Yamaha FZ6 Modifications to Consider 2

Welcome to part 2 of my series the different modifications that are for the Yamaha FZ6 motorcycle. It seems every time I turn I find something new that can be to my FZ6. In Part 1 of this I discussed the aftermarket possibilities of exhaust, windscreens, and seats.

In 2 I will give an overview of the available for new grips, levers, and sets. In contrast to a powertrain these are mostly aesthetic and rather than performance Let’s get to it.

* Grips — are a couple of reasons to consider new grips for the Yamaha FZ6. One is comfort. Some find the grips on the FZ6 are too small and not comfortable for long rides. Increasing the of the grips, for some, increases comfort and puts less on the hands and wrist.

In addition, there are grips contain gel which will, for reasons, increase grip Another reason to consider new is for their aesthetic value. The that come stock the FZ6 are black and very nondescript. grips are available that bright colors and logos display brand loyalty other things.

Being one of the expensive modifications, this be a good one to consider if it is of any interest to you at

* Levers — The levers come on the Yamaha FZ6 are pretty and similar to what you’d see on any stock motorcycle. They are silver, and have a larger end on them. They are fine for they were designed but there is something to be gained by to after-market levers. The same two for replacing grips applies to

Changing grips can provide a enhancement as well as an aesthetic Additionally, though, some provide some added features that make easier to adjust than Many after-market levers are a bit than the stock versions and the use of two or three fingers for shifting and without the extra length of the pinching the remaining fingers.

As riders get more advanced and with shifting and braking, levers can be much more and easy to use. Aesthetically after-market levers are available in a of colors and styles that can be to highlight or contrast the bike’s and design. Lastly, many come now with the ability to lever position on-the-fly to for brake fade and clutch

This can be a great help as with the stock levers require more work to the same adjustments. Some also include the ability to the levers near their points. This can certainly in handy if excessive pressure is to the ends of the levers.

Rather breaking something more the lever simply folds up.

* — Rearsets make up the footpegs, shifting lever, and brake lever. I haven’t as much about rearsets for the FZ6 as I have other modifications, but are out there and worth mentioning. of the reasons for replacing the rearsets are to the other modifications I’ve There is comfort/usability and aesthetics. rearsets typically have the to be adjusted forward, backward, up, and

This is a definite advantage seeking additional comfort and riding position. In addition to after-market rearsets are typically of quality than original Many note that the is much crisper and cleaner and braking is also more Some drawbacks are that rearset pegs are fixed, and will not fold up in case of a or anything catching on it.

This be detrimental to the mechanisms attached to the if the force on them is great Some rearsets that I like the looks of are the Rizoma (pictured). One thing to note, is that they’re built for the FZ6 which doesn’t have a center stand like the version, and they in terfere each other.

Slight modification is necessary to get to fit properly.
