Yamaha FZ 1N ABS

Here’s the tough part. We the FZ6’s large half-fairing Our initial thought was to trim the maybe black it out or do something to make the bike cosmetically enticing.

No dice. The broad of ABS was killing our streetfighter mojo, so the recycle bin it went. In its place a lot of one-off fabrication following hours of head scratching and browsing. As the centerpiece, we chose the Cyclops headlight. It’s for off-road vehicles but includes headlights—a projector-beam low and a conventional H3 beam with an embedded light.

Removing the FZ6’s fairing and the Cyclops to the triple-clamps proved a of assumptions. One, the stock cluster wouldn’t fit; need something more Two, bringing the Cyclops on some sort of mount be necessary to conceal the wires for the headlight and turnsignals, in addition to room for the clutch and throttle plus the brake lines. (If old enough to have had a Universal Motorcycle, an old-school standard, you that the headlight shell was a place.)

Our solution was a pair of simple made of .080-inch-thick, aircraft-grade aluminum. Stainless-steel clamps around the upper fork and pick up the aluminum plates, extend forward to the headlight tangs just behind the face. A bit of time with and a ruler got us the prototype, whose was transferred to metal. Another piece was fitted between the plates to pick up the instrument bracket.

We painted the upper portion of the fairing (if you want to call it with ColorRite products to the Yamaha’s dark blue color.

Replacing the stock cluster is a Koso RX-1N gauge pack. This lightweight module includes all the lights, an analog tach, a speedometer, two tripmeters, a shift and a fuel gauge. It’s for many bikes through an menu system.

It is not, however, anything a plug-and-play option; it must be into the system. Most of the going to the stock cluster can be directly to the Koso, but a few, the speedometer, tach and temperature need their own sensors. means running wires to a sensor (for speed) and one of an ignition coil (for and installing special temperature (for oil and/or coolant

Unwilling to cut into the stock harness, we cannibalized the sub-harness runs inside the FZ6’s where there are all the wires for the as well as headlight and turnsignal Plan to spend a couple of to join the wires, add the sensors and get working. More information.
