OK i am brand new to riding the fz6! Bought a 2006 about 2 months ago(28000 miles and in perfect condition!)with the intent of going on a 1300 mile ride with my brother. He has an fz1. 350 miles into the trip "my valve hit the piston" says the mechanic while i was cruising comfortably down the rode in BFE california. He says he has never seen this with this engine and that it is the best engine that yamaha has ever made. And that little has changed with it over the years. My question is, i am in the Phx area and really enjoyed the bike A LOT, does anyone know where to get a new motor. Shop says cost is darn near what i payed for it in the first place just to have it fixed. New motor swap would be easier. Bob's used cycle parts does not have one. PS i put 1200 miles on it the first week i had it thats how much i love it!!!!!And that was after work and not used to drive to work!
