All my bikes have been naked, or standard as I prefer. Here is my current. The quarter fairing looks great but dosent have much function other than mess up air flow. I dont like the round headlight mod that some do on these bikes.

Round headlight mod?
You mean this?



That's no mod!

Neither is this:

Never understood why we didn't get the N version. They look so much better.

Agreed! ~$500 worth of factory Euro parts/hardware fixes the problem though. I did the conversion on that one, and it was a lot easier than expected.

Man! I've seen one or two of those FZ1s with the euro/naked conversion come up for sale on Craigslist and it always blows my mind that Yamaha never imported it here.

People always love to say that naked bikes don't sell... but at this point there are almost as many naked/standard/streefighter models for sale in the U.S. as there are fully faired sportbikes. So if they're really such poor sellers, why so many of them?

Agreed, though they've got the FZ8 here now (very similar styling). It always seems to take the manufacturers too long to get what people want to market, and by the time they see the light people are on to something else...
