bike Looking at a 1996 FZR 1000 - opinions

Recommended Posts

Got offered a 1996 FZR 1000 for about $500.  Runs, but needs some work.  Haven't seen it in person yet, but am I getting into an ass ache?  I want to buy it and flip it (maybe).  Any thoughts?

Canton? I looked at one in canton a few years ago. Was very rough. They're great bikes for the vintage, 5 valve head, reasonably stiff frame and decent suspension. Don't expect to see much on your flip tho, they aren't very sought after from what I've seen, but $500 is good if it doesn't need a bunch of shit. Make sure the motor isn't locked up, a buddy of mine bought one that had a grenaded clutch basket, locked up trans and motor and sold it to some dude who was gonna rebuild. .

It's coming out of Cinci.  According to my info, it does run.  Thanks for the heads up.

Maybe not flip.  Project bike or vintage racer or something.

I want a good platform to make an OW01 clone.in the day, Yamaha FZR’s were my favorite bike... looks and all. OW01 was unobtanium and FZR1000 is a great platform for a clone.

      Up for sale is a 2007 Suzuki SV650 that was bought from Brian "Tuna" Mullins awhile ago that is well known with WERA and AFJ, ,so he can testify to the background to this bike. I purchased it originally to build for an endurance bike with some friends but never had time to do it or finish it. This is a BILL OF SALE ONLY - TRACK ONLY, this bike is NOT street legal as it does not have a title as it originally come from an police auction

      Mileage:
      975 total miles

      Upgrades:
      pit bull 520 chain and sprocket kit, 
      pit bull spools, 
      Galfer front SS brake lines, new EBC front and rear pads, 
      GSXR steering stabilizer, 
      new fork oil, 
      pit bull speedo spacer replacement, 
      new dunlop Q2's, 
      SV Parts black rear sets (Not installed but come with it), 
      new ecu and new gsxr fuel pump
      new battery (always keep on trickle charger)

      What needs to be done:
      Tank needs to be treated, and I have provided a new KBS Cycle tank sealer kit
      stock bodywork reinstalled or buy race bodywork

      All stock bodywork and lights come with it, and I also had a set of old gen 1 R6 bodywork you can have it you want to retrofit. Pictures are of when the bodywork was still on the bike, it has been off and stored properly so you can chose if you want street bodywork or race bodywork on it when you set it up.

      CASH ONLY, NO TRADES, Bike is located in Columbus, OH

      Bike has just been sitting, I don't have time to finish building it or get to the track, so figured it is best to get it to someone that can put it to use.

      Thanks for the consideration, and hope it can go to good use for someone!

    • By what
      Any of you that have ridden with me over the last 3 years know this bike. I haven't ridden it really at all this year except down at the Gap, since my focus has shifted more towards racing and track and I don't want it just sitting around because it's a great bike, and it deserves a great, active lifestyle. I wasn't going to post this until spring, but I figured why not get a head start. 
       
      I'm asking $5,000 for OR. I will be posting for $5,600 on CL possibly this fall or in the spring. 
      I don't have a lot of aftermarket on this bike. Here's a list of what it does have:
      New grips - old grips were worn
      Fresh DID chain + sprockets, probably only 200 miles on them if even
      Fly screen/cowl over headlights
      Center stand - currently off the bike but is easy to re-attach
      Dunlop Q3's - takeoffs from my track bike, only had 1 track day on them... still some life left, maybe 30 or 40%
      Battery Tender leads - I know, can you believe I'm willing to let this go with the bike? Wow!
      Everything else is stock. 
      I keep up with maintenance. It has had the 12,000 and 24,000 mile services done at Motohio (24,000 was done at the start of last season). The bike had 22,000 miles at the time, I just decided to get it done early so I didn't have to bring it in over the summer. I don't think I actually hit 24,000 yet. I'm the 3rd owner.
       
      I prefer cash but I'm willing to discuss trade on a Grom or Z125 + cash.
