Hi all,
I've been lurking for some time now. Over the last year or so I've been mulling over ideas for adding the third wheel to my '05 FZ1. Anyone here have experience with HPS based on the Yammie?

cheers

I work for a Yamaha dealer in the workshop, so I've ridden many FJRs. You couldn't pay me enough to swap my FZ1 for an FJR! Wink

Copy the web address, Go to Google, click on language tools and paste the address in the "translate web page" box.

Good Luck on your project. While there is a great deal of info on this site there are 100 times that in HP knowlege and experience by many of these members. Earlier this year the site was shut down and a tremendous amount of information and detailed pictures of projects in progress was lost. I know the gurus won't mind if I say feel free to ask questions as you progress, they love to help!

If you get started soon you might even make the June 20th High Performance Sidecar Gathering in Maggie Valley North Carolina. Some of the greatest roads in North America and the "gurus" are all in attendance. It would be a great venue to show off the FZ1's responsiveness! Wink
