up in my mind. Why the @$#% do you need a 1000cc bike?! LMAO I got on a 5 lane road close to my house and nailed it. I never made it out of second and the freaking thing was at "going to jail" speed. WTF?! And here I thought my old FZR600 was really fast for the street and my 96 GDSX750 was fast for the track. Then I jump on this beast and there was no words for it. LOL But I will say that I enjoyed being on a sport bike again.

sounds awesome my first time on a 1000 i about shit myself because i came around the corner and hit the gas and the tire started to come off the ground. definitely can't crack the throttle like i do on the shadow and do like you said "going to jail speed".

Yeah, I'm so used to the 800 Vulcan where I can run it at WOT one handed no problem. If I'd of done that on the 1000 I'd of been in the road and my bike would of been ghost ridda! haha But it was nice to be able to turn without slowing down to 2 mph. It'll for sure be a learning curve again getting back into the sportbike feel.

I've read the jet kit stuff but that's as far as I've gotten.

his first gen fz1 carb kits work excelent . I have installed one in an 03 fz 1 and it is flawless . I also had his carb kit for my 00 bandit 1200 and it ran great as well.
