General Motorcycle Discussion / Re: Gen 2 FZ1, anybody?
« Last post by VFRCapt.Bob on 03/19/19 12:01PM »
I have an 09 FZ1 and it is a terrific bike just like my 99 VFR in many respects but much more power and sportier feel. Saw one in Malibu with full knobbies last Friday. It can do it all. Had mine on the track twice now and it was quite at home. Did a touring ride past BigSur up into NorCal past SF and it did great.

His helmet lineup is heavy on Scorpion and LS2, but he has some Shoeis and other brands as well. The jacket mix is pretty varied, as a lot of those are consignments.

Yeah, a couple of us on a ride to Borrego Springs ran into him at the Elsinore side of Ortega Highway in the parking lot just at the end of Ortega. This was just before he opened up the store front in Corona or maybe right at the same time I think. At that time, he had a surplus of Scorpion gear if I recall correctly but he was telling us their intentions and looks like his venture has taken a foot hold. Good to know that they do consignment and credit for stuff you want to sell.

General Motorcycle Discussion / Motowearhouse in Corona
« Last post by Gone in 60 on 03/18/19 09:46AM »
Visited Motowearhouse (note the spelling... wear, not ware) in Corona. www.motowearhouse.com in Corona yesterday. Not sure how many people here are familiar with the place. I stumbled on it on Craig's looking for something, and he had some jackets listed.

Randy, the guy who runs the place, is a cool dude. He has a decent amount of new gear in his showroom - helmets, boots, jackets and gloves. But, he also takes in used gear (no helmets), and once you agree on a value, you can use it toward credit for stuff in his shop. I remember Yellow Devil gear in Long Beach, which sold consignment gear, and this is similar, but rather than waiting until the stuff sells and getting a check, you can agree on a value up front, and take store credit.

I had a few jackets in my closet that I hadn't worn, and had forgotten about. Took them to Randy, and after we negotiated, I traded them and a little cash on a new helmet. He's also looking for gear donations if anyone has anything they just don't need anymore.

He's a "if I don't have it, I can get it" kind of guy. Most of the helmets in his shop are basic black, because, as he puts it, that's what sells. I like more visibility, so he ordered me a white one and says I'll have it tomorrow.

Here endeth the public service announcement!

Yeah, sort of torn between the FZ1 and FZ09, but I should really ride both before I do anything serious. Just spoke with a guy yesterday who rides an FJ09, and says if I don't at least ride an FZ/MT/FJ09, I'm really missing the boat.

I really enjoyed the time I spent on one.  The ergos were very good, but 40-mpg was the best I was able to get.  It was nice to wheelie up the on ramps, but that isn't a requirement for me.  I'd test ride an FZ-09 and see if it sings to you.

Ride on,

Thanks, guys. I've read a lot about the FZ1, I'm looking more for comfort than off-the-line grunt. I don't need a race bike tooling around my mom's "over 55 community", but it needs long legs for trips to San Diego and LA. If I get one, and like the ergos, I can see myself relegating the BMW to mom's place and using the FZ1 for the daily grind.

My Ninja does that sometimes.  I'd check the hose clamps for tightness and probably loosen them wiggle the hose around a little and then tighten them back up.  The pipe on the right should have an o-ring where it goes into the case.  I'd replace it if the problem persists.  That's the problem with my Ninja, I'm just too lazy to fix it yet.

Ride on,

J~

Got it. Thank you !!
