The good news and the bad news... Death of the FZR Genesis

Postby spook » Sat Jul 13, 2013 11:49 pm

The bad news is Wiseco has stopped producing its 1029 kits for the 18 mm gudgeon pinned FZR1000 Genesis... The good is that you can still buy over-sized oem pistons from Yamaha... The bad is you probably wont be able to for much longer... The good is that the Wiseco 1040 kits are still available, and second hand ex-up (19 mm rods) are plentiful on the second hand market, and they fit the Genesis motors.

Whatever the case... don't despair there is always a solution??

Keep smiling... :lolno:

I believe the 1070 have gone as well. 1040 are available for now.

I think JE only ever made a 1040 Kit though. Certainly sucks about the 1070's though, that's for sure. I'd bet they still have a few sets around though.

I have'nt looked at this for a while, but from memory R1 rods and +3 JE R1 pistons. Much ligher rods, and pistons are less as well. I emailed JE about using them in the FZR's (valve pockets) and they said "yeah no worries" :thumbup:
