These are my collections.  And they are all out of order.  Of course another one is set on my FZ, but it is also broken.  All the speedometers have a grinding noise and its hands are jumping up and down during riding.  (Oh, one hand is now off.)

I’m tired of setting a new (secondhand) one :<CIMG0534' IMGP7435' CIMG0865'

New Rider With A Taste for Classics (FZ750 genesis)

August 28, 2012 in daily life, maintainance by Cody

So, I finally convinced the ladies in my life that a motorcycle is necessary for true happiness. Haha, they took a little longer than I had hoped. Anyway, I final found a classic in good shape for the price. I only paid a grand for her. Couple issues I’m having with the machine. Bike is titled as a 1987 Yamaha FZ 750, but I never find the model under that year. I do not have a service manual or owners manual to solidify one way or the other. Maybe their are other ways to identify the proper year. Also the throttle is slow to close after release, I think there is a minor bend in the handlebar causing this as I have already replaced the faulty cable. Any other ideas? Any websites someone can recommend for FZ parts or good aftermarket handlebars? Not sure of the OEM measurements or how to take them. (true motorcycle freshmen)

Any help anyone can give on any matter mentioned or not would be awesome. Any ideas to make a FZ super clean, I plan on riding sans fairings. Very minimalist.


To The Hilt,


The hand of the speedometer is off!!
