Re: FZ1 Farkling has begun

Frank ... 16 west of KVILLE is grown up and full of traffic. The switchbacks are now widow makers.

We came back on 1050/470 near Bandera and the 16 home.

Tony ... I could get used to this.

Doug ... cinch it up tight.

Re: FZ1 Farkling has begun

Back on topic, added another farkle to the FZ1. A factory center stand. Woo Hoo!

Re: FZ1 Farkling has begun

Woohoo, didn't even notice that it didn't have one. Good upgrade.

Re: FZ1 Farkling has begun

Thanks Jasen. I must admit it was probably the easiest mod I have done to her. Hardest part was turning on the parts washer and drying everything afterwards. The stand hardly looks used and I was in for $60.00 or so. Nicely done.

Hmm, our fz doesn't have a centerstand neither. Weird.

Well, they are cheap used and really easy to install if you so desire.

Re: FZ1 Farkling has begun

Just did the Seat Concepts seat install yesterday. Came out great. Love their stuff. I am waiting for a new front sprocket washer then I will pop off the side cover again, install the washer and a set of Vortex rearsets. Should complete the current round of farkling.

I am thinking for now I will leave 'em be. The brakes are plenty powerful for even me, so I get to save some cash. Maybe down the road I will hit it.

I suppose that 99.99999999999999999999999999999999999999% falls in the realm of "Might."
