Yeah I have seen some killer deals on them lately and thatís what makes me want to get back into one.

I converted my last one to the euro naked.

Nice. The naked and the FZ were what made me recently pick up a left over GSX-S1000. Loved my old FZ, love this one more.

How do the first and second gen fz1's compare

I've got an 06 I'm not overly attached to.

JMZ- My online experience has been that 1st gen owners are quite proud of their bikes and insist that the 2nd gen was an unnecessary change on a perfect original design. But I like mine. It's way nicer than my ninja 300 but I miss my SV1000S more.

Sorry for the late reply.

We had both at the same time for a while.

To me they were completely different bikes. Both had ample power and were reasonably comfortable. With out getting the OP's thread way off track discussing the differences between them I will just generalize and say I found the GenI to be more comfortable for long rides and the GenII to have a slight edge performance wise being a sportier ride. Since then the GenII has moved on to a new owner and no more than my wife is riding now the GenI may end up leaving to.:argh:

First gen was best, because of the Bee.

Man I loved that bike. I'm happy to know someone here is still enjoying it. :D

Oh look...a sweet raven for sale.

I loved the raven, but the dark blue one to me was about the best of the Gen 2's. Had to see it in person to appreciate it. I was all about the raven till I saw one.
