    Just bought an FZR, quick question...

    Hey all,
    Just picked up an FZR and I gotts 2 questions...
    1. What do ya'll think is a good break in time for the FZR? My FX HO was something like 3 hours below 30mph.

    2. Im looking for a little more acceleration and some more top speed (80mph is good) So what parts do ya'll recomend for that?

    thanks all,
    _mazy

    Break in --- warm it up for a good 5 minutes at idle and then let her rip. No sustained wide open throttle passes, vary your speed for the first 3 hours or so, and you're done.

    Mod to get to 80 --- read through the threads in this forum (Yamaha 4 Stroke Performance).

    Welcome noob.

    I agree. This is some very good advice.

    My FZR saw full RPM's within the first 6-7 minutes of run time

    on all my skis, ive done 2 hrs of no more than half throttle, then 8hrs of "easy" full throttles, then service, then another hr of half throttle, then "go time"

    It's best to do some wide open throttle bursts shortly after you warm the ski up. This ensures the rings seat properly.


    some good reading....
