gsg9ff: Is the thermostat housing in there?
Douglas Wood: Thanks for sharing. My 08 FZ1 just turned 3300 miles and I was wondering
when to change the air filter (and how t do it). GREAT video.
xaxa102: Thanks! This is very well done. I just bought my FZ1 and this, with the
service manual, helps a great deal in preparing to do maintenance. Hope
you've got more of these!
65pont: Great video, and very instructional, but that music was awful...I'd rather
have silence and ultimately, the engine starting up...
alejogs500: Nice job man, keep it up
makemehavefun: i'm new to bikes. Besides the obvious, what is the difference between the
fz1 and an r1? Correct me if I'm wrong but I've read that the fz1 was
actually faster(higher acceleration on low-end to mid-range) than the r1,
which I'd prefer. Man, I'm torn.
edwincaceres: my first bike is a 06 fz1.....noo problems so far
Felix Li-En: I love FZ1, and by the way... I REALLY love this background music, too !!
SmoothbassmanStudios: @65pont Agree the music sucked. YouTube made me change the audio cause of
the music that was on there. Unfourtantly I lost the original video so I
couldn't remix. it.
65pont: @SmoothbassmanStudios You should do more such videos when you work on your
bike. Your videos are light years better in quality than most I've seen on
Utube. Heck, I have a Bandit, but I just like watching your stuff...
rcpro17: nice video also nice music
SmoothbassmanStudios: There two differnces in the Fz1 and R1 except for the riding position.
First the Fz has a different cam giving you more mid range torque. Since
the FZ was really designed as a sport touring bike, mid range power is
important for crusing. Its really weak on the low end. The R1 wins there.
Additionally the gearbox has a taller 5th and sixth gear which gives you
better fuel economy. Basically the FZ is more comfortable to ride, better
fuel economy, and cheaper insurance.
bowlsem7: Glad I downloaded this with the jamming sound. Great vid, I have an 06 FZ1.
Thanks a ton.
MilanM85: thanks for this... this is very helpfull..keep posting similar videos..
pople will appreciate this....
Charles Lam: song name plz, i like the jazzy stuff, beautiful bike btw
OCDonnyMac: Thanks for the video. Was trying to figure out my 2008 FZ6 and this was
similar enough to do the job. Twenty five minutes was spot on.
avantgarde120: Thanks for the vid.Just got my package today.Going to install to my FZ1S
ABS 2010 tmrw.Btw,I'm using BMC air filter.
luciax402: what bars are those? thanks
65pont: @SmoothbassmanStudios Yeah, you can't fight the man. Seriously, thanks for
posting this video. Motorcycles have gotten so complicated that even
changing an air filter isn't the 30-second process it used to be, and
seeing a person do what you did on video--once--makes it a lot easier to do
the first time. Keep up the good work
strikerchamp: Just I want to say thank you!
Frank White: Yes, the FZ1 is faster from 0 to 100 then the R1. After 100 mph the R1 will
catch and beat you.I have raced them so I know. But as smoothbase said you
absolutely do not want to start out on a liter bike. All liter bikes are
dangerous including the FZ1. If you don't have experience riding a sport
bike there is a pretty big learning curve.
Ronald Pitts: Haha, I'm missing my front body work from my 07 at the moment, I crashed 2
weeks ago, awaiting the new stuff will be here monday, then I can
reassemble and continue tuning with the PCIII, and head back to the hills.
Oh I run a BMC filter, I heard from my folks on FZ1OA forum that the K&N
didn't fit their airbox correctly.
bluemystic7501: The FZ1 is a torque monster. I can't get over how much grunt it has
whenever you need it.
RiviDude: I like the Lame Jazzy Track...
SmoothbassmanStudios: Sorry, YouTube made me change the freaking music to this lame track! Please
SmoothbassmanStudios: If your new to bikes and have never ridden before you really need to be
looking at a 600 instead of a liter bike. 1000's have way more power and a
very thin line between in and out of control. Throttle control is very
important on both bikes but you have more wiggle room on a 600. A 1000 will
break the tires very easily and you will be on the pavement unless you know
how to drift it. And since your new you probally don't know. Get a small
bike to start out with and then move up.
igotyofire: two different bikes for different purposes, need to get whatever you think
will be ur riding style
Ady11000: Thanks .
unverbraucht11: Hey, thanks for this man. I've got an 08 R6, and I'm wanting to do
everything that I can on my own. I'm hoping that the set-up isn't different
for some strange reason. I'd rather spend my time working on the filter
than pay through the nose getting someone else to do it. Again, thanks a
SupraTuned: Suck my pickle youtube. You have to have every little penny. If somebody is
putting that music in there video, chances are it is already bought and
paid for. IT IS NOT YOUR PLACE TO DEMAND WHAT SHOULD BE REMOVED AND WHAT
SHOULDN'T. IF I PAID FOR IT, IT IS NOW MINE TO USE, AND YOU HAVE NO SAY.
Rodney Sullins: Helpful, thanks. I'm changing my filter tonite, and I would have removed
the tank completely and from the opposite direction (and would have to
remove the fuel line). This vid this saves me some trouble.
Claudio Guida: and something else? for example, candles change? ...
igotyofire: lol the 07 fz1 was my first bike, im at 21,000 miles now, no accidents ,
stop scaring people,lol
tomkatseven: good vid man,keep up the work......ride on
tomkatseven: good vid,my next bike....fz1 baby!
plasticadam: And don't trap the breather pipe under the tank like the dork in the
workshop that fitted mine. Or you end up blowing the rocker cover seals and
getting oil evrywhere
