Hi to all.

Just got my fist FZR1000. Cost me 300 as a non runner. Plan was to MOT and sell on
Was just parked up 4 years ago. Only damage was done when it fell over - pushed?

Any way new brake lever and indicator plus full service will get it on the road. Was checking what worked and it did start, all good.

Ideally could do with a new nose fairing as it is cracked.
This is where I do need guidance. The one fitted is a trapezoid. Is this correct for year?

Welcome. What year is the bike. Pictures help with the fairing style. Use Imgur to help post them 👍

Welcome in. Drinks are on you, bar is in the corner and I'll have an UTRA-DRY MARTINI.

Always good to have new members.
Was the Wolsely 1800 your car or your father's?
