    '92 fzr1000

    Long story short, I bid on this '92 FZR 1000 on ebay thinking I would be outbid. Turns out, I won (because no one else bid). So I hit the road to Iowa to pick it up this weekend. Always wanted one of these in high school so I guess I can cross this off my bucket list...

      Wow,you sure collect bucket-list bikes.I rode my buddy's fzr750 like that.....scary-monsters of a powerband. 7 grand on the tach and the thing would rip your grip off the bars if you weren't ready.Wasn't fun mid-corner.

        I'll find out for myself soon. Going through my routine fluid flush, valve clearance, and carb rejet for elevation before I take it out on the road.

            Yeah, nice!! A friend traded some artwork for a 92 1000 recently and is going thru it. And it needs some going thru!

            Nice grab.

              Very cool. High in my list of vintage wants. Love the color scheme too.

                I remember reading about the 5 valve heads, the exhaust control for varied back-pressure. super nice bike. I think I'd only pop for the 400 though.

                  After about 2 months rehauling the entire fueling system (and realizing it was just a faulty tank sensor), I finally got around to doing some projects to improve the bike.
                  shock dogbones to raise the rear, R1 era calipers, braided lines, radial master, fresh rotors, and some weight savings through lithium battery and ti bolts, muffler...

                  Steers lighter, brakes harder and finally runs well after the carb rebuild(s)...

                    I don't profess to know a lot about these bikes but was the tank sensor a fuel level indicator related thing?

                    89 BlackHawk 2.0 - On the lift and being assembled
                    90 Hawk GT (color as to yet be determined) - Still on the shelf in crates

                        Yup! I derusted the tank and think I screwed up the fuel level sensor. It’s a weird design: the fuel level sensor basically cuts off part of the spark when the level goes too low to emulate running out of gas. There’s a “reserve” switch on the fairing but it just brings full power back to the coils.
