This question is for a 94 FZR1000. Can somebody point me to a picture that shows where on the engine or frame the circled fairing brackets are supposed to attach? The descriptions for them simply refer to them as bracket 1,2,3, and 4. The pieces I have resemble those in the diagram, but I can't figure out at all where 11 and 13 attach on the left side of the bike, and I thought I had 12 and 14 attached correctly, but they don't line up with the screw holes in the fairing. I can't find any pictures of these in the shop manual (might have overlooked it, but went the engine, frame, and cowling sections twice) or online. There's also the not unlikely possibility that the pieces I have don't actually go to my bike (see prev posts for the story on that), or they're bent/damaged to the point of needing some serious blacksmithing to be usable again, but they do sorta look like ones in the diagram.
Any and all help is much appreciated as I try to get my bike back on the road....
Such a sad day for me - pulled into our parking garage to see that my 2015 F800GSA motorcycle has been stolen. Rode it Sunday, so some time between now and then it was taken. So heartsick... If you're a rider you know how much time, attention and money you spend making changes and upgrading your ride - and I was SO looking forward to getting back out now that our tsunami of a winter is drawing to a close. The police officer that took the report asked if they had permission to impound the vehicle if they found it. I said, "You have my permission to shoot the person riding it!" They declined to take me up on my offer...
If you have any info you can call me at 281-840-9572

Can somebody clarify for me specifically what the fasteners are that attach the windscreen to the front fairing on my '94 FZR1000? I've got a box of loose mismatched nuts and bolts that may or may not be the right pieces (may or may not even be for my bike), and the parts diagrams (see below) and descriptions don't provide nearly enough detail.
Specifically, parts 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 are what I need clarified. The 'official' descriptions are:
Does anybody have, or know of, clear pictures of an FZR1000 showing harness routing around the front? Picture below is from a '94, but I'm guessing the wiring on all the 1000's (maybe all FZR's) is all pretty similar. I'm trying to figure out where the large cable that's lying on top of the radiator is supposed to be routed - seems very unlikely to me that leaving it on top of a hot radiator with sharp edges is what the factory did. I've googled it, but found nothing clear enough to be useful...mostly just pictures of harnesses off the bike and many more R1's than FZR's.

I purchased this bike Fall (2015) from a CSBK racer. I had my mechanic go through it in the Spring and he refreshed everything oil, coolant, brake fluid, etc... including a full suspension refresh and new clutch. I raced it with WMRRA for 1/2 a season this year and did a few track days on it - ZERO issues, no crashes, and she ran perfectly.

Does anybody know what this is or where it goes? Background: A so-called mechanic disappeared with my bike (1994 FZR1000) after getting a deposit for work to be done. I finally reported the bike stolen and got it back two years later...in pieces. I think he spent the money then realized he was in over his head. Anyway, I'm trying to get it back together. I've got a couple of boxes of nuts and bolts and clamps and misc parts, of which this cable is one.
to make it short,
i got a speeding ticket in motorcycle, on the paper "vehicle type"(style) it says tractor trailer.
it should say mororcycle or 2wheels? so i think he made an mistake on that part.
do i have chance to drop the ticket when i told that to the judge?
any input might help, thanks.
For sale is an exceptionally-clean, never laid down, never damaged in ANY way 2011 Team Yamaha Blue YZF-R1 with only 5,600, mostly freeway miles. This bike is the definition of performance - it's hard to find any flaw in Yamaha's design or execution of the R1 for this model year, not to mention the fact that this bike is absolutely sexy from top to bottom. Here's a review if you want specs or further information:

I am getting married in September, and she says it must go. I will entertain reasonable offers on this bike, but save yourself some time - I am not desperate to sell, and...
20k km's, roughly 12k miles. New DR2 tires, new battery, never been anything except rubber side down, no tips, scratches, layovers, etc. All stock. Rips like an inline and pulls with the punchy torque of a twin. Hard to beat.
Includes passenger seat but I usually just ride with the pillion cover on. Pretty minty overall.
$4k obo / trades considered would be a truck // nothing 2 wheeled. I do not plan on staying in WA so I'm liquidating.
feel free to call or text me any time - 206 941 4410 my name is Stu - I can shoot you some more pics when I'm at my shop. I also have the factory service/repair manual and other internal Aprilia documents for the bike
Bike really rips. If you are a new rider or have only ridden 500cc or under I will not sell this bike to you.

Hope somebody can explain how to get the card off of a '94 FZR 1000 as far as loosening from the intake boots. I can't even see the screws/bolts that I know are in there somewhere and need to be loosened to get the carbs out of the boots, and I sure don't see how get any tools in there even if I could see them.
This bike has Honda's comfort package which includes heating vents for your feet, heated seats, and heated grips. In addition to the factory heating BMW accessory switched jacks were added so you can also heat properly
equipped apparel. There is one plug for the driver and one in the back for the passenger. The headlights have been upgraded to HID so night riding is significantly safer. The air cleaner was also upgraded to a K&N
cleanable element; if you are familiar with K&N you know the effect their product has both on performance and mileage.
This bike was purchased for commuting in the northwest and has been to the dealer for every 4000 mile service since it was new. It does have a few miles on it but the bike wears well and because of the regular service it
had it is in excellent shape. It has never been wrecked but has had a couple parts replaced due to other types of damage; the parts were always replaced immediately so it looks as good as it performs.

There is a great Instructor training opportunity coming up at The Ridge Motorsports Park.

I have a 2000 Honda VFR (in the faster yellow color) and I've been considering getting a new sport/touring bike to possibly replace it. Don't get me wrong- I love this bike and it's been nothing but reliable for me, but it's just that it weighs a lot and I'm just not satisfied with the brakes. Recently I've been looking at Ducati Hyperstradas and Hypermotards and Aprilia Dorsoduros as 75% of my riding is around town and riding my Husqvarna TE610 is a blast around town. However, I want something that will be comfortable for a 2000-4000 mile roadtrip (Canada, Western US, and/or possibly Alaska someday). My other criteria is:
- good brakes
- good gas mileage
- good to decent wind protection
- comfortable (subjective, just know that I've got LSL handlebars on my VFR and it's an absolutely perfect seating triangle for me)
- able to carry luggage
