So, as you might have known, i picked up a pretty nice Porsche 924 recently. Well, the guy who was going to buy it "never has time" to come look at it, and I'd like to get the thing gone before snow flies. Like i always do, I hit craigslist trying to find a way to get rid of it. Well, a guy about 45 miles from me has a 2004 Yamaha FZ6. Anyone have any experience with the 6? I imagine it'll be quite rev-happier than the 919 and that's what it'd take to keep the bike happy. Wind protection would be nice and its got a 2 Bros system, new chains and sprockets and all that. Link below.
Since you want to get rid of the car, and it sounds like you like the bike, and it does look good, I say go for it!
Unless you bought the 924 for 10 grand last week........then you obviously would want your money back.
I Can and will ride anything!

i sold my 07 fz6 a couple of months ago,i bought it new and had it almost three years and had no problems with it at all i just wanted a little more power out on the road so got my 06 919 1 1/2 years ago and had a hard time selling the fz so i had both for around one year.the fz handled better to me and had better brakes. it does like to rev but i dont think you could ever hurt that little motor.
Wife has an 06 FZ6 and loves it. I've ridden it a few of times. You do have to keep the revs up to stay in the power band, but its not bad. Been on the highway at 75-80 mph and it cruised right along. It's a nice bike.
I refuse to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!
Several years ago I was deciding between an FZ6 and an SV650. Ended up with the SV, which I'm glad, but it seems to me that either the 04 or 05 FZ (or both) had a consistent problem with fuel injection that Yamaha fixed with the 06 model. Going off memory here, so you might double check me on that.
my good buddy has one and loves the bike. i dont know what your main purpose or the bike will be? but when my friend and i go riding in the mountains i am always waiting for him at the end of our run. i dont know if it is the bike or the rider or both. it is a good looking bike though. better looking than the car i think.
