    Fzs tunnel reinforcement question

    What sort speeds does the stock set up handle ? Did Coco's on my FX but not sure how the OEM crap comes off the fzs tunnel as Yamaha made an effort and made a real mess and looks kinda hard to get off to fit coco's ??

    Stock FZ tunnels are only good to about 72-75 mph maby, A heat gun will get the green/brown goo of if you heat it till its smoking real, real good then it will pop off, with a screw driver/ small pry bar, Tommy Jordan

    Hello, hey Tommy, I have an 08 GP1300 with 43 total hours now starting to push 70+ GPS, should I be worried about hull tunnel ?

    the Tunnel can still crack on a stock GPR in my opinion I would reinforce it

    Before you start thinking about fitting one to your FZR you need to get the one fitted to my SHO
