  1. Bike won’t start!!!

    Yamaha FZ-09 Common Problems/Issues
    I’ve been having intermittent starting problems for about a week but usually the bike starts up after taking the seat off and fiddling with some wires. (Really don’t think there are any loose connections, can’t find any anyways) for whatever reason the bike usually starts up after that...??? But...
  2. Top Speed with Flash

    FZ-09 General Discussion
    Hey guys, I'm curious what other people are reaching for top speed with an ecu flash. I seem to be topping out at 130-132 even after the flash. Granted, I am 6'6" 220lbs, that may have something to do with it but I feel I should still be able to 140mph. I saw a video where a guy hit 157mph on...
  3. NEW TO FZ-09 - Any and all info helps!

    FZ-09 General Discussion
    I just bought my dream bike, the 2014 (any year works for me) fz-09 with 13,000 miles. Has Traction from fork cartridges, Penske double clicker rear shock, GPR steering damper, oxford heated grips (surprising to me) and a Corbin gunfighter seat. Seems like everything else is stock. It's exactly...
  4. Elbow down on an FZ/MT09, anyone succeeded?

    FZ-09 General Discussion
    Hi guys! Bought my MT09SP 2 months ago, used it ever since on the track mostly. When I kicked down the OEM tires, I put a 200/655 Bridgie on the back and Pirelli Superbike on the front. Now, I took the feelers off of the peg, and now I scraped half off the peg also down, but elbow-down still...

  6. Is my rear suspension okay? 2014 FZ 09

    FZ-09 Performance & Suspension
    Unfortunately I don't know enough about suspension. The body of my rear suspension is cracked. Is this just a cover? Is it okay? Can I replace just that piece or will I need to by an entire new rear shock?
  7. FZ-09 - Chain Slack and Adjustment (Video with ENGLISH SUBTITLES)

    FZ-09 General Discussion
    Is the information for the chain slack in the owners manual correct? I have my doubts. For the FZ-09 (RN29) there is a chain slack of 5-15 mm recommended, when the motorcycle is on the sidestand. This is hotly debated in the forums. In my video I show you the difference between loaded and...

    Hey guys, im new here. Im in the market to buy another street bike and I'd like some advice. This time I have my eye on a 2014 FZ09.

  12. ABS and TCS light, speedometer doesn’t show speed

    Yamaha FZ-09 Common Problems/Issues
    Hi, I have some problems with my FZ-09/MT-09 2017. 2 days ago the ABS-light turned on when testing the brakes, then the TCS-light came on as well and can’t be turned off. And today the speedometer won’t show the km/h, it just stays on 0 km/h. I think it’s all related? Thankfull for any help I...

  15. XSR900 Gauge / Meter on an MT09 FZ09?

    FZ-09 General Discussion
    Curious, has anyone ever swapped a gauge (meter) from an XSR, over to a MT/FZ09? I own an MT, any have installed a round headlight. The round gauge of the XSR could integrate slightly nicer into the setup. It looks like the harness connection could be the same. But also would be curious what...
