    what year is this FZR ?

    might want to register on the FZR forum (google pointed me to it for the manual)
    http://fzr250.com

    i'm seeing........... there is an FZR400 manual on the site above, and thats as close as you're going to get for an english version manual for the originally japan only fzr250
