After visiting my folks last night, I was surprised to see that my dad had bought and installed handle bar risers on the FZ07. I offered to gas up his bike to check it out. Man! What a difference! I felt like I was on a Ducati or something! The seating position is alot more comfortable and that bike just rips! The suspension is a little on the budget side but, IMO, with a more comfortable seat and a taller windscreen(and maybe some side cases)this bike has got to be in the top 3 for dollar to value! I'm jealous😛
