“Brilliant Machine”

Written on: 27/11/2013

This is one of the best bikes i have ever owned and ridden. Awesome power, smooth, and always responsive. It is a bike that i want to be on even though i have three other different machines to choose from. Got to be a real future classic . Looks good feels good and by God it is good. Heavy on fuel but there are no free lunches in life. If you want power you have to pay for it. An eye turner if ever there was one.Great shape and still looks good. I dont think i would change it for many modern… Read Full Review

i am on my third one,so yes i love the bikes.love the way they look ( classic red/white speed block) the way they go/stop and handle in that classic heavy but stable yamaha 90,s fashion.they never need more power,only better brakes ( r1 blue spots) and decent sticky tyres and away you go,able to walk after a 200 mile ride.get one if you can,keep and enjoy… Read Full Review

“Well so far my thoughts on this bike are very good...”

Written on: 01/04/2011

Well so far my thoughts on this bike are very good indeed. The power come on very well, more than I could ever use on our English roads. That said a quick blat on the motorway slip roads and uninterrupted A roads see 120mph come up devastatingly quick. 145bhp claimed from the factory but more like 115-130 in reality. Keep the EXUP valve in place for full use of the power throughout. I bought mine for £1000.00, it needed a small amount of TLC but for that money I can easily blow away any… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/12/2010 by davefzr (1 review written)

Man, this is one awesome bike! The FZR 1000 EXUP is my first superbike, before, GS1000G, CB750, GS550 and a couple of off roads. Being my first superbike, i was a bit scarred in the beginning but got on quite well. This bike is all i need. It has so much power that i sometimes get scares on it and have to slow down (ive seen 275 km/ph on it). It realy stays with the newer bikes and also beat some of them!! I bought it for R20 000.00 from a good friend and only problem ive had was a small oil… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/07/2010

Put 600 k on it first 2 days of ownership. will put another 1000 on this weekend to get it home. RED white and black model.. complete with Yoshi slip on and dyna jet kit. Seems well sorted. I have 46 years riding ( 64 yrs age) Ive had RD 350,s YDS3 250 RZ 350 Heritage 650 2005 R6 and that's just the Yamys. This thing is minty and so good to look at I had to pick it up 36000 k and strong. Pulls you to Oh my God in short order. No need to mix the shifter pull it up to 120 thru the gears settle… Read Full Review

“The FZR bikes are excellent for daily riding,...”

Written on: 29/06/2010

The FZR bikes are excellent for daily riding, especially in an urban environment. These bikes are popular with motorcycle messengers because of their bomber reliability and reputation for being able to take tons of abuse due to their solid construction and build. The FZR1000 was the top racing bike of its time and it handles very well for a bike of its age. Upgrade to an Ohlins rear shock and aftermarket fork springs and you will have no trouble keeping up with most other bikes in the… Read Full Review

“I bought the foxeye model from new as a sports tourer...”

Written on: 25/05/2010 by InnerSpace (12 reviews written)

I bought the foxeye model from new as a sports tourer and it was superb.
The rubber mounted clipon handlebars isolate the rider better than all other sports bikes of this generation. This, in combination with the largish fairing screen makes it one of the most comfortable sports tourers around.
The standard shock absorber is fine for normal road riding but not very adjustable. Yamaha owned Ohlins at the time this bike was manufactured and they should have fitted an Ohlins shock as… Read Full Review

There's always! more power, she's a beast so smooth and forgiving. Lift the frontwheel and forget your worries...

Downside: brakes = not enough stopping power. Brakes could/should be upgraded to early R1 brakes, though… Read Full Review

Certainly one of the best bikes ever built by Yamaha.Perfect handler, devastatingly fast - it even keeps up with modern bikes. Only negative point must be the poor fuel consumption when ridden hard, which the bike begs you to do… Read Full Review

Yamaha FZR1000 has fantastic power, handling is excellent, mines the foxeye model and looks great although i must say i like the look of every model made. still looks modern even though it is sixteen years old. nobody needs more than this for the road and its not too uncomfortable for a sports bike… Read Full Review

good looking
more power than you can ever use
good build quality
decent pillion seat if you secure a minter then cherish it !!!!! The only downsides i feel are fuel consumption
mirrors
heavy by modern standards… Read Full Review

“My 1990 Yamaha 3GM/LK series is a California bike...”

Written on: 11/12/2008

My 1990 Yamaha 3GM/LK series is a California bike (just has fuel vapour recycler) but I have dispensed with the Exup valve and fitted a full Akropovic system. Full power is quite awesome but town riding suffers. Pops from the exhaust are cured by paying attention to the tickover - no higher than 900rpm and all is well. Rear tyres (Dunlop 208 - excellent grippers) last for 3000 miles with fronts twice that. Takes 4 miles to warm tyres in summer and up to 10 in winter - do not recommend trackday… Read Full Review

Good feeling on the bike, you feel confindent and just want to go faster. I have this bike for 1 month, it is from 94, 2 eagle eyes, and it cost me 1400 Euros in Portugal.
I had before a GS1000G from Suzuki and a seven fifty from Honda.
I'm loving the FZR1000!… Read Full Review
