FZ 750 Road Test

Yamaha have taken steps to the basic FZ’s handling. In a of issues’ time we should be in a to comment more definitively on if and when a mega test got planned comes off. In the the chassis changes on the ’87 include lighter brakes, and a rocker arm setup on the rear which alters the rate of under full bump and 10mm extra wheel

This last modification benefit racers, many of have complained in the past the incorrect length of the suspension’s link. One assumes that the new is now more closely modelled on the racers’ units. Other have been to dispense the linked air adjustment of the forks and the shock’s damping adjuster following research which that a very large of contemporary motorcyclists never the standard settings.

There is still spring adjustment front and rear only now it is effected at the front by style screws atop the legs. The centre stand is on the ’87 model, and a full included in the spec.

If you can’t be going to the trouble of obtaining fitting aftermarket modifications, you always try to buy an Yamaha FZR750R. machine forms the basis of might at first appear to be open class FZR1000 and has trickled into this in very limited numbers 20 — Padgetts had most of them). the R is a 750cc version of the Yamaha

For a start, the R inherits the 1000’s frame, which has the effect of dry weight by 2kg. Then the switch from a 16in to a front wheel, with tyres fitted on much aluminum rims (3.50 and 4.50 rear instead of and 3.00). Brake disc is up to FZR1000 size, from to 320mm on the front pair, by four-pot calipers.

The R has thicker up 2mm to 41mm, and less front travel than the stock 750 from 5.5in to 5.1 in, again to the 1000). The R’s petrol carries one litre less and does away with the electric fuel pump We’ll talk about the mechanical modifications later, at the time explaining why this is a for race use only, and not really a road bike alternative.

Assuming that you have a FZ750, chances are you’re well satisfied with bike’s handling. The only glitch we found with our FZ test bike was a tendency for the Bridgestone Exedra tyres to go off quickly when hustling a racetrack. But of course it’s to be expected that shortcomings you would never notice on the can start to become a problem racing use.

With in mind, we rang Steve of Harris Performance. Steve was a of information on Suzuki GSX-Rs month, and he proved equally on the Yamaha FZ. Obviously, many of the that work with the are valid for the Yam too.

Steve acknowledged that the modifications which appear on the do solve many of the problems, but he the use of a thicker fork brace.

The associated with the Suzuki is not a on the Yamaha, so Harris doesn’t to alter the head angle on bikes. A special adjustable is available for about £150 allows a 31mm offset on the model (32mm for earlier Steering dampers are always a idea, but fitment isn’t a doddle on the FZ because of the fairing holding the choke/fuel switchgear.

Harris is currently making up a of Yamaha works replica which will be available by the you read this. They’ll be at the luxury end of the damper market at around £60-£65).

Fork should be uprated for racing) ones are used on the Russell Bateman/Richard Burden Phase One bike. At the back end, can brace up your standard arm. Steve reckons is quite difficult to do on the FZ, but their of £85 is the same, as for the same job on a Suzuki

There’s a bit of a misconception among racers about the rate of on the new arm, Steve told us. On the old the ratio was 3:1. Now it starts at and goes up to 2.5:1 — not 2:1 like people think. As with the Harris junk the standard shock in favor of what to be a White Power replacement, but is now almost exclusively an Ohlins

Serious rides will from having more on the road.
