    Very nice....

    I've got the Micron high mount slip-on (blue to black fade effect) here in the box waiting my Huge Ind. undertail kits arrival. Hopefully I can get it all installed before the snow comes.

    Waddaya think of the '06 FZ1? They sure hacked the rear tail and put on a way bogus pipe...
    Other than that its looks like a good move forward, motor & handling wise.
    I will contunue my FZ6 upgrades...
    Happy riding(once winter goes away).

    Wahooooooooooo those are some serious pipes you have there.....I suspect a PCIII is installed also. I like the 06" and I don't like the 06'....It's basically a whole new bike instead of being updated. They split the seat up which looks good but you can bet it will be a butt burner.....and I doubt if any parts will interchange with older models. Right now I'm at about 130hp so I can't imagine 150hp being any better on low end and I where I live that much hp would be useless.

    I like the 06 FZ1 as a whole, but that pipe would go bye bye pretty damn quick. I've heard from the people who saw it in person at the CA show that the seat is an absolute plank it's so hard. It also has a more "sport" riding position but bar risers would fix that.

    I'm not going to run out and sell my 05 any time soon seeing State Farm just bought it for me in July after I wrecked the 03 I had. But I do like it!!!

    That 150hp is at the crank, you're 130 is @ the rear wheel. I forget what the 01 - 05 FZ1's are rated at the crank.... but I think it's like 142hp. I'm sure it has a bit more at the rear than you now but not much. Plus.... there is a point where a few more ponies on the street is worthless. My stock 05 is like the hand of God pushing me down the road now at 7k rpms.... When I'm done with my mods it will be MORE than enough power than I will really ever need... (note the differance between NEED and WANT)

    The current FZ1 is done more tastefully IMO.
    The new '06 has that 'cartoon character' look(Popeye lol).
    I would order a pipe at the same time as purchase if I was to own that bike.
    FUGLY PIPE!
    And from what I've seen from 25 years of riding, top-end power is always sacrificing streetable low-end. Although top-end power is incredible these days.
    Thanks Fade on the pipes. No PC III yet. Scorpion says its not needed, although I'm sure it would help a bit. Stories are conflicting on how well it(PCIII) works. And I hear 3-5 mpg loss pretty consistently.
    But I HAVE hit 147(indicated) in 5th!!!(not 6th) with more to go...
    So it runs well...
