Hey everyone, I'm UFC fighter Ben 10 Nguyen coming out of Australia. I've been lurking here on the forums for a bit. I've always been eyeing the XSR700 since it was released and finally I was able to snag my new steed after my win in November.

Any others in the Brisbane area, let me know.

Take it easy guys, stay upright!

Thanks man. I've had a passion for motobikes for a long time and even though it's not the safest thing to do for my career, I love riding too much to give it up. It's funny that people know me by knocking out some tatted up jerk. I guess it's not a bad thing.

Whatever pays for some nice accessories to go with that XSR700 right? :wink2: What were you riding before?
My first bike was a 2001 YZF-600R, then a 2006 R6, now I have a 05' FZ6n which I've owned for 3 years and my new baby X(Sex)R-700.

Cool, man. I know Greece has some strong ass fighters. I always try to stay cool and I think riding has taught me that. Loose your cool in a tight corner and you're done for! Thanks, and take care!

Here's some snaps of her:






Lately, I've been obsessed with modding my XSR700 and turning it into my own. Here's my list of mods:

-Yamaha aluminium number plate
-Yamaha tank grips
-Akrapovic double exhaust
-SW-Motech headlight cover
-SW-Motech front fork slider
-Puig retro frame slider
-R&G rear spindle spools
-Evotech rear tail tidy
-shaved seat

Great shots of your XSR700, especially the first one.

The SW-Motech headlight cover never gets old no matter how many times I've seen it, reminiscent of a light house for me. Did you need to change fueling/fuel maps to suit the Akra exhaust?

Nah, from what I've seen it's not a huge improvement in HP. Once you start messing around with the intake you'll have to. I'm eventually going to get all that done.

Hi Ben! I'm a huge fan of MMA, I'm a rookie praticer, but big fan of UFC and many other martial arts championchips. Very proud of sharing same taste in motorbikes with a pro like you, fighting in a flyweight category with lot of competition!

Please push to come to Spain or Europe and fight here! Lot of fans!! Jejej

Hope you enjoy your ride!

Hey Ben, I wanted to buy those genuine Yamaha tank pad/grips when I was initially purchasing my XSR but the dealer I purchased the bike from put me off saying that they don't stay on the tank, they keep peeling off no matter what the workshop tries to do. So I didn't buy them, I looked on this forum trying to find anyone saying that they are having issues with them, but nothing! Can you enlighten me? How are your grips?

You have to prep really well. Clean the surface with isopropyl alcohol and heat up the sticky sides of the pad with a heat gun or blow dryer. Put about two mintues of pressure. Make sure you put them in where you want. You will only get one chance. I love mine, they just give it a nice look.
