Interesting, how does the successor compare to the predecessor?

I love my FZR, I've had him for over 10 years.
Other bikes have come and gone, ZX7R, Triumph TT600, but I always kept my FZR.
He's been a streetfighter and a track bike, almost became a cafe racer at one point.
I'm hoping the Thundercat will give me the same pleasure.
So far I've only done 200 miles, but already I feel happy on it.
It's miles better with my wife on the back.
It seems easier to lean further.
I've had a bit of a mess with the suspension, not something you can do on an FZR!
The previous owner had it all a bit soft.
Bought it in Lincoln so had to ride back through Chesterfield, nice part of the world.
I will keep my FZR, it's not worth anything and I can mess with it.
Question, I have an R6 shock and I see some people have put them on thundercats, but is it not a bit soft?
Cheers for the comments.
I'll do some better pictures soon

The Cat is a good pillion bike It's hard to think of another bike that will do all the things a Cat will (VFR comes to mind) as for the R6 shock, I've just fitted one and it's a far better shock than what's on the bike. The spring is stiffer and the damping is far better. Well worth fitting.

Great stuff, I can imagine the 'cat is a step forward, I had mine for 4 years & now have my childhood (well almost at 17 lol) dream bike of an FZR1000r exup, I'm still in the throes of sorting it but getting there :-)

That's what I used and you also need the top bushes because the top mount is a different size.
