Thanks for accepting me on this forum. I just purchase my first FZ 07 this past weekend and did a lot of research to get to this point. Some items my new bike has are Two Brothers S1R exhaust system, Power Commander, cruise control device, K&N intake kit, Rear fender eliminator, Plate mount, Grips, Yoshi taillight. I do have a few questions and would like advice/suggestions.

For the exhaust, the PO put the full Two Brothers Exhaust on it. It looks like a great exhaust but how do I "tone it down"? It is rather loud and would like less decibels.

For traveling, what does everyone use for saddlebags or luggage? I am thinking about 200 mile trips or so where I would stay when I get to my location so would want room for a change of clothes and other items.

For traveling again, what does everyone use for windshields that would break the wind a little? This one has a low windshield on it and because it is winter here, haven't really had a chance to try it out but assume it is too short.

For traveling again, I hear the stock seat could be uncomfortable. What does everyone do for that?

Thanks so much!

You bike looks great!
  • I've had many bikes but I have found the MT07 standard seat to be the most comfortable of all of them. Only my xmax scooter is really comfortable.
  • I've searched around for a touring windscreen but never found anything suitable. The only real solutions I found were Madstad & Vstream but they just don't look right on the bike. To date I have bought 3 screens but don't like any of them. 1. A small simple bug screen 2. A 28cm tall screen from China. 3. A Kawasaki 250 Versys screen which fits with a little modification. But just ok.

Hi. I, too, just bought my first bike, MT 07. I am currently putting on Shad e48 semi rigid saddle bags. I had a tail bag but I’m not tall enough to swing my leg over it. I’m hoping that the side bags are going to work. I get tired always having a back pack. Not riding now, live in PA.

Love it, though I haven’t put many miles on it yet. I traded up from 2013 Ninja 300 in October and winterized it in November. I live outside Philly. Just put power commander, smaller levers and saddle bags. I hated always having a backpack on whenever I road to work or gym.

The first thing is the gear shift. You need to keep a check on it because it needs to be lubricated once in a while and the second thing is the breaks and head-starting part. I've driven other bikes mostly so the first time I took a ride on it, it wasn't a comfortable posture but needs some driving to settle in with it. I repeat again this just might have happened with me but just to aware of you of my experience.
