Transformed the FZ6R

Yeah, so I had to sell my beloved CBR954RR. Looong story.
I hated the upright position of the FZ6R. I am stuck with it so I made lemonade out of lemons.
Added flushmount front signals, fender eliminator, better lower profile mirrors, and some woodcraft clip-ons. Much better now.

Before:
Transformed the FZ6R

I don't know why you got a FZ6 in the first place, but why didn't you just get an R6?

Looks nice but I gotta ask...

Are the forks supposed to be that high in the triple clamp?
If you had to raise them that much seems like that would negatively affect the handling.

Nah, the FZ6R's come nose high from the factory. Lowering them 1.5-2 inches is just what the doctor ordered to spruce up the handling of these things.

Same as lowering any other bike. Loosen the clamps and slide the forks up unitl it's low enough for you. For the clip-ons you need at lease 1.5 inches.
