FINALLY went out for milk and came back with...

After years riding around on carburated restore project sportbikes, I finally got something modern(ish)last week. I had 3 F4i's and an SV1k lined up to look at when the settlement check from my accident at the beginning of the year came in. This is the first, and last one I looked at. 2002 with 19,700 miles for a hair over 3k. This bike is absolutely pristine. Fluids taken care of, new brakes, new tires, C/F Delkevic slip-on. It will be getting an undertail next spring-











I've already put a little over 100 on it. Though I'm definitely loving the smoothness of FI, the acceleration and handling, I'm not 100% liking the seating position especially after about an hour. I'm sure this is just growing pains coming off the plush banana seat and more upright position of the ZX6E, IDK. All around I'm very pleased!

Tight roll your jeans and ride it until it snows! lol

Nice scoot, the F4i is a hoot to ride.

I have an 02 F4i as well, nice bike with a comfortable seating position. Pretty easy to work on too.



Still prefer my GSX-R's =]
