I just picked this up for my commuter. I hit 15k on my truck since January so to cut back a little, and not add too much on the Harley, I got this:



2003 FZ1

Honestly I wasn't sure at first, as I was just looking for a commuter so it didn't really matter. However today I picked it up and brought it home, while I was washing it I found a small chip revealing blue underneath. The previous owner repainted it.

It's not the best paint job up close, but it looks way better than blue!

I had a Gen 1 FZ1. I put 47K on it and it is still a nice bike. Looks good, runs excellent. I sold it to my nephew about 4 months ago. If you haven't already, you should check out the FZ1 Owners Group at http://www.yamahafz1oa.com/forum/

If you pick one up you won't be disappointed.

I've been tearing around on an 08 Gen 2 I picked up in Oct. 09.

Re: TacPro45's Gen 1. Definitely a re-paint. Yamaha did offer a similiar color scheme in a replacement kit for the Gen 2 version. I have one tucked away for whenever I get tired of the granite color with the lower body kit.

Good all round motorcycle, bullit-proof as they come. +1 FZ1 owners forum, tons of info. Only suggestion I have if and when you get one, go to a double bubble screen for more wind protection, and drop a tooth on the front sprocket or go one up on the rear, makes the driveability that much better.
TacPro45's repaint is a style they had on these bike, but it was in yellow and black, which was pretty bad-ass looking.
