Well after selling my last one and buying a 2006 FZ1 I wanted an EXUP again and came across a good deal on a '97 YZF1000. The best part was that I was able to keep the FZ1 as well.

Spent the past Winter taking it apart down to the frame. About the only thing I didn't touch was the engine (well other than a jet kit and new clutch). Collected quite a few unique bits for it and now it's back on the road. I love that Ohlins shock big grin Enjoy the pics:

That's cool!

looks smart for a wide one big grin

silver spots too. Just out of curiosity...are the pistons alloy on those, the walls being approx 3mm thick?

Hey nothing wrong with a little "junk in the trunk" big grin

As for the calipers, I'm not really sure, but I didn't think they were any different than the blue spots (other than the color). They came off a 2007 FZ1.

Thanks smile It did take quite a bit of my time, not to mention $$$, to get it to this level. At this point I'm pretty much done, other than painting the front mudguard red. The black just looks out of place on the bike even though that's the way they came from the factory.

They look good but are a real pain to keep them clean, though.

Very true, but given how they transformed the look of the bike I'll deal with the cleaning smile

Love the YZF - such an underrated machine - and a damn clean one you have there too!
