hey guys, got a 2002 fz1 bout 2 months ago, and feeling like itīs not as powerful as it "should" be, I mean , coming from the R1`s engine (supposedly, I know itīs different camshafts and all, but still)... I read a lot of reviews before buying it and after riding it I feel like itīs not that powerful. I mean itīs fast (mostly after 7 or 8k rpm, but Iīm not getting any power wheelies for example, not even a little lift off the ground, when I whack the throttle it just skids a little and thatīs it.
Please donīt take this as a squid post (I know it sounds like one), but the point is what could be wrong with the bike, or I just read lots of crappy literature... (I feel like itīs not giving enough gas mileage, too. I get like 15 kms per liter in normal city riding...)
