I just ordered the same exhaust and looking at the YA-6814 K&N air filter. I looked at the power commander website and they didn't have a map specifically for the yoshimura exhaust. What map did you end up using?

I prefer the bike white, but I wanted the black Frame. So, I purchased my bike in red, just put on the white Plastics today and Yoshimura fender eliminator.

Yoshimura carbon fiber Exhaust and power commander came in yesterday. Maybe next weekend for those.

Here is my before and After, thus far

I was a day away from buying a white fzo7 and today when i bought the bike i also went with the red bike originally and purchased white plastics to change out. I'm glad i saw your before and after pictures because the black frame looks 100 times better than having a white bike with silverish frame. i also like how the front fender is black instead of white on the red bike. thanks for the build pics.

I'm on the exact same boat, really wanted a white bike but I just hate that silver frame. Where did you get your plastics? I can't seem to find any online, so just through Yamaha? I might just get the red bike and plasti-dip the plastics, and possibly powdercoat the silver guards in the rear to black.

i thought about plasti dip as well but wasn't sure how it would hold up with my knees rubbing all up on it and my jacket when i lean forward.

I had the dealer order them for me. I only ordered the 3 parts needed to change the gas tank for a round $150. i didn't think about having the front fender white as well but i kind of like it black so its not a big deal. I think I'm going to get the red pieces painted or try different plasti dip colors on them and maybe ill find some crazy color combo i like and have them to change out when i want something different from the white...who knows haha.

Let me know how you like your power commander and exhaust setup. I am going with the same exhaust soon and have herd that power commander is not needed but some have said it is recommended. Might go with the exhaust first and then look into the PC later down the road. Funny how we are basically considering building the exact same bike...are you getting shorty levers too? haha

Nice, thanks for the info. I would like a black bike but they don't even sell them in the US so it looks like that might be my only option.

Yea and I have a friend who does powdercoating in the area so I think I'll try to get the guards flat black as well :D

Sorry for delayed response... I haven't installed power commander yet. I haven't had too much riding time with exhaust, but i think I believe it to be running a little lean. If I get time this weekend, I may wire it up. As for the mapping, I agree I haven't seen a mapping for the Yoshi exhaust. I think the interface for the power commander let's you install the stock mapping and tweak specific settings. I'll let you know. As for shorty levers, maybe. Let me know if you do them, I'd like to see them. Plastics cost me about $200 from dealer.

How did you do the fender eliminator? I like getting that moved up like you did.

Thanks!

I really wish someone would do this with the liquid graphite so I can see white plastics with the blurple. Guess I may have to be the first.
