    Here is the video of my FZ1 fly-by. Somehow couldn't record the sound properly but it pretty much gives an idea how it sounds!
    bike was under 6000rpm for most of the time during video.

    Hope you guys enjoy it

    @harsha645 Could you please give some tips and pointers about:
    1. What all documents should be checked when we are buying a used Indian invoice bike ?
    2. How to know if it's Indian invoiced?
    3. How to find out the manufacturing year from documents /body?
    4. Anything more to verify?

    First of all, let me mention that i always wanted to get the bike directly from seller instead of dealer. Though it might take sometime in finding the one wanted but it definitely is worth the wait

    Fortunately the person whom i got the bike from is very genuine and co-operative all throughout the process

    1,2&3. The first thing to check is the invoice bill one gets from the showroom at the time of purchase.Its not uncommon for the owner to misplace it, however the showroom guys must be able to provide another copy in a day or two
    The invoice copy mentions most of the details like time of purchase/year of manufacture and legality of the bike.
    Nothing better than invoice copy to verify the legality and age of the bike



    you need get the NOC in your name From the RTO in which the bike is registered,it should be written to the RTO office in which you are going to get it registered,Make sure you get this as soon as possible after the purchase.

    If desired if you can get a BOND paper stating that you have purchased the vehicle with the relevant details mentioned.Just in case if anything goes wrong it will be useful

    4. Since super bikes are limited in numbers in any city, you can know about it by enquiring with your friends or fellow super bikers if you know any!
    As you are looking at legal bikes, you can get service/accident details from the mechanic who works at the respective service centre
    Better to inspect the bike very carefully and if you are not sure about yourself, better take someone who has experience in this!

    It has been a while since i have updated the thread.Thanks to my busy schedule,dint do any long rides after the last ride to horsley hills.However have done couple of short(250kms) rides almost every weekend.
    Posting some pics from those rides!


    These are from a short ride on NH-9(towards vijayawada),As you can see couple of bonnies and a ninja250 joined me for the ride :

    Couple of updates on the bike :

    1. METZELER M5 SPORTEC TYRE

    Finally after long search and wait, the tyre reached me on monday.Got the tyre in stock size i.e 190/50. Stuck to metzeler this time as i just need to replace the rear tyre and its not a good idea to have different pattern tyres in front and rear.

    Will be shifting to michelin next time, either pilot road2 or 2CT depending on the availability.

    This tyre lasted me for around 6500 kms and i am totally satisfied with the grip it offered.

    Got this from Lets gear up,Banglore. It was a good experience dealing with them.

    2.PAZZO LONG FOLDING LEVERS(RED)

    This is mainly to add some bling to the bike and pazzos are always in wish list,so finally took the plunge and got them.However i changed only the clutch lever as the brake lever doesn't fit on the brembo set-up(which is not OEM)

    I stuck to folding levers as they dont break in case of small fall(i hope i will never get a chance to test them)

    Bought them from Performance racing store,mumbai.

    Attaching a pic for reference(downloaded from internet)
    Do note that this is "Non-folding" one.

    Really nice to see the FZ 1 doing rounds... Fantastico. Nice write ups too. Very helpful.

    How does she handle inside town? Weight management in slow 'stop-go' speeds i mean..

    Also, would Yamaha Dealership oblige if one wanted a Fazer 1000 instead of the fully naked version? If not is it easy in India to source and get the semi fairings with dual headlights fixed?

    Thanks.

    Cheers and keep posting up... hoping you take fizzy for another one of those long rides.
