FZ1 maintenance records.

For those of you that have asked here are my maintenance records.  In the beginning I wasn’t very good about keeping this up but I think it’s a fairly acurate representation of the things I have done to my bike.

    You tried a variety of Tires. Any comments or favorites?

      I don’t ride aggressive enough to need a real sticky tire but go more for the 8-10k range tires. I’m currently running the Michelen Pilot Road 3 and have liked them so far. I even liked the Shinko 009’s that I ran a couple of sets of.

    When you did the valve check at 26k were they within spec ? Thanks, Marc.

      Hi Marc,
      Sorry for the tardy reply. All 3 of my valve checks have been within spec or so my mechanic tells me.
      I did the 1st one at 26k, the 2nd around 52k and then didn’t do one until 162k and only the 2 exhaust valves needed adjusting but even then they were still within spec. Haven’t done one since and am now at 219k. My mileage is down the last couple of years and I’m scared to check as I think this may be the lowest year since I had the bike. I know I turned over 222,222 miles at the fz1 rally in early May but I’m guessing under 10k this year which is depressing for my. I plan to do better next year but we’ll see.
