I'm 14 stone and 6'3". I found the FZ7 to be a more comfortable ride and fit to the FZ9. With the 7 the back of my butt fit nicely against the stepped seat. On the 9 the seat slopes forward and my...

If the fz9 engine was in the fz7, I would strongly consider buying one. I prefer the riding position, width and angle of the handlebars, the seat and look of the fz7, much more. Seeing as I am one...

It would be interesting to know how many they sold. In Canada they sell the CB1100 for close to $15,ooo Canadian. The new FZ9 is selling for $8999. I imagine that Yamaha will sell quite a few. ...

The only way I can see that you wouldn't burn your legs on it now and then is to carefully ride with your knees away from the tank (we are talking the left side). That to me makes it a stupid idea...

Enjoy your bike. If it makes you a happy owner, then you have the right one. Just not for me. Of course 10 years from now I may look at your old bike and say, I'd like one of those old bikes.

In Canada the price for a CB1100 is $13600 plus tax. You can buy an old CB900f for as little as $500 to $1000. Put say about $2000 into it and for $3000 you will have a bike that can do 95% of what...
