Exhaust leak, perhaps?
Twist the right grip until you see G*d....then back off...just a little bit.

Put the stock exhaust back to properly diagnose it. Are the exhaust valves in the headers making these sounds?

Sorry for the late reply guys! The previous owner cut the stock cat and muffler off and fit on an Austin Racing exhaust that retained the stock headers. It DOES have an exhaust leak where it mounts but I don't think that all that sound could be coming from just those little leaks?? I will remove the exhaust and properly seal it with some exhaust sealant as i have tried tightening with proper exhaust clamps already with no luck.  :152:

Did you have a FZ1 before?
I had a Gen 1 from 2003 until 2009.
Was on the FZ1OA for a few years (and about 3000 posts) too. Was there during the famous jet kit wars! LOL
Still pop in from time to time, usually to wish my birthday brother Fitty happy birthday .
