New Guy Here

Hello all,

Im not new to riding but I am new to this motorcycle and dont have a lot of knowledge on it. Im a Marine currently stationed in Iwakuni, Japan and have found a 1990 FZR1000 with just 13k kilometres on it. I will be purchasing it after i am able to leave my house. Everything on it is stock, so my first order of business is to verify the intake restrictors are not present. Followed by blue or gold spot calipers and corresponding mastercylinder. But one thing ive seen a TON if info on is of course....fork swaps. There appears to be a million ways to mix and match and machine and weld parts together. Is there a direct swap into the factory triple tree or triple tree direct swap? I think i was reading the yzf750 forks and or triple trees fit? Any and all advice will be appreciated.

Hello and welcome. Both I and motorbiker have the 1st Gen model; 87-88.

I would have to do some research on your 2nd Gen, 1990 model before I'd be of much help. There were some major changes made for the 1989 model year bike, including chassis and engine as I recall.

I'm curious if, by 1990, the bike runs a 17" rear wheel. In '87-'88, the rear wheel is an 18" (160/60-18 Radial).

I'm sure there are some FZR fan forums out there. You should find some good information from some of those folks.

If he visits this forum, @dragracer1951 knows a thing or two about the bike.

I just realized, i may have met you at the rest area on 20 at Liberty Bell this summer. There's no too many of those around...

Maybe not. Mine is a street fighter, with handlebars. The original owner crashed it back in '89 and sold it to me in 2014.
