Hey Guys. My name's Pete, and I picked up my new FZ9 last Thursday. I've had several dirt bikes since I was 14, and now, at 51, this is the 1st street bike I've owned (other than a WR250 I plated). Still in the dog house with the Wife, but I have really enjoyed the 1st 400+ miles on this awesome machine. I'm finding the same things that need improving as other riders my size (220lbs.) are here. Priority one for me is the suspension. I'm using the motoman type break in. Got some nice goodies inbound for this surly beast, and will be calling Nick Stoltech today. I'd like to thank all those here for their contributions. This site has been a great resource, both pre and post purchase.
